It was 5th day of the second test match and everyone was sure that English Bowlers would stuck seven players of West Indies and probably level the series by 1-1. When 5th day of test match started it was Chanderpaul and Sarwan who has to resume the innings. Both the players started their innings with a positive attitude and played their natural game and they build a strong partnership and took score to 244 from 96. This was the first turning point of the match that was done by West Indian Batsmen. Then at that stage West Indies had to face their first blow of the day and they have to bear the loss of Sarwan who scored 106 runs. In first inning, he became the victim of nervous ninety’s but this time he finished that well and completed his century. His century turned the match into West Indies side and that innings put a dramatic impact on the cricket result.West Indian team wanted some more contribution from Sarwan but he got out and then and Nash came on the crease to defend its tail ender batsmen. Soon after the dismissal of Sarwan, Chanderpaul also got out after scoring 55 runs, a decent contribution, but not up to the mark and total score was raised by 55 runs. The team wanted much more than this from Chanderpaul. Anyhow Ramdin, the West Indian team’s wicket keeper, along with Nash consumed a number of balls and make the flow of match towards a draw. When the score reached at 287, Nash got out lbw on the ball of Swann. This was the sixth wicket which has been fallen and English team was very hopeful for a victory at that time. After the dismissal of Sarwan, English bowlers had started out to take wickets with regular intervals of time which stuck the live scores of the West Indian Batsmen. But God was writing something different then our assumptions and West Indian tail Enders continues to fight against English bowlers.When Taylor got out, West Indian team was at 313, and it was the 7th wicket that has been fallen. At that time, England was assured of their win as they have taken 7 West Indian batsmen and only 3 have to go. But at that stage Benn and Powell take the charge and they became rock hard. God also gave favor to West Indian tail Enders as the light gone bad and umpires put banned on the pacers. Andrew flintoff, who was severely injured, just came back by taking medicine and injections to bowl but as soon as he came, just after the ban became active. When they are just about to end the match in a draw, West Indies lost another wicket of SJ Benn. Benn and Powell consumed 51 and 65 deliveries respectively and take their team out from losing the match. When Benn got out, at that time it looked like that West Indies going to lose again as it was the 8th wicket which has been fallen.  But FH Edwards played a responsible innings along with the Powell and ends the match in a draw.  It was a great day for West Indies as they have saved their 1-0 lead in the series but a hopeless day for England as they are at an arm’s length from the victory.You can see live updates of scores from ScoresPro.com.
