Lyon to KA Edwards, SIX, flat six, lovely shot. Edwards is hurting Lyon. Leaves the crease again, gets right to the pitch of the ball, which is on a length and just outside off, and he thumps it with the turn, over long-on

West Indies 112/1   KA Edwards 39* (80b 6x4 1x6)   NM Lyon 6.4-2-21-0

Warner to Bravo, SIX, a bit of a Warner treatment to Warner. Flamboyant little drive. Tossed up in the rough, just outside off, within his swinging arc, and he sends it sailing over long-on

West Indies 154/2   DM Bravo 10* (11b 1x6)   DA Warner 4.3-0-19-1

Lyon to Chanderpaul, SIX, Wade shouts "catch it", but he is addressing the crowd here. Length ball, on the pads, Shiv jumps out of the crease, right down to the pitch of it, and lofts it over mid-on

West Indies 285/4   S Chanderpaul 56* (110b 7x4 1x6)   NM Lyon 17-6-60-0

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

West Indies 348/6   DJG Sammy 24* (21b 3x4 1x6)   SR Watson 13.5-5-35-1

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

West Indies 358/6   DJG Sammy 34* (25b 4x4 2x6)   SR Watson 14.3-5-45-1

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, SIX, the first slog from Sammy but the result is similar. This is a length ball on the pads, Sammy clears the front leg, and mows it over cow corner to bring up the fifty of the partnership too

West Indies 369/6   DJG Sammy 41* (34b 4x4 3x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 27.4-11-52-0
