Match Notes

  • Dravid takes over the top spot

    Brian Lara's twin failures in the Lord's Test against England has meant that Rahul Dravid has, for the first time in his career, taken over as the top Test batsman in the PwC Ratings

  • Giles takes five as England cruise to victory

    Five wickets from Ashley Giles helped England to a convincing victory against West Indies in the opening Test at Lord's

  • England look to build on lead of 223

    Despite an iffy weather forecast it dawned fine in north London today, and England's openers will soon be out in the middle again, looking to build on a lead which is already substantial at 223

  • The duel of the day

    Every now and again Test cricket throws up an epic individual battle that sticks in the memory

  • England take control despite Gayle's attacking 81

    England took the honours in the final session on the fourth day at Lord's despite a whirlwind 81 from 88 balls by Chris Gayle, taking three top order wickets to put West Indies in a precarious position before bad light stopped play with seven overs
