BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor18.383631.94965003
92.5 to CJ Jordan, fired towards leg stump and Jordan flicks at it again, there's a sound on the way through to Ramdin... and Bruce Oxenford's finger goes up. Taylor and the fielders put in a strong appeal but Jordan, after taking a moment to consult with Buttler, asks for the review. It was very close to bat and pad, definitely a sound and without Hot Spot or Snicko, there's no real grounds to quibble - so up goes the finger again and off trudges Jordan. 247/8
96.2 to SCJ Broad, targets the stumps, hits the stumps, Broad's brief blast is over! Middle stump is pole-axed, Broad had stopped bothering to come forward and was beaten for pace... Pretty good bowling to a tailender. 257/9
96.3 to JM Anderson, bowled him, stumps all over the place! Taylor repeats the trick, 89mph and this swung back at Anderson, who at least attempted to get his bat down next to the front pad, it actually flicked the knee roll and then sent off stump a metre back. 257/10
Shannon Gabriel1534723.13687010
1.3 to IJL Trott, touch shorter, Trott gets into a right tangle in trying to play it away on the leg side, it wasn't a pull and wasn't a flick to leg either, whatever it was it popped up a catch to square leg. Fielder runs in a few yards and dives forward to take the catch. Trott beaten for pace, really not sure what he was trying to do with this delivery. West Indies said they would target England with short bowling and it's worked here, Trott's old weakness exposed with a sharp delivery right on target about chest height. 0/1
85.6 to BA Stokes, tries to steer one off the back foot again and Stokes has picked out gully! So, he'll not be reaching any landmarks before Cook, that's another wicket for Gabriel. It was not quite short or wide enough to cut and he sliced it to the fielder, similar to his first-innings dismissal in Antigua. 233/6
Jason Holder1643422.12826000
15.3 to GS Ballance, oh, bowled! No doubt about this one, middle stump is flat on the ground! Holder roars in celebration, Ballance takes a look back to confirm his suspicion and then heads for the changing rooms... Maybe a little loose in defence, given what the previous ball did, but that was a peach from Holder, a perfect length to hit the top of middle stump as it snaked back between bat and pad. 38/2
17.2 to IR Bell, slower ball, chipped back to the bowler - Holder has another! Bell was pushing forward, through the shot earlier than he expected because of the lack of pace, it went pretty sharply to Holder's left but he closed those great big paws around the chance, then threw it up in celebration... England are in some bother here. 38/3
Marlon Samuels2755311.961311200
89.2 to AN Cook, tossed up outside off, Cook cuts - and nicks it to Ramdin! Would you Adam and Eve it, England's captain falls to what will be the last ball of the day, caught behind for 105 to swing things firmly to the opposition. Not sure what you can put that down to other than a lapse in concentration, it was short enough to cut but he just got a thin under-edge into the gloves. He stares stonily ahead, leaning on his bat, before dragging himself off while the crowd applauds. 240/7
Veerasammy Permaul2018614.307712000
31.4 to JE Root, back to force into the covers again and nicks it behind! Thin edge to Ramdin. Slightly back of a length ball, Root rocked back to nudge it away from a foot outside off but got a little edge as it turned away and Ramdin held on well. A wicket totally out of the blue. 91/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson12.454263.31635200
0.2 to KC Brathwaite, pitched up and edged, Brathwaite is gone second ball! Anderson strikes early, nicely taken just above the ground by Jordan to dismiss his fellow Combermere alumnus... Brathwaite was drawn forwards and the ball just straightened enough to be deadly (in a figurative sense). 0/1
4.5 to SD Hope, but this time Cook holds on! Thin edge and Cook came forward to take the catch, but they will check if it carried. The umpires thought it was out on the field but wanted it checked just in case. Cook was convinced and claimed the catch immediately, looks as if it has gone straight into the hands. Full length from Anderson on a fourth-stump line, Hope plays at it, gets a healthy edge and Cook does the rest. 5/2
8.6 to MN Samuels, full length angled back towards off stump, Samuels leaves this alone and oh my goodness bad decision, given out lbw! Samuels goes for a review but this looked stone dead and indeed, Hawk Eye has it smashing middle and leg three-quarters up. The inswinger does the trick for Anderson, Samuels totally deceived, superb bowling. 21/3
45.6 to V Permaul, on a length, at the body - and fended straight to short leg! Permaul's rebellion is put down, Anderson has his fourth. It was a sharp catch by the sub fielder, Adam Lyth, as it came off the inside edge, think it hit him on the shoulder and then his hands latched on. The ball was a legcutter, bounced more than Permaul was expecting. 162/8
47.5 to JE Taylor, done him, rattles the stumps, bowled off the pads! Five-for for Anderson, he cranked the pace up and aimed for the timber, Taylor played around it and the bails were dislodged. 178/9
49.4 to J Blackwood, full again, Blackwood slogs down the ground, wide of long-off... but Moeen runs around and takes an excellent diving catch! Blackwood was going full bore for the hundred, with only the last man for company, but that was not a particularly great shot. Anderson finishes with a six-for, for the third time in his career. 189/10
Stuart Broad1033113.10485000
36.2 to D Ramdin, touch wider line, draws Ramdin into a drive and he edges it behind! Low catch for Buttler safely pouched. Looked like a bit of a cutter and it's just held it's line enough to take a thin outside edge. Nice full length had Ramdin eyeing up the drive. 107/6
Moeen Ali1025615.60399100
15.3 to DM Bravo, pushed through a little quicker, Bravo can't withdraw his bat this time - edged and taken at first slip! Moeen makes an immediate impact and West Indies' hopes of shoring things up have already been holed below the waterline. Was probably short and wide enough to leave but the first two balls had Bravo in two minds. 37/4
Joe Root913413.77404100
27.6 to S Chanderpaul, pushed through, spinning away and Chanderpaul goes back, nicks a sharp chance... which Jordan plucks from thin air once again! Brilliant slip fielding, he's got the reactions of a panther. Definitely a cool cat of some kind. He was moving to his left as Chanderpaul pushed away from his body, had a split second to grab the edge with his right. 82/5
Chris Jordan63400.66330000
Ben Stokes201718.5062100
39.6 to JO Holder, length ball that leaves the right-hander and this is nicked behind! Thin edge to Buttler, a little movement does the job and the change of bowling has worked. Holder pressing forward at this just outside off, it left him a little and took a thin outside edge to the keeper who pouched an easy catch. 124/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor11.113332.95525000
4.5 to IJL Trott, full on off, seams in a fraction to hit him on the pads... that's good enough for Bowden and up goes the finger! Excellent delivery from Taylor, pitched up and doing just enough to beat the bat on the inside; Trott briefly consults his captain but decides not to review, which looks like a wise decision, from the replay. He heads off, perhaps for the last time in an England shirt. Go well, Trotty. 11/1
8.3 to IR Bell, fuller and a straighter line, huge cry for lbw and given out! Bell bags a pair! But he reviews in the hope he has got some bat on this but he's missed it by a long way and Hawk Eye has the ball slamming into middle stump. Goodness what a mad day this is. Quick and straight from Taylor and West Indies are right back in this. 18/3
42.1 to JM Anderson, full and tailing in, slams into the front pad... but Bowden turns it down, so West Indies ask for the review and it is quickly justified as Hawk-Eye shows the ball heading for leg stump, halfway up. So, the decision is overturned, England are all out and Anderson sprints off to prepare for his job with the ball. 123/10
Shannon Gabriel741612.28361101
5.5 to AN Cook, length ball in the channel and Cook spars, nicks it to slip! Gabriel has removed the England captain, he punches the air in delight. That was clocked at 91mph again, there was a little extra kick off the surface which caught Cook slightly out of position, safely pouched at second. 13/2
Jason Holder931531.66462000
14.4 to JE Root, touch wider and Root drives again, gets a thick outside edge and is taken at first slip! Another wicket falls. Healthy outside edge and Bravo took it smartly low down to his left. Full length drawing Root out to driven this a couple of inches outside off, it left him slightly and Root nicked off. 28/4
38.3 to CJ Jordan, trapped in front this time, Bowden thinks about it... and gives him out! After a brief hesitation, Jordan reviews. The ball came back at Jordan this time, hit him on the knee roll, he was up on his toes but well in line; Hawk-Eye is going to be the clincher and it has the ball shaving the bails, umpire's call - so Jordan has to go, England eight down. 98/8
38.4 to SCJ Broad, bowled him first ball, off stump out of the ground! Superb yorker from Holder, right on the money from around the wicket, Broad was hanging back nervously on leg stump and got nowhere near keeping it out... Holder's on a hat-trick in front of his home crowd!. 98/9
Veerasammy Permaul1134333.90516100
19.3 to MM Ali, tossed up into the rough outside off, Moeen goes to cut and drags it on! What a blow for West Indies! So close to the close. It turned and kept a little low but was always too close to cut and Moeen pays the penalty, dragging it into middle stump. Rather lazy stroke. 39/5
27.2 to GS Ballance, got him! Strikes second ball. Lovely stuff. Tossed up outside off, Ballance leans forward, trying to cover for the spin, the ball goes straight on and the outside carries low to slip. 62/6
35.3 to BA Stokes, on the charge, a drive screws away off the outer half of the bat - and Chanderpaul snaffles it at extra cover! England lose their seventh, Permaul the man again, he maybe held this back a touch as Stokes came down the pitch, couldn't keep the drive down and the catch was taken safely. 95/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1343512.69635000
30.1 to S Chanderpaul, first ball! A bit of a loosener, really, outside off which Chanderpaul just prods and it and gets a bottom edge into the stumps. 80/4
Stuart Broad1352912.23644000
26.4 to MN Samuels, oh, bowled him, Broad has snuck one through! Hanging back has cost Samuels, he was stuck on the crease and the ball came back at him, it was quicker, touching 90mph and the perfect length to hit the top of middle and off... England break the stand. 70/3
Chris Jordan1152412.18542000
12.5 to SD Hope, full, swinging in and given lbw! The breakthrough for England, although Hope has reviewed. It's heading leg side. Might be clipping leg stump. Was considerable late movement. Well, it's smashing leg stump full on!. 35/1
Moeen Ali12.415414.26504300
13.3 to KC Brathwaite, edged and there's Jordan, another instinctive one-handed take at slip! England have a second...! Moeen removes Brathwaite with one drifting across him, didn't really turn and clipped the edge, another sharp chance but Ole Velcro Hands snapped it up, quite close to his body but only a fraction of time to react as he fell to his right. Jordan, back on his old manor, is at the centre of things for the tourists. 35/2
Joe Root841602.00411100
Ben Stokes502515.00182000
61.6 to DM Bravo, full toss from Stokes, opens the shoulders... and slaps it to mid-off! Broad catches it and throws the ball back, Bravo doesn't seem to believe it, there's actually a bit of discussion on the pitch before he realises he has to go. He'll get an ovation from the crowd, at least, it's been a wonderful innings. 188/5
