Jerome Taylor2026803.40939014
Fidel Edwards25111314.52113130014
96.3 to JM Anderson, he's got him this time. Full again, takes a deflection off the pads, and straight into middle stump. 326/3
Lionel Baker30311913.9612616030
85.5 to RS Bopara, what a delivery! Nips back sharply on Bopara, the ball shooting past the bat and onto his off stump. 282/2
Chris Gayle1423112.21622000
20.4 to AJ Strauss, got him! A wicket out of nowhere from Gayle. Down the leg side and Strauss went for a sweep, rightly so, but couldn't connect and instead gloved it to Ramdin. 69/1
Sulieman Benn43814623.3918314221
113.4 to AN Cook, got him! Benn deserves that. Cook's insistence on trying to work everything to leg has cost him, and he gets a leading edge to Gayle at short mid-off. 410/4
117.5 to KP Pietersen, whoops! Pietersen wanted a big shot for his half-century, he was aiming over long-off, but Benn found a hint of turn, and a fat edge looped out to point. 419/5
Lendl Simmons1406014.28514011
138.6 to MJ Prior, a mistimed welly straight into the hands of mid-on. It was only a matter of time, and that's Lendl Simmons's maiden Test wicket, so hurrahs and applause for him. 513/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson26.358753.2812214010
4.1 to DS Smith, bang! Got him! Anderson finds his length and, with it, some inswing - both of which are too good for Smith and his concreted feet, the ball bending back to bowl him through the gate. 18/1
8.2 to CH Gayle, that's the one! Almost a carbon-copy delivery, but six inches straighter. That raps the pads, but is surely going over the top. Asoka de Silva doesn't think so, and that is a massive, if fortuitous, breakthrough. 38/2
14.6 to LMP Simmons, Anderson has three! Superb bowling from Jimmy, angled in on off stump, straightening, taking the edge, and Strauss at first slip completes a dramatic-looking catch diving away to his right and losing his glasses in the process. 68/3
62.3 to BP Nash, the full length ball does the trick, and in such unlucky circumstances! Nash gets the toe-end of the bat on an attempted drive, the ball loops agonisingly backwards into the crease, and flicks into the leg stump as Nash belatedly realises what is happening and attempts to deflect it. 205/6
84.3 to D Ramdin, that's a five-for for Anderson, bowls a good length delivery outside off and gets it to come back in slightly, Ramdin pushes forward and gets a thick outside edge to Swann at second slip. 310/10
Stuart Broad1626233.87769003
44.6 to S Chanderpaul, that extra delivery has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for England! Broad bowls the offcutter outside the off stump and has Chanderpaul fishing for it, there's a very thin edge to the keeper and de Silva agrees with the rest. 167/4
52.3 to RR Sarwan, well Broad's clearly been working to a plan here! He bangs in a superb bouncer angling on the body and Sarwan hangs his bat high to fend it off but the ball clips his glove and balloons to Bresnan at the slips. 188/5
83.2 to FH Edwards, one of the more comical dismissals in this match for sure! Edwards shapes to biff a short delivery over deep square-leg but he flays too early and the ball clips the toe of the bat and falls safely in Strauss's hands at first slip. 310/9
Graham Onions1865212.88877010
65.4 to JE Taylor, absolutely arrow-straight, Taylor plays all around it, and that is utterly plumb! Well bowled Onions, that's his first of the match, and England are right into the tail now. 216/7

James Anderson1653842.37763100
30.2 to LMP Simmons, oh, that's a horribly loose shot by Simmons, rocking back and guiding it straight to cover. Misjudged both the length and the pace of the delivery. 141/4
36.4 to JE Taylor, bowled him! A 90mph inswinger - Taylor was expecting the outswinger - and his off stump is cartwheeling out of the ground. Outstanding bowling. 163/7
40.6 to SJ Benn, bowled him with a beauty! Angling into Benn's middle stump, it shapes away to knock back the off stump. 167/8
42.5 to S Chanderpaul, comes forward to defend as the ball holds its line - and Collingwood, the stand-in wicketkeeper, takes a simple catch behind, prompting extravagant celebrations!. 168/9
Stuart Broad512104.20192000
Graeme Swann301314.33112000
12.1 to DS Smith, there it is! Swann's bunny falls again. Straight, straightening, and too straight to miss. Utterly and totally out, and is that the fifth time he's got him in Tests? I believe so. 53/1
Graham Onions604627.66197110
17.2 to RR Sarwan, shuffles across his stumps, exposes at least two of them and it's plumb, Onions lands it just outside the line of offstump and gets it to come back in with the angle, Sarwan is squared up by the lack of bounce and he's history, easy one for Asoka de Silva. 88/2
17.4 to CH Gayle, that's a double blow! Onions bangs it in short and the bounce catches Gayle by surprise, he pokes his bat out and the ball balloons off the top half of the bat and goes to Strauss who hops and takes the catch at first slip. 89/3
Tim Bresnan1424533.21686040
31.6 to BP Nash, another cheap dismissal! An inswinger on the off-stump, bending back sharply and Nash flicks it uppishly straight into square-leg's hands, and that's Bresnan's maiden Test wicket. 142/5
33.2 to D Ramdin, gone! Ramdin and West Indies cannot cope with the outswing, and he comes tentatively forward, edging it to Anderson at third slip who takes a simple catch. 146/6
43.6 to FH Edwards, got him! Goes for a big pull but top-edges it miles and miles in the air, the ball spiralling as fine-leg steadies himself to take a good catch. And England celebrate a 2-0 series-win. 176/10
