and, as Rudy Koertzen says, 'that's the over, and time'. Match State: Stumps - Day 1 Another interesting day's play - England put the West Indies in. Lara's return to better form may have made them wonder if that was the right move, but the loss of 7 West Indies wickets for 60 runs, including a Flintoff 5-fer, will justify it. The reply has been marred by Trescothick's continuing form horror, but Butcher and Vaughan have seen the day out.
