NatWest Series [West Indies in England] - 2nd ODI

England v West Indies

England won by 8 wickets (with 30 balls remaining)

16.1

Broad to Smith, no run, touch short and blocked outside the line of off

16.2

Broad to Smith, OUT, wide-ish and Smith nicks off! The ball might have left him a touch and he went for a full-blooded mow, only to thin one through to the keeper. Bit of a gimme wicket, that, and England's decision to bowl first is looking less like the madness it seemed 10 minutes ago

DR Smith c †Kieswetter b Broad 0 (9m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

16.3

Broad to Samuels, no run, back of a length and shaping away, pushed into the off side

16.4

Broad to Samuels, no run, pitched up and Samuels is down on one knee to hammer a drive straight at the cover fielder

16.5

Broad to Samuels, 2 runs, length ball, doesn't get up as Samuels tries to cut off the back foot but he gets a couple via a bottom edge to fine leg

16.6

Broad to Samuels, FOUR, wide of the stumps and punched lazily square for an exquisitely timed boundary through point - hold the pose Marlon

West Indies 69/2   SCJ Broad 1-0-6-1

18.1

Broad to Simmons, no run, touch short and Simmons swings his arms at this one, but the cut bounces down into the ground and is fielded at point

18.3

Broad to Simmons, 1 run, full and straight and on-driven for one back past the bowler

18.5

Broad to Samuels, no run, full and driven to mid-off

18.6

Broad to Samuels, 1 run, tries the bouncer and Samuels is a little late on it, top-edging a hook into a gap in front of deep square leg

West Indies 72/2   SCJ Broad 2-0-8-1

20.1

Broad to Samuels, 1 run, pitched up and nudge to mid-off, they take a sharp single

20.2

Broad to Simmons, OUT, Simmons tries the same thing and Cook, who had come in a yard or two, runs him out with a direct hit from mid-off! Good piece of work from the captain, leaving the batsman half a yard short. Simmons has to go and he trudges off at about the same pace with which he scored his 12 runs

LMP Simmons run out 12 (96m 50b 1x4 0x6) SR: 24.00

20.3

Broad to Samuels, no run, good length and blocked solidly

Broad to Samuels, no run, tight line on the stumps, Samuels guides this to gully

Broad to Samuels, no run, bumper, at the man, who leans out of the way

20.6

Broad to Samuels, OUT, Samuels - who I was about to say looked in good nick - top-edges a brisk bouncer straight to deep midwicket! He got in a tangle against a short ball a couple of overs back but it lobbed short ... this time the miscue sailed high and not-so-handsome to the fielder on the rope

MN Samuels c Bresnan b Broad 13 (22m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.90
