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

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

West Indies 15/0   CH Gayle 13* (10b 1x4 1x6)   TA Boult 1.3-0-9-0

NL McCullum to Samuels, SIX, Lovely shot. Samuels just takes half a stride down the wicket to turn this into a half-volley, and lofts him over long-on. Samuels is looking really good here

West Indies 100/4   MN Samuels 42* (62b 5x4 1x6)   NL McCullum 3.4-0-29-0

Nicol to Pollard, SIX, slog-swept into the breeze for a six. These boundaries are not big enough if he connects. He has taken this from outside off, and has hit pretty flat and over deep midwicket

West Indies 148/5   KA Pollard 38* (55b 3x4 1x6)   RJ Nicol 4.5-1-15-0

Nicol to Thomas, SIX, Thomas has sent this out f the ground. Jumps out of the crease, makes a bit of room to swing his arms, and lofts this length ball over long-off

West Indies 188/5   DC Thomas 36* (41b 3x4 1x6)   RJ Nicol 5.1-1-22-0

Boult to Sammy, SIX, angling into the pads, short too, Sammy plays an effective little pick-up shot to help it over long leg

West Indies 226/7   DJG Sammy 18* (19b 1x4 1x6)   TA Boult 9.1-2-38-0

Boult to Sammy, SIX, dropped by Oram, back-to-back sixes for Sammy. It's a little harsh to call this a drop, but we have been ruined for the unspectacular by some extraordinary fielding nowadays. Full, hit flat and to the left of long-off, Oram makes ground, has both feet in the air when he makes contact with the ball, but the ball bursts through. Could never have been sure if he would have stayed inside

West Indies 232/7   DJG Sammy 24* (20b 1x4 2x6)   TA Boult 9.2-2-44-0

Southee to Russell, SIX, yorker gone wrong. A comfortable full toss on the pads, and he has heaved it over midwicket for an easy six

West Indies 244/8   AD Russell 17* (11b 1x4 1x6)   TG Southee 8.4-1-42-2

Southee to Russell, SIX, slower short ball, and he has picked it early, and clubbed it down the ground for a huge straight six. That seems like it has touched the sky before landing in the stands

West Indies 250/8   AD Russell 23* (12b 1x4 2x6)   TG Southee 8.5-1-48-2
