Hoggard to Ganga, FOUR, drifting down leg, and a clever little shot lifts it over the square leg, first boundary of the day, and it's been a long time coming

West Indies 17/1   D Ganga 8* (35b 1x4)   MJ Hoggard 5.5-2-14-1

West Indies 38/2   BC Lara 10* (29b 1x4)   SP Jones 2.1-1-11-0


Flintoff to Lara, FOUR, larrrrvley shot, leans on it slightly, and guides it through the covers, no problems

West Indies 56/2   RR Sarwan 16* (37b 2x4)   A Flintoff 5-1-14-0


Jones to Lara, FOUR, looks for a crashing off drive, edges, and it flies high through the gap in the slips

West Indies 62/2   BC Lara 25* (46b 4x4)   SP Jones 4.5-1-23-0


Jones to Sarwan, FOUR, bowler puts his back into that one, but it only helps it fly to the fine leg boundary even quicker

West Indies 67/2   RR Sarwan 22* (43b 3x4)   SP Jones 5.2-1-27-0


Harmison to Lara, FOUR, chases a wide one, and though the slips it goes, just passes by the feet of Flintoff

West Indies 83/2   RR Sarwan 29* (60b 4x4)   A Flintoff 5.2-1-18-0


Flintoff to Lara, FOUR, a bit short and on leg, too slow, Lara swivels on the back foot, mistimes the pull shot, but more than enough to get to the mid wicket

West Indies 88/2   BC Lara 36* (70b 6x4)   A Flintoff 5.5-1-23-0


Flintoff to Chanderpaul, FOUR, short ball, chanders takes the bait and goes for the hook, very unlike him, just wide enough of Harmison at long leg

Jones to Sarwan, FOUR, that's more like it! a very rash pull shot thunders to the boundary

West Indies 133/3   RR Sarwan 48* (114b 5x4)   SP Jones 8.4-1-33-0


Harmison to Sarwan, FOUR, leans back to make room, and cut it to the point boundary to bring up a fighting fifty

West Indies 138/3   RR Sarwan 52* (118b 6x4)   SJ Harmison 12.3-5-21-1


Harmison to Sarwan, FOUR, and another one, too short from harmison, this cut shot goes behind point

West Indies 142/3   RR Sarwan 56* (121b 7x4)   SJ Harmison 13-5-25-1


Giles to Chanderpaul, FOUR, ruins his figures - drops it short, Chanderpaul goes back, pulls it right out of the meat of the bat

West Indies 163/3   S Chanderpaul 33* (66b 3x4)   AF Giles 3.2-1-6-0


Giles to Hinds, FOUR, driven through the onside, midwicket and midon both have a peck at it, neither quite makes it

West Indies 174/4   RO Hinds 4* (12b 1x4)   AF Giles 5.4-1-15-0


Harmison to Jacobs, FOUR, carves it through the slips: Harmison 'oooos' at the end of his followthrough....

West Indies 183/5   RD Jacobs 4* (1b 1x4)   SJ Harmison 17-6-33-3


Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, shorter, Chanderpaul pulls, quickly into position, nice shot

West Indies 188/5   S Chanderpaul 43* (82b 4x4)   SJ Harmison 17.1-6-37-3


Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, he didn't know a lot about that - tries to pull the bat away, faint inside edge, almost chops on, beats everything and everyone

West Indies 192/5   S Chanderpaul 47* (85b 5x4)   SJ Harmison 17.4-6-41-3


Flintoff to Collins, FOUR, nicked between fourth slip and gully, perfectly safe,

West Indies 213/8   TL Best 8* (11b 1x4)   SP Jones 14.2-1-50-1
