Played at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados (neutral venue)
16 May 2010 (20-over match)

Tait to Lumb, OUT, Gone! Tait strikes in his first over! It was pitched up, taking Lumb somewhat by surprise. He whipped meatily to leg, getting a good connection to the shot, but hit it uppishly and straight to a wide-ish mid on, who clung on gratefully!

MJ Lumb c DJ Hussey b Tait 2 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 7/1   C Kieswetter 5* (7b)   SW Tait 0.5-0-4-1

Smith to Pietersen, OUT, Pietersen goes! Smith strikes! The batsman was on the charge straight away, looking to hit the ball into orbit down the ground. He hit too far across the line though, with the ball turning from leg to off, getting underneath it. Long off circled beneath the chance, setting himself and holding on to a swirling chance

KP Pietersen c Warner b Smith 47 (59m 31b 4x4 1x6) SR: 151.61

England 118/2   C Kieswetter 61* (44b 7x4 2x6)   SPD Smith 1.1-0-7-1

Johnson to Kieswetter, OUT, what on earth happened there? Kieswetter gave himself acres of space as he backed away to leg, with Johnson coming round the wicket, and the bowler simply speared one in full and straight. Kieswetter must've been fooled by the angle, because he didn't even try to hit that. Just left alone, and the ball made a mess of the stumps.

C Kieswetter b Johnson 63 (72m 49b 7x4 2x6) SR: 128.57

England 121/3   PD Collingwood 1* (1b)   MG Johnson 3.1-0-25-1
