25,26,27,28 May 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

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

West Indies 9/1   KOA Powell 9* (7b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1.2-0-9-1

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 26/2   KOA Powell 15* (19b 3x4)   JM Anderson 4.3-2-6-1

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 42/3   KOA Powell 28* (37b 6x4)   JM Anderson 7.3-3-14-2

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

West Indies 63/4   S Chanderpaul 12* (11b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 5.2-0-19-2

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

West Indies 125/5   MN Samuels 28* (88b 4x4)   GP Swann 7.3-2-21-1

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

West Indies 136/6   MN Samuels 34* (97b 5x4)   TT Bresnan 11.3-4-34-1

Bresnan to Sammy, OUT, and this time Sammy's adventure costs him, picking out Pietersen at deep square leg. The captain departs after making a rollicking ton, trying to fetch Bresnan's bouncer from outside off but lofting high into the clear blue sky. England probably deserved a bit of luck after several near misses, as Sammy walks off to polite, well-earned applause

DJG Sammy c Pietersen b Bresnan 106 (211m 156b 17x4 1x6) SR: 67.94

West Indies 340/7   MN Samuels 116* (256b 16x4)   TT Bresnan 22.5-4-88-2

Bresnan to Samuels, OUT, pitched up, slashes hard and gone! Anderson claims the catch and Marlon misses out on that double he had promised. He was clearly trying to force the pace, aiming a big boomer over cover but slicing to gully. West Indies lose their second centurion and Bresnan's figures get another slight glossing

MN Samuels c Anderson b Bresnan 117 (346m 261b 16x4 0x6) SR: 44.82

West Indies 341/8   KAJ Roach 0* (4b)   TT Bresnan 23.2-4-88-3

Bresnan to Roach, OUT, gone! Bresnan has his fourth, fluffing his figures nicely, as Roach pushes away from his body at a good-length delivery and it is well held by Strauss diving to his right low at first slip

KAJ Roach c Strauss b Bresnan 7 (30m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

West Indies 360/9   S Shillingford 12* (13b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 25.5-4-98-4

Swann to Shillingford, OUT, job done. Shillingford has a charge at Swann who spears it wider and quicker outside off. It beats the swing and Prior whips off the bails. Credit to Swann for out-thinking the tailender.

S Shillingford st †Prior b Swann 16 (33m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.19

West Indies 370/10   R Rampaul 6* (7b 1x4)   GP Swann 20.2-4-62-2
