Powell to Gilchrist,
edged and gone! Powell bangs in a shorter one at a good pace, lands on about middle and leg and moves in a tad, Gilchrist hops up and defends, maybe he was trying to get bat out of the way, but there's the thinnest of edges through and Ramdin moves to his right and holds a good catch low down! Gilchrist starts to walk before Asad Rauf raises the finger and West Indies have drawn first blood
AC Gilchrist c †Ramdin b Powell 7 (21m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.77
Taylor to Ponting,
and a piece of brilliance gets rid of a brillant batsman! A good length delivery outside off stump, Ponting lunges forward and drives into the covers and sets off, Sarwan collects the ball and has one stump to aim at, and doesnt miss! A superb throw that catches Ponting just short of his crease, even though he was going full stretch! Great work!
RT Ponting run out 35 (46m 36b 4x4 1x6) SR: 97.22
Bravo to Clarke,
and Bravo gets his man! Clarke plays half-cock forward to one that moves in appreciably from outside off stump, gets rapped on the leg, everyone appeals and after a good thought umpire Rauf raises the dreaded finger
MJ Clarke lbw b Bravo 41 (71m 47b 4x4 0x6) SR: 87.23
Samuels to Symonds,
edged and gone! Samuels fires one wide of off stump, Symonds stands there and looks to bring the bat down late to cheekily run it fine, but ends up with a thin edge that Ramdin neatly snaps up!
A Symonds c †Ramdin b Samuels 13 (22m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.22
Powell to Hussey,
bowled 'em! Hussey reaches out to drive a very full delivery and ends up dragging it back onto off stump! A tame dismissal and Powell's gotten a second in his final over!
MEK Hussey b Powell 9 (20m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
Bravo to Hayden,
full in the zone, no room to work with, and Hayden scoops this in the air straight down the throat of Samuels at long-off, and an excellent innings comes to an end
ML Hayden c Samuels b Bravo 158 (216m 143b 14x4 4x6) SR: 110.48
