Fidel Edwards301926.3392010
0.3 to T Bavuma, edged and Gayle takes a dolly at slip! Edwards squares him up beautifully with the length. This one hits the deck, straightens and has Temba pushing uncertainly at it. Flew low to Gayle's left but he was swift to react.. 0/1
14.1 to Q de Kock, and strikes first ball to break this 128-run stand. Scrambled seam ball on a fullish length outside off, and de Kock tries to slog across the line but gets it off the bottom of the bat down to long-on, where Russell goes low to snaffle a good take in the end. An excellent partnership is broken. 128/2
Chris Gayle201507.5040110
Dwayne Bravo402817.0031030
17.2 to HE van der Dussen, chipped to Bravo, and it could rarely have been easier! Change of pace and a full delivery on off, VDD doesn't get any timing there as his push lands safe in the hands of the bowler, who takes it to his left. Soft dismissal in the end. 149/4
Obed McCoy403117.7551120
16.3 to AK Markram, beaten by the lack of pace and chipped all the way to fine leg. Back-of-the-hand ball from McCoy on a good length on middle and leg, as Markram doesn't pick up the change in pace and lofts to fine leg without any timing and placement by playing very early. But that was an excellent innings from the No. 3. 144/3

Kagiso Rabada402426.00113001
18.2 to DJ Bravo, sliced high and Bavuma runs back toward deep point to complete an excellent catch. Scrambled seam ball on a good length on off, and Bravo goes full throttle only to get an outside edge as the South Africa captain continues his great day on the field. 140/7
18.3 to N Pooran, and that's probably the match! Another scrambled seam ball dug into the pitch on a good length outside off, as Pooran pulls but gets a top edge to de Kock, who goes to his left to nab a simple catch. Rabada on a hat-trick here. 140/8
George Linde3033111.0050400
2.1 to LMP Simmons, Linde now into the attack with his left-arm spin and he strikes immediately with an arm-ball. Given out on the field but Simmons reviews. Simmons looks to muscle this indrifter but is beaten and is struck on the pad. Ball tracking comes back to confirm this would've hit the stumps. So since it was given out on the field, the percentage of the ball hitting the stumps wouldn't have mattered. West Indies not just lose a wicket but lose a review too. That looked plumb at the point of contact. The only question was if Simmons got some bat. If he did, he may have reviewed immediately instead of asking his partner.. 20/1
Lungi Ngidi403238.00121310
9.3 to E Lewis, picks out long-off! Lewis looks to clear that fielder but doesn't get the timing right. Ngidi has delivered a crucial breakthrough. 75/3
17.2 to SO Hetmyer, taken at long-on! Ngidi goes for the yorker on middle and off, and Hetmyer tries to slam that over the rope by clearing his front leg. But that was too full a ball to try and slog, as it ended up in Miller's hands to leave West Indies in further trouble. 125/6
19.2 to OC McCoy, taken at deep midwicket. Another change-of-pace delivery but this was shorter and wide of off, as McCoy's pull finds Mulder on the fence to give Ngidi his third wicket. 142/9
Tabraiz Shamsi401112.75161000
7.1 to CH Gayle, Gayle walks, Shamsi strikes gold! Beats him in flight, Gayle looks to muscle him across the line and can only get a thin edge as he swings hard, simple catch for QDK. Wasn't given, but he chose to walk.. 65/2
Wiaan Mulder403127.7551140
14.3 to KA Pollard, but Mulder has now got Pollard. The batter reaches out for the full-toss outside off perhaps not able to entirely stretch forward due to the niggle, and mistimes it to long-off as the eventful over continues. 110/4
14.4 to AD Russell, nabbed low at point! Mulder has two in two, and both of them big ones. Russell too reaches out for this full-toss wide of off without any foot movement, and doesn't get the timing and placement. Ngidi, at point, goes low to grab this and leave Mulder on a hat-trick. 110/5
