4.1 length ball at the stumps, Stirling pulls it away, hitting with the wind but cannot get enough to carry it all the way. Hetmyer does well at deep square leg as the ball suddenly dips at him. Dives forward and takes it comfortably 23/2
    1.4 a full toss this time, O'Brien looks to work it on the leg side but closes the bat face early. Gets a leading edge towards mid-off where Hetmyer takes a simple catch. Romario has his first wicket in T20I cricket 6/1
    13.2 a brilliant running catch by Shepherd! Makes amends this time. Was fuller around off, Delany goes inside out towards deep extra cover but Shepherd runs to his right, and takes it just above the ground while tumbling 111/4
    11.2 fuller and angling in towards the batsman, Delany looks to clear long-on once again but fails to middle. Pierre takes a superb catch, running parallel to the boundary line to his leg. He's pumped and so is Pollard 95/3
    18.5 fuller and wider, McCarthy misses but they are going for a bye to have Tector on strike. But this time Pooran nails the direct hit. Tector was way, way short 147/8
    15.6 castles him with a slower one. A length ball on middle and leg, looks to work it on the leg side but misses it completely, the ball clatters into the leg stump 125/5
    17.2 bamboozles the batsman with a slower one, was a length ball from wide of the crease. Dockrell fails to pick it up and ends up lobbing it into the air. Pollard takes a couple of steps back and takes an easy catch 133/6
    18.4 fuller outside off, looks to chase it but can only feather it to the keeper. The umpire takes a while to give the decision and they are looking to sneak in a single. Pooran misses the direct hit but Cottrell collects and whips off the bails to find Simi short. But the umpire raises his finger but Cottrell wants to review it. He doesn't want to miss out on a wicket. And yes, there is a sound and a spike as well. So caught-behind and wicket for Cottrell 147/7
    18.6 fuller outside off, Little surprisingly shoulders arms and just stays in his crease. Think either he was expecting a wide or he wasn't aware the game had been reduced to 19 overs a side. McCarthy was charging down the other end, Pooran throws it towards Cottrell who whips off the bails 147/9
