Commentary

END OF OVER:
81 | 5 Runs | ENG: 279/2

  • KP Pietersen72 (116b)
  • AN Cook139 (256b)
  • RR Sarwan3-0-16-0
  • SJ Benn21-1-64-1

Monty's running onto the field, Strauss puts his thumbs up questionably to Gayle on the field who returns in kind. And everyone shakes hands, as the Test has drifted into a draw. It was a useful time for Cook to rediscover some form, gliding 139 while Pietersen also showed greater fluency in his 72. It's been a mostly dull Test but, importantly, West Indies now cannot lose the series (and England, obviously, cannot win it...despite entering the series as apparent favourites). We hope you've enjoyed our commentary in this game, and do keep your eyes on the bulletin as well as the series homepage for all the post-match pieces. From me, Will Luke, along with Andrew Miller, we'll see you Friday for the fifth and final Test.

Sarwan to Pietersen, no run, a bouncer! Pietersen defends. Bit of fun

This could be the last ball of the Test

Sarwan to Pietersen, FOUR runs, cover-driven for four

Sarwan to Pietersen, no run, spins away sharply

Strauss is out on the balcony so it looks like it's all over shortly.

Sarwan to Pietersen, no run, nice legspinner, cautiously defended

Sarwan to Cook, 1 run, flicked to leg

Pietersen is gesturing to the dressing room to end this farce

Sarwan to Cook, no run, cracked out to the off side

Gayle's having a chat with the two batsmen, perhaps discussing a declaration (which can take place in five minutes). So we might have 15 more minutes, or we might have five
