Match drawn
7,8,9,10,11 June 2012 (5-day match)
  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AB Barath lbw b Onions 41 137 106 4 1 38.67
31.6 81.9 mph, gone! Onions has his wicket. But Barath is using a review. Looked pretty good. Was full, but was it slipping down leg side? Interesting. Well, it's clipping the outside of leg stump. 90/2
View dismissal KOA Powell c Swann b Bresnan 24 78 43 2 0 55.81
17.3 81.0 mph, gone! Or is it?! Yes gone! Swann grabs on at second slip as Powell just feels outside off and gets a decent edge to a good height for the fielder who fumbled a touch but held it. It was a full ball just outside off and maybe Powell could have left it but he was feeling bat on ball nicely previously in the over and pushed at it 49/1
View dismissal AB Fudadin c Bell b Bresnan 28 138 110 4 0 25.45
52.3 83.4 mph, shorter and out! And Bell's bothered to catch one! Sharp bumper, nothing the batsman can do to get out of the way, and it loops off the gloves to third slip where it is physically impossible for Bell to drop, he obliges with the simplest of catches. Such a well-directed, sharp delivery and too good for Fudadin 128/4
View dismissal DM Bravo c & b Finn 6 39 16 1 0 37.50
38.5 84.6 mph, gone! Finn grabs a low return catch as Bravo basically blocks a delivery back to him in his follow through. The ball may have stopped a little, but quite an odd dismissal 99/3
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b Bresnan 76 153 114 10 1 66.66
79.1 77.4 mph, big appeal, and given lbw! Samuels reviews pretty quickly. It nipped back from outside off. Might be outside the line. There's no edge. Well, it's umpire's call for impact so that will stay as out. Huge breakthrough for England shortly before the new ball. End of another fine innings from Samuels 208/6
View dismissal N Deonarine c Strauss b Onions 7 41 29 1 0 24.13
62.4 85.5 mph, got him! Samuels out of the firing line but it means Deonarine is bang into it and he nicks to slip. Angled across the left hander he followed it and got a healthy edge where Strauss claimed a simple chance 152/5
D Ramdin not out 107 289 183 9 0 58.46
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Strauss b Finn 16 42 35 2 0 45.71
88.4 79.9 mph, this time it's held by Strauss a flashed cut is nicked to Strauss. This was at chest height and Strauss claims it and stands in frustration at his earlier miss. The stroke was played without foot movement and it was an thickish edge that went quickly to first slip 241/7
View dismissal SP Narine b Onions 11 24 17 1 0 64.70
94.1 83.0 mph, bowled him! This tight off stump line eventually gets Narine, deservedly so for Onions who has been excellent. He played a little dab shot really, nothing much, didn't move his feet and got an inside edge onto leg stump 267/8
View dismissal R Rampaul c †Prior b Finn 2 17 12 0 0 16.66
98.3 85.0 mph, what a beauty, Finn strikes third ball. Fuller length, it seams away from Rampaul around off stump and takes the outside edge through to Prior. Lovely delivery. 283/9
View dismissal TL Best c Strauss b Onions 95 138 112 14 1 84.82
129.3 68.5 mph, oh dear, Tino! A slower ball from Onions, Best tries to heave it over the leg side and gets a top edge that loops high in the air. Strauss backtracks from slip and takes the catch to end the dream. Still, what an innings from Best. A memorable display 426/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Bravo b Best 17 70 45 1 0 37.77
14.2 87.7 mph, and he takes a wicket second ball! Strauss cutting a ball too close to him and it's superbly taken at first slip, a fine catch because that went very quickly and he claimed it at head height with both hands, a big wicket 49/3
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Rampaul 4 19 8 0 0 50.00
3.6 85.8 mph, got him! Cook walks across his stumps and swings across the line, it looked out and given, reviewed though, but I fancy this is good and indeed it is, two reds, he's gone. It started on middle and leg and straightened, Cook rather fell over himself and was caught in front, Hawk Eye had the ball cannoning middle and leg stumps 13/1
View dismissal IJL Trott b Sammy 17 28 23 3 0 73.91
10.2 76.1 mph, chopped on a pretty lazy stroke, looking to guide down towards third man and he's pulled it onto the base of off stump. Done for a lack of pace I fancy, this stuff is 15mph slower than Best and Trott might have been there too soon, probably a touch close to cut too 40/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Sammy b Samuels 78 141 81 11 1 96.29
44.2 54.1 mph, and now gone caught at slip, Pietersen pushed hard at it outside off stump and it was very well held by Sammy diving to take it to his right hand side, was it an arm ball again? It didn't turn like an offie, Pietersen came a long way out to it and it was a healthy edge, an arms-outstretched celebration from Samuels 186/4
IR Bell not out 76 174 137 10 0 55.47
View dismissal JM Bairstow b Best 18 36 37 3 0 48.64
53.2 85.7 mph, bowled him! Bairstow plays around a full straight one and gets cleaned up. It was a quick delivery angled into middle and leg, Bairstow went to clip it into the leg side and I think just been done for pace, too late on the delivery which comes off the pads into the stumps, Tino jumps and punches the air 215/5
