8.1

Sammy to Strauss, no run, steady start from Sammy, that's what he's all about and Strauss has no pace to work with

8.2

Sammy to Strauss, SIX, short to Strauss at Sammy's pace won't end well for the bowler. Leans back and eases his arms through the ball, pings over the midwicket boundary and into the fence. Top shot!

8.3

Sammy to Strauss, no run, good change of pace in response, much slower, but fuller too and Strauss can't connect

8.4

Sammy to Strauss, no run, another cutter and Strauss, despite flicking his wrists at the ball, can't force it away

8.5

Sammy to Strauss, 1 run, width combined with no slip means Strauss can happily guide this through the vacant area for a gimme single

8.6

Sammy to Prior, 1 run, sharp single to finish the over, Prior clipped to mid-on and immediately hared off for one. But for the one short ball that was a good over from Sammy, sadly the short one went for six

England 48/0   DJG Sammy 1-0-8-0
10.1

Sammy to Strauss, no run, around the wicket, tucked into the leg side

10.2

Sammy to Strauss, 2 runs, hint of width and he cuts it away through point but there's a sweeper on the cover boundary

10.3

Sammy to Strauss, 1 run, back of a length, opens the face and guides to third man

10.4

Sammy to Trott, 2 runs, too much on leg stump, neatly flicked away to deep square

10.5

Sammy to Trott, FOUR, wide outside off this time, Trott places it between cover and backward point for his fourth boundary

10.6

Sammy to Trott, FOUR, and another, this time he comes onto the front foot and drives a half volley through the covers. Superb stuff from Trott, but West Indies have lost their lines

England 73/1   DJG Sammy 2-0-21-0
39.1

Sammy to Wright, FOUR, begins by dropping in short, Wright latches on and cracks it away over midwicket...not a good start for the captain

39.2

Sammy to Wright, OUT, gone! Well that was a shambles. Wright cut hard to backward point where Pollard made a fine stop. Both batsmen were caught ball-watching in mid-pitch, Wright continued to run to the non-striker's end which left Tredwell stranded

JC Tredwell run out 9 (32m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.00

39.3

Sammy to Bresnan, 1 run, off the mark straight away as he tucks this into midwicket

39.4

Sammy to Wright, 1 leg bye, down the leg side, takes the pad towards square leg and Thomas scampers after it

39.5

Sammy to Bresnan, 1 run, tucked off the pads down to fine leg

39.6

Sammy to Wright, 1 run, another short ball is pulled to deep square...an ordinary over but it produced a wicket

England 196/7   DJG Sammy 3-0-28-0
