    2.5 big nick after a big heave! Length ball on fourth stump, King went for a massive swipe across the line. No real pressure to force that shot but he went hog wild, thin edge behind easily taken at waist height and is now on his way back as Williams breaks out a new celebration dance, seemingly having retired his notebook to write down his victims. 14/1
    3.5 the constant changes of pace lead to Hemraj's demise! Another slower ball lands full on fifth stump, Hemraj way out in front of this seemingly oblivious to the entire sequence bowled by Santokie since the first-ball six. The drive is skied over long-on where a simple catch is taken in stride jogging right 10 yards in from the rope. 25/2
    11.4 Hetmyer can't push on, he holes out to deep cover. Another change-up from McCoy, this is the back-of-the-hand variation, Hetmyer stays leg-side of the ball and frees his arms. But he's too early into the shot and miscues it to Barnwell in the outfield. Reward for some canny pace variations 73/3
    15.5 Another wrong'un, another wicket for Fawad. Malik dares to step out, Fawad gets this length ball to break in. It keeps a touch low as well. Malik swings and does not connect with the ball. The keeper does the rest. Fletcher's evening has gotten better 98/6
    11.5 What a double-strike from McCoy. He has Pooran dragging his first ball back onto his stumps. Back of a length and largely holds its line outside off, this pitch is quite slow, but still Pooran looks to force the ball through the covers. Instead, he bottom-edges it back onto the stumps 73/4
    13.1 big-turning googly from Fawad from around the stumps, rips past the outside edge. Fawad's variation leaves Rutherford overbalanced, Fletcher flips the bails off as Rutherford can't ground his back leg in time. Lazy from the batsman. The foot is in the air by the time the keeper dislodges the bails. Fletcher celebrates the wicket with some snazzy dance moves. Captain Sammy shows off his moves as well. This sure is the biggest party in sport, fellas 85/5
    19.2 very full and very wide outside off, back-of-the-hand variation, Paul reaches out for the ball and carves it in the air to short third man. Fawad nearly parries the ball over his head; he somehow hangs onto the ball after juggling it 146/7
    19.6 banged in short at the body, flapped away behind square. Green chances a second, but is caught short. He has done the damage, though 155/9
    19.3 Holes out to long-off. On a length and angling away outside off, Shadab clears his front leg and mis-hits it to Thisara. Shadab falls for a duck, but he might have a bigger role to play with the ball on this sluggish surface 146/8

    2.1 and the leggie strikes first ball! Fletcher chops on! Nothing special about this delivery. Good length ball on sixth stump, Fletcher steps well across his stumps to actually cramp himself for room going to cut. Had he stayed in his original position the shot was on but instead chops a bottom edge on. 18/1
    5.4 the biggest party in Providence is over! The big unit Cornwall couldn't keep out another full delivery from Green, who keeps on spearing the ball in very full. Cornwall plays across the line and is struck on the front toe. Even with Green bowling around the stumps, he's hit full enough and in line to convince umpire Nigel Duguid that it's hitting the stumps. 52/3
    3.5 miscued to mid-off! Another very full delivery on off stump, McCarthy was driving straight for mid-on but skews this uncontrolled in the air to the left of Paul at mid-off, who ranges 10 yards left on the ring while the ball flutters to him at chest height. Paul all over the action in this match. 29/2
    9.4 loose flick sees the downfall of Najibullah! Length ball on middle stump, the Afghan pocket rocket plays a short-arm jab flick high toward deep square leg. But the man is perfectly positioned, catch taken at chest height three yards in from the rope. Fireworks over for now. 82/4
    10.1 biting legbreak from Shadab. Looped up, the flight draws Barnwell out of the crease and encourages him to drive, but the ball dips, creating distance between the bat and pitch. The turn takes it past the outside edge. The keeper does the rest. The Zouks are falling away at the Providence 84/5
    15.1 length ball outside off, in the slot to be put away, but Thisara can't connect well enough. He slogs it off the higher part of the bat to Hetmyer at long-on 109/7
    14.2 Sammy picks out long-off. Shadab lobs it up outside off and gets it to turn away from a fullish length. Sammy swings for the hills but can only slice it straight into the lap of Hetmyer. Shadab with another vital strike from GAW 108/6
    17.6 full and wide outside off, thrashed through the extra-cover region. Santokie wants two but Williams is caught short at the non-striker's end. Top throw from Green 135/9
    16.4 banged in short, Laughlin nails this one into the middle of the pitch, cramps the batsman on the hook. Flapped right back to the bowler 119/8
