    89.2 tossed up outside off, Cook cuts - and nicks it to Ramdin! Would you Adam and Eve it, England's captain falls to what will be the last ball of the day, caught behind for 105 to swing things firmly to the opposition. Not sure what you can put that down to other than a lapse in concentration, it was short enough to cut but he just got a thin under-edge into the gloves. He stares stonily ahead, leaning on his bat, before dragging himself off while the crowd applauds 240/7
    1.3 touch shorter, Trott gets into a right tangle in trying to play it away on the leg side, it wasn't a pull and wasn't a flick to leg either, whatever it was it popped up a catch to square leg. Fielder runs in a few yards and dives forward to take the catch. Trott beaten for pace, really not sure what he was trying to do with this delivery. West Indies said they would target England with short bowling and it's worked here, Trott's old weakness exposed with a sharp delivery right on target about chest height 0/1
    15.3 oh, bowled! No doubt about this one, middle stump is flat on the ground! Holder roars in celebration, Ballance takes a look back to confirm his suspicion and then heads for the changing rooms... Maybe a little loose in defence, given what the previous ball did, but that was a peach from Holder, a perfect length to hit the top of middle stump as it snaked back between bat and pad 38/2
    17.2 slower ball, chipped back to the bowler - Holder has another! Bell was pushing forward, through the shot earlier than he expected because of the lack of pace, it went pretty sharply to Holder's left but he closed those great big paws around the chance, then threw it up in celebration... England are in some bother here 38/3
    31.4 back to force into the covers again and nicks it behind! Thin edge to Ramdin. Slightly back of a length ball, Root rocked back to nudge it away from a foot outside off but got a little edge as it turned away and Ramdin held on well. A wicket totally out of the blue 91/4
    70.4 cut to backward point, oh they try a single but the ball has gone almost straight to the fielder and Moeen is run-out! What a disaster for England. This chanceless stand broken so unnecessarily. It was a very sharp single, Moeen was running to the danger end and was well short, not sure if it was a terrible call or not. Moeen was a little slow to take off 189/5
    85.6 tries to steer one off the back foot again and Stokes has picked out gully! So, he'll not be reaching any landmarks before Cook, that's another wicket for Gabriel. It was not quite short or wide enough to cut and he sliced it to the fielder, similar to his first-innings dismissal in Antigua 233/6

    92.5 fired towards leg stump and Jordan flicks at it again, there's a sound on the way through to Ramdin... and Bruce Oxenford's finger goes up. Taylor and the fielders put in a strong appeal but Jordan, after taking a moment to consult with Buttler, asks for the review. It was very close to bat and pad, definitely a sound and without Hot Spot or Snicko, there's no real grounds to quibble - so up goes the finger again and off trudges Jordan 247/8

    96.2 targets the stumps, hits the stumps, Broad's brief blast is over! Middle stump is pole-axed, Broad had stopped bothering to come forward and was beaten for pace... Pretty good bowling to a tailender 257/9
    96.3 bowled him, stumps all over the place! Taylor repeats the trick, 89mph and this swung back at Anderson, who at least attempted to get his bat down next to the front pad, it actually flicked the knee roll and then sent off stump a metre back 257/10

    0.2 pitched up and edged, Brathwaite is gone second ball! Anderson strikes early, nicely taken just above the ground by Jordan to dismiss his fellow Combermere alumnus... Brathwaite was drawn forwards and the ball just straightened enough to be deadly (in a figurative sense) 0/1
    4.5 but this time Cook holds on! Thin edge and Cook came forward to take the catch, but they will check if it carried. The umpires thought it was out on the field but wanted it checked just in case. Cook was convinced and claimed the catch immediately, looks as if it has gone straight into the hands. Full length from Anderson on a fourth-stump line, Hope plays at it, gets a healthy edge and Cook does the rest 5/2
    15.3 pushed through a little quicker, Bravo can't withdraw his bat this time - edged and taken at first slip! Moeen makes an immediate impact and West Indies' hopes of shoring things up have already been holed below the waterline. Was probably short and wide enough to leave but the first two balls had Bravo in two minds 37/4
    8.6 full length angled back towards off stump, Samuels leaves this alone and oh my goodness bad decision, given out lbw! Samuels goes for a review but this looked stone dead and indeed, Hawk Eye has it smashing middle and leg three-quarters up. The inswinger does the trick for Anderson, Samuels totally deceived, superb bowling 21/3
    27.6 pushed through, spinning away and Chanderpaul goes back, nicks a sharp chance... which Jordan plucks from thin air once again! Brilliant slip fielding, he's got the reactions of a panther. Definitely a cool cat of some kind. He was moving to his left as Chanderpaul pushed away from his body, had a split second to grab the edge with his right 82/5
    49.4 full again, Blackwood slogs down the ground, wide of long-off... but Moeen runs around and takes an excellent diving catch! Blackwood was going full bore for the hundred, with only the last man for company, but that was not a particularly great shot. Anderson finishes with a six-for, for the third time in his career 189/10
    36.2 touch wider line, draws Ramdin into a drive and he edges it behind! Low catch for Buttler safely pouched. Looked like a bit of a cutter and it's just held it's line enough to take a thin outside edge. Nice full length had Ramdin eyeing up the drive 107/6
    39.6 length ball that leaves the right-hander and this is nicked behind! Thin edge to Buttler, a little movement does the job and the change of bowling has worked. Holder pressing forward at this just outside off, it left him a little and took a thin outside edge to the keeper who pouched an easy catch 124/7
    45.6 on a length, at the body - and fended straight to short leg! Permaul's rebellion is put down, Anderson has his fourth. It was a sharp catch by the sub fielder, Adam Lyth, as it came off the inside edge, think it hit him on the shoulder and then his hands latched on. The ball was a legcutter, bounced more than Permaul was expecting 162/8
    47.5 done him, rattles the stumps, bowled off the pads! Five-for for Anderson, he cranked the pace up and aimed for the timber, Taylor played around it and the bails were dislodged 178/9

    5.5 length ball in the channel and Cook spars, nicks it to slip! Gabriel has removed the England captain, he punches the air in delight. That was clocked at 91mph again, there was a little extra kick off the surface which caught Cook slightly out of position, safely pouched at second 13/2
    4.5 full on off, seams in a fraction to hit him on the pads... that's good enough for Bowden and up goes the finger! Excellent delivery from Taylor, pitched up and doing just enough to beat the bat on the inside; Trott briefly consults his captain but decides not to review, which looks like a wise decision, from the replay. He heads off, perhaps for the last time in an England shirt. Go well, Trotty 11/1
    27.2 got him! Strikes second ball. Lovely stuff. Tossed up outside off, Ballance leans forward, trying to cover for the spin, the ball goes straight on and the outside carries low to slip 62/6
    8.3 fuller and a straighter line, huge cry for lbw and given out! Bell bags a pair! But he reviews in the hope he has got some bat on this but he's missed it by a long way and Hawk Eye has the ball slamming into middle stump. Goodness what a mad day this is. Quick and straight from Taylor and West Indies are right back in this 18/3
    14.4 touch wider and Root drives again, gets a thick outside edge and is taken at first slip! Another wicket falls. Healthy outside edge and Bravo took it smartly low down to his left. Full length drawing Root out to driven this a couple of inches outside off, it left him slightly and Root nicked off 28/4

    19.3 tossed up into the rough outside off, Moeen goes to cut and drags it on! What a blow for West Indies! So close to the close. It turned and kept a little low but was always too close to cut and Moeen pays the penalty, dragging it into middle stump. Rather lazy stroke 39/5
    35.3 on the charge, a drive screws away off the outer half of the bat - and Chanderpaul snaffles it at extra cover! England lose their seventh, Permaul the man again, he maybe held this back a touch as Stokes came down the pitch, couldn't keep the drive down and the catch was taken safely 95/7

    38.3 trapped in front this time, Bowden thinks about it... and gives him out! After a brief hesitation, Jordan reviews. The ball came back at Jordan this time, hit him on the knee roll, he was up on his toes but well in line; Hawk-Eye is going to be the clincher and it has the ball shaving the bails, umpire's call - so Jordan has to go, England eight down 98/8
    38.4 bowled him first ball, off stump out of the ground! Superb yorker from Holder, right on the money from around the wicket, Broad was hanging back nervously on leg stump and got nowhere near keeping it out... Holder's on a hat-trick in front of his home crowd! 98/9
    42.1 full and tailing in, slams into the front pad... but Bowden turns it down, so West Indies ask for the review and it is quickly justified as Hawk-Eye shows the ball heading for leg stump, halfway up. So, the decision is overturned, England are all out and Anderson sprints off to prepare for his job with the ball 123/10

    13.3 edged and there's Jordan, another instinctive one-handed take at slip! England have a second...! Moeen removes Brathwaite with one drifting across him, didn't really turn and clipped the edge, another sharp chance but Ole Velcro Hands snapped it up, quite close to his body but only a fraction of time to react as he fell to his right. Jordan, back on his old manor, is at the centre of things for the tourists 35/2
    12.5 full, swinging in and given lbw! The breakthrough for England, although Hope has reviewed. It's heading leg side. Might be clipping leg stump. Was considerable late movement. Well, it's smashing leg stump full on! 35/1
    61.6 full toss from Stokes, opens the shoulders... and slaps it to mid-off! Broad catches it and throws the ball back, Bravo doesn't seem to believe it, there's actually a bit of discussion on the pitch before he realises he has to go. He'll get an ovation from the crowd, at least, it's been a wonderful innings 188/5

    30.1 first ball! A bit of a loosener, really, outside off which Chanderpaul just prods and it and gets a bottom edge into the stumps 80/4
