    Default West Indies tour of England, 2009

    West Indies-England first Test begins at Lord’s

    LONDON: West Indies captain Chris Gayle won the toss and elected to field in the first Test against England at Lord''s here on Wednesday.

    England gave debuts to pace bowlers Graham Onions and Tim Bresnan in what was the opening match of a two-Test series.

    Monty Panesar was left out from England''s 12-man squad with Graeme Swann chosen as the side''s lone specialist spin bowler.

    West Indies, who earlier this year beat England 1-0 in a Test series in the Caribbean, opted for Devon Smith to open alongside Gayle after several top order batsmen had struggled in warm-up matches.

    The last six Tests at Lord''s have all ended in draws.

    Teams
    England: Andrew Strauss (captain), Alastair Cook, Ravi Bopara, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Matt Prior (wk), Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan, Graeme Swann, Graham Onions, James Anderson

    West Indies: Chris Gayle (captain), Devon Smith, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lendl Simmons, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Brendan Nash, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Jerome Taylor, Sulieman Benn, Fidel Edwards, Lionel Baker

    Umpires: Steve Davis (AUS) and Asoka de Silva (SL), TV umpire: Ian Gould (ENG)
    Match referee: Andy Pycroft (ZIM)

    Default England crush West Indies in first test


    England crush West Indies in first test

    LONDON: Australia-born Brendan Nash''s 81 wasn''t enough to prevent England beating the West Indies by 10 wickets to win the first Test at Lord''s here on Friday with more than two days to spare.

    Nash, together with Denesh Ramdin (61), did help prevent an innings defeat. The duo put on 143 for the sixth wicket - the only century partnership of the match after the West Indies had been made to follow-on.

    But by the time Nash was last man out, in a total of 256, England needed just 32 to win and so go 1-0 up in the series ahead of next week''s second and final Test at Durham''s Riverside ground.

    England captain Andrew Strauss (14 not out), who ended the match with a boundary, and fellow left-handed opener Alastair Cook (also 14 not out) knocked the runs off in 41 balls in what was the first Test win by any side at Lord''s after a run of six successive draws.

    This match was a triumph for several players.

    New England No 3 Ravi Bopara made a Test-best 143 on his home debut with tailender Graeme Swann, who later sparked West Indies'' first innings collapse, weighing in with his best score at this level of 63 not out in what was also the off-spinner''s first Test on home soil.

    After Swann had made the early inroads, debutant fast bowler Graham Onions took five for 38, including three wickets in an over, as the West Indies were bowled out for just 152 in reply to England''s first innings 377.

    The second Test starts on Thursday.

    Default England beat West Indies by 10 wickets


    England beat West Indies by 10 wickets

    LONDON: England beat West Indies by 10 wickets, winning the opening test of a series for the first time in 15 attempts.

    England reached the winning target of 32 after tea on the third day at Lord''s, having bowled out West Indies for 152 and 256 after its first innings of 377.

    Led by Ravi Bopara''s 143 and debutant Graham Onions'' 5-38 in the first innings and Graeme Swann''s three wickets in each innings, England won an opening test for the first time since beating Bangladesh at Lord''s in 2005 by an innings and 261 runs.

    The second and final test starts Thursday at Chester-le-Street as England attempts to avenge its 1-0 loss at West Indies in a five-match series earlier this year.

    West Indies'' Brendan Nash scored 81 and put on 134 with DeneshRamdin (61) for the seventh wicket to ensure England had to bat again, but Alastair Cook and Strauss each hit 14 not out to take the hosts to victory.

    Swann won the man-of-the-match award by taking 3-39 to add to his3-16 in the first innings and 63 not out with the bat.

    Stuart Broad claimed 3-65 as England took little more than half an hour after tea to wrap up the West Indies'' second innings, the visitors losing their last five wickets for 34. West Indies began the day on 39-2 after play was delayed for an hour.

    Default Bell and Sidebottom in second Test squad

    England have recalled Ian Bell and Ryan Sidebottom to their squad for the second Test against West Indies at Chester-le-Street. Monty Panesar's omission is the only change from the first Test squad at a venue not known to assist spin.
    Bell started the season with scores of 172 and 108 for Warwickshire, after being told to go back and score big runs following his axe on the tour of the Caribbean, but was overlooked for the No. 3 spot. Ravi Bopara seized his opportunity to bat one-drop with his second Test century, but Bell has been called up on the back of 320 runs in seven first-class innings.
    After being left out before the first Test, Bell was told by national selector Geoff Miller to show even more passion about earning a recall although since his early-season centuries he has managed scores of 27 for the England Lions and 37, 30 not out in first-class cricket.
    Bell's inclusion means there is the option of playing an extra batsman at Chester-le-Street should conditions seem heavily in-favour of the bowlers, but Andy Flower has made it clear that he is keen on a five-man attack. England's middle order wobbled at Lord's with Kevin Pietersen making a first-ball duck and Paul Collingwood falling for 8.
    Sidebottom returns after recovering from surgery on a chronic Achilles injury after the West Indies tour. He has played two Championship matches, claiming seven wickets at 31.42 and will give Andy Flower another seam option. If England make a change to the winning eleven from Lord's, Tim Bresnan would be the player to drop out after being restricted to seven overs on his debut.
    "Both Bell and Sidebottom have been in form in the early part of the season and have been a part of the England set-up in recent years," said Miller. "Ryan Sidebottom has recovered from surgery and reports that he is now bowling pain-free.
    "The inclusion of Bell and Sidebottom in the squad gives the selectors, the coach and the captain several options going into this game. Monty Panesar is unlucky but it was always highly unlikely that we would play two spinners at Chester-le-Street."

    England squad Andrew Strauss (capt), Alastair Cook, Ravi Bopara, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Ian Bell, Matt Prior (wk), Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan, Graeme Swann, James Anderson, Graham Onions, Ryan Sidebottom.

    England win series, beating Windies by innings and 83 runs

    CHESTER-LE-STREET: England won the second and final Test against the West Indies by an innings and 83 runs on Monday''s final day here at the Riverside.

    Victory gave England the series 2-0 after their 10-wicket first Test win at Lord''s and saw them regain the Wisden Trophy they lost in the Caribbean earlier this year.

    And three overs after the break England had wrapped up the match, with a further wicket apiece for Anderson and Bresnan.

    Anderson finished with innings figures of four wickets for 38 runs, for a match haul of nine for 125 while Bresnan took three for 45.

    England had been in charge here from the start with opener Alastair Cook''s Test-best 160 the cornerstone of their total of 569 for six declared.

    Brief scores:
    England 569-6 dec (A Cook 160, R Bopara 108, M Prior 63, P Collingwood 60 no)
    West Indies 310 (R Sarwan 100, D Ramdin 55; J Anderson 5-87, S Broad 3-62)
    and 176 (C Gayle 54; J Anderson 4-38, T Bresnan 3-45).

    Default Pietersen ruled out of one-day series

    Kevin Pietersen has been ruled out of the one-day series against West Indies with a minor right achilles tendon injury. He will be treated over the next week and the ECB are confident he will be able to take part in the ICC World Twenty20.
    The injury, which Pietersen has been managing up to now, flared up during the second Test against West Indies at Chester-le-Street, but the only time he spent off the field was a short period on the fourth morning when he was feeling nauseous.
    "The injury would not necessarily prevent him from playing," said Nick Peirce, the ECB chief medical officer. "But by giving him a precautionary period of time out to receive some concentrated treatment and rest we are enabling the niggle to settle down in preparation of the ICC World Twenty20 and the Ashes. This is not an injury that would preclude him from participating in either event."
    Pietersen said that although disappointed at missing the three ODIs - the first cricket he has sat out for England since he fractured a rib during the 2006-07 CB Series - that it was important he was fully fit for the contests ahead. "The medical advice is to rest the achilles and although I'm frustrated to be leaving a happy and successful dressing room I'm absolutely confident this will help me overcome what has up until now been a minor ongoing injury.
    "I hate missing out on playing for England but understand that in this instance it's necessary in order to overcome the injury," he added. "Even though I won't be lining up for England during this series I'll be watching and supporting the team closely. I'm looking forward to being back in the England line up for the World Twenty20 and the rest of an exciting summer of cricket."
    England have not called up a replacement to the squad which means that Ian Bell and Eoin Morgan will be vying for the vacant batting spot at Headingley.

    Default Prior powers England to victory


    Prior powers England to victory

    BIRMINGHAM: Matt Prior''s one-day international best of 87 set up England''s 58-run win in the third and final match of their series against the West Indies at Edgbaston here on Tuesday.

    Victory saw England win the series 2-0 after a six-wicket win in Bristol on Sunday following Thursday''s washout at Headingley.

    Wicket-keeper Prior''s innings was the centrepiece of England''s imposing total of 328 for seven in their permitted 50 overs.

    That was their highest in this form of cricket against the West Indies, surpassing the 306 for five they made in a 55 overs per side match at the Oval in 1995. West Indies, chasing 329 to win, finished well short on 270 all out.

    Prior has not been selected for next month''s World Twenty20 in England, with James Foster the hosts'' specialist wicket-keeper.

    But the Sus+++ gloveman, who has been struggling with a right ring finger injury, was not too disappointed.

    "I''m actually quite looking forward to having time off to get the finger right," man-of-the-match Prior told reporters.

    However, he added: "It''s a World Cup in your home country, of course you would be gutted to miss out.

    "But there are a huge amount of positives to have come out of the last month. I couldn''t have wished for a better Test series and to get the opportunity at No 3 (in the one-dayers) was fantastic."

    Defeat completed a miserable tour for the West Indies, who suffered a pair of heavy losses in their preceding 2-0 Test series loss to England.

    They only arrived in the early part of an English season after Sri Lanka, the scheduled tourists, had pulled out because of their players'' commitments in the Indian Premier League.

    West Indies captain Chris Gayle, whose side were beaten by six wickets in the second one-dayer in Bristol after the series opener at Headingley was washed out, did not look especially enthusiastic about having to cut short his time in the IPL to come on this tour.

    Asked if this was one of his worst experiences as West Indies captain, Gayle replied: "It is. It wasn''t the best but I have to give credit where it is due, England set the game up in the batting department."

    Prior put on 149 for the third wicket with Owais Shah, who made an entertaining 75, after Gayle had won the toss and chose to field.

    Prior, batting at No 3 in place of the injured Kevin Pietersen, saw his innings better the 52 he made against the West Indies at Edgbaston in 2007.

    Miscast as a ''pinch hitter'' early in his career, Prior was happy to be batting at first-wicket down. "I was told you are batting at three in your own right," he said.

    Gayle - a man whom the tourists would have been looking to for a big score - fell for just 11 when he miscued a pull off Stuart Broad to Ravi Bopara at mid-on.

    And when England captain Andrew Strauss held a brilliant one-handed catch in the covers off Stuart Broad to get rid of Ramnaresh Sarwan, the West Indies had slumped to 22 for two.

    Shivnarine Chanderpaul, a class player in all forms of the game, steadied the ship with an innings of 68 and put on 82 with wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin (45).

    But the run-rate was always against them and when they both fell in quick succession, Ramdin departing after a diving one-handed catch by Prior off James Anderson, the West Indies were 189 for six and the game all but over.

    England openers Strauss (52) and Bopara (49) made a solid start.

    The fifty came up in 62 balls and Bopara continued to find the boundary with some superb square-cuts and drives in a spell of four fours in nine balls. But Bopara was one short of his fifty whe he played on to Dwayne Bravo.

    Strauss, who has opted out of the World Twenty20, did get to fifty, off 65 balls with seven fours, but his next ball saw him stumped by wicket-keeper Ramdin off giant spinner Sulieman Benn.

    Strauss''s Middle+++ colleague Shah completed a run-a-ball fifty in flamboyant fashion with a wristily pulled six off Bravo that also brought up a century partnership with Prior.
