England won by 9 wickets (with 9 balls remaining) (D/L method)
29 March 2009 (50-over match)

Broad to Gayle, OUT, 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.

CH Gayle c †Prior b Broad 46 (54m 39b 3x4 5x6) SR: 117.94

West Indies 72/1   LMP Simmons 26* (37b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.4-0-17-1

Flintoff to Sarwan, 1 run, OUT, 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

LMP Simmons run out 29 (63m 39b 3x4 1x6) SR: 74.35

West Indies 76/2   RR Sarwan 1* (5b)   A Flintoff 4.5-0-23-0

Flintoff to Sarwan, OUT, 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

RR Sarwan b Flintoff 6 (14m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

West Indies 83/3   S Chanderpaul 2* (1b)   A Flintoff 5.5-0-29-1

Mascarenhas to Ramdin, OUT, 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

D Ramdin c Flintoff b Mascarenhas 26 (40m 29b 3x4 0x6) SR: 89.65

West Indies 126/4   S Chanderpaul 19* (35b)   AD Mascarenhas 3.2-0-13-1

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, OUT, 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!

S Chanderpaul c †Prior b Mascarenhas 27 (121m 53b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.94

West Indies 143/5   DJ Bravo 7* (18b)   AD Mascarenhas 6.2-0-19-2

Mascarenhas to Pollard, OUT, 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

KA Pollard c Flintoff b Mascarenhas 0 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 145/6   DJ Bravo 9* (25b)   AD Mascarenhas 7.4-1-20-3

Broad to Sammy, OUT, 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

DJG Sammy b Broad 6 (21m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

West Indies 173/7   DJ Bravo 31* (46b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 6.4-0-36-2

Anderson to Edwards, OUT, 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

FH Edwards c Collingwood b Anderson 0 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 224/8   DJ Bravo 68* (69b 7x4 2x6)   JM Anderson 8.5-1-38-1

Broad to Bravo, OUT, 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

DJ Bravo c sub (IR Bell) b Broad 69 (143m 72b 7x4 2x6) SR: 95.83

West Indies 225/9   LS Baker 0* (0b)   SCJ Broad 8.2-0-50-3
