1.1

Hoggard to Gayle, no run, over the wicket to the left hander, on middle to start, nipping in off the seam, Gayle poking down off the back foot, the ball running to gully

1.2

Hoggard to Gayle, no run, lone appeal from the bowler, which he pulls out of, as the ball pitches on leg and would have gone down past leg

1.3

Hoggard to Gayle, no run, swing again, left easily enough

1.4

Hoggard to Gayle, 1 run, pushed right up there, on off, pokes forward and shuffles a quick single through

West Indies 1/1   CH Gayle 1* (4b)
2.4

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, down leg again, left this time

2.5

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, oh, very close shout, but Umpire Bowden turns it down on the grounds of height - what was Gayle doing leaving that one back into him, I will never know

2.6

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, down the corridor, left very easily

West Indies 3/1   CH Gayle 1* (7b)
3.3

Hoggard to Gayle, no run, straight and defended down off the back foot

3.4

Hoggard to Gayle, 1 run, punched off his legs just beyond short leg

West Indies 5/1   CH Gayle 2* (9b)
4.1

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, swing very well down leg

4.2

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, down leg, good take by Prior - he's had a good workout today

4.3

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, defended down off the back foot this time

4.4

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, on the off-side this time, but wide enough to be left - some good swing away down the channel

4.5

Sidebottom to Gayle, FOUR, width outside off and Gayle latches on by lashing a firm cut off the back foot

4.6

Sidebottom to Gayle, 3 runs, hit hard through wide mid-off, straight through Panesar who turns and chases well inside the boundary as the moist outfield slows the ball's progress

West Indies 12/1   CH Gayle 9* (15b 1x4)
5.1

Hoggard to Gayle, 1 run, swing back into the left hander from outside off, who chops back down and nearly on to his stumps - the ball runs down to fine leg

5.3

Hoggard to Gayle, 3 runs, on middle-and-leg, fullish length on his pads, driven just inside the boundary, Vaughan in hot pursuit

West Indies 17/1   CH Gayle 13* (17b 1x4)
6.1

Sidebottom to Gayle, FOUR, pitched up there, Gayle beats Panesar at wide mid-on this time with a forceful drive, Panesar with a half-hearted attempt to stop the ball

6.2

Sidebottom to Gayle, SIX, now that's a lovely shot through midwicket - just lifted with a flick, hardly any power on that one at all, pure timing

6.3

Sidebottom to Gayle, no run, driven, less authoritatively, to Vaughan at mid-on who fumbles it, clownishly, before laughing. "Vaughan is such a clown!" confirms Will

6.4

Sidebottom to Gayle, 1 run, driven off the toes to midwicket, Cook misfielding this time

West Indies 28/1   CH Gayle 24* (21b 2x4 1x6)
7.1

Hoggard to Gayle, FOUR, short, a touch wide, and Gayle flays a four on the top of the bounce off the back foot. Well executed

7.2

Hoggard to Gayle, no run, swishes at one down leg, now

7.3

Hoggard to Gayle, OUT, pitches just outside off, nips in towards middle and traps Gayle, who was going for the heave over midwicket, plumb on the back leg

CH Gayle lbw b Hoggard 28 (33m 24b 3x4 1x6) SR: 116.66

West Indies 32/2   CH Gayle 28 (24b 3x4 1x6)
