Ryan Sidebottom29108853.0313712100
0.1 to D Ganga, gone! First baller! Sidebottom looked to swing it in to the right-handed Ganga who flicks the ball straight to Cook at short leg who pouches a good catch. 0/1
8.4 to DS Smith, ooh and again he flashes at this, high over the slips but that could have gone anywhere. 34/3
63.4 to MN Samuels, Samuels thought it was going to go across him, but he exposed his leg stump and Sidebottom bowls him around his legs. 199/6
69.4 to D Ramdin, what a fine piece of bowling that is and a superb catch from Collingwood at second slip. Angled across him, the ball then cut back a touch to Ramdin who tried to punch it off the back foot but could only edge it to Collingwood who took it in front of his face. 219/7
73.5 to FH Edwards, bowled him! Edwards was back in his crease, trying to push it off the back foot but the inswing crept past his bat and knocked out his off stump. 229/9
Matthew Hoggard2685822.231267000
7.3 to CH Gayle, pitches just outside off, nips in towards middle and traps Gayle, who was going for the heave over midwicket, plumb on the back leg. 32/2
45.6 to DJ Bravo, and the pressure gets to him! A touch shorter from Hoggard, Bravo tries to pull it extravagantly but drags it onto his stumps. 141/5
Steve Harmison2547823.1211913000
16.6 to RS Morton, but Harmison has got his hat on, as Morton drives this meekly to Sidebottom at mid-off. A very tame dismissal indeed, and Morton glares warily at the pitch as though "stopped" on him. But he only has himself to blame. 55/4
70.2 to DBL Powell, good grief. What a dreadful shot that is. A touch wider of the off stump and Powell tries to pull it, but skies it to Prior behind the stumps who steadies himself to take a comfortable catch. 220/8
Monty Panesar13.123412.58601100
97.1 to CD Collymore, on off-and-middle and would have hit middle two-thirds the way up. 287/10

Fidel Edwards23111254.86100150016
6.4 to AN Cook, oh what a soft dismissal. On his pads, Cook flicks at it but can't connect properly and gets a thin edge. Ramdin dives to his right to take a very fine, low catch. 37/1
31.4 to MP Vaughan, Vaughan has gone this time - prodding away from his body, and that's a good catch snapped up by the reliable Bravo at second slip. 110/2
33.6 to KP Pietersen, tempting short ball outside off, Pietersen goes to pull to midwicket and instead gets an under edge which flies straight through to Ramdin. 121/4
37.1 to AJ Strauss, there's the line and there's the edge! Strauss was uncertain in Edwards' last over, and he hadn't settled this time around either. The perfect line and high-kicking length to the left-hander, a thin graze through to Ramdin, and Edwards is off on his windscreen-wiper celebration. A big breaklthrough!. 133/5
85.3 to MJ Prior, Prior looks to pull a shorter ball and Devon Smith, running in from deep square leg, takes a good catch a foot or so off the ground. 334/7
Daren Powell3268932.7814813010
47.2 to IR Bell, full, just outside off stump, Bell drives, gets a thick edge and the ball flies straight into gully's midriff. 165/6
94.1 to SJ Harmison, Two in two! A big, big heave-ho from Harmison, but he got more height than distance and Ganga at extra cover circled underneath the ball and gobbled a simple chance. 369/9
99.6 to MS Panesar, and that's the end of that. Back of a length, Panesar goes back to defend, and loses his bails via an inside-edge. 400/10
Corey Collymore29511624.0013310166
32.3 to MJ Hoggard, pitched up, and Hoggard will be disappointed to have prodded away from his body, chasing the drive. 119/3
93.6 to PD Collingwood, That's the end of that! Probably beaten by boredom and over-confidence as much as anything else. Pitched up, tempted into a wild swing, and a thin deflection takes out off stump. 369/8

Ryan Sidebottom1544002.66715000
Matthew Hoggard1142832.54522010
1.5 to DS Smith, full inswinger to the left hander, pitches middle, Smith plays round it, and the ball would have hit middle two-thirds of the way up. An easy decision for Billy Bowden, and the tactical switch of openers hasn't worked. 7/1
5.3 to D Ganga, loose drive, feeling for the outswinger, and Prior holds an oh-so-obvious edge at knee height to his right. 15/2
23.4 to CH Gayle, the breakthrough, Hoggard persists with his line outside off, Gayle drives and edges, a jubilant Prior doesn't have to move to take the catch. 94/4
Steve Harmison2029224.608115013
54.2 to DBL Powell, now, that is just brainless batting. A repeat performance of his first-innings dismissal, Powell has a loose uppish waft outside off stump, gets right underneath the shot, and dollies the simplest chance to Vaughan walking in from short mid-off. Another one bites the dust, and England scent a 3-0 rout. 188/8
56.3 to FH Edwards, and that was even better! Full and straight, and utterly unstoppable. The off stump does a cartwheel, middle is knocked askew as well, and England are inching ever closer to the knockout. 194/9
Monty Panesar1624652.87725000
8.4 to RS Morton, Morton goes back and shapes to hammer it through the covers, gets a big bottom edge and the ball crashes into his off stump. He stands for a moment looking at his bat almost as if he has been betrayed by an old friend and then turns and heads off. 38/3
43.3 to DJ Bravo, Bravo tries to repeat the shot but the ball was closer to him and instead of going high and far it just went high, Sidebottom at mid-off had a long time to wait for gravity to take effect but he made no mistake. 162/5
47.4 to MN Samuels, undone by spin and bounce, Samuels pushes forward, the ball takes the edge high on the bat and Collingwood at first slip holds it high to his right. 169/6
51.1 to D Ramdin, dipping, spinning, Ramdin, out of his depth against Harmison in the last over, is utterly bemused by one from Monty that pitches on middle and hits off. 175/7
63.6 to S Chanderpaul, an attempted action replay, but this one bites more than the last and the timbers are rattled! Chanderpaul's magnificent resistance is over. Since his last dismissal, he's been unbeaten for five minutes shy of 18 hours. Wonderful effort. 222/10

3.3 to AN Cook, on a good length just outside off; Cook's squared up and he sends a thick edge straight to Bravo at second slip. 16/1
7.1 to AJ Strauss, super delivery, late inswinger pitches on off and goes right through Strauss, pushing his off stump sharply back. 29/2
Marlon Samuels401203.00130000

19.3 to KP Pietersen, a soft dismissal - the one that went on with the arm and Pietersen plays late, popping a fairly awkward catch, low, to first slip. 105/3
