The Wisden Trophy - 2nd Test

England v West Indies

England won by 9 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

James Anderson gets ready. Three slips and a gully in place. Here we go...

The players are on their way out. England in the huddle and the West Indies openers walk past them.

10.55am Just a few minutes away from the start and another new-ball burst from James Anderson. He has 33 Test wickets here at a little over 17.

"Thought the Lord's match was far better and closer than might have been. Looking forward to another good game," says James. "West Indies bowling attack for this test looks far better than at Lords. I expect Roach and Rampaul to give the England openers a real test with the new ball."

10.45am Shane Warne is in the commentary box for this Test and he's always worth listening to. He's chatting with Michael Holding and Ian Botham at the moment - a few Test wickets in that trio.

This is a huge morning for West Indies' top three. Trent Bridge always swings but they couldn't ask for better batting conditions. If you have any thoughts on the day feel free to send them in. We can't promise to read them all but will try our best.

"Weather looks good, so nothing for Shillingford to complain about," says PDTM. "He unleashed his interesting top spinner late in the test series, it has some serious bite to it. It will be interesting to see him bowl at the doosraphobic Ian Bell."

10.35am It certainly looks a batting day at Trent Bridge, but this will still be a test of West Indies' top three. Can they prevent Chanderpaul walking in at 40 for 3 again? James Anderson loves this ground and it is Stuart Broad's home venue.

10.30am West Indies win the toss and will bat. Shane Shillingford and Ravi Rampaul are back for the visitors. Andrew Strauss says he would have batted, too, but hopes his quicks will find some early movement. Tim Bresnan keeps his place so England are unchanged.

England Andrew Strauss (capt), 2 Alastair Cook, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Kevin Pietersen, 5 Ian Bell, 6 Jonny Bairstow, 7 Matt Prior (wk), 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Stuart Broad, 10 Graeme Swann, 11 James Anderson

West Indies Adrian Barath, 2 Kieran Powell, 3 Kirk Edwards, 4 Darren Bravo, 5 Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 6 Marlon Samuels, 7 Denesh Ramdin (wk), 8 Darren Sammy (capt), 9 Kemar Roach, 10 Ravi Rampaul, 11 Shane Shillingford

10.20am So will it be Tim Bresnan or Steven Finn for England? The gut feeling is the former. We'll have the toss and team news shortly. West Indies are expected to recall offspinner Shane Shillingford which is good news on many levels, not least for the over-rate.

10.15am The other issue to emerge ahead of this Test has been KP and Twitter - not for the first time. He does not agree with Nick Knight and made his view clear, which did not impress the ECB. David Hopps looks at the issues and hopes it doesn't turn England's cricketers bland.

10.00am Hello everyone and welcome to coverage of the second Test between England and West Indies from Trent Bridge. Summer has finally arrived in the UK and the weather is set fair so we should be in for a good few days of action. I'm Andrew McGlashan and along with Alan Gardner will bring you the fun and frolics today.

The final margin of victory at Lord's looked comfortable for England but the visitors had plenty to be pleased about; the batting of Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Darren Bravo and Marlon Sameuls and bowling of Kemar Roach. However, one of their main weaknesses is the opening combination and Nagraj Gollapudi took a look at that area with input from Toby Radford. Meanwhile, here's a general preview of the game with some thoughts on the teams.

0.1

Anderson to Barath, no run, starts on off stump, Barath defends solidly into the covers

0.2

Anderson to Barath, no run, pushed down the leg side, the batsman has a flick at it but doesn't make any contact

0.3

Anderson to Barath, no run, fuller and outside off stump, some swing there but it carries at ankle-height through to Matt Prior

0.4

Anderson to Barath, no run, angling into the right hander who shapes to play to leg and is taken on the pad

0.5

Anderson to Barath, no run, full at middle, searching for swing of which there is a little, and Barath responds with a well-struck drive but Anderson dives in his follow through and gets a hand on it

0.6

Anderson to Barath, no run, ends the first over with a bouncer which sails comfortably over a ducking Barath

End of over 1 (maiden) West Indies 0/0
AB Barath    0* (6b)      JM Anderson    1-1-0-0
KOA Powell    0* (0b)     

"Couldn't understand Bresnan getting in ahead of Finn at Lords, or here, Finn is far superior as a bowler," says Stephen. Bresnan is an excellent, under-rated, cricketer. Finn's time will come. Meanwhile, Stuart Broad will share the new ball on his homeground. He took a hat-trick here last year against India. He has a short leg in place.

1.1

Broad to Powell, no run, good first ball, full on off stump with a hint of movement back into Powell who punches towards mid-off

1.2

Broad to Powell, FOUR, elegant way to get the innings up and running as Powell leans into a cover drive against a full delivery outside off stump. Plenty of room in the covers and a quick outfield

1.3

Broad to Powell, FOUR, good response from Broad who finds the edge with a back-of-a-length delivery but it drops well short of Strauss at first slip and beats him down to third man

1.4

Broad to Powell, no run, outside off and left alone

1.5

Broad to Powell, no run, first bouncer from Broad, over leg stump and Powell ducks out of the way...the deliveries are looping, rather than springing, off this surface

1.6

Broad to Powell, no run, pushed wide outside off stump and Powell isn't interested

End of over 2 (8 runs) West Indies 8/0
KOA Powell    8* (6b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-8-0
AB Barath    0* (6b)      JM Anderson    1-1-0-0

2.1

Anderson to Barath, no run, nips back at Barath who is taken high on the pad which brings a strangled shout but nothing serious

Here's John on Bresnan: "To be fair re: Bresnan he could be the worst cricketer in the history of the game but while he keeps this record going he'll be first on my team sheet. When England lose a game though....."

2.2

Anderson to Barath, no run, good delivery from Anderson which again takes Barath on the pad

2.3

Anderson to Barath, no run, back of a length on off stump, Barath stays on the back foot and punches square into the off side

2.4

Anderson to Barath, no run, another fairly harmless bouncer to keep Barath on the back foot

2.5

Anderson to Barath, no run, beats an attempt to play to leg and the pads are getting a pounding this morning

2.6

Anderson to Barath, no run, tight delivery on off stump and defended into the off side as Barath stays on zero

A hint of early movement but nothing huge. It may actually swing more in a few overs when the lacquer is off the ball

End of over 3 (maiden) West Indies 8/0
AB Barath    0* (12b)      JM Anderson    2-2-0-0
KOA Powell    8* (6b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-8-0

3.1

Broad to Powell, 1 run, good length on off stump and punched firmly to cover

3.2

Broad to Barath, OUT, gone! There's the first of the day. Back of a length, Barath forces off the back foot and Anderson grabs a superb one-handed take at third slip, stick out his left hand towards second slip. The catchers have moved up a pace and that showed outstanding reflexes. Bit of weak shot from Barath who could have left that delivery.

AB Barath c Anderson b Broad 0 (14m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Broad gets an early scalp in front of his home crowd and Kirk Edwards is in at No.3. He's had a tough tour so far

3.3

Broad to Edwards, no run, tight leave first up as this starts just outside off stump and shapes back into the right hander as he shoulders arms

3.4

Broad to Edwards, no run, full on middle and off, Edwards is caught on the crease but defends into the leg side

3.5

Broad to Edwards, no run, goes to leave this one and it runs off the face off the bat but into the ground towards gully

3.6

Broad to Edwards, 1 run, he's off the mark by squeezing this off the stumps past short leg

End of over 4 (2 runs) West Indies 10/1
KA Edwards    1* (4b)      SCJ Broad    2-0-10-1
KOA Powell    9* (7b 2x4)      JM Anderson    2-2-0-0

"Been reading in the press for the last week about how amazing Englands attack is and it's the best in the world etc," says Jasob B. "It's nowhere near as good as South Africa's attack. You cant compare Anderson against Steyn. The English press has lost it. Cant wait for the SA England series to start. SA to win it 2-0." We shall see.

4.1

Anderson to Edwards, no run, good length outside off stump, Edwards defends and gets an inside edge into his pad which then runs to the off side

4.2

Anderson to Edwards, no run, a little wider of the stumps and a comfortable leave for Edwards

4.3

Anderson to Edwards, FOUR, dropped another edge flies towards third slip but this time Bresnan is there and can't hold on diving full length to his left...could second slip have got it? Flew quickly.

4.4

Anderson to Edwards, 4 leg byes, now a big appeal for lbw as a full delivery glances off Edwards' boot down to fine leg but it would have missed leg stump...Edwards not looking comfortable

4.5

Anderson to Edwards, no run, left alone outside off but it did move back a touch

4.6

Anderson to Edwards, no run, defended to the off stump to end an over that could easily have had another wicket

"Amazing left-handed catch by Anderson, worthy of Collingwood," says John Muir. "The West Indies desperately needed a good start, so let's hope this doesn't turn into a procession." Anderson needed himself at third slip off his own bowling.

End of over 5 (8 runs) West Indies 18/1
KA Edwards    5* (10b 1x4)      JM Anderson    3-2-4-0
KOA Powell    9* (7b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    2-0-10-1

5.1

Broad to Powell, no run, zips through a touch more outside off and Prior takes at waist-height

5.2

Broad to Powell, no run, movement back into Powell and it takes an inside edge as he defends

5.3

Broad to Powell, no run, on off stump, Powell defends on the back foot towards the bowler

5.4

Broad to Powell, no run, fuller and going across the left hander who leaves alone. This time it reaches Prior at his bootlaces. Two-paced pitch?

5.5

Broad to Powell, FOUR, another handsome drive from Powell. Was very full and inviting from Broad, there was barely any footwork from Powell but he trusted his hand-eye coordination

5.6

Broad to Powell, no run, left alone outside off

End of over 6 (4 runs) West Indies 22/1
KOA Powell    13* (13b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    3-0-14-1
KA Edwards    5* (10b 1x4)      JM Anderson    3-2-4-0

6.1

Anderson to Edwards, no run, pitched a touch shorter from Anderson and Edwards gets a bottom edge onto his body as he played a half-hearted pull

6.2

Anderson to Edwards, no run, onto the front foot and defends square into the off side

6.3

Anderson to Edwards, no run, full on off stump, a solid thud from Edwards' bat as he plays towards mid-on

6.4

Anderson to Edwards, 2 runs, nicely played, a firm and well-timed punched which beats mid-off

6.5

Anderson to Edwards, no run, defended off the a thick inside edge to the leg side

6.6

Anderson to Edwards, no run, a defensive shot to a ball on off stump rolls out to the man at midwicket

End of over 7 (2 runs) West Indies 24/1
KA Edwards    7* (16b 1x4)      JM Anderson    4-2-6-0
KOA Powell    13* (13b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    3-0-14-1

Here's Mr Muir again. "@Jacob B: SA's seamers might be marginally better than England's, but Swann's a much better spinner than Tahir. SA's batting is really only 4 deep (Smith, Amla, Kallis and De Villiers) while England bats down to #7 and has the best lower order in the world. Should be a close series."

7.1

Broad to Powell, 2 runs, on leg stump and neatly flicked past short leg, the fielder at fine leg runs around

7.2

Broad to Powell, no run, a bouncer which doesn't threaten Powell as he ducks his head out of the line

7.3

Broad to Powell, no run, playing away from his body a touch at a delivery going across him and the ball finds gully

7.4

Broad to Powell, no run, another bouncer and again the batsman isn't interested in pull or hooking. Has he learned from Lord's?

7.5

Broad to Powell, no run, goes fuller now at off stump, Powell almost plays a fraction early but is able to stop himself spooning the ball towards mid-off

7.6

Broad to Powell, no run, again not much footwork, driving away from his body and he needs to be careful that doesn't offer a catch square of the wicket

End of over 8 (2 runs) West Indies 26/1
KOA Powell    15* (19b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    4-0-16-1
KA Edwards    7* (16b 1x4)      JM Anderson    4-2-6-0

Breaking news (sort of): England have announced that Jonny Bairstow has qualified for an 2011-12 increment contract after the first Test at Lord's, via a points system based on the number of international appearances made within a 12-month period

8.1

Anderson to Edwards, no run, down the leg side

8.2

Anderson to Edwards, no run, full at off stump, Edwards comes across his crease and works it towards mid-on. England searching for the lbw.

8.3

Anderson to Edwards, OUT, Edwards worked over again. Lovely bowling from Anderson as he beats a loose forward prod with an inswinger. Done like a kipper and Edwards' problems continue.

KA Edwards b Anderson 7 (20m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

West Indies in very familiar early trouble. Shiv will be padded up and ready. But for now it's Bravo.

8.4

Anderson to Bravo, no run, pushed across Bravo first ball and he leaves well alone

This is from Dave Conner: "Disappointed that Tino Best didn't get called in for this test! I was looking forward to the Barmy Army dishing out the "Mind the Windows Tino" sledge a la Freddie!"

8.5

Anderson to Bravo, no run, a little fuller and left again

8.6

Anderson to Bravo, no run, makes him play to end the over, on middle and off, defended out to the off side

Replays show that Edwards was still on the move when the ball hit off stump. No balance in the shot.

End of over 9 (wicket maiden) West Indies 26/2
DM Bravo    0* (3b)      JM Anderson    5-3-6-1
KOA Powell    15* (19b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    4-0-16-1

Broad comes round the wicket to Powell

9.1

Broad to Powell, 1 run, full and fairly wide outside off stump, Powell reaches out to drive but doesn't beat mid-off

Staying round the wicket to Bravo, too, with three slips and a gully in place

9.2

Broad to Bravo, no run, starts well outside off stump and although the angle brings it back it is an easy leave

9.3

Broad to Bravo, no run, fuller and tighter to Bravo who comes onto the front foot and defends backward of square to a deep gully

9.4

Broad to Bravo, 2 runs, drives a full delivery straight of mid-off but it isn't perfectly timed and Alastair Cook is able to haul it in

9.5

Broad to Bravo, no run, dragged short and wide outside off, bit of a waste and left alone...Broad turned quickly on his heels after that one

9.6

Broad to Bravo, no run, onto the front foot, defended from outside off and runs into the leg side to midwicket

End of over 10 (3 runs) West Indies 29/2
DM Bravo    2* (8b)      SCJ Broad    5-0-19-1
KOA Powell    16* (20b 3x4)      JM Anderson    5-3-6-1

Gary is not happy: "I have supported WI cricket since 1957. This is a time of terrible penance for true believers like myself. Sammy lives in cuckoo land when he talks of success and building team spirit like he did before this test. So game after game they refuse to put their best team on the field and they pay the price. Is there anyone out there who does not understand that Sammy's main qualification is that he says "how high?" when the WI board asks him to jump?"

10.1

Anderson to Powell, no run, full on middle and off, Powell gets half forward and defends to mid-off

10.2

Anderson to Powell, FOUR, close! Pushing away from his body again and gets an inside edge which just misses the stumps and races to fine leg

10.3

Anderson to Powell, no run, driven firmly into the covers

10.4

Anderson to Powell, no run, touch shorter on off stump, defended to the off side and he gets a little stare from Anderson

10.5

Anderson to Powell, no run, pitches fuller again, trying to find that late swing, and defended to the off side

10.6

Anderson to Powell, no run, pushed off the back foot to the left of mid-on. Powell thinks of a single but is wisely sent back by Bravo

End of over 11 (4 runs) West Indies 33/2
KOA Powell    20* (26b 4x4)      JM Anderson    6-3-10-1
DM Bravo    2* (8b)      SCJ Broad    5-0-19-1

"West Indies has made a good decision by batting first because England is weak at playing spin," says Venkatesh. "On a fifth day track there will be little turn but you can expect to bounce which shillingford has to exploit." West Indies need a first-innings total to defend, first. Time for a bowling change, here's Tim Bresnan

11.1

Bresnan to Bravo, no run, starts full outside off stump and Bravo drives sweetly to mid-off

11.2

Bresnan to Bravo, no run, dragged down short and pushed too wide outside off which gives Bravo an easy leave

11.3

Bresnan to Bravo, no run, better line, tighter to off stump, and it's a well-judged leave rather than being tempted into a drive

11.4

Bresnan to Bravo, no run, goes across Bravo and too wide to interest him in playing

11.5

Bresnan to Bravo, no run, fuller but again wide enough for Bravo not to need to play

11.6

Bresnan to Bravo, no run, a beauty! Bresnan ends his first over with a superb delivery, starting around middle and off, which beats the outside edge

End of over 12 (maiden) West Indies 33/2
DM Bravo    2* (14b)      TT Bresnan    1-1-0-0
KOA Powell    20* (26b 4x4)      JM Anderson    6-3-10-1

Oran Peter joins the debate: "To respond to Gary, cricket is not like football where you have a manager who selects the team, you have a board. You can only use the tools at your disposal. A true captain as he is does not neglect the team to play in IPL. Cricket is like football go where the money. So do not blame Sammy blame the batsmen they are there to do the job, and if so the board for not giving him the tools."

12.1

Anderson to Powell, no run, into a seventh over for Anderson and this delivery on off stump is played to the covers

12.2

Anderson to Powell, no run, a more expansive drive this time from Powell but the cover area is protected

12.3

Anderson to Powell, no run, caught on the back foot by a fuller delivery and the ball runs backwards towards the slips off a thick edge

12.4

Anderson to Powell, FOUR, lovely shot, too straight from Anderson and it's flicked off middle stump through midwicket

12.5

Anderson to Powell, no run, drags his length back, Powell defends on the back foot to the leg side

12.6

Anderson to Powell, no run, full on middle and defended back to the bowler

End of over 13 (4 runs) West Indies 37/2
KOA Powell    24* (32b 5x4)      JM Anderson    7-3-14-1
DM Bravo    2* (14b)      TT Bresnan    1-1-0-0

13.1

Bresnan to Bravo, 1 run, a well-judged single as Bravo pushed off the back foot into the covers and Powell responds

13.2

Bresnan to Powell, no run, full outside off stump, not much footwork from Powell and a thick edge runs along the ground to gully

13.3

Bresnan to Powell, FOUR, nicely played, a enticing half volley from Bresnan and Powell gives another example of how he likes to drive

13.4

Bresnan to Powell, no run, he drags the length back and it is left alone outside off

13.5

Bresnan to Powell, no run, tighter to off stump, a good line and a good leave from Powell

13.6

Bresnan to Powell, no run, defended off the back foot back to the bowler who fields in his follow through

End of over 14 (5 runs) West Indies 42/2
KOA Powell    28* (37b 6x4)      TT Bresnan    2-1-5-0
DM Bravo    3* (15b)      JM Anderson    7-3-14-1

Here's something rare. We are going to get 15 overs in an hour with three quicks on. It can be done.

14.1

Anderson to Bravo, no run, well bowled, hint of movement squares up Bravo a touch as he defends to the off side

14.2

Anderson to Bravo, no run, a very short bouncer which does not bother Bravo

Anderson comes round the wicket

14.3

Anderson to Bravo, OUT, and the moves works first ball! Loose drive from Bravo at a full, wide, delivery, and he gives a catch to second slip where Swann holds on. Another giveaway from West Indies, but good planning from England's bowlers.

DM Bravo c Swann b Anderson 3 (25m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

West Indies 42 for 3. It's like a broken record. Over to Shiv...again. And it's over to Alan for the commentary.

Morning. Oh, goodie, I get to watch Mr Chanderpaul bat!

14.4

Anderson to Chanderpaul, 4 leg byes, and Shiv almost gets a first-baller! Banged in short and deflected over the diving Prior and Strauss - though replays show the ball actually hit his arm guard

14.5

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, round the wicket, length ball outside off, defended coming forward

14.6

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, angled in, quick delivery and Chanderpaul has to adjust on the move to jab the ball down on to the pitch from in front of the stumps

It's Trent Bridge and Jimmy is swinging. Would you believe it?

End of over 15 (4 runs, wicket maiden) West Indies 46/3
S Chanderpaul    0* (3b)      JM Anderson    8-4-14-2
KOA Powell    28* (37b 6x4)      TT Bresnan    2-1-5-0

15.1

Bresnan to Powell, no run, pitched up on off, defended on the front foot

15.2

Bresnan to Powell, no run, line and length across the left-hander, lets it through

15.3

Bresnan to Powell, no run, back of a length, hint of drift back in but Powell knows where his off stump it and raises his bat high in the air

15.4

Bresnan to Powell, FOUR, overpitched, on the stumps and Powell times a sweet clip through square leg to bring up the Windies fifty

15.5

Bresnan to Powell, no run, pulls his length back, defended in front of the wicket

15.6

Bresnan to Powell, no run, bouncer, sails through above the batsman's head

End of over 16 (4 runs) West Indies 50/3
KOA Powell    32* (43b 7x4)      TT Bresnan    3-1-9-0
S Chanderpaul    0* (3b)      JM Anderson    8-4-14-2

16.1

Anderson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, pitched up outside off and Chanderpaul punches through cover, where Alastair Cook dives over the ball - Shiv's up and, er, running? walking? crabbing?

16.2

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, bouncer, climbing high above the dimunitive Shiv - that's Anderson's one for the over

16.3

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, back of a length, angled in towards the body, defended on the back foot

16.4

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, short again and veering down the leg side, Chanderpaul moves across and out of the way

16.5

Anderson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, edged but short of the cordon! Chanderpaul stayed back and pushed at one outside off that he would normally leave alone, the ball bouncing between second and third slip, with both Swann and Bresnan only half-committed

16.6

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, touch short again and dabbed into the leg side

End of over 17 (8 runs) West Indies 58/3
S Chanderpaul    8* (9b 2x4)      JM Anderson    9-4-22-2
KOA Powell    32* (43b 7x4)      TT Bresnan    3-1-9-0

17.1

Bresnan to Powell, no run, fullish outside off, pushed out towards point

17.2

Bresnan to Powell, no run, pitched up and left alone outside off

17.3

Bresnan to Powell, no run, length, sliding across and Powell plays no stroke

17.4

Bresnan to Powell, 1 run, bangs this one in and Powell, as at Lord's miscues an attempted pull, this time top-edging high over the slip cordon, where Strauss, running back, is a yard or two short of making the catch

17.5

Bresnan to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, Chanderpaul stays back and is hit on the back leg - Bresnan is very interested but replays show it actually pitched just outside leg stump and hit him outside off

17.6

Bresnan to Chanderpaul, FOUR, back of a length, on the body and flicked to fine leg for four

"Why do you have such a problem with watching Chanderpaul's batting?" chides Sachan. "His strike rate is no worse than Struass or Cook's. Variety makes the game interesting." Strike rate and aesthetics aren't quite the same thing, Sachan. And they're both openers ... but anyway, he's off to a flyer here, 12 off 11 balls!

End of over 18 (5 runs) West Indies 63/3
S Chanderpaul    12* (11b 3x4)      TT Bresnan    4-1-14-0
KOA Powell    33* (47b 7x4)      JM Anderson    9-4-22-2

Broad back on, in place of Anderson, for another spell before lunch

18.1

Broad to Powell, no run, round the wicket, length ball and pushed into the off side

18.2

Broad to Powell, OUT, this time Powell doesn't get away with it, edging a good length delivery straight to third slip. He'd played patiently and could probably have left that but England have well and truly prized the lid off the can now. Anderson's been involved in all four wickets, by the way, though he almost shelled that catch, the ball popping out of the hands before being clutched to his chest

KOA Powell c Anderson b Broad 33 (81m 49b 7x4 0x6) SR: 67.34

In comes Samuels ...

18.3

Broad to Samuels, 1 run, ... who's off the mark first ball, keeping out a full, swinging ball on the stump with a tickle to leg

18.4

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, back of a length, angling in and Chanderpaul wears one on the groinal area - he's down

The physio comes on, so we've time for this gem from Andy "Stats Problem" Zaltzman: "Anderson's opening spell of 2-22 off 9 overs means that, in England's last five Tests (3rd v Pakistan, the two in SL and the two this summer v WI), his 1st-innings opening spells have totalled 11 wickets for 99 runs in 39 overs. He's taken at least two wickets in all five of those spells (2-18, 2-10, 3-29, 2-23 and now 2-22). Handy performance."

Prior was also stretching his Achilles during that break. Good job Bairstow's in the side ...

18.5

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, back of a length, Chanderpaul gets his box out of the way of this one, blocking to leg

18.6

Broad to Chanderpaul, no run, beats the outside edge, slightly back of a length delivery, flicks the shirt on its way through to Prior

End of over 19 (1 run) West Indies 64/4
S Chanderpaul    12* (14b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    6-0-20-2
MN Samuels    1* (1b)      TT Bresnan    4-1-14-0

19.1

19.2

Bresnan to Samuels, no run, straighter and this time gone, lbw! Samuel asks for the review, though ... and Hawk Eye shows it would have gone some way over the stumps. That's what the system is for. Samuels is reasonably tall and it hit him above the knee roll

"So you hate to watch the current top ranked batsmen, one of the top 10 run scorers in Test history... So I get what kind of chap you are - the kind who bags a guy who has scored somewhere north of 10,000 more Test runs than you. Pathetic." Hate? Seems like there's more of that in your comment than mine, Matt ...

1pm: England's session by a stretch, though they'd have traded a couple of those wickets in return for snaffling Chanderpaul. Again, England made devastating use of the new ball, and again it's the obdurate little bar ... nacle who carries West Indies' batting hopes on his shoulders; if they're not to make a complete hash of winning the toss, he'll need to be there at the end of the day. With Shiv, it's perfectly possible. Gnasher will be back in half and hour for the start of the second session. Why not check in on the county blog, while you munch your spam sandwiches?

Graeme Swann will continue after the break. Cook gets the pads on. Surely he knew he'd need them when he came out? Anyway.

Welcome back to the afternoon session. Andrew here for the first hour to see if West Indies can mount a recovery. On that theme, here's a great comment from Neil. "Does Chanderpaul now sign his name with an asterisk on the end?"

29.5

Swann to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted, on the stumps, leans out and nudges to midwicket

45.3

Swann to Chanderpaul, OUT, tossed up, pitches on the stumps, beats the bat and hits the back leg. Rauf says no but England review it. Swann is convinced. Is it hitting off? The height is okay and there's no bat involved. They've got him, the decision is overturned! It pitched on off and straightened, would have hit about three-quarters of the way up. Swann has his first Test wicket at Trent Bridge and England have got their man

S Chanderpaul lbw b Swann 46 (130m 86b 9x4 0x6) SR: 53.48

Not even 100 balls for Shiv this time - but he has helped revive the West Indies innings. Ramdin the new man and Swan has a short leg in

45.4

Swann to Ramdin, 1 run, flatter, on the stumps and turning across, flicked off the legs for one

Silly point for Samuels, no short leg

45.5

45.6

46.5

Bresnan to Samuels, no run, length ball on the stumps, punched to mid-on

46.6

Bresnan to Samuels, 4 byes, attempted bouncer, doesn't get up much but does swerve viciously down the leg side and away for four byes - lucky not to be wides, really

"Had to look up Chaka Demus and Pliers," says Matt Frost. "Seem like a cheerful pair. Where did you drag that simile from? Anyway, academic now as Pliers walks back to the pavilion." You'll never forget 'Tease Me' after you've heard it once

D Ramdin    1* (7b)      GP Swann    9-3-23-1
MN Samuels    33* (96b 5x4)      TT Bresnan    11-4-33-0

Bresnan searching for something to justify his spot ahead of Finn ...

48.1

Bresnan to Samuels, 1 run, back of a length, turned into the leg side

48.2

Bresnan to Ramdin, no run, short again, stays back and defends towards mid-on

48.3

Bresnan to Ramdin, OUT, bowled him! Bresnan gets the sought-after reward for his efforts. The ball seamed back a touch, maybe a bit too quick for Ramdin and he played back, failed to get his bat down, the ball clipping the top of off via the pad. Ramdin done

D Ramdin b Bresnan 1 (11m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

The captain, Sammy, to the crease ...

DJG Sammy    0* (3b)      TT Bresnan    12-4-34-1
MN Samuels    34* (97b 5x4)      GP Swann    9-3-23-1

The West Indies recovery has been checked. They need something from Sammy, who's better than a No. 8 batsman.

Broad replaces the wicket-taker, Swann. As John says "that's twice in a row that Swann has had Chanderpaul lbw ... but for the fact that England didn't review, the result would have been the same in the first innings of the first Test too." Good spot. Too early to call him Swann's bunny?

49.1

Broad to Samuels, no run, good length, pacy delivery seaming back, flicks the pads as Samuels plays no stroke but he was well outside the line andit wasn't coming back enough

49.2

Broad to Samuels, no run, line and length, off-stump line, defended

49.3
