Jerome Taylor403328.25113140
0.3 to SR Watson, Taylor and Sars remove Watto. It was full and just outside off and Watson went for his drive. He couldn't clear Sarwan at mid-off, though.. 1/1
0.4 to RT Ponting, Ponting is gone! Would you believe it? Two wickets in the over. What drama at The Oval. After couple of wides, Taylor got this one straight on the stumps. Ponting was on his typical forward lunge and couldn't get his bat around the front pad. Gone! Plumb in front. Dead duck.. 3/2
Fidel Edwards403428.50122202
3.3 to MJ Clarke, Oh boy! the third wicket is down. What a start by the Windies. They might be fielding poorly but the bowling has been good. Clarke moved outside leg stump to go for the high-risk option of going over the off-side field. Fidel kicked it up from short of length and kept it just outside off, Clarke lunged out as he went for his cut. The edge flew straight to third man.. 15/3
19.1 to MG Johnson, Mitch holes out at long-on. He went for the big six over long-on but couldn't clear Bravo.. 153/7
Dwayne Bravo403127.7594020
15.3 to DA Warner, another low dipping full toss outside off, Warner, again, lunged forward to drive but ended up slicing it to covers. A fine hand from him, though.. 113/5
17.5 to DJ Hussey, Low full toss and David swings it high over midwicket. Fletcher is some where there. But the ball seems to be landing safely but Fletcher charged ahead, lunged forward to take a diving catch.. 143/6
Sulieman Benn403508.7581210
Chris Gayle201306.5041000
Kieron Pollard201718.5041100
11.3 to BJ Haddin, Full and on the stumps, Haddin goes for the big swing but ends up hitting it straight up and Benn gets under it at midwicket. Haddin falls after a little cameo.. 81/4

Brett Lee4056114.0096302
14.3 to CH Gayle, And Gayle's fabuliciously violent innings comes to an end. He has a laugh with Lee as he walks back. The crowd are up on their feet. Respect. He went for another big six but hit it skywards ... high .. very high ... but Watson ran in from long-on to steady himself under the ball .... 157/2
Mitchell Johnson3.503629.39115130
11.3 to ADS Fletcher, But he is gone now. He went for the pull from outside off but the ball bounced more and ballooned up close on the off side for a simple catch. What a fine innings from Fletcher. He started the assault before Gayle took over. 133/1
15.3 to XM Marshall, Xavier chips to mid-off and takes the long walk back to the hutch. Hopes back pedaled before leaping behind to hold on to a sharp catch.. 162/3
