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

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...

Pietersen to Powell, no run, comes forward to defend

The batsmen have a chat. The Barmies hate it and are booing! Great fun

Pietersen to Powell, no run, very full, safely coped with

Umpires are chatting about the light with Strauss. No more pace allowed. Pietersen, therefore, is into the attack. I think he might self-combust if he gets a wicket

Swann to Edwards, no run, lovely delivery, best of the over, but he plays it with soft hands. Top batting!

Okay, the light really is fading fast now

Flintoff to Powell, no run, incredibly close! Reverse swing back into the right hander who prods forward a little cluelessly, but it misses his inside edge

Strauss looks like he needs a beta blocker. I could do with a couple.

Flintoff to Powell, no run, too wide, way too wide

Flintoff to Powell, no run, a bouncer, easily evaded

He's in great pain, Flintoff, gritting his teeth and looking in some discomfort even walking back to his mark

Flintoff to Powell, 2 runs, flicked off middle stump through midwicket!

Huge cheers ring around the ARG from the locals. The atmosphere is beyond electric. It's joyful

Flintoff to Powell, no run, cautiously defended on the front foot

Really getting dark now...

  • Powell concerned about bowling form

    Daren Powell knows he is under pressure to perform with the ball

  • Positive result for Windies despite shabby cricket

    The resoluteness from West Indies' last pair was the difference between a psychologically devastating defeat and a result that keeps the hosts' spirits up

  • Backyard Blues

    To say Kensington Oval has not been a happy hunting ground for West Indies recently is putting it mildly

  • Going through the pain barrier

    Andrew McGlashan presents the plays of the fifth day between West Indies and England in Antigua

  • Windies secure the great escape

    West Indies' final pair of Fidel Edwards and Daren Powell blocked out the final 36 minutes of a magnificent Test match at the Antigua Recreation Ground, to secure the draw that maintained their 1-0 lead in the series, and revived the momentum that had bee
