The Wisden Trophy - 4th Test

England v West Indies

England won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

7.4

Hoggard to Morton, 1 run, good line and just a touch too full in length, Morton off the mark immediately with a guide to short midwicket

West Indies 33/2   RS Morton 1* (1b)

9.1

Hoggard to Morton, no run, huge arc - Noah would be proud - away from the righthander, who leaves it

9.1

Hoggard to Morton, no run, Vaughan is forward, rather tentatively, driving out to cover meekly

9.2

Hoggard to Morton, no run, left alone outside off this time

9.2

Hoggard to Morton, no run, a loose flash outside the off stump from Vaughan. He could so easily have edged that

9.3

Hoggard to Morton, no run, slinks down the channel, shoulders arms early, and wisely

9.3

Hoggard to Morton, no run, well left outside the off stump - though it was a touch too wide to be fair

9.4

Hoggard to Morton, no run, very wide down off, Prior pressed into action, nearly diving across first slip to take it

9.4

Hoggard to Morton, no run, better line this time. Vaughan goes back and across to defend

9.5

Hoggard to Morton, no run, bends over the ball as it crashes on leg, and nudges it to short square

9.5

Hoggard to Morton, no run, elegantly driven out to cover

9.6

Hoggard to Morton, no run, on middle, bends over again, and just to say gets some bat on it

West Indies 34/3   RS Morton 1* (7b)

11.1

Hoggard to Morton, no run, a beauty outside off, drawing him into a drive and it swings away at the last moment

11.2

Hoggard to Morton, no run, lovely bowling, Morton coming forward and actually played it quite neatly to gully

11.3

Hoggard to Morton, no run, ooh and he tries to leave this at the last moment but gets a bottom edge which bobbles backwardly to the keeper

11.4

Hoggard to Morton, no run, Morton is forward on the front foot, angling this to gully

11.5

Hoggard to Morton, no run, more delicious banana swing - Morton can't even peel it, let alone taste it

11.6

Hoggard to Morton, no run, a solid thump to Monty at mid-off who receives ironic applause for stopping it

West Indies 34/3   RS Morton 1* (13b)

12.6

Sidebottom to Morton, no run, a big, two-fingers-up-I'm-demanding-you-give-that-out appeal from Sidebottom but he's well outside the line

West Indies 43/3   RS Morton 1* (14b)

13.6

Hoggard to Morton, no run, left alone outside off

West Indies 44/3   RS Morton 1* (15b)

15.1

Hoggard to Morton, no run, a lovely awayswinger which Morton clamps down on

15.2

Hoggard to Morton, no run, Morton shuffles across his stumps to defend this out to cover

15.3

Hoggard to Morton, 1 run, ah, super piece of running there, dropping it out to cover and sprinting through for a single

West Indies 49/3   RS Morton 2* (18b)

16.1

Harmison to Morton, no run, big, big bounce here from Harmison and prodigious movement back into Morton. But it's easily left alone on length

16.2

Harmison to Morton, FOUR, magnificent shot! He stands tall and smacks it off the back foot through extra cover. Short and wide (naturally) but Morton climbed into it and fairly creamed it

16.3

Harmison to Morton, no run, this hurries Morton who pushes it out to the off side. Harmison is very quick to sprint down and field, preventing a single

16.4

Harmison to Morton, no run, good line, good length, Morton defends off the back foot

16.5

Harmison to Morton, no run, nicely bowled. Morton plays it as late as he can, and nearly loses his middle stump in doing so

16.6

Harmison to Morton, OUT, 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

RS Morton c Sidebottom b Harmison 6 (47m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

West Indies 55/4   RS Morton 6 (24b 1x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
