Jerome Taylor703014.28243020
18.3 to RT Ponting, some width right outside off and Ponting looks to slam it to the covers but instead drags a thick inside edge a long way and back onto the sticks. 96/2
Chris Gayle1005515.50293030
47.1 to MEK Hussey, outside off, Hussey comes down the track and drives out to long off where a waiting Pollard jumps, takes and again makes it look easy. 248/6
Fidel Edwards302207.3372000
Dwayne Bravo805426.75225120
12.5 to SR Watson, a huge shout as Watson walks right across his stumps - something he's been favouring this innings - and the ball comes in , pitching just outside off and rapping him in line with leg, Watson too late on the would-be flick off the legs. 75/1
49.4 to JR Hopes, outside off and this time he drags on a full one back into the sticks, he hears the clicks and has to walk on his way. 269/8
Sulieman Benn1003913.90353000
44.4 to BJ Haddin, comes out and drives straight and hard down the ground and he holes out at long off, Pollard took it well inside the rope - stretching up with two hands to pluck it safe. 231/5
Ramnaresh Sarwan503416.8091110
48.1 to CL White, a huge shout, Sarwan has struck! White tries to lift it from a line with off over midwicket, misses it and goes on to strike him in front of middle, fairly high but not questionably so and the batsman has to go. 251/7
Daren Sammy713124.42211110
24.3 to MJ Clarke, Clarke's gone! Stepped outside off, tried to run it down to third man and sends a thick outside edge through to Ramdin who takes it two-handed to spark celebrations from Sammy and his team. 117/3
30.4 to SE Marsh, and there's the breakthrough they wanted! A slightly slower ball in the slot and Marsh drives, can't keep it down and it goes straight to Gayle at cover. 140/4

Brett Lee913724.11333020
2.6 to XM Marshall, and Lee makes the breakthrough! He digs this one in a touch shorter, Marshall looks to drive off the back foot and the extra bounce does him, a thick edge goes through to Haddin. 11/1
8.1 to RR Sarwan, and that's three down! Lee was really troubling Sarwan, this one's quick and a bit of extra bounce does for Sarwan, who pushes and edges to slip where Hussey grabs the chance above his head. 29/3
Nathan Bracken5.503145.31223110
7.5 to CH Gayle, And there goes Gayle. Bracken angles it in, Gayle walks across and tries to work to leg, it strikes him in line, and after a Bucknor-like interminably long wait Asad Rauf raises the finger. 29/2
37.5 to JE Taylor, slower ball, and the batsman's all mixed up there, looking to play it out to the leg side but his leading edge pops up towards gully, Haddin calls it and carries on over to collect with two hands. 178/8
39.1 to DJG Sammy, bowled him - although he needed confirmation from the umpire as to whether it came off Haddin's pads or the stumps, both as it happened - Sammy swishing at the air. 186/9
39.5 to SJ Benn, and that's it! It's all over, Clarke runs round from long on to take the catch as the batsman attempted to drive right over for the six. 189/10
Mitchell Johnson704216.00214030
27.1 to KA Pollard, and he strikes! Johnson pushes it across him, Pollard edges off the back foot fending away from his body and Haddin snaps up the chance. 111/6
James Hopes501402.80201000
Michael Clarke411513.75161010
19.1 to DJ Bravo, and he strikes immediately! Bravo takes a long stride forward, misses the ball, and he's caught in front. West Indies are four down now, Bravo could be in some trouble as he stood there for a while shaking his head but there was no problem with the ball itself which would have gone on to hit middle and leg. 80/4
Cameron White603205.33191100
Shane Watson301816.0081010
35.4 to D Ramdin, cleans him up now, comprehensively. The ball's a peach, nipping right back in from outside off and the batsman drove right at it, going through the gate. 163/7
