View dismissal KOA Powell c Maxwell b Johnson 9 33 29 0 0 31.03
7.3 90.2 mph, caught at point! Oh no, Powell went for a flick as this was heading down the leg side and it was full too. But it moves a touch away and takes the leading edge. Maxwell at point as to just run a few steps to his left to take a dolly 17/2
View dismissal J Charles b Johnson 0 15 3 0 0 0.00
3.5 89.6 mph, he makes up for Starc's absence by bowling it full on the off stump. Johnson gets a taste of what's it like to face the inswinger's at that pace. he is too late, the ball sneaks in and takes the offstump out of the ground, sends it few meters behind ... Lovely delivery 5/1
View dismissal DM Bravo c Finch b Johnson 4 18 16 1 0 25.00
7.6 75.4 mph, caught at second slip! Is anyone missing Starc now? not me. It was quick short ball on the body, wobbles a bit too and that is enough to induce a faulty defence from the batsman. He tries to fend it to the leg side but gets a leading edge which balloons in front of the second slip, the fielder dives forward and completed a good catch.. But what serious pace here..Three down.. 17/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo lbw b Maxwell 3 16 8 0 0 37.50
10.4 55.0 mph, hits him on the pad as Bravo comes forward in his defence.. They are going for a review. It just spun in a bit and hit the batsman on the knee-roll. He was way forward. It has turned back from outside off to hit the top of off. Successful review this one.. The fall continues.. 22/4
KA Pollard not out 109 183 136 11 2 80.14
View dismissal N Deonarine c Finch b Cutting 10 27 16 1 0 62.50
17.3 86.4 mph, caught at second slip! Deonarine has been pushing at all deliveries since he arrived and this time, he tries to play a forceful shot at an angled delivery, gets a nice thick healthy edge that flies to the second slip at a good height. What a disaster. I just noticed they are not even fifty at the moment 45/5
View dismissal DC Thomas c Finch b Cutting 7 8 6 1 0 116.66
19.2 84.2 mph, oh that doesn't carry to the second slip! Or has it, they are asking the umpires. It was short of length outside off, the batsman pushes it off the back foot and gets a healthy edge to second slip, where Finch scoops it up. No one is really excited about it and the umpires are having a long debate..Hang on! this looks like it has gone straight in. Why didn't he show any more excitement I wonder. It looks pretty good in the replays.. That's it, the batsman has to go, it was a good call in the end. 55/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Clarke b Cutting 25 46 42 3 0 59.52
31.6 86.6 mph, caught at first slip! Another shot in the arm for the Aussies. It was length delivery outside off stump and bounced more than what Sammy anticipated, it takes a good thick edge and flies to Clarke at first slip. 98/7
View dismissal AD Russell c Maxwell b Faulkner 18 28 17 1 1 105.88
38.3 79.8 mph, caught at long off! Russell does what he knows best, he gives this one a good thwack, but doesn't get the ball of the middle at all, it hangs in the air for a while and comes down at long-off where Maxwell gobbles it up easily. 133/8
View dismissal SP Narine c †Wade b McKay 23 35 22 3 0 104.54
46.1 80.2 mph, he comes forward to defend, but the length ball takes the outside edge and goes to the keeper. A good hand played by Narine in a very very useful partnership for West Indies. 197/9
View dismissal TL Best run out (Finch/Faulkner) 1 15 3 0 0 33.33
49.4 Faulkner to Pollard, another short ball, it's pulled hard down to deep backward square leg, they think about a couple, and are late into it. In the end, the fielder fires a throw to the non-striker's end where Tino is well short. 220/10

View dismissal SR Watson c †Thomas b Best 76 130 84 9 0 90.47
28.4 92.3 mph, that is all over! El Tinoooooooooooo strikes..Late in the day. That was a quick short delivery on the body, gets only chest high and follows Watson, who is unable to get his bat out of the way and it goes straight to the keeper, who doesn't make any mistake this time. Tino passes a sermon to Watson as they cross. 145/3
View dismissal AJ Finch lbw b Narine 25 46 30 5 0 83.33
9.5 56.6 mph, quicker delivery, that goes on with just enough spin to beat the bat. Finch was playing across the line and was not really forward. The umpire gives him out but Finch asks for a review (Why?). There is not inside edge, and the ball goes on to hit the top of leg, so the umpire's decision stays.. First strike 53/1
View dismissal PJ Hughes c DJ Bravo b Narine 23 58 44 2 0 52.27
23.2 57.7 mph, caught at slip! very strange way to get out. It was flighted wide outside off stump, and of all the shots, Hughes chooses a sweep. But that was too far outside off, and the batsman was beaten for flight as he is through with his shot when the ball arrives, it kisses the gloves and goes straight to Bravo at first slip 115/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c †Thomas b Best 37 92 65 1 0 56.92
44.3 88.8 mph, caught behind!! El Tino strikes again.. Too late though. It was a quick short one again, around the leg stump area, Clarke stays in the crease and goes for the pull, but gets a feather down the leg side. Tino is ecstatic.. 220/5
View dismissal AC Voges c Sammy b Russell 28 50 39 2 0 71.79
41.3 82.4 mph, caught at midwicket! It was a nothing delivery. Short of length around the body, not much pace and the batsman goes for a pull. He gets a top-edge that lobs to midwicket, who has to run a few paces backward to take that. A wicket falls against the run of play.. 198/4
