END OF OVER:
20 | 5 Runs | Middx: 109/4

So, a bit of a flaccid finish to what promised to be an intriguing run-chase. Much like Trinidad in yesterday's encounter, the minnows promised much, but lacked the firepower to chase down a meagre total.

Anyway, those are the warm-ups out of the way. Tomorrow, the tournament gets interesting, as Trinidad and Middlesex slug it out for a US$400,000 prize pool. On the evidence of the past two matches, it should be a closely-fought encounter. Thanks for tuning in. I've been Andrew Miller, and I'm still staggered by Andrew Strauss's dropped catch ...

Flintoff to Malan, no run, low full toss, thumped out to extra cover, and that's the end of that. Flintoff was simply too good in the final analysis

Flintoff to Dexter, 1 run, clipped to midwicket, and no way through there either

Flintoff to Dexter, 2 runs, flicked off the pads, but only boundaries will win it now

Our servers have keeled over amid the excitement, but I assure you there was no surprise finish. England have won this contest by 12 runs

Flintoff to Malan, 1 run, nothing doing there either. Full and straight again

Flintoff to Malan, no run, that is superb bowling at this stage of a match. He knew what was coming - a full, fast, straight delivery - but he still couldn't make anything of it

Flintoff to Dexter, 1 run, speared into the toes, and flicked to deep midwicket
