View dismissal CH Gayle* run out (Johnson) 53 85 54 5 3 98.14
17.4 Johnson to Marshall, Gayle is run out. Oh what a way to go.Marshall had driven a fullish delivery back down the track and the lunging Johnson had got a hand on it and it went on to break the stumps and Gayle couldn't get back into the crease in time. He was in murderous mood but has to go back to the hutch. 86/1
View dismissal XM Marshall c †Ronchi b Watson 35 101 65 4 0 53.84
20.2 Super catch from Ronchi, diving to his right. He had gone down the track and tried to blast a wide delivery over the off-side field on a bent knee but got a thick edge. And Ronchi went flying to his right to pluck it. Viv Richards, on the wireless, says, "Marshall cannot be criticized for that shot. You can't be hars on him. The shot was on." He was trying to be aggressive. Great catch by Ronchi, though. 99/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Symonds b Johnson 31 73 43 2 0 72.09
35.5 full and well outside off stump, Sarwan tried to blast it over extra cover but couldn't clear Symonds. Out for 31. Viv Richards says, "The intentions were pretty good but he just didn't get the height." 168/4

View dismissal DBL Powell run out (Lee) 2 11 4 0 0 50.00
46.4 from Lee, Lee the footballer does the trick. Powell had dabbed a short of length delivery close on the off side, set off for the run, was sent back and he slipped. Meanwhile, Lee had rushed along and kicked it on to the stumps. A neat little left footer. 220/9
