West Indies won by 24 runs
14 July 2012 (50-over match)

Boult to Gayle, no run, starts with an awayswinger first up, begins just outside off, and left alone


Boult to Gayle, 1 run, a really good delivery, pitched on a length, on middle and leg, then swinging against the angle. He has to play at it, and is squared up. However, the the pace and bounce is not stingy enough, and the edge dies soon, and travels wide of second slip

West Indies 1/0   CH Gayle 1* (2b)

Bracewell to Gayle, no run, short of a length, on off, defended off the back foot


Bracewell to Gayle, 2 runs, short of a length, gives him the width, Gayle leans back to cut it hard into the ground, and between point and cover-point. Despite a heavy outfield and the McCullums chasing behind this ball, they have got four. Brendon's right arm is in contact with the ball and the rope at the same time as he puts in a desperate dive. Oh hang on. They haven't called it four. I don't think this is the right call


Bracewell to Gayle, no run, no room now, and Gayle defends off the back foot


Bracewell to Gayle, no run, fuller, no off, pushed to mid-off


Bracewell to Gayle, FOUR, Bludgeoned away. Bracewell digs this in for a gentle bouncer, and Gayle opens up the front leg to smash it to midwicket. "Neither he nor the pitch has the pace to bowl this short," says Jeff Dujon


Bracewell to Gayle, no run, full, swinging in, half a shout for lbw, but this is headed down leg

West Indies 7/0   CH Gayle 7* (8b 1x4)

Boult to Gayle, no run, yorker, swinging in to the left-hand batsman this time


Boult to Gayle, 1 wide, a wide down the leg side now


Boult to Gayle, SIX, Boom. Length ball, into the pads, no swing, and effortlessly lofted down the ground over long-on. Six No. 1 today


Boult to Gayle, 2 runs, full, into the pads, dragged square onto the leg side, gets a couple square of long leg


Boult to Gayle, no run, Gayle is looking to come down the wicket, and yorks himself up with this full delivery on the pads


Boult to Gayle, no run, finally one that swings away, and Gayle doesn't go after it outside off

West Indies 17/0   CH Gayle 15* (13b 1x4 1x6)

Boult to Gayle, no run, full and straight, defended back to him


Boult to Gayle, no run, this one swings away, starts just outside off, and is left alone. Good carry even though this is bowled at 131ks. Collected in front of the face by Latham


Boult to Gayle, 1 wide, that starts a touch too wide, and swings away for Richard Illingworth to call it a wide


Boult to Gayle, 1 run, full, on off, angling in, bunted wide of mid-on for an easy single

West Indies 19/1   CH Gayle 16* (16b 1x4 1x6)

Southee to Gayle, OUT, And immediately he has got an lbw decision. After long deliberation, Gayle reviews it. Lovely first delivery from Southee. What a bowling change too. This is a length ball that swings in a little to hit him in front of leg. Umpire Nero has no doubt this is out. Gayle knows he hasn't hit it, he is banking on the ball pitching outside leg when he challenges this call. Replays show it pitched just in. On your bike, Chris

CH Gayle lbw b Southee 16 (28m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 94.11

West Indies 19/2   CH Gayle 16 (17b 1x4 1x6)
