14 July 2012 (50-over match)

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

West Indies 7/0   CH Gayle 7* (7b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 1.5-1-6-0

Southee to Bravo, FOUR, nicely pulled away. Picks the short ball early, rocks back early, and pulls it over square leg. Takes from in front of his chest

West Indies 30/3   DJ Bravo 7* (14b 1x4)   TG Southee 2.3-1-5-2

Southee to Bravo, FOUR, Trademark Bravo. Southee goes wide of the crease, bowls too full, and too straight. Bravo flicks this over midwicket. A whip really

West Indies 34/3   DJ Bravo 11* (17b 2x4)   TG Southee 3-1-9-2

Bracewell to Samuels, FOUR, nicely played. Short, outside off, Samuels plays his percentages, and goes with the upper-cut in front of square. Even a mis-hit would have gone safe here. But he has middle this for four even as both his feet are in air as he plays the shot

West Indies 47/3   MN Samuels 11* (23b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 3.4-2-12-1

Bracewell to Samuels, FOUR, nicely played. This one gets big from just short of a length, but Samuels plays it late, Samuels place it with soft hands. Guides it wide of slip and wide of third man

West Indies 53/3   MN Samuels 15* (27b 2x4)   DAJ Bracewell 4.2-2-17-1

Bracewell to Samuels, FOUR, too short this time, and this time Samuels shows some power as he punches it in front of square, wide of short cover. Lovely one-two from Samuels

West Indies 57/3   MN Samuels 19* (28b 3x4)   DAJ Bracewell 4.3-2-21-1

NL McCullum to Samuels, FOUR, top shot. Length ball, flat, on off, he goes inside-out, and clears mid-off with a flat hit with ease

West Indies 81/4   MN Samuels 31* (51b 4x4)   NL McCullum 1.5-0-16-0

Oram to Samuels, FOUR, slashed away, but safe. Goes wide of the crease, but bowls short, and Samuels goes after it. Not entirely in control of it, but wide enough of gully. Calculate shot again

West Indies 86/4   MN Samuels 35* (54b 5x4)   JDP Oram 5.5-1-13-1

NL McCullum to Samuels, FOUR, uses his feet again. Down the wicket to turn this into a half-volley, and drills this back past him. There is a long-on in place, but he has no chance

West Indies 105/4   MN Samuels 46* (63b 6x4 1x6)   NL McCullum 3.5-0-34-0

Boult to Pollard, FOUR, Missile from Pollard. That looked like he was gone for all money as it left the bat. Flat hit, no height on it, and the long-on is back, but it is hit so fast that N McCullum doesn't have time to take the couple of steps to his right that would take him to the ball. Pollard's first boundary - would you believe it?

West Indies 122/5   KA Pollard 18* (42b 1x4)   TA Boult 8.1-2-28-0

Oram to Pollard, FOUR, short of a length, swipes at the first ball, and connects well to swat it past square leg for four

West Indies 133/5   KA Pollard 26* (48b 2x4)   JDP Oram 6.1-1-17-1

Oram to Pollard, FOUR, that doesn't matter to Pollard. He gets a length ball, stands tall, and swipes it between long-on and deep midwicket. Not a fielder moved

West Indies 139/5   KA Pollard 31* (51b 3x4)   JDP Oram 6.5-1-23-1

Southee to Thomas, FOUR, full, into the pads, and he has flicked it almost Dwayne Bravo-style to pick four runs wide of midwicket

West Indies 154/5   DC Thomas 14* (31b 1x4)   TG Southee 6.2-1-19-2

Bracewell to Thomas, FOUR, wide length ball, Thomas goes after it, gets a healthy edge through the vacant slip region for four

West Indies 167/5   DC Thomas 25* (38b 2x4)   DAJ Bracewell 6.5-2-35-1

Bracewell to Thomas, FOUR, fuller, half-volley eve, and Thomas has creamed this drive between cover and extra cover. Thomas is sure making up for that slow start

West Indies 171/5   DC Thomas 29* (39b 3x4)   DAJ Bracewell 7-2-39-1

Southee to Pollard, FOUR, goes for the wide yorker again, ends up bowling a full toss, which Pollard drags into the leg side for four, between square leg and midwicket

West Indies 178/5   KA Pollard 47* (62b 4x4 1x6)   TG Southee 7.4-1-29-2

Southee to Pollard, FOUR, wide yorker gone wrong again. It;s a now a full wide delivery,and he has driven it past extra cover. Brings up a mature fifty for Pollard. One of his best efforts

West Indies 182/5   KA Pollard 51* (63b 5x4 1x6)   TG Southee 7.5-1-33-2

Bracewell to Sammy, FOUR, nonchalantly pulled away. That's a long hop at 131ks, and he pulls this square from just outside off

West Indies 196/6   DJG Sammy 4* (4b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 7.3-2-44-1

Bracewell to Russell, FOUR, lovely hit. Short of being a yorker, and he goes on a knee, and drives this over extra cover. Holds the pose too

West Indies 218/7   AD Russell 9* (8b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 9.4-2-56-1

Oram to Russell, FOUR, length ball, drilled down the ground, and Guptill, eager to keep them down to one, lets it slip through for four

West Indies 258/8   AD Russell 29* (15b 2x4 2x6)   JDP Oram 9.3-1-40-2
