View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Bravo b Rampaul 3 5 4 0 0 75.00
1.1 what a tame dismissal, after the superb tour he's had! Banged in short on the off stump, goes for the pull, mistimes it completely and it lobs up straight to Bravo at midwicket 8/1
View dismissal RS Bopara c †Ramdin b Pollard 44 81 49 3 2 89.79
18.1 the shot just wasn't on, bowled on a good length outside off and he tried to heave that over midwicket from the crease, got the top edge and Ramdin just had to take a couple of steps to his left to complete an easy catch 104/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Sammy b Benn 48 62 48 4 1 100.00
15.2 gone! Some good bounce there for Benn, short outside off and Pietersen tries to cut that off the back foot, does so but uppishly and straight to Sammy at point does a good job diving forward to his left to hold on to that one 88/2
View dismissal OA Shah c Simmons b Benn 6 14 12 0 0 50.00
19.2 a cheap dismissal, and West Indies have pulled things back well here. Full on middle and off, really slow through the air, tries to clear long-on but with little intent, was a gentle loft that, wasn't struck cleanly and Simmons, waiting in the deep just for such an error, takes it comfortably 107/4
PD Collingwood not out 35 41 31 2 1 112.90
View dismissal A Flintoff c Chanderpaul b Pollard 3 4 6 0 0 50.00
20.5 stunning catch! Bowled short on middle and leg and Flintoff just chips it towards midwicket where Chanderpaul dives full length to his right to pluck that inches from the ground, superbly done 112/5

  West Indies innings (target: 173 runs from 29 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle* c Flintoff b Anderson 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 Big blow! Full on the off stump and moving away from the left hander, Gayle gets forward to defend with an open face, gets the outside edge and Flintoff takes a dolly at second slip 1/1
View dismissal LMP Simmons c Broad b Flintoff 17 47 19 2 0 89.47
9.1 Simmons has thrown it away here, a fraction short on the off stump and he tries to slog it over mid-on, doesn't get hold of it, ends up mistiming it straight to Broad who accepts it gleefully 45/3
View dismissal RR Sarwan c †Prior b Flintoff 23 34 28 3 0 82.14
7.3 gone! Too many attempts at a cut missed in this match and this one adds to the tally, short and wide, tries to clear point, gets a faint nick as Flintoff gains some good bounce and Prior pouches it comfortably 40/2
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c sub (IR Bell) b Collingwood 13 34 18 1 0 72.22
14.1 Probably a decisive wicket! England had built up the pressure nicely and Chanderpaul was forced into going for a slog-sweep over square leg, didn't time it well enough and Bell, the substitute fielder, stationed in the deep just has a few steps forward to complete a simple catch 69/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Flintoff b Broad 33 68 46 2 1 71.73
23.6 an uphill task ahead of West Indies now, Bravo goes after a handy contribution, but should have stayed till the end. Slower one again, short outside off, mistimes a cut straight to Flintoff at cover 124/5
View dismissal KA Pollard c Collingwood b Anderson 30 45 31 0 2 96.77
24.1 not anymore! It's England's match to lose from here on. Full on middle and leg, struck through the line but not well enough, straight to Collingwood at long-on who takes a well judged catch running to his left 124/6
View dismissal D Ramdin b Flintoff 12 7 10 2 0 120.00
26.3 bowled'im! Full and straight on the off stump, swinging in, Ramdin shuffles to tickle that fine, he's moved across a little too much and ends up playing the ball onto the stumps, Flintoff's taken three and England are inching towards a series win 140/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy run out (Pietersen/†Prior) 7 19 8 0 0 87.50
27.6 from Anderson, run out, drilled down the ground towards long-off, calls for the second even though there isn't one, Pietersen rockets in an accurate throw at the striker's end, Prior takes off the bails to find Sammy well short 146/10
View dismissal R Rampaul lbw b Flintoff 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
26.4 Flintoff on a hat-trick! Full on middle and leg, tries to whip it off his pads, misses and is struck on the pads in line with the stumps, Flintoff was late to appeal but Prior was convinced, and so was the umpire 140/8
View dismissal SJ Benn b Flintoff 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
26.5 timber! He's taken three in a row and what's more it's a five-for! Yorker on middle, Benn makes room but it's too quick and he fails to get his bat down in time, the stumps take a beating and Flintoff is mobbed 140/9
