BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor2877322.6013410001
126.1 to KP Pietersen, 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. 405/5
126.3 to A Flintoff, what an inspired bowling change ... the ball keeps low, completely beating Flintoff, who is caught half forward, for pace and cleans him up comprehensively. 405/6
Fidel Edwards2627522.881158013
89.5 to AJ Strauss, 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. 295/3
93.5 to JM Anderson, 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. 311/4
Daren Powell26310303.9610915100
Chris Gayle1314113.15566000
42.2 to AN Cook, 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. 123/1
Sulieman Benn39514303.6615715201
Ryan Hinds22.248623.858510000
159.5 to SCJ Broad, 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. 529/8
165.2 to PD Collingwood, smashed out to the deep, Edwards this time is in position for the catch at midwicket, and that is the declaration. 566/9
Brendan Nash1123413.09506000
146.2 to MJ Prior, 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. 467/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1915502.89897022
Andrew Flintoff14.234733.27698003
60.2 to RO Hinds, but he's gone this time - Hinds' patience runs out. Angled across the left hander, he couldn't resist having a little nibble at it and Prior took a good catch low to his left. 200/4
87.2 to BP Nash, draws Nash into a loose stroke outside off, just following it without any foot movement, and Collingwood takes a comfortable catch at second slip, low to his right. 278/8
89.2 to JE Taylor, and he's got him. Taylor goes for another pull, as he should in this situation, but skies it back to Flintoff. 285/10
Steve Harmison1234413.66596105
8.4 to CH Gayle, a half-volley outside off which Gayle tries to carve through the off side, but he can't quite lift it over Anderson at mid-off who holds onto a decent catch. 45/1
Stuart Broad1442411.71702000
61.4 to S Chanderpaul, got him! That only just carried through to Prior who scooped it up low off his bootlaces. It was full, outside off and Chanderpaul couldn't resist a drive, feathering it through to the keeper. 201/5
Graeme Swann2475752.371136100
28.2 to DS Smith, tossed up on middle-and-leg with a touch of drift and Smith goes for a huge slog over long-on and he's bowled! Poor, impetuous stroke by Smith having played so well for the first hour. 109/2
38.1 to DBL Powell, got him! Lovely piece of bowling and a fine, smart catch by Collingwood. Classical off-spinner's delivery which spins on Powell, who came forward to defend, the ball taking a thick outside edge to Collingwood's left. He rolled and tumbled and got both hands to it. 130/3
75.3 to RR Sarwan, Swann's done it again! A loose shot from Sarwan who is rightly furious with himself - he's done a Pietersen and tried to get to his ton with a maximum. He skipped down the pitch, tried to clobber Swann over the top but miscued it to Flintoff at short mid-on. 251/6
75.4 to D Ramdin, he's caught-and-bowled! The meekest of full-tosses is met with the meekest of prods, and Swann takes one of the simplest catches to his right - and he's on a hat-trick!. 251/7
88.2 to SJ Benn, five wickets for Swann here as he raps Benn plumb in front. Benn knew it, Swann knew it and the umpire also knew it. 279/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Fidel Edwards913614.00404015
4.3 to AJ Strauss, ah that's good cricket by West Indies. Edwards rattled Strauss in his last over, and here he pitched it up to lure Strauss into a drive, the ball flying to Smith's right at second slip. He takes it with both hands, moving smoothly to his right. 23/1
Jerome Taylor923403.77386000
Daren Powell703324.71273100
19.5 to JM Anderson, he's gone this time! Tempting length for the cut, but Anderson can only get the thinnest of slithers on the bat, and Ramdin tidies up. 69/2
25.5 to OA Shah, bowled him! This cut back jaggedly on Shah who tried to lift him over long-on, but he was too late on it and back went his middle stump. 97/3
Sulieman Benn1415824.14475001
44.5 to KP Pietersen, switch-hit, and that's out! The first time the shot has properly let him down, it turned into a genuine left-hander's caught-behind as he aimed a slog sweep over midwicket but only found an outside edge. Relief for Benn as he breaks his duck for the match. 189/5
48.6 to A Flintoff, excellent low catch as Flintoff swishes a full toss straight to midwicket. Ryan Hinds dives to his right and that completes a pair!. 206/8
Ryan Hinds1114524.09391300
37.3 to AN Cook, got him! That's a brute of a delivery from Hinds which spat off a length, rearing up off his glove and it balloons to Smith who takes the simplest of snaffles. 145/4
45.4 to PD Collingwood, gone this time! Another wild fling of the bat, plenty intent but the execution was lacking. Collingwood's stumps are splattered, and Strauss shuffles in his seat again. 195/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson2566822.721208101
106.1 to JE Taylor, got him! And Ian Bell comes to the party as the substitute fielder! On the pads, flicked airily away, and Bell dives excitedly at short midwicket to cling on. That is a vital wicket. 313/7
110.6 to D Ramdin, bowled him! Ramdin tried to cut this with a cross-batted stroke but again his feet were completely planted, and he inside edges this depressively onto his stumps. 322/8
Stuart Broad2136933.28919010
28.5 to RO Hinds, that's definitely beaten him! Broad strikes in his first over, as Hinds drove on the up, straight into the hands of short midwicket. Another fatal loss of concentration ends a good innings, and West Indies are dangling in the breeze for the moment. 96/3
81.4 to RR Sarwan, bowled him! That cuts back at the last moment and kept a little low - one of the few deliveries that have done that today - and Sarwan was too late on it, beaten by the movement and lack of bounce. 244/4
87.2 to S Chanderpaul, GOT HIM! A superb delivery from Broad, angling into Chanderpaul before cutting away just a touch, and he nibbles at it outside off to hand Prior an easy catch. 261/5
Graeme Swann39129232.3519012000
23.4 to CH Gayle, down for the sweep again, but that time it's fuller and loopier, and it's also absolutely plumb! Superb bowling, just enough variation to encourage a mistake, and that would have hit the middle of off stump. 81/2
96.3 to BP Nash, that's the breakthrough, and that looked especially tight! There was no discernible spin, and struck the middle of the pad well before the bat was involved. Umpire Harper thinks long and hard, but gets his decision right in the end. 287/6
117.6 to SJ Benn, got him! He's got him this time! Poor old Benn pads up for seemingly the millionth time, and this time he's rapped absolutely bang in front. It pitched in line, and there was enough turn that it was going to hit leg-stump. 353/9
Steve Harmison2235412.45964000
18.4 to DS Smith, and he's got him! Rapped on the pads, Smith went back on his toes and tried to defend - was it too high? It did look a bit high at first glance, but the decision's been made and he's out. 59/1
