    20.2 brilliance from Rashid! Opted for the lesser-spotted legbreak, a bit faster and flatter, Gayle launched into a flat-footed slap across the line, in his apparent arc, but it turned sharply to clip the outside of the off stump! 98/2
    12.1 short ball, pulled without conviction - and taken at mid-on! Plunkett gets the breakthrough, his back-of-a-length stylings seeing off Campbell. Not quite so free-flowing today 61/1
    25.1 short, pulled, snaffled at deep square leg! Hope dwindles, as Stokes digs one in, Bairstow barely had to move, and another good start fails to turn into a big finish. Hitting into the breeze was always going to be fraught with danger 121/3
    37.2 direct hit from Rashid! Hetmyer steered a slower ball straight to short third man and set off immediately, Bravo may have been on his heels... but he could not outrun Rashid's fizzer, unable to make his ground despite a desperate stretch! 197/4

    38.4 big lbw appeal, again Oxenford says no - but then another direct hit scuppers Holder! He set off instinctively but Jason Roy was already scooting up from point, picked up and hurled at one-and-a-bit stumps, and that's a bingo! 207/5
    44.3 bowled 'im! Wood hits the top of middle stump, finally gets his man! Quick and straight and through a wild swing across the line 237/6

    2.1 oops! A massive drag-on from Roy, and England are in some serious strife! Reaching for the wide one, angled across the body, and Roy's feet are stuck in treacle as he over-reaches and pays the price! 10/2
    0.2 pinned on the crease and gone! That's perfection from Cottrell, full, fast, pitching leg, hitting middle, Bairstow is walking before the finger is up. Cottrell stamps the pitch and swings into his trademark salute! That's put the Cot among the Pigeons! 1/1
    12.6 short, and wide, and Root scuffs his uppercut! Root over-cooks this one, as Thomas finds some extra bounce and skims a thin top-edge through to the keeper! He got a touch too cute with the stroke. The kitchen sink would have been the safer option, but that's a vital and timely breakthrough! 60/3
    30.2 here's that celebration again! Launched to the leg side, off the toe of the bat, and taken this time by Hetmyer sprinting in! Morgan realised he had duffed it as soon as the ball went up, that's the long part of the ground and it never had the legs 159/4
    39.6 edged and gone! Stokes can't believe he's been given here, there seemed to be a fat nick, but he has reviewed. He's hit the ground with the bat, but has he hit the ball too? It seemed so to the naked eye. Yep, he's out! 228/5
    41.3 offcutter, chipped in the air, and Buttler is gone now! That is massive. The right variation at the right time, he was already through his stroke as he threw the bat at a wide one, and now the pressure is really on! 233/6

    46.5 round his legs, and Cottrell has five! This is magnificent bowling, but an unlucky way to go ... clips the inside of the thigh pad, a la Keaton Jennings in the Tests, and deflects back into the leg stump! But there's no stopping Cottrell now. He ain't no Private Pile! 261/9
    41.4 gone! But what for?! That's not lbw ... is it? No way... but England have no reviews left! If so, that looks to the naked eye like one of the worst decisions in history! High, leg-sided. I am very willing to be proven very wrong! UPDATE: That was an absolute honker! Missing leg stump on height and line! 233/7
    46.3 got him! Cottrell is winning this match single-handedly! Back of a length again, Rashid looks to nurdle, opens the face, but can't get the angle to beat the keeper. Out comes the salute for his career-best figures... and England are looking down the barrel now 260/8
    47.4 slapped to long off, and Holder swallows the winning catch! No repeat of his Trent Bridge 2016 heroics from Plunkett, but he was looking for a similar go-to stroke, an up-and-over wallop on a full length. But the skipper is back on the rope, and seals a thrilling comeback win! 263/10
