Commentary (England innings)

So! 155 is the lead for the Brits. Could prove enough in these seaming conditions. West Indies need to take it session by session, or even hour by hour. Stay tuned for their reply.

Excellent batting display by England but it has been West Indies' day. Started by Kemar Roach, getting the wicket of Strauss but the debutant Gabriel impressed one and all. The duo shared 6 wickets among themselves. No complaints from England's batting order. Everyone apart from Tim Bresnan came in and got starts, revolving around Strauss and Bell. The tail did well too, wagging a lot.

113.3 S Gabriel to Bell, OUT! That is a very good catch! Short outside off, Bell goes for the pull and hits it pretty well too! But there is a man placed in the deep at mid-wicket specifially for that shot. Kieran Powell comes running in and takes a well-judged catch, diving forward. Bell departs for 61, ENGLAND ALL OUT FOR 398! 398/10

111.6 S Gabriel to Swann, OUT! Bowled! That's where you bowl to Graeme Swann! Full and straight, attacking the stumps, 85.2 mph, Swann looks to flick across the line but misses and the stumps are rattled. Gabriel is pretty happy but not a bad knock from Swann. He departs for a quickfire 30 and the 55-run stand is broken. ENGLAND 397/9! Not a bad debut by Gabriel, second wicket for him. 397/9

Graeme Swann walks in at number 10, replacing Broad. The game is moving on at a pace. England lead by 99 runs with 2 wickets in hand.

Good length delivery on middle, 83 mph, comes back in a touch, Broad goes back in his crease to defend but misses. The ball hits his pads and just clips the off bail on its way to the keeper.

Fidel Edwards to begin the proceedings after Lunch. 22-1-65-0 so far. Ian Bell to face. All set! Here we go!

Welcome back. 7 wickets down for England. But their tail is one which offers resistance more often than not. In their home series against Australia, West Indies faced a similar problem against the Aussie tail. Can they polish off the British lower order quickly? The action is right here.....

Day 3, session 2......

The lead for England is now 98 and one has to say, they are in good shape. Bell is looking in fine touch on 38 and make no mistake, this lower order is much more resilient as compared to that of West Indies. We could be in for some quick scoring after Lunch. Join us back at 1240 GMT (1810 IST).

A good morning then for West Indies. Bowled with more gumption and purpose and ended up picking up 4 wickets for 82 runs in 23.4 overs. The wicket of Andrew Strauss spurred them on and the seamers enjoyed the conditions. The over-rate has been a ridiculous 11.4 and the match referee would be having a look at that. Roach has led from the front, with 3 scalps.

103.6 D Sammy to Broad, Full on middle, Broad looks to flick it away but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads which just lobs wide of the bowler charging in. LUNCH ON DAY 3! 341/7

Gabriel doing a bit of a stretching. Hopefully it is nothing serious. He is only 24!

102.3 S Gabriel to Ian Bell, Short outside off, helped away to deep mid-wicket for a single. 338/7

Nick Knight feels that the success for West Indies this morning has been purely because of seam movement. He says that there was nothing yesterday and has no idea why.

100.2 S Gabriel to Bell, Full outside off this time, 84.6 mph, Bell is beaten on the drive. Ramdin puts in a mild appeal for the catch but it is turned down. Gabriel is not even the least bit interested. Replays show the bat hitting the ground. 333/7

100.1 S Gabriel to Bell, Too much leg-sidish, full as well, 86.2 mph, Bell flicks it uppishly towards fine leg. By the time Roach can get to the ball, two runs have been taken. The stand has now reached double figures. The lead is worth 90. 333/7

97.4 D Sammy to Bresnan, OUT! Caught behind! Perfect delivery from Sammy, landing the ball in the corridor of uncertainty outside off, on length, 73.2 mph, Bresnan is forced to play at it and the ball moves away ever so slightly to take a thin outside edge. Ramdin does the rest. Bresnan departs for a duck, ENGLAND 323/7! Second wicket for Sammy. 323/7

96.1 S Gabriel to Prior, OUT! Bowled! That has gone right through! First Test scalp for the debutant! Good length delivery outside off, 86.6 mph, nips back in sharply, Prior comes forward to flick but misses due to the late movement and the ball cannons into the stumps. That's not the first time he has been dismissed in this fashion. 25 percent of his dismissals have been bowled. Too high. Prior departs for 19, ENGLAND 320/6! 320/6

Interesting thought from Michael Atherton on air. He opines that in his time, players thought too much about the game and forgot the basic stuff - See the ball, hit the ball. He feels that now, with the advent of T20, modern era players are much more consistent and not under too much pressure.

95.6 D Sammy to Bell, The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump. 320/5

95.5 D Sammy to Prior, Flicks it away for a single. 320/5

95.4 D Sammy to Bell, Full on middle, played through mid-wicket for a run. 319/5

95.3 D Sammy to Bell, Outside off, left alone. 318/5

Nick Knight on air says that Prior stays absolutely still before facing the ball. He finds that pretty unusual, especially in today's day and age.

95.2 D Sammy to Prior, Oohhh..he had no idea about that one, Prior. Full outside off, Prior looked to push it through the off side but got a thick inside edge to square leg. Turned a complete 360 degrees to see where the ball went. A single taken. 318/5

95.1 D Sammy to Prior, Full on middle, driven to mid on. 317/5

94.3 S Gabriel to Bell, Another short ball, Bell keeps it down nicely. 317/5

Matt Prior walks in at number 7, replacing Bairstow. England have now lost 2/26! They lead by 49 runs.

89.5 K Roach to Bairstow, OUT! LBW! Terrific delivery to end the young lad's knock. Full outside off, 85.9 mph, swings back in a mile, Bairstow looks to defend but misses and is rapped up on the pads. Roach appeals and umpire Marais Erasmus raises his finger. Bairstow does not look too disappointed and asks Bell about the review who advises him not to take it. Hawk Eye shows the ball to be hitting leg stump. Bairstow departs for a fluent 16, ENGLAND 292/5! 292/5

89.4 K Roach to Bairstow, FOUR! Sublime! Wow. This young lad is sure making an impact out here. Full outside off, Bairstow drives it beautifully through the covers and the ball races away. 292/4

88.1 F Edwards to Bairstow, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the backfoot. 285/4

87.6 K Roach to Bairstow, Ooopss....that is some way of playing a length ball! Bairstow probably expected a short delivery and ducked pre-maturely. However, the ball barely bounced and he ended up paddling it to fine leg for a single! 8 from the over. Bairstow into double figures now. 285/4

Well, Bairtsow is not going to forget his first match. He has faced just 16 balls and is getting his bat taped. Looks like the previous ball just dented this bat a touch. A couple of bats have been brought out and Bairstow changes the current one.

87.1 K Roach to Bell, Good length delivery outside off, left alone. 277/4

86.6 F Edwards to Bairstow, Played to the point region by the batsman. 277/4

Interesting. We just got to know what Geoffrey Boycott told John Bairstow when he handed him his first Test cap - "You're at base camp. Now go and climb the mountain."

86.5 F Edwards to Bairstow, Outside off, left alone. 277/4

86.4 F Edwards to Bairstow, FOUR! On the pads, Bairstow just flicks it through mid-wicket and Gabriel from long leg gives up the chase. The partnership moves to 11. 277/4

85.1 K Roach to Bell, Full outside off, driven towards mid on. 271/4

84.2 F Edwards to Bell, The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery. 270/4

84.1 F Edwards to Bell, FOUR RUNNING RUNS! Not for the first time have we seen this in this Test. The batsmen running all four. Good length delivery on middle, Bell flicks it through mid-wicket. Either the timing is not great or the ground is slightly bigger and the ball stops in front of the ropes. By the time the fielder gets to it, the batsmen cross each other four times. 270/4

83.6 K Roach to Bairstow, Oohhh....good length delivery outside off, Bairstow feels for it and is beaten. 266/4

Debutant Jonathan Bairstow walks in at number 6, replacing Strauss. England lead by 23 runs with 6 wickets in hand.

83.3 K Roach to Strauss, OUT! The decision is overturned! Bizarre scenes out there. Both, the batsman and the bowler, look bemused. Neither thought that was out! Good length delivery on middle, nips back in, Strauss looks to defend but is beaten. There is a noise as the ball goes past and Ramdin collects and appeals. Roach joins him but umpire Marais Erasmus shakes his head. The bowler is not interested in reviewing it but Sammy, after a long consultation with his keeper, asks for the review! And....Hot Spot detects an inside edge! Strauss has got to go! He does not look too happy but starts to walk back. Not that he has got any other option. Strauss departs for 122 and once again, he does not add much to his overnight score! The jinx remains! England 266/4! 266/4

Huge appeal for caught behind against Strauss! Not given. Sammy has asked for the review.

83.2 K Roach to Strauss, The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through. 266/3

82.1 F Edwards to Ian Bell, Beautifully bowled but equally well played. Full outside off, 82.8 mph, swinging away, Bell adjusts late and plays it with soft hands. The ball does not carry to second slip. 264/3

Michael Holding feels that Kemar Roach does not look too excited about bowling. Holding reckons that probably he is tired. He is also surprised by the fact that Roach played the warm-up game against England Lions when he should have rested.

81.6 K Roach to A Strauss, Full and straight, driven towards mid off. 264/3

81.5 K Roach to Bell, Full outside off, Bell looks to drive but gets a thick inside edge towards mid-wicket. A single taken. 264/3

80.3 F Edwards to Strauss, Full outside off, left alone. 259/3

Fidel Edwards, who was hobbling last evening, is all set to resume the proceedings and finish off his pending over. Strauss to face. West Indies need to make the new ball count. Here we go then! All set!

WEATHER - The weather is much better today, still overcast but brighter than yesterday.

CRICKET STAT - Andrew Strauss has resumed on overnight 100 6 times before - and never added more than 6 runs.

Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play of the opening Test between England and West Indies at Lord's! It was all Andrew Strauss who hogged the headlines yesterday, with even the Champions Legaue final preview and hype taking a backseat. England are comfortable right now, with a lead of 16, but if the Windies can restrict them to around 350, we could have a game on, else the visitors will be way behind. Hopefully we get a good day's play! Sit back and enjoy the proceedings!

Day 3, session 1.....

A long, toiling day for the bowlers, with the debutant Gabriel being the pick. West Indies need to do better tomorrow than what they did today, else they could be well behind in this Test match. Join us at 1000 GMT (1530 IST) for the third day's play. Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

The entire Lord's crowd stands up in applause for the English skipper Andrew Strauss, for an unbeaten 121. A good day's play for him and has led from the front to see his side in front, with a lead of 16. Good contribution from Trott as well.

Well, a bit of drama here. Edwards is down with a niggle and in the meanwhile, the umpires get together for a chat. They are not too happy with the light and the players have been taken off. STUMPS ON DAY 2.

24.2 D Sammy to Trott, NOT OUT. A very close call. Full on middle, Trott gets across to flick but misses and is hit right in front.

LBW appeal against Trott! Not given. West Indies have gone for the review.

24.1 D Sammy to Trott, Good length delivery outside off, left alone. 81/1

It has gone very dark and the floodlights are on. But the clouds have drifted away.

Day 2, session 2......

England's session. They did not waste a second this morning and took the last West Indian wicket on the very first ball and have now backed it up with a strong batting display, led from the front by the skipper. Cook will be rueing his missed opportunity as this looks a pretty flat deck. The West Indies were not bad with the ball but they are not swinging it as much as their counterparts did. The deficit is down to 163 and should come to double figures by the end of the second session. However, the threat of rain looms.....join us back at 1240 GMT (1810 IST).

22.6 F Edwards to Trott, Another leave outside off to end the session. LUNCH ON DAY 2! 80/1

22.4 F Edwards to Strauss, Fuller delivery outside off, pushed through the covers for a single. 80/1

Michael Holding is furious on air. He simply cannot understand the fact that Fidel Edwards, who is half fit, is playing this match. He does not have a clear picture of Jerome Taylor's injury and fitness and is furious with the Windies administration. Poor David Lloyd sitting next to him is shocked to see the anger. Another topic comes up - Dwayne Bravo's availability or unavailability? Gosh...we can talk/write about this for ages....

13.5 K Roach to A Strauss, FOUR! Pummeled! Little bit of width outside off, short in length, 85.3 mph, not too much bounce, Strauss flashes hard and gets it past gully to third man. Nicely played.

12.2 S Gabriel to Strauss, Good length delivery on leg stump, 87.1 mph, Strauss looks to tuck it away to the leg side but gets a bit of a leading edge to cover. The bowling has been decent enough but the fielding has not been impressive. 47/1

Good length delivery outside off, 86.6 mph, Cook looks to play his favourite shot, the cut, but is too close to the ball. Ends up getting a thick inside edge onto his stumps. Both, batsman and bowler just stand over there. Cook, in frustration while Roach, in a manner probably indicating that he didn't expect that wicket. Cook departs for 26, ENGLAND 47/1! 47/1

11.4 K Roach to Cook, Yorker outside off, Cook digs it out. 47/0

Meanwhile, at the other end, poor Strauss had to dive full length into his crease in case the bowler got a deflection back on to the stumps at the non-striker's end! 46/0

10.6 S Gabriel to Strauss, Full outside off, driven straight to mid off. 46/0

7.4 K Roach to Cook, FOUR! That is a good delivery but is equally well played! Landed on a length outside off, 87.9 mph, Cook just sits on it, does not go after it too hard, lets the ball hit the bat and in the end, guides it past a diving third slip to third man! 36/0

7.3 K Roach to Cook, FOUR BYES! Short outside off, 85.3 mph, Cook goes for the pull but the ball swings back in a long way and beats the bat as well as the diving keeper to his right, into the fine leg fence. Very very difficult to stop those. 32/0

Commentary (West Indies innings)

Interesting thought from Michael Atherton on air. He opines that in his time, players thought too much about the game and forgot the basic stuff - See the ball, hit the ball. He feels that now, with the advent of T20, modern era players are much more consistent and not under too much pressure.

95.2 D Sammy to Prior, Oohhh..he had no idea about that one, Prior. Full outside off, Prior looked to push it through the off side but got a thick inside edge to square leg. Turned a complete 360 degrees to see where the ball went. A single taken. 318/5

Full outside off, 85.9 mph, swings back in a mile, Bairstow looks to defend but misses and is rapped up on the pads. Roach appeals and umpire Marais Erasmus raises his finger.

Bairstow departs for a fluent 16, ENGLAND 292/5! 292/5

Well that didn't take very long now did it? Sigh.......all the excitement lasted just one delivery. Broad not wasting any time and he will be on a hat-trick on the first ball he bowls in the second innings. Stuart Broad is now only the fourth English bowler behind Sir Ian Botham, Dominic Cork and Bailey to take 7 wickets in an innings at Lord's. Perfect start for England to the day, achieving what they set out to do. Now, time for some good strong batting display. However, the conditions are favourable for bowling and we could be in for a good day if the Windies bowl the way they did against Australia at home. Stay tuned......

89.5 S Broad to S Gabriel, OUT! Gone first ball! Forget the century. Chanderpaul does not even get to face a ball. Gabriel has come and gone. Good length delivery pitched in the corridor of uncertainty outside off, Gabriel is forced to play at it and gets a thick outside edge. It flies straight to Swann at second slip and that is the end of the innings. BEST TEST FIGURES FOR STUART BROAD AS WEST INDIES ARE BOWLED OUT FOR 243! 243/10

The players are back out in the middle. Debutant Shannon Gabriel to face the remaining two balls of the over. Can he see Chanderpaul get to a hundred? Can Broad get his best Test figures? Or will both be possible? Here we go then....

WEATHER - A grey day awaits us. Plenty of overcast skies around. Michael Vaughan tweets, "Feels like a good day to be bowling at Lords today... Should be plenty of movement through the air..."

Hello and a warm welcome to the second day's play of the first Test between England and West Indies at Lord's! The hosts have the upper hand after picking up 9 wickets for just 243 runs and considering that traditionally, the pitch gets better to bat on over here as the days progress, today should be a good day for batting. England will aim to take this last wicket as quickly as possible and then bat for a long, long time. As far as West Indies are concerned, they will hope to see Chanderpaul reach the triple-figure mark and bat for as long as possible. Sit back and enjoy as the action unfolds!

Day 2, session 1......

That's it from us then! England will look to come out tomorrow morning and finish this off early. And then, get set for a nice batting display. Can Chanderpaul get to his century and guide the Windies to as close to 300 as possible? Join us at 1000 GMT (1530 IST) for all the second day's action! Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

It all looked well till half an hour after Tea but the wicket of Samuels opened the flood-gates and West Indies find themselves with their backs to the wall. As usual, Chanderpaul has been the lone man standing, with an unbeaten 87. For England, Broad has led the way with a 6-wicket haul.

A fine day for England. They inserted West Indies in, took a couple of quick wickets before Barath and Bravo steadied things till Lunch. But the visitors lost their way after Lunch before Chanderpaul and Samuels counter-attacked.

89.4 S Broad to Edwards, OUT! Caught behind! A wicket to end the day for Broad! Full outside off, Edwards pushes at it but the ball swings away a bit late, takes the outside edge and goes behind where Prior takes it one-handed in front of Strauss at first slip, diving to his right. Edwards hits the ground with his bat in frustration. He departs for 2, WEST INDIES 243/9! And with that, it is STUMPS ON DAY 1! 243/9

89.3 S Broad to Edwards, Full on middle, driven towards mid on. He comes half way down the track for the single but Chanderpaul sends him back. 243/8

87.6 K Roach to Bairstow, Ooopss....that is some way of playing a length ball! Bairstow probably expected a short delivery and ducked pre-maturely. However, the ball barely bounced and he ended up paddling it to fine leg for a single! 8 from the over. Bairstow into double figures now. 285/4

Well, Bairtsow is not going to forget his first match. He has faced just 16 balls and is getting his bat taped. Looks like the previous ball just dented this bat a touch. A couple of bats have been brought out and Bairstow changes the current one.

87.5 K Roach to Bairstow, Yorker outside off, Bairstow digs it out back to the bowler. 284/4

87.5 K Roach to Bairstow, NO BALL. Oversteps again and bowls it outside off, left alone. 284/4

CRICKET STAT - Broad now joins an illustrious club of people on both honours boards at Lord's! By scoring a century or taking five wickets in an innings, a player ensures that his name is added to one of the famous Honours Boards in the Pavilion. Great all-rounders - 'Gubby' Allen, Ian Botham (now Sir Ian) and Andrew Flintoff - have the distinction of appearing on both of these boards. The visitors' dressing room board shows the achievements of remarkable batsmen like Victor Trumper and Sir Viv Richards, great bowlers including Bishen Bedi and Waqar Younis and equally distinguished all-rounders - such as Keith Miller and Garry Sobers.

87.5 S Broad to S Chanderpaul, FOUR! Plundered! Short outside off, Chanderpaul pulls it wide of mid on for a boundary! 238/8

86.5 F Edwards to Bairstow, Outside off, left alone. 277/4

86.4 F Edwards to Bairstow, FOUR! On the pads, Bairstow just flicks it through mid-wicket and Gabriel from long leg gives up the chase. The partnership moves to 11. 277/4

84.2 F Edwards to Bell, The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery. 270/4

84.1 F Edwards to Bell, FOUR RUNNING RUNS! Not for the first time have we seen this in this Test. The batsmen running all four. Good length delivery on middle, Bell flicks it through mid-wicket. Either the timing is not great or the ground is slightly bigger and the ball stops in front of the ropes. By the time the fielder gets to it, the batsmen cross each other four times. 270/4

84.6 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, Gone! Is it? No. Good length delivery outside off, Chanderpaul comes forward to defend but misses and the ball goes off his back pad to the keeper. England started to celebrate thinking that it is an edge but umpire Erasmus shook his head. Great decision. 231/7

Debutant Jonathan Bairstow walks in at number 6, replacing Strauss. England lead by 23 runs with 6 wickets in hand.

83.3 K Roach to Strauss, OUT! The decision is overturned! Bizarre scenes out there. Both, the batsman and the bowler, look bemused. Neither thought that was out! Good length delivery on middle, nips back in, Strauss looks to defend but is beaten. There is a noise as the ball goes past and Ramdin collects and appeals. Roach joins him but umpire Marais Erasmus shakes his head. The bowler is not interested in reviewing it but Sammy, after a long consultation with his keeper, asks for the review! And....Hot Spot detects an inside edge! Strauss has got to go! He does not look too happy but starts to walk back. Not that he has got any other option. Strauss departs for 122 and once again, he does not add much to his overnight score! The jinx remains! England 266/4! 266/4

Huge appeal for caught behind against Strauss! Not given. Sammy has asked for the review.

83.2 K Roach to Strauss, The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through. 266/3

83.1 K Roach to Strauss, Outside off, left alone. 266/3

There is a bit of a gap in between the sight screens. Chanderpaul is asking it to be closed.

"i think we focus far too much on chanderpaul's style. that is most unfair. he is a player of great substance and we must respect that" tweets Harsha Bhogle. Absolutely. Who cares about style when your batsman gives you consistent scores?

Michael Holding feels that Kemar Roach does not look too excited about bowling. Holding reckons that probably he is tired. He is also surprised by the fact that Roach played the warm-up game against England Lions when he should have rested.

Kemar Roach walks in next.

81.6 S Broad to Sammy, OUT! Caught! Got in a horrible tangle there, Sammy. Full on middle, Sammy looks to flick it away but plays all around it. The ball seams away a touch and goes off the leading edge, almost off the back of the bat towards gully where Bresnan takes a good sharp catch. Sammy departs for 17, WEST INDIES 219/7! 219/7

WEATHER - The weather is much better today, still overcast but brighter than yesterday.

CRICKET STAT - Andrew Strauss has resumed on overnight 100 6 times before - and never added more than 6 runs.

Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play of the opening Test between England and West Indies at Lord's! It was all Andrew Strauss who hogged the headlines yesterday, with even the Champions Legaue final preview and hype taking a backseat. England are comfortable right now, with a lead of 16, but if the Windies can restrict them to around 350, we could have a game on, else the visitors will be way behind. Hopefully we get a good day's play! Sit back and enjoy the proceedings!

Day 3, session 1.....

A long, toiling day for the bowlers, with the debutant Gabriel being the pick. West Indies need to do better tomorrow than what they did today, else they could be well behind in this Test match. Join us at 1000 GMT (1530 IST) for the third day's play. Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

The entire Lord's crowd stands up in applause for the English skipper Andrew Strauss, for an unbeaten 121. A good day's play for him and has led from the front to see his side in front, with a lead of 16. Good contribution from Trott as well.

Well, a bit of drama here. Edwards is down with a niggle and in the meanwhile, the umpires get together for a chat. They are not too happy with the light and the players have been taken off. STUMPS ON DAY 2.

80.2 F Edwards to Strauss, Exploring both sides of the pitch now. This is well outside off, giving Ramdin some keeping practice. 259/3

DRINKS BREAK. An enthralling hour. West Indies going bonkers in the first half and then Broad striking back. Twice. The visitors on the back foot and can easily get bowled out tonight. Unless, unless, Chanderpaul and Sammy create some magic out there...

70.6 K Roach to K Pietersen, Drills it to mid on who dives full length to his left and parries it to mid off who has come over to mid on to stop the ball. Confusing? Well, a single in the end. The mid off fielder came to back up the mid on fielder. 9 from the over, the deficit is 18. 225/2

WEST INDIES 187/6! 187/6

Interesting observation made by Nasser Hussain on air. He says that just before the ball which got out Samuels, Strauss put in a man at deep mid-wicket. That put a doubt in the mind of the batsman, probably expecting a short delivery. He got a fuller one and was a touch late on the drive.

69.2 S Broad to Ramdin, On the pads, flicked away for a couple through square leg. Good diving stop by Trott running across from square leg. 187/5

Denesh Ramdin walks in at number 7, replacing Samuels.

67.4 S Broad to Samuels, OUT! Caught! Samuels has got carried away and gifted his wicket. Full and wide outside off, 82.5 mph, not quite there for the drive, Samuels still goes after it and guides it straight to the debutant Bairstow at point who takes the catch. Samuels departs for 31, he is a much better player than that. The 81-run stand has been broken at last. WEST INDIES 181/5! 181/5

Stuart Broad now into the attack. 16-3-49-1 so far.

66.6 G Swann to Chanderpaul, FOUR! What is happening here? Well, Chris Gayle is exploding out there in India in a domestic league game and it looks like these guys have just come to know about that.

Short and wide outside off, Strauss cuts it fiercely behind point and gets a boundary! Relief on the face of Strauss and the entire Lord's crowd stands up and applauds. There was a huge cry of "YEAH!!!!" from Strauss once he hit that shot. Ran towards KP and embraced him in jubilation. Great scenes. 204/2

65.2 D Sammy to Strauss, Another leave outside off. 200/2

65.1 D Sammy to Strauss, Full outside off, left alone. 200/2

64.2 F Edwards to Pietersen, NO BALL. Digs in a short delivery outside off, Pietersen sways away. Replays show that Edwards had overstepped by a massive margin. Could be the last over of his spell. 196/2

64.1 F Edwards to Strauss, Full outside off, Strauss drives this uppishly but wide of the man at cover for a single. 195/2

64.6 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, Outside off, left alone. 167/4

60th Test Fifty for Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 15th against England!

64.5 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, Full on middle, driven straight down the ground past Anderson for a couple. Yet another half century for Chanderpaul. It is very rare that he has let the Windies down these days. Looks like he is in the form of his life. 167/4

63.4 D Sammy to Pietersen, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 194/2

A single taken. 157/4

Fidel Edwards is going off the field. Asad Fuddadin comes on.

We are all set for the final session of the day. 32 overs left. West Indies have done well not to collapse but the home team still well and truly on top.

Day 1, session 3......

A good session for England. Picked up 2 wickets quickly after Lunch and pegged the visitors back but this stand between Chanderpaul and Samuels has revived things a touch. The former, as usual, is the key for the Windies who would hope for a good last session and end the day probably somewhere around 220-230 with at least 4 wickets in the bank. Good economy maintained by England throughout this session. Just 63 runs in 29 overs. Join us back at 1500 GMT (2030 IST) for the final session of the day.

42.2 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, Outside off, played straight to point. 105/4

42.1 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, OUT! LBW! BUT THE DECISION HAS BEEN OVERTURNED! Full outside off, swinging back in, Chanderpaul mis-reads it and shoulders arms, getting hit on the pads. Anderson appeals and umpire Erasmus raises his finger and Chanderpaul, after a long chat with Samuels, asks for a review. Hawk Eye shows the ball to be missing off stump! A lucky reprieve there! 105/4

41.6 S Gabriel to Trott, FOUR BYES! That's a harsh call on the keeper. Rubbish delivery, miles down the leg side, swinging further, poor Ramdin dives full stretch to his left but still cannot get there. Should have been signalled as a wide. The deficit is now 108. 135/1

One good thing which Chanderpaul did there was, he got his bat just in time before Bravo could get in. "All batsmen are selfish a touch", says Mike Atherton on air.

41.6 G Swann to Samuels, Another LBW appeal, third in this over, turned down again. Flighted outside off, Samuels lunges forward to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Again, the impact is outside off. 105/4

Marlon Samuels walks in at number 6, replacing Bravo. West Indies have lost 2/14 in the last 49 balls.

39.6 Swann to Chanderpaul, OUT! Comical cricket all around and Bravo has been run out! Oh my my....poor cricket from England and even worse cricket from West Indies which could have been over-shadowed by a silly throw. A wicket in the end. Landed on middle, way too short, Chanderpaul works it towards square leg where Bell gets to the ball quickly and slides to stop the ball. Chanderpaul takes a couple of steps and on seeing that Bravo starts to run. But then, Chanderpaul stops and Bravo does not see that. Keeps on running and joins Chanderpaul at the striker's end who has come back in. The throw comes in to Prior who returns a horrible throw to Swann who has to dive to his left to stop it! Takes off the bails. Bravo is the man to depart for 29, WEST INDIES 100/4! Even if Swann had missed that, Broad was backing up at mid on, so it would have been out. Bravo's drop does not prove costly then. 100/4

39.5 G Swann to Chanderpaul, Comes forward and watchfully defends this one. 100/3

38.3 M Samuels to Strauss, Slower, on middle, 52.8 mph, Strauss comes forward to defend. 125/1

38.2 M Samuels to Strauss, Wide outside off, 63.8 mph, a bit too wide to tempt Strauss who lets it go. 125/1

38.1 M Samuels to Strauss, Fired in outside off, left alone. 125/1

Graeme Swann gets a chance for redemption. He is into the attack now. 3-0-8-0 so far. This stand is worth 14 from 42 balls. West Indies have scored 17/1 in 10 overs since Lunch.

38.6 J Anderson to D Bravo, DROPPED! Oh dear...that is a dolly which has been put down by Graeme Swann. Anderson persists with his nagging line outside off, on length, Bravo slashes hard and gets a thick outside edge. It flies at a comfortable tummy height to Swann at second slip who puts it down. 100/3

37.4 S Broad to Chanderpaul, Good length delivery outside off, Chanderpaul pushes and misses outside off. 100/3

37.3 S Broad to Chanderpaul, A stifled appeal for LBW, turned down. Pitched on length outside off, Chanderpaul gets across to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. Hawk Eye shows the ball to be missing leg stump. 100/3

37.2 S Broad to Bravo, This is angling into the pads, Bravo shuffles across and ticks it to the fine leg region for a single. In fact, a leg bye has been signalled. 100 UP FOR WEST INDIES! 100/3

37.1 S Broad to Bravo, Good length delivery outside off, nipping back in, punched straight to cover. 99/3

36.1 M Samuels to Trott, Full outside off, driven through the covers for a single. 119/1

36.6 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 4 from the over, this stand is worth 13 from 30 balls. 99/3

36.5 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, This is well wide outside off, no shot offered to. 99/3

36.4 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, FOUR! Flamboyant! Full and wide outside off, Chanderpaul lets the ball to come and then, at the last moment, reaches out and drives it through the covers! The ball meets the fence in a flash. Chanderpaul moves into double figures. 99/3

36.3 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, Outside off, not played at. 95/3

36.2 J Anderson to Chanderpaul, Good length delivery on middle, a bit of extra bounce, Chanderpaul is surprised a touch as he comes forward to defend but manages to fend it away. 95/3

35.4 S Broad to Bravo, Wide outside off, left alone. 95/3

35.3 S Broad to S Chanderpaul, Almost takes Bell's head off! Short ball on middle, Chanderpaul shuffels across and goes for the pull instantaneously. There is a man placed specifically for that shot at leg gully who just fails to spot the ball and it goes to fine leg. A single taken. 95/3

35.2 S Broad to Chanderpaul, This is short in length, down the leg side, Chanderpaul gets across and takes his bat out of harm's way. Broad gives a long look at the place where the ball landed, then the batsman, before getting back to bowl. 94/3

35.1 S Broad to Chanderpaul, Good length delivery outside off, left alone. 94/3

34.6 M Samuels to Trott, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 114/1

"Lovely 50 for Strauss... Only thing on his mind is 3 figures today... Looking very good to get a big one ..." tweets Michael Vaughan.

34.4 M Samuels to Trott, FOUR! Bad ball. Short outside off, punched through the covers. No insurance in the deep and a boundary is the result. The deficit has come down to 129. 114/1

34.2 M Samuels to Trott, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 110/1

34.6 J Anderson to Bravo, That is a jaffa! Good length delivery outside off, Bravo feels for it but is beaten. 94/3

34.5 J Anderson to Bravo, Oohhh...lands this well outside off, forces Bravo to play away from his body and induces an outside edge. But Lady Luck does not grant him any favour and carries the ball all along the ground past gully to third man. Two runs taken. 94/3

34.4 J Anderson to Bravo, Outside off, left alone again. 92/3

The consistent leaving of balls outside the off stump from Bravo has forced Anderson to come around the wicket now...

34.3 J Anderson to Bravo, Landed on middle, angling away, left alone again. 92/3

34.2 J Anderson to Bravo, This is right on middle, watchfully defended back to the bowler. 92/3

34.1 J Anderson to Bravo, Good length delivery outside off, left alone. 92/3

First look at spin. Marlon Samuels ino the attack. England trail by 133 runs. 54 overs left in the day. This stand is worth 63 from 133 balls. They have scored 30/0 in 11 overs since Lunch.

33.6 S Gabriel to A Strauss, Full outside off, a nice shot but straight to mid off. 110/1

33.5 S Gabriel to Strauss, Landed outside off, left alone. 110/1

33.1 S Gabriel to Trott, Wide outside off, left alone. 109/1

33.6 S Broad to Chanderpaul, FOUR! Super stuff. Good length delivery outside off, Chanderpaul just gets across and close to the line of the ball and guides it to the third man fence. He is batting at a strike-rate of 100! 92/3

33.5 S Broad to Chanderpaul, Full and wide outside off, 78.4 mph, oh my word, he really played at that! Looked like the gully fielder was taken by surprise as well as he fumbled a ball coming straight to him and conceded a couple. 88/3

33.4 S Broad to Chanderpaul, This is down the leg side, Chanderpaul lets it go. 86/3

33.3 S Broad to Chanderpaul, The batsman defends it from within the crease. 86/3

33.2 S Broad to Chanderpaul, This one comes back in a mile from outside off, 85.4 mph. Chanderpaul gives us the impression that he has played and missed it but in reality, his bat is well inside the line and he has actually let the ball go. 86/3

33.1 S Broad to Chanderpaul, Good length delivery outside off, 84.3 mph, Chanderpaul gets well across his stumps and lets it go. 86/3

Shannon Gabriel into the attack again. 5-0-14-0 so far. England trail by 134 runs. 55 overs left in the day. This stand is worth 62 from 127 balls.

28th Test Fifty for Andrew Strauss, 3rd against West Indies! It was a struggle for the first half hour after Lunch but since then the runs have been flowing.

32.6 D Sammy to Strauss, Gets right behind the line to defend. 9 from the over! 109/1

32.5 D Sammy to Strauss, FOUR! A gift. Short and down the leg side, helped away to the fine leg fence. Nice way to bring up the half century. 109/1

32.4 D Sammy to Strauss, Defended off the back foot by the batsman. 105/1

32.3 D Sammy to A Strauss, FOUR! Full on middle, Strauss comes forward and drives it straight down the ground for a boundary! 105/1

32.1 D Sammy to Trott, Full on middle, Trott gets across and flicks it towards mid-wicket where a diving stop saves runs. Cannot prevent the single. 101/1

32.6 J Anderson to Bravo, Outside off, left alone again. 86/3

32.5 J Anderson to D Bravo, Good length delivery on middle, Bravo is squared up in defense and gets a thick outside edge which does not carry to Pietersen at gully. 86/3

32.4 J Anderson to Bravo, Outside off, left alone. 86/3

32.3 J Anderson to Bravo, Oohhhhh...so lucky! Full outside off, Bravo pushes at it limply and gets a thick inside edge which just goes past the stumps! 86/3

32.2 J Anderson to Bravo, Another back foot defense. 86/3

32.1 J Anderson to Bravo, Good length delivery outside off, watchfully defended. 86/3

31.1 K Roach to Strauss, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 98/1

The real test begins now. Shivnarine Chanderpaul walks in at number 5, replacing Barath.

31.6 S Broad to A Barath, OUT! Fumbled but taken in the end! Full and wide outside off, Barath slashes hard, without moving his feet but only manages a thick outside edge. The ball flies towards Anderson at gully who leaps in the air to catch it, fumbles in the first attempt but takes it in the second. Alas....the full delivery outside off is the reason for Barath's demise again. He departs for 42 and the 54-run stand is broken. WEST INDIES 86/3! Interestingly, this was the seventh delivery of the over. Had that decision not been reviewed early on, this ball would not have been bowled at all! 86/3

31.5 S Broad to Barath, Defends this watchfully. 86/2

31.4 S Broad to Barath, The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery. 86/2

31.4 Broad to Barath, NO BALL! Oh dear....... replays show the landing of the foot on the line. The umpire gets the confirmation from the third umpire and it is no-balled. It was a good length delivery outside off, nipped back in, and hit Barath on the pads. Hawk Eye showed the ball to be clipping the top of off stump. England's reviews are intact though. 86/2

Huge appeal for LBW against Barath. Not given by umpire Aleem Dar. England have gone for the review.

31.3 S Broad to Barath, This is pretty wide outside off, Barath lets it go. 85/2

31.2 S Broad to Barath, Another leave outside his off stump. 85/2

31.1 S Broad to Barath, Full outside off, swinging away, left alone. 85/2

30.6 D Sammy to Strauss, Drives it towards mid on for a single. 11 from the over. 98/1

50-stand is up!

30.5 D Sammy to Strauss, On the pads, clipped aerially wide of mid-wicket for a couple. 97/1

30.4 D Sammy to Strauss, FOUR! Good shot but a poor effort in the field. Full outside off, Strauss drives this straight down the ground. Mid off and mid on converge but both miss the ball and it goes through. Moves to 40. The deficit is now 148. 95/1

30.3 D Sammy to Strauss, Outside off, left alone. 91/1

30.2 D Sammy to Strauss, FOUR! And just as I finish typing that essay, Sammy bowls a juicy half volley on the pads, Strauss clips it through mid-wicket for a boundary. 91/1

This is good bowling. West Indies building pressure on Strauss. He was on 31 when England went in to Lunch and in these 35 minutes post Lunch, he has moved only to 32. He has not been given anything to cut or room to free his arms.

30.1 D Sammy to Strauss, Full on middle, played straight to mid on. 87/1

30.6 J Anderson to Barath, Full on middle, driven towards mid on for a quick single. 85/2

Nick Knight on air says that the groundsman informed him this morning that they have had four dry days on the trot which has helped him prepare a decent pitch.

30.5 J Anderson to Barath, Good length delivery outside off, 84.7 kph, punched straight to point. 84/2

30.4 J Anderson to Barath, Excellent short ball on middle, 83.9 mph, Barath ducks under it. No real venom in that but well directed. Not a great deal of pace in this pitch. 84/2

30.3 J Anderson to Barath, Full and straight, watchfully defended back to the bowler. 84/2

30.2 J Anderson to Barath, Goes back in his crease to defend. 84/2

30.1 J Anderson to Barath, Excellent judgement. Pitched on good length outside off, Barath trusts the bounce and lets it go. The ball goes over the top of the off stump. 84/2

29.6 K Roach to Trott, This one nips back in from outside off on a length, Trott looks to work it away but misses and is hit on the thigh pads. The ball lobs away to gully. 87/1

29.5 K Roach to Trott, Full outside off, driven straight to cover. 87/1

29.4 K Roach to Trott, Short outside off again, 87.2 mph, Trott shoulders arms to that one. 87/1

29.3 K Roach to Trott, Nice short delivery outside off, 84.9 mph, tapped straight to point. 87/1

29.2 K Roach to Trott, Good length delivery again, outside off, 83.5 mph, Trott gets across and pushes it towards mid-wicket. 87/1

29.6 S Broad to Bravo, Full and straight, watchfully defended. 84/2

29.5 S Broad to Bravo, Full outside off, Bravo punches it through extra covers where Bell dives to his left, full length and parries it to mid off. 84/2

29.3 S Broad to Bravo, Another leave outside the off stump. 84/2

29.2 S Broad to Bravo, Outside off, left alone. 84/2

29.1 S Broad to Bravo, This is down the leg side, Bravo misses out on his flick. A bit of an appeal from the slip cordon but the men who were actually involved, the bowler and the keeper, are not interested. Prior looks at Broad for support but the bowler simply turns back to his bowling mark. 84/2

29.1 S Broad to Bravo, NO BALL! Oversteps and bowls a very wide delivery outside off, is left alone. 84/2

28.6 D Sammy to Strauss, On middle, played straight to short mid-wicket. 87/1

28.5 D Sammy to Strauss, Full on middle, Strauss comes forward and drives it straight back but Sammy stops it with his right hand. 87/1

28.4 D Sammy to Strauss, Landed on middle, 76.2 mph, Strauss pushes it towards gully. 87/1

28.3 D Sammy to Strauss, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 87/1

28.2 D Sammy to Trott, This is a legal delivery, landed on middle, pushed towards mid on for a single. This stand is worth 40 from 99 balls. 87/1

Oops...what happened there? Sammy was about to deliver the ball but the ball slips off his hand. Trott has no idea where it is gone and then realizes that the ball has landed at gully! He smiles.

28.1 D Sammy to Trott, Full on middle, Trott gets across and flicks it towards short mid-wicket. 86/1

The players are back on to the field. Sturt Broad to resume proceedings. 8-2-30-0 so far. This stand is worth 51 from 85 balls. Bravo to face. All set! Here we go!

An excellent session of Test cricket. Anderson was outstanding, Barath excellent, Bravo threatening while Broad and Bresnan were below their best. West Indies will take this score, given that they were two down for not many. This stand between Barath and Bravo has given the visiting side a much needed lift. Join us back at 1240 GMT (1810 IST) for the second sessoin....

28.6 G Swann to Barath, And a watchful defense to end the session. LUNCH ON DAY 1! 83/2

28.5 G Swann to Barath, That's a full toss, outside off, Barath drives it straight to mid off. Will be disappointed on not putting that away. 83/2

28.3 G Swann to Barath, Flighted outside off, Barath comes forward and defends. 83/2

50-stand is up in 80 balls!

28.1 G Swann to Barath, Landed on middle, worked away towards mid-wicket for a single. 82/2

27.6 K Roach to Strauss, Landed outside off, on a length, left alone. 86/1

27.5 K Roach to Trott, That's a touch wayward, sliding on the pads, 85.3 mph, Trott gets across to flick but fails to do so. The ball rolls off his pads behind the wickets and the batsmen take a leg bye. 86/1

27.4 K Roach to Trott, Good length delivery outside off, 84.1 mph, left alone. 85/1

27.3 K Roach to Strauss, On middle, 84.1 mph, worked behind square leg for a run. 85/1

26.1 Sammy to Trott, Mild appeal for caught behind, turned dow, Good length delivery outside off, Trott goes back to to defend but misses and is beaten as he is squared up. Ramdin goes up in an appeal for the catch but is turned down. Hello? What do we see here? HOT SPOT DETECTS AN OUTSIDE EDGE! 82/1

26.6 G Swann to Bravo, Oohhh....lucky. Full on middle, Bravo pushes at it and gets a thick inside edge towards short fine leg. He is ball-watching but Barath calls him for the single.

25.1 Tim Bresnan to Barath, Huge appeal for LBW, turned down. Full on middle, Barath misses his flick and gets hit on the pads. Bresnan appeals, umpire Aleem Dar thinks long and hard but then shakes his head. Strauss thinks about the review but doesn't go for it. Hawk Eye shows the ball to be clipping leg stump, so a fair call from Dar. 74/2

Shane Warne is not too happy with that verdict. He tweets, "Wow, that's a super lucky break for Trott, should have been over turned in my opinion - OUT !!! Great tv work from the Sky team !"

24.2 D Sammy to Trott, NOT OUT. A very close call. Full on middle, Trott gets across to flick but misses and is hit right in front. Sammy appeals but umpire Dar reckons that it might be slipping down leg. Sammy consults his keeper and goes for the review and Hawk Eye shows the ball to be clipping leg stump, which means the umpire's call will stay. 81/1

LBW appeal against Trott! Not given. West Indies have gone for the review.

23.2 Tim Bresnan to Bravo, Outside off, left alone. 65/2

We are all set for the play to resume. Strauss to take strike. Kemar Roach to start off proceedings. 7-0-32-1 so far. 65 overs left in the day.

It has gone very dark and the floodlights are on. But the clouds have drifted away.

Day 2, session 2......

England's session. They did not waste a second this morning and took the last West Indian wicket on the very first ball and have now backed it up with a strong batting display, led from the front by the skipper. Cook will be rueing his missed opportunity as this looks a pretty flat deck. The West Indies were not bad with the ball but they are not swinging it as much as their counterparts did. The deficit is down to 163 and should come to double figures by the end of the second session. However, the threat of rain looms.....join us back at 1240 GMT (1810 IST).

22.6 F Edwards to Trott, Another leave outside off to end the session. LUNCH ON DAY 2! 80/1

22.5 F Edwards to Trott, Outside off, left alone. 80/1

It's gone cloudy, really cloudy. Plenty of dark clouds have come around to give some company to the crowd and the players.

22.4 F Edwards to Strauss, Fuller delivery outside off, pushed through the covers for a single. 80/1

Edwards coming around the wicket. His action does not seem to suggest that he would be comfortable with that angle. Let's see how he copes with it.

22.3 S Broad to A Barath, FOUR! Another cracker from Barath. Full outside off, 80 mph, Barath stands tall and punches it on the up through the covers. Then shows a pose for the photographers. That was a stunning shot. That's his 9th boundary in a score of 38! 65/2

22.1 S Broad to Barath, Good length delivery outside off, 83.9 mph, swinging away, Barath lets it go. 61/2

21.3 D Sammy to Trott, Goes back in his crease to defend. 73/1

21.2 D Sammy to Trott, The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 73/1

Michael Holding is furious on air. He simply cannot understand the fact that Fidel Edwards, who is half fit, is playing this match. He does not have a clear picture of Jerome Taylor's injury and fitness and is furious with the Windies administration. Poor David Lloyd sitting next to him is shocked to see the anger. Another topic comes up - Dwayne Bravo's availability or unavailability? Gosh...we can talk/write about this for ages....

21.6 Tim Bresnan to Bravo, Short outside off, Bravo misses out, cuts the ball straight to point. 61/2

21.2 Tim Bresnan to Bravo, FOUR BYES! Plenty of swing available there. Full outside off, Bravo feels for it but is beaten by the late movement. It beats even Prior who dives full stretch to his left but can only glove it to the third man fence. 59/2

21.1 Tim Bresnan to Bravo, Good length delivery outside off, Bravo pushes at it towards gully where Pietersen first collects the ball and then dives for no reason. That reminds me, Pietersen is back on the field. 55/2

20.4 S Broad to Barath, Outside off, left alone. 51/2

20.3 S Broad to A Barath, FOUR! Good length delivery outside off, 84.5 mph, Barath gently nudges this past the slips to third man. The ball nearly races away to the ropes but Anderson chases it down from third slip and dives full length to pull the ball back. The batsmen take three. The fielding is referred upstairs and replays show that while pulling the ball back, it hit his knee while he was still in contact with the ropes. A boundary signalled. 50 UP FOR WEST INDIES! 51/2

20.2 S Broad to Barath, Fuller, 80.6 mph, outside off again, swinging away, Barath lets it go. 47/2

19.2 Tim Bresnan to Barath, Outside off, left alone. 46/2

17.2 Tim Bresnan to Barath, A rare bad delivery, short and too wide outside off, Barath resists the temptation to have a flash at it and lets it go. 38/2

Darren Bravo walks in at number 4, replacing Kirk Edwards.

14.5 J Anderson to Edwards, OUT! LBW! That is as good as it gets. Gone for all money, Kirk. Dead plumb. Full outside off, swinging back in, Edwards plays all over it, looking to flick but misses and gets hit right in front. Anderson appeals and umpire Erasmus raises his finger. Edwards shakes his head as he walks back, but that's not for the decision. It is for the shot played. Hawk Eye shows the ball to be hitting middle stump. Kirk Edwards departs for 1, WEST INDIES 32/2! 32/2

14.4 J Anderson to Barath, Down the leg side again, Barath misses his flick and gets hit on the pads. Takes a leg bye off the deflection. 32/1

14.1 J Anderson to Edwards, Good length delivery outside off, Edwards just taps it towards cover and sets off for a quick single. Gets it as well. 27/1

13.6 K Roach to Strauss, Well outside off, left alone. 52/1

13.5 K Roach to A Strauss, FOUR! Pummeled! Little bit of width outside off, short in length, 85.3 mph, not too much bounce, Strauss flashes hard and gets it past gully to third man. Nicely played. Cook was probably trying for a similar kind of a shot but Strauss here got about a bat's width and had a chance to free his arms. 50 UP FOR ENGLAND! 52/1

13.4 K Roach to Strauss, Good length delivery outside off, 83 mph, not played at. This is not the quickest Lord's pitch. 48/1

13.3 K Roach to Strauss, This is landed on middle, pushed towards mid-wicket. 48/1

12.4 S Gabriel to Trott, Good length delivery outside off, 87.3 mph, coming back in, Trott gets across and works it towards backward square leg. 48/1

12.3 S Gabriel to Strauss, Now that is good fielding. Strauss tucks it through square leg and calls for two immediately. However, the man in the deep attacks the ball and keeps the batsmen to a single. 48/1

12.2 S Gabriel to Strauss, Good length delivery on leg stump, 87.1 mph, Strauss looks to tuck it away to the leg side but gets a bit of a leading edge to cover. The bowling has been decent enough but the fielding has not been impressive. 47/1

12.4 J Anderson to Barath, FOUR! Fabulous! He is in some form, Barath, though his records do not suggest so. He is timing the ball beautifully today. Full and straight, Barath comes forward and just gently pushes this down the ground. Jonathan Trott trotts after it from mid on but the ball wins the race. 25/1

CRICKET STAT - So far, Tim Bresnan has a perfect record with England in Test matches. He has played 11 Test matches and the Brits have won all of them.

11.5 K Roach to Cook, OUT! Drags it on! West Indies get the breakthrough at last. Good length delivery outside off, 86.6 mph, Cook looks to play his favourite shot, the cut, but is too close to the ball. Ends up getting a thick inside edge onto his stumps. Both, batsman and bowler just stand over there. Cook, in frustration while Roach, in a manner probably indicating that he didn't expect that wicket. Cook departs for 26, ENGLAND 47/1! 47/1

11.4 K Roach to Cook, Yorker outside off, Cook digs it out. 47/0

10.4 J Anderson to Barath, Oohh..that swung a mile. But misdirected. Way down the leg side, swings further down after pitching, Barath misses his flick and poor Prior has to dive full length to his left. Can only get a glove and parries it down to fine leg. Two runs taken. 21/1

10.3 J Anderson to Barath, Outside off, left alone. 19/1

10.2 J Anderson to Barath, Goes back in his crease to defend this one. 19/1

10.1 J Anderson to Barath, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 19/1
