    7.2 edged to third slip! Gabriel gets the huge breakthrough. Excellent line at off stump, just back of a good length, makes Cook play and it's a sharp, low grab by Kyle Hope 19/1
    14.6 that's another loose stroke and England are three-down! Full length from Roach, just a hint of movement back into the left-hander, there's a yawning gap between bat and pad, and he's only gone and grazed an inside-edge to the keeper! 37/3
    10.4 full, straight and lbw! Very similar to first innings at Edgbaston. Roach rewarded for getting the ball full, Westley went for a drive and it beat the inside edge to hit the back pad 26/2
    43.5 edged and gone! SIlence abounds in Headingley as Root lines up the sweep, but nibbles a toe-end into the hands of Blackwood at slip! Yet again, he's reached fifty but failed to kick on. And England remain unable to assert any dominance on the day 140/5

    28.4 through him! He switches to round the wicket and it brings immediate reward. It's full outside off, Malan goes for the drive and gets an inside edge into off stump 71/4
    69.1 gone! Stokes attempts to heave through the leg side, feathers an outside edge to the keeper, and off he walks! 258/8
    47.2 another hard-handed drive, another edge! Bairstow isn't convinced, it was claimed very low at second slip, but the soft signal is out as they are sent upstairs for the verdict... it's very tight, one of those ones that might have been overruled in the old days, but there is "nothing conclusive" to overturn it today, as Holder's fingers envelop the ball, so off he goes! 152/6
    60.2 he's picked out point! Roach's return has done the trick, Moeen went for another drive, reaching for it a little, and can't keep the ball down. Neat catch 220/7
    70.5 edged and gone! England's tail goes meekly, as Roach picks up one of the hardest-earned four-wicket hauls of all time. Good carry outside off, a loose flash from a batsman keen to keep the scoreboard moving 258/10
    69.5 tremendous bowling! Hugely well deserved wicket, as Broad is completely cleaned up by a pinpoint yorker. Crashes into the middle stump, and England are nine-down! 258/9

    89.2 bowled him! The breakthrough finally arrives, and it's one that maybe keeps a touch low as Brathwaite prods forward but is bowled through the gate. The end of a truly epic Test innings. And one that could yet set up a series-squaring win. It's been that good 281/4
    6.3 there we go! Anderson took his time to find his range, but Powell's tentative footwork made that unplayable in the end. Full length, swinging late, and climbing off the seam to boot. Kisses the edge and Cook tumbles backwards at first slip to claim his 150th Test catch! 11/1
    16.4 slashes and edges to the keeper! Not Anderson's finest delivery, dragged it short outside off stump, Bishoo saw the chance of a cut shot but just got a top edge to Bairstow. Well, so much for pitching it up! 31/2
    20.5 edged, and superb catch at second slip! Gets it on the full length at off stump, it's actually the inswinger, Hope pushing off the front foot, thick edge and Root dives across to his left to hold a sharp one 35/3
    102.1 what a start, gone first ball! In the channel outside off, just a little nibble, grazes Hope's outside edge and Anderson's gets it right straightaway 329/6
    94.4 edged and gone! Stokes makes the breakthrough, good lift outside off, drawing a hard-handed push, and Cook tumbles backwards at slip to cling on! 296/5
    118.3 a stabbed block outside off, misses everything but the flap of the pad as Stokes rushes to retrieve behind the stumps, and hello ... the shy has come in very smartly, and that's a run-out Blackwood is gone for 49, and West Indies' innings is subsiding rapidly now 406/9
    102.2 and another, edged to second slip! Anderson has his fifth, it's two-on-two-balls. Back of a length outside off, Dowrich pushes at it and sends a thick edge to Joe Root 329/7
    117.4 gone down the ground, an ambitious wipe for glory ... but Moeen tracks back well at mid-off and makes amends for his earlier aberration with a finely judged take, over his shoulder. The end of an excellent, aggressive cameo from the skipper, one that has kept West Indies in firm control of this Test 404/8

    126.6 huge appeal, and up goes the finger again! Another review, perhaps more optimistic this time ... might as well use it... no bat involved, and clipping leg. That is the end of that 427/10

    21.5 gone this time! Dangling it out there, four balls in a row on that perfect line and length, and Cook, most unusually, can't prevent himself from taking the bait, a tentative poke outside the line for Dowrich to gather a vital edge! 58/1

    38.3 what a ball! Takes off stump. But they are checking for the no-ball! It's very close. Is there anything behind that line? Jeepers, he gets away with it. The delivery, itself, deserved the wicket. Pitched on off stump, straighten to beat the edge and clatter off stump 94/3
    29.6 wild drive and edged behind! Westley's head looked scrambled, that's a shocking shot. Full and wide, he chases it miles way from his body and it's a thin edge to the keeper 81/2
    68.3 he's gone, at the second grab! This is a huge moment. A short ball outside off, Root is cramped for room as he tries to play it down through gully. Can't get over the top of the ball, picks out Shai Hope at gully who needs to grabs to hang on 212/4

    102.6 bowled him! Well done Roston Chase ... his line today has been appreciably tighter to the stumps, and this one worms its way through Malan's defences. Playing the initial line of the ball, but this one turns and skids through, and it's the end of a fighting innings. But golly, back come West Indies! 312/6
    100.1 wow! That is a superbly judged catch from Brathwaite on the long-off rope! Stokes gave it some serious welly, but got more height than distance. Even so, it looked as though it was six all the way, but Brathwaite balanced on the edge of the rope, pocketed the chance as it plopped from the heavens, and managed to avoid over-stepping. Top effort! 303/5
    106.4 reverse sweep, and Bairstow has dragged on! A bottom-edge, rolls past the back pad, into the timbers, and Jonny is so livid, he nearly takes out the keeper with a wild swing of his axe. He couldn't have looked more like Jack Nicholson if he tried ... 327/7
    129.6 picks out long-on, so they'll be no century for Moeen. Tried to fetch this from outside off with a slog sweep, comes off the bottom of the bat and goes much straighter. Simple catch (which is safely taken) 444/8
