Taylor to Strauss, OUT, well, well, out of nowhere West Indies have a breakthrough as Strauss plays a loose back-foot drive and gets an edge that carries through low to Ramdin...important breakthrough for the visitors and that should get them into the game

AJ Strauss c †Ramdin b Taylor 16 (32m 24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 28/1   AN Cook 10* (18b 1x4)   JE Taylor 3.4-0-16-1

Edwards to Cook, OUT, there's the breakthrough for West Indies, a fullish delivery on off stump that Cook plays forward to and he gets an inside edge which crashes into the stumps...a disappointing end for Cook after doing the hard work, but Edwards is delighted

AN Cook b Edwards 35 (136m 96b 4x4 0x6) SR: 36.45

England 92/2   RS Bopara 35* (79b 4x4)   FH Edwards 5.5-1-20-1

Edwards to Pietersen, OUT, and goes first ball! Great piece of bowling from Edwards and a superb catch from Ramdin, pitched up on the stumps and there's enough late movement to take the outside edge...Ramdin was nearly wrong-footed but stuck his right hand out and grabbed a brilliant catch

KP Pietersen c †Ramdin b Edwards 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 92/3   RS Bopara 35* (79b 4x4)   FH Edwards 6-1-20-2

Edwards to Collingwood, OUT, and another one goes, brilliant bowling from Edwards, a full ball outside off and Collingwood is caught flat-footed as he prods forward and the edge goes low to second slip

PD Collingwood c Smith b Edwards 8 (26m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 109/4   RS Bopara 43* (96b 5x4)   FH Edwards 9-2-27-3

Edwards to Prior, OUT, it's number four for Edwards, a loose shot from Prior as he drives off the back foot straight to cover...it's one of his favourite shots but this time he was a bit early on it and couldn't find the gap

MJ Prior c Simmons b Edwards 42 (78m 56b 8x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

England 193/5   RS Bopara 83* (168b 10x4)   FH Edwards 11.1-2-38-4

Benn to Broad, OUT, gone this time, at last, as he cuts this shorter ball to Taylor's right in the gully. Subdued celebrations from the West Indians and a fine 38 from Broad (albeit one with at least three missed chances)

SCJ Broad c Taylor b Benn 38 (91m 71b 5x4 0x6) SR: 53.52

England 262/6   RS Bopara 110* (228b 13x4)   SJ Benn 23.5-3-73-1

Benn to Bresnan, OUT, got him! Well, it was a quick ball scooting into his pads but it did seem to be going over the top to me. The umpire knows better, though, and up goes the finger

TT Bresnan lbw b Benn 9 (16m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

England 275/7   RS Bopara 111* (233b 13x4)   SJ Benn 25.2-4-78-2

Taylor to Bopara, OUT, got him! A floaty half-volley which he drives while rather misbalanced, the ball scooting straight to mid-off where Nash holds a fine catch

RS Bopara c Nash b Taylor 143 (437m 284b 17x4 0x6) SR: 50.35

England 368/8   GP Swann 55* (80b 8x4 1x6)   JE Taylor 21.4-2-76-2

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   GP Swann 63* (89b 9x4 1x6)   FH Edwards 26.2-4-92-5

Edwards to Onions, OUT, well, that was brief...a low full toss crashes through Onions' defences to make a mess of the stumps. He didn't seem too keen to get in line.

G Onions b Edwards 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 377/10   GP Swann 63* (89b 9x4 1x6)   FH Edwards 26.3-4-92-6
