  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AB Barath c Anderson b Broad 42 136 101 9 0 41.58
31.6 and Barath's life is extended by only a couple of balls, as Anderson takes the catch in the gully at the second attempt! The delivery wasn't full enough to drive and Barath's expansive stroke resulted in only a thick edge, which Anderson parried into the air goalkeeper-style before grasping on the way down. Rash shot from Barath, after a very encouraging knock 86/3
View dismissal KOA Powell b Anderson 5 36 29 1 0 17.24
8.5 83.7 mph, this is the inswinger and bowls him! Powell thought of leaving again and was so late on it, lost his off stump. Anderson set him up beautifully with consecutive deliveries that angled away, Powell shaped to ignore another but it swung in and the defensive stroke got nowhere near the ball which clattered into the top of off stump 13/1
View dismissal KA Edwards lbw b Anderson 1 26 14 0 0 7.14
14.5 84.8 mph, full and beats the attempted flick across the line, that's plumb and England have a second before drinks. Stone dead, simply missed one that darted in trying to play to leg. Wasn't a great stroke and Edwards didn't look too comfortable. Well bowled Anderson 32/2
View dismissal DM Bravo run out (Bell/†Prior/Swann) 29 105 74 4 0 39.18
39.6 Swann to Chanderpaul, a horrendous mix-up and Bravo has been run out! The Keystone Kops would have been embarrassed by running like that. Chanderpaul flicked the ball off his legs, where it was quickly fielded behind square. Bravo was well down the pitch before he realised that Chanderpaul was having none of it, even though the junior man was running to the danger end ... the throw wasn't great but Chanderpaul had already elected to return his crease (though he only just got his bat in before Bravo) and despite a dodgy relay from Prior to Swann, there was all the time in the world for the bowler to collect and break the bails. Prior had covered his face with his gloves but it was far worse to watch from the Windies point of view! 100/4
S Chanderpaul not out 87 242 175 12 0 49.71
View dismissal MN Samuels c Bairstow b Broad 31 110 84 4 0 36.90
67.4 78.7 mph, just as things were looking quiet Samuels scoops a loose drive straight to Bairstow standing at point! Too quiet perhaps, for Samuels, who undoes his good work in the same fashion as Barath with a loose shot. West Indies are still in a favourable position, having lost the toss, but that will give England a sniff 181/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c Strauss b Broad 6 6 5 1 0 120.00
69.3 82.8 mph, gone, edging to slip! Broad pulled his length back a fraction, Ramdin couldn't get forward as confidently and ended up fencing at the ball, a textbook snick flying into the cordon, where Strauss gleefully clings on. I'll stop mentioning how well the Windies are doing now, shall I? 187/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Bresnan b Broad 17 50 36 3 0 47.22
81.6 82.3 mph, caught in the gully! Totally square up and pops a catch to Bresnan who claimed it low with two hands. Sammy's ended up pirouetting having looked to clip a length ball to leg, he pops it to gully of a thick leading edge, chance for England now to rip out this tail with the new ball 219/7
View dismissal KAJ Roach c & b Broad 6 15 7 1 0 85.71
85.1 79.0 mph, chipped back to the bowler and taken really well tumbling to his left. Pretty poor stroke, another one of those feetless drives, this comes off a little high on the bat and just pops back towards Broad who claims a smart catch for his five-wicket haul. Full and straight and let it swing - simple cricket has produced dividends today for Broad 231/8
View dismissal FH Edwards c †Prior b Broad 2 19 16 0 0 12.50
89.4 79.2 mph, finally Edwards nicks one, full and straight and it pays off in the end. A decent edge is going straight to Andrew Strauss at first slip but Matt Prior dives in front of him and takes it with a full-length dive, a fine catch. Little nudge forward from Edwards, he had to get an edge sooner or later, and this one he does 243/9
View dismissal ST Gabriel c Swann b Broad 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
89.5 79.9 mph, out first ball! Just what England wanted and Broad has seven wickets in a Test innings for the first time. Perfect start. On a length, just outside off, Gabriel plopped a bat at it and got a healthy edge at a good height for Swann who took a chance as easy as they come. Ideal delivery and an ideal start to the day for the hosts 243/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Ramdin b Roach 122 382 258 19 0 47.28
83.3 85.0 mph, this one is quick and straight, jumping off a length and beating Strauss' inside edge. There's an appeal behind the stumps, umpire Erasmus says no - West Indies are going to review it. Ah, this is interesting - Hot Spot is showing a feather of an edge. Strauss will have to go, though he looks like he'll need dragging from the crease. Again the crowd stands in applause - but Darren Sammy probably deserves a small hand for making perfect use of the DRS. Roach, who as with Cook's wicket yesterday didn't look all that interested, makes the breakthrough 266/4
View dismissal AN Cook b Roach 26 57 42 4 0 61.90
11.5 86.1 mph, dragged it on and West Indies get the breakthrough as Cook cuts a ball that was too close to play in the manner he did with such an angled bat and he's chopped it onto his leg stump, perhaps the trajectory of Roach made the stroke a little more difficult because it took the bottom edge, he didn't really move his feet and was perhaps better trying to punch that through cover 47/1
View dismissal IJL Trott c †Ramdin b Sammy 58 226 134 6 0 43.28
63.3 74.7 mph, now they've got one, Trott caught behind! It may not be the man they wanted but most fielding teams are glad to see the back of England's No. 3. Sammy is rewarded for his dedication to line and length, plugging away outside off and drawing a little nibble from Trott, Ramdin pouching it safely as the ball seamed away just a fraction 194/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c †Ramdin b Samuels 32 61 51 5 0 62.74
76.5 step away to cut and he's nicked it behind! Perhaps not into the best position, weight going back, it was a thick edge and a jolly good catch by Ramdin who clung on well. A poor ball and an average dismissal gives West Indies something to cheer about ...they won't be slapped around by KP anymore in this innings 244/3
View dismissal IR Bell c Powell b Gabriel 61 184 105 4 0 58.09
113.3 86.3 mph, pulled away into the deep and a fine catch, excellent take running in from the deep square fence, it was a low chance and Powell dived forward and took it with both hands, it was a well struck shot but in line with the fielder who took it nicely 398/10
View dismissal JM Bairstow lbw b Roach 16 32 27 3 0 59.25
89.5 86.1 mph, full, nips back and gottim! Again it's Kemar Roach who makes something happen for West Indies. The delivery enticed Bairstow forward again, attempting to drive but he was beaten by a bit of seam movement and hit on the front pad. No doubts about that one, and no review asked for. An attractive cameo from Yorkshire's Jonny Bairstow ends and West Indies are edging their way back into this match 292/5
View dismissal MJ Prior b Gabriel 19 33 18 2 0 105.55
96.1 85.2 mph, pitched up, straight through the gate and Prior's stumps explode! A lovely moment for Shannon Gabriel, who celebrates his maiden Test wicket with his arms outstretched, a huge grin on his face. It was a well directed delivery, maybe a touch quicker than Prior was expecting as he tried to whip it to leg ... and the bails pop like bread from a toaster. Another brief-but-productive partnership is ended. Was that a cameo? 320/6
View dismissal TT Bresnan c †Ramdin b Sammy 0 6 6 0 0 0.00
97.4 75.2 mph, sharp delivery, Bresnan stays back and pushes at it - nicked off and gone! Good bowling from Sammy, slightly back of a length but again leaving the batsman off the pitch, Bresnan was caught on the crease and Ramdin claimed the edge. And there wasn't even time for a "Yorkshire's Timmy Bresnan" before he was off 323/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad b FH Edwards 10 32 22 1 0 45.45
104.3 83.2 mph, bowled first ball! Edwards slips one through Broad's back foot defensive stroke and clips the off bail. Quick delivery and Broad was late on the ball that skidded on, as Edwards' bowling tends to do. Fine delivery first up and another strike for the Windies 342/8
View dismissal GP Swann b Gabriel 30 33 25 6 0 120.00
111.6 full and straight, Swann goes to flick across the line and misses ending a fine brief knock from Swann, who was late on that and it skidded through off the pad onto middle and leg stumps, a second Test wicket for Gabriel, that was well bowled 397/9

12.5 85.5 mph, and this time the nick sticks! Bresnan's bag of allsorts turns up a wicket for England! It took him a while to find the right line and length but when he did, Barath was stuck on the crease, pushing away from his body as the ball left him. He'd stuck around well, the Windies opener, but once again can't go on 36/1

13.3 81.2 mph, short ball and Powell perishes in the deep! They had two men back, the plan had been texted (because no one uses telegraphs now, right?) but Powell went for it anyway, taking on the bouncer - he got underneath it, the ball looping high to deep square leg and England have turned a small fissure into a pretty large hole 36/2

14.1 Bresnan to Bravo, another one gone and it's a fantastic piece of work from the debutant Bairstow, with a direct hit from cover-point! Bravo squirted a drive in front of square but turned down the run with Edwards halfway down the pitch ... Bairstow swooped, collected and threw down the non-striker's end and Edwards can now have an extended tea break. That fissure that became a pretty big hole is now a yawning one - West Indies have lost three for none in nine balls 36/3
View dismissal DM Bravo b Swann 21 70 57 3 0 36.84
31.1 56.8 mph, bowled him! There's the breakthrough, tried to leave but it was the arm ball, he didn't cover off stump with his pads and the ball skidded on and clipped off stump. Poor piece of judgement. It just came down the hill and Swann gets another left hander out 65/4

105.1 51.2 mph, and Swann does it in his first over again! Chanderpaul sweeps, hit on the front pad, given lbw - but he asks for the review. It pitched outside off and went on with the arm, not much turn, hit right on the knee roll ... The only question is if it's hitting any of leg. And it is, clipping the stump - if the umpire had said no it wouldn't have been enough to overturn. Chanderpaul goes for 91 on the brink of tea, what a moment to dismiss him for the first time in the match! 261/6
View dismissal MN Samuels c Swann b Broad 86 230 172 12 0 50.00
85.3 81.7 mph, there's the breakthrough! A full swinging delivery edge to second slip. Samuels came forward to drive a ball just outside off stump but the away-swing saw the ball take the outside edge and fly to Swann who pouched the chance - as easy as they come for him 222/5
View dismissal D Ramdin b Anderson 43 174 104 3 0 41.34
122.4 82.3 mph, he's got a wicket now! Length ball from Anderson, snakes through the gap between bat and pad to thwack into the top of off. Might have been a sliver of an inside edge but, either way, Ramdin is castled and that really should be it for West Indies' second innings 325/9
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c †Prior b Broad 37 44 47 5 0 78.72
115.4 84.6 mph, gone now and you saw it coming. Sammy went to pull then pulled out of the stroke but it came off the bottom edge low on the bat to Prior. The shot a ball tactics failing him in the end. Funny dismissal though, another short ball and he went after it but then realised it was a little wide and tried to stop himself playing at it but couldn't 307/7
View dismissal KAJ Roach c Bell b Broad 4 9 11 1 0 36.36
117.5 81.7 mph, caught at point and another wicket for Broad. A flashing drive flies straight to point off the bottom of the bad and it's such a simple catch for Bell at backward point. Went after a length ball outside off and didn't get into a great position 313/8

1.2 84.8 mph, got him, there's the break through!

3.1 88.8 mph, short and gloved, was it? Yes, Roach has another one! A second wicket falls, Roach is amongst them, steaming in like the ghost of West Indies quicks past. It was another rib-tickler, down the leg side and it just brushed the glove before flapping the shirt, Anderson thought about the review but wisely decided against 10/2

9.2 88.8 mph, but this is gone a similar delivery and played in the same way but this flies off a big edge and well taken to Sammy's left hand side. On a length, Trott playing forward again, this one he nicked, just a touch shorter perhaps, a little more zip onto the bat, gripped a little up the slope, producing an edge 29/3

1.2 to Strauss, 84.8 mph, got him, there's the break through! Roach strikes with a fast, threatening delivery, back of a length and targeting the batsman, Strauss stayed back and fended at the ball, a thick edge flying off the shoulder of the bat to gully. That really leapt at him, terrific start from Roach 1/1
3.1 to Anderson, 88.8 mph, short and gloved, was it? Yes, Roach has another one! A second wicket falls, Roach is amongst them, steaming in like the ghost of West Indies quicks past. It was another rib-tickler, down the leg side and it just brushed the glove before flapping the shirt, Anderson thought about the review but wisely decided against 10/2
9.2 to Trott, 88.8 mph, but this is gone a similar delivery and played in the same way but this flies off a big edge and well taken to Sammy's left hand side. On a length, Trott playing forward again, this one he nicked, just a touch shorter perhaps, a little more zip onto the bat, gripped a little up the slope, producing an edge 29/3

14.4 to Pietersen, 86.8 mph, another pull and out! Gabriel's got a huge huge wicket! Another short ball that Pietersen tried to play into the leg side, a bottom edge through to the keeper. It didn't bounce quite as Pietersen was expecting, he got a thin edge and Ramdin took a simple chance to set off wild celebrations 57/4

45.3 to Cook, oh, gone! Cook tried to finish things with another hack through his favoured scoring area but it flew off the edge and was caught low at gully. Disastrous collapse ahoy! 189/5
