1.4

Harmison to Ganga, OUT, got him. A sharp incutter rapping him on the pads, and that's absolutely plumb

D Ganga lbw b Harmison 5 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

West Indies 17/1   CH Gayle 1* (4b)   SJ Harmison 0.4-0-7-1

9.3

Plunkett to Gayle, OUT, full, and Gayle slices right to gully, for a good, low catch

CH Gayle c Cook b Plunkett 23 (43m 34b 5x4 0x6) SR: 67.64

West Indies 49/2   DS Smith 2* (17b)   LE Plunkett 0.3-0-1-1

22.5

Harmison to Morton, OUT, Harmison strikes, the ball jags back at Morton's throat and he can only fend the ball to Strauss's midriff at first slip

RS Morton c Strauss b Harmison 35 (56m 39b 3x4 2x6) SR: 89.74

West Indies 116/3   DS Smith 19* (59b 2x4)   SJ Harmison 5.5-2-27-2

31.1

Panesar to Smith, OUT, a superb catch from Ian Bell at silly point. An inside edge from Smith onto his heel, the ball ballooning just in front of Bell who dived forward with both hands and took it grass height

DS Smith c Bell b Panesar 40 (129m 84b 5x4 0x6) SR: 47.61

West Indies 157/4   S Chanderpaul 19* (26b 2x4)   MS Panesar 6.1-0-31-1

45.3

Sidebottom to Bravo, OUT, angling across Bravo who remained on the back foot. He was drawn into a defensive prod, edging the ball to Prior's right who dived and took an excellent catch

DJ Bravo c †Prior b Sidebottom 24 (55m 54b 3x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

West Indies 216/5   S Chanderpaul 47* (59b 7x4)   RJ Sidebottom 8.3-2-42-1

49.3

Sidebottom to Ramdin, OUT, a bouncer tempting the hook. The pace, rather than the bounce, did him. The trap worked. Pietersen, at square leg, was smiling even before he'd caught that

D Ramdin c Pietersen b Sidebottom 5 (21m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

West Indies 224/6   S Chanderpaul 50* (72b 7x4)   RJ Sidebottom 10.3-2-47-2

50.2

Panesar to Sammy, OUT, popped up, hit the glove, and well snapped up at first slip, taking it as he fell, he couldn't have seen the deflection as it came from across the keeper

DJG Sammy c Collingwood b Panesar 1 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

West Indies 225/7   S Chanderpaul 50* (73b 7x4)   MS Panesar 15.2-4-46-2

50.4

Panesar to Taylor, OUT, got him! Great bowling from Panesar again, tempting the steer to second slip. Well held

JE Taylor c Strauss b Panesar 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 225/8   S Chanderpaul 50* (73b 7x4)   MS Panesar 15.4-4-46-3

51.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, OUT, gone. Poked up to cover and snapped up by Pietersen, easily

S Chanderpaul c Pietersen b Sidebottom 50 (130m 78b 7x4 0x6) SR: 64.10

West Indies 225/9   CD Collymore 0* (2b)   RJ Sidebottom 11.5-2-48-3

52.4

Panesar to Collymore, OUT, and it's all over - the batsman going for the drive and edging to first slip, where it's held without trouble

CD Collymore c Collingwood b Panesar 4 (11m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

West Indies 229/10   FH Edwards 0* (1b)   MS Panesar 16.4-5-50-4
