94.2

Watson to Deonarine, no run, full ball on the stumps, driven back to Watson

94.3

Watson to Deonarine, no run, nice bouncer. Watson lets him know too. Just outside off, neck-high. Deonarine has to be sharp in getting his gloves out of the way. Watson follows through right up to the batsman

94.4

Watson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, pushed to cover, gets right behind this one

94.5

Watson to Deonarine, no run, length ball outside off, left alone

94.6

Watson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, well outside off, angling away, left alone

West Indies 240/4   N Deonarine 0* (5b)

96.1

Watson to Deonarine, FOUR, those gullies continue to stay interested. Wide half-volley, ND goes for a drive without any feet movement. The ball hits a foot mark, takes the edge, and flies over gully

96.2

Watson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, angling away, pushed to gully

96.3

Watson to Deonarine, 3 runs, more in control of this drive. This is pitched on a length, closer to off, ND is closer to it, and drives it with an open face, along the ground, past point

West Indies 247/4   N Deonarine 7* (8b 1x4)

97.1

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, 4 leg byes, that's a brute. This nasty short delivery has come out of nowhere. Pitches short of a length and takes off. Has ND jumping to stay away from it. Four leg-byes off the arm, to fine leg

97.2

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, fuller, just outside off, left alone

97.3

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, short, not too wide, punched away to short cover-point

97.4

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, leaves this short delivery alone outside off

97.5

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, Shiv sends him back. Full ball, driven wide of mid-off, easy single available, but Shiv has his hand up like a traffic cop, and ND has to go back

97.6

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, floated wide outside off, and Wade has more work to do

West Indies 251/4   N Deonarine 7* (14b 1x4)

99.1

Harris to Deonarine, no run, left alone outside off

99.2

Harris to Deonarine, no run, another length ball too wide to make ND play

99.3

Harris to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, outside off, angles away, pushed with an open face to point

99.4

Harris to Deonarine, FOUR, short of a length, into the rib area, tucked away nicely, to the left of fine leg for four

99.5

Harris to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, around off, defended to gully

99.6

Harris to Deonarine, no run, length ball, not too wide, but ND covers the stumps with a Ponting-style lunge, and then shoulders arms

West Indies 255/4   N Deonarine 11* (20b 2x4)

100.3

Lyon to Deonarine, 1 run, pitches outside leg, covers the turn, and helps it around the corner for a single

100.6

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, widish, punched to backward point

West Indies 262/4   N Deonarine 12* (22b 2x4)

101.4

Harris to Deonarine, no run, bouncer on the stumps, ND hurried into ducking again

101.5

Harris to Deonarine, no run, this bouncer is shorter, on the stumps again, and ND looks more comfortable in ducking under this one

101.6

Harris to Deonarine, FOUR, loose drive, but in the gap. Length ball, widish outside off, he drives at it without feet, and the ball flies through the vacant extra-cover region

West Indies 273/4   N Deonarine 16* (25b 3x4)

102.3

Lyon to Deonarine, FOUR, half-volley outside off, driven nicely wide of mid-off, all along the ground. Much better from ND after a shaky start

102.4

Lyon to Deonarine, 1 run, short of a length, around off, turning away, helped away with an open face

West Indies 279/4   N Deonarine 21* (27b 4x4)

103.1

Harris to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, just outside off, goes away with the angle, ND leaves it be

103.2

Harris to Deonarine, no run, bouncer, 136ks, around off, shoulder high, ND manages to drop his wrists and not touch it

103.3

Harris to Deonarine, OUT, this is a clear plan at work, perhaps they knew Deonarine is not good at ducking. This short ball is right at the target. Like a body serve in tennis, this has handcuffed him. Chest high, middle and off, Deonarine is caught in the headlights, and turns the bat face late, only to top-edge it to Wade. Good bowling to a good plan

N Deonarine c †Wade b Harris 21 (41m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

West Indies 285/5   N Deonarine 21 (30b 4x4)
