  • Overs 1-50

14.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, ooh and a great start, ripping up onto Chanderpaul's chest who plays it down to short-leg

14.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, Chanderpaul uses the pace on this, back-cutting it for four

14.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, another terrible leg-side drifter which Strauss clips off his pads

14.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, ooh Chanderpaul nearly gets into a right old muddle here, but leaves this leg-side drifter well alone. Well done everyone

14.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, rubbish delivery down the leg side

14.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, a much better delivery on off stump rising onto Chanderpaul who nudges to leg. Short-leg is lurking

14.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, very well bowled, cutting this back into Chanderpaul who is beaten for pace and rapped on the pads

West Indies 48/3   SJ Harmison 1-0-4-0
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   SJ Harmison 2-0-8-1
18.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, pushed to cover

18.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, ah, a very good stroke indeed. Too short from Harmison, and it barely got up to hip height, Chanderpaul rocks back and pulls it hard in front of square

18.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, on leg stump, Chanderpaul nudges it back to the bowler

18.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, nudged off his pads down to fine leg. Terrible ball

18.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, wide enough of the left-hander's off stump for him to leave well alone

18.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, very good ball this time though, on off stump and Chanderpaul blocks it out

West Indies 66/4   SJ Harmison 3-0-16-1
20.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, on leg, Chanderpaul brings his hands down to carve in front of square

20.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, down leg, a good ball to a right hander, which Chanderpaul isn't

20.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, good delivery, Harmison likes it, with a throaty appeal that's dismissed with a shake. The ball dipped in to Chanderpaul who can't get bat on it - but it pitched outside leg to begin with, ending any chance then

20.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, driven out through cover, a great shot, full control, waiting for the ball and leaning into it

20.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, defended watchfully on the back foot, the ball rising up from a good length

20.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, another sharp delivery, this one climbing over the shoulder outside off, well left

West Indies 70/4   SJ Harmison 4-0-20-1
22.1

Harmison to Bravo, no run, great delivery, on a good length, rising outside off, does Bravo all ends up - squaring him and he's lucky not to feather through

22.2

Harmison to Bravo, no run, vicious Terrier-like nip back into the righthander but it started from wide enough to be left and the ball shuffles through, under the bat, to Prior

22.3

Harmison to Bravo, no run, another good delivery, similar to the first this over. Neat bowling

22.4

Harmison to Bravo, no run, on off, in the air for a while in front of square, but into space

22.5

Harmison to Bravo, no run, backs away on the back foot, thinking of flicking a cut through point. Misses out

22.6

Harmison to Bravo, 1 run, driven off the back foot to mid-on

West Indies 72/4   SJ Harmison 5-0-21-1
24.1

Harmison to Bravo, no run, down the channel, swing away, left alone

24.2

Harmison to Bravo, no run, left alone outside off again, jumping and trying to jab back down on it

24.3

Harmison to Bravo, no run, just on off, Bravo defending strongly

24.4

Harmison to Bravo, no run, oh, close - Cook puts one down at short leg as the ball hits his boot and he just can't cling onto the instant rebound. A sharp chance

24.5

Harmison to Bravo, no run, left alone down off

24.6

Harmison to Bravo, 2 runs, driven without much power off the back foot to long-off

West Indies 75/4   SJ Harmison 6-0-23-1
26.1

Harmison to Bravo, no run, a late-rising delivery, defended down on the back foot

26.2

Harmison to Bravo, no run, bent down leg, left alone down there

26.3

Harmison to Bravo, no run, good line, just outside off, bending back into the right hander who stands firm to punch down a defensive shot

26.4

Harmison to Bravo, FOUR, a hook didn't quite go where he was expecting - which was square - instead it went forward through long-on; he didn't get hold of that short one properly

26.5

Harmison to Bravo, no run, rising delivery, snorting past the nose, as Bravo sways away

26.6

Harmison to Bravo, no run, right on a good length and line, defended into short midwicket - they set off, but get back as Harmison throws from a sitting position towards the striker's end

West Indies 81/4   SJ Harmison 7-0-27-1
34.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, a cracking ball, cutting away from Chanderpaul's crab-like prod. Kept low, too

34.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, nudged off his legs

34.3

Harmison to Bravo, no run, firmly defended on the front foot

34.4

Harmison to Bravo, 1 run, a cautious drive on the front foot - a check-drive if anything - out to cover

34.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, a reasonable appeal from Harmison, rapping Chanderpaul on the pad...but that, surely, is the ultimate epitome of optimism

34.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, the wrong line, on his legs, Chanderpaul nudges to leg

West Indies 105/4   SJ Harmison 8-0-29-1
36.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, a full toss which Chanderpaul comes forward to, driving it to cover

36.2

Harmison to Bravo, no run, left alone outside off

36.3

Harmison to Bravo, no run, that's a cracker! He draws Bravo into an expansive drive, but he doesn't move his feet quick enough; it's a walking drive, if anything, and it booms past his bat, Prior taking it at head height

36.4

Harmison to Bravo, 3 runs, fabulous straight drive down the ground which nearly cleans up Billy Bowden

36.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, short and wide of the leg stump. Rubbish

36.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, defended off the back foot

West Indies 113/4   SJ Harmison 9-0-33-1
38.1

Harmison to Bravo, FOUR, a filthy bouncer which Bravo hooks, with Caribbean gusto, just behind square

38.2

Harmison to Bravo, no run, ooh and again Bravo goes for an audacious hook but it's not short enough, and certainly too wide of the off stump. He misses

38.3

Harmison to Bravo, FOUR, very neatly played, guiding this down to third man

38.4

Harmison to Bravo, no run, a huge step down the pitch from Bravo, shouldering arms to this indipper

38.5

Harmison to Bravo, 1 run, simply far too short. Bravo knocks it to leg for a single, as easy as pie

38.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, spearing down the leg side

West Indies 123/4   SJ Harmison 10-0-42-1
40.1

Harmison to Bravo, FOUR, beautiful stroke, driving it on the up through extra cover

40.2

Harmison to Bravo, no run, ooh and he plays and misses outside off. Excellent delivery, just cutting away from Bravo at the last moment

40.3

Harmison to Bravo, no run, too wide this time. Bravo leaves it alone with ease

40.4

Harmison to Bravo, no run, Harmison tears up to the crease this time, but Bravo leaves it well alone

40.5

Harmison to Bravo, no run, a good start to the day, if not the over, outside Bravo's off stump. It riles up on him and he leaves it alone

40.6

Harmison to Bravo, 1 run, a confident flick from Bravo off his pads to deep square leg

West Indies 133/4   SJ Harmison 11-0-47-1
42.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, it's another beauty down the leg side from Harmison. Chanderpaul leaves it alone

42.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, better line this time, Chanderpaul comes forward on off stump to work it to leg

42.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, good ball on middle-and-off, Chanderpaul comes tentatively forward to defend

42.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, lovely delivery this time, short of a length and bouncing on Chanderpaul who defends off the back foot, taking his bottom hand off the bat

42.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, down the leg side, Chanderpaul nurdles it for a single

42.6

Harmison to Bravo, no run, wide of the off stump, Bravo leaves it

West Indies 134/4   SJ Harmison 12-0-48-1
44.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, quite full, Chanderpaul nudges it to leg off the toe-end of the bat

44.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, that's a brute, a really nasty one on off stump which straightens off the pitch, bouncing on Chanderpaul who gets into a tangle in trying to defend.

44.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, pushed off his pads to the aforementioned short-leg. It's Alastair Cook under the helmet, who took a great catch in the same position yesterday to dismiss Daren Ganga. First ball of the match, too

44.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, a neat prod - nothing more than a prod down the ground

44.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, pushed out to cover, but Monty's lurking there like a cheetah. You know what they say about Monty, don't you?

44.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, a bouncer which Chanderpaul ducks underneath with style

West Indies 141/4   SJ Harmison 13-0-50-1
46.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, another excellent stroke from Chanderpaul, taking advantage of this leg-stump delivery from Harmison and calmly stroking it out through midwicket

46.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, stroked through cover

46.3

Harmison to Samuels, no run, well bowled. In the channel, Samuels fishes at it but misses

46.4

Harmison to Samuels, no run, beaten for pace here I think as Samuels tries to nudge it to leg but it bobbles off his pad

46.5

Harmison to Samuels, no run, wild and woolly, like a rebellious sheep on the mountain, down the leg side

46.6

Harmison to Samuels, 1 run, punched on the front foot to cover to get off the mark

West Indies 145/5   SJ Harmison 14-0-54-1
48.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, for a moment I thought this had crept through, but in the end it was a filthy full toss which Chanderpaul dug out with that enormous spade of his

48.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, Chanderpaul jumps up to defend this off the back foot

48.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 4 leg byes, oh, dear. It's down the leg side, wobbles off Chanderpaul's pads and Prior - for once - can't stop it

48.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, another cracking delivery miles down the leg side which Chanderpaul picks off for four down to fine-leg

48.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, an innocuous bouncer which comes down with a sprinkling of snow on it

48.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, another pointless short ball outside the off stump

West Indies 153/5   SJ Harmison 15-0-58-1
70.1

Harmison to Powell, no run, Powell goes for an outrageous pull and pulls it straight into Bell's foot at short-leg. Ouch. Well fielded that man

70.2

Harmison to Powell, OUT, 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

DBL Powell c †Prior b Harmison 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

70.3

Harmison to Edwards, no run, fast, straight and fiery outside the off stump. Prior takes it at face height

70.4

Harmison to Edwards, no run, a little too short and wide. Edwards sways out of the way

70.5

Harmison to Edwards, no run, that's a much better length, Edwards lured into driving and he plays and misses

70.6

Harmison to Edwards, no run, wild and woolly down the leg side. Prior dives to his left and takes it smartly

West Indies 220/8   SJ Harmison 16-1-58-2
72.1

Harmison to Edwards, no run, short - too short, to be frank - and Edwards leaves it alone fairly comfortably

72.2

Harmison to Edwards, no run, ooh, Edwards pulls his bat inside the line - ala Jack Russell

72.3

Harmison to Edwards, no run, ever so slightly fuller but - once again, and I'm running out of hair to pull - it's too wide

72.4

Harmison to Edwards, 1 run, and he does aim for the stumps, Edwards plays it far too early and scoops it in the air, the ball falling just short of cover

72.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, no, it's full and wide and Chanderpaul slashes it uncharacteristically over the slips. He threw everything at that, and it zooms down to third man for four

72.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, very nasty indeed. Harmison finds one to spit up at Chanderpaul who is taken by surprise, the ball smacking into his forearm. He immediately drops his bat and says a few choice words, to the effect that he might be in a bit of pain

West Indies 225/8   SJ Harmison 17-1-63-2
74.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, angling across him, he hides the bat behind his pad

74.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, ooh, lovely ball just leaving Chanderpaul at the last moment. He drives and misses

74.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, rocks back and punches it to point...but not for a single

74.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, and he's cut him for four to bring up a brilliant hundred! What a fantastic shot from a gifted and tenacious cricketer. Chanderpaul gives the pitch a kiss, receives a handshake from Collymore and applause from his team-mates on the balcony

West Indies 235/9   SJ Harmison 18-1-67-2
76.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, flicked off his pads down to fine-leg, but Chanderpaul refuses to take the single

76.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, another magical delivery fired several feet down the leg side

76.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, more Deliveries from the Wild from Harmison. Prior makes a brilliant stop diving to his right, one-handed

76.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, Get out the flags and light those candles - it's a straight delivery

76.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run

80.2

Harmison to Collymore, no run, left alone outside off this time

80.3

Harmison to Collymore, no run, really nice delivery outside off, nice shape and length. Left alone, mind

80.4

Harmison to Collymore, no run, too good - climbing past the outside edge on the back foot - but still not close enough to take the edge

80.5

Harmison to Collymore, no run, straighter now, nagging length, but defends solidly enough on the front foot

80.6

Harmison to Collymore, no run, chases at one outside off

82.1

Harmison to Collymore, no run, outside off, left alone

82.2

Harmison to Collymore, no run, left alone outside off. He was on the back foot, too

82.3

Harmison to Collymore, no run, cul-de-sac-like curve on that one, but Collymore's late with his prod outside off - luckily enough for him, as it happens

82.4

Harmison to Collymore, no run, on a good length outside off, sharp bounce

82.5

Harmison to Collymore, no run, more of that sharp bounce, threatening to be awkward, but well dealt with via the leave

82.6

Harmison to Collymore, no run, played inside the line - and the movements were deliberate enough to suggest the thinking was to do that

West Indies 258/9   SJ Harmison 22-4-71-2
84.1

Harmison to Collymore, no run, forced on to the back foot, down to gully
