Daren Powell37911323.0516812011
24.1 to AJ Strauss, goddim! Poor shot from Strauss, spooning it to Devon Smith at backward point. He never got on top of it - perhaps beaten by the lack of pace, if anything - and guided it straight to Smith. 88/1
28.3 to OA Shah, GONE! Powell strikes again - a very fine ball indeed, angling into Shah before cutting away from the right hander who fended it at hip height to Smith. Great ball; excellent comeback from the Windians, and from Powell in particular. 103/2
Jerome Taylor24411414.759918000
63.3 to AN Cook, short, wide and gone! And that's a very deserved wicket for Taylor at last, Bravo taking a straightforward catch from Cook's cut to the covers. 219/4
Corey Collymore32511013.4314315002
44.4 to KP Pietersen, gone and Collymore strikes! The bowler had Pietersen feeling for that one, who drove on the up to Smith at extra cover, straight into the midriff and the fielder juggled it twice, before holding on. 162/3
Dwayne Bravo32810613.3114312011
106.5 to PD Collingwood, bowled him! Fantastic ball, the inswinger which bent back sharply into Collingwood - at pace, too - knocking back his off stump. Collingwood perhaps expected that one to swing away from him, as Bravo has been doing. Really fine piece of bowling. 363/5

Matthew Hoggard10.132902.85495000
Steve Harmison28211714.1711719042
113.5 to JE Taylor, very well caught indeed. A slash to a half volley outside off which is expertly caught by Hodgson, the sub, diving forward at backward point and taking it inches from the ground. 424/9
Liam Plunkett30710723.5613714040
12.2 to CH Gayle, yorker, looping in, knocking back off stump and nudging middle, Gayle played all round that one. 38/1
96.5 to D Ramdin, edged and gone! A bonus wicket for England late on, here. Great catch by the ever-reliable Collingwood at second slip, good delivery for Plunkett, a little bit of movement away and he's squared up a treat. 362/7
Paul Collingwood11.523412.87565001
71.6 to DJ Bravo, Bravo's fallen in the trap, hooking to deep midwicket! And that's Collingwood's second Test wicket - and a catch for Cook, who nearly spoiled the broth, only just holding on as it was souped towards him. 279/6
Monty Panesar36.1312963.5615717100
26.1 to DS Smith, bowled him! What a brilliant delivery. Smith completely missed it, expecting it to turn more than it did; a tentative forward defence and he's bowled. 83/2
40.2 to RR Sarwan, straight again and that's a great delivery, with the wicket a just reward. That came on with the arm, nipped in, and that would have taken off-and-middle halfway up as it raps Sarwan. playing forward, on the front pad. 151/3
44.3 to D Ganga, on middle-and-off, he comes forward but rapped on the pads - a big shout from Monty, was it pad first? Yes it was. The finger goes up, the umpire's Asad Rauf and that's out. 165/4
52.2 to RS Morton, and he's got another one! Fabulous bowling from Panesar here, rapping Morton on the pads who planted his foot down the pitch but hid the bat behind the pad. And yet again Rauf raises his finger. 187/5
106.4 to S Chanderpaul, Panesar rips one out of the rough on a length, Chanderpaul completely deceived, it hits him on the back leg and a loud appeal was only ever going to be given out. That was about as plumb as you can get. 387/8
116.1 to CD Collymore, and there's Panesar's sixth, trapping him lbw - his fifth lbw of the innings as Collymore pads it away, the bat several inches away from the pad (and ball) and that's absolutely plumb. 437/10

Daren Powell904404.88357000
Corey Collymore1515833.86637002
13.5 to AJ Strauss, super line, on target forcing Strauss to play ... he shapes to drive but the ball moves away from him a fraction and the edge is well caught low down by Morton at second slip. 35/1
15.4 to OA Shah, Shah tried to work it round the corner, the ball seemed to come off glove and then thigh and loop to Ramdin down the leg side. Loud appeals and eventually Koertzen starts cranking his arm into action. 51/2
43.4 to AN Cook, a peach ... good line and length, a little movement away off the seam and that's enough to find the outside edge and give the keeper a straightforward catch. 139/3
Chris Gayle20.546633.16740011
62.1 to KP Pietersen, reverse sweep ... well, more of a reverse hoick over midwicket ... anyhow, he misses it and Pietersen starts walking before the finger goes up. 264/6
62.4 to LE Plunkett, twinkle toes dances down the pitch to a ball lobbed up outside leg stump, he misses it by some way and doesn't even try to get back as Ramdin flicks off a bail. 264/7
64.5 to MJ Prior, swung to leg but he gets a top edge and is caught by Bravo running in from short third man ... he was almost in the slips by the time he got to the ball which went quite some way up in the air. 271/8
Dwayne Bravo1829125.05669202
59.2 to PD Collingwood, and he's got him at last. Another hook which he times quite well, but doesn't place it and Morton swallows an easy chance at fine-leg. 241/4
61.1 to IR Bell, short, wide, Bell uppercuts down to third man. A hopeless stroke and it lands in Ganga's lap at third man. 248/5
