Great over, this
6.5Anderson to Sarwan, no run, and now he's rapped on the pads as Anderson ducks this one in
6.4Anderson to Sarwan, no run, ooh, inside edge by Sarwan - identical line and that could have shattered his stumps. Good, sprawling dive by Prior to his left
6.3Anderson to Sarwan, no run, decides against driving at this. Terrific line and pace
6.2Anderson to Sarwan, no run, oh bowled! Beautiful delivery which angled in then held its line, bouncing on Sarwan and beating him
6.1Anderson to Sarwan, no run, good line with a touch of shape away from the right-hander
End of over 6 (9 runs) - West Indies 33/1

CH Gayle  19* (18b 4x4)    SCJ Broad  3-0-20-0
RR Sarwan  6* (5b 1x4)    JM Anderson  3-0-13-1

5.6Broad to Gayle, no run, worked to leg
5.5Broad to Gayle, no run, a touch of late away movement for Broad, but handled nicely by Gayle
5.5Broad to Gayle, (no ball) FOUR, totally laid-back drive for four. All he did was hit through the line, yet it absolutely rocketed for four. Pure timing
5.4Broad to Gayle, no run, right back in his crease, Gayle defends with a straight bat
5.3Broad to Gayle, no run, firmly forward and defended to mid-off
5.2Broad to Gayle, no run, Gayle stands tall and slaps it back to Broad, who looks faintly disgusted that he should play such an unorthodox stroke
5.1Broad to Gayle, FOUR, outside off, Gayle lunges forward and opens the face, running it through the gap at third slip and gully. Hmm...
End of over 5 (6 runs) - West Indies 24/1

RR Sarwan  6* (5b 1x4)    JM Anderson  3-0-13-1
CH Gayle  11* (11b 2x4)    SCJ Broad  2-0-11-0

4.6Anderson to Sarwan, no run, excellent, straight delivery defended warily to point. That's the line to Sarwan
4.5Anderson to Sarwan, no run, wide enough to be left alone
Good pace from Anderson. 88mph
4.4Anderson to Sarwan, 2 runs, good line, just outside off, and angled out past point. Bopara, wearing aviator sunnies, misfields
4.3Anderson to Sarwan, no run, very full and carved to point
4.2Anderson to Sarwan, FOUR, not a bad way to get off the mark! An elegant off-drive for four, though Anderson won't mind him playing his shots, particularly with the swing he is now getting
That was a real cracker. Kept a touch low, too
4.1Anderson to Smith, OUT, bang! Got him! Anderson finds his length and, with it, some inswing - both of which are too good for Smith and his concreted feet, the ball bending back to bowl him through the gate
DS Smith b Anderson 7 (14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
End of over 4 (9 runs) - West Indies 18/0

CH Gayle  11* (11b 2x4)    SCJ Broad  2-0-11-0
DS Smith  7* (13b 1x4)    JM Anderson  2-0-7-0

3.6Broad to Gayle, FOUR, okay, he's looking a bit better now. The most thumping of cut strokes for four. No one moved.
Gayle's not looking right. I'm convinced of it
3.5Broad to Gayle, FOUR, mistimed pull but Gayle's got enough of it and it trickles onto, rather than over, the boundary
3.4Broad to Smith, 1 run, just tucks this to leg and they set off for a single
3.3Broad to Smith, no run, just outside off, Smith's back, across and blocking
Some news of interest: Runako Morton has been called into the one-day squad as a replacement for Dale Richards who flew home with a shoulder injury
3.2Broad to Smith, no run, well bowled on middle-and-off. Smith is back and across
3.1Broad to Smith, no run, good leave outside off. Good line and length
