West Indies 86/1   SR Watson 2-0-11-0

45.1

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, on cue he produces the edge but dropped. Will be a little harsh to call it a drop. Short of a length, outside off, holds its line. KB pushes hard at it, and away from the body. The edge goes wide of second slip and is dying. Ponting dives full length. Gets the right to it, but the ball hits the wrist area and pops out. Dived a little too far perhaps

45.3

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, pushes this length ball to mid-off

45.4

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, wide length ball outside off, shapes away nicely, but not close enough to make him play

45.5

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, slower ball, a 116ks, a legcutter, Brathwaite watches it well, drops the wrists, defending this shortish ball to cover

45.6

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, another false stroke, short of a length again, but regulation pace, hits the seam and moves away, and bounces a little extra, beating the cut

West Indies 104/1   SR Watson 3-1-11-0

47.1

Watson to KA Edwards, no run, Watson keeps producing loose shots. These guys are batting so well against everybody else. This is a wide delivery, moves away too, but Edwards feels he has to play at it, and is lucky not to edge it

47.2

Watson to KA Edwards, no run, similar delivery again, and Edwards almost plays at it again, withdrawing late from the shot

47.3

Watson to KA Edwards, no run, length ball, closer to off, defended back to him

47.4

West Indies 113/1   SR Watson 4-2-11-0

49.3

Watson to KA Edwards, no run, short of a length, on off, pushed to midwicket

49.5

Watson to KA Edwards, no run, length ball, around a set of stumps wide, left alone now

49.6

Watson to KA Edwards, FOUR, Watson produces another edge, drawing him into a push at a length ball well outside off, but to his credit Edwards plays with soft hands and takes the bottom hand off, and the edge scoots along between the second slip and gully, all along the ground

West Indies 121/1   SR Watson 5-2-17-0

51.1

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, short of a length, outside off, moves across to push this to cover

51.2

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, length ball outside off, swinging away a touch, pushed to mid-off

51.3

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, this one jags back in, from slightly wider, and hits him on the thigh pad. He beat the edge there, just got it too high for an lbw. Easily the best bowler on show today

51.4

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, yorker outside off, dug out

51.5

Watson to Brathwaite, no run, short of a length, outside off, dabbed away to point

51.6

Watson to Brathwaite, 1 run, nice little inswinger, Brathwaite is up for it, and and gets the bat down in time despite having moved across. Takes a single too, placing this wide of square leg

West Indies 240/3   SR Watson 8-3-19-0

94.1

Watson to Bravo, OUT, Watto finally gets one. Length ball, pitched on off, shapes away a bit, Bravo is committed to the shot, and manages only an outside edge. This one goes neither short, nor over. Neither right not left. Straight to gully

DM Bravo c Hussey b Watson 51 (170m 123b 7x4 1x6) SR: 41.46

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

94.5

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

West Indies 240/4   SR Watson 9-4-19-1

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

96.4

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, bouncer, angling wide of off, Chanders doesn't play at it. Called one for the over

98.2

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball just outside off, but Chanders leaves it alone as nonchalantly as one would leave Harmison's first delivery of a new Ashes

98.4

104.3

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball well outside off, Shiv doesn't play at it

104.4

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, this is a brute. Short of a length, hits the seam, in front of off, and takes off. Goes a long way away too, Shiv drops his hands out of the way expertly, and Wade has to take it with an acrobatic dive to his left

104.5

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, this one doesn't misbehave much, left alone outside off

104.6

Watson to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, and then he makes a slight error, straying onto the leg-stump line, and Shiv moves inside the line to deflect it to the left of fine leg for a couple

West Indies 291/5   SR Watson 12-5-28-1

120.2

Watson to Sammy, no run, short of a length, just outside off, Sammy pushes this to cover

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   SR Watson 14-5-35-1

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

122.6

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, bouncer to Shiv, who gets under it without fuss
