  • Overs 1-50

106.5

Taylor to Anderson, no run, Anderson does a Jack Russell to his first delivery, fishing and missing before withdrawing his bat

106.6

Taylor to Anderson, no run, beaten outside off. A nibbly little feel to one which held its line

England 368/8   JM Anderson 0* (2b)
107.2

Baker to Anderson, no run, down the leg side

107.3

Baker to Anderson, no run, left alone outside off

107.4

Baker to Anderson, no run, just outside off, Anderson again nibbles. Or did he? It's hard to tell whether he's fishing or leaving

107.5

Baker to Anderson, no run, a good slower ball which deceives and beats Anderson's attempt to cover-drive it - too full and loopy

107.6

Baker to Anderson, no run, shapes back into Anderson who finally gets bat on it, and the Lord's crowd all acknowledge it with drearily ironic applause and droll clapping

England 369/8   JM Anderson 0* (7b)
108.4

Taylor to Anderson, no run, angled out to point

108.5

Taylor to Anderson, no run, excellent delivery which holds its line, angling across Anderson who is beaten once more

108.6

Taylor to Anderson, no run, plays and misses once more. He looks horribly out of touch

England 374/8   JM Anderson 0* (10b)
109.2

Edwards to Anderson, no run, short of a length, Anderson tries to play it off the back foot but misses it entirely

109.3

Edwards to Anderson, no run, ouch - Anderson's hit on the helmet and he's on the deck. A bouncer which he appeared to have lined up well, but he could get his head out of the way and, as he turned his head to the left, it whacked him on the back of his helmet. A piece of blue plastic flies off, and on comes the physio. "The helmet gives too many people a false sense of security," says Mikey Holding. Anderson just took his eye off the ball.

109.4

Edwards to Anderson, no run, short but wide and easily handled by Anderson

109.5

Edwards to Anderson, no run, nasty one but very well played. A bouncer rising into Anderson's chest who jumps back and drops it down leg. As he does so, his head again snaps away - understandably so given the thwacking he received just now. He's fighting with every ounce of concentration to keep an eye on the ball

109.6

Edwards to Anderson, no run, great ball, swinging away from Anderson's wafty bat

England 375/8   JM Anderson 0* (15b)
110.5

Taylor to Anderson, no run, fuller outside off, Anderson tries to scorch it through the covers but misses

110.6

Taylor to Anderson, 1 run, and he's off the mark! That's his 47th innings without making a duck. Monstrous effort - and that's lunch.

England 377/8   JM Anderson 1* (17b)
111.1

Edwards to Anderson, no run, cuts and misses outside off...Edwards still searching for his fifth wicket

111.2

Edwards to Anderson, OUT, and there it is, Edwards has five as Anderson cuts again and gets a regulation top edge through to Ramdin...a great moment for Edwards who salutes his team-mates and soaks up the moment

JM Anderson c †Ramdin b Edwards 1 (24m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 5.26

England 377/9   JM Anderson 1 (19b)
