Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Finn Allen, 7b), 2-21 (Miles Hammond, 17b), 3-33 (Liam Livingstone, 26b), 4-58 (Moeen Ali, 54b), 5-67 (Daniel Bell-Drummond, 58b), 6-80 (Chris Benjamin, 74b), 7-80 (Benny Howell, 76b), 8-87 (Chris Cooke, 81b), 9-87 (Tom Helm, 83b), 10-87 (Imran Tahir, 84b)
7b to FH Allen, snicked off! Klaassen makes the early breakthrough and gets the big fish! Gets his line right this time, in the channel outside off on a good length, and Allen was cramped looking to punch through the off side. 9/1
17b to MAH Hammond, picks out the boundary-rider at deep midwicket! Same ball, full on leg stump, Same shot, whipping up and over the leg side. Different result, with Lammonby settling underneath it and pounching the catch. Looks like a little cutter from Finn, rolling his fingers down the side of it. 21/2
26b to LS Livingstone, big legbreak, thick outside edge to short third and Parkinson is buzzing! Parkinson throws one up wide outside off stump and this turned sharply. Livingstone was looking to flay him through the off side but only got a thick outside edge, and Klaassen took an excellent catch diving forwards. 33/3
81b to CB Cooke, absolute beauty! Straight into the Parkinson highlights reel and he is beaming in celebration Pitches miles outside leg stump, pretty full, and Cooke is hanging back looking to clip it into the leg side. It rags off the surface, and pins back his off stump! Cooke shakes his head, completely bemused by it. Buttler grins under the helmet.. 87/8
83b to TG Helm, chipped straight to short cover, Parky is on fire! Limp prod forward, playing with hard hands away from the body, and Helm can only flick it to Munro in tight. 87/9
84b to Imran Tahir, smashed on the pad, loud shout for lbw and Buttler reviews! Bat and pad were close to one another as Tahir came forward to defend, and Ultra-Edge confirms it was pad first, just below the knee roll. "This is out" says Daren Sammy on comms. And he's right! Pitched in line, hit in line, and was knocking back his stumps. Parkinson ends with 4 for 9 from 19 balls, Phoenix rolled for 87!. 87/10
58b to DJ Bell-Drummond, massive turn, chipped back! Another ragging legbreak which sticks in the pitch. DBD shapes to whip into the leg side but can only manage a leading edge. The pressure tells. Harrison gets his man!. 67/5
74b to CG Benjamin, flat lebgbreak, lofted down the ground, and Salt takes a brilliant catch at long-on! This is the sort of catch that would have been other-worldly ten years ago but is routine now. Running round on the rope, at full stretch, took the catch off-balance and threw it up to himself, jumping back inside the boundary and snaffling it at the second attempt. 80/6
54b to MM Ali, cutter angled across him from over the wicket, 69mph, and Finn takes the catch at short third! Brathwaite gets Moeen. Felt like he needed to force the pace, targeting the seamer after so much spin, but didn't read the offcutter, and skied it behind square. Carlos has a dance to celebrate. 58/4
76b to BAC Howell, caught behind off the back of the bat! Into the pitch at 79mph, Howell was deceived as it stuck in the surface while he shaped to pull, and it skewed through the Buttler off the back of his bat. 80/7

Fall of wickets: 1-32 (Phil Salt, 18b), 2-48 (Joe Clarke, 33b), 3-57 (Colin Munro, 42b), 4-85 (Jos Buttler, 71b)
18b to PD Salt, and now Salt is going home! Flighted full on middle, Salt tries to heave this high over midwicket and misses. Tahir celebrates like it's the final wicket of the World Cup screaming and pumping his fists wildly while staring down Salt. Clearly Tahir thinks this game is far from over!. 32/1
42b to C Munro, charge from Munro now to a good length ball dragged a fraction shorter and wider, Munro gets nowhere near it and it turns into a straightforward stumping.. 57/3
71b to JC Buttler, Livingstone darts this in very very full and flat on off stump, goes to sweep trying to end the match with one blow but it skids low under the shot and crashes into off stump.. 85/4
33b to JM Clarke, hello! Good length ball on fourth stump continues on with the angle and beats Clarke leaning away from leg stump trying to punch through cover. Off stump is knocked back!. 48/2
