    2.1 a brilliant catch from Allen. Was fuller outside off, Gunathilaka went down on one knee and looked to smash it down the ground but ended up mistiming and instead hit it just to the right of the bowler, who showed great reflexes to take it one-handed to his right and cling on to it 10/1
    5.6 Sri Lanka lose their third. Short of length from Holder. Nissanka backs away but is cramped and ends up chipping it towards mid-off. Sinclair takes a couple of steps sideways and backwards and takes the tumbling catch 27/3
    3.4 a top edge this time and Holder pouches it. Length ball around off and middle. Dickwella went for the slog sweep, was aiming to go over midwicket but got a top edge and the ball ballooned towards wide mid-on. Holder took a few steps to his left and grabbed it. Sinclair brings out the somersault 15/2

    9.3 Mathews falls as well. Was a length ball in the channel. Mathews looked to guide it towards third man but managed just an outside edge and an easy catch for Pooran behind the stumps 46/4

    6.5 loses his patience. I thought the plan was to play Hasaranga out. Skips down the track and looks to smash it over the bowler's head but his feet are nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Misses it altogether - kept a touch low as well - and Dickwella whipped the bails off 54/2

    4.4 this time it's plumb. The finger goes up and Lewis doesn't review. Sri Lanka have got a breakthrough. Was a googly from Hasaranga, landed on middle and leg this time. Lewis once again went for the sweep and missed. Was hit on the pads in front. Think it would have clipped the off stump. Replays show it would have smashed the off stick in fact 37/1

    11.3 got him in the flight! Gayle's struggles in this series continue! This is tossed up beautifully from Sandakan, who lures Gayle into a big drive. But then Sandakan has it dipping, pitching on about middle, and turning to beat the shot. It clatters into the wickets. Sri Lanka are keeping themselves in this 75/4
    7.6 big wicket, Pollard falls for a duck. It was a length outside off, Pollard fished at it, looking to get a single to third man but managed only an outside edge. A good tumbling take by Dickwella as the ball was dying on him 61/3
    14.2 bowled! That's a special delivery from Chameera. Sri Lanka are not going down without a fight, and for the first time in this game, it's a quick bowler that's imposing himself. This was a length ball angled in from around the wicket to the left hander. But when it pitches, it leaves the batsman slightly, and Pooran is playing down the wrong line. It beats his outside edge and clips the top of off stump. Chameera is ecstatic 95/5

    16.4 gone now. Whenever West Indies get themselves some breathing room, Sri Lanka keep pulling themselves back into it. This is another slider, which Powell goes back to again and makes a mess of. It skids into the top of the off stump and Sandakan has responded strongly to that big shot. 105/6
    16.5 two in two for Sandakan! He tosses one up outside the leg stump to Bravo to start with, and it's the googly, so while it's pitched way outside leg, it's coming back into the stumps. Bravo gets down to paddle sweep it, but the googly has bounced a bit and it takes the top edge and floats out to short fine leg where a simple catch is taken. 105/7
