  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss c †Ramdin b Powell 15 35 27 2 0 55.55
8.1 gone, another start and another poor stroke from Strauss. It was in his area - a horrible ball, in truth. Too wide, too short, Straus flayed at it and went for a cut, but got a thin edge through to the wicketkeeper 38/1
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Gayle 42 120 76 2 0 55.26
26.6 gone! Round the wicket, pitched outside off, nips back and holds its line - a middle peg one - as it raps Cook on the front pad. That was out, no doubt 91/2
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Morton b Taylor 103 235 173 11 0 59.53
60.2 gone and Vaughan is furious. A bouncer which he swivelled on and appeared to time well, but deep midwicket was lurking on the boundary, just moving to his right to take a very fine catch indeed - inches from the rope 254/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Taylor b Bravo 226 432 262 24 2 86.25
122.3 he has scythed this, going inside out and skying it to Jerome Taylor - it's gone miles up in the air - but Taylor runs in from deep point to take a very fine catch 570/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Gayle b Collymore 29 59 44 3 0 65.90
71.5 got the wicket he deserved - Collingwood falling to a thick edge to first slip. The ball was planted on off stump, Collingwood stepped down and the ball - and Gayle - did the rest 316/4
View dismissal IR Bell c †Ramdin b Collymore 5 15 12 1 0 41.66
75.2 Collymore's struck again! More swing and Bell feathers through to Ramdin who makes no mistake. Collymore appeals but Bell doesn't even wait for the verdict 329/5
View dismissal MJ Prior b Powell 75 156 99 9 0 75.75
110.3 brilliant delivery. You can't argue with that, or even play it. Pitched on off on a menacing length, nipped back a touch, Prior poked at it, but missed completely. Cracking ball 489/6

  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Sidebottom 11 19 17 2 0 64.70
4.5 straight one does the damage, and that's Sidebottom's first Test wicket, and it's taken him six years to get one; that one would have taken leg 17/1
View dismissal D Ganga lbw b Sidebottom 5 28 17 0 0 29.41
6.2 over the wicket, pitches in line, comes back - Ganga leaves that, and he shouldn't have 23/2
View dismissal DS Smith c Cook b Plunkett 26 58 37 4 0 70.27
17.6 and another one. A good length this from Plunkett, luring him into the drive and he got a thick outside edge, the ball flying to Cook in the gully. Good catch, too, taking it front of his face 74/4
View dismissal SC Joseph c Strauss b Harmison 13 42 37 2 0 35.13
16.2 but he's got him this time. Very full this time and Joseph went for a drive, without moving his feet, to hand Strauss a very comfortable catch at first slip 68/3
View dismissal RS Morton c †Prior b Harmison 5 17 13 0 0 38.46
20.1 and another; Harmison roars his loudest appeal of the summer, but Morton cannot believe he's been given out. It cut back into him, Morton going back into his crease and tried to defend it. The ball flew to Prior's left who took a good tumbling catch, and up goes the finger. Morton is fuming 82/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo b Sidebottom 23 69 42 4 0 54.76
32.5 bowled round his legs, pegged back leg with one which pitched on middle-and-off and moved right across Bravo whose resistance comes to an end 124/8
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Prior b Plunkett 6 13 15 1 0 40.00
23.1 terrific ball - it was the perfect length, inducing the drive and he fell for the bait. Very sloppy shot and a thick outside edge handed Prior a comfortable, if not entirely straightforward catch, well taken to his right 94/6
View dismissal DBL Powell c Collingwood b Plunkett 8 21 15 1 0 53.33
27.4 and as soon as he finds his line and length, he gets another wicket. Full, holding its line before shaping away at the last moment, a drive hands Collingwood a sharp chance at second slip 114/7
JE Taylor not out 23 42 23 4 0 100.00
View dismissal CD Collymore c Strauss b Sidebottom 3 19 12 0 0 25.00
36.6 and that's Sidebottom's fourth wicket. Collymore undone by the ball swinging back in from outside off and, squared up, he sends an outside edge to Strauss at first slip 146/10

6.2 to Ganga, over the wicket, pitches in line, comes back - Ganga leaves that, and he shouldn't have 23/2

23.1 to Ramdin, terrific ball - it was the perfect length, inducing the drive and he fell for the bait. Very sloppy shot and a thick outside edge handed Prior a comfortable, if not entirely straightforward catch, well taken to his right 94/6

View dismissal CH Gayle c †Prior b Plunkett 13 50 30 1 0 43.33
11.2 good length, angled across the left hander, Gayle plays from back in the crease, gets an edge and Prior dives to his left to hold the regulation chance 30/3
View dismissal D Ganga lbw b Sidebottom 9 29 23 1 0 39.13
6.5 pitched just on leg, and would have gone on to hit the top of off. Swing there from Sidebottom who picks up his fifth wicket of the day - but a marginal decision 20/1
View dismissal DBL Powell lbw b Sidebottom 0 11 10 0 0 0.00
8.6 got him! He never should have left that one, in truth, the length that Sidebottom was looking for, right on middle-and-off, straightening and quite unplayable 22/2
View dismissal DS Smith c Strauss b Sidebottom 16 40 23 2 0 69.56
18.1 full, swinging away from Smith who limply hung his bat out, the edge flew to Strauss at first slip at chest height, he got two hands to the ball, juggled and caught it one handed at the second attempt as he fell to his left 57/5
View dismissal SC Joseph lbw b Sidebottom 1 19 14 0 0 7.14
16.1 pitched leg, swung into Joseph and would have gone on to hit leg. He had been playing Sidebottom from the crease and that was always going to be a high-risk strategy. Sure enough, the first time he missed, he perished 47/4
View dismissal RS Morton c †Prior b Harmison 25 78 62 3 0 40.32
34.5 another bouncer but Morton couldn't get on top of it, like Bravo did in the previous ball, skying it straight above his head and Prior sprinted in to take a comfortable catch by the stumps 120/6
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Plunkett b Panesar 52 94 74 7 1 70.27
41.6 again he skips down the track, Panesar fires another one in and, rushed and cramped, Bravo's shot loops to Plunkett at mid-off 141/8
View dismissal D Ramdin lbw b Harmison 5 20 20 0 0 25.00
40.5 full, really fired in, strikes Ramdin on the pads as he looks to turn it into the leg side and Rauf upholds a vociferous appeal 141/7
View dismissal JE Taylor b Harmison 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
42.1 banged in, Taylor swishes more than hooks, the ball drops down off his shoulder-glove-shoulder and into the stumps. A bail plops apologetically to the ground and it's all over 141/10
