    0.3 Big blow! Full on the off stump and moving away from the left hander, Gayle gets forward to defend with an open face, gets the outside edge and Flintoff takes a dolly at second slip 1/1
    9.1 Simmons has thrown it away here, a fraction short on the off stump and he tries to slog it over mid-on, doesn't get hold of it, ends up mistiming it straight to Broad who accepts it gleefully 45/3
    7.3 gone! Too many attempts at a cut missed in this match and this one adds to the tally, short and wide, tries to clear point, gets a faint nick as Flintoff gains some good bounce and Prior pouches it comfortably 40/2
    14.1 Probably a decisive wicket! England had built up the pressure nicely and Chanderpaul was forced into going for a slog-sweep over square leg, didn't time it well enough and Bell, the substitute fielder, stationed in the deep just has a few steps forward to complete a simple catch 69/4
    23.6 an uphill task ahead of West Indies now, Bravo goes after a handy contribution, but should have stayed till the end. Slower one again, short outside off, mistimes a cut straight to Flintoff at cover 124/5
    24.1 not anymore! It's England's match to lose from here on. Full on middle and leg, struck through the line but not well enough, straight to Collingwood at long-on who takes a well judged catch running to his left 124/6
    26.3 bowled'im! Full and straight on the off stump, swinging in, Ramdin shuffles to tickle that fine, he's moved across a little too much and ends up playing the ball onto the stumps, Flintoff's taken three and England are inching towards a series win 140/7
    27.6 run out, drilled down the ground towards long-off, calls for the second even though there isn't one, Pietersen rockets in an accurate throw at the striker's end, Prior takes off the bails to find Sammy well short 146/10
    26.4 Flintoff on a hat-trick! Full on middle and leg, tries to whip it off his pads, misses and is struck on the pads in line with the stumps, Flintoff was late to appeal but Prior was convinced, and so was the umpire 140/8
    26.5 timber! He's taken three in a row and what's more it's a five-for! Yorker on middle, Benn makes room but it's too quick and he fails to get his bat down in time, the stumps take a beating and Flintoff is mobbed 140/9
