18 March 2007 (50-over match)
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal EC Joyce b Dhaniram 66 133 103 4 1 64.07
35.1 oh dear, another tame dismissal and a horrible shot - aiming to reverse sweep that, misses the ball completely the ball clips off stump 160/3
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Davison b Samad 45 82 64 7 0 70.31
19.6 and there you go. Once again Vaughan falls when he's well placed. Cleverly bowled, holding it back a touch and he slaps it straight to backward point 101/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Codrington b Dhaniram 28 42 44 1 0 63.63
33.2 that dismissal was softer than a pack of extra-soft marshmallows: Bell going for the slog sweep and sending it high and straight down short third man's throat - not literally, as that would have been painful, but you get the idea 153/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c & b Dhaniram 5 8 4 1 0 125.00
35.6 soft, softer, softest. Pietersen pops the ball back to the bowler, simple as that. A big blow for England, of course, not to mention the crowd. 161/4
PD Collingwood not out 62 62 48 4 1 129.16
View dismissal RS Bopara b Codrington 29 39 30 4 0 96.66
46.5 horrible shot, attempted reverse sweep, missed it totally and there goes his off stump - Bopara showing all of the sticks, there 242/5
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple c †Bagai b Cummins 2 2 4 0 0 50.00
47.4 oh dear - fishing at a very wide one with a premeditated sweep looking to paddle it fine, but made a late decision to try to dink it late to third man and sent it straight to the keeper instead 245/6
PA Nixon not out 23 10 8 4 1 287.50
Extras (b 4, lb 2, w 8, nb 5) 19

47.4 to Dalrymple, oh dear - fishing at a very wide one with a premeditated sweep looking to paddle it fine, but made a late decision to try to dink it late to third man and sent it straight to the keeper instead 245/6

  Canada innings (target: 280 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JM Davison* c Bell b Anderson 21 46 25 4 0 84.00
10.3 gone this time. He absolutely middled it, almost too well, smacking it aerially and straight to Ian Bell at deep extra cover 51/3
View dismissal GEF Barnett b Plunkett 7 5 7 1 0 100.00
1.3 bowled him neck and crop there, the batsman shouldering arms to one which nipped back in off the seam and that's a dreadful misjudgement 8/1
View dismissal A Bagai c Pietersen b Plunkett 6 14 11 1 0 54.54
5.1 gone this time. Like Anderson's ball in the over before, it was short but too straight to be uppercutting and he picked out third man 22/2
View dismissal IS Billcliff b Bopara 20 46 41 2 1 48.78
16.6 a jaffa! Just a touch shorter, cutting away from Billcliff's tentative forward defence and the off-stump was sent back 65/4
View dismissal AM Samad lbw b Panesar 36 100 67 1 1 53.73
35.1 and Panesar has struck now, that ball angling into the righthander, looking to whip that into the on-side 161/6
View dismissal AA Mulla st †Nixon b Bopara 58 71 60 7 1 96.66
34.4 gone! Got him! A threatening innings comes to an add with an impetuous waft 161/5
DR Chumney not out 27 63 51 0 1 52.94
View dismissal S Dhaniram run out (Collingwood/Bopara) 30 47 33 3 0 90.90
47.3 from Collingwood, worked off the legs and there's a huge call for a run out at the non-striker's end. England think they've got their man, with a throw on the knees from Bopara and Collingwood does the rest 217/7
