ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 36th match, Group B

England v West Indies

England won by 18 runs

9.1

Russell to Prior, OUT, Russell strikes! Emphatically! Full and sliding into Prior is exactly the place to bowl to him. He was hanging on the back foot and the ball had burst through and splattered middle stump before he'd even thought about defence

MJ Prior b Russell 21 (36m 21b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 48/1   AJ Strauss 27* (34b 3x4 1x6)   AD Russell 1.1-0-7-1

11.5

Russell to Strauss, OUT, gone! Russell strikes again, the short ball gets Strauss. He went for the pull but got a top edge and Gayle make excellent ground running back from midwicket, taking the catch over his shoulder then holding on as he hit the deck

AJ Strauss c Gayle b Russell 31 (50m 39b 3x4 1x6) SR: 79.48

England 79/2   IJL Trott 27* (11b 6x4)   AD Russell 2.5-0-25-2

21.6

Bishoo to Trott, OUT, Bishoo strikes! His first wicket in ODI cricket. What a soft end to a fantastic innings. Started with a bang and ended in a whimper, chipping the ball gently to midwicket. Good reward for Bishoo, his spell changed the run of play

IJL Trott c Gayle b Bishoo 47 (55m 38b 7x4 0x6) SR: 123.68

England 121/3   IR Bell 22* (34b 1x4)   D Bishoo 4-0-13-1

26.1

Roach to Bell, OUT, haha, maybe not that much pace! Off stump is on its way to England! Fullish ball angling in, Bell was hanging back and the off stump was sent flying! England's campaign is tottering now, starts for all the England players but they're four down for not enough now. Ravi Bopara has a huge job to do. Can he prove his talent under pressure?

IR Bell b Roach 27 (58m 48b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

England 134/4   EJG Morgan 7* (11b)   KAJ Roach 4.1-1-13-1

27.2

Bishoo to Morgan, OUT, oh no, that could be it! Bishoo has the key wicket! Tame end too, Morgan aiming a delicate reverse sweep, misses and brushes a glove through to Thomas who makes no mistake

EJG Morgan c †Thomas b Bishoo 7 (22m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

England 134/5   RS Bopara 0* (5b)   D Bishoo 6.2-0-20-2

32.2

Russell to Bopara, OUT, gone! And another. England falling in a heap. Bopara gets an inside into the stumps as he plays with an angled bat. Stumps are shattered for third time today

RS Bopara b Russell 4 (27m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

England 151/6   LJ Wright 6* (20b)   AD Russell 5.2-0-37-3

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

England 192/7   LJ Wright 29* (42b 3x4)   DJG Sammy 2.2-0-25-0

43.4

Bishoo to Wright, OUT, ah that ends a sparky innings from Wright. Not a great shot, slogging to the deep midwicket fielder but without his contribution England would be nowhere in this game

LJ Wright c Russell b Bishoo 44 (72m 57b 5x4 0x6) SR: 77.19

England 216/8   TT Bresnan 6* (11b)   D Bishoo 9.4-0-34-3

47.1

Russell to Swann, OUT, have to give credit to captain and bowler, backed the wicket-taker and he's struck emphatically. Swann's stumps are a mess, full and straight, Swann jumped leg side to swish a drive but it was through him

GP Swann b Russell 8 (14m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 238/9   TT Bresnan 18* (25b 2x4)   AD Russell 7.1-0-46-4

48.4

Roach to Tremlett, OUT, that'll be all. Good finish from Roach, banging in a short ball that gets Tremlett into a tangle, fends off with a glove that loops behind to Thomas to take

CT Tremlett c †Thomas b Roach 3 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

England 243/10   TT Bresnan 20* (27b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 9.4-2-34-2
