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

England v West Indies

England won by 8 wickets (with 30 balls remaining)

8.3

Anderson to Gayle, SIX, and Boom goes the dynamite! Anderson dropped short and Gayle smashes a pull shot deep into the stand over the midwicket boundary. That had both wings and a jet pack

West Indies 29/0   CH Gayle 22* (25b 3x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 4.3-2-10-0

9.2

Bresnan to Gayle, SIX, overpitched on the stumps and this one is dispatched back down the ground for another Dorothy, Gayle so still at the crease as he watches it sail away

West Indies 36/0   CH Gayle 29* (28b 3x4 2x6)   TT Bresnan 0.2-0-6-0

9.3

Bresnan to Gayle, SIX, there he goes again, stepping out to flat-bat another brutal hit straight back over Bresnan's head!

West Indies 42/0   CH Gayle 35* (29b 3x4 3x6)   TT Bresnan 0.3-0-12-0

9.6

Bresnan to Gayle, SIX, monstrous, monstrous hitting from Christopher Henry Gayle! Bresnan was a touch short and Gayle stepped away and mullered him on to the roof of the stand above the players' dressing rooms - tidal wave, tsunami, here it comes!

West Indies 48/0   CH Gayle 41* (32b 3x4 4x6)   TT Bresnan 1-0-18-0

10.4

Anderson to Gayle, SIX, slightly full from Anderson and Gayle languidly deposits the ball straight back down the ground for his fifth six! That brings up the Windies fifty - and Gayle has 47 of them

West Indies 55/0   CH Gayle 47* (35b 3x4 5x6)   JM Anderson 5.4-2-18-0

29.1

Bresnan to Bravo, SIX, full just outside off and lashed over wide long off, excellent strike into the stands

West Indies 106/4   DJ Bravo 16* (27b 1x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 5.1-1-29-0

34.3

Swann to Pollard, SIX, misread the length again but raw power gets a big six over cow corner, huge inside edge that flew into the crowd

West Indies 133/4   KA Pollard 28* (39b 2x4 1x6)   GP Swann 6.3-1-24-1

42.4

Swann to Bravo, SIX, step back and heaved over long on, I didn't think he'd caught this well enough to start with but enough bat to get it into the crowd

West Indies 200/5   DJ Bravo 66* (70b 7x4 2x6)   GP Swann 8.4-1-35-1

44.6

Swann to Sammy, SIX, full toss on leg stump, it comes off a bit of a top edge and flies over long leg for six. I was thinking out to start with that is a handy maximum

West Indies 219/5   DJG Sammy 21* (18b 1x4 1x6)   GP Swann 10-1-49-1
