Commentary (England innings)

West Indies have done well to bowl out England allowing them just a 58-run lead. They would have been happy if they would have got the lower order much early. For England, Bresnan played an important innings of 39 and remained unbeaten which helped them get past West Indies' score. Rampaul was the pick of the bowlers for West Indies with figures of 3/75. West Indies need to get their acts together and bat solidly in order to post a stiff target in front of England. The next session will be important for both the teams. Join us in a while for the evening session.

Welcome back for the afternoon session. The players have made their way out to the middle. Strauss and Bresnan are the two batsmen at the crease. Rampaul will start off proceedings for West Indies.

Excellent session for West Indies as they have managed to pick up four crucial wickets for 81 runs. Rampaul provided the important breakthrough of Pietersen and then Roach bowled a fiery spell to remove Bell and Bairstow. With England trailing by just 30 runs, the visitors would be looking to bundle them out as soon as possible in the next session. Strauss is still there at the crease and England will be hoping that he takes them past West Indies' score and provide them a healthy lead. Join us in a while for the afternoon session.

Day 2 saw England dominate proceedings as they piled up 259/2 thanks to another solid century by skipper Andrew Strauss. The hosts did well to bowl out the visitors for 370 after Sammy and Samuels had hit crucial tons. They now trail by just 111 runs with 8 wickets remaining. For West Indies, Rampaul bowled a terrific spell, while Shillingford disappointed. They need to get their acts together and make sure they get early breakthroughs in the first session. While England's strong batting line-up would be looking to pile up a sizable lead as the day goes on. An intriguing day's play is on the cards.

Hello and welcome to the coverage of day 3 of the 2nd Test between England and West Indies at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Andrew Strauss was the star with the bat, stroking a fluent century and he was assisted well by Trott and Pietersen. The wicket is superb for batting and England would be hoping to get into the lead tomorrow by lunch. West Indies, on the other hand, need wickets to come back and they have to bowl better than today. Do join us tomorrow to catch all the day 3 action. Until next time, it's good bye and cheers!!!

Another good session for England! They mustered 136 runs during that period for the loss of Trott's wicket. West Indies struck straight after the tea break but the duo of Pietersen and Strauss batted superbly henceforth and didn't allow any more hiccups. The pair is amidst a 136-run stand and the deficit for England is now down to 111.

We're back for the evening session. 34 overs are still left in the day's play. The players are out in the middle. Ravi Rampaul to bowl first up...

Day 2, third session...

England's session! They scored 115 runs in the 29 overs bowled and lost the only wicket of Cook. West Indies bowled poorly with their premium bowlers struggling with the issue of overstepping. However, they will be happy to see the back of Cook, who got out twice off a no ball by Kemar Roach. Jonathan Trott and Andrew Strauss are currently in the middle and they are batting beautifully on a good batting track. The partnership is worth 80 runs now and the deficit for England is now down to 247. Join us in a while for the last session...

It is a true wicket for stroke making and England would be hoping for a commanding batting performance. Stay tuned as Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook will be out soon to open the English innings...

Nice batting show by West Indies to put a respectable total on the board. At one stage they were reeling on 6/136 but an enthralling stand between Samuels and Sammy bailed them out via a 204-run stand. Both batsmen showed that there is no demons in the wicket and cashed in with a century each. England bowling was excellent in bits and parts. But credit to them for restricting West Indies under 400 on a good batting wicket.

Welcome back for the afternoon session. The players have made their way out to the middle. Strauss and Bresnan are the two batsmen at the crease. Rampaul will start off proceedings for West Indies.

Excellent session for West Indies as they have managed to pick up four crucial wickets for 81 runs. Rampaul provided the important breakthrough of Pietersen and then Roach bowled a fiery spell to remove Bell and Bairstow. With England trailing by just 30 runs, the visitors would be looking to bundle them out as soon as possible in the next session. Strauss is still there at the crease and England will be hoping that he takes them past West Indies' score and provide them a healthy lead. Join us in a while for the afternoon session.

Cricket stat - It has been six Tests since the team batting first in a Test at Trent Bridge scored more than 400. That was England's 477 in 2005.

The wicket is spectacular for batting and the two overnight batsmen certainly proved it to their top order by batting fluently. The visitors would look to pile on a big first innings total today and for that to happen the current stand needs to blossom. Promises to be an exciting day's play. Sit back and enjoy the commentary...

England dominated first two sessions yesterday and had the opposition on the back foot but West Indies bounced back superbly. It was the Sammy-Samuels show in the evening session as the duo amassed 150 runs in that period and are currently amidst a record 168-run stand.

Hello and a warm welcome to all our viewers and thank you for tuning in to the coverage of second day of the second Test match between England and West Indies at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Day 2, first session...

That's it from all of us here. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the coverage of day 2 tomorrow. Till then, good bye and take care.

Ayaz Memon tweets, "tell you what, West Indies are missing Dwayne Bravo even more than Chris Gayle in Test series against England."

An intriguing day's play comes to an end with West Indies posting 304/6. England dominated the first two sessions, picking up six wickets for just 154 runs but West Indies struck back hard in the last session as Samuels and Sammy added 150 runs to help West Indies to a decent total. Samuels played a patient and a mature knock and brought up his 3rd Test hundred, while Sammy played a good helping hand. Anderson was the pick of the England bowlers with figures of 2/58. England would be looking to break this partnership as soon as possible tomorrow morning and make sure that the visitors don't pile on a sizeable total.

The players have made their way out to the middle. Strauss and Pietersen are the two batsmen at the crease. Rampaul will start off proceedings for West Indies.

Interesting stat - Andrew Strauss is again not out on a century overnight and he has never added more than six runs the following day! Well, the English skipper will surely love to break this jinx!

Day 2 saw England dominate proceedings as they piled up 259/2 thanks to another solid century by skipper Andrew Strauss. The hosts did well to bowl out the visitors for 370 after Sammy and Samuels had hit crucial tons. They now trail by just 111 runs with 8 wickets remaining. For West Indies, Rampaul bowled a terrific spell, while Shillingford disappointed. They need to get their acts together and make sure they get early breakthroughs in the first session. While England's strong batting line-up would be looking to pile up a sizable lead as the day goes on. An intriguing day's play is on the cards.

Hello and welcome to the coverage of day 3 of the 2nd Test between England and West Indies at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Andrew Strauss was the star with the bat, stroking a fluent century and he was assisted well by Trott and Pietersen. The wicket is superb for batting and England would be hoping to get into the lead tomorrow by lunch. West Indies, on the other hand, need wickets to come back and they have to bowl better than today. Do join us tomorrow to catch all the day 3 action. Until next time, it's good bye and cheers!!!

Another good session for England! They mustered 136 runs during that period for the loss of Trott's wicket. West Indies struck straight after the tea break but the duo of Pietersen and Strauss batted superbly henceforth and didn't allow any more hiccups. The pair is amidst a 136-run stand and the deficit for England is now down to 111.

Welcome back for the evening session. The players have made their way out to the middle. Samuels and Sammy are the two batsmen at the crease. Bresnan will start off proceedings for England.

At Tea on day 1, West Indies are 154/6. West Indies managed to score just 70 runs from the session for the loss of Chanderpaul and Ramdin. The visitors did not get the momentum in the session and only Samuels has looked stoic at the wicket. They have lost their talisman, Chanderpaul and it's up to the skipper and Samuels to deliver the goods and power the visitors to a competitive total from here on. Swann has bowled with great discipline and has been rewarded with the big wicket of Chanderpaul. They would be looking to wrap it up as soon as possible in the next session. Join us in a while for the evening session.

Day 2, third session...

England's session! They scored 115 runs in the 29 overs bowled and lost the only wicket of Cook. West Indies bowled poorly with their premium bowlers struggling with the issue of overstepping. However, they will be happy to see the back of Cook, who got out twice off a no ball by Kemar Roach. Jonathan Trott and Andrew Strauss are currently in the middle and they are batting beautifully on a good batting track. The partnership is worth 80 runs now and the deficit for England is now down to 247. Join us in a while for the last session...

Welcome to the afternoon session. The players have made their way out to the middle. Chanderpaul and Samuels are the two batsmen at the crease. Swann will start off proceedings for England.

At lunch on day 1, West Indies are 84/4. It was by far England's session as they managed to rip through West Indies' top order with consummate ease.
