View dismissal CH Gayle* c †Prior b Broad 46 54 39 3 5 117.94
12.4 wicket, finally! Short of a good length on the off stump and he tries to bludgeon that into the stands over midwicket, gets the top edge and Matt Prior judges it well running to his left. 72/1
View dismissal LMP Simmons run out (Mascarenhas/†Prior) 29 63 39 3 1 74.35
13.5 Flintoff to Sarwan, run out, Sarwan must take the blame there, short on middle, turned away into the vacant square-leg region, they take an easy single and Sarwan calls for the second, Simmons is halfway down the pitch only to see his partner back away at the last moment, Mascarenhas returns an accurate throw to the keeper who clips off the bails to find him well short 76/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan b Flintoff 6 14 16 1 0 37.50
15.5 chopped it on! Fraction short on the off stump, tried to guide it to third man, got the inside edge and the sticks behind him take a beating! England have clawed back well here 83/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Prior b Mascarenhas 27 121 53 0 0 50.94
32.2 massive blow! Persisted with that irritating line just outside off, Chanderpaul tried to nudge that down to third man, got a thin edge and Prior made no mistake. England on top! 143/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c Flintoff b Mascarenhas 26 40 29 3 0 89.65
26.2 horrendous shot, that! Not even to the pitch, bowled on a good length on the off stump, went for a massive heave over midwicket, ended up slicing it and Flintoff at mid-on ran a few steps back to complete a well-judged catch. West Indies clearly on the back foot now 126/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo c sub (IR Bell) b Broad 69 143 72 7 2 95.83
47.2 gone, identical delivery, attempts an identical shot, connects it this time, but not well enough, finds the substitute fielder Ian Bell who snaps it comfortably at deep midwicket, the end of a valuable innings 225/9
View dismissal KA Pollard c Flintoff b Mascarenhas 0 9 7 0 0 0.00
34.4 excellent catch by Flintoff, but he seems to have touched the ropes! The runs were difficult to come by, Pollard's eyes lit up after he saw that ball pitched up on the off stump, had a wild swing at it, didnt get hold of it and Flintoff at deep midwicket took it above his head with a leap and it just looked, seeing the replays, as if his left foot had just nudged the ropes on his way down. There was definitely some movement, the umpires, though, have given it out 145/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy b Broad 6 21 15 0 0 40.00
40.4 timber! Bowled at 84.6 mph, a hint of inward movement, landed on a good length on the off stump, pushed Sammy back, kept a little low, broke through his defenses to crash into off and middle 173/7
NO Miller not out 10 51 13 1 0 76.92
View dismissal FH Edwards c Collingwood b Anderson 0 12 7 0 0 0.00
46.5 gone, deceived by the slower one, bowled full outside off, instead of giving his partner the strike he chips this one straight o Collingwood at long-off, Bravo stranded with the last man now, Fidel's no hitter 224/8

View dismissal RS Bopara c Miller b Pollard 35 64 39 0 1 89.74
14.3 gone, but has the wicket come too late? Failed to pick the slower one, was into the stroke too early and failed to get to the pitch, Pollard held it back just a touch compared to the previous delivery, Bopara tried to swing it over square leg, got the direction wrong, ended up lofting it really high towards fine leg where Miller took a well-judged catch 108/1
