6.3

Beer to Barath, no run, nicely tossed up, on a length, on off, turning away, defended off the back foot

6.4

Beer to Barath, no run, Barath continues to remain on no score. Anxious little drive in front of the body, the ball turns, takes the outside half of the bat, and Lyon dives at cover-point to keep him there

8.5

Beer to Barath, no run, flat, shortish, wide, left alone

8.6

Beer to Barath, 2 runs, Australia getting taste of their own medicine. Edges flying all sorts of places but to hand. This time Barath is drawn into pushing outside off, and the outside edge goes past slip

12.1

Beer to Barath, no run, length ball, middle and leg, straightening, defended off the back foot

12.2

Beer to Barath, FOUR, driven in the air, but through the gap at cover. Barath pushes forward to this length ball, and drives with an open face. "Catch" is the shout, but he has gone right through the vacant extra cover region

12.3

Beer to Barath, no run, good response. Slows this down, lets it dip, and then turns away after pitching middle and off. Beats the edge

12.4

Beer to Barath, OUT, lovely spin bowling. Barath is dead plumb. He has followed that slow teasing spinning delivery up with an arm ball. Barath is caught back. The ball pitches on a length, just outside off, turns in with the arm, and hits him deep inside the crease, in front of off. What was that line? Couldn't get plumber if he was working with pipes

AB Barath lbw b Beer 7 (47m 41b 1x4 0x6) SR: 17.07

Beer to Bravo, no run, flighted outside off, Bravo covers the turn, pushes to cover

West Indies 28/2   MA Beer 7-4-10-1
14.1

Beer to Bravo, FOUR, disdainfully smashed away. Overpitched outside off, and Bravo lofts this through mid-off. The man there is wide, and he knows he can play this shot

14.2

104.4

Beer to Baugh, OUT, Review already. Baugh is sweeping, which has often led to his demise. This is on a length, pitched in front of leg, straightens, beats the shot, and hits him in front of leg. The projection shows this would have hit the leg stump, and Baugh has to go after having been given not-out originally
