NatWest Series [West Indies in England] - 2nd ODI

England v West Indies

England won by 6 wickets (with 84 balls remaining)

1.6

Broad to Simmons, OUT, he fires it straight and quick, Simmons gets right across his stumps to work it to the on side but he's beaten for pace, the ball catches him plumb in front of middle and off

LMP Simmons lbw b Broad 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 2/1   CH Gayle 2* (8b)   SCJ Broad 1-0-1-1

3.2

Broad to Sarwan, OUT, Broad's in the act again, he hits a good length outside off and gives Sarwan just a hint of width to go for the off-side punch, he obliges but manages a thin outside edge to the keeper, easy decision for umpire Asoka de Silva

RR Sarwan c †Prior b Broad 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 7/2   CH Gayle 2* (14b)   SCJ Broad 1.2-0-1-2

9.2

Swann to Gayle, OUT, timber! Swann isn't afraid to toss it up but this time he puts a lot more pace on the ball, Gayle tries to repeat the loft over long-on but plays all around it and the ball clips the pad slightly and crashes onto the stumps

CH Gayle b Swann 31 (28b 3x4 2x6) SR: 110.71

West Indies 44/3   S Chanderpaul 6* (22b 1x4)   GP Swann 0.2-0-6-1

22.2

Bresnan to Chanderpaul, OUT, and West Indies lose a wicket against the run of play, Chanderpaul goes for an ambitious pull off a delivery which wasn't that short, the top edge swirls in the air for a while and lands safely in Strauss's palms at short third man

S Chanderpaul c Strauss b Bresnan 27 (59b 3x4 0x6) SR: 45.76

West Indies 107/4   DJ Bravo 37* (41b 4x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 3.2-0-14-1

27.3

Collingwood to Bravo, OUT, through the gate! He takes a bit of pace off the ball and gets it to nip back in slightly off the pitch, Bravo leaves a big gap between bat and pad on the drive and the ball crashes on to the off and middle stumps

DJ Bravo b Collingwood 50 (58b 6x4 1x6) SR: 86.20

West Indies 128/5   D Ramdin 7* (14b 1x4)   PD Collingwood 0.3-0-1-1

29.3

Collingwood to Ramdin, OUT, he lands it on middle and leg and the ball goes through with the line, Ramdin is trapped at the crease and expects it to bounce a lot more but the ball skids through and traps him right in front, easy one for de Silva

D Ramdin lbw b Collingwood 8 (21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.09

West Indies 131/6   KA Pollard 2* (5b)   PD Collingwood 1.3-0-2-2

30.4

Swann to Taylor, OUT, it gets worse for the West Indies, Taylor gets forward and pushes it inside out to short mid-off and sets off for a run which was never there, Strauss fires the throw to the keeper and Taylor turns around in desperation and he's a long way out

JE Taylor run out 1 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

West Indies 134/7   KA Pollard 3* (6b)   GP Swann 6.4-0-20-1

35.1

Collingwood to Pollard, OUT, I tell you for a few seconds I thought I was looking at an old replay! Collingwood fires it full and on the stumps and Pollard has a wild and blind swing at it, misses it completely and the stumps are disturbed, the drinks break has halted West Indies' ambitions of a recovery

KA Pollard b Collingwood 8 (19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.10

West Indies 150/8   DJG Sammy 11* (14b 2x4)   PD Collingwood 4.1-0-11-3

36.3

Broad to Benn, OUT, Benn goes hell for leather, he shapes to whack it over the on side but mishits it to midwicket, Bopara runs across and falls on the practice pitch as he takes the catch

SJ Benn c Bopara b Broad 1 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

West Indies 153/9   DJG Sammy 13* (16b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 7.3-1-42-3

38.3

Broad to Rampaul, OUT, he expectedly bangs it in short and Rampaul for the second ball in succession takes his eye off and doesn't evade it properly, the ball lobs off his glove and goes to Swann at slip, umpire Hartley raises the finger

R Rampaul c Swann b Broad 7 (9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

West Indies 160/10   DJG Sammy 13* (19b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 8.3-1-46-4
