Match drawn

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

39.1

Hinds to Cook, no run, sharpish turn, and turned around the corner

39.2

Hinds to Cook, no run, on middle-and-off, defended

39.3

Hinds to Cook, 1 run, nudged to square leg and there's Cook's half-century. There were calls by many that he should be dropped for this Test, and he's responded very impressively indeed. Albeit on a pancake-flat pitch, but still - good innings

39.4

Hinds to Strauss, 1 run, that's a fine save by Smith at cover-point, diving to his leftright. That was four, all over

39.5

Hinds to Cook, 1 run, flicked to leg for another single

39.6

Hinds to Strauss, no run, clipped to leg

England 119/0   RO Hinds 1-0-3-0

41.1

Hinds to Strauss, no run, quicker, flatter, wider and left alone

41.2

Hinds to Strauss, 1 run, only slightly shorter, but he held this back a little too and Strauss paddled it through midwicket

41.3

Hinds to Cook, 1 run, lunges forward and clips it smartly to mid-on. Very well run. Just tip-and-run cricket here

41.4

Hinds to Strauss, no run, this scoots low outside off

41.5

Hinds to Strauss, 1 run, square-driven outside off

41.6

Hinds to Cook, no run, blocked once more

England 122/0   RO Hinds 2-0-6-0

43.1

Hinds to Strauss, no run, wide of the off stump and padded away

45.3

Hinds to Shah, no run, left alone outside off

45.4

Hinds to Shah, no run, lunges forward and prods to mid-off

45.5

Hinds to Shah, no run, there's evidence of Shah's Pakistani roots. He went for a drive then realised he was early on it, so held back the stroke and let the bat twist in his hands so he played it squarer

45.6

Hinds to Shah, 2 runs, opens the face again, guiding it out to the off side

England 132/1   RO Hinds 4-0-10-0

Hinds to Strauss, no run, too wide and ignored

Hinds to Strauss, no run, short, Strauss cuts and only just short of point

47.3

Hinds to Strauss, FOUR, so close! A huge slice of luck for Strauss as he goes back and cuts this almost out of Ramdin's gloves. Gayle, the lone slip, didn't see it (and to be fair, he wouldn't have caught that). Races away for four

Hinds to Strauss, 1 run, cut out to cover

47.5

Hinds to Shah, 2 runs, this is short and slapped by Shah

47.6

51.4

Hinds to Strauss, 2 runs, ooh outside edge! Hello! That too could've ended up at slip, had there been more than just one

Hinds to Shah, no run, cracked to leg

57.2

Hinds to Shah, no run, opens the face and glides it out to point

57.3

Hinds to Shah, FOUR, right in the block and Shah cannot resist this. There's no one behind the bowler, or the umpire, and he deposits it for four. Strong, confident stroke

57.4

57.5

Hinds to Shah, no run, well bowled on off stump

59.5

Hinds to Shah, no run, on middle-and-leg this time, turned to short-leg. No intent behind the stroke

59.6

Hinds to Shah, FOUR, shot! Shah was so quick to pounce on that, half-slapping half-driving it through cover. Inventive cricket

63.3

Hinds to Strauss, no run, forward and defended

63.4

England 225/1   RO Hinds 14-2-49-0

67.3

67.4

England 239/1   RO Hinds 15-2-59-0

118.1

118.2

Hinds to Pietersen, 1 run, too straight. Nudged to leg for a jogged single

118.3

Hinds to Collingwood, 1 run, short, wide and smacked off the back foot to bring up his fifty and he's laughing his head off. Not sure what all that's about - he's grinning like a Cheshire cat at Flintoff in the dressing room, as though he's just won the lottery

England 405/4   RO Hinds 19-4-65-0

159.1

Hinds to Collingwood, no run, width, and dabbed with no foot movement out to point

159.4

Hinds to Broad, 2 runs, tickled round the corner, and Broad hustles through for two

159.5

Hinds to Broad, OUT, the declaration must surely be imminent now. An ambitious drive through the covers, a grazed edge to the keeper, and Broad goes for a well-crafted innings
