Gayle to Cook, OUT, superb catch by Smith at slip! That's top class. Short and wide, Cook rocks back to cut but doesn't get hold of it and the ball flies low to Smith's right. The ball hits the wrists of his two hands as he leans forward, and scoops it up off his shoelaces to take a seriously slick catch

AN Cook c Smith b Gayle 52 (158m 134b 5x4 0x6) SR: 38.80

England 123/1   AJ Strauss 67* (122b 9x4 1x6)   CH Gayle 8.2-1-22-1

Taylor to Shah, OUT, a mix-up here and it's curtains for Shah! He came forward, dropping it out to cover and set off immediately but there was no communication with Strauss, and despite a dive, he was miles short

OA Shah run out 57 (141m 100b 8x4 1x6) SR: 57.00

England 276/2   AJ Strauss 158* (250b 22x4 1x6)   JE Taylor 12.1-2-29-0

Edwards to Strauss, OUT, got him! Strauss departs to a lazy, slightly tired stroke to a quicker bouncer. Banged in on middle-and-leg, he went to hook and it looped meekly as Edwards scooped an easy return catch

AJ Strauss c & b Edwards 169 (346m 278b 24x4 1x6) SR: 60.79

England 295/3   KP Pietersen 7* (31b)   FH Edwards 13.5-2-37-1

Edwards to Anderson, OUT, that's the spot. The first wicket goes down as Edwards gets his line right, and Anderson pushes limply outside off. A simple catch for Ramdin, and that will perk the fielders up

JM Anderson c †Ramdin b Edwards 4 (21m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

England 311/4   KP Pietersen 17* (40b 1x4)   FH Edwards 15.5-2-44-2

Taylor to Pietersen, OUT, and he strikes straight away, Pietersen goes back aiming to punch into the off side, the ball keeps a tad low and a thick inside edge slams into his leg stump, sending it sprawling

KP Pietersen b Taylor 51 (198m 132b 4x4 0x6) SR: 38.63

England 405/5   PD Collingwood 60* (102b 10x4)   JE Taylor 18.1-4-53-1

Taylor to Flintoff, OUT, what an inspired bowling change ... the ball keeps low, completely beating Flintoff, who is caught half forward, for pace and cleans him up comprehensively

A Flintoff b Taylor 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 405/6   PD Collingwood 60* (102b 10x4)   JE Taylor 18.3-4-53-2

Nash to Prior, OUT, Prior tries to whack this over the top but skies it miles and miles in the air. Chanderpaul readies and steadies himself at mid-off to take an easy catch

MJ Prior c Chanderpaul b Nash 39 (84m 61b 6x4 0x6) SR: 63.93

England 467/7   PD Collingwood 83* (160b 12x4)   BP Nash 9.2-2-30-1

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

SCJ Broad c †Ramdin b Hinds 44 (54m 55b 6x4 1x6) SR: 80.00

England 529/8   PD Collingwood 100* (186b 13x4)   RO Hinds 19.5-4-69-1

Hinds to Collingwood, OUT, smashed out to the deep, Edwards this time is in position for the catch at midwicket, and that is the declaration

PD Collingwood c Smith b Hinds 113 (302m 202b 14x4 0x6) SR: 55.94

England 566/9   GP Swann 20* (17b 3x4)   RO Hinds 22.2-4-86-2
