ICC World Cup - 48th match, Super Eights
England won by 1 wicket (with 1 ball remaining)
21 April 2007 (50-over match)
23.5

Flintoff to Gayle, OUT, gone! Very well caught Stuart Broad who was brought in a few yards at third man a few moments ago. It was slashed uppishly to him but he had to dive to make the final few metres...to take a very good catch

CH Gayle c Broad b Flintoff 79 (105m 58b 10x4 3x6) SR: 136.20

West Indies 131/1   DS Smith 42* (86b 3x4)   A Flintoff 2.5-0-9-1
29.3

Flintoff to Smith, OUT, what a catch - a remarkable, gravity-defying catch! Smith slashed seemingly over Paul Collingwood at backward point who sprung up, swivelling as he did so, taking the ball high in the air. A quite brilliant example of athleticism and hand-eye co-ordination

DS Smith c Collingwood b Flintoff 61 (135m 106b 6x4 0x6) SR: 57.54

West Indies 168/2   BC Lara 14* (15b 2x4)   A Flintoff 5.3-0-23-2
30.5

Broad to Samuels, OUT, what a desperate way to bring down the curtain on Lara's career. Samuels pushed the ball to mid-on, called for the run, Lara answered and almost immediately Samuels changed his mind, leaving Lara stranded.

BC Lara run out 18 (39m 17b 3x4 0x6) SR: 105.88

West Indies 173/3   MN Samuels 0* (6b)   SCJ Broad 3.5-0-15-0
33.2

Plunkett to Sarwan, OUT, short outside off stump, a little extra bounce, Sarwan got a thin top edge to his cut and Nixon held a routine catch

RR Sarwan c †Nixon b Plunkett 3 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

West Indies 181/4   MN Samuels 5* (13b)   LE Plunkett 5.2-0-42-1
42.5

Vaughan to Samuels, OUT, oh, a tame dismissal from Samuels really. A leg-side drifter but Samuels couldn't lift it over Collingwood at short midwicket who held on to a stinger

MN Samuels c Collingwood b Vaughan 51 (59m 39b 6x4 1x6) SR: 130.76

West Indies 258/5   S Chanderpaul 28* (32b 4x4)   MP Vaughan 6.5-0-20-1
45.3

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, OUT, sloppy, lazy shot from Chanderpaul, trying to loft it over the bowler's head for six. Very well bowled from Collingwood though, a little off-cutter which Chanderpaul spooned to long-on who only had to run in a metre or so, taking the ball in his lap

S Chanderpaul c Plunkett b Collingwood 34 (52m 39b 5x4 0x6) SR: 87.17

West Indies 276/6   DJ Bravo 12* (9b 1x4)   PD Collingwood 7.3-0-39-1
46.1

Vaughan to Bravo, OUT, Vaughan gets another: Bravo came down the pitch, trying to slog him over midwicket but he couldn't get on top of it, mistiming it and skying it to Dalrymple at deep midwicket who took a simple catch

DJ Bravo c Dalrymple b Vaughan 13 (16m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 118.18

West Indies 277/7   D Ramdin 0* (2b)   MP Vaughan 8.1-0-29-2
48.5

Vaughan to Taylor, OUT, gone this time though. Again he comes down the pitch and tries to slog it over midwicket, but he doesn't get all of it and skies it to Dalyrmple who steadies himself and takes an easy catch at deep midwicket

JE Taylor c Dalrymple b Vaughan 12 (9m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

West Indies 296/8   D Ramdin 7* (8b 1x4)   MP Vaughan 9.5-0-38-3
49.2

Flintoff to Powell, OUT, goddim! A good yorker which was dug out, deadening the ball...Powell wants a single but Ramdin most certainly does not...and Preston's finest kicks the ball onto the stumps

DBL Powell run out 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 298/9   D Ramdin 9* (10b 1x4)   A Flintoff 9.2-0-57-2
49.5

Flintoff to Collymore, OUT, ah nicely bowled, an excellent yorker which bobbles off his pads. Collymore's going for a run regardless, but Flintoff scoops up the ball and throws down the stumps with casual disdain. Slick piece of work to end the innings

CD Collymore run out 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 300/10   D Ramdin 10* (11b 1x4)   A Flintoff 9.5-0-59-2
