    10.4 edged and gone! Anderson gets it right again, and this time there's no mistake as Brathwaite hangs his bat in the channel and Bairstow gathers the thin nick. 498 and counting! 18/1
    33.4 drilled straight back to Stokes, who bends at the knee and scoops a fine catch in both hands! Powell's resistance ends at precisely the wrong moment for West Indies, who now have two players yet to face a ball ... 78/4
    14.3 499 for Anderson! On that full length outside off, late away movement, Hope in two minds whether to play to leave and the ball takes takes the toe. Bairstow doesn't risk leaving this one for Cook, dives across and takes it very nicely 22/2
    32.6 Cook has only gone and caught one! And he is delighted, as Roland-Jones bangs one into the splice of Hope's still-vertical bat, for a thin deflection to bobble through to first slip! Was it straight in ... hmm... more or less, but those weren't the liquid mitts of old! A timely strike, as Hope was beginning to purr... 78/3

    43.2 what a ball! That's unplayable. A leg-break at 85mph. Angles in at off stump, pitches, straightens off the seam to beat the edge and clip off stump. Chase ends up square on facing down the pitch 100/6
    36.2 wild and woolly, and over goes the timbers! Rash from Blackwood, but was ever thus. Full, straight, tempting the slog across the line, and missing by a mile! 87/5
    43.4 has this carried? Yes, Dowrich is off! Good length outside off, more outswing, he has a nibble and Cook grabs it very low. Now, though, Dowrich has stopped. Going to check it's carried. It goes straight in, neat take from Cook after his recent problems 101/7
    55.4 that is stunning! Massive inswing from Stokes, a Jimmy-esque change-up as the ball bursts through Holder's startled and flimsy defences, curling like a sun-bathing python into the base of middle stump! 119/8

    57.2 edged and gone, Anderson of all people dives like a rampant salmon from fourth slip in front of third, and Stokes has his fifth! 123/9
    57.3 humungous inswing, the stumps are splattered, and Stokes has stolen the King of Swing's thunder! 123/10

    11.6 that's a lovely delivery, edged behind! Angled in at off stump, nips off the seam, grazes the outside edge. They've worked hard for that 15/2
    2.4 edged and gone! Stoneman's resolve outside off crumbles as Roach tempts him on a tight line with extra lift, and Dowrich sidles across to swallow the nick! That's a very untimely failure for a batsman who had just threatened to prove himself at Headingley 1/1
    12.6 and another! On off stump, beats the outside edge and he's not reviewing. Short of a good length, it's umpire's call on impact and hitting so good call not to ask. Enough seam movement to square him up a touch, excellent bowling 19/3
    14.1 what a moment! Root goes, Powell clings on at firsts slip. Short of a length outside off, Root forcing off the back foot, Dowrich starts to move but, unlike at Headingley, doesn't fully dive and Powell holds his nerve. Not one of Root's best shots given the circumstances 24/4
    22.4 edged and gone! Roach the man from round the wicket. Just outside off, back of a length, Malan has to play, nips off the seam and carries low to Dowrich who takes the one that matters 63/5

    38.5 wow! He's bowled an absolute carbon copy replica! Stokes once again stretches forward to defend, but the angle, the length, and the late inswing makes for an unplayable combination! 128/7
    35.6 big appeal, and given out lbw! Bairstow calls for a review, as well he might, it nipped back sharply and took off as the batsman retreated into his crease. But nope, that is crashing into leg stump. Roach has earned that! 119/6
    41.3 grabbed in the gully! Roach has five. Keeps it full outside off, Moeen can't resist going after it, drives on the up, and it's a sharp catch by Kyle Hope 134/8
    48.3 flashes, and caught at gully! Full, wide outside off, Roland-Jones chases it with a drive and the thick edge is snaffled at waist height 163/9
    52.5 and that's it...a bottom edge from Broad as he aims another swing to the leg side, against a short delivery, and it just about reaches Dowrich 194/10

    2.6 bowled him for his 500th wicket! What a way to get there! A big inswinger, the first he's served up in the innings, demolishing the base of middle stump as Brathwaite plays all round it! A standing ovation for England's greatest wicket-taker, and a Kodak moment to cherish as well! 6/1

    22.4 what a ball! Anderson has pulled another out of the bag. What a gem to take 501. No half-century for Powell, and nothing he could do about it. Angles in from round the wicket, pitches around middle, zips off the seam to beat the bat and kiss the off bail. Doesn't get better from a fast bowler 69/3
    9.5 Broad knows! That's plumb lbw, he doesn't even turn to look as he begins his celebrations... but Hope has reviewed.. was there an inside-edge? Nope, not a sausage! West Indies lose their second! That one tailed in from an already tight line, beat the edge and would have smashed middle and leg. 21/2
    59.1 another beauty, what a ball to get your fifth wicket! Doesn't come much better for a swing bowler. Pitches on off stump, just short of a good length, shapes away and kisses the outside edge through to Bairstow 155/7
    31.4 he's got an early one! That's what England wanted. In the channel outside off, Chase has a nibble and Bairstow takes the chance low down to his right 94/4
    39.2 gone this time! And it's a fourth for Anderson. The pressure pays off against Blackwood. Short of a length, touch wider outside off, Blackwood plays away from his body and it's another grab for Bairstow 100/5
    48.3 harmless lob to short mid-on. Been happy to go with that pull shot, but this time he's paid the price. Similar ball to the last one. Climbs off a length. This shot is attempted on the angle. But it straightens to find the sticker of the bat and it's a slice in the end 123/6
    64.1 he's gone now. Tries to take a short ball over the leg side, gets underneath it, the ball comes off the splice - perhaps a touch quicker than he expected - and lobs a simple catch to Anderson coming round from mid-on. The great pair combine 177/9
    59.3 that's gone as well! He has six. Full at off stump from round the wicket, Bishoo not really in line, but it's another fantastic delivery which scoots past the outside edge to hit off stump 155/8
    65.1 he's done it! That's his career best. A full delivery, moves back to beat Roach's inside edge and crashes into middle stump. A display of masterful deliveries ends with another 177/10
