The Wisden Trophy - 3rd Test

England v West Indies

England won by 60 runs

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

2.2

Taylor to Strauss, OUT, pitched up, Strauss plays round a straight ball and that looks out even before the umpire starts lifting his finger

AJ Strauss lbw b Taylor 6 (11m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 13/1   AN Cook 6* (8b 1x4)   JE Taylor 1.2-0-3-1

31.6

Collymore to Vaughan, OUT, great ball, nipping back in at Vaughan from just outside off. Full-length delivery, Vaughan plays down the wrong line and the ball takes off-and-middle stumps

MP Vaughan b Collymore 41 (123m 99b 6x4 0x6) SR: 41.41

England 117/2   AN Cook 55* (91b 9x4)   CD Collymore 9-4-12-1

37.6

Collymore to Pietersen, OUT, attempted bouncer - and gets the reward! Pietersen's eyes lit up, and couldn't control the hook which slips down deep square leg's throat, Bravo holding on without alarm

KP Pietersen c Bravo b Collymore 9 (24m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

England 132/3   AN Cook 60* (112b 10x4)   CD Collymore 12-4-21-2

40.3

Sammy to Cook, OUT, oh, cut down behind point - did it carry to Bravo? Yes, it did, just. Sammy has his first Test wicket

AN Cook c Bravo b Sammy 60 (171m 121b 10x4 0x6) SR: 49.58

England 132/4   PD Collingwood 0* (6b)   DJG Sammy 8.3-3-17-1

52.3

Taylor to Collingwood, OUT, an inswinger, Collingwood shuffles across his stumps but is rapped straight in front. A raucous appeal...and he's given him. The ball did look to be shaping down the leg side, but replays indicate leg stump would've been flattened

PD Collingwood lbw b Taylor 10 (72m 43b 2x4 0x6) SR: 23.25

England 166/5   IR Bell 16* (41b 3x4)   JE Taylor 9.3-0-39-2

77.4

Bravo to Prior, OUT, dug in for a third time in four, Prior goes to pull but doesn't get on top of it and the ball arcs right into the hands of Morton 10 or 15 yards inside the midwicket boundary. That was shorter and wider than the other ones and of them all, that was the one to leave ...

MJ Prior c Morton b Bravo 40 (116m 66b 7x4 0x6) SR: 60.60

England 264/6   IR Bell 69* (131b 12x4)   DJ Bravo 16.4-4-68-1

83.5

Edwards to Plunkett, OUT, super one-two ... the bouncer softened him up and Edwards follows with a good-length delivery which swings as well, Plunkett, heading ever-so-slightly towards square leg, is beaten all ends up and the ball hits the middle stump two-thirds up and sends it flying

LE Plunkett b Edwards 13 (28m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 285/7   IR Bell 75* (142b 12x4)   FH Edwards 13.5-2-74-1

93.2

Edwards to Harmison, OUT, yet another bouncer and this time it works, Harmison tries to get out of the way but it hits his gloves and gives Ramdin a simple catch. Bowden's decision is made easier as Harmison starts walking before hesitating and looking at the umpire

SJ Harmison c †Ramdin b Edwards 18 (48m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.06

England 324/8   IR Bell 84* (169b 12x4)   FH Edwards 18.2-2-85-2

100.4

Collymore to Bell, OUT, a superb delivery, another leg-cutter from Collymore and again he finds nasty bounce. Bell was drawn into a defensive poke on the back foot, but it jagged away markedly off the seam to take the edge and Ramdin snaffles an easy chance

IR Bell c †Ramdin b Collymore 97 (292m 191b 14x4 0x6) SR: 50.78

England 338/9   RJ Sidebottom 1* (22b)   CD Collymore 22.4-5-47-3

105.1

Edwards to Sidebottom, OUT, gone. Full and swinging into Sidebottom who was simply beaten for pace - his leg-stump flattened

RJ Sidebottom b Edwards 15 (58m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.87

England 370/10   MS Panesar 14* (18b 2x4)   FH Edwards 20.1-2-94-3
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
