Mathews to Marshall, OUT, he can play on that's what! Marshall pushes forward tentatively and gets a bottom edge on to his leg stump, the ball dislodges just one bail, what a disappointment for Marshall

XM Marshall b Mathews 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 1/1   CH Gayle 1* (1b)   AD Mathews 0.2-0-1-1

Mathews to Simmons, OUT, bowled him! Round his legs that too! Mathews bowled a length ball angling towards leg stump, Simmons moved across his crease, trying to glance towards fine leg, he moved too far across and the ball clipped leg stump, that ball actually clipped the underneath of Simmons' thigh pad and deviated on to the stump

LMP Simmons b Mathews 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 1/2   CH Gayle 1* (1b)   AD Mathews 0.4-0-1-2

Mathews to Bravo, OUT, that's another one bowled! Mathews pitched the ball on a length outside off stump, Bravo was in two minds, undecided between playing or leaving it, he began to push at it before trying to pull his bat out of the way, the ball went off the inside edge to uproot middle stump

DJ Bravo b Mathews 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 1/3   CH Gayle 1* (1b)   AD Mathews 1-0-1-3

Mendis to Chanderpaul, OUT, that's plumb! Chanderpaul moved too far across his stumps and tried to sweep, he missed and Mendis hit him flush on the pad, that ball pitched in line and would have gone on to hit middle, it skidded on to Chanderpaul

S Chanderpaul lbw b Mendis 7 (33m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

West Indies 43/4   CH Gayle 34* (30b 5x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 1.2-0-5-1

Muralitharan to Sarwan, OUT, caught! Sarwan charges Murali and tries to hit the ball out of the ground, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball and is also cramped for room by Murali's line from round the wicket, he lofts straight to Mathews at long-on who takes an easy catch, he's having a terrific day

RR Sarwan c Mathews b Muralitharan 5 (10m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

West Indies 64/5   CH Gayle 45* (36b 7x4 1x6)   M Muralitharan 1.1-0-8-1

Muralitharan to Pollard, 1 wide, OUT, stumped down the leg side! Murali pitches on leg stump and draws Pollard forward, the ball spins past Pollard's pads, leaving him stranded, Sangakkara anticipates the opportunity and moves to his left and whips off the bails in a flash

KA Pollard st †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 3 (9m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

West Indies 75/6   CH Gayle 51* (40b 8x4 1x6)   M Muralitharan 2.3-0-18-2

Udana to Ramdin, OUT, another slower ball and Ramdin's holed out! He tried to loft it inside out over cover but only managed to give Jayawardene a catch, excellent change of pace

D Ramdin c Jayawardene b Udana 9 (6m 5b 2x4 0x6) SR: 180.00

West Indies 86/7   CH Gayle 53* (43b 8x4 1x6)   I Udana 2.5-0-18-1

Muralitharan to Taylor, OUT, caught! Taylor tries to clear the midwicket boundary but doesn't even clear the inner circle, Kulasekara takes the catch

JE Taylor c sub (KMDN Kulasekara) b Muralitharan 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 95/8   CH Gayle 60* (45b 8x4 2x6)   M Muralitharan 3.3-0-27-3

Mendis to Sammy, OUT, another one goes, feeble feeble batting, Sammy tries to clear the infield but slices the ball in the air towards point where Mubarak takes the catch, they simply need to give Gayle the strike

DJG Sammy c Mubarak b Mendis 1 (1m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

West Indies 97/9   CH Gayle 61* (46b 8x4 2x6)   BAW Mendis 3.2-0-7-2

Malinga to Benn, OUT, Malinga's sealed Sri Lanka's place in the final with a searing yorker that crashes into the stumps, that ball completes a fearsome defence

SJ Benn b Malinga 0 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 101/10   CH Gayle 63* (50b 8x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 2.4-0-24-1
