  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Ramdin b Gayle 26 95 66 4 0 39.39
20.4 got him! A wicket out of nowhere from Gayle. Down the leg side and Strauss went for a sweep, rightly so, but couldn't connect and instead gloved it to Ramdin 69/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Gayle b Benn 160 485 339 17 0 47.19
113.4 got him! Benn deserves that. Cook's insistence on trying to work everything to leg has cost him, and he gets a leading edge to Gayle at short mid-off 410/4
View dismissal RS Bopara b Baker 108 251 208 13 1 51.92
85.5 what a delivery! Nips back sharply on Bopara, the ball shooting past the bat and onto his off stump 282/2
View dismissal JM Anderson b Edwards 14 57 39 3 0 35.89
96.3 he's got him this time. Full again, takes a deflection off the pads, and straight into middle stump 326/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Simmons b Benn 49 94 57 9 0 85.96
117.5 whoops! Pietersen wanted a big shot for his half-century, he was aiming over long-off, but Benn found a hint of turn, and a fat edge looped out to point 419/5
PD Collingwood not out 60 127 85 4 0 70.58
View dismissal MJ Prior c Benn b Simmons 63 81 83 7 0 75.90
138.6 a mistimed welly straight into the hands of mid-on. It was only a matter of time, and that's Lendl Simmons's maiden Test wicket, so hurrahs and applause for him 513/6

  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DS Smith b Anderson 7 19 14 1 0 50.00
4.1 bang! Got him! Anderson finds his length and, with it, some inswing - both of which are too good for Smith and his concreted feet, the ball bending back to bowl him through the gate 18/1
View dismissal CH Gayle* lbw b Anderson 19 42 24 4 0 79.16
8.2 that's the one! Almost a carbon-copy delivery, but six inches straighter. That raps the pads, but is surely going over the top. Asoka de Silva doesn't think so, and that is a massive, if fortuitous, breakthrough 38/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Bresnan b Broad 100 222 138 14 0 72.46
52.3 well Broad's clearly been working to a plan here! He bangs in a superb bouncer angling on the body and Sarwan hangs his bat high to fend it off but the ball clips his glove and balloons to Bresnan at the slips 188/5
View dismissal LMP Simmons c Strauss b Anderson 8 31 18 2 0 44.44
14.6 Anderson has three! Superb bowling from Jimmy, angled in on off stump, straightening, taking the edge, and Strauss at first slip completes a dramatic-looking catch diving away to his right and losing his glasses in the process 68/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Prior b Broad 23 138 103 2 0 22.33
44.6 that extra delivery has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for England! Broad bowls the offcutter outside the off stump and has Chanderpaul fishing for it, there's a very thin edge to the keeper and de Silva agrees with the rest 167/4
View dismissal BP Nash b Anderson 10 66 52 1 0 19.23
62.3 the full length ball does the trick, and in such unlucky circumstances! Nash gets the toe-end of the bat on an attempted drive, the ball loops agonisingly backwards into the crease, and flicks into the leg stump as Nash belatedly realises what is happening and attempts to deflect it 205/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c Swann b Anderson 55 140 82 7 1 67.07
84.3 that's a five-for for Anderson, bowls a good length delivery outside off and gets it to come back in slightly, Ramdin pushes forward and gets a thick outside edge to Swann at second slip 310/10
View dismissal JE Taylor lbw b Onions 10 14 11 2 0 90.90
65.4 absolutely arrow-straight, Taylor plays all around it, and that is utterly plumb! Well bowled Onions, that's his first of the match, and England are right into the tail now 216/7
View dismissal SJ Benn run out (Pietersen) 35 60 48 6 1 72.91
79.3 from Swann, a wicket against the run of play here, Benn shovels a full delivery towards long-on and the ball drops in front of Pietersen, Benn's ball watching and fails to make his ground before the direct hit from KP 286/8
View dismissal FH Edwards c Strauss b Broad 11 21 16 2 0 68.75
83.2 one of the more comical dismissals in this match for sure! Edwards shapes to biff a short delivery over deep square-leg but he flays too early and the ball clips the toe of the bat and falls safely in Strauss's hands at first slip 310/9

View dismissal DS Smith lbw b Swann 11 53 41 1 0 26.82
12.1 there it is! Swann's bunny falls again. Straight, straightening, and too straight to miss. Utterly and totally out, and is that the fifth time he's got him in Tests? I believe so 53/1
View dismissal CH Gayle* c Strauss b Onions 54 82 43 6 2 125.58
17.4 that's a double blow! Onions bangs it in short and the bounce catches Gayle by surprise, he pokes his bat out and the ball balloons off the top half of the bat and goes to Strauss who hops and takes the catch at first slip 89/3
View dismissal RR Sarwan lbw b Onions 22 25 21 4 0 104.76
17.2 shuffles across his stumps, exposes at least two of them and it's plumb, Onions lands it just outside the line of offstump and gets it to come back in with the angle, Sarwan is squared up by the lack of bounce and he's history, easy one for Asoka de Silva 88/2
View dismissal LMP Simmons c sub (SG Borthwick) b Anderson 10 57 34 0 0 29.41
30.2 oh, that's a horribly loose shot by Simmons, rocking back and guiding it straight to cover. Misjudged both the length and the pace of the delivery 141/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Collingwood b Anderson 47 113 82 6 0 57.31
42.5 comes forward to defend as the ball holds its line - and Collingwood, the stand-in wicketkeeper, takes a simple catch behind, prompting extravagant celebrations! 168/9
View dismissal BP Nash c sub (SG Borthwick) b Bresnan 1 8 9 0 0 11.11
31.6 another cheap dismissal! An inswinger on the off-stump, bending back sharply and Nash flicks it uppishly straight into square-leg's hands, and that's Bresnan's maiden Test wicket 142/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c Anderson b Bresnan 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
33.2 gone! Ramdin and West Indies cannot cope with the outswing, and he comes tentatively forward, edging it to Anderson at third slip who takes a simple catch 146/6
View dismissal JE Taylor b Anderson 5 14 12 1 0 41.66
36.4 bowled him! A 90mph inswinger - Taylor was expecting the outswinger - and his off stump is cartwheeling out of the ground. Outstanding bowling 163/7
View dismissal SJ Benn b Anderson 0 18 12 0 0 0.00
40.6 bowled him with a beauty! Angling into Benn's middle stump, it shapes away to knock back the off stump 167/8
View dismissal FH Edwards c sub (K Turner) b Bresnan 4 14 7 1 0 57.14
43.6 got him! Goes for a big pull but top-edges it miles and miles in the air, the ball spiralling as fine-leg steadies himself to take a good catch. And England celebrate a 2-0 series-win 176/10
