4.1

Mills to Gayle, no run, left with the angle across him outside off

4.4

Mills to Gayle, SIX, well, well, this has been the difference, they need to get this man early, second six for Gayle, Mills tries the slower one, pitched up again, outside off, and Gayle hammers it over wide long off, that just flew and was still travelling as it crashed into the upper tiers of the stand
