    15.2 tickle! Length ball, angling away from Dimuth, and he throws his hands at a square-cut. Ball jags away very late, takes the bat's toe-end and deposits itself in the keeper's gloves. A useful 32 comes to an end, and time for drinks as well 93/1
    18.1 a wicket thrown away! Back of a length on leg, and tapped to midwicket. Perera wants the double, but his partner hasn't responded, and the throw from deep midwicket is well aimed at the bowler's end. To be fair to Fernando, there was no two there 104/2
    47.2 slower ball, and that brings the innings to an end! Cottrell salutes him off, and for once, it looks like a compliment rather than a send-off. Struck way too low on the bat and ballooned to long-off instead of getting distance on it. 104 off 103. It's au revoir, Avishka, definitely not adieu 314/5
    31.5 nomination for catch of the tournament? Low full toss on leg stump, and Mendis looks to drive straight. Ball pops up while trying to play the shot, and Allen dives to his right to take a remarkable flying catch. Proper hangtime! 189/3

    39.1 Hashir, what have you done?! Yorker on middle, and Mathews is caught in no-mans-land since he's coming down the wicket. The ball beats him even before he can get his bat down. Another wicket for Holder 247/4

    48.6 holes to long-off! He needed to hit out or get out, but this has been a brilliant penultimate over. They crossed over, crucially, which means Thirimanne won't be on strike. 327/6

    15.2 and gone the very next ball! Oh Chris Gayle, what a moment this is! Sent this absolute kilometres into the air, and the fielder gets underneath it and adjusts wonderfully to take a sharp catch 71/3
    2.2 appeal for caught-behind and he raises his finger! Short, on off and getting big on Ambris. He shapes to pull, but takes a feathered top-edge that the keeper holds on to. Fistpump from Mali! 12/1
    4.6 the over's extra ball gets a wicket! That's rare. These balls usually get punished for four. But Hope is deceived by another slower ball, and the back-foot punch is inside-edged onto his stumps 22/2
    17.5 what on earth was that? Direct hit, gone! Hetmyer dismissed Tickled it to short third and set off on a run without ever lifting his head up to see if his partner was following through. When he did he was more than halfway down, and a direct hit meant he wasn't even in the frame. West Indies are rocking now 84/4
    47.1 Mathews strikes first ball! And what a fistpump to celebrate, very nearly knocked his team-mate out with that fist. Full ball outside off stump, angling away, and Pooran's attempted slog past cover takes a thin edge of his bat. Rousing applause for Pooran though 308/8
    28.2 holes out to mid on! Full, on middle, and Holder looks to clear the infield. Strikes it well too, but goes straight to Jeevan Mendis, who takes the catch head-high 145/5
    34.3 and that's out, I believe! What a way for Brathwaite to go! Pooran drove it down the ground, and Udana looks like he got a finger to it, before the ball hit the stumps. Brathwaite was well out of his ground. They have gone upstairs Brathwaite is gone, the ball kissed Udana's long middle finger before thudding into the stumps. Unfortunate for the Windies 199/6
    44.1 third run-out of the innings! Atleast it's not Pooran, who is currently on 99. This was flicked to short fine leg, and Pooran had ran across despite Allen not moving. Allen was ball-watching, and when he saw Pooran reach the other end, he scampered across to ensure that Pooran isn't run-out. Allen sacrifices his wicket, but did West Indies need to throw a wicket away at this stage? Probably not... 282/7

    48.3 appeal for lbw but not given. Full, on leg stump, and the ball did hit his pad. Malinga reviews. Was there inside edge? Or did it land outside leg stump. Only one of those two things can save Oshane. Replays show that it lands on leg stump, takes no edge of the bat, and hits him on leg stump. What does ball tracking say? Crashing into leg stump! Umpire Oxenford has to reverse his decision... 311/9
