    13.3 that's the breakthrough! Short and nasty late lift, Cook was rushed into the pull shot and a steepling top-edge could have been taken by any of three men converging at short backward square. Bravo took responsibility, and made no mistake 47/1
    24.2 the breakthrough for West Indies, and it's the golden arm of Dwayne Smith that does it again. A full delivery on middle, Prior plays across the line and is struck on the pad. Nigel Llong is quick to raise his finger and a one-day innings from Prior again stalls in the 30s again. Replays show the ball would have clipped leg stump 96/2
    41.6 well, that was on the cards to be honest. Shah slaps it hard to Gayle on the edge of the circle at cover and Bell has already raced up the pitch for a single...Gayle just has to lob the ball towards Samuels at the stumps and Bell is out by half a pitch. So much for these two running well together 177/4
    36.6 got him, and that's a huge moment for West Indies! Pietersen was bound to go for it sooner or later - he went for it sooner, slashing a wild drive to Samuels leaping above his head at backward point. 148/3
    49.5 all over, Anderson has a waft without making contact, Ramdin takes the ball and is already walking in so when Shah tries to steal the bye it's an easy throw and Shah is well short 225/10
    43.6 that's comprehensive, Collingwood gives himself room and doesn't make contact, which leaves his stumps exposed and Edwards is straight enough to take advantage. Big wicket for West Indies as England lose their way 186/5
    45.6 cleaned up again, Edwards keeping it simple and effective. Slightly short of yorker length but Mascarenhas had already decided to open his shoulders and didn't make contact. The value of having a strike bowler is showing here 199/6
    47.2 another one for Edwards, the short ball does the damage this time as Plunkett gets a thin top edge as tries to launch into a pull. Ramdin takes the catch with ease and it's deserved reward for Edwards 209/7
    47.4 brilliant from Fidel, 94mph, regulation outside through to Ramdin hands Edwards his fifth wicket and it only took him three balls to rough up Broad and give him another lesson in international cricket 210/8
    48.6 another one goes, Panesar swings across the line and is taken on the boot by a very full delivery and that was heading straight for middle stump...this has been a fairly horrendous demise from England, but is anyone really that surprised? 216/9

    3.1 Gayle can't believe what he has done. A loose delivery on his hip - it might have been called wide if he hadn't connected. But instead he connected too well, and picked out Stuart Broad at deep backward square 9/1
    5.1 insane cricket from West Indies, and they are four-down! Smith fenced loosely through the vacant gully, straight down to Anderson at third man whose flat throw was gathered smartly by Prior, and Smith - seeking a second run - is gone without even recourse to the third umpire 13/4
    4.3 no doubt about that delivery though! Full, fast, hits the seam and zips down the slope and through the gate. Lovely bowling, and now West Indies are in trouble 12/2
    4.4 now it's big, big trouble. Anderson banged one in, Samuels misjudged the bounce, and didn't drop his gloves low enough. Prior completes the catch, and Anderson is on a hat-trick! 12/3
    not out
    16.2 that's the breakthrough England wanted, Broad finds the right spot outside off stump, hint of seam movement as Bravo lunges forward and the regulation edge goes through to Prior 74/5
    16.4 and that's the end of that...pitched outside off stump, nips back into Ramdin and keeps a fraction low before clattering into off stump. Broad has two in the over and England are jumping again 74/6
    20.5 another for Broad...more big movement back down the Lord's slope, the ball takes the bottom/inside edge of Smith's limp waft and carries through to Prior. Broad's third wicket and that should seal the result for England 93/7
    23.2 it didn't take long, Powell plants his front foot on the crease and plays round a delivery which pitched and straightened from Panesar, no doubt that was taking middle and leg 100/8
    34.3 the stand is broken as Rampaul gets a leading edge against Plunkett trying to work through the leg side and sends a high catch to Stuart Broad at mid off...England a wicket away now 135/9
    39.5 what a farcical way to finish...Edwards swings over James Anderson at midwicket, completes one and begins to race back for a second, but Chanderpaul doesn't want it and Edwards has no chance of getting back as Collingwood collects the throw and breaks the stumps. 146/10

Match Notes

  • Collingwood praises Donald's impact

    Paul Collingwood marked his first ODI victory as England captain by singling out the impact of the former South African seamer, Allan Donald, who has been employed by the ECB as a temporary bowling coach for the past month

  • West Indies collapse chasing 226

    After producing arguably their most disciplined bowling performance of the entire tour, West Indies squandered a golden opportunity to go 1-0 up in the best-of-three one-day series

  • Windies handed Chanderpaul boost

    After the mayhem of two Twenty20 matches, the 50-over format is going to feel sedate for England and West Indies when they open the Natwest Series at Lord's on Sunday
