15,16,17,18,19 February 2009 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Harmison to Gayle, OUT, a half-volley outside off which Gayle tries to carve through the off side, but he can't quite lift it over Anderson at mid-off who holds onto a decent catch

CH Gayle c Anderson b Harmison 30 (42m 32b 5x4 1x6) SR: 93.75

West Indies 45/1   DS Smith 4* (26b 1x4)   SJ Harmison 0.4-0-12-1

Swann to Smith, OUT, tossed up on middle-and-leg with a touch of drift and Smith goes for a huge slog over long-on and he's bowled! Poor, impetuous stroke by Smith having played so well for the first hour

DS Smith b Swann 38 (130m 90b 7x4 0x6) SR: 42.22

West Indies 109/2   DBL Powell 18* (57b 2x4)   GP Swann 4.2-1-12-1

Swann to Powell, OUT, got him! Lovely piece of bowling and a fine, smart catch by Collingwood. Classical off-spinner's delivery which spins on Powell, who came forward to defend, the ball taking a thick outside edge to Collingwood's left. He rolled and tumbled and got both hands to it

DBL Powell c Collingwood b Swann 22 (129m 86b 2x4 0x6) SR: 25.58

West Indies 130/3   RR Sarwan 13* (30b 2x4)   GP Swann 9.1-4-16-2

Flintoff to Hinds, OUT, but he's gone this time - Hinds' patience runs out. Angled across the left hander, he couldn't resist having a little nibble at it and Prior took a good catch low to his left

RO Hinds c †Prior b Flintoff 27 (91m 72b 3x4 1x6) SR: 37.50

West Indies 200/4   RR Sarwan 54* (91b 9x4 1x6)   A Flintoff 12.2-2-42-1

Broad to Chanderpaul, OUT, got him! That only just carried through to Prior who scooped it up low off his bootlaces. It was full, outside off and Chanderpaul couldn't resist a drive, feathering it through to the keeper

S Chanderpaul c †Prior b Broad 1 (6m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

West Indies 201/5   RR Sarwan 54* (91b 9x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 7.4-3-5-1

Swann to Sarwan, OUT, Swann's done it again! A loose shot from Sarwan who is rightly furious with himself - he's done a Pietersen and tried to get to his ton with a maximum. He skipped down the pitch, tried to clobber Swann over the top but miscued it to Flintoff at short mid-on

RR Sarwan c Flintoff b Swann 94 (196m 133b 14x4 1x6) SR: 70.67

West Indies 251/6   BP Nash 9* (42b 1x4)   GP Swann 20.3-6-52-3

Swann to Ramdin, OUT, he's caught-and-bowled! The meekest of full-tosses is met with the meekest of prods, and Swann takes one of the simplest catches to his right - and he's on a hat-trick!

D Ramdin c & b Swann 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 251/7   BP Nash 9* (42b 1x4)   GP Swann 20.4-6-52-4

Flintoff to Nash, OUT, draws Nash into a loose stroke outside off, just following it without any foot movement, and Collingwood takes a comfortable catch at second slip, low to his right

BP Nash c Collingwood b Flintoff 18 (113m 81b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

West Indies 278/8   JE Taylor 14* (32b 2x4)   A Flintoff 13.2-2-43-2

Swann to Benn, OUT, five wickets for Swann here as he raps Benn plumb in front. Benn knew it, Swann knew it and the umpire also knew it

SJ Benn lbw b Swann 0 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 279/9   JE Taylor 14* (34b 2x4)   GP Swann 23.2-7-55-5

Flintoff to Taylor, OUT, and he's got him. Taylor goes for another pull, as he should in this situation, but skies it back to Flintoff

JE Taylor c & b Flintoff 19 (69m 37b 3x4 0x6) SR: 51.35

West Indies 285/10   FH Edwards 1* (3b)   A Flintoff 14.2-3-47-3
