West Indies tour of England and Ireland, 2007 / Wicket commentary

The Wisden Trophy - 1st Test

England v West Indies

Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150


Powell to Strauss, OUT, goddim! Poor shot from Strauss, spooning it to Devon Smith at backward point. He never got on top of it - perhaps beaten by the lack of pace, if anything - and guided it straight to Smith

AJ Strauss c Smith b Powell 33 (100m 70b 6x4 0x6) SR: 47.14

England 88/1   AN Cook 48* (75b 4x4)   DBL Powell 9.1-2-19-1


Powell to Shah, OUT, GONE! Powell strikes again - a very fine ball indeed, angling into Shah before cutting away from the right hander who fended it at hip height to Smith. Great ball; excellent comeback from the Windians, and from Powell in particular

OA Shah c Smith b Powell 6 (20m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

England 103/2   AN Cook 56* (83b 4x4)   DBL Powell 11.3-3-23-2


Collymore to Pietersen, OUT, gone and Collymore strikes! The bowler had Pietersen feeling for that one, who drove on the up to Smith at extra cover, straight into the midriff and the fielder juggled it twice, before holding on

KP Pietersen c Smith b Collymore 26 (77m 44b 4x4 0x6) SR: 59.09

England 162/3   AN Cook 86* (136b 8x4)   CD Collymore 14.4-4-48-1


Taylor to Cook, OUT, short, wide and gone! And that's a very deserved wicket for Taylor at last, Bravo taking a straightforward catch from Cook's cut to the covers

AN Cook c Bravo b Taylor 105 (285m 196b 10x4 0x6) SR: 53.57

England 219/4   PD Collingwood 32* (53b 3x4)   JE Taylor 9.3-0-48-1


Bravo to Collingwood, OUT, bowled him! Fantastic ball, the inswinger which bent back sharply into Collingwood - at pace, too - knocking back his off stump. Collingwood perhaps expected that one to swing away from him, as Bravo has been doing. Really fine piece of bowling

PD Collingwood b Bravo 111 (278m 209b 14x4 0x6) SR: 53.11

England 363/5   IR Bell 56* (106b 9x4)   DJ Bravo 22.5-7-59-1
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
