West Indies tour of England, 1st ODI: England v West Indies at Southampton, Jun 16, 2012
England won by 114 runs (D/L method)
16 June 2012 (50-over match)

Rampaul to Cook, OUT, now forced to play and caught behind! For the third time in a row a ball in the channel just outside off, this time Cook decided to come forward to play and got a thin edge through to Ramdin. I reckon in a Test match, Cook leaves that but one-dayers wants bat on ball, pushed at it and nicked off for a third-ball duck. Great start from Rampaul

AN Cook c †Ramdin b Rampaul 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   IR Bell 0* (0b)   R Rampaul 0.3-0-0-1

Narine to Trott, OUT, back to cut and he's caught behind! A thin nick through to the wicketkeeper and Trott falls when he was well set. A length ball skidded through and took the outside edge where Ramdin took the catch and went straight up, as did the umpire's finger

IJL Trott c †Ramdin b Narine 42 (94m 66b 3x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

England 108/2   IR Bell 60* (54b 6x4 1x6)   SP Narine 4.3-0-23-1

Samuels to Bopara, OUT, flatter, pushed through and gottim! It was a faster delivery, sliding in towards Bopara, who tried to cut when there wasn't quite the room, snicking a thin edge through to Ramdin

RS Bopara c †Ramdin b Samuels 8 (22m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

England 136/3   IR Bell 80* (75b 8x4 1x6)   MN Samuels 1.3-0-8-1

Samuels to Morgan, OUT, gone! A most low-key dismissal, there was barely a murmur from the crowd or players as Morgan chopped on to his stumps. Samuels speared down a quicker ball, angled across, and Morgan tried to make room for a trademark slash, only to bottom-edge the ball on to off stump. Samuels has defused a ticking bomb with the minimum of fuss

EJG Morgan b Samuels 21 (39m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 84.00

England 187/4   IR Bell 109* (102b 10x4 1x6)   MN Samuels 6-0-32-2

DJ Bravo to Bell, OUT, slower ball, Bell swipes at it and the ball loops straight up and down to be caught by Ramdin. England's centurion is gone! It was effectively a low full-toss from Bravo but the lack of pace foxed Bell, who top-edged his attempted paddle through the on side. Slightly tame dismissal but that was a magnificent innings from Bell

IR Bell c †Ramdin b DJ Bravo 126 (178m 117b 12x4 1x6) SR: 107.69

England 216/5   C Kieswetter 10* (11b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 5.2-0-25-1

Samuels to Bresnan, 1 run, OUT, flighted on the stumps and turned out towards deep square leg ... they take on Dwayne Smith's arm in search of a second - but Bresnan is short! Ramdin did well to collect and break to wicket at Bresnan stretched for the line, leaving him a couple of inches short. A bustling, no-nonsense knock comes to a leggy end

TT Bresnan run out 21 (23m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 245/6   C Kieswetter 17* (20b 1x4)   MN Samuels 8.2-0-42-2
