2.2 to AJ Strauss, pitched up, Strauss plays round a straight ball and that looks out even before the umpire starts lifting his finger. 13/1
52.3 to PD Collingwood, an inswinger, Collingwood shuffles across his stumps but is rapped straight in front. A raucous appeal...and he's given him. The ball did look to be shaping down the leg side, but replays indicate leg stump would've been flattened. 166/5
20.129434.6693130112
83.5 to LE Plunkett, super one-two ... the bouncer softened him up and Edwards follows with a good-length delivery which swings as well, Plunkett, heading ever-so-slightly towards square leg, is beaten all ends up and the ball hits the middle stump two-thirds up and sends it flying. 285/7
93.2 to SJ Harmison, yet another bouncer and this time it works, Harmison tries to get out of the way but it hits his gloves and gives Ramdin a simple catch. Bowden's decision is made easier as Harmison starts walking before hesitating and looking at the umpire. 324/8
105.1 to RJ Sidebottom, gone. Full and swinging into Sidebottom who was simply beaten for pace - his leg-stump flattened. 370/10
2556032.401226013
31.6 to MP Vaughan, great ball, nipping back in at Vaughan from just outside off. Full-length delivery, Vaughan plays down the wrong line and the ball takes off-and-middle stumps. 117/2
37.6 to KP Pietersen, attempted bouncer - and gets the reward! Pietersen's eyes lit up, and couldn't control the hook which slips down deep square leg's throat, Bravo holding on without alarm. 132/3
100.4 to IR Bell, a superb delivery, another leg-cutter from Collymore and again he finds nasty bounce. Bell was drawn into a defensive poke on the back foot, but it jagged away markedly off the seam to take the edge and Ramdin snaffles an easy chance. 338/9
2349414.0810216020
77.4 to MJ Prior, dug in for a third time in four, Prior goes to pull but doesn't get on top of it and the ball arcs right into the hands of Morton 10 or 15 yards inside the midwicket boundary. That was shorter and wider than the other ones and of them all, that was the one to leave .... 264/6
1773211.88875000
40.3 to AN Cook, oh, cut down behind point - did it carry to Bravo? Yes, it did, just. Sammy has his first Test wicket. 132/4

45.3 to DJ Bravo, angling across Bravo who remained on the back foot. He was drawn into a defensive prod, edging the ball to Prior's right who dived and took an excellent catch. 216/5
49.3 to D Ramdin, a bouncer tempting the hook. The pace, rather than the bounce, did him. The trap worked. Pietersen, at square leg, was smiling even before he'd caught that. 224/6
51.5 to S Chanderpaul, gone. Poked up to cover and snapped up by Pietersen, easily. 225/9
1125324.81466041
1.4 to D Ganga, got him. A sharp incutter rapping him on the pads, and that's absolutely plumb. 17/1
22.5 to RS Morton, Harmison strikes, the ball jags back at Morton's throat and he can only fend the ball to Strauss's midriff at first slip. 116/3
1204313.58526011
9.3 to CH Gayle, full, and Gayle slices right to gully, for a good, low catch. 49/2
16.455043.00774200
31.1 to DS Smith, a superb catch from Ian Bell at silly point. An inside edge from Smith onto his heel, the ball ballooning just in front of Bell who dived forward with both hands and took it grass height. 157/4
50.2 to DJG Sammy, popped up, hit the glove, and well snapped up at first slip, taking it as he fell, he couldn't have seen the deflection as it came from across the keeper. 225/7
50.4 to JE Taylor, got him! Great bowling from Panesar again, tempting the steer to second slip. Well held. 225/8
52.4 to CD Collymore, and it's all over - the batsman going for the drive and edging to first slip, where it's held without trouble. 229/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
1205414.50476008
0.3 to AJ Strauss, fantastic full inswinger from Edwards, low and straight, and trapped Strauss back in the crease. Plumb as you like and Strauss's bad run continues. 1/1
1004204.20416000
722403.42321021
21.326673.06988002
22.3 to MP Vaughan, what a catch! Nicely timed by Vaughan, a straight drive hit hard, but just in the air, allowing Sammy to take a great reaction catch on follow through - grasping with his right hand. 99/2
75.1 to IR Bell, a cracking delivery from Sammy, outside off stump, held its line and Bell had a nibble, getting an edge through to Ramdin.. 272/5
75.2 to MJ Prior, gone first ball, very similar delivery to the Bell dismissal, a little wider outside off stump and Prior pushes forward and gets a very thin edge through to Ramdin. Prior's first failure in Test cricket. 272/6
75.5 to LE Plunkett, and another...Plunkett plays forward and gets an inside edge onto his pad which loops into the gully area where Dwayne Bravo dives forward and to his right, pulling off an outstanding catch. Three in an over for Sammy. 272/7
83.2 to SJ Harmison, what a catch! Harmison tries to cover-drive a ball that's just too full; the result is an edge to gully where Morton takes a very tidy catch, low. 300/8
85.1 to PD Collingwood, on off, clipped to Ganga at midwicket who holds the catch easily. 313/9
85.3 to MS Panesar, and he has another! Sammy is unstoppable, tempting Panesar to poke to first slip. 313/10
1114303.90435000
821411.75360000
59.1 to KP Pietersen, hit wicket, what an unusual dismissal. A sharp bouncer took Pietersen totally by surprise - but not a quick ball - knocking his helmet off which then fell on to his stumps. Pietersen didn't connect with the sticks themselves, but as the bails were dislodged by the lid, he's gone. 221/3
1605713.56592100
72.2 to AN Cook, well, whatever next, Gayle has struck...coming in from round the wicket, certainly no spin, and Aleem Dar rules that it would have hit. It was in-line with off stump, although there is some doubt about the height. Ends a solid century from Cook, and his career-best remains at 127. 265/4

1.3 to D Ganga, and he strikes with a straight one! Very similar to the first innings, Ganga trapped in front, unable to deal with the one which came back in. 4/1
13.4 to CH Gayle, gone! Superbly bowled from Harmison, pitching it up on off stump to Gayle who came tentatively forward. It took a thick outside edge, flying to Collingwood at second slip who took a fine catch low to his left. 35/2
129.2 to JE Taylor, super delivery, short and right at Taylor's throat, he can only fend the ball off the glove right into the hands of Cook at short leg. That's Cook's third catch of the innings and England celebrate like it's 2005. 385/8
129.5 to FH Edwards, another ripper from Harmison at Edwards' chest, he is turned square as he tries to get into line and the ball loops off the edge to gully where Bell runs to his left to hold the catch. 385/9
51.51313762.6424216000
32.6 to DS Smith, intelligent bowling from Panesar gets the breakthrough, pitching outside off, brushing the glove and popping to Cook at silly mid-on, who takes a relatively simple catch. 88/3
58.1 to RS Morton, a misjudgement there from Morton, shouldering arms as the ball pitches on off and crashes into his front pad, in line with off. 161/4
78.6 to DJ Bravo, gone this time! On leg stump, Bravo lunged forward and gloved it straight into the waiting hands of Alastair Cook at short-leg. 249/5
100.3 to D Ramdin, the breakthrough ... Ramdin undone by extra bounce and a degree of turn, he goes back but can only edge the ball from high on the bat to Paul Collingwood at first slip who takes a sharp catch to his left at face height. 311/6
114.4 to DJG Sammy, what a catch - a straight drive, that was travelling, and Panesar took a great reaction return at his right shoulder. 348/7
132.5 to CD Collymore, and that's two balls too many ... full, clipped off bat and pad and Bell holds on to a brilliant one-handed reaction catch to his right at short leg. Collymore stands his ground, the umpires confer and refer ... the PA announces and England celebrate prematurely. England start high-fiving and hugging before the announcement as they get the thumbs-up from the dressing-room. It takes two minutes and endless replays before the third umpire gives his decision ... it's out. 394/10
