View dismissal CH Gayle b Oram 44 96 56 8 0 78.57
22.2 Gayle chops it on. Length-delivery, homing in on the off stump, Gayle backs away a touch and tries to cut but he is cramped for room. He gets a inside-edge and the ball crashes into the stumps. 81/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Styris b Bond 4 31 28 0 0 14.28
7.5 Bond swings out his first victim. It moves in the air, on the middle and off stump line, lands on the off peg line, shapes away, Chanderpaul is sucked into a forward prod, bat well in front of the body, gets a nick and it is snaffled up by Styris at second slip. 14/1
View dismissal RR Sarwan c †McCullum b Oram 19 35 27 2 0 70.37
16.2 Stunner from McCullum. Full in length, outside off stump and Sarwan drives but the bat comes outside the line as the ball moves in a touch, clips the inside-edge and it flies to the left of McCullum who dives full stretch to take a beauty. I would have said, another YouTube moment but ICC is watching. Shhhhh... 66/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c †McCullum b Oram 9 16 18 1 0 50.00
20.3 Another one goes down. New Zealand are on fire. Lands short of length, just outside off stump, kicks up, Samuels is surprised by the extra bounce, tries to withdraw his bat from the line but it must have brushed his gloves enroute to McCullum. 78/3
View dismissal BC Lara* c †McCullum b Styris 37 65 49 1 0 75.51
36.3 Lara walks. Fullish, a off cutter, outside off stump and Lara opts for a ugly slog across the line, and gets a inside-edge to McCullum who is standing up to the stumps. Lara goes, trying to up the ante and West Indies slip further. 150/6
View dismissal DJ Bravo c †McCullum b Bond 18 40 30 0 0 60.00
33.1 Takes out Bravo straightaway. Drifts in the air, around off stump line and straightens, Bravo pushes at it, playing for the one that comes in and edges it to McCullum. 128/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c Oram b Vettori 15 32 22 2 0 68.18
41.3 backs away, Vettori slows up the pace, tosses it up, it bounces up a touch and Ramdin goes for a cut, ends up tapping a dolly to point. To say that West Indies are in deep trouble would be a understatement 158/7
LMP Simmons not out 14 34 26 2 0 53.84
View dismissal DR Smith b Vettori 8 8 6 0 1 133.33
43.3 Smith is cleaned up. Vettori floated it in the air, slow through the air, on the middle stump line and Smith shaped to sweep it across the line. He was too early into his stroke as the ball never arrived and slowly went on to peg the middle stump back 176/8
View dismissal DBL Powell lbw b Vettori 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
43.4 Two in two. Drifts in from round the stumps, on the middle stump line, Powell has a lazy waft, outside the line, and he is struck in front of middle and leg. It would have taken out leg stump. He is on a hat-trick. 176/9
View dismissal CD Collymore b Bond 0 3 5 0 0 0.00
44.4 Screaming yorker, on the middle stump line, Collymore gets his bat down in a hurry, jabs at it but the ball rushes past the defensive blade and crashes into the middle stump. 177/10

View dismissal PG Fulton b Powell 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 What a start from Powell. A gem of a delivery to remove Fulton. Pitched on the good length, on the middle stump line, seamed away, evading the waft, and knocked out the middle stump. West Indies strike early. 0/1

20.6 Bravo to Styris, Lara takes out Fleming. Styris pushed to right of midwicket where Lara swooped on the ball and fired in a direct hit 77/3
