Bravo to Nixon, OUT, anyone with a weak heart, turn off now. Slower ball fools Nixon who was on the walk as Bravo let go, he misses and it clips the top of his off stump

PA Nixon b Bravo 38 (83m 39b 4x4 0x6) SR: 97.43

Taylor to Plunkett, OUT, slower ball - 71mph - Plunkett underclubs and Bravo, five yards in from the long-on boundary, waits and takes a good catch above his head

LE Plunkett c Bravo b Taylor 2 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Taylor to Pietersen, OUT, another big heave, but Taylor fire in a full delivery on and it crashes into the leg stump

KP Pietersen b Taylor 100 (144m 91b 10x4 1x6) SR: 109.89

Taylor to Dalrymple, OUT, firmly on-driven to Devon Smith - straight to him, in fact - who threw down the stumps. A terrible, clueless run from Dalrymple and Smith, well, he had three stumps to aim at and hit middle. Easy.

JWM Dalrymple run out (Smith) 1 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Sarwan to Flintoff, OUT, oh dear. The kiss of death from Will as Flintoff flicks it - nothing more than a casual pluck to Powell at mid-on

A Flintoff c Powell b Sarwan 15 (23m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Bravo to Collingwood, OUT, outside off, Collingwood attempts to cut the ball but bottom-edges into his stumps. Bravo wheels away airplane-like while Collingwood looks accusingly at the pitch. Nothing wrong with the surface ...

PD Collingwood b Bravo 6 (11m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Sarwan to Vaughan, OUT, cut to backward point, Vaughan was off for the single but Bravo picked up and scored a direct hit at the striker's end. The third umpire was called for but Vaughan, who wasn't even in the frame, wasn't hanging around and was back in the hutch by the time the decision came

MP Vaughan run out (Bravo) 79 (116m 68b 6x4 2x6) SR: 116.17

Collymore to Bopara, OUT, that's a fine shot, cracking it square off the back foot, but it's brilliantly saved by Bravo at backward point. Oh and Bopara's going for a run but Bravo throws down the stumps - and hits, leaving Bopara comfortably short. Electric fielding from West Indies' best

RS Bopara run out (Bravo) 26 (60m 43b 3x4 0x6) SR: 60.46

Collymore to Strauss, OUT, straight, Strauss looks to turn it to leg but all he does is scoop the ball into the hands of Devon Smith at square leg. A soft dismissal

AJ Strauss c Smith b Collymore 7 (10m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

  • Some loud thunder

    It's a pity that the World Cup had to wait for 47 days for a match like this one, but the stage demanded nothing less

  • England and West Indies penalised for slow over rates

    Both England and West Indies have been penalised for slow over rates in their Super Eights match in Barbados yesterday

  • Still bucking the world

    With a cacophonous sell-out crowd and the green hills of central Barbados behind him, Brian Lara batted for the last time in an international today. Or so he tells us
