Plunkett, very erratic, bowls to Joseph in the West Indies first innings of the second test. My brother and I had a very good day, much better than the last time I was there in 1961 when I saw England score about 123 in a day against the Aussies.

England resumed at 266 for 5 with Pietersen on 130. When he was out for 226, Vaughan declared at 570 for 7. The Windies did not do well despite Plunkett and Harmison being erratic. They had to follow on at 140 all out, 23 of which were extras. The closed at 22 for 2 with Powell, their time wasting night watchman, fittingly dismissed by Sidebottom's last ball of the day. He was by far the best bowler with 54 for 6 on the day.

The next day was washed out so we had picked the right day to be there.
