As it Happened


goodbye for now

Well that's the end of a day which will live long in the memory thanks to James Anderson, but which also featured a stunning cameo from Ross Taylor and a top all-round performance by the Black Caps.

We're signing off for the night, but there will be reaction from on and off the field over on the news site and you can also browse today's exclusive photo album.

Goodnight and thanks for joining us - see you tomorrow!

bad light stops play

With about 15 minutes left before the cut off, the umpires have decided that the artificial light has overtaken the natural light and they're heading off the Pavilion.


trott time

Even with the floodlights on, it's getting a bit dark out there and Jonathan Trott has been thrown the ball...



Steven Finn pitches one up and wraps Dean Browlie on the pad. Huge appeal, but umpire Davis is unmoved. The England team have a conflab and decide to review. There is no inside edge and Brownlie is plumb in front.


so close!

Dean Brownlie is a lucky man!

Swann has switched to the Nursery End and immediately gets one to turn very sharply up the hill, beating the batsman's inside edge and just bouncing over the stumps and away for a couple of byes.
