END OF OVER:
128 | (maiden) | WI: 370/9

  • DBL Powell22 (55b)
  • FH Edwards5 (26b)
  • GP Swann39-12-92-3
  • KP Pietersen3-0-15-0

England threw absolutely everything at West Indies, yet as the ground filled with Antiguans, and the light began to fade, Powell - who has attracted loads of criticism for his batting in the past year - and Edwards blocked, smothered and defended their way to safety. England will doubtless be gutted yet have controlled most of this Test - some achievement given the shambles of Kingston and 51-all-out. And they could yet fight back to win the series: we still have two to play, remember. Well, it's been an exhausting but enthralling week and we hope you've enjoyed our coverage. Do keep an eye on the bulletin, which will shortly be complete, and do join us for the fourth Test in Barbados next Thursday. From Will Luke and Andrew Miller, it's goodnight.

And the umpires come to talk once more. Here comes the light meter! Everyone's favourite meter. They're offering the light - and they take it! That's it, it's all over, red rover, for England. What an incredible last session that was. A brilliant, tense and enthralling climax and how fitting for it to have been played at the old Rec, a ground brought back to life.

Swann to Powell, no run, oh middle-and-leg, Powell lunges forward once more!

Swann to Powell, no run, on the off stump, Powell's forward and blocks

He's off the field. Bell replaces. This is war

Swann to Powell, no run, a full toss which is absolutely hammered into Pietersen. He's down. Is he out? He looks in huge pain...looks like he's bust a finger I'm afraid.

Swann to Powell, no run, quicker ball - the arm ball? - but it's kept out

West Indian fans are cheering every ball

127.2
0
Swann to Powell, no run, comes forward once more to smother this
127.1
0
Swann to Powell, no run, keeps really low! Powell crouches into the most ugly of defensives, but it works! Who cares, it works

Another over. England are looking pretty dejected now...
