England tour of West Indies, 3rd ODI: West Indies v England at Bridgetown, Mar 27, 2009
West Indies won by 8 wickets (with 176 balls remaining) (D/L method)
27 March 2009 (50-over match)

Edwards to Strauss, OUT, got him! That's a superb take from Gayle. Strauss went for a hook but it was too quick and he skied it over the slips. But Gayle, running back 10 or 11 paces, took a fine catch over his head

AJ Strauss c Gayle b Edwards 2 (25m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

England 15/1   RS Bopara 8* (20b 1x4)   FH Edwards 3.2-1-6-1

Edwards to Bopara, OUT, that is awful from Bopara. Excellent bowling, mind - nice, quick and aggressive and Bopara tried to hook it but it got big on him. The ball made its limp, feeble way straight to mid-on

RS Bopara c Sarwan b Edwards 10 (27m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

England 17/2   KP Pietersen 0* (0b)   FH Edwards 3.4-1-8-2

Bravo to Pietersen, OUT, short, Pietersen climbs into the hook with two men back. Pollard is under a swirling skier, takes it with aplomb, and now England are in deep, deep doo-doo

KP Pietersen c Pollard b Bravo 3 (27m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

England 41/3   OA Shah 16* (18b 3x4)   DJ Bravo 0.1-0-0-1

Baker to Shah, OUT, short, wide, slapped ... straight to backward point! A nothing sort of shot from Shah and he's paid the price, as Darren Sammy swoops low with his big hands.

OA Shah c Sammy b Baker 17 (34m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 68.00

England 42/4   PD Collingwood 0* (1b)   LS Baker 6.3-3-17-1

Bravo to Flintoff, OUT, short, leg-sided, Flintoff has a swish, and whaddaya know, he's lofted it straight to Fidel Edwards at fine leg!

A Flintoff c Edwards b Bravo 0 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 43/5   PD Collingwood 1* (4b)   DJ Bravo 2-0-2-2

Bravo to Collingwood, OUT, massive appeal, looked to be swinging late, and potentially down the leg-side, but very full indeed. Bucknor ponders for an age, which is always a worry for the batsman, and sure enough, up goes the finger!

PD Collingwood lbw b Bravo 6 (29m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 54/6   MJ Prior 6* (12b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 3.5-0-9-3

Pollard to Prior, OUT, oh that is truly village. Short and wide and slapped straight to point. Thoughtless stroke

MJ Prior c Sammy b Pollard 7 (37m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.81

England 68/7   AD Mascarenhas 12* (24b 2x4)   KA Pollard 0.3-0-1-1

Pollard to Broad, OUT, got him! A little off-cutter which squares up Broad, whose feet were firmly concreted, and it scooted through low to the keeper

SCJ Broad c †Ramdin b Pollard 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 68/8   AD Mascarenhas 12* (24b 2x4)   KA Pollard 0.5-0-1-2

Bravo to Batty, OUT, terrific catch by Sammy, diving at extra cover as Batty's extravagant heave is mistimed

GJ Batty c Sammy b Bravo 17 (64m 47b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.17

England 116/9   AD Mascarenhas 35* (70b 3x4)   DJ Bravo 6.2-1-18-4

Edwards to Mascarenhas, OUT, goes for a hook but top-edges it to the running square leg - another hook shot goes all wrong for England

AD Mascarenhas c Bravo b Edwards 36 (96m 76b 3x4 0x6) SR: 47.36

England 117/10   JM Anderson 0* (1b)   FH Edwards 8.3-1-28-3
