  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Smith b Powell 33 100 70 6 0 47.14
24.1 goddim! Poor shot from Strauss, spooning it to Devon Smith at backward point. He never got on top of it - perhaps beaten by the lack of pace, if anything - and guided it straight to Smith 88/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Bravo b Taylor 105 285 196 10 0 53.57
63.3 short, wide and gone! And that's a very deserved wicket for Taylor at last, Bravo taking a straightforward catch from Cook's cut to the covers 219/4
View dismissal OA Shah c Smith b Powell 6 20 19 1 0 31.57
28.3 GONE! Powell strikes again - a very fine ball indeed, angling into Shah before cutting away from the right hander who fended it at hip height to Smith. Great ball; excellent comeback from the Windians, and from Powell in particular 103/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Smith b Collymore 26 77 44 4 0 59.09
44.4 gone and Collymore strikes! The bowler had Pietersen feeling for that one, who drove on the up to Smith at extra cover, straight into the midriff and the fielder juggled it twice, before holding on 162/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Bravo 111 278 209 14 0 53.11
106.5 bowled him! Fantastic ball, the inswinger which bent back sharply into Collingwood - at pace, too - knocking back his off stump. Collingwood perhaps expected that one to swing away from him, as Bravo has been doing. Really fine piece of bowling 363/5

View dismissal CH Gayle b Plunkett 30 50 39 5 0 76.92
12.2 yorker, looping in, knocking back off stump and nudging middle, Gayle played all round that one 38/1
View dismissal D Ganga lbw b Panesar 49 185 131 5 0 37.40
44.3 on middle-and-off, he comes forward but rapped on the pads - a big shout from Monty, was it pad first? Yes it was. The finger goes up, the umpire's Asad Rauf and that's out 165/4
View dismissal DS Smith b Panesar 21 61 39 4 0 53.84
26.1 bowled him! What a brilliant delivery. Smith completely missed it, expecting it to turn more than it did; a tentative forward defence and he's bowled 83/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan* lbw b Panesar 35 52 48 6 0 72.91
40.2 straight again and that's a great delivery, with the wicket a just reward. That came on with the arm, nipped in, and that would have taken off-and-middle halfway up as it raps Sarwan. playing forward, on the front pad 151/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul lbw b Panesar 74 269 193 9 0 38.34
106.4 Panesar rips one out of the rough on a length, Chanderpaul completely deceived, it hits him on the back leg and a loud appeal was only ever going to be given out. That was about as plumb as you can get 387/8
View dismissal RS Morton lbw b Panesar 14 29 22 2 0 63.63
52.2 and he's got another one! Fabulous bowling from Panesar here, rapping Morton on the pads who planted his foot down the pitch but hid the bat behind the pad. And yet again Rauf raises his finger 187/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Cook b Collingwood 56 76 59 8 1 94.91
71.6 Bravo's fallen in the trap, hooking to deep midwicket! And that's Collingwood's second Test wicket - and a catch for Cook, who nearly spoiled the broth, only just holding on as it was souped towards him 279/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c Collingwood b Plunkett 60 100 87 11 0 68.96
96.5 edged and gone! A bonus wicket for England late on, here. Great catch by the ever-reliable Collingwood at second slip, good delivery for Plunkett, a little bit of movement away and he's squared up a treat 362/7
DBL Powell not out 36 91 60 7 0 60.00
View dismissal JE Taylor c sub (LJ Hodgson) b Harmison 21 36 19 3 0 110.52
113.5 very well caught indeed. A slash to a half volley outside off which is expertly caught by Hodgson, the sub, diving forward at backward point and taking it inches from the ground 424/9
View dismissal CD Collymore lbw b Panesar 1 12 3 0 0 33.33
116.1 and there's Panesar's sixth, trapping him lbw - his fifth lbw of the innings as Collymore pads it away, the bat several inches away from the pad (and ball) and that's absolutely plumb 437/10

  England 2nd innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Morton b Collymore 24 56 55 2 0 43.63
13.5 super line, on target forcing Strauss to play ... he shapes to drive but the ball moves away from him a fraction and the edge is well caught low down by Morton at second slip 35/1
View dismissal AN Cook c †Ramdin b Collymore 65 180 125 8 0 52.00
43.4 a peach ... good line and length, a little movement away off the seam and that's enough to find the outside edge and give the keeper a straightforward catch 139/3
View dismissal OA Shah c †Ramdin b Collymore 4 9 5 1 0 80.00
15.4 Shah tried to work it round the corner, the ball seemed to come off glove and then thigh and loop to Ramdin down the leg side. Loud appeals and eventually Koertzen starts cranking his arm into action 51/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Gayle 109 208 138 12 0 78.98
62.1 reverse sweep ... well, more of a reverse hoick over midwicket ... anyhow, he misses it and Pietersen starts walking before the finger goes up 264/6
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Morton b Bravo 34 76 43 3 0 79.06
59.2 and he's got him at last. Another hook which he times quite well, but doesn't place it and Morton swallows an easy chance at fine-leg 241/4
View dismissal IR Bell c Ganga b Bravo 3 10 7 0 0 42.85
61.1 short, wide, Bell uppercuts down to third man. A hopeless stroke and it lands in Ganga's lap at third man 248/5
View dismissal MJ Prior c Bravo b Gayle 21 19 9 2 2 233.33
64.5 swung to leg but he gets a top edge and is caught by Bravo running in from short third man ... he was almost in the slips by the time he got to the ball which went quite some way up in the air 271/8
