BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1014114.10423220
46.5 to FH Edwards, gone, deceived by the slower one, bowled full outside off, instead of giving his partner the strike he chips this one straight o Collingwood at long-off, Bravo stranded with the last man now, Fidel's no hitter. 224/8
Stuart Broad1006236.20346301
12.4 to CH Gayle, wicket, finally! Short of a good length on the off stump and he tries to bludgeon that into the stands over midwicket, gets the top edge and Matt Prior judges it well running to his left.. 72/1
40.4 to DJG Sammy, timber! Bowled at 84.6 mph, a hint of inward movement, landed on a good length on the off stump, pushed Sammy back, kept a little low, broke through his defenses to crash into off and middle. 173/7
47.2 to DJ Bravo, gone, identical delivery, attempts an identical shot, connects it this time, but not well enough, finds the substitute fielder Ian Bell who snaps it comfortably at deep midwicket, the end of a valuable innings. 225/9
Andrew Flintoff905816.44336211
15.5 to RR Sarwan, chopped it on! Fraction short on the off stump, tried to guide it to third man, got the inside edge and the sticks behind him take a beating! England have clawed back well here. 83/3
Steve Harmison804205.25244100
Dimitri Mascarenhas1012632.60381000
26.2 to D Ramdin, horrendous shot, that! Not even to the pitch, bowled on a good length on the off stump, went for a massive heave over midwicket, ended up slicing it and Flintoff at mid-on ran a few steps back to complete a well-judged catch. West Indies clearly on the back foot now. 126/4
32.2 to S Chanderpaul, massive blow! Persisted with that irritating line just outside off, Chanderpaul tried to nudge that down to third man, got a thin edge and Prior made no mistake. England on top!. 143/5
34.4 to KA Pollard, excellent catch by Flintoff, but he seems to have touched the ropes! The runs were difficult to come by, Pollard's eyes lit up after he saw that ball pitched up on the off stump, had a wild swing at it, didnt get hold of it and Flintoff at deep midwicket took it above his head with a leap and it just looked, seeing the replays, as if his left foot had just nudged the ropes on his way down. There was definitely some movement, the umpires, though, have given it out. 145/6

14.3 to RS Bopara, gone, but has the wicket come too late? Failed to pick the slower one, was into the stroke too early and failed to get to the pitch, Pollard held it back just a touch compared to the previous delivery, Bopara tried to swing it over square leg, got the direction wrong, ended up lofting it really high towards fine leg where Miller took a well-judged catch. 108/1
