West Indies tour of England and Ireland, 2007 / Commentary

The Wisden Trophy - 4th Test

England v West Indies

England won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

Here's Ryan Sidebottom, chugging in with two slips and a gully

50.1

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, and immediately finds some swing into the right-hander who is rapped on the gloves

50.2

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, down the leg side this time though

50.3

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, that's a good one on off stump, Samuels is confidently forward blocking it out

More inswing for the bowler

One of those absurdly short mid-offs comes in

50.4

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, nudged to leg, but Sidebottom prevents the single

50.5

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, swinging into his pads, Samuels blocks it out

50.6

Sidebottom to Samuels, FOUR, Sidebottom angles this across Samuels who cuts it down to third man for a couple. Oh, in fact he'll get four as Strauss dives much too early, the ball beating him to the boundary

End of over 51 (4 runs) West Indies 158/5
MN Samuels    6* (22b 1x4)      RJ Sidebottom    12-5-38-2
S Chanderpaul    59* (113b 9x4)      MJ Hoggard    20-7-41-2

51.1

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, 1 run, Chanderpaul chops this to gully's left who dives but can't prevent the single

A cheery hello to Ed Craig who's just arrived in the press box. These magazine types...pah. What a life.

51.2

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, calmly punched out to cover

Prior's still up to the stumps, incidentally

51.3

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, ooh very well bowled Hoggard, Samuels is squared up here and splices it to point

51.4

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, more away-swing for Hoggard. Samuels is patient and solid in defence

Pietersen's doing up Chanderpaul's laces. No, he is, honestly. And good for him, too, saves the portly umpires from bending down

51.5

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, left alone outside off

It really is very quiet in the crowd today. I think the whole region has one massive hangover on Sundays. In fact, the whole of Britain does, let's be honest...

51.6

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, pushed out to cover

End of over 52 (1 run) West Indies 159/5
MN Samuels    6* (27b 1x4)      MJ Hoggard    21-7-42-2
S Chanderpaul    60* (114b 9x4)      RJ Sidebottom    12-5-38-2

I'd be inclined to unleash Monty for a couple of overs shortly. Monty and Sidebottom in tandem. That's The Word from Willo. There's a sub on the field whose name I've forgotten

52.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, a crunching cut stroke to a wide delivery outside the off stump

52.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, ooh, this cuts off the seam away from the left-hander and bounces markedly on him. Chanderpaul tries to cut it away but is beaten (by the bounce, more than anything else)

52.3

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, but it's fuller this time, and stroked out to cover

52.4

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, lovely bowling, attacking Chanderpaul's off stump, the ball just hinting at swinging away. Firmly blocked out

Just one slip in, by the way, but two gullies

52.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, well left outside off

52.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, FOUR, too wide and comfortably cut down to third man

End of over 53 (8 runs) West Indies 167/5
S Chanderpaul    68* (120b 10x4)      RJ Sidebottom    13-5-46-2
MN Samuels    6* (27b 1x4)      MJ Hoggard    21-7-42-2

This morning reminds me of old-fashioned cricket of a decade ago. Sleepy cricket. Not much happening, not many runs being scored. I quite like it too

53.1

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, Samuels is well back in his crease, blocking this out off the back foot

53.2

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, played late off the back foot - Samuels is waiting, waiting and waiting for the swing

Prior is still up to the stumps

Hoggard has 1 for 7 in 7 overs this morning. That's a bit good

53.3

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, and the indipper this time from Hoggard but Samuels plays it well, nudging to leg

53.4

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, Samuels go for his first extravagant shot of the day, trying to clump this through the covers but he can't time it

53.5

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, great length again from Hoggard - he has given absolutely nothing away today

53.6

Hoggard to Samuels, no run, and he plays and misses at this tempter outside off! Another brilliant over from Hoggard

End of over 54 (maiden) West Indies 167/5
MN Samuels    6* (33b 1x4)      MJ Hoggard    22-8-42-2
S Chanderpaul    68* (120b 10x4)      RJ Sidebottom    13-5-46-2

Ah, Monty's into the attack. That's what we need; some raucous celebrations after every delivery. Short-leg, short midwicket and he's over the wicket to the left-hander

"The sun is trying to force its way through the clouds, everyone will be diving for the factor 15...well, not quite," murmurs Gnasher.

54.1

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, immediately Monty is causing everyone around the bat to shout their heads off to this delivery, which bobbles off Chanderpaul's pads

54.2

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, pushed out to cover and he wants a single. Samuels sends him back

54.3

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, very well played, superb stroke really. Driven, opening the face of the bat, down to third man

Around the wicket to the right-hander

54.4

Panesar to Samuels, no run, fabulous line and length to Samuels who is miles back in his crease, almost eating his stumps, defending off the back foot

Played that very late indeed

54.5

Panesar to Samuels, 2 runs, too short from Monty but what an elegant stroke from Samuels, dabbing it off the back foot down to third man

Touch of Mark Waugh in that stroke

54.6

Panesar to Samuels, no run, defended on the front foot

End of over 55 (3 runs) West Indies 170/5
MN Samuels    8* (36b 1x4)      MS Panesar    3-0-9-0
S Chanderpaul    69* (123b 10x4)      MJ Hoggard    22-8-42-2

Drinks out in the middle; drinks at Cricinfo HQ, too. Jen's into the comm seat. While we're waiting...remember Ceefax? Hello everyone, again.

The umpires seem to be discussing with Pietersen the moment he collected the ball on the boundary edge as he ran back on the field...

55.1

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward on the front foot

55.2

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, on middle, driven back to Hoggard who doesn't collect cleanly but, tinker that he is, pretends to shy what is only a piece of air back to the stumps

I bet Hoggard was what my grandad would refer to as a rum'un when he was at school. Anyone use the phrase "Rum'un"?

55.3

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, defended on the back foot, squaring up to that a touch, but not with alarm

55.4

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, a good area (sing.) again, defended forward

55.5

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, FOUR, on leg stump now, clipped away through midwicket this time, Sidebottom chasing leisurely after it, Sunday-driver style

55.6

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward

End of over 56 (4 runs) West Indies 174/5
S Chanderpaul    73* (129b 11x4)      MJ Hoggard    23-8-46-2
MN Samuels    8* (36b 1x4)      MS Panesar    3-0-9-0

56.1

Panesar to Samuels, no run, defended forward

Vultures around the bat. OK, fielders, but you know what I mean

56.2

Panesar to Samuels, 1 run, pushed out, fairly defensively, square

56.3

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off, a touch of turn and bounce back, defended on the back foot

Chanderpaul looking ruffleless out there. Is that a word? Should be

56.4

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, pushed into short midwicket

56.5

Panesar to Samuels, no run, Panesar pushes him onto the back foot, well his delivery does, bouncing up slightly awkwardly from just outside off

56.6

Panesar to Samuels, no run, defended on the back foot this time

Sidebottom is warming up now, on he comes.

End of over 57 (2 runs) West Indies 176/5
MN Samuels    9* (40b 1x4)      MS Panesar    4-0-11-0
S Chanderpaul    74* (131b 11x4)      MJ Hoggard    23-8-46-2

57.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, naughty nip away from the left hander, who leaves it alone

A wolf whistle comes from the crowd. No, I've no idea who for, either.

57.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, outside off, cut down tidily off the back foot behind point

57.3

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, outside off again, tame defence

57.4

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, oh hello, that one dipped a bit and stayed fairly low after pitching just outside off, Samuels playing late and was almost done there

57.5

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, movement across the right hander again, the angle confusing Samuels here, and he nearly - again - feathers through

Although not with a feather. I'n't language brilliant?

57.6

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, defended forward to round off a probing over

End of over 58 (1 run) West Indies 177/5
MN Samuels    9* (44b 1x4)      RJ Sidebottom    14-5-47-2
S Chanderpaul    75* (133b 11x4)      MS Panesar    4-0-11-0

58.1

Panesar to Chanderpaul, FOUR, steered down to third man off the back foot. A long chase for Hoggard, in vain

58.2

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, lots of flight, and good defending on the front foot

58.3

Panesar to Samuels, no run, flight again, Prior goes for the stumping - 5.7, 5.7, 5.8 for his dive (ah, I love ice skating) - but he's way in

58.4

Panesar to Samuels, no run, more loop, defended well

58.5

Panesar to Samuels, no run, quick hands on the defence

58.6

Panesar to Samuels, no run, defended forward

End of over 59 (5 runs) West Indies 182/5
MN Samuels    9* (48b 1x4)      MS Panesar    5-0-16-0
S Chanderpaul    80* (135b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    14-5-47-2

59.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, driven out straight

59.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, across the right hander, enough room for him to play a well-controlled steer through to third man

59.3

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, outside the off stick again, defended down

Prior's giving it a lot of chirp out there. Not quite on the Nixon scale of annoyability, yet, but getting there

59.4

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, driven into the covers this time

59.5

Sidebottom to Samuels, FOUR, edged through the gap at second slip (they've got a first and a second, don't you know) - but may not have carried, anyway

Sidebottom turns around in disgust

59.6

Sidebottom to Samuels, FOUR, drifted down leg, flicked away very fine to bring up the fifty partnership

That's a handy stand, 50 coming up from 84 balls

End of over 60 (9 runs) West Indies 191/5
MN Samuels    17* (52b 3x4)      RJ Sidebottom    15-5-56-2
S Chanderpaul    81* (137b 12x4)      MS Panesar    5-0-16-0

60.1

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, turned back into the left hander from the rough, good bounce, too, Chanderpaul playing inside it, the ball coming off his thigh pad

60.2

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, defended on the front foot

60.3

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, waited for one which pitches outside off, cuts down off the back foot

60.4

Panesar to Samuels, no run, on middle, turned to gully off the back foot

60.5

Panesar to Samuels, no run, on off, defended forward

60.6

Panesar to Samuels, no run, on middle-and-leg and "Oh!" cries Panesar as it's defended forward

One of our correspondents, Mark "Alan" Partridge went to the world premiere of Shane Warne: The Musical in Adelaide last night. Apparently it was pretty good. A ha. A review will be appearing in due course on your favourite website (insert your own joke here).

End of over 61 (1 run) West Indies 192/5
MN Samuels    17* (55b 3x4)      MS Panesar    6-0-17-0
S Chanderpaul    82* (140b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    15-5-56-2

61.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, on middle, driven out in front of midwicket where Pietersen tiptoes over to do the tidying up

61.2

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, on off, defended into the covers

61.3

Sidebottom to Samuels, 2 runs, driven to the covers for an easy two

61.4

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, pushed across the right hander who shoulders arms as the ball sneaks down the corridor

61.5

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, on off, defended on the back foot

61.6

Sidebottom to Samuels, no run, pushed up there, on off, defended on the back foot and Prior lets out a guttural "Oh, yes!"

End of over 62 (3 runs) West Indies 195/5
MN Samuels    19* (60b 3x4)      RJ Sidebottom    16-5-59-2
S Chanderpaul    83* (141b 12x4)      MS Panesar    6-0-17-0

62.1

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, slow spin, turning back into the left hander a touch. It bobbles out without danger but that doesn't prevent Prior from suggesting someone, with ridiculously long arms presumably, should "Catch it!"

62.2

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, a sweep bobbles up over the vacant leg slip

There's no one at leg slip, it's not like England have a blonde, bubbly airhead standing there

62.3

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, sweep again, this time for just the single

62.4

Panesar to Samuels, no run, defended forward now

62.5

Panesar to Samuels, no run, room outside off and that really should have been a run out. But Chanderpaul, who was mixed up with Samuels there, gets away with it as Pietersen's throw wasn't so good.

Samuels didn't want the single as he worked to gully, Chanderpaul did - it was Samuels's call, though, and Chanderpaul had to scramble back

62.6

Panesar to Samuels, no run, defended forward this time

"Shorn Wayne - Raw Hide," says Christopher Monie. Where do we get you all from? We love you all, really.

Meanwhile, back at the cricket, Gnasher has this for us: "Samuels nearly repeated his trick of running out Brian Lara at the World Cup, by leaving West Indies' leading current batsman stranded...not a good impression to make."

End of over 63 (3 runs) West Indies 198/5
MN Samuels    19* (63b 3x4)      MS Panesar    7-0-20-0
S Chanderpaul    86* (144b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    16-5-59-2

63.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, late bend, played in front of point

63.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, violent swing away, left alone

63.3

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, on leg, worked round to the 45

63.4

Sidebottom to Samuels, OUT, Samuels thought it was going to go across him, but he exposed his leg stump and Sidebottom bowls him around his legs

MN Samuels b Sidebottom 19 (79m 64b 3x4 0x6) SR: 29.68

Or Snidebottom as Mike Atherton has just mistakenly called him. That's hilarious if only for its utter unlikelihood. So, another breakthrough for England, as lunch approaches. A nice cameo from Samuels, though. Ramdin's in now.

63.5

Sidebottom to Ramdin, 1 run, on leg, worked round to the 45

63.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, on off, slight wobble away, defended forward

"Shane Warne: The Musical," says Brendan Vio, "Featuring songs such as "Text her again", "Here's the Googly", and "Ball Out of Hell." Not so far away actually - the songs include "110% Me", "I'm Coming Home", and my favourite "S-M-Mess". Genuinely

End of over 64 (2 runs) West Indies 200/6
S Chanderpaul    87* (148b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    17-5-61-3
D Ramdin    1* (1b)      MS Panesar    7-0-20-0

64.1

Panesar to Ramdin, 1 run, big air, nice high parabola note you, defended forward at the last minute, with a quick tip-and-run manoeuve. Good running

Sky are replaying Sidebottom's wicket - and he points in the air like a rockstar. Well, he's already got the hair.

64.2

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward and Prior shouts "Get on that"

64.3

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, dip and bounce and defended on the back foot

64.4

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 1 run, driven out to mid-on, there's some pressure on Gary Park, the sub fielder, for a run out. He fumbles. Where's Gary Pratt when you need him? (playing minor counties cricket, actually)

64.5

Panesar to Ramdin, no run, defended forward

64.6

Panesar to Ramdin, no run, more defending, again on the front foot

End of over 65 (2 runs) West Indies 202/6
D Ramdin    2* (4b)      MS Panesar    8-0-22-0
S Chanderpaul    88* (151b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    17-5-61-3

65.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, mean swing in the air, left alone

Prior is standing up. I jest not. Sidebottom is bowling in the 80s. (his speed, not the deca-etc)

65.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, driven into the covers for a quick single

65.3

Sidebottom to Ramdin, no run, defended forward

65.4

Sidebottom to Ramdin, 1 run, started on off, swung back into the right hander to middle, but he managed to squeeze the ball with a turn of the bat into midwicket

65.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, outside off, driven firmly out to extra cover, a measured push and he's moved into the 90s now

(in runs-terms, not the deca-etc. Enough - Bad Jokes Ed)

65.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, good fielding from Cook at extra cover

And now it's Collingwood for a change just before lunch.

End of over 66 (4 runs) West Indies 206/6
S Chanderpaul    91* (155b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    18-5-65-3
D Ramdin    3* (6b)      MS Panesar    8-0-22-0

66.1

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, outside off, immediate swing away

66.2

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, a little swing this time, Ramdin goes for the drive, doesn't quite connect

66.3

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, yorker, well trapped with the bat on the toes, just outside off

66.4

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, swing down the channel again, wide enough to leave easily

66.5

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, on off, defended forward

66.6

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, outside off, more swing away

A maiden. Collingwood gets warm applause from his home crowd. That begs the question, though, is applause ever cold?

Should be able to squeeze in one more over before lunch.

End of over 67 (maiden) West Indies 206/6
D Ramdin    3* (12b)      PD Collingwood    3-1-5-0
S Chanderpaul    91* (155b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    18-5-65-3

67.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, inside edge onto the pad, popped up, but didn't linger long enough for Prior to dive forward to grasp at it. So he didn't

67.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off, bend away, pushed to gully where Bell does the honours

67.3

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off, shouldered arms

67.4

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, a single to Cook in the covers

67.5

Sidebottom to Ramdin, FOUR, pitched on off and edged just past a diving Pietersen at third slip

67.6

Sidebottom to Ramdin, no run, defended forward

That's lunch then on a morning where the honours have been shared. Chanderpaul is still there, moving on towards his hundred, but England made further inroads with two wickets. Do join us after the break, when Will be in the chair.

End of over 68 (5 runs) West Indies 211/6
D Ramdin    7* (14b 1x4)      RJ Sidebottom    19-5-70-3
S Chanderpaul    92* (159b 12x4)      PD Collingwood    3-1-5-0

Collingwood to open after lunch. Actually, I might have made that up. No, I haven't - here he comes

Hello all. I'm in the chair. Here come the umpires and the players and everyone, really. David Lloyd reckons it's headed for a draw, this match. What do you think? You are very, very welcome to send us thoughts on other matters, not just the cricket...

68.1

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, on his legs, Chanderpaul knocks it to leg. Prior says "ooh-ehh-aww"

Prior's up to the stumps

68.2

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, a full toss but Ramdin can't make anything of it, clumping it to mid-on

68.3

Collingwood to Ramdin, FOUR, superb shot, driving it on the up through extra cover

That was a gorgeous stroke, placing it to perfection. Begs the question...where is perfection?

68.4

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, well left! The indipper, almost shaving Ramdin's off stump

...as it were

68.5

Collingwood to Ramdin, 2 runs, a touch shorter this time, Ramdin is quick to go back and cut past point

68.6

Collingwood to Ramdin, no run, punched again to mid-on

End of over 69 (7 runs) West Indies 218/6
D Ramdin    13* (19b 2x4)      PD Collingwood    4-1-12-0
S Chanderpaul    93* (160b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    19-5-70-3

69.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 run, down the leg side and Chanderpaul nudges it to midwicket for an easily run single

69.2

Sidebottom to Ramdin, no run, swinging into Ramdin who chops it out to cover

Two slips and a gully

69.3

Sidebottom to Ramdin, no run, ooh well left from Ramdin - Sidebottom slid it across him, tempting him with some width

69.4

Sidebottom to Ramdin, OUT, 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

D Ramdin c Collingwood b Sidebottom 13 (27m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 59.09

Excellent cricket all round from England

Alastair Cook comes into silly point

69.5

Sidebottom to Powell, 1 run, swinging into the new batsman who punches it to Cook's right

69.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off - excellent take from Prior again

End of over 70 (2 runs) West Indies 220/7
S Chanderpaul    94* (162b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    20-5-72-4
DBL Powell    1* (1b)      PD Collingwood    4-1-12-0

Harmison replacing Collingwood

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

That, my friends, was absolutely dreadful cricket from Powell. Chanderpaul is a man of precious few words, but I imagine Powell might receive a few choice expletives from him this evening.

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

Chanderpaul comes down to have a word with Edwards. One ball remaining...

70.6

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

End of over 71 (wicket maiden) West Indies 220/8
FH Edwards    0* (4b)      SJ Harmison    16-1-58-2
S Chanderpaul    94* (162b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    20-5-72-4

71.1

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, punched off the back foot to point

Prior's up to the stumps

71.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, Chanderpaul is itching to work this away to cover but can't time it

71.3

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, lovely bowling this, swinging it away from the left-hander who this time shoulders arms

"England giving Chanderpaul a single with the fielders hanging well back," notes Gnasher.

71.4

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, again, Chanderpaul isn't interested at this wider ball

71.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, terrific cricket all round. A wider ball, and shorter too, Chanderpaul spots it and tries to crack it past the packed field behind square. But Bell fields it expertly and attempts to throw down the stumps, keeping Chanderpaul at the crease

One ball to go, England need to keep him on strike

71.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, fuller this time and it's driven out to cover

And they've done it. Great work from England

End of over 72 (maiden) West Indies 220/8
S Chanderpaul    94* (168b 12x4)      RJ Sidebottom    21-6-72-4
FH Edwards    0* (4b)      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

All attack from Vaughan; four slips, gully, point, mid off, short leg and long leg

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

Aim for the stumps or his body

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

Chanderpaul's back on strike with two balls remaining. Deep backward square leg is in...time for a bouncer?

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

Ouch. On comes the physio. It's his left arm causing concern. The physio's prodding at it (which can't help) and he looks in a lot of discomfort, but I reckon he'll continue. "This would be cruel luck for West Indies if Chanderpaul has a serious problem here," reckons Gnasher. "It gets more painful each time you see a replay."

FH Edwards    1* (8b)      RJ Sidebottom    21-6-72-4

Chanderpaul's going to continue. Well done everyone.

73.1

Sidebottom to Edwards, FOUR, a farmyard scythe from Edwards, attempting to smack that over midwicket but somehow the ball flies over the slips

West Indies are intent on collapsing as soon as possible. "Runs? Runs? No sir. Time for tea and wickets."

73.2

Sidebottom to Edwards, no run, a beauty from Sidebottom which cuts Edwards in half

73.3

Sidebottom to Edwards, no run, uppishly defended just short of mid-on. Good length from Sidebottom

73.4

Sidebottom to Edwards, no run, swinging into Edwards who actually plays it rather well, defending it late

73.5

Sidebottom to Edwards, OUT, 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

FH Edwards b Sidebottom 5 (20m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Poor old Chanderpaul. He only needs two for his hundred and in comes Corey Collymore, an old fashioned No. 11. A genuine tailender. This could be short, but fun.

And that's Sidebottom's first five-wicket haul in Tests. Richly deserved too.

73.6

Sidebottom to Collymore, 2 runs, nearly! Another quick inswinger which Collymore inside-edges past short-leg

End of over 74 (6 runs) West Indies 231/9
CD Collymore    2* (1b)      RJ Sidebottom    22-6-78-5
S Chanderpaul    98* (170b 13x4)      SJ Harmison    17-1-63-2

Come on Shivarine. I think everyone at Chester-le-Street, be they England or West Indies fans, want Chanderpaul to get this hundred

74.1

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

History may repeat itself here. Chanderpaul was stranded on 97 not out against India last year - and Collymore was the last man with him that time, too.

74.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, excellent line on middle stump. Chanderpaul again leaves it alone

74.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, another good one on leg stump this time, the batsman knocking it away

Now then, when will he get off strike?

74.4

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

So close. So very close indeed. This is great cricket. Two balls left in the over

74.5

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

Vaughan's marshalling his field to try and stop the 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

His 16th hundred

End of over 75 (4 runs) West Indies 235/9
S Chanderpaul    102* (176b 14x4)      SJ Harmison    18-1-67-2
CD Collymore    2* (1b)      RJ Sidebottom    22-6-78-5

75.1

Sidebottom to Collymore, 2 runs, swinging into Collymore who chips it, fortuitously, over short-leg for a couple. They're coming back for the third and this could be disaster...but Collymore rightly stays put

75.2

Sidebottom to Collymore, no run, squeezed out to point

75.3

Sidebottom to Collymore, 1 run, ooh again he flicks it behind square to fine-leg. Wrong line from Sidebottom on leg stump

75.4

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, pushed out to mid-off

"Reading the commentary," types Ragu in capital letters before we make it reader friendly, "Chanderpaul's batting reminds me of another great West Indian run accumulator - Larry Gomes. Does the commentary team see any similarities?" We would love to, but we're both in our twenties. Jenno was four when he last played in England (ie our last opportunity to see him as overseas tours weren't televised back in the day), and I was two. I remember gurgling, "Well batted," though. I was a very cute baby. Prospective single ladies who would like to see a photo, get in contact

75.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, FOUR, very nicely timed indeed, elegantly driven on the front foot out to extra cover

75.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, 1 leg bye, swinging into Chanderpaul but it's the wrong line, and it bobbles off his pads

End of over 76 (8 runs) West Indies 243/9
S Chanderpaul    106* (179b 15x4)      RJ Sidebottom    23-6-85-5
CD Collymore    5* (4b)      SJ Harmison    18-1-67-2

Harmison is around the wicket

"We have a very good weather here in Hungary," gloats Daniel. Not sure what I can add to that, but well done anyway.

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

"Shiv was also stranded on 97* at Lord's (second innings) in 2004," notes Sally No-Surname in Australia. "He had got 128* in the first innings, too." Indeed he was.

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

Harmison owes Prior many pints. Many, many pints

76.4

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

"The crowd tries to start a Mexican wave...and with some success," Gnasher says before chirping "my goodness! It could almost be summer here now. There is blueness in the sky!"

76.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run

76.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off

End of over 77 (4 runs) West Indies 247/9
S Chanderpaul    110* (185b 16x4)      SJ Harmison    19-1-71-2
CD Collymore    5* (4b)      RJ Sidebottom    23-6-85-5

77.1

Sidebottom to Collymore, no run, angling across Collymore who tried to get bat on it but, frankly, he hasn't got a hope. The ball's boomeranging around like a...boomerang

77.2

Sidebottom to Collymore, no run, ooh, nearly bowled him. Somehow Collymore gets bat on it, inside edging it through his legs I think

77.3

Sidebottom to Collymore, no run, on off stump, again swinging into Collymore who drives quite cleanly - but Sidebottom does very well, diving athletically to his right to prevent a single

Superb work

77.4

Sidebottom to Collymore, no run, nudged around the corner. Collymore almost loses his footing

77.5

Sidebottom to Collymore, 2 runs, clipped in the air just over Bell's head at leg gully

77.6

Sidebottom to Collymore, no run, half a shout for lbw but it's drifting down leg

Hurrah! Drinks. Here's the ever splendid Jenno. Where? Oh, hello, 'tis I. Thanks the Willo. The new ball be due in two overs.

End of over 78 (2 runs) West Indies 249/9

S Chanderpaul    110* (185b 16x4)      SJ Harmison    19-1-71-2

78.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, angled across the left hander, that one offering steepling bounce past the shoulder

78.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, clipped off the toes, easily, behind square

78.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward

"I've been working out how to pronounce his name," says Nasser Hussain. "Chander- or Chandra-? I will ask him tonight." Mikey Holding confirms that the man himself says "Shandra". So now you know.

78.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, defended again on the front foot

78.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone down the channel, tight bowling, this

78.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, slower ball, left alone

Imran Khan, West Indies media manager (hello Imran!), says it's actually pronounced as it's spelt - Chanderpaul.

Back at the cricket, Sidebottom to continue

End of over 79 (maiden) West Indies 249/9

CD Collymore    7* (10b)      RJ Sidebottom    24-6-87-5

79.1

Sidebottom to Collymore, 1 run, poked forward for a quick single - and that's the 250

New ball due at the end of this over

79.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, bend away from the left hander

79.3

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, tighter, squeezed out a defensive on the front foot

79.4

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, slower delivery, but wide enough to leave. Left

79.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, fuller delivery, straighter too, and swish-defended towards short mid-on

79.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, driven forward - "Get on that," commands Piror as Sidebottom slides over, clutching his inside thigh and slipping as the ball went past his outstretched palm

Sidebottom is vaguely hobbling, but looks OK. The new ball is now due. But it's not been taken.

End of over 80 (1 run) West Indies 250/9

80.1

Harmison to Collymore, no run, bouncer, ducked under

An unimpressed Collymore stares through his helmet at the back of Harmison's head

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

Field for Collymore: two slips, fourth slip, gully, cover, mid off, mid on, short leg, long leg

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

Hoggard back into the attack as the sun comes out to kiss his golden locks.

End of over 81 (maiden) West Indies 250/9

81.1

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, swing back into the left hander - starts on off and deviates towards leg, and is helped square in the end by a neat flick

81.2

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, on leg, driven out square to Pietersen

Chanderpaul, mindful perhaps of the last Test where he exposed the tail as victory was becoming more possible, is turning down the singles here

81.3

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, 4 byes, drifted across him - very wide - and was left. Prior parried the ball, two-handed, down to third man

81.4

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, driven on the back foot to wide mid-on

81.5

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, slower delivery, on leg, picked, driven to mid-on.

I, like, commas,

81.6

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, FOUR, outside off, wide, and crunched with a lovely cut square of he wicket and my how it flies

End of over 82 (8 runs) West Indies 258/9

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

The new ball has been taken.

Mr Ed Craig has written in again, deputy editor of The Wisden Cricketer and a bally fine colleague of ours, writes: "You two really should have spent more of your youth watching videos of old cricketers rather than behaving badly. Chanderpaul is an exaggerated version of Gomes. Gomes had fewer quirks in his pre-shot moment, but did shovel it through the offside regularly for runs." There's more - at the end of this over.

End of over 83 (maiden) West Indies 258/9
CD Collymore    8* (23b)      SJ Harmison    22-4-71-2
S Chanderpaul    114* (202b 17x4)      MJ Hoggard    24-8-50-2

83.1

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, full delivery, yorker in fact, snuffed out

83.2

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward on the front foot

83.3

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward

83.4

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, FOUR, along the ground through third man

83.5

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off

83.6

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, defended on the back foot, stunning the bounce

Ed continues: "In 1984, Gomes played an enormously contrasting innings to Gordon Greenidge's savage double-hundred at Lord's. Like Chanderpaul, he was as hard to remove as a grass stain on a pair of whites and never hit the ball in the air. He also had fantastic big hair, which was much more exciting than his batting." Which is fine. But Ed is, at least he claims to be, only 29.

84.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, pushed through the line outside off

84.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone down the channel

Harmison's bowling quite consistently here, it must be said, so I have

84.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, a touch wide down off this time

Someone, Dave in fact, is actually old enough to remember Larry Gomes. "They were both West Indian left handers and both were harder to get out than a drunk at closing time."

85.1

Hoggard to Collymore, 1 run, worked out to the cover boundary off the back foot, chased down just inside the rope

85.2

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, slower ball, driven to wide mid-on, Pietersen with the return

85.3

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, didn't get hold of the drive to mid-off

85.4

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, no run, driven to mid-on this time, picks out the fielder

85.5

Hoggard to Chanderpaul, 3 runs, driven out off the front foot in front of square, Pietersen with the slide and throw

85.6

Hoggard to Collymore, no run, defended forward

Scott Andrawartha wants to know "Is Shiv Chanderpaul still wearing his sun-shield, cheek-placed, eye-protector things, even in the relatively dreary English conditions?" Yes he is. And you call them dreary, Scott, but the sun came out for nearly a whole minute earlier. So there. The eye patches are indeed supposed to deflect the sun glare - but for some unknown reason haven't caught on with the team. Why could that be? Either way, Chanderpaul's sponsors are getting their money's worth this series - he's hit at least fifty every innings.

86.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, up there, defended on the front foot

Here's Andrew McGlashan. "It's the first time Collymore has reached double figures in a Test innings since he made 10, against England at Old Trafford in 2004, 16 Tests ago." Thanks, Gnasher.

86.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, more of the front-foot defensive stuff

86.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, driven out in front of midwicket - inevitable cheers for Panesar's fielding

This stand is now worth 42. Good batting

86.5

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

87.1

Panesar to Collymore, no run, driven back to the bowler, who picks it up without fuss

87.2

Panesar to Collymore, no run, oh, couldn't have done much more, then. Flight, and turn away from the right hander at the last minute, somehow that missed his outside edge - and also veered way past the stumps

87.3

Panesar to Collymore, no run, right up there, dug out with some last-millisecond defence

87.4

Panesar to Collymore, no run, huge turn away from the right hander, dying on the pitch, too

87.5

Panesar to Collymore, no run, defended forward on the front foot

87.6

Panesar to Collymore, 2 leg byes, outside off, a very fine sweep which just brushed the pad bring up the leg-byes

Bov notes: "I'm not so sure Chanderpaul's sponsors are getting great value - I can't actually read who they are." Good point, Bov.

Panesar to Collymore, 1 run, on leg, loop, an outside-edged single runs down to third man

89.2

And that's the fifty partnership

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, more forward defence

89.5

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off, turns back into the left hander who defends forward

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off once more, defended on the back foot this time

Here's Gnasher. "Andrew Strauss, out of form and needing runs, won't be enjoying this final-wicket stand as he thinks about opening the batting." Bless him.

Sidebottom back into the attack.

West Indies' No.10 and No.11 - Edwards and Collymore - are both using the bat that won The Wisden Cricketer's Bat of the Year Award 2007, made by Charlie French - an independent bat-maker in Nottingham. "They are wasted on the lower-order," observes Ed Craig in the press box. Collymore does have a Test average of 7.00, but seems to making a damn fine fist of things, here.

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, defended forward, and Prior wants someone to "Getonthat"

91.2

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, "Catch it, pal," is the unlikely suggestion this time as it pops into space

91.3

Panesar to Chanderpaul, no run, goes behind the stumps this time

91.4

Panesar to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, waits for the turn onto leg, and dinks it down to Pietersen at the appropriately-named long leg

92.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, on off - consistent again - but once more Chanderpaul merely presses a defence

92.6

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off this time and Prior takes a rap on the thumb in just not catching it

"Can Chanderpaul hold on long enough for Collymore to score his topscore 17?" deadpans Junior Browne. In fairness, Chanderpaul looks so immoveable he could probably hold out for Collymore's 117, if Mr Collymore was so inclined

94.3

Sidebottom picks up the ball, he looks a bit angry, and thinks of throwing it towards the striker's end

94.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off, defended down again

CD Collymore    11* (46b)      MS Panesar    12-2-32-0

95.1

Panesar to Collymore, no run, on leg, shuffled to leg gully

95.2

Panesar to Collymore, 2 runs, big swish, over the top - and safe! Gone right over the circle to the deep covers: he was aiming straighter, but nevermind, he picks up two

95.3

Panesar to Collymore, no run, beaten outside off this time, offering his bat face just inside the line

95.4

Panesar to Collymore, no run, defended forward now

95.5

Panesar to Collymore, no run, an inside edge pops on to the pad and up short of Cook at short leg

95.6

Panesar to Collymore, no run, too good for Collymore, beating him again outside off

An air of frustration in the England camp right now

End of over 96 (2 runs) West Indies 287/9
CD Collymore    13* (52b)      MS Panesar    13-2-34-0
S Chanderpaul    136* (251b 18x4 1x6)      RJ Sidebottom    28-9-88-5

96.2

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, on off, defended forward in another trapping way

96.3

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, a hint of swing again, down the channel

A good area from Sidebottom here, but nothing doing wicket-wise

96.4

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, straighter, forcing Chanderpaul to play defensively, so he does

96.5

Sidebottom to Chanderpaul, no run, right up there, defended forward

96.6

End of over 97 (maiden) West Indies 287/9
S Chanderpaul    136* (257b 18x4 1x6)      RJ Sidebottom    29-10-88-5
CD Collymore    13* (52b)      MS Panesar    13-2-34-0

97.1

Panesar to Collymore, OUT, on off-and-middle and would have hit middle two-thirds the way up

CD Collymore lbw b Panesar 13 (103m 53b 0x4 0x6) SR: 24.52

It's all over. Collymore goes for 13, just shy of his top score of 16. Great innings from Chanderpaul, once again their highest scorer. A useful contribution, too, from Bravo, with 44. And well done Sidebottom, who got his first five-for in Tests.
