0.1

Harris to Barath, no run, lovely outswinger first up, angles in, pitches around off, short of a length, then moves away. If anything, it moves away too much, and Barath has no trouble pushing inside the line of it

7.1

Hilfenhaus to Barath, 1 run, short of a length, too straight, tucked away off the hip, gets a single to long leg

Siddle to Barath, no run, this is short of a length, moves in towards the pads, turns the bat early, and misses

West Indies 26/0   AB Barath 15* (42b 1x4)

14.1

Siddle to Barath, no run, bouncer, 139ks, over the stumps, AB ducks under it with time to spare

14.2

Siddle to Barath, 1 wide, this bouncer is much too short, and is called a wide

14.2

Siddle to Barath, FOUR, loose stroke, wide length ball, AB drives at it merrily. He has to reach for it because he is not close to the line, and hits it in the air, but wide of gully, to the right of Hussey

17.2

Harris to Barath, no run, short of a length, outside off, 135ks, extra bounce involved, but left alone

17.3

Harris to Barath, OUT, and it works immediately. Barath should have known better. This was a plan posted on Twitter. Harris goes round the stumps, has a man on on the hook and at short leg. The bouncer was expected. Barath should have known that. He hooks this from well outside off, gets the top edge, and is caught simply and gleefully at deep backward square. All the hard work of 75 minutes wasted. Full points to Harris, though, for trying to change things up a bit

AB Barath c Siddle b Harris 22 (76m 54b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.74

West Indies 38/1   AB Barath 22 (54b 2x4)
