53.5FOURRoach to Ross Taylor, FOUR, edged and through the tiny gap between Gayle at first slip and Ramdin. Neither men moved. It was Ramdin's catch. Roach though did well to induce the outside edge from a loose drive. This was a teasing full ball outside off159/3

129.2FOURJerome Taylor to Craig, FOUR, dropped by Benn at third slip! Too close in is Benn, but still it should've been taken. Jerome Taylor is a frustrated man.

129.3FOURJerome Taylor to Craig, FOUR, shocking stuff from the West Indian slip fielders! Now Gayle drops Craig. What is happening out there? Another edge and Ramdin should've gone for it, it was easier for him to catch to his left, instead he stands and allows Gayle to go for it, who is very slow to react, doesn't even get a finger on it in the end. Went to his right to catch and by the time, he reacted the ball had gone to the fence. Jerome Taylor must be livid and rightly so. Craig lives a charmed life274/8
131FOURBenn to Craig, FOUR, down leg and that's easy pickings for Craig. He nudges it wide of leg slip and that will be a boundary. No-one in the deep there279/8
131.4OTHERJerome Taylor to Craig, 2 runs, what a fighting Test match fifty that has been from Craig. He for sure has been lucky, but he has made the most of it. A risky single though to get there, as he punches wide of cover and calls Watling through. A direct hit would've seen Watling struggling for he was diving to make it, instead there is an overthrow and they take an extra run. No big celebrations from Craig, he just raises his bat and gets glove-love from Watling.282/8
133.3OTHERJerome Taylor to Craig, no run, short delivery, dug in and Craig sways out of the way, after arching his back286/8
135.2FOURJerome Taylor to Watling, FOUR, easy delivery to put away. Down leg and asking to be flicked, which Watling doesn't miss out. The lead increases to 54293/8
135.3OTHERJerome Taylor to Watling, 2 runs, superb rearguard fifty for Watling. He has always come to his side's rescue when the team is battling all odds. Great effort from the plucky wicket-keeper batsman. Gets applause from his team-mates in the dressing room295/8
141FOURRoach to Craig, FOUR, Craig has a smile after receiving a gift from Roach. A full toss outside off, he throws the bat and the outside edge runs away past the slip cordon and down to the third man fence, where there is no-one307/8
142.1FOURRoach to Craig, FOUR, one more outside edge and one more boundary - through the 2nd slip's hands and down to the vacant third man fence. A soft edge, which meant that it went to ground quickly, beat the sliding fielder to the fence. Craig gets lucky once more311/8
142.4OUTRoach to Craig, out Caught by Ramdin!! Brave, brave vigil comes to a close. He was fiddling at ones outside off, even in the last over off Roach, now he poked at one that he could've left, the bat hit the ground and the ball took the edge through to the keeper. West Indies knew it straightaway. Gould wasn't sure and took the help of the third umpire. Craig c Ramdin b Roach 67(167) [4s-9]311/9
148.5FOURS Gabriel to Boult, FOUR, why was there no extra slip? No third slip and the fend carries through there. Gabriel is an exasperated man. Bowled a very good short delivery, drew the awkward poke, it would've carried comfortably to that vacant position, but there was no-one to catch. What's worse is that the ball runs away to the boundary325/9
152FOURBenn to Watling, FOUR, Benn is a very unhappy man. Watling played the open faced drive wide of the diving point. He would've been happy with a single, but he gets a boundary. The bowler is ranting and raving, has a word with Ramdin. Sure is a grumpy man331/9
152.2OUTS Gabriel to Boult, out Caught by Ramdin!! Boult goes. Watling remains not out. The short delivery did the job. It will be lunch as well. Short outside off, Boult fiddled at it with an angled bat, it took a feather off the underside of the bat and nestled in Ramdin's mitts. West Indies are a relieved team. They need 93 to square the series. Boult c Ramdin b S Gabriel 8(21) [4s-1]331/10

0.1FOURSouthee to Gayle, FOUR, what a start that is to the innings. Fullish with a bit of inward shape, Gayle flicks and gets it over midwicket, that runs away to the fence. Nice start to the innings, that should get Gayle going4/0
0.5DROPPEDSouthee to Kraigg Brathwaite, no run, was that dropped? Looked like it. Yes - replays show it did carry to Rutherford. Kraigg Brathwaite went hard at a full delivery outside off, sliced the drive, point moving to his left got a hand to it, but by then the ball had gone past his outstretched left-hand. Brathwaite is indeed a lucky man.5/0
2FOURBoult to Gayle, FOUR, he tried that shot off the previous delivery, but has connected with this one. Went hard at that and once he middled it, it was always a boundary. Nice positive stroke to get things going9/0
2.4FOURSouthee to Gayle, FOUR, if it is pitched up, Gayle will go after it. Another clean lofted hit after clearing through the line. Middled it well and nearly carried all the way. That's good positive batting from Gayle14/0
3FOURSouthee to Gayle, FOUR, on the pads and that's a gift for Gayle. He gets forward and flicks it nonchalantly over midwicket. That's the third boundary of the over and looks like Gayle wants to end this quickly. Already 18 off 3 overs are West Indies18/0
4.2FOURSouthee to Gayle, FOUR, almighty swing, after stepping out, the thick edge flies over the slip cordon for a boundary. A lucky one it must be said. Gayle is a man in a hurry26/0
5.3SIXBoult to Gayle, SIX, that is a monster hit. It's on the roof. In his swinging arc and he absolutely rogers the ball back over Boult's head. The ball kept travelling and landed on the roof. Stunning, stunning strike that. What will Boult do now?37/0
5.5SIXBoult to Gayle, SIX, a flat-batted six. Gayle is on fire. Take that Boult he seems to say. Backs away and hammers it way over long-off. More of a T20 stroke that. Charged and got max elevation from the stroke43/0
6SIXBoult to Gayle, SIX, third six off the over and Boult is down on his knees. Gayle didn't time that as well as the previous two biggies. Backs away slightly and once again flat-bats it over long-off. A tiny six that by Gayle' standards. The West Indies score has rocketed along to 4949/0
7.1SIXIsh Sodhi to Gayle, SIX, that's a 28-ball fifty from Gayle. The Queen's Park Oval crowd are on their feet. Ish Sodhi is greeted with a first ball six. Can't bowl a full toss to this man, he tonks it miles over long-on. A raise of the bat and he carries on. Is this a Test match or something else? The crowd are being entertained big time55/0
7.3SIXIsh Sodhi to Gayle, SIX, another six and Ish Sodhi doesn't learn. Bowls another full toss, Gayle gets on his knees and launches it over deep midwicket. This fella is dealing in sixes at the moment. The match is as good as over63/0
8.5SIXCraig to Gayle, SIX, Gayle is treating the crowd to some big hits. Danced down the track and hit a skimmer to the deep cover fence. A real flat hit and the target is less than 20 now. And we have had only 9 overs so far, with a ball to go in the 9th over.74/0
9.3FOURIsh Sodhi to Kraigg Brathwaite, FOUR, lovely looking shot that. Overpitched by Ish Sodhi and Kraigg Brathwaite drove it wide of the diving short cover fielder, the ball beats the chasing fielders to the fence78/0
10.1FOURCraig to Gayle, FOUR, Gayle didn't time that well, but beats the sliding long-on running across, off the inside half of the bat and Sodhi couldn't haul it back in. Even when the field is spread, Gayle is taking them on82/0
13.2FOURWilliamson to Gayle, FOUR, that's it! West Indies win. Level the series 1-1. Very poor delivery from Williamson, short and wide, Gayle had all the time to cut it wherever he wanted to, he choose to do so, to the left of point. He has a big smile on his face, punches the air and handshakes all around now. Gayle leads the players off the field.95/0
