5.35pm The side that couldn't win for three years now can't lose, even when it rains for most of the game! A hugely impressive team performance to pluck a victory from nowhere. Ballistic batting, led by Ben Duckett, and outstanding seam bowling, with Luke Fletcher the hero with match figures of 10 for 57, and Stuart Broad putting in the hard yards for five crucial scalps. They are top of Group One, and very ominously placed now.

Paterson to Tongue, OUT

Pat's got your Tongue! Off stump out of the ground! That's superb bowling, tightens his line by half a bat's width, and bends a length ball past a forlorn forward defensive, to send the stump cartwheeling! It's all over bar the ululating
