    16.2 that's what happens when you can't get the board moving! A beautiful line across the left-hander, demanding a response, and the thinnest of grazes flies through to Ramdin! 20/4
    2.1 got him! No, dropped him - has he? He's taken it at the second attempt! An excellent, probing delivery by Taylor to which Cook drives loosely at, the ball flying low to Devon Smith at second slip. He scooped it, shelled it, and crouched forward to take it at the second attempt 1/1
    9.4 got him! Benn's done it for West Indies! A bit too wide to be playing the cut, particularly with silly point in place - and especially as lunch was only two balls away. Bell went back, the ball took the inside edge of his cut-stroke and Ramdin took a fine catch 11/2
    10.1 absolutely stunning delivery! Full, fast, straight, late outswing, and Pietersen's off stump cartwheels into the middle distance! 12/3
    18.1 good grief, what's happened there? Collingwood doesn't have a clue, he's haring up and down the pitch, running two runs for an inside-edge. But, and it's a rather monstrous but, that inside-edge has flicked his leg stump! The tell-tale bail is sat grinning on the ground, and England are in absolute, total, and unbelievably comprehensive disarray! 23/5
    32.3 BOWLED HIM! Well, you have to say it was almost inevitable. Flintoff was lining himself up to carve Edwards either inside out over point, or over midwicket. He tried to go over midwicket and was bowled by a decent, fast, full delivery 51/9
    18.5 five for Taylor, in the blink of an eye! A beautiful slower-ball offcutter, pings through the gate, and well blow me down, this could be over tonight! 23/6
    19.6 gone! Un-be-lievable! Slightly back of a length, turning off the track, met with a full face, and clipped straight into Xavier Marshall's hands at short leg! 26/7
    31.5 Sidebottom is rapped on the pads and up goes Rudi's finger. But Sidebottom is referring it. Now then. Daryl Harper will have to find a specific error with the on-field umpire's original (out) decision, and replays are indicating that it would've gone onto hit the stumps. After a short delay, Rudi raises his finger for the second time and Sidebottom is furious... 50/8
    33.2 bowled him! He went for a sweep and dragged it on - and West Indies record a quite brilliant victory 51/10
