However, yesterday's performance was no less significant On a pitch that was assisting the medium pacers, West Indies surprisingly succumbed to the spin of Dockrell. From 78 for 2, they collapsed to 87 for 5.

Though Darren Sammy and Lendl Simmons put on a sixth wicket partnership of 154 runs, the time they took to resurrect the innings proved costly for the 1975 and 1979 champions.
