Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

52.1

Simmons to Bopara, no run, and he very nearly gets a wicket with his first ball - a horrid attempt at a slap to a wide, swinging delivery

52.2

Simmons to Bopara, no run, again, very wide of the off stump

52.3

Simmons to Bopara, no run, another horribly wide ball

52.4

52.5

Simmons to Prior, no run, well wide and left alone

52.6

Simmons to Prior, 1 wide, oh dear - another wide, and rightly wided. That barely hit the cut strip

Simmons to Prior, no run, guided out to point

54.2

Simmons to Prior, no run, Prior shuffles back into position and watches this go by

54.3

Simmons to Prior, no run, shot - but well stopped! Prior fairly hammered but cover-point dived brilliantly to his right to prevent four. And two. And three. And a single

54.4

Simmons to Prior, no run, cut out to the off side

54.5

Simmons to Prior, no run, inswinger but the wrong line, and Ramdin is forced into a dive. And does well

56.4

Simmons to Bopara, 1 run, ooh, uppishly driven - he was a bit too early on that. But ... it falls safely

Simmons to Prior, no run, defended on the front foot

England 179/4   LMP Simmons 3-1-12-0

59.1

Simmons to Bopara, no run, short, wide and hammered by Bopara but straight to Gayle at short cover...the captain felt that one

59.2

Simmons to Bopara, no run, poor shot from Bopara, he tries to pull a ball that is very wide of off stump...he just needs to keep his concentration here

59.3

Simmons to Bopara, FOUR, neatly flicked off leg stump, Bopara turns his wrists and sends it very fine past the wicketkeeper

59.4

Simmons to Bopara, 2 runs, swings into the pads again, turned squarer this time and there's time for two before Edwards does the fielding

59.5

Simmons to Bopara, no run, outside off and left alone

59.6

Simmons to Bopara, no run, wide of the stumps again, Bopara just watches it go by

61.4

Simmons to Broad, 1 wide, even wider and called this time by umpire Davis

61.4

Simmons to Broad, no run, tries to correct his line but goes the leg side, this is a waste to the new batsman

61.5

Simmons to Broad, FOUR, lovely shot by Broad, forces with super timing off the back foot through cover and it beats the fielders to the boundary...that was a shot of a top-order batsman

61.6

Simmons to Broad, 1 wide, another wide from Simmons brings up England's 200...filth from Simmons

61.6

Simmons to Broad, no run, closer to off stump but left again
