Cricket highlights: Watch West Indies vs England Day 1 highlights of the 1st test played at Sabina Park, Jamaica on Feb 4, 2009.

Scoreline: England 236/5. Kevin Pietersen 97. Andrew Flintoff 43 no.

KP almost pulled it off – a hundred in his first international knock after the captaincy drama. But a fantastic and important knock that makes statistics like a century fade away. Coming in with England tottering, Pietersen was watchful in parts before pulling out his trademark stuff. Ian Bell who has Owais Shah breathing down his neck started off with some cool shots and then got stuck a bit before being prised out by Chris Gayle. Having reached 236 by end of day’s play, primarily through the KP knock, England will be hoping Flintoff can extend his 43 with a bit more aggressive strokeplay today.

The teams:
West Indies: Chris Gayle, Devon Smith, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Xavier Marshall, Brendon Nash, Denesh Ramdin, Jerome Taylor, Sulieman Benn, Darren Powell, Fidel Edwards.
England: Andrew Strauss, Alistair Cook, Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Andrew Flintoff, Matt Prior, Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom, Steve Harmison, Monty Panesar
