    0.1 ball 1 strike 1! Right on target is Doug Bollinger, gets some late movement inwards and the ball straightens, lands on a good length and thuds his pads in line with the off stump, Gayle was too lazy in getting his bat down on time and he played down the wrong line 0/1
    4.3 tumbling like pins here, excellent delivery there, lands on a good length on middle and straightens a bit, Morton gets a touch forward but he's beaten for pace and gets hit on the pads in line with off and middle 11/3
    3.6 error in judgement outside the off stump, McKay lands it just a touch wide outside the off stump and he gets forward and shapes to let it go to the keeper, but the ball brushes the face of the bat and Haddin and the rest know it 11/2
    6.2 Doug's on fire! He bowls it on a fullish length and angles it just across the right-hander, Simmons is forced to play at it and he shapes to drive straight, the late movement catches the outside edge and another easy take for Haddin 16/4
    16.5 on the middle stump and hitting the leg stump or is it? Bowden certainly thinks so as Deonarine who was looking good has to go. There is an air of doubt around the dismissal as Bowden took his own sweet time in giving the decision and then walked over to the square leg umpire to discuss about it 62/5
    20.1 the bowling change works! Watson bowls it dead straight on the channel outside off, the ball holds its line and Ramdin fishes outside the off stump with a half stride forward, thin edge and Haddin's good outing continues 77/6
    28.6 caught!! Bollinger's done it in his comeback over! The ball was on a good length and pretty straight, Pollard tried to hit across the line towards mid-on but the angle of the ball - across him - forced it to hit the leading edge, Johnson settled under the catch at mid-off 114/7
    39.4 terrific terrific catch! Hussey's pulled off the spectacular! Smith heaves the ball towards cow corner, Hussey sprints from long-on, he covers about 40 meters to his right at top speed before diving full length and taking the catch inches from the ground 170/10
    31.3 caught! Miller tries to drive, he's beaten by flight and dip and spoons a catch to White at cover point, West indies are in danger of leaving a serious number of overs unused 125/8
    39.3 direct hit! And it's Ponting! Rampaul jumps back to play a short ball and it goes towards point, Rampaul's deep in his crease when he starts running so Ponting has plenty of time to line up the stumps at the bowler's end and throw, he hits the top of middle 170/9
