120.3

Watson to Sammy, no run, another short-of-a-length delivery, not too wide, Sammy moves in line, defends it to cover

120.4

Watson to Sammy, no run, got him in the helmet. Sammy has ducked straight into it. Dug into the middle of the pitch, just outside off, Sammy ducks, but the ball doesn't come up and hits him on the back of the helmet. he is on the floor. No verbals, though

120.5

Watson to Sammy, SIX, that's how they respond to bouncers in the West Indies. Watson bowls a gentle length ball, well slightly short of a length, and Sammy punches this on the up, going well over mid-off. What clean swing. And then stands and admires the shot with the elbow up. Photographers have got their photo of the day. Crowds love it too. Bye bye ball

120.6

Watson to Sammy, no run, short one now, down leg, easy to avoid, and the bee-like buzz goes around the K Oval

West Indies 348/6   DJG Sammy 24* (22b 3x4 1x6)
122.1

Watson to Sammy, FOUR, Half-volleys is not how you contest this. The same flair from Sammy. High left elbow, punches this between Watson and mid-off. This is carnage

122.2

Watson to Sammy, no run, too high a bouncer, Sammy ducks under it, Wade leaps in the air to collect, Watson follows through towards Sammy, who is unmoved

122.3

Watson to Sammy, SIX, Sammy is giving him a bit of a whammy. Short of a length, rib high, he clears the front leg and pulls it over deep midwicket, deep into the stand

122.4

Watson to Sammy, no run, oh, Sammy's big back lift as soon as he sees a length ball, but this is a slower ball and he has to check the shot, defending it back to Sammy

122.5

Watson to Sammy, 1 run, a good response from Watto. Lovely yorker, on leg, but Sammy gets the bat down in time, and takes a single off the inside edge

West Indies 359/6   DJG Sammy 35* (27b 4x4 2x6)
123.1

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, no run, short of a length, on off, Sammy walks across, defends to cover

123.2

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, no run, that's a sharp bouncer, 139.4ks, kicks off from a not-too-short length, and Sammy has to hurry into ducking

123.3

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, no run, short of a length, just outside off, shaping away, defended by Sammy

123.4

West Indies 359/6   DJG Sammy 35* (33b 4x4 2x6)
125.4

125.5

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, no run, short and wide, Sammy doesn't go after it

125.6

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, OUT, Hilfenahus strikes. He is good with those sharp short deliveries. This one is not too short, and hurries onto Sammy, at 141ks, between his rib and chest, and Sammy's limp pull is caught at deepish midwicket. An important, and entertaining, hand by Sammy comes to an end
