    42.3 Anticlimax. Gayle has been run out before he could indulge himself. Bravo set off after pushing a length-delivery towards extra cover, Gayle hesitated initially before responding but couldn't beat the throw from Flintoff 209/2
    7.6 gone! Lands around off stump and moves in, draws Chanderpaul into a shuffle and he falls over as he goes for his shot, misses everything and gets rapped on the pads in front of middle stump, all appeal and Harper raises his finger after a thought, wicket maiden for Lewis 35/1

    47.6 Sarwan's nice little cameo ends. Drilled straight to Collingwood at long-on. 259/3
    49.3 Lovely slower delivery gets rid of Lara. Again he backed away and tried to drill a fullish ball down the ground but is beaten by the change of pace 268/4

    11.3 bowled! Tossed up, changed his pace and the ball goes on with the arm, Strauss makes room but plays all over it, ball skids in and clips off stump, and cool Gayle has struck early 82/1

    31.4 Death knell for Bell. Pietersen pushed a fullish-delivery towards Lara at midwicket and Bell set off immediately. But Lara swooped in for the kill and fired in a throw at the striker's end. Caught just short of the crease. England stutter badly after a terrific start 162/4
    20.4 Gayle strikes again! Tosses one up, Flintoff's eyes light up, down and across comes the bat, a big swing of the arms but he can only find Taylor down at long-on, and the perennial partnership-breaker spins out another 126/2
    20.6 got 'em first ball! Gayle! Sends down a flatter one but it still deceived Collingwood in the length, it was the arm ball, and he poked at it and got a regulation edge to Bravo at slip, thats two quick wickets in a jiffy, Gayle's the man of the moment but you have to question Flintoff's needless slog 127/3

    37.1 Yardy falls. Not a tourist sight. What was he thinking? He came ambitiously down the track but didn't know what to do after getting there. Just scooped it high towards long-off for Bravo to run in and take the 'catch'. Doubt there whether Bravo took it cleanly or not, Yardy has walked off the field. England slip further into crisis. Replays reveal that it was clearly a bumped catch! Ball slipped through the fingers of Bravo, hit the ground before he finished the 'catch'. Hmmm.... post-match press conference should be interesting 180/5
    41.6 Not a clever shot in the circumstances. With Pietersen still standing at the other end, Dalrymple goes for a inside-out drive over cover. But no contact and the furniture is disturbed. Crucial strike . 214/6
    44.4 Bravo finally gets Read with his slower one. He failed to pick it up on two previous occasions but this time it is fatal. Straight to Gayle at short midwicket. Read tried to roll his wrists at the last minute to keep it down but ... 232/7
