    11.5 gone! Russell strikes again, the short ball gets Strauss. He went for the pull but got a top edge and Gayle make excellent ground running back from midwicket, taking the catch over his shoulder then holding on as he hit the deck 79/2
    9.1 Russell strikes! Emphatically! Full and sliding into Prior is exactly the place to bowl to him. He was hanging on the back foot and the ball had burst through and splattered middle stump before he'd even thought about defence 48/1
    21.6 Bishoo strikes! His first wicket in ODI cricket. What a soft end to a fantastic innings. Started with a bang and ended in a whimper, chipping the ball gently to midwicket. Good reward for Bishoo, his spell changed the run of play 121/3

    26.1 haha, maybe not that much pace! Off stump is on its way to England! Fullish ball angling in, Bell was hanging back and the off stump was sent flying! England's campaign is tottering now, starts for all the England players but they're four down for not enough now. Ravi Bopara has a huge job to do. Can he prove his talent under pressure? 134/4
    27.2 oh no, that could be it! Bishoo has the key wicket! Tame end too, Morgan aiming a delicate reverse sweep, misses and brushes a glove through to Thomas who makes no mistake 134/5
    32.2 gone! And another. England falling in a heap. Bopara gets an inside into the stumps as he plays with an angled bat. Stumps are shattered for third time today 151/6
    43.4 ah that ends a sparky innings from Wright. Not a great shot, slogging to the deep midwicket fielder but without his contribution England would be nowhere in this game 216/8

    47.1 have to give credit to captain and bowler, backed the wicket-taker and he's struck emphatically. Swann's stumps are a mess, full and straight, Swann jumped leg side to swish a drive but it was through him 238/9
    48.4 that'll be all. Good finish from Roach, banging in a short ball that gets Tremlett into a tangle, fends off with a glove that loops behind to Thomas to take 243/10

    8.6 Is this another? Yes it is, Smith has been smartly stumped. Fired it quite full, it got in a tangle of bat and boot, the ball dribbles back to Prior who takes the bails off. The replay is good, but more drama. The third umpire presses the wrong button first! It's quickly changed and he's given out. 67/2
    6.5 gone! Has Tredwell done it? Gayle given lbw but he's reviewed it. No bat, this looks good. And the decision stays. Massive breakthrough for England. Gayle played forward and was struck below the knee roll. Replays said it was clipping the top of the stumps 58/1
    17.1 another one falls, this game is brewing into another classic! Sammy's slogging finally gets the better of him but what a little cameo that's been! It was outside off, just kept a little low, found the inside edge and dragged onto the stumps 113/4
    12.6 Tredwell has three, England are scrapping. Tredwell could be an England matchwinner!? Fancy that! Bravo leant forward to defend, enough turn kissed the outside edge and crept through to Strauss who stayed low to scoop it inches off the turf 91/3
    19.4 Bopara has done it again! It's that inside edge again! Poor shot really but the pressure paid. Just aimed to glide it down to third man but the inside edge shoved it onto the stumps. Don't take your eyes off England! Here comes Pollard, and it's still a Powerplay! 118/5
    43.1 gone! Would you believe it. Swann has struck. Extra bounce, Sarwan went to turn it on the leg side and gets an inside onto the thigh pad which loops gently to Ian Bell at short leg. You couldn't write these scripts 223/8
    27.4 gone! Swann has done it. Pollard goes lbw. He played back and was beaten by the turn. He was given out on the field but reviewed it. Replays showed it was clipping leg comfortably 150/6
    41.2 gone! Tredwell strikes and there are no reviews left. Tredwell was round the wicket, Russell played played back and was given lbw, he doesn't look pleased but he can only walk off for 49 222/7
    44.4 gone! England have done it. A run out to win the match. It was a wide ball, Benn got a bottom edge down which scoot down to fine leg...Trott was quickly in and picked it, then hurled it back to Prior with a brilliant throw. That allowed Prior to demolish the stumps and England are still alive at this World Cup. Breathless. Bonkers. But brilliant fun to watch. 225/10
    43.3 gone! And another! He tries to go down the ground, but doesn't connect and lofts it towards mid-off where Tremlett makes good ground to his right and takes a smart, low catch 223/9
