15,16,17,18,19 June 2007 (5-day match)
  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal D Ganga* c Cook b Sidebottom 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 gone! First baller! Sidebottom looked to swing it in to the right-handed Ganga who flicks the ball straight to Cook at short leg who pouches a good catch 0/1
View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Hoggard 28 33 24 3 1 116.66
7.3 pitches just outside off, nips in towards middle and traps Gayle, who was going for the heave over midwicket, plumb on the back leg 32/2
View dismissal DS Smith b Sidebottom 4 38 26 0 0 15.38
8.4 an error of judgement there from Smith, who simply left the ball as it cut back in from off and takes the off stump 34/3
8.4 ooh and again he flashes at this, high over the slips but that could have gone anywhere 34/3
View dismissal RS Morton c Sidebottom b Harmison 6 47 24 1 0 25.00
16.6 but Harmison has got his hat on, as Morton drives this meekly to Sidebottom at mid-off. A very tame dismissal indeed, and Morton glares warily at the pitch as though "stopped" on him. But he only has himself to blame 55/4
S Chanderpaul not out 136 406 257 18 1 52.91
View dismissal DJ Bravo b Hoggard 44 124 97 6 0 45.36
45.6 and the pressure gets to him! A touch shorter from Hoggard, Bravo tries to pull it extravagantly but drags it onto his stumps 141/5
View dismissal MN Samuels b Sidebottom 19 79 64 3 0 29.68
63.4 Samuels thought it was going to go across him, but he exposed his leg stump and Sidebottom bowls him around his legs 199/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c Collingwood b Sidebottom 13 27 22 2 0 59.09
69.4 what a fine piece of bowling that is and a superb catch from Collingwood at second slip. Angled across him, the ball then cut back a touch to Ramdin who tried to punch it off the back foot but could only edge it to Collingwood who took it in front of his face 219/7
View dismissal DBL Powell c †Prior b Harmison 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
70.2 good grief. What a dreadful shot that is. A touch wider of the off stump and Powell tries to pull it, but skies it to Prior behind the stumps who steadies himself to take a comfortable catch 220/8
View dismissal FH Edwards b Sidebottom 5 20 13 1 0 38.46
73.5 bowled him! Edwards was back in his crease, trying to push it off the back foot but the inswing crept past his bat and knocked out his off stump 229/9
View dismissal CD Collymore lbw b Panesar 13 103 53 0 0 24.52

View dismissal AJ Strauss c †Ramdin b Edwards 77 169 136 11 0 56.61
37.1 there's the line and there's the edge! Strauss was uncertain in Edwards' last over, and he hadn't settled this time around either. The perfect line and high-kicking length to the left-hander, a thin graze through to Ramdin, and Edwards is off on his windscreen-wiper celebration. A big breaklthrough! 133/5
View dismissal AN Cook c †Ramdin b Edwards 13 31 18 2 0 72.22
6.4 oh what a soft dismissal. On his pads, Cook flicks at it but can't connect properly and gets a thin edge. Ramdin dives to his right to take a very fine, low catch 37/1
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Bravo b Edwards 19 105 66 3 0 28.78
31.4 Vaughan has gone this time - prodding away from his body, and that's a good catch snapped up by the reliable Bravo at second slip 110/2
View dismissal MJ Hoggard c Gayle b Collymore 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
32.3 pitched up, and Hoggard will be disappointed to have prodded away from his body, chasing the drive 119/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen c †Ramdin b Edwards 0 8 5 0 0 0.00
33.6 tempting short ball outside off, Pietersen goes to pull to midwicket and instead gets an under edge which flies straight through to Ramdin 121/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Collymore 128 264 188 17 0 68.08
93.6 That's the end of that! Probably beaten by boredom and over-confidence as much as anything else. Pitched up, tempted into a wild swing, and a thin deflection takes out off stump 369/8
View dismissal IR Bell c Morton b Powell 11 50 40 1 0 27.50
47.2 full, just outside off stump, Bell drives, gets a thick edge and the ball flies straight into gully's midriff 165/6
View dismissal MJ Prior c Smith b Edwards 62 156 107 4 2 57.94
85.3 Prior looks to pull a shorter ball and Devon Smith, running in from deep square leg, takes a good catch a foot or so off the ground 334/7
View dismissal SJ Harmison c Ganga b Powell 9 42 23 1 0 39.13
94.1 Two in two! A big, big heave-ho from Harmison, but he got more height than distance and Ganga at extra cover circled underneath the ball and gobbled a simple chance 369/9
RJ Sidebottom not out 26 28 19 5 0 136.84
View dismissal MS Panesar b Powell 4 25 16 0 0 25.00
99.6 and that's the end of that. Back of a length, Panesar goes back to defend, and loses his bails via an inside-edge 400/10

View dismissal CH Gayle c †Prior b Hoggard 52 112 71 7 0 73.23
23.4 the breakthrough, Hoggard persists with his line outside off, Gayle drives and edges, a jubilant Prior doesn't have to move to take the catch 94/4
View dismissal DS Smith lbw b Hoggard 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
1.5 full inswinger to the left hander, pitches middle, Smith plays round it, and the ball would have hit middle two-thirds of the way up. An easy decision for Billy Bowden, and the tactical switch of openers hasn't worked 7/1
View dismissal D Ganga* c †Prior b Hoggard 6 17 11 1 0 54.54
5.3 loose drive, feeling for the outswinger, and Prior holds an oh-so-obvious edge at knee height to his right 15/2
View dismissal RS Morton b Panesar 7 15 7 1 0 100.00
8.4 Morton goes back and shapes to hammer it through the covers, gets a big bottom edge and the ball crashes into his off stump. He stands for a moment looking at his bat almost as if he has been betrayed by an old friend and then turns and heads off 38/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul b Panesar 70 255 163 6 0 42.94
63.6 an attempted action replay, but this one bites more than the last and the timbers are rattled! Chanderpaul's magnificent resistance is over. Since his last dismissal, he's been unbeaten for five minutes shy of 18 hours. Wonderful effort 222/10
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Sidebottom b Panesar 43 100 74 9 0 58.10
43.3 Bravo tries to repeat the shot but the ball was closer to him and instead of going high and far it just went high, Sidebottom at mid-off had a long time to wait for gravity to take effect but he made no mistake 162/5
View dismissal MN Samuels c Collingwood b Panesar 2 14 10 0 0 20.00
47.4 undone by spin and bounce, Samuels pushes forward, the ball takes the edge high on the bat and Collingwood at first slip holds it high to his right 169/6
View dismissal D Ramdin b Panesar 4 14 12 0 0 33.33
51.1 dipping, spinning, Ramdin, out of his depth against Harmison in the last over, is utterly bemused by one from Monty that pitches on middle and hits off 175/7
View dismissal DBL Powell c Vaughan b Harmison 4 13 12 1 0 33.33
54.2 now, that is just brainless batting. A repeat performance of his first-innings dismissal, Powell has a loose uppish waft outside off stump, gets right underneath the shot, and dollies the simplest chance to Vaughan walking in from short mid-off. Another one bites the dust, and England scent a 3-0 rout 188/8
View dismissal FH Edwards b Harmison 0 8 7 0 0 0.00
56.3 and that was even better! Full and straight, and utterly unstoppable. The off stump does a cartwheel, middle is knocked askew as well, and England are inching ever closer to the knockout 194/9
