OUT! In the air... and that is another exceptional catch! Nurse is the man this time. Fuller ball on off, McClenaghan swings but only manages to hit it high up in the air. There were quite a few fielders converging towards the ball but Nurse who runs in from sweeper cover, calls for it and takes it diving forward. They go upstairs to check for the no ball but the bowler has not overstepped. Smiles in the Windies camp as THEY HAVE WON BY 72 RUNS!
