The Wisden Trophy - 4th Test

England v West Indies

England won by 7 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.1

Sidebottom to Ganga, OUT, 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

D Ganga c Cook b Sidebottom 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 0/1   CH Gayle 0* (0b)   RJ Sidebottom 0.1-0-0-1

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   DS Smith 3* (20b)   MJ Hoggard 3.3-0-13-1

8.4

Sidebottom to Smith, OUT, an error of judgement there from Smith, who simply left the ball as it cut back in from off and takes the off stump

DS Smith b Sidebottom 4 (38m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

West Indies 34/3   RS Morton 1* (1b)   RJ Sidebottom 4.4-2-18-2

8.4

Sidebottom to Smith, OUT, ooh and again he flashes at this, high over the slips but that could have gone anywhere

DS Smith b Sidebottom 4 (38m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

West Indies 34/3   RS Morton 1* (1b)   RJ Sidebottom 4.4-2-18-2

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   S Chanderpaul 16* (27b 3x4)   SJ Harmison 2-0-8-1

45.6

Hoggard to Bravo, OUT, and the pressure gets to him! A touch shorter from Hoggard, Bravo tries to pull it extravagantly but drags it onto his stumps

DJ Bravo b Hoggard 44 (124m 97b 6x4 0x6) SR: 45.36

West Indies 141/5   S Chanderpaul 52* (105b 8x4)   MJ Hoggard 18-6-40-2

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

West Indies 199/6   S Chanderpaul 87* (147b 12x4)   RJ Sidebottom 16.4-5-60-3

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

West Indies 219/7   S Chanderpaul 94* (161b 12x4)   RJ Sidebottom 19.4-5-71-4

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

West Indies 220/8   S Chanderpaul 94* (162b 12x4)   SJ Harmison 15.2-0-58-2

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

West Indies 229/9   S Chanderpaul 98* (170b 13x4)   RJ Sidebottom 21.5-6-76-5

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

West Indies 287/10   S Chanderpaul 136* (257b 18x4 1x6)   MS Panesar 13.1-2-34-1
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
