BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Fidel Edwards2456312.621116015
92.5 to AJ Strauss, good grief, what a misjudgment! Strauss has been bowled around his legs as he stepped across his stumps to flick to leg. The first wicket of the morning is in the bag!. 263/3
Daren Powell1617914.936011001
7.5 to AN Cook, full length, just outside off, and a feathered edge through to the keeper! That's a lovely delivery, just leaving the batsman, and it's the breakthrough that West Indies desperately needed!. 26/1
Lionel Baker2347723.34967001
147.2 to PD Collingwood, ooh not a bad shout from Baker as he cuts this back into Collingwood, hitting him on the back leg. Gayle signals for a referral as the umpire's turned it down, and it looks a good call to me. No bat involved, and the height also looks fine - Aleem Dar is the third umpire who's providing Tiffen with information. And up goes the finger! Baker has a wicket, his first in Tests. 486/5
155.6 to SCJ Broad, gosh, a wicket. How improbable. Broad blazes a length delivery down the ground, in the air, to Simmons at long-off who claims a comfortable catch at chest height. 530/6
Brendan Nash2337703.34929000
Chris Gayle2618003.07933001
Ryan Hinds39.5212613.161466003
55.3 to KP Pietersen, BOWLED HIM! Following on from the one which turned, this one holds its line on Pietersen and bowls him neck-and-crop! He was expecting spin; there was none. Hinds is beyond ecstatic, sliding on the ground football-style and deservedly so. 156/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson3277012.181519000
165.6 to D Ramdin, he's got him this time! At last Anderson can celebrate, and how he deserves that wicket. Reverse-swinging back prodigiously into Ramdin who plays all around it, and up goes the finger. 519/7
Stuart Broad30116732.2315110010
22.5 to DBL Powell, and that's the end of that! Powell was pushing forward, so Broad forced him back with a splice-rattler. The ball lobbed into the air, a simple catch for gully, and that's the breakthrough. The nightwatchman goes for a duck. 96/2
139.1 to BP Nash, driven, loosely, in the air, straight to gully, and that's the breakthrough, straight after the interval!. 437/5
177.4 to FH Edwards, reward for Broad at last. Short, rising outside off, a thin tickle to the keeper, and after while feels like an age to the bowler, umpire Tiffin raises his finger.. 543/9
Amjad Khan25111114.44112120212
32.4 to RR Sarwan, full, straight, a hint of drift, and that is absolutely stone-dead! Amjad Khan strikes, and Ramnaresh Sarwan has failed for the first time this series!. 118/3
Graeme Swann45.41213032.8421212400
52.5 to CH Gayle, what a catch! Gayle nailed this cover drive and Strauss, at a very short extra cover, stuck out his left hand and after a bit of a bobble (it was hit incredibly hard) the ball stuck. 195/3
150.6 to RO Hinds, a swish, a miss and smart work from Prior who whips off the bails as Hinds' back foot drags out of the crease. No need for a referral for that one. 482/6
168.4 to CH Gayle, what a catch! Gayle nailed this cover drive and Strauss, at a very short extra cover, stuck out his left hand and after a bit of a bobble (it was hit incredibly hard) the ball stuck. 526/8
178.4 to LS Baker, has Matt Prior's Bye World Record Attempt (BWRA) been thwarted, and have England taken the first-innings lead? Baker offers no stroke as the ball pitches outside off and raps the pad. The finger goes up, but sure enough, it has gone to a referral. Yowch, that is tight. The ball would, I reckon, have skimmed the outside of the off stump, hence the bails would have come off, and therefore, though it is marginal, it is the correct call. 544/10
Monty Panesar43611422.6519511000
16.6 to DS Smith, bowled him! Monty lets go that celebration which we haven't seen for a while. Smith came forward tentatively and it beat the outside edge, turning just a hint to knock over the off stump. Poor defensive technique: he didn't cover the line of the ball, and nor did he get to the pitch. 90/1
57.1 to LMP Simmons, that's the line from Panesar, perfectly wicket-to-wicket, thumps the front pad, and up goes the finger! A brief discussion and it has been put to referral, but there's nothing wrong with that .... 203/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Fidel Edwards11.416715.74306014
38.4 to KP Pietersen, pulled to Bravo at deep midwicket. 237/6
Lionel Baker813924.87255000
5.4 to OA Shah, gone this time! Very similar shot and dismissal to Strauss's but this time Harper's finger is raised! Wide of the off stump, Shah leant back and tried to carve it through the covers but got a thin (and audible...) edge. 27/2
33.5 to MJ Prior, full, straight and bowled him! Prior tried to smash that over midwicket but rather took his eye off the ball, and his middle stump was knocked back. 207/5
Chris Gayle301615.3361000
4.5 to AJ Strauss, got him! Golden-arm Gayle does it again, tossing this up to Strauss and he drives inside out, pushing it meekly back to the bowler. 26/1
Ryan Hinds805727.12197100
13.3 to AN Cook, pushes forward outside off and misses - lovely delivery spinning back into the left-hander. Ramdin appeals - and up goes the finger! This is comical. How on earth is that out? The replays are inconclusive, though we can't hear a noise as the ball passes the bat, so there isn't enough evidence to the contrary and it will have to be given out. We're waiting an age, as ever. It's been more than three minutes by my clock, which only adds to the lottery of a farce that this all is. Eventually Harper's finger is raised again and Cook's off. 72/3
19.1 to PD Collingwood, there's the breakthrough! On the pads, a bit of turn, Collingwood attempts to work through the leg-side but finds a leading edge, and a simple looping chance pops back to the bowler!. 101/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1672431.50864000
6.2 to LMP Simmons, staggering catch from Collingwood at second slip! Simmons was working that into the leg-side, it skims off the leading edge, and Colly saw it late and scooped it off the turf as he dived with his right hand. 25/1
37.1 to BP Nash, my goodness me, round the wicket, nipping off the seam, cracking Nash on the kneeroll, and that is out! No referrals remaining, but it would have been futile anyhow. England sense an opportunity here. 85/5
62.4 to DBL Powell, BOWLED HIM! The inswinger from Anderson which ducks back late on Powell and beats him for pace, shattering his stumps. Absolute corking delivery. 109/8
Stuart Broad53901.80272000
Graeme Swann21131330.611160000
9.6 to DS Smith, down on one knee, an ambitious slog across the line, and unless there's an inside-edge, this is plumb! Strikes the back pad, and that is stone dead. After a brief consultation, they choose to waste a referral as well, which is a bit daft .... 31/2
18.5 to RR Sarwan, got him! He's got him this time! Another fine catch from Collingwood at first slip and Sarwan, invincible for most of this series, has failed twice in the Test. A thick outside edge scoots low to Collingwood's left who dives forward and snaffles a really smart catch. 58/3
34.1 to S Chanderpaul, tosses this up on the off stump and Chanderpaul tries to defend but is rapped on the back pad! Up goes the finger! They only have one review left, but Chanderpaul goes for it ... and replays show it would have scooted onto hit the off stump, but it was a pretty tight call. Up goes the finger for a second time. 80/4
Amjad Khan401102.75191012
Monty Panesar19.593421.711056000
43.1 to RO Hinds, the breakthrough comes from the first delivery! Late swerve back into the left-hander, the ball lobs off the pad to Collingwood at slip, but was there bat first? Harper says yes, Hinds is aghast, but there are no referrals left!. 90/6
56.4 to CH Gayle, he's got him! Panesar finally gets his man, tossing it up on middle-and-off and it spins back into the left-hander. That looked about right to me. Nice and full and much straighter this time, and that would've knocked out middle stump. 107/7
