West Indies won by 15 runs
9.1

11.4

Bresnan to Edwards, OUT, full and straight and bowled him! Off stump knocked back and Edwards goes cheaply. Seemed to just play all around that really, the delivery didn't do much, shaped in a touch but Edwards aiming to leg missed and the ball came off his pad onto the off stump

19.1

Bresnan to Simmons, 1 run, goes onto the back foot, works a straight delivery behind square on the leg side...Jordan does the fielding; he hasn't bowled yet

19.2

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, 1 run, just a fraction too straight again and this time it's sent to deep square

19.3

Bresnan to Simmons, no run, nips back into him from back of a length, gripping a bit on the surface, takes him high on the back leg

21.3

Bresnan to Simmons, no run, no width on offer, prodded with caution into the covers

21.4

West Indies 62/4   TT Bresnan 5-1-14-1

33.2

33.5

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, 2 runs, gets across his stumps and works with the angle into him from Bresnan, flicked wide of midwicket

33.6

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, 1 wide, a rare bouncer, over middle and off, and it's ruled to be too short...yeah, he needed a ladder to reach that (or to be Joel Garner)

39.5

Bresnan to Simmons, OUT, a step to leg and Simmons tries to clear the off side, gets a length ball, a slower ball, high off the bat and it loops to cover and Bresnan takes a big wicket. Simmons was going along nicely and probably didn't need to play that stroke, he's rather handed it away when well set, trying to force the pace, getting into a poor position to have a big swing and being done by a ball Bresnan dragged his fingers across

LMP Simmons c Ali b Bresnan 65 (116m 94b 6x4 0x6) SR: 69.14

39.6

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, FOUR, wanders across to the off side again, Bresnan goes short and gets slapped over square leg, top shot, good cricket

45.5

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, 1 wide, wide outside off again with Bravo taking another step across his stumps, looked harsh that one, the ball went over the bottom third of the bat

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, 1 run, another step to the off side, clips a fuller ball down to long-on
