West Indies tour of England, 3rd ODI: England v West Indies at Birmingham, May 26, 2009
England won by 58 runs
26 May 2009 (50-over match)
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* st †Ramdin b Benn 52 66 4 0 78.78
23.3 strange stumping, beats him with a straighter ball outside off, extra bounce, Ramdin takes a lot of time to bring it back and remove the bail, but Strauss's foot is stuck on the line, he didn't seem to know he had dragged it onto the line, good bowling to start it off though 129/2
View dismissal RS Bopara b Bravo 49 54 7 0 90.74
14.6 he misses the 50, lack of pace does him in, it's back of a length, outside off, moving in, he is too early into his forward defensive, gets a bottom edge onto the pad, and the ball rolls through to the stumps 81/1
View dismissal MJ Prior b Taylor 87 86 5 0 101.16
45.3 Prior slogs, misses, and Taylor hits. Simple dismissal. Full and straight, and another England batsman misses out on a hundred. In fact he gets out on the Aussie devil's number 289/5
View dismissal OA Shah c Morton b Taylor 75 65 4 2 115.38
43.6 slog-sweep off a fast bowler, and he doesn't quite get enough on it, it was wide outside off, so he had to drag it, and perhaps that's why didn't get enough to clear deep midwicket. There was a century in sight, but well played Owais 278/3
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas c & b Pollard 0 1 0 0 0.00
44.2 gone first ball, carries with him the IPL golden-duck flu, length ball, on off stump, is way too early into the shot, and an easy catch for Pollard, maybe he was surprised by the slowness of the pitch, but after 40 overs of watching should have known better 279/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Taylor 23 14 2 1 164.28
47.4 finally Taylor goes full and straight, Collingwood makes room, tries a hard hit, misses, the leg stump is out of the ground. Makes you wonder why he has been trying those limp bouncers 308/6
EJG Morgan not out 6 5 0 0 120.00
View dismissal TT Bresnan c Rampaul b Pollard 9 7 2 0 128.57
48.5 slower ball, Bresnan is early into this lofted shot, and holes out to long-on, the offcutter does the trick 317/7
SCJ Broad not out 6 4 0 0 150.00
Extras (b 2, lb 7, w 10, nb 2) 21
  Total (7 wickets; 50 overs) 328 (6.56 runs per over)

14.6 to Bopara, he misses the 50, lack of pace does him in, it's back of a length, outside off, moving in, he is too early into his forward defensive, gets a bottom edge onto the pad, and the ball rolls through to the stumps 81/1

View dismissal CH Gayle* c Bopara b Broad 11 10 2 0 110.00
2.2 soft, really soft, he has been waiting for anything short, but this one is on the stumps, he goes for the pull, hits him high on the bat, and a dolly offered to Bopara at mid-on 13/1
View dismissal RS Morton run out (Collingwood/Bresnan) 21 37 2 0 56.75
15.2 from Bresnan, and Morton is run out again! The Shiv and Runako band has given us another symphony. He had punched this powerfully off the back foot, wide of sweeper-cover, he wants two, Shiv never wanted it, the hand is up immediately, but Morton keeps running, maybe not expecting the throw to come his end, but Collingwood goes non-striker's end, on the top of stumps, and finds Morton short 66/3
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Strauss b Anderson 9 5 2 0 180.00
3.1 lovely catch from Strauss, length ball, outside off, Sarwan goes for the drive, stops a bit, flying to the left of cover, and Strauss sticks out his left hand, and takes it cleanly 22/2
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Bopara b Broad 68 108 5 0 62.96
37.4 and immediately he goes, full, outside off, he drags it from there, goes to beat midwicket, and gives Bopara a sitter. Chanderpaul had to work hard for his runs, but not enough intent in his innings, one feels 181/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo lbw b Bresnan 26 22 2 2 118.18
22.1 and gets Bravo with the second, big big wicket. Back of a length, jagging in from outside off, Bravo steps across, misses, is hit in front of middle and leg (more leg than middle), is given, seeming to go down the leg side 99/4
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Prior b Anderson 45 48 2 0 93.75
38.4 game, set, match, slower bouncer, cuts in, Ramdin cuts hard, gets a thick edge, Prior takes it one-handed 189/6
View dismissal KA Pollard run out (†Prior) 12 9 1 0 133.33
41.1 from Broad, bowls a big wide down the leg side, and hang on, a bizarre dismissal, Pollard wants one on a fumble, but is sent back by Taylor, Pollard dives in to make it in, but when the hand hits the ground, the bat goes up in the air, and immediately then Prior's throw hits the stumps 212/7
View dismissal JE Taylor run out (Strauss/Bresnan) 18 12 3 0 150.00
42.6 Bresnan to Benn, another run-out, good length, gets a thick edge towards point, Strauss fields, looks up and sees a mid-pitch confusion and Taylor has to hurry back towards the none-striker's end, the throw is good, on the bounce and he is found short. Lots of yesses and nos in this one 223/8
View dismissal SJ Benn b Anderson 31 29 3 1 106.89
49.4 yorker, middle stump, bowled, thanks for coming West Indies. But maybe not, the way they have played through both the Test and ODI series 270/10
View dismissal R Rampaul b Swann 16 10 1 1 160.00
46.5 tries one shot too many, makes room, looks to go inside out out, Swann fires it straight, gets the middle stump 254/9
