    2.2 pitched up, Strauss plays round a straight ball and that looks out even before the umpire starts lifting his finger 13/1
    40.3 oh, cut down behind point - did it carry to Bravo? Yes, it did, just. Sammy has his first Test wicket 132/4
    31.6 great ball, nipping back in at Vaughan from just outside off. Full-length delivery, Vaughan plays down the wrong line and the ball takes off-and-middle stumps 117/2
    37.6 attempted bouncer - and gets the reward! Pietersen's eyes lit up, and couldn't control the hook which slips down deep square leg's throat, Bravo holding on without alarm 132/3
    52.3 an inswinger, Collingwood shuffles across his stumps but is rapped straight in front. A raucous appeal...and he's given him. The ball did look to be shaping down the leg side, but replays indicate leg stump would've been flattened 166/5
    100.4 a superb delivery, another leg-cutter from Collymore and again he finds nasty bounce. Bell was drawn into a defensive poke on the back foot, but it jagged away markedly off the seam to take the edge and Ramdin snaffles an easy chance 338/9
    77.4 dug in for a third time in four, Prior goes to pull but doesn't get on top of it and the ball arcs right into the hands of Morton 10 or 15 yards inside the midwicket boundary. That was shorter and wider than the other ones and of them all, that was the one to leave ... 264/6
    83.5 super one-two ... the bouncer softened him up and Edwards follows with a good-length delivery which swings as well, Plunkett, heading ever-so-slightly towards square leg, is beaten all ends up and the ball hits the middle stump two-thirds up and sends it flying 285/7
    93.2 yet another bouncer and this time it works, Harmison tries to get out of the way but it hits his gloves and gives Ramdin a simple catch. Bowden's decision is made easier as Harmison starts walking before hesitating and looking at the umpire 324/8
    105.1 gone. Full and swinging into Sidebottom who was simply beaten for pace - his leg-stump flattened 370/10

    9.3 full, and Gayle slices right to gully, for a good, low catch 49/2
    1.4 got him. A sharp incutter rapping him on the pads, and that's absolutely plumb 17/1
    31.1 a superb catch from Ian Bell at silly point. An inside edge from Smith onto his heel, the ball ballooning just in front of Bell who dived forward with both hands and took it grass height 157/4
    22.5 Harmison strikes, the ball jags back at Morton's throat and he can only fend the ball to Strauss's midriff at first slip 116/3
    51.5 gone. Poked up to cover and snapped up by Pietersen, easily 225/9
    45.3 angling across Bravo who remained on the back foot. He was drawn into a defensive prod, edging the ball to Prior's right who dived and took an excellent catch 216/5
    49.3 a bouncer tempting the hook. The pace, rather than the bounce, did him. The trap worked. Pietersen, at square leg, was smiling even before he'd caught that 224/6
    50.2 popped up, hit the glove, and well snapped up at first slip, taking it as he fell, he couldn't have seen the deflection as it came from across the keeper 225/7
    50.4 got him! Great bowling from Panesar again, tempting the steer to second slip. Well held 225/8
    52.4 and it's all over - the batsman going for the drive and edging to first slip, where it's held without trouble 229/10

    0.3 fantastic full inswinger from Edwards, low and straight, and trapped Strauss back in the crease. Plumb as you like and Strauss's bad run continues 1/1

    72.2 well, whatever next, Gayle has struck...coming in from round the wicket, certainly no spin, and Aleem Dar rules that it would have hit. It was in-line with off stump, although there is some doubt about the height. Ends a solid century from Cook, and his career-best remains at 127 265/4
    22.3 what a catch! Nicely timed by Vaughan, a straight drive hit hard, but just in the air, allowing Sammy to take a great reaction catch on follow through - grasping with his right hand 99/2
    59.1 hit wicket, what an unusual dismissal. A sharp bouncer took Pietersen totally by surprise - but not a quick ball - knocking his helmet off which then fell on to his stumps. Pietersen didn't connect with the sticks themselves, but as the bails were dislodged by the lid, he's gone 221/3
    85.1 on off, clipped to Ganga at midwicket who holds the catch easily 313/9
    75.1 a cracking delivery from Sammy, outside off stump, held its line and Bell had a nibble, getting an edge through to Ramdin. 272/5
    75.2 gone first ball, very similar delivery to the Bell dismissal, a little wider outside off stump and Prior pushes forward and gets a very thin edge through to Ramdin. Prior's first failure in Test cricket 272/6
    75.5 and another...Plunkett plays forward and gets an inside edge onto his pad which loops into the gully area where Dwayne Bravo dives forward and to his right, pulling off an outstanding catch. Three in an over for Sammy 272/7
    83.2 what a catch! Harmison tries to cover-drive a ball that's just too full; the result is an edge to gully where Morton takes a very tidy catch, low 300/8

    13.4 gone! Superbly bowled from Harmison, pitching it up on off stump to Gayle who came tentatively forward. It took a thick outside edge, flying to Collingwood at second slip who took a fine catch low to his left 35/2
    1.3 and he strikes with a straight one! Very similar to the first innings, Ganga trapped in front, unable to deal with the one which came back in 4/1
    32.6 intelligent bowling from Panesar gets the breakthrough, pitching outside off, brushing the glove and popping to Cook at silly mid-on, who takes a relatively simple catch 88/3
    58.1 a misjudgement there from Morton, shouldering arms as the ball pitches on off and crashes into his front pad, in line with off 161/4

    78.6 gone this time! On leg stump, Bravo lunged forward and gloved it straight into the waiting hands of Alastair Cook at short-leg 249/5
    100.3 the breakthrough ... Ramdin undone by extra bounce and a degree of turn, he goes back but can only edge the ball from high on the bat to Paul Collingwood at first slip who takes a sharp catch to his left at face height 311/6
    114.4 what a catch - a straight drive, that was travelling, and Panesar took a great reaction return at his right shoulder 348/7
    129.2 super delivery, short and right at Taylor's throat, he can only fend the ball off the glove right into the hands of Cook at short leg. That's Cook's third catch of the innings and England celebrate like it's 2005 385/8
    129.5 another ripper from Harmison at Edwards' chest, he is turned square as he tries to get into line and the ball loops off the edge to gully where Bell runs to his left to hold the catch 385/9
    132.5 and that's two balls too many ... full, clipped off bat and pad and Bell holds on to a brilliant one-handed reaction catch to his right at short leg. Collymore stands his ground, the umpires confer and refer ... the PA announces and England celebrate prematurely. England start high-fiving and hugging before the announcement as they get the thumbs-up from the dressing-room. It takes two minutes and endless replays before the third umpire gives his decision ... it's out 394/10
