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

88.1

Harris to Chanderpaul, no run, half-volley, angling in, driven to mid-off

88.2

Harris to Chanderpaul, FOUR, silent little cover-drive. A mere push to a length delivery outside off. But the angle of the face of the bat places it between cover-point and cover perfectly. He has taken four, and not many would have realised in the ground

West Indies 255/4   RJ Harris 21-7-48-1

101.1

Harris to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball outside off, angling away, he will leave them all day

101.2

Harris to Chanderpaul, FOUR, full toss, just outside off, walking into the drive, again a mere push, right under his eye, and placed nicely between mid-off and cover, all along the ground

101.3

Harris to Chanderpaul, 3 runs, another drive, not as sweet as the previous one, this time to the right of cover, and Siddle gives chase and keeps it in with a slide

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

West Indies 273/4   RJ Harris 22-7-59-1

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

103.4

Harris to Baugh, no run, short of a length, middle and off, angling in, defended back to him

103.5

Harris to Baugh, FOUR, another short ball on target, and Baugh is not comfortable with it. Looks to sway out of line, but fends at it too, and the edge flies between slips and gully

103.6

Harris to Baugh, no run, another drop? No feet from Baugh as he pushes at this lenght ball away from the body. The edge goes between first and second slip, dying to the left of Ponting, who does well to dive and get a hand to it, but it doesn't stick. Technically a drop, yes
