61.4

Simmons to Broad, 1 wide, even wider and called this time by umpire Davis

61.4

Simmons to Broad, no run, tries to correct his line but goes the leg side, this is a waste to the new batsman

61.5

Simmons to Broad, FOUR, lovely shot by Broad, forces with super timing off the back foot through cover and it beats the fielders to the boundary...that was a shot of a top-order batsman

62.5

Edwards to Broad, FOUR, top shot, another cracker from Broad as he drives off the front foot this time and it races through cover

62.6

Edwards to Broad, no run, dropped, a fairly tough chance goes down in the gully as Benn can't cling onto a cut shot from Broad...it was travelling quite quickly, but he is a tall man and probably should have held on

England 205/5   SCJ Broad 9* (12b 2x4)

63.2

Baker to Broad, no run, thick outside edge from Broad, lands just short of Benn in the gully this time...Broad living dangerously at the moment

63.6

Baker to Broad, no run, very full outside off, left alone

England 210/5   SCJ Broad 12* (15b 2x4)

65.1

Edwards to Broad, no run, very wide, he was lucky to get away with that one

66.4

68.4

Edwards to Broad, no run, wide outside off, Broad decides against having a dart at this one

England 241/5   SCJ Broad 28* (48b 3x4)

75.2

Benn to Broad, no run, pushed back to the bowler

75.3

Benn to Broad, no run, and I think Ramdin has dropped him here. Quicker ball and Broad was late on it, nicking it through to the keeper who was similarly late on the delivery

75.4

Benn to Broad, no run, Broad's forward and defending

79.2

Benn to Broad, no run, blocked on the front foot

79.3

Benn to Broad, no run, fuller and quicker and he goes for a drive but gets an inside edge. Clever, accurate bowling

79.4

Benn to Broad, no run, ah this is good stuff from Benn. A touch shorter, but again Broad's beaten for pace as he tries to cut

79.5

Benn to Broad, no run, oh dear. He's dropped him! Make that drop number six. A flappy, loose stroke straight back to Benn who just couldn't quite reach it...but his jump was late, and he ought to have snaffled that

79.6

Benn to Broad, no run, pushed back to the bowler

England 260/5   SCJ Broad 37* (65b 5x4)

80.3

Taylor to Broad, 1 run, dropped to leg and Chanderpaul's throw is quick...but misses the stumps. That would've been seriously close - lazy running by Bopara
