    23.4 down for the sweep again, but that time it's fuller and loopier, and it's also absolutely plumb! Superb bowling, just enough variation to encourage a mistake, and that would have hit the middle of off stump 81/2
    18.4 and he's got him! Rapped on the pads, Smith went back on his toes and tried to defend - was it too high? It did look a bit high at first glance, but the decision's been made and he's out 59/1

    81.4 bowled him! That cuts back at the last moment and kept a little low - one of the few deliveries that have done that today - and Sarwan was too late on it, beaten by the movement and lack of bounce 244/4
    28.5 that's definitely beaten him! Broad strikes in his first over, as Hinds drove on the up, straight into the hands of short midwicket. Another fatal loss of concentration ends a good innings, and West Indies are dangling in the breeze for the moment 96/3
    87.2 GOT HIM! A superb delivery from Broad, angling into Chanderpaul before cutting away just a touch, and he nibbles at it outside off to hand Prior an easy catch 261/5

    96.3 that's the breakthrough, and that looked especially tight! There was no discernible spin, and struck the middle of the pad well before the bat was involved. Umpire Harper thinks long and hard, but gets his decision right in the end 287/6
    110.6 bowled him! Ramdin tried to cut this with a cross-batted stroke but again his feet were completely planted, and he inside edges this depressively onto his stumps 322/8
    106.1 got him! And Ian Bell comes to the party as the substitute fielder! On the pads, flicked airily away, and Bell dives excitedly at short midwicket to cling on. That is a vital wicket 313/7

    117.6 got him! He's got him this time! Poor old Benn pads up for seemingly the millionth time, and this time he's rapped absolutely bang in front. It pitched in line, and there was enough turn that it was going to hit leg-stump 353/9
