    3.4 but that's all we have from him, attempts a similar shot to a ball bowled short outside off, gets the top edge this time and Steve Smith, at third man, runs in a few yards to complete a well-judged catch 26/1
    10.5 Steve Smith is outstanding in the outfield, he took two beauties in the last game but he's bettered them here, bowled on a length outside off and he swung it hard in the direction of deep square leg, Smith was a few yards inside the boundary and it forever seemed it would elude him but he timed his jump to perfection, held on, it popped out for a moment but he somehow juggled and clasped it while diving backwards, brilliant effort 63/5
    3.6 gone! Bowls it on a length outside off, tries to drive it through the line, gets a thick outside edge and Cameron White at second slip makes no mistake, a first-ball duck for Morton 27/2
    7.6 Pollard's gone, a wild swing to a ball bowled on a good length on the off, misses and the off stump is pegged back, a big blow for West Indies 50/3
    8.3 another wicket falls, dropped into the off side and Hinds calls for a single, he's struggling to make it to the other end as the throw from point is collected by Steve Smith at the non-striker's end. the stumps are broken and Hinds is just short, the replays confirm he's out 51/4
    12.1 West Indies lose another one, bowled it full outside off, lofted it inside out towards deep cover and Warner did well, taking a few steps forward, getting underneath the ball and pouching it inches from the ground 77/6
    not out
    16.3 short and wide, makes room to cut that over third man but can't find enough to beat him, got plenty of elevation and Warner ran forward to complete a sharp catch 98/7
