    24.4 the end of a very entertaining knock - Harmison has him playing at a ball outside off stump, regulation outside edge safely taken by Chris Read 100/1
    26.1 walks across the stumps a bit, pitches leg stump, hits middle, barring the fact Smith has a pad in the way, playing a rather nothing shot. Harmison definitely liking bowling from this end. 110/2
    37 rather like taking candy from a baby. Fences outside off stump at a ball that moves away slightly, and the big man watches it all the way into his hands at second slip 143/6
    26.5 Steve Harmison is having a bit of a magical spell just at present. Dug in short, off the shoulder of the bat via teh helmet to the birthday boy, Giles, who makes a little bit of a production number of the catch before he finally hangs on. 110/3
    29.4 horrible shot and he pays the price! short delivery wide outside the off stump, Chanderpaul needlessly pokes at it and gets a thick edge, Read makes no mistake, Jones gets his man 113/4
    36.1 at least he died with his boots on, as the saying goes. Short, pulls, goes almost straight up in the air and down Hussain's throat at square leg. I think Harmison can claim the moral victory there. 142/5
    56.2 cur down to third man, try for a second: Giles rifles in a bullet of a throw after a slight fumble, right over the stumps, Read has the bails off in a flash with Jacobs an inch short 202/9
    41.5 regulation away swing bowler's dismissal, Best has a nibble, Read takes in front of Trescothick at first slip 148/7
    48.1 for once Jacobs goes for the hook. Vaughan chases it down, pulls off a baseball slide as the batsmen turn for a third, rifles in a throw to Read who finds Sanford well short of home. 165/8
    60.1 no arguing about that: good length, comes back in to him and nips the top of middle stump. 208/10

    3.4 short, Trescothick pulls, rather late on it, gets it off the top edge near the splice and can only stand and watch as Sanford comes in four or five paces and collects it safely 8/2
    1 got him! previous ball set him up for this. This came back a shade, and Vaughan doesn't get bat on it, caught plumb in front of middle and off. 2/1
    61.2 Butcher waits for the umpire's decision and slowly Bowden raises his finger 128/3

    83.1 faint edge into the off stump 186/4
    130.1 offstump, comes in just a little to him, Thorpe tries the back foot force/punch he's been assimilating singles with for the last 200+ balls, but finds an outside edge - regulation catch for Gayle. 318/8
    91.2 Flintoff holes out to a perfectly straightforward delivery, caught easily by Dwayne Smith off his own bowling, and Lara's bowling change pays off 218/5
    94.2 pad then bat, pitched middle and off, Read not really pushing at it with his bat, loud appeal from the Collins and a wait of 2-3 seconds whilst the umpire made up his mind 230/6
    126.4 slants another one across him, Giles goes fishing, and gets an edge, low to Devon Smith's left - very well taken 315/7

    133.3 that'll slow things up a bit! Goes back when he should have got forward, plays round and over it, and the sound of rattling timber heralds Jones long walk back to the pavillion. 319/9
    133.5 I rest my case. Fired in at his toes, Harmison well outside the line, and there's that telltale sound of falling timber again. 319/10

    12.1 gets the radar right this time! pitches middle, doesn't really get up much, hits about halfway up off stump. Gayle will probably consider himself unlucky but unsurprised. 34/1
    14.4 or not. Loose drive, in the air to midoff, where Hoggard doesn't really have to move, just hold his hands out for it to fall in. 45/2
    18.3 huge appeal for LBW and after a long think umpire Bowden gives him out 56/3
    50.3 another shortish one, another one with awkward bounce, and with awkward shot to match, comes off the splice of the bat and it's flintoff running from the gully, any of three players could've caught that 158/4
    62.1 short of a length, chanders hooks, nasser runs in to take a good diving catch, england are firmly in control 195/7
    53.1 and what a bowling change it is, inswinging yorker, lara pinned back on his crease, misses defending across the line, and that is very very plumb 171/5
    61 good length ball, smith driving it square, behind point in fact, but the sub collingwood is there to take a superb catch, diving to his right 194/6
    63.4 pitches just outside the off stump, continues wihtout deviating, but too good for best, strikes on the knee roll, dead in front 200/8
    66 driving to drive it, not really succeeding, regulation edge into the regulation hands of the regulation 1st slip 205/9
