View dismissal CH Gayle* c Anderson b Sidebottom 36 55 40 2 3 90.00
12.2 Gayle goes to repeat the launch, looking to shoot over long-on, but was through the shot way too early, stopping on it, and sending an easy catch to Anderson who clings on at mid-on 67/2
View dismissal DS Smith c †Prior b Anderson 17 36 21 2 0 80.95
8.2 Smith is gone, and that was a loose slash outside off stump. It was short and wide, and there to be clobbered, but Smith rushed the stroke and instead feathered the simplest of edges through to Prior. An important breakthrough for England 50/1
S Chanderpaul not out 116 81 122 9 3 95.08
View dismissal MN Samuels c Sidebottom b Broad 77 62 104 7 1 74.03
45.6 slow bouncer, a simple catch for Sidebottom at gully, Samuels popping that one up to him 242/3
View dismissal DR Smith lbw b Broad 7 6 5 0 1 140.00
47.3 an attempted yorker slips, too high, and clatters into the pad. A big shout goes up, and the umpire has to give it; that would have hit middle-and-off halfway up 257/4
View dismissal RS Morton c Bell b Sidebottom 3 4 5 0 0 60.00
49.1 slower ball, flashed high and straight down the ground, where Bell takes the catch well, in front of his body 274/5

View dismissal AN Cook c Edwards b Powell 19 20 24 3 0 79.16
5.1 gone! Poor stroke. It was wide, he went after it and tried to loft it over mid-off's head but couldn't quite clear Edwards, who timed his jump perfectly 23/1
View dismissal MJ Prior c DS Smith b Powell 52 136 73 3 1 71.23
24.2 doesn't work this time - a leading edge as Prior was looking over the leg-side again, finds Smith at midwicket, with a simple chance 113/4
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Rampaul 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
6.5 and he's given him! Bell was back in his crease, the ball jagging back massively onto the right hander and rapping him on the pads on off stump 30/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Rampaul 9 27 11 1 0 81.81
12.6 nothing loose there! That's a massive wicket, and once again, Pietersen was looking to come forward. In the end he yorked himself as he looked to whip through midwicket. Full credit to Rampaul who held his nerve, and his length 64/3
View dismissal OA Shah c †Ramdin b Rampaul 45 132 64 2 1 70.31
37.1 got him! Rampaul sends it shorter and wider, tempting Shah into a pull but he gets a thin bottom edge through to the wicketkeeper 172/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood* lbw b Edwards 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
25.4 plumb as you like, and West Indies do like - that's a very big wicket for them. Collingwood trapped straight, the ball pitching on off and coming back and would have rocked middle 117/5
View dismissal MH Yardy c DR Smith b Bravo 19 43 42 1 0 45.23
36.3 oh dear. Yardy, looking for the big shot over midwicket, mistimes this pull and skies it to deep midwicket who doesn't move a muscle, taking a simple catch 171/6
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas c Powell b Rampaul 3 14 11 0 0 27.27
39.5 short of a length, Mascarenhas tries to pull it but mistimes it to Powell at mid-on who takes a comfortable catch 179/8
SCJ Broad not out 22 54 19 2 0 115.78
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom run out (DR Smith) 15 7 7 2 0 214.28
41.2 from Edwards, fuller length, not quite a yorker. Sidebottom crouches and, with a keen eye, steers out to point. They aimed for a quick single but the third umpire shows a squeakingly close decision. Excellent work from Dwayne Smith and its all over bar the self-indulgent guitar solo 195/9
View dismissal JM Anderson c †Ramdin b Edwards 3 19 18 0 0 16.66
45.6 full length outswinger, Anderson is drawn into the stroke, and the thin edge is pouched by Denesh Ramdin. West Indies have won a handsome victory, as Edwards strikes with the final ball of his spell. Excellent effort from him, both here and at Lord's 217/10
