23 September 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Bopara to Hyatt, 1 run, pitched right up on off stump and it's drilled to long off


Bopara to Charles, no run, ah, a back-of-the-hand slower ball from Bopara. Not quite picked by the batsman, but he puts bat to ball to keep it out


Bopara to Charles, no run, driven into the covers. Bopara is holding them back nicely here


Bopara to Charles, no run, beaten outside off! Charles was back and shaping to cut


Bopara to Charles, no run, another slower one, and it's really well bowled. Charles had committed to a heave to leg but couldn't get anything on it


Bopara to Charles, no run, yet another slow cutter to finish the over, and an angled bat sends the ball to gully

West Indies 72/2   RS Bopara 1-0-1-0

Bopara to Hyatt, 1 run, yep, he starts with a back-of-the-hand slower one that is chopped down towards gully


Bopara to Bonner, OUT, Bopara strikes! He zipped this one in much quicker, the ball swung in sharply even as Bonner backed away slightly to the leg side, taking an inside edge and ricocheting off the pad and into the stumps

NE Bonner b Bopara 3 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00


Bopara to Barnwell, OUT, great catch! Bopara is on a hat-trick thanks to a superb diving catch from Kieswetter. The keeper had gone back for the new batsman. Bopara sent down a quick delivery on a length, catching the edge off a leaden-footed Barnwell

CD Barnwell c †Kieswetter b Bopara 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Bopara to Russell, no run, nope, he sends one down full and wide outside off, and Russell is quite happy to raise his arms and leave


Bopara to Russell, 1 run, this is great bowling from Bopara. A quick yorker zones in on Russell's toes, but the bat comes down just in time to keep it out. There was a speculative appeal from Bopara, but that was bat first


Bopara to Hyatt, no run, a very slow legcutter jags away outside off, but Hyatt keeps his bat inside the line

West Indies 105/5   RS Bopara 2-0-3-2

Bopara to Hyatt, no run, completely undone by the slower one. Hyatt shuffles back and forth and lines up a heave to midwicket, but he was through the shot before the ball had even arrived


Bopara to Hyatt, 1 run, OUT, run out! England strike again. Hyatt cleared the left leg and slapped one down the ground, but Stokes was in from long-on in a flash and as Russell hustled for the second he fired a sharp throw to Bopara at the non-striker's end. The stumps were disturbed in a flash with the batsman short of his ground. Good throw

AD Russell run out 6 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Bopara to Hyatt, OUT, gone! Well, Bopara is really turning it on with the ball. This was a seam up quicker one, and it swung in sharply to beat Hyatt's swishing blade and disturb the timber

DP Hyatt b Bopara 28 (32m 26b 1x4 2x6) SR: 107.69


Bopara to Sammy, no run, captain Sammy carefully tapes his first ball away into the covers


Bopara to Sammy, 2 runs, a slower delivery is squeezed out past point, and tag-team fielding on the boundary keeps them to a hard run two


Bopara to Sammy, 2 runs, another slower one, this time Sammy hangs back and chops through cover point for two more

West Indies 116/7   RS Bopara 3-0-8-3

Bopara to Sammy, no run, he starts with a slower one that Sammy is content to just nudge towards midwicket


Bopara to Sammy, 1 run, Sammy sends the ball to deep midwicket with plenty of bottom hand, but it's just a single


Bopara to Edwards, 1 run, a slow legcutter from Bopara, and well played by the No. 11, who waited for it and angled the ball to gully


Bopara to Sammy, OUT, gone! Sammy tried to mow a length delivery over midwicket, but got right underneath it and Bairstow was waiting for the chance after running in from the boundary

DJG Sammy c Bairstow b Bopara 5 (11m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

West Indies 125/10   RS Bopara 3.4-0-10-4
