England won by 26 runs
3 April 2009 (50-over match)
1.1

Rampaul to Strauss, OUT, 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

AJ Strauss c Bravo b Rampaul 3 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

England 8/1   RS Bopara 4* (3b 1x4)   R Rampaul 0.1-0-0-1
15.2

Benn to Pietersen, OUT, 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

KP Pietersen c Sammy b Benn 48 (62m 48b 4x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

England 88/2   RS Bopara 33* (40b 3x4 1x6)   SJ Benn 2.2-0-13-1
18.1

Pollard to Bopara, OUT, 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

RS Bopara c †Ramdin b Pollard 44 (81m 49b 3x4 2x6) SR: 89.79

England 104/3   OA Shah 4* (8b)   KA Pollard 1.1-0-9-1
19.2

Benn to Shah, OUT, 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

OA Shah c Simmons b Benn 6 (14m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 107/4   PD Collingwood 1* (3b)   SJ Benn 4.2-0-19-2
20.5

Pollard to Flintoff, OUT, 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

A Flintoff c Chanderpaul b Pollard 3 (4m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 112/5   PD Collingwood 3* (6b)   KA Pollard 2.5-0-14-2
