BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jerome Taylor2428323.4510411012
6.4 to AJ Strauss, well, well, out of nowhere West Indies have a breakthrough as Strauss plays a loose back-foot drive and gets an edge that carries through low to Ramdin...important breakthrough for the visitors and that should get them into the game. 28/1
106.4 to RS Bopara, got him! A floaty half-volley which he drives while rather misbalanced, the ball scooting straight to mid-off where Nash holds a fine catch. 368/8
Fidel Edwards26.349263.4712213017
32.5 to AN Cook, there's the breakthrough for West Indies, a fullish delivery on off stump that Cook plays forward to and he gets an inside edge which crashes into the stumps...a disappointing end for Cook after doing the hard work, but Edwards is delighted. 92/2
32.6 to KP Pietersen, and goes first ball! Great piece of bowling from Edwards and a superb catch from Ramdin, pitched up on the stumps and there's enough late movement to take the outside edge...Ramdin was nearly wrong-footed but stuck his right hand out and grabbed a brilliant catch. 92/3
38.6 to PD Collingwood, and another one goes, brilliant bowling from Edwards, a full ball outside off and Collingwood is caught flat-footed as he prods forward and the edge goes low to second slip. 109/4
60.1 to MJ Prior, it's number four for Edwards, a loose shot from Prior as he drives off the back foot straight to cover...it's one of his favourite shots but this time he was a bit early on it and couldn't find the gap. 193/5
111.2 to JM Anderson, and there it is, Edwards has five as Anderson cuts again and gets a regulation top edge through to Ramdin...a great moment for Edwards who salutes his team-mates and soaks up the moment. 377/9
111.3 to G Onions, well, that was brief...a low full toss crashes through Onions' defences to make a mess of the stumps. He didn't seem too keen to get in line.. 377/10
Lionel Baker2457503.121149120
Sulieman Benn2748423.111109000
81.5 to SCJ Broad, gone this time, at last, as he cuts this shorter ball to Taylor's right in the gully. Subdued celebrations from the West Indians and a fine 38 from Broad (albeit one with at least three missed chances). 262/6
85.2 to TT Bresnan, got him! Well, it was a quick ball scooting into his pads but it did seem to be going over the top to me. The umpire knows better, though, and up goes the finger. 275/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Stuart Broad1105625.09439000
8.5 to CH Gayle, there's the breakthrough, Gayle is done by his lack of footwork as he drags into the stumps...he went that way during the Tests and one-dayers in West Indies and it was a nothing sort of push he was trying to play. Well bowled by Broad, who has strung a decent couple of overs together. 46/1
12.4 to RR Sarwan, got him! Well well. It was a slightly wider delivery and really Sarwan ought to have left it alone. Instead, with no movement of the feet, he fished injudiciously and got a thin edge through to Prior, and Broad has two. 70/2
Graeme Swann521633.20241100
19.1 to DS Smith, bowled him! A corker from Swann who charges around like a maniac to celebrate. Tossed up and it just holds its line, and bowls him through the gate! Well, well - Smith's done it again and missed a straight one. 99/3
19.2 to S Chanderpaul, caught him, got him, he's got him! Swann's on a hat-trick! Lovely flighted delivery just outside off and Chanderpaul, with no feet movement, edges it to Collingwood's left at first slip who takes a simple catch!. 99/4
23.6 to BP Nash, and another goes! Again a lovely piece of bowling from Swann and another good catch from Collingwood. Very similar to Chanderpaul's wicket as Nash drove at one that spun away, and this one was a better catch at slip. 117/5
James Anderson703204.57296010
Graham Onions9.313854.00405000
24.1 to LMP Simmons, they are falling like skittles! A brute of a ball from Onions which climbs at Simmons and takes the shoulder of the bat, flying to first slip where Andrew Strauss jumps to his right to take a good catch. 117/6
24.3 to JE Taylor, I'm losing count here, Onions gets his second and he won't care that this one is a bit of a strangle down the leg side as Taylor gloves an attempted pull to Prior. It's a good take by the keeper and Onions is starting to enjoy Test cricket. 117/7
24.6 to SJ Benn, gone! The procession continues, and Onions has three in the over as Benn gets a thick outside edge to third slip where Graeme Swann (who else) dives to his left take a sharp catch. 119/8
26.1 to D Ramdin, he's got his fourth! Absolutely dead. Full, straight and fast - and Onions falls over somehow, celebrating mid-fall as the umpire's finger goes up!. 128/9
32.3 to LS Baker, got him! Well bowled Onions - he has his fifth, trapping Baker plumb in front. 152/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1563822.53736000
4.1 to CH Gayle, gone! First wicket of the second innings, a limp prod outside off stump at a ball that seams away from back of a length, the catch goes comfortably to Graeme Swann at third slip who snaffles it easily. 14/1
6.6 to RR Sarwan, that's another! Anderson takes his second of the innings, jags back late at Sarwan who can do nothing except drag it into his stumps. A key man is removed and England making repaid inroads.. 22/2
Stuart Broad19.226433.318810010
58.5 to D Ramdin, got him! A near-identical delivery to the ball before, shaping and cutting back into Ramdin who was late onto his defensive, the ball sneaking into the stumps. 222/6
66.4 to FH Edwards, terrific catch by Bresnan! Very fine delivery from Broad, a nasty and accurate bouncer heading towards Edwards' chest, and he could only fend it to Bresnan's left in the gully who took an excellent snaffle. 249/9
72.2 to BP Nash, Nash uppercuts this, the ball circling in the brisk wind but Cook's lurking at deep point and takes an appropriately excellent catch - a disappointing end to a resilient innings. 256/10
Tim Bresnan731702.42343000
Graeme Swann1743932.29846000
24.6 to S Chanderpaul, got him! Swann's done Chanderpaul for the second time in the match! Tossed up on middle-and-off, Chanderpaul pushed forward and got a thick inside edge onto his pad and it ballooned out to Bopara at silly point who dived forward to swallow an easy catch. 75/4
63.5 to JE Taylor, gone this time! Taylor went for the sweep but it was too full and he's struck on the back leg in front of middle...that was heading straight for the stumps. 243/7
65.5 to SJ Benn, gone! Another for Swann, beats Benn with the arm ball and he was nowhere near making contact with that as he played a pretty limp push at the ball. It snaked past the inside edge and took the off stump. 246/8
Graham Onions1226425.335214010
23.3 to LMP Simmons, well taken! Whipped off hip aerially and it flew to Cook at square leg who had to dive forward, snaffling a fine low catch. 70/3
25.2 to DS Smith, bowled him! What a ball from Onions, swinging back rapidly - a much fuller length this time, and Smith's middle stump and the stump camera are both knocked out of the ground. Emphatic. 79/5
