21 April 2007 (50-over match)
  West Indies innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle c Broad b Flintoff 79 105 58 10 3 136.20
23.5 gone! Very well caught Stuart Broad who was brought in a few yards at third man a few moments ago. It was slashed uppishly to him but he had to dive to make the final few metres...to take a very good catch 131/1
View dismissal DS Smith c Collingwood b Flintoff 61 135 106 6 0 57.54
29.3 what a catch - a remarkable, gravity-defying catch! Smith slashed seemingly over Paul Collingwood at backward point who sprung up, swivelling as he did so, taking the ball high in the air. A quite brilliant example of athleticism and hand-eye co-ordination 168/2
View dismissal BC Lara* run out (Pietersen) 18 39 17 3 0 105.88
30.5 Broad to Samuels, what a desperate way to bring down the curtain on Lara's career. Samuels pushed the ball to mid-on, called for the run, Lara answered and almost immediately Samuels changed his mind, leaving Lara stranded. 173/3
View dismissal MN Samuels c Collingwood b Vaughan 51 59 39 6 1 130.76
42.5 oh, a tame dismissal from Samuels really. A leg-side drifter but Samuels couldn't lift it over Collingwood at short midwicket who held on to a stinger 258/5
View dismissal RR Sarwan c †Nixon b Plunkett 3 11 8 0 0 37.50
33.2 short outside off stump, a little extra bounce, Sarwan got a thin top edge to his cut and Nixon held a routine catch 181/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Plunkett b Collingwood 34 52 39 5 0 87.17
45.3 sloppy, lazy shot from Chanderpaul, trying to loft it over the bowler's head for six. Very well bowled from Collingwood though, a little off-cutter which Chanderpaul spooned to long-on who only had to run in a metre or so, taking the ball in his lap 276/6
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Dalrymple b Vaughan 13 16 11 1 0 118.18
46.1 Vaughan gets another: Bravo came down the pitch, trying to slog him over midwicket but he couldn't get on top of it, mistiming it and skying it to Dalrymple at deep midwicket who took a simple catch 277/7
D Ramdin not out 10 20 11 1 0 90.90
View dismissal JE Taylor c Dalrymple b Vaughan 12 9 10 1 0 120.00
48.5 gone this time though. Again he comes down the pitch and tries to slog it over midwicket, but he doesn't get all of it and skies it to Dalyrmple who steadies himself and takes an easy catch at deep midwicket 296/8
View dismissal DBL Powell run out (Flintoff) 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 from Flintoff, goddim! A good yorker which was dug out, deadening the ball...Powell wants a single but Ramdin most certainly does not...and Preston's finest kicks the ball onto the stumps 298/9
View dismissal CD Collymore run out (Flintoff) 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
49.5 from Flintoff, ah nicely bowled, an excellent yorker which bobbles off his pads. Collymore's going for a run regardless, but Flintoff scoops up the ball and throws down the stumps with casual disdain. Slick piece of work to end the innings 300/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss c Smith b Collymore 7 10 12 1 0 58.33
2.3 straight, Strauss looks to turn it to leg but all he does is scoop the ball into the hands of Devon Smith at square leg. A soft dismissal 11/1
View dismissal MP Vaughan* run out (Bravo) 79 116 68 6 2 116.17
26.3 from Sarwan, cut to backward point, Vaughan was off for the single but Bravo picked up and scored a direct hit at the striker's end. The third umpire was called for but Vaughan, who wasn't even in the frame, wasn't hanging around and was back in the hutch by the time the decision came 154/3
View dismissal RS Bopara run out (Bravo) 26 60 43 3 0 60.46
15.3 from Collymore, that's a fine shot, cracking it square off the back foot, but it's brilliantly saved by Bravo at backward point. Oh and Bopara's going for a run but Bravo throws down the stumps - and hits, leaving Bopara comfortably short. Electric fielding from West Indies' best 101/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Taylor 100 144 91 10 1 109.89
46.2 another big heave, but Taylor fire in a full delivery on and it crashes into the leg stump 269/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Bravo 6 11 11 1 0 54.54
29.2 outside off, Collingwood attempts to cut the ball but bottom-edges into his stumps. Bravo wheels away airplane-like while Collingwood looks accusingly at the pitch. Nothing wrong with the surface ... 162/4
View dismissal A Flintoff c Powell b Sarwan 15 23 20 2 0 75.00
34.2 oh dear. The kiss of death from Will as Flintoff flicks it - nothing more than a casual pluck to Powell at mid-on 185/5
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple run out (Smith) 1 6 6 0 0 16.66
35.5 from Taylor, firmly on-driven to Devon Smith - straight to him, in fact - who threw down the stumps. A terrible, clueless run from Dalrymple and Smith, well, he had three stumps to aim at and hit middle. Easy. 189/6
View dismissal PA Nixon b Bravo 38 83 39 4 0 97.43
49.2 anyone with a weak heart, turn off now. Slower ball fools Nixon who was on the walk as Bravo let go, he misses and it clips the top of his off stump 298/9
View dismissal LE Plunkett c Bravo b Taylor 2 4 3 0 0 66.66
46.5 slower ball - 71mph - Plunkett underclubs and Bravo, five yards in from the long-on boundary, waits and takes a good catch above his head 271/8
SCJ Broad not out 5 24 5 0 0 100.00
