    5.1 got him! Anderson has his second as Gayle drags into his stumps, massive strike for England. That was a loose shot from the captain as he tried to guide it to third man with an angled bat and was defeated by a hint of low bounce 24/2
    3.2 that's out, superb delivery from Anderson, hint of movement away to Simmons who gets an healthy edge through to Prior...nice bowling, pace and bounce on that one and it was too much for Simmons who was trying to guide it to third man 15/1
    34.4 and Anderson strikes, Sarwan started to shuffle around the crease but the bowler held his nerve and an attempted drive loops to mid-off on the edge of the circle...very important breakthrough for England 157/3

    39.4 got him! Powerfully lofted but straight to Pietersen at long-on who takes a fine, tumbling catch to his right 206/4
    45.2 bouncer and pulled over midwicket - but what a catch by Paul Collingwood! Bravo absolutely nailed this pull and Collingwood back-peddled, taking the ball with both hands over his head while falling backwards. And he does well to stay inside the rope. Outstanding skill 237/5
    46.1 well that's a bit of a poor shot really. He stood with both feet pointing down the pitch and tried to scoop it very fine over the keeper's head, but could only spoon it straight to a short fine-leg 238/6
    48.3 got him. Good, straight off-cutter which raps him on the back pad as he attempted to swing it over midwicket 256/7
    48.4 bowled him! Collingwood's on a hat-trick here, bowling Miller with a lovely little off-cutter which kept a touch low. Poor stroke though from Miller trying to cut it 256/8

    46.4 bowled him! Bowled him! Pollard pumps his fist as he knocks out Strauss's leg stump 229/9
    4.3 there's the breakthrough, Baker gets Bopara to drag into his stumps, a bit of a loose drive but he didn't get to the pitch...a shame as he'd started brightly, but that's a good boost for West Indies 18/1
    7.2 gone this time! Edwards wins the battle in convincing style. Pietersen went to play off the back foot and gets another inside edge, this time it crashes into leg stump and that's a huge wicket for West Indies 36/2
    19.3 got him this time! A quicker ball sliding into Shah - beautiful bowling from Bravo and up goes the finger 86/3
    19.6 bowled him! Another tentative prod by an England batsman but a fine ball which swung back between bat and pad, clipping the off stump 88/4
    22.5 got him! The grinning Duncan raises his finger as Prior shuffled back to one which kept low, and he got a very thin edge through to Ramdin who also ensured he kept low, taking a fine catch. A really super catch 97/5

    37.6 and that's the end of Broad, a limp chip shot back to the bowler who snaffles it easily. Broad tried to turn it to leg and just got a leading edge back down the pitch. Miller deserved that and the end is near for England 168/7
    40.3 Batty - oh Batty. Batty's run himself out here. Nudges this to mid-on where Miller doth lurk, and he wings down a very sharp throw which leaves our man short of his ground 185/8

    48.2 bowled him! Brilliant slower ball completely foxes Anderson's attempt to smack it over midwicket, and that's game, set and match to West Indies 243/10
