    2.3 inswing does the trick! So full from Cottrell, bending in all the time, a big wafting drive, an inside-edge into the sticks, and Cottrell brings out his salute for the first time today! Finally, West Indies find the fuller length to challenge the stumps on this deck, and it pays instant dividends 16/1
    10.2 edged and gone! The extra bounce does the trick again, but it's the tighter line that makes the difference. Hales starting to lay bat on everything now, but this one was too tight to the body for the cut, and came out instead as just a thin graze to Hope! 57/3
    3.1 uppercut, and straight to third man! That's a sucker punch for Root, there's so much bounce on this deck, so he couldn't afford any half-measures. Cottrell, right back on the rope, didn't need to move to inhale a floppy chop at a wide one! 18/2
    13.3 short, suckered into the pull, and gobbled on the rope at midwicket! It's not to be for Morgan today, Thomas's raw pace unpicks his resistance, luring him into a reflexive swat, but the ball was too quickly onto him. England are in some serious bother now! 63/4
    18.5 banged in, Stokes pulls - and gloves to the keeper! He looks disgusted with himself, but that just got bigger than expected. Brathwaite suckers Stokes again! You normally expect Stokes to be strong on that shot, though the line from round the wicket cramped him for room 88/5
    26.5 Thomas strikes again, top-edged to fine leg! There will be no Buttler intervention, as the collapse gathers pace... Short and feisty, 142kph/88mph and he was looking to flick, really, but hurried into it, sent a steepler into the deep and Cottrell takes it safely on the run! 113/8
    24.5 short of a length, and Moeen edges a flaccid drive to the keeper! Done by pace and bounce, as have several batsmen on this pitch... Not much of a surprise, given Moeen's relative strengths and weaknesses, but that was nevertheless an accident waiting to happen against a quicker bowler like Thomas 111/6
    26.3 short ball, Woakes pulls... and sends it tamely to midwicket! England sink further, again pace doing the trick! It was on him quickly, the bat turning in the hands, and it barely got off the square. A duck for Woakes on his birthday! 111/7
    28.1 Bull's eye! Thomas gets his five-for! Full and fast, up at 90mph and Curran didn't have a prayer as he stepped away and swung like a rusty gate... A proper demolition job to sum up the innings! 113/10
    27.6 snorter, snaffled behind the stumps this time! Too hot for Rashid, who was on the back foot and fending away from his body, just a tickle as the ball sizzled through - and up goes the finger, Holder has his man! 113/9

    7.6 full, straight, timber! Out comes the off stump, and Gayle's cavorting series is over! He salutes all corners as he marches from the fray. Twenty-one to win ... I can't see England coming back from this... 93/2
    3.2 full and straight, and England have their opening! That just nipped back a touch, but Campbell was playing all round it. It's a different sport at this end of the pitch. Now then, nine more of those and England are in business! 40/1
    8.5 or not! Hope slogs across the line as Woakes takes pace off the ball on a full length, and a grotty innings comes to an end. He really wasn't feeling it today, but it is scarcely going to matter! 95/3
