Fidel Edwards201708.5063010
Ravi Rampaul401914.75151110
1.1 to AJ Strauss, what a tame dismissal, after the superb tour he's had! Banged in short on the off stump, goes for the pull, mistimes it completely and it lobs up straight to Bravo at midwicket. 8/1
Dwayne Bravo503106.20122011
Kieron Pollard503126.20122100
18.1 to RS Bopara, the shot just wasn't on, bowled on a good length outside off and he tried to heave that over midwicket from the crease, got the top edge and Ramdin just had to take a couple of steps to his left to complete an easy catch. 104/3
20.5 to A Flintoff, stunning catch! Bowled short on middle and leg and Flintoff just chips it towards midwicket where Chanderpaul dives full length to his right to pluck that inches from the ground, superbly done. 112/5
Daren Sammy604507.50143210
Sulieman Benn602323.83181000
15.2 to KP Pietersen, gone! Some good bounce there for Benn, short outside off and Pietersen tries to cut that off the back foot, does so but uppishly and straight to Sammy at point does a good job diving forward to his left to hold on to that one. 88/2
19.2 to OA Shah, a cheap dismissal, and West Indies have pulled things back well here. Full on middle and off, really slow through the air, tries to clear long-on but with little intent, was a gentle loft that, wasn't struck cleanly and Simmons, waiting in the deep just for such an error, takes it comfortably. 107/4

James Anderson603425.66143020
0.3 to CH Gayle, Big blow! Full on the off stump and moving away from the left hander, Gayle gets forward to defend with an open face, gets the outside edge and Flintoff takes a dolly at second slip. 1/1
24.1 to KA Pollard, not anymore! It's England's match to lose from here on. Full on middle and leg, struck through the line but not well enough, straight to Collingwood at long-on who takes a well judged catch running to his left. 124/6
Stuart Broad603215.33193110
23.6 to DJ Bravo, an uphill task ahead of West Indies now, Bravo goes after a handy contribution, but should have stayed till the end. Slower one again, short outside off, mistimes a cut straight to Flintoff at cover. 124/5
Andrew Flintoff501953.80182000
7.3 to RR Sarwan, gone! Too many attempts at a cut missed in this match and this one adds to the tally, short and wide, tries to clear point, gets a faint nick as Flintoff gains some good bounce and Prior pouches it comfortably. 40/2
9.1 to LMP Simmons, Simmons has thrown it away here, a fraction short on the off stump and he tries to slog it over mid-on, doesn't get hold of it, ends up mistiming it straight to Broad who accepts it gleefully. 45/3
26.3 to D Ramdin, bowled'im! Full and straight on the off stump, swinging in, Ramdin shuffles to tickle that fine, he's moved across a little too much and ends up playing the ball onto the stumps, Flintoff's taken three and England are inching towards a series win. 140/7
26.4 to R Rampaul, Flintoff on a hat-trick! Full on middle and leg, tries to whip it off his pads, misses and is struck on the pads in line with the stumps, Flintoff was late to appeal but Prior was convinced, and so was the umpire. 140/8
26.5 to SJ Benn, timber! He's taken three in a row and what's more it's a five-for! Yorker on middle, Benn makes room but it's too quick and he fails to get his bat down in time, the stumps take a beating and Flintoff is mobbed. 140/9
Steve Harmison301705.6661020
Dimitri Mascarenhas401604.00140100
Paul Collingwood402416.00111100
14.1 to S Chanderpaul, Probably a decisive wicket! England had built up the pressure nicely and Chanderpaul was forced into going for a slog-sweep over square leg, didn't time it well enough and Bell, the substitute fielder, stationed in the deep just has a few steps forward to complete a simple catch. 69/4
