3.5

Gayle to Pietersen, FOUR, very full, practically a yorker on off stump but Pietersen has somehow squirted that past point for four! The ball was much quicker, and Pietersen just lent on it to ease the ball to the boundary. Top shot!

3.6

Gayle to Pietersen, 1 run, held back a touch, KP taps the ball down to long on to collect a single and keep the strike

England 41/1   KP Pietersen 5* (2b 1x4)
4.1

Miller to Pietersen, no run, close! Big shout first ball as KP presses half forward and is wrapped on the pads. Nope, big inside edge on that. He didn't look all that comfortable though

4.2

Miller to Pietersen, 2 runs, fuller on off stump, KP stays leg side of the ball to smash it down to long off for a couple

4.3

Miller to Pietersen, 1 run, and again, he stays inside the line to work the ball into the off side

4.6

Miller to Pietersen, no run, and KP almost falls over his own feet as Miller fires in a quicker one at his pads. Gets the bat down just in time though

England 51/1   KP Pietersen 8* (6b 1x4)
5.4

Rampaul to Pietersen, 1 run, leg stump line and KP whips to midwicket

5.6

Rampaul to Pietersen, no run, Rampaul drags the length back and the ball spits up off a length, somewhat surprising the batsman. No harm done though

England 60/1   KP Pietersen 9* (8b 1x4)
6.6

Miller to Pietersen, 2 runs, just a bit too short and KP rocks back to hammer the ball into the covers, and some very sharp running gets him two

England 71/2   KP Pietersen 11* (9b 1x4)
7.2

Sammy to Pietersen, 1 run, floaty delivery on off stump and Pietersen drives hard out to long off

7.4

Sammy to Pietersen, no run, great line as KP is tucked up by a ball angling in to him. Not much he can do with that

7.5

Sammy to Pietersen, no run, and again, Sammy is attacking the stumps here, bowling a very straight line and getting the ball to snake in to the batsman just a little

7.6

Sammy to Pietersen, 1 run, KP uses what little width is on offer to collect a run infront of point on the off side

England 75/2   KP Pietersen 13* (13b 1x4)
8.1

Miller to Pietersen, no run, tossed up on middle and leg. KP backs away to try to make some room and drops the ball into the off side but can't find the placement

8.2

Miller to Pietersen, 1 run, Pietersen is down on one knee and sweeping, they run a sharp single as the fielder comes in from square leg. There's an appeal for the run out, but Collingwood was well in

8.4

Miller to Pietersen, 2 runs, just slightly short on off stump, Pietersen rocks back to flay the ball through the covers and they sprint two

8.5

Miller to Pietersen, 1 run, Pietersen comes down the track but Miller sees him coming, spearing in a quicker ball on leg stump. They collect a single all the same

England 80/2   KP Pietersen 17* (17b 1x4)
9.1

Sammy to Pietersen, 1 run, pulled away in the air to deep midwicket, but falling short of the fielder

9.5

Sammy to Pietersen, SIX, short again and, extraordinarily, Pietersen has pulled that one-handed and the ball has sailed over the ropes at square leg! That was hit into the breeze as well, what a shot! Sahil is mesmerized!

9.6

Sammy to Pietersen, OUT, Gone! Sammy is jubilant as Pietersen is caught on the midwicket boundary attempting a repeat of the shot! It's a shouting, fist-pumping celebration, you can tell how much that wicket means to West Indies

KP Pietersen c Sarwan b Sammy 24 (20b 1x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

England 88/4   KP Pietersen 24 (20b 1x4 1x6)
