10.1

Tredwell to Smith, 1 leg bye, floated up outside leg stump, kicked away, well they're going to get a run behind leg slip

10.4

Tredwell to Smith, OUT, forward on middle and leg, it loops up to where short leg might have been, Buttler runs from behind the stumps and dives forward to take the catch. England are convinced but not out is given, Broad reviews and the replay shows a huge inside edge and the decision is changed. There was a hint of grip that forced the inside edge and Buttler was out smartly to complete the dismissal, big wicket

DR Smith c †Buttler b Tredwell 24 (40m 32b 3x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

West Indies 38/2   DR Smith 24 (32b 3x4 1x6)
