  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle c †Read b Harmison 62 104 81 12 1 76.54
24.4 the end of a very entertaining knock - Harmison has him playing at a ball outside off stump, regulation outside edge safely taken by Chris Read 100/1
View dismissal DS Smith lbw b Harmison 35 114 71 7 0 49.29
26.1 walks across the stumps a bit, pitches leg stump, hits middle, barring the fact Smith has a pad in the way, playing a rather nothing shot. Harmison definitely liking bowling from this end. 110/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Flintoff b Harmison 21 60 30 4 0 70.00
36.6 rather like taking candy from a baby. Fences outside off stump at a ball that moves away slightly, and the big man watches it all the way into his hands at second slip 143/6
View dismissal BC Lara* c Giles b Harmison 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
26.5 Steve Harmison is having a bit of a magical spell just at present. Dug in short, off the shoulder of the bat via teh helmet to the birthday boy, Giles, who makes a little bit of a production number of the catch before he finally hangs on. 110/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Read b Jones 2 11 13 0 0 15.38
29.4 horrible shot and he pays the price! short delivery wide outside the off stump, Chanderpaul needlessly pokes at it and gets a thick edge, Read makes no mistake, Jones gets his man 113/4
View dismissal DR Smith c Hussain b Harmison 16 28 22 2 1 72.72
36.1 at least he died with his boots on, as the saying goes. Short, pulls, goes almost straight up in the air and down Hussain's throat at square leg. I think Harmison can claim the moral victory there. 142/5
View dismissal RD Jacobs run out (Giles/†Read) 40 95 64 4 0 62.50
56.2 from Harmison, cur down to third man, try for a second: Giles rifles in a bullet of a throw after a slight fumble, right over the stumps, Read has the bails off in a flash with Jacobs an inch short 202/9
View dismissal TL Best c †Read b Hoggard 1 19 15 0 0 6.66
41.5 regulation away swing bowler's dismissal, Best has a nibble, Read takes in front of Trescothick at first slip 148/7
View dismissal A Sanford run out (Vaughan/†Read) 1 29 18 0 0 5.55
48.1 Flintoff to Jacobs, for once Jacobs goes for the hook. Vaughan chases it down, pulls off a baseball slide as the batsmen turn for a third, rifles in a throw to Read who finds Sanford well short of home. 165/8
View dismissal PT Collins b Harmison 10 54 30 0 0 33.33
60.1 no arguing about that: good length, comes back in to him and nips the top of middle stump. 208/10

View dismissal ME Trescothick c Sanford b Best 1 17 13 0 0 7.69
3.4 short, Trescothick pulls, rather late on it, gets it off the top edge near the splice and can only stand and watch as Sanford comes in four or five paces and collects it safely 8/2
View dismissal MP Vaughan* lbw b Collins 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 got him! previous ball set him up for this. This came back a shade, and Vaughan doesn't get bat on it, caught plumb in front of middle and off. 2/1

View dismissal GP Thorpe c Gayle b Collins 90 308 228 9 1 39.47
130.1 offstump, comes in just a little to him, Thorpe tries the back foot force/punch he's been assimilating singles with for the last 200+ balls, but finds an outside edge - regulation catch for Gayle. 318/8
View dismissal A Flintoff c & b DR Smith 23 35 24 3 0 95.83
91.2 Flintoff holes out to a perfectly straightforward delivery, caught easily by Dwayne Smith off his own bowling, and Lara's bowling change pays off 218/5
View dismissal CMW Read lbw b Collins 3 11 11 0 0 27.27
94.2 pad then bat, pitched middle and off, Read not really pushing at it with his bat, loud appeal from the Collins and a wait of 2-3 seconds whilst the umpire made up his mind 230/6
View dismissal AF Giles c DS Smith b Collins 37 145 99 1 0 37.37
126.4 slants another one across him, Giles goes fishing, and gets an edge, low to Devon Smith's left - very well taken 315/7

View dismissal SP Jones b Gayle 1 13 13 0 0 7.69
133.3 that'll slow things up a bit! Goes back when he should have got forward, plays round and over it, and the sound of rattling timber heralds Jones long walk back to the pavillion. 319/9
View dismissal SJ Harmison b Gayle 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
133.5 I rest my case. Fired in at his toes, Harmison well outside the line, and there's that telltale sound of falling timber again. 319/10

12.1 gets the radar right this time! pitches middle, doesn't really get up much, hits about halfway up off stump. Gayle will probably consider himself unlucky but unsurprised. 34/1
View dismissal DS Smith c Hoggard b Jones 17 63 43 2 0 39.53
14.4 or not. Loose drive, in the air to midoff, where Hoggard doesn't really have to move, just hold his hands out for it to fall in. 45/2

View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Hussain b Flintoff 42 201 147 2 0 28.57
