England tour of West Indies, 2nd ODI: West Indies v England at Providence, Mar 22, 2009
West Indies won by 21 runs
22 March 2009 (50-over match)

Right, we are just about ready to start...it's Stuart Broad with the new ball. He has a slip and an extra cover catching.

Morning all. Will here. The Dyson fallout continues unabated. "They got everything they deserved," spits Botham. David "Bumble" Lloyd, friend of Cricinfo - friend of cricket - wondered whether Dyson (or Die Soon, as one Caribbean website termed him) might have to resign. That hasn't happened, and for all the ludicrousness and partial hilarity of it all, it's time we moved on. West Indies are now one-down, and for the first time in months Andrew Strauss was seen smiling at the post-toss chat.

9.05am West Indies have won the toss and decided to bat first as they try to square the series. They have made one change with Lionel Baker replacing Daren Powell

1 Chris Gayle, 2 Lendl Simmons, 3 Ramnaresh Sarwan, 4 Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Dwayne Bravo, 7 Darren Sammy, 8 Denesh Ramdin (wk), 9 Nikita Miller, 10 Lionel Baker, 11 Fidel Edwards

8.55am England have named an unchanged team so here is their side: 1 Andrew Strauss (capt), 2 Ravi Bopara, 3 Kevin Pietersen, 4 Owais Shah, 5 Paul Collingwood, 6 Matt Prior (wk), 7 Dimitri Mascarenhas, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Gareth Batty, 10 Steve Harmison, 11 James Anderson

8.50am Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of the second one-day international between West Indies and England. I'm Andrew McGlashan and will be joined by Will Luke to bring you all the action.

Let's hope that John Dyson has brushed up on his Duckworth-Lewis rules after his horrendous mistake on Friday cost West Indies the match. England, though, won't care about that after finally getting their first win of the winter.

There has been some early morning rain in Guyana but that was moved through and it's a bright and breezy morning. It has also been agreed that the floodlights can be used in this match so hopefully that should avoid a repeat of the situation from the other night when a full house was left bemused.

0.1

Broad to Gayle, no run, full outside off stump, goes for a drive and gets a thick inside edge into the leg side

0.2

Broad to Gayle, no run, good line outside off, Gayle chops down on it and finds short cover

0.3

Broad to Gayle, 1 run, touch more width, Gayle guides this down to third man

It looks another very slow pitch

0.4

Broad to Simmons, 1 wide, can't adjust to the right hander, fires this down the leg side and it's the first extra of the day

0.4

Broad to Simmons, no run, better from Broad, gets back outside off stump, left alone

0.5

Broad to Simmons, no run, slight hint of swing, but it carries at ankle height through to Matt Prior

0.6

Broad to Simmons, no run, fuller outside off, good length, Simmons shoulders arms again

End of over 1 (2 runs) West Indies 2/0 (RR: 2.00)

    • LMP Simmons 0 (3b)
    • CH Gayle 1 (3b)
    • SCJ Broad 1-0-2-0

James Anderson will share the new ball

1.1

Anderson to Gayle, no run, pushed across the left hander, carries quite nicely through to the keeper

1.2

Anderson to Gayle, no run, good line from Anderson, on middle and Gayle defends to the on side

1.3

Anderson to Gayle, no run, tucked off middle to square leg, can't beat the fielder

1.4

Anderson to Gayle, no run, well bowled by Anderson, beats Gayle on the inside edge as he comes forward but it doesn't carry through on the full to Prior

1.5

Anderson to Gayle, 1 run, drives up to mid-off, sets off for a sharp single and Gayle isn't exactly moving swiftly but still manages to make it

There's a problem with the ball already, maybe it's not round enough to white enough. The box comes out and they have changed it, looks like another brand new one

1.6

Anderson to Simmons, no run, well bowled, squares Simmons up a touch as he defends back to the bowler

Good start from Anderson

End of over 2 (1 run) West Indies 3/0 (RR: 1.50)

    • LMP Simmons 0 (4b)
    • CH Gayle 2 (8b)
    • JM Anderson 1-0-1-0
    • SCJ Broad 1-0-2-0

Now Gayle decides to change his bat...come on, get on with it

2.1

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, that's more like it from Gayle, swung hard down the ground past mid-on with real force

2.2

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, goes through midwicket this time, not out of the middle but he's so strong that it still races away to the rope

Clearly that change of bat has worked

2.3

Broad to Gayle, no run, great comeback from Broad, bounce and carry outside off as Gayle is beaten playing forward...Prior takes it around his shoulder

2.4

Broad to Gayle, no run, driven into the covers, nicely timed but goes straight to cover

2.5

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, short and wide outside off, slashed away up and over backward point, poor delivery from Broad and Gayle wasn't going to miss out on that

2.6

Broad to Gayle, no run, goes round the wicket, gets away with this one, still too much width but Gayle cuts it straight to the point fielder

End of over 3 (12 runs) West Indies 15/0 (RR: 5.00)

    • CH Gayle 14 (14b 3x4)
    • LMP Simmons 0 (4b)
    • SCJ Broad 2-0-14-0
    • JM Anderson 1-0-1-0
3.1

Anderson to Simmons, no run, full on the stumps, turned sweetly down to mid-on

3.2

Anderson to Simmons, OUT, that's out, superb delivery from Anderson, hint of movement away to Simmons who gets an healthy edge through to Prior...nice bowling, pace and bounce on that one and it was too much for Simmons who was trying to guide it to third man

LMP Simmons c †Prior b Anderson 0 (16m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

A good early blow for England after Gayle made a statement in the last over

The new batsman is Ramnaresh Sarwan...big reception from the home crowd

3.3

Anderson to Sarwan, no run, lbw appeal first ball, struck on the pads but it's going down the leg side although that's how England want to attack Sarwan early and failed to manage during the Test series

3.4

Anderson to Sarwan, 2 runs, off the mark in nice style, opens the face and guides it between backward point and cover, outfield is quick and they come back for two

3.5

Anderson to Sarwan, no run, bouncer, first of the day, and Sarwan ducks underneath...more bounce from Anderson's end

3.6

Anderson to Sarwan, no run, worked out to midwicket

Successful over from Anderson

    • JM Anderson 2-0-3-1
    • SCJ Broad 2-0-14-0
4.1

Broad to Gayle, 1 run, full outside off, goes to drive but gets a thick bottom edge which bobbles backward of point

4.2

Broad to Sarwan, 1 run, full on the stumps, pushed straight down the ground and mid-on can't get across to stop the single

4.3

Broad to Gayle, no run, well bowled, awkward bounce on off stump, takes the shoulder of the bat and goes out to backward point

4.4

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, goes for the leg-stump yorker, Gayle gets bat on it and it races past the leg slip who had no chance of stopping it standing so close

4.5

Broad to Gayle, no run, back on off stump, pushed out to short cover

4.6

Broad to Gayle, 1 run, hint of late movement into Gayle, he squirts it into the gap at midwicket and keeps the strike

    • CH Gayle 20 (19b 4x4)
    • RR Sarwan 3 (5b)
    • SCJ Broad 3-0-21-0
    • JM Anderson 2-0-3-1
5.1

Anderson to Gayle, OUT, got him! Anderson has his second as Gayle drags into his stumps, massive strike for England. That was a loose shot from the captain as he tried to guide it to third man with an angled bat and was defeated by a hint of low bounce

CH Gayle b Anderson 20 (26m 20b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Here comes another home town hero, Mr S Chanderpaul who now has a road named after him...Chanderpaul Drive - how many of those will we see today?

5.2

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, well bowled, certainly some extra bounce as well at times, Chanderpaul plays it down into the leg side

The England quicks are bowling with a scrambled seam quite a lot

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, steered off the outside edge, Strauss makes a good save as he dives to his left at second slip

    • RR Sarwan 3 (5b)
    • JM Anderson 3-1-3-2
    • SCJ Broad 3-0-21-0
6.1

Broad to Sarwan, FOUR, floaty half volley from Broad, outside off and Sarwan flays it through the off side...Broad not having a good day so far

6.2

Broad to Sarwan, no run, better length, on off stump, defended into the leg side

6.3

Broad to Sarwan, no run, full outside off again from Broad, he's feeding Sarwan's drive but this time Bopara makes a good save at extra cover

6.4

Broad to Sarwan, no run, pushed down the ground, fielded by mid-off

Not quite sure why England are bowling to Sarwan's strength here

6.5

7.4

Anderson to Sarwan, no run, touch short outside off, driven from the back foot to point

7.5

    • S Chanderpaul 3 (7b)
    • JM Anderson 4-1-6-2
    • SCJ Broad 4-0-26-0

Change of bowling, here's Steve Harmison

8.2

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, driven up to mid-off

8.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, outside off, going across Chanderpaul who leaves alone

8.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, finds the outside edge, squirted down to third man past the lone slip

8.5

9.2

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, worked off middle, picks out square leg

Anderson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, short this time and well played by Chanderpaul, he just swivelled on it and helped the ball past square leg with enough timing for a boundary

9.4

Anderson to Chanderpaul, 1 run, driven wide of mid-off, can't beat Pietersen but they get an easy single

9.5

Anderson to Sarwan, no run, shapes back into Sarwan who angles the face and plays to backward point

9.6

Anderson to Sarwan, 1 run, runs this away down to third man

A good start by England but these are West Indies' two key batsmen...now it's over to Will Luke to see how they go

End of over 10 (6 runs) West Indies 41/2 (RR: 4.10)

    • RR Sarwan 10 (19b 1x4)
    • S Chanderpaul 9 (15b 1x4)

    • SJ Harmison 1-0-3-0

10.2

10.3

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, fuller delivery and stroked out to cover

10.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off

Harmison's bowling okay so far. Pretty disciplined. But he looks like he's running in on quicksand; really labouring to the crease

10.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, on leg stump and nudged to nowhere

10.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off

End of over 11 (1 run) West Indies 42/2 (RR: 3.81)

12.3

Harmison to Sarwan, 1 run, swings this to mid-on

12.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, FOUR, edged through the vacant slip for four! Probably wouldn't have carried in fact, and I'm even inclined to think he played it deliberately. Anyway. It's four

12.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, no run, good line outside off, and left alone

12.6

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, short of a length and pull-paddled around the corner. This pitch is absurdly slow; batsmen have enough time to make a cup of tea after the bowler wangs it down

End of over 13 (6 runs) West Indies 51/2 (RR: 3.92)

    • S Chanderpaul 15 (26b 2x4)
    • RR Sarwan 14 (26b 1x4)
    • SJ Harmison 3-0-10-0
    • JM Anderson 6-1-15-2

Harmison's done something to a part of his body, possibly knee

13.1

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, goes for a drive and gets an inside edge to leg

13.2

Broad to Chanderpaul, 1 run, on his legs, flicked to fine leg - where Mascarenhas misfields. But they don't take two

Harmison's left knee seems to be causing the problems

13.3

Broad to Sarwan, 1 run, down the leg side, off his pads

13.4

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, fullish length, driven to mid-off

13.5

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, very full and driveable length. Chanderpaul bunts it back powerfully to Broad who fields it comfortably in his follow-through

Nice, tight bowling this. I've probably jinxed him now

13.6

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, and it's defended out to the off side

End of over 14 (2 runs) West Indies 53/2 (RR: 3.78)

    • RR Sarwan 15 (27b 1x4)

14.2

Harmison to Sarwan, 1 run, straighter delivery this time, nudged through midwicket for a hastily run single

    • SJ Harmison 4-0-15-0
    • SCJ Broad 5-0-28-0

Batty into the attack

15.1

Batty to Sarwan, 1 run, flattish ball on middle, stroked to mid-on

Harmison's gone off the pitch, by the way.

15.2

Batty to Chanderpaul, no run, prods forward, poking it to cover. Good length from Batty

Batty's around the wicket, as you'd expect to the left-hander

15.3

Batty to Chanderpaul, 1 run, touch shorter, rocks back and strokes it out to the off side

15.4

    • RR Sarwan 18 (31b 1x4)
    • GJ Batty 1-0-3-0
    • SJ Harmison 4-0-15-0

Harmison's still not back on the park, so it's Mascarenhas to replace him and he has two earrings in place

16.1

Mascarenhas to Sarwan, no run, short, wide but he escapes punishment thanks to the short mid-off

17.4

Batty to Sarwan, no run, on middle, and it's flicked to short midwicket

Batty to Sarwan, 2 runs, much too short but - wow! Absolutely stunning fielding from Anderson. Sarwan pulled it over midwicket and Anderson dived on the rope, saved four - and aware that the momentum might carry him and the ball over for four, flicked it back to the waiting fielder. Top stuff

17.6

Batty to Sarwan, no run, flicked to leg

End of over 18 (4 runs) West Indies 68/2 (RR: 3.77)

19.3

19.6

Batty to Chanderpaul, 1 run, nudged to leg

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, no run, turned back to the bowler

20.3

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, no run, Prior's dropped Chanderpaul. Oh dear. Oh double, triple dear. A loose slap by Chanderpaul, thin outside edge which hammered into Prior's fingers which never moved.

20.4

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, driven down the ground

20.5

Mascarenhas to Sarwan, 1 run, short of a length, punched out through cover

21.1

Batty to Chanderpaul, 1 run, skips down the pitch and strokes to Pietersen at long-off

Batty to Sarwan, SIX, shot! He timed that brilliantly. A skip down the pitch, flicking it loftily over midwicket for six

21.6

Batty to Sarwan, 1 run, flicked just wide of Collingwood at short midwicket. Only just!

End of over 22 (8 runs) West Indies 91/2 (RR: 4.13)

    • RR Sarwan 39 (50b 2x4 1x6)
    • S Chanderpaul 30 (56b 3x4)
    • GJ Batty 4-0-23-0
    • AD Mascarenhas 3-0-10-0
22.1

Mascarenhas to Sarwan, SIX, bang! Nothing complicated about that at all. He leans back and absolutely thumps it over extra cover

22.2

Mascarenhas to Sarwan, 1 run, fuller ball turned to leg

    • AD Mascarenhas 4-0-19-0
    • GJ Batty 4-0-23-0
23.1

Batty to Sarwan, 1 run, worked to leg and Anderson fields incredibly quickly. He's always been good in the outfield, but he's added a new feature to his fielding in being able to throw "on the run". Quality fielder now

23.2

    • AD Mascarenhas 4-0-19-0

24.2

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, no run, flicked back to the bowler

Jerry: "'Sarwan's batting in just a cap at the moment' - How fashions have changed! - In my day, we'd have at least worn trousers..." Very droll, Jerry

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, no run, nudged to leg but there's no timing

24.4

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, turned off his pads behind square. Well placed

    • GJ Batty 5-0-28-0
25.1

Batty to Sarwan, no run, tossed up outside off, turned to leg

25.2

Batty to Sarwan, FOUR, not quite timed this like his other boshes, but he's got enough on it for four. Skipped down the pitch and wellied it over the top for four

25.3

Batty to Sarwan, FOUR, short, back-cut down to third man for four. Immense skill. This really is a magical knock by Sarwan

25.4

Batty to Sarwan, 1 run, jumps back and strokes it to long-on

25.5

Batty to Chanderpaul, no run, flicked back to the bowler

25.6

    • GJ Batty 6-0-38-0

26.1

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, a little late on it, but nevertheless flicked it to leg

26.2

Collingwood to Sarwan, no run, that's well bowled, swinging back a touch on Sarwan who drives back to Collingwood

26.3

Harmison is back on the park and apparently fit enough to bowl. Hmm. Right.

McDonald's out in Cape Town, by the way

End of over 28 (3 runs) West Indies 124/2 (RR: 4.42)

    • RR Sarwan 62 (72b 4x4 2x6)

    • SJ Harmison 6-0-21-0
31.1

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, opens the face, runs it to backward point and it's a tight single as Collingwood takes aim and he hits Chanderpaul on the wrist with the throw

31.2

Harmison to Sarwan, 2 runs, gives himself room again and makes decent contact with a big swing through the off side, not quite middled but placed well enough for a couple out to deep cover

Harmison to Sarwan, 1 run, worked down the ground, very straight, but Pietersen at long on gets round in time to stop the second

31.4

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, slower ball on middle, nicely turned off the stumps and well placed for two...takes Chanderpaul through to his half century which is cheered loudly by the home support

31.5

Harmison to Chanderpaul, 1 run, tucked off the body down to long leg

31.6

More drinks for the batsman, but more likely instructions about the Powerplay. Anyway, here comes Ravi Bopara for a bowl

33.6

Bopara to Chanderpaul, 1 run, worked neatly off the stumps out to deep square-leg

Time for the ball change

End of over 34 (8 runs) West Indies 156/2 (RR: 4.58)

    • S Chanderpaul 54 (91b 3x4)
    • RR Sarwan 74 (87b 4x4 2x6)
    • RS Bopara 1-0-2-0
    • PD Collingwood 5-0-19-0

The Powerplay has been taken...strap yourselves in. And that decision leads to a change of bowling with Stuart Broad replacing Collingwood...oh what's this, Broad can't bowl yet because he was off the field. So it's Anderson with the ball, what a waste of time this last few minutes has been

34.1

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, down the leg side, takes the pad and Prior makes the save

Anderson to Chanderpaul, 1 run, full outside leg stump, worked into the gap at midwicket

Three deep fielders all on the leg side

34.4

Anderson to Sarwan, OUT, and Anderson strikes, Sarwan started to shuffle around the crease but the bowler held his nerve and an attempted drive loops to mid-off on the edge of the circle...very important breakthrough for England

RR Sarwan c Collingwood b Anderson 74 (127m 89b 4x4 2x6) SR: 83.14

Now then, how will that wicket impact West Indies' Powerplay...it's not always easy for the new batsman. Meanwhile, they are having drinks

Pollard the new batsman

34.5

Anderson to Pollard, no run, defended into the off side

34.6

Anderson to Pollard, no run, driven on the up out to cover on the edge of the circle

End of over 35 (1 run) West Indies 157/3 (RR: 4.48)

    • S Chanderpaul 55 (93b 3x4)
    • JM Anderson 7-1-16-3
    • RS Bopara 1-0-2-0
35.1

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, goes for the cut, ball keeps a little low and he misses

35.2

Broad to Chanderpaul, FOUR, opens his shoulders, lofted high over mid-on and goes two bounces over the rope

35.3

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, slower-ball bouncer outside off, Chanderpaul misses his cut

35.4

Broad to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, worked off the stumps, placed between square and long leg with the right power for two...Broad isn't happy

35.5

35.6

Broad to Pollard, 1 run, tucked off middle stump out to midwicket who is on the edge of the circle

Anderson to Pollard, 1 run, some late swing as Anderson goes very full, driven powerfully down to mid-off

36.2

36.3

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, and again, this time he swings hard to midwicket

36.4

Anderson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, comes round the wicket, Chanderpaul goes over the top of square leg for another boundary...he plays these overs so well

36.5

Anderson to Chanderpaul, 1 wide, back over the wicket, strays down the leg side, pressure telling on Anderson

36.5

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, tries to sweep this, taken on the toe of the bat and it runs behind to the keeper

36.6

Anderson to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, low full toss on the toes, worked out to deep midwicket where Bopara fumbles and they come back for two...which they always doing anyway

End of over 37 (12 runs) West Indies 177/3 (RR: 4.78)

    • S Chanderpaul 72 (103b 6x4)
    • KA Pollard 2 (4b)
    • JM Anderson 8-1-28-3
    • SCJ Broad 6-0-36-0
37.1

Broad to Pollard, 1 leg bye, big shout from Broad, but he bowled it from very wide and it's going down the leg side...ball flies to backward point

37.2

Broad to Chanderpaul, FOUR, the field is set deep on the leg side so Chanderpaul goes over mid-off, just beating a great leap from Collingwood and collects another boundary

Collingwood landed heavily on his left knee, he's in some pain at the moment

37.3

Broad to Chanderpaul, 1 wide, goes down the leg side, Broad not happy with the call but he just needs to get on and bowl

37.3

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, chopped away into the off side, can't beat point

Broad having a word with Aleem Dar, he's always been warned this tour so needs to be careful

37.4

Broad to Chanderpaul, FOUR, what a shot from Chanderpaul, that is amazing, he brings out the reverse sweep and hammers a good length ball past point...eat your heart out Kevin Pietersen

37.5

Broad to Chanderpaul, 1 wide, dragged down wide outside off this time, Broad's getting himself in a real state at the moment...he's not having a great day

37.5

Broad to Chanderpaul, 1 wide, he's losing it here, very wide of off stump again, Chanderpaul can barely reach it

37.5

Broad to Chanderpaul, 1 wide, third in a row, goes for the slower ball and it's too wide again...Broad not sure what to do and major problems here for Andrew Strauss

37.5

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, wide of the stumps, but close enough for the drive but backward point prevents any runs

37.6

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, opens the face and runs it to short third man...ends a long and expensive over

Well, it's now over to Will Luke for the conclusion to this innings to see how many West Indies will get

End of over 38 (13 runs) West Indies 190/3 (RR: 5.00)

    • S Chanderpaul 80 (108b 8x4)
    • KA Pollard 2 (5b)
    • SCJ Broad 7-0-48-0
    • JM Anderson 8-1-28-3

I'm sensing Chanderpaul is on the verge of something really, really special here. This'll be a brilliant last 12 overs

38.1

Anderson to Pollard, no run, swing and a miss outside off

38.2

Anderson to Pollard, 2 runs, very short and pulled through midwicket

38.3

38.5

Anderson to Chanderpaul, (no ball) 1 run, full toss above waist height, but Chanderpaul's pulled it - straight down Harmison's throat at fine leg! What a catch from the big man, who keeps himself inside the line. But, drama here - Chanderpaul's asking the umpire why that wasn't a no-ball, as it was above waist height. And he signals it was a no-ball! Blimey. Drama. Correct decision made. Harmison's catch was an absolute snorter taking it well over his head to save six

38.5

Anderson to Pollard, 1 leg bye, goes for a pull but can't time it

38.6

Anderson to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, pushed out to the off side for a hasty two

    • KA Pollard 7 (10b)
    • JM Anderson 9-1-37-3
    • SCJ Broad 7-0-48-0

Mascarenhas now

39.1

Mascarenhas to Pollard, 1 run, pulled into the deep and Anderson pulls off another quality save, getting his body behind the line and scooping it up

39.2

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, FOUR, four! Another brilliant reverse-sweep for four down to third man (or fine-leg...depending on your view). And he hammered it!

39.3

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, goes for a back cut

39.4

Mascarenhas to Pollard, OUT, got him! Powerfully lofted but straight to Pietersen at long-on who takes a fine, tumbling catch to his right

Ten overs remaining. Here's Collingwood

40.1

Bravo now

40.4

Collingwood to Bravo, no run, solid forward defensive

    • PD Collingwood 6-0-25-0
    • AD Mascarenhas 5-0-26-1
41.1

Mascarenhas to Bravo, no run, good length, he goes back to cut but it's too close to him

41.2

Mascarenhas to Bravo, no run, stroked back to the bowler

41.3

Mascarenhas to Bravo, no run, pushed just to the bowler's left

41.4

Mascarenhas to Bravo, 1 run, crashed out to the off side

41.5

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, a leg-side delivery flicked - guess? - to the leg side. Mascarenhas sets off in hot pursuit but can't prevent the single

Why are pursuits nearly always termed hot? Why not tepid, or cool?

41.6

Mascarenhas to Bravo, no run, down the leg side but he escapes being clattered for six, as he should have been, as he can only roll his wrists on it to send the ball to short fine leg

End of over 42 (2 runs) West Indies 215/4 (RR: 5.11)

    • DJ Bravo 6 (9b)
    • S Chanderpaul 91 (117b 9x4)

    • PD Collingwood 6-0-25-0
42.1

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, bunted to deep mid-on

42.2

Collingwood to Bravo, 1 run, short and wide and Bravo cracks this off the back foot quite extravagantly, just passed Bopara at cover

42.3

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, stroked to mid-off who shies at the stumps, misses by a country mile, and they get an overthrow

That was Strauss who ballsed-up there, by the way.

42.5

Collingwood to Bravo, 1 run, nicely squirted down to third man

42.6

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, full toss worked to mid-on

Chanderpaul has 8000 runs in ODIs and is only the third West Indian to do so, behind Des Haynes and some chap called Lara?

43.1

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, flicked around the corner but there's no timing

43.2

Mascarenhas to Bravo, SIX, beautifully lofted over long-off. Really elegant, with a full swing of the bat. The ball, however, was sitting up and literally begging to be hit

43.3

43.4

43.5

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, a single to mid-on

    • AD Mascarenhas 7-0-38-1

Chanders is on the verge of yet another hundred. He's looking a little bit weary out there at the moment, but nothing that three figures won't sort out.

44.1

Collingwood to Bravo, 1 run, on the off stump, turned to Shah at long-on

Chanders on strike now

44.2

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, outside off and stroked to long-off

It's tip-and-run cricket here

44.3

Collingwood to Bravo, 1 run, flicked through midwicket

Chanderpaul on 99

44.4

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, no run, slower ball, wide of the off stump and the crowd all deflate their cheers as he can't get a single

44.5

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, flicked to leg and there's his hundred! His 10th ODI hundred and he's done it at his home ground who, to a man and woman, are standing. It's quite a sight

126 balls for that sublime hundred. What a total and utter ledge he is.

44.6

Collingwood to Bravo, 1 run, goes inside out and drives out to long-off

End of over 45 (5 runs) West Indies 237/4 (RR: 5.26)

45.1

Mascarenhas to Bravo, no run, well wide of the off stump

45.2

Mascarenhas to Bravo, OUT, bouncer and pulled over midwicket - but what a catch by Paul Collingwood! Bravo absolutely nailed this pull and Collingwood back-peddled, taking the ball with both hands over his head while falling backwards. And he does well to stay inside the rope. Outstanding skill

DJ Bravo c Collingwood b Mascarenhas 19 (22m 20b 0x4 1x6) SR: 95.00

45.3

Mascarenhas to Ramdin, no run, dropped out to the off side

46.1

Collingwood to Ramdin, OUT, well that's a bit of a poor shot really. He stood with both feet pointing down the pitch and tried to scoop it very fine over the keeper's head, but could only spoon it straight to a short fine-leg

D Ramdin c Harmison b Collingwood 1 (2m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

12.55pm West Indies just losing their way here. And, as I write, a very blustery shower scurries across the ground and the covers are hurriedly dragged on

1.00pm And we're back again. It's still spitting, but nothing too scary

46.2

Collingwood to Sammy, no run, straight ball worked to mid-on

46.3

Collingwood to Sammy, no run, good, straight ball on off stump which squares him up a bit

1.08pm We're back again. Howdy.

1.01pm The groundsmen are ready, they're under starter's orders - and they're off! The drizzle has turned into another heavy shower which has forced them off. Shouldn't be longer than five minutes though

46.4

Collingwood to Sammy, 2 runs, flicked through midwicket for a couple

46.5

Collingwood to Sammy, 1 run, banged to long-off

46.6

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, FOUR, brilliant. His third reverse-swept four and he plays it so well

End of over 47 (7 runs) West Indies 245/6 (RR: 5.21)

    • S Chanderpaul 104 (127b 10x4)
    • DJG Sammy 3 (4b)
    • PD Collingwood 9-0-44-1
    • AD Mascarenhas 8-0-39-2
47.1

Mascarenhas to Sammy, no run, firmly stroked to mid-off

Chanderpaul's struggling a bit and wants a runner

47.2

Mascarenhas to Sammy, 1 run, a full toss outside off but he toe-ends it and busts his bat. A replacement is called for

47.3

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, another reverse-hit, more of a paddle this time. And mistimed, too. Super attempt though

47.4

Mascarenhas to Sammy, FOUR, muscularly slapped! Wow - that nearly killed Mascarenhas. He stood tall and just slapped it past him. No chance of catching that

47.5

Mascarenhas to Sammy, 1 run, another powerful and crunching bunt to long-on

47.6

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, dug out to the off side and he steals a single

End of over 48 (8 runs) West Indies 253/6 (RR: 5.27)

    • S Chanderpaul 106 (129b 10x4)
    • DJG Sammy 9 (8b 1x4)
    • AD Mascarenhas 9-0-47-2
    • PD Collingwood 9-0-44-1

No runner yet for Chanders, though I think Bravo is padded up and raring to go. And here he is.

48.1

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, nudged to leg

48.2

Collingwood to Sammy, 2 runs, whipped to long-on and they get two

48.3

Collingwood to Sammy, OUT, got him. Good, straight off-cutter which raps him on the back pad as he attempted to swing it over midwicket

DJG Sammy lbw b Collingwood 11 (17m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

48.4

Collingwood to Miller, OUT, bowled him! Collingwood's on a hat-trick here, bowling Miller with a lovely little off-cutter which kept a touch low. Poor stroke though from Miller trying to cut it

NO Miller b Collingwood 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies have really fallen away in the last eight overs. Chanderpaul aside, they've lost the momentum. Now then. Can Collingwood grab a hat-trick?

48.5

Collingwood to Edwards, 1 run, outside off and flicked to leg, No hat-trick this time

48.6

Collingwood to Chanderpaul, 1 run, flipped to midwicket

End of over 49 (5 runs) West Indies 258/8 (RR: 5.26)

    • S Chanderpaul 108 (131b 10x4)
    • FH Edwards 1 (1b)
    • PD Collingwood 10-0-49-3
    • AD Mascarenhas 9-0-47-2

Great effort from Collingwood. 3 for 49 from his 10 overs. Last over of the innings

49.1

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, very wide indeed and Chanderpaul, a little crippled with cramp in the legs, can only just reach it

49.2

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, attempts to crash this over extra cover but ends up slicing it to third man

Chanderpaul is really struggling. He can barely stand, let alone walk! But he soldiers on regardless

49.3

Mascarenhas to Edwards, 1 run, stands tall and pulls it powerfully into the ground. Mascarenhas swooped and tried to get a finger on it as the ball shattered the non-striker's stumps, but couldn't quite manage it

Mascarenhas is appealing and it's gone to the third umpire, but it's so hard for him to tell if he's got a finger on it. We're still waiting.

More rain

49.4

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, 1 run, flicked to leg

Chanderpaul can barely stand up, poor bloke. Heavy rain now! Please don't let them go off, with just two balls to go. Please

49.5

Mascarenhas to Edwards, no run, plays and misses outside off

49.6

Mascarenhas to Edwards, 1 run, carved out to cover just for a single

Well West Indies' innings has ended in rather a damp squib and England will be rather pleased. They restricted them very nicely in the last 10 overs, despite Chanderpaul's brilliant hundred. It really is hammering down with rain as the covers are dragged on. Join us in 30 minutes (or less - we're not sure) for England's response

End of over 50 (6 runs) West Indies 264/8

    • FH Edwards 3 (4b)
    • S Chanderpaul 112 (134b 10x4)
    • AD Mascarenhas 10-0-53-2
    • PD Collingwood 10-0-49-3
