Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

147.2

Benn to Broad, 2 runs, Broad lunges down - he's about 9ft 1in so it takes him a while - and sweep-paddles it to fine leg

147.3

Benn to Broad, no run, firmly forward, smothering the spin

147.4

Benn to Broad, no run, forward onto the front foot, meets the ball and turns it with a flick of the wrists

147.5

Benn to Broad, FOUR, pure elegance from Broad, but a horrible full toss which got what it deserved

147.6

Benn to Broad, FOUR, four more but a little fortuitously. A real slog from outside off, hitting "under" the ball and only just over mid-off. But...it's four all the same

England 479/7   SCJ Broad 10* (5b 2x4)

148.2

Nash to Broad, 1 run, this keeps low but Broad keeps his eye on it, punching it out to the off side

148.4

Nash to Broad, no run, that's a much better ball, on the off stump and shaping back into Broad

148.5

Nash to Broad, no run, a touch too straight, allowing him to flick to leg

148.6

Nash to Broad, no run, angled to point

England 482/7   SCJ Broad 11* (9b 2x4)

149.4

Powell to Broad, no run, Stuart Broad - I don't know why I typed his full name - is back in his crease and defending with the straightest of bats

149.5

Powell to Broad, no run, lets this one pass by the off stump

149.6

Powell to Broad, no run, stroked off the back foot

England 483/7   SCJ Broad 11* (12b 2x4)

150.3

Taylor to Broad, no run, calmly pushed out off the back foot

150.4

Taylor to Broad, no run, fuller delivery on the off stump which he defends

150.5

Taylor to Broad, no run, on the off stump - very full - and Broad, with no foot movement, digs it out

150.6

Taylor to Broad, no run, pushed out off the back foot

England 484/7   SCJ Broad 11* (16b 2x4)

151.3

Powell to Broad, no run, ooh that's a fine stroke from broad to a wide, full delivery, but it's cracked straight to cover

151.4

Powell to Broad, no run, another defensive by Broad

151.5

Powell to Broad, FOUR, a huge, drunken cacophony rings around Antigua as Broad cracks this off the back foot for four. Short, wide - a very poor ball really - and Broad stood tall and cracked it square for four

151.6

Powell to Broad, 1 run, good cricket. Tucked off his hip and he steals the strike

England 490/7   SCJ Broad 16* (20b 3x4)

152.1

Taylor to Broad, no run, lovely delivery by Taylor, just holding it back a touch and rolling his fingers over the ball. Broad's beaten

152.2

Taylor to Broad, FOUR, he follows up a slower ball with a really spicy delivery which climbs into Broad's ribs - a good effort, considering Broad is nearing 6ft 7in - and he inside edges it over his stumps

152.3

Taylor to Broad, no run, laced on the front foot but straight to mid-off

152.4

Taylor to Broad, no run, oh fine bowling - really fine bowling! Short of a length, but full enough to lure Broad into a drive, and it cuts a touch off the seam to beat his airy-fairy drive

152.5

Taylor to Broad, 1 run, on the pull, guided to deep midwicket

England 495/7   SCJ Broad 21* (25b 4x4)

153.1

Powell to Broad, no run, right behind this, clunked out to cover

153.2

Powell to Broad, no run, driven out to the off side

153.3

Powell to Broad, no run, short of a length, goes for a pull but gets an inside edge

153.4

Powell to Broad, no run, left alone outside off

153.5

Powell to Broad, no run, punched off the back foot

153.6

Powell to Broad, 1 run, nudged out to the off side and he steals a single - and the strike! Again. Poor Collingwood's having to wait for his hundred here

England 496/7   SCJ Broad 22* (31b 4x4)

154.1

Taylor to Broad, no run, that's a great ball! Taylor's in the middle of a fine spell here, cutting the ball away from Broad and he's getting them to spit off the pitch too. Terrific skill

154.2

Taylor to Broad, no run, holds its line on Broad who jabs it out to the off side

154.3

Taylor to Broad, no run, swings into the leg stump

154.4

Taylor to Broad, no run, quicker, skiddier delivery which hits the "centre line" of the football pitch and scuds through. No front arm for Taylor here, to confuse and perplex the batsman

154.5

Taylor to Broad, 1 run, again no leading arm by Taylor as Broad takes a quick single to Smith at mid-off - bad decision! Smith's one of the better West Indian fielders and, had the throw hit, he'd have been tight

England 497/7   SCJ Broad 23* (36b 4x4)

155.2

Powell to Broad, no run, a wild, woolly swish of the bat outside off

155.3

Powell to Broad, no run, good delivery on off stump, holding its line

155.4

Powell to Broad, no run, flashed to cover

155.5

Powell to Broad, SIX, good grief, that is an elegant and classy six by Broad. A slower ball and he thwanged it straight back over Powell's head. All timing and elegance

155.6

Powell to Broad, 1 run, inside edge there, though

England 506/7   SCJ Broad 30* (41b 4x4 1x6)

156.1

Taylor to Broad, no run, too much width outside off stump. No contact there

156.2

Taylor to Broad, no run, better line, tighter to the top of off, and defended

156.3

Taylor to Broad, no run, just back of a length, and defended off the back foot. Might have rolled his fingers on that one too

156.4

Taylor to Broad, no run

156.5

Taylor to Broad, 2 runs, width, just enough, and whisked low through the slips. Gayle gets a hand on it to slow its progress, and Ramdin tidies up

156.6

Taylor to Broad, 1 leg bye, slower ball yorker, but just the wrong line. Clips the pads, and Collingwood is again denied the strike by his upstart younger partner

England 509/7   SCJ Broad 32* (47b 4x4 1x6)

157.1

Powell to Broad, FOUR, too full, too straight, and thwacked cleanly through mid-on. Top striking young'un

157.2

Powell to Broad, no run, fuller length, and defended on off stump

157.3

Powell to Broad, FOUR, Powell comes in off a shortened run, but it makes no difference. Too much width, and that is flogged behind point

157.4

Powell to Broad, 1 run, unconventional but effective. An ugly hoick takes a top-edge and skews away to third man

157.6

Powell to Broad, no run, tapped out to point and finally Collingwood starts an over

England 519/7   SCJ Broad 41* (52b 6x4 1x6)

159.1

Hinds to Broad, 1 run, a measured sweep, and Colly is on strike with five balls to face this over. Surely ...

159.4

Hinds to Broad, 2 runs, tickled round the corner, and Broad hustles through for two

159.5

Hinds to Broad, OUT, the declaration must surely be imminent now. An ambitious drive through the covers, a grazed edge to the keeper, and Broad goes for a well-crafted innings

SCJ Broad c †Ramdin b Hinds 44 (54m 55b 6x4 1x6) SR: 80.00

England 529/8   SCJ Broad 44 (55b 6x4 1x6)
