  • Eng 111-1 (Cook 43, Trott 13*) 30 overs, target 108: ENGLAND WIN! And it's a bit of an anti-climax as a quicker ball from Samuels glances off Trott's pad and runs away for four leg byes. England win by nine wickets and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-Test series. That's it from Trent Bridge, join us for live updates from the third Test at Edgbaston, starting on 7 June.
  • Eng 107-1 (Cook 43, Trott 13*) 30 overs, target 108: Cook refuses to be hurried and works Shillingford to mid-wicket for yet another single, and Trott's elegant clip through mid-wicket earns three and brings the scores level.
  • Eng 103-1 (Cook 42*, Trott 10) 29 overs, target 108: Classy stroke from the classy Trott, who rocks back and drives Samuels through the covers for an effortless boundary. Just five to win now.
  • Eng 99-1 (Cook 42, Trott 6*) 28 overs, target 108: Cook chips uppishly towards mid-on, who is too deep to have any chance. Otherwise, four comfortable singles bring the target down to single figures.
  • Eng 95-1 (Cook 40*, Trott 4) 27 overs, target 108: Cook looks content to chip away in singles, and a chop into a gap in the covers moves him into the 40s. Samuels beats Trott's errant waft, and a quicker ball fails to eak through.
  • Eng 94-1 (Cook 39*, Trott 4) 26 overs, target 108: Tidy over from Shillingford, yielding only a Cook jab to mid-on for a single. Trott gets away with a bat-pad looper, but it's nowhere near short-leg.
  • Eng 93-1 (Cook 38*, Trott 4) 25 overs, target 108: WICKET! A tame end for Strauss, who doe't get to the pitch of a flighted ball from Samuels and drives straight to Bravo at extra cover. Strauss gone for 45, 72 balls, seven fours. Trott takes only three balls to get off the mark, cutting a buffet long-hop to the fence at point.
  • Eng 89-0 (Strauss 45*, Cook 38) 24 overs, target 108: Inspired by the part-timer Samuels, Shillingford extracts some turn and bounce that beats Cook and Ramdin and trundles to the rope for four byes. But that's as good as it gets for the spinner as Strauss slogs him over mid-wicket for another boundary.
  • Eng 79-0 (Strauss 40, Cook 37*) 23 overs, target 108: Samuels gets another chance to display his off-spin prowess, and he beats Cook with one that spits out of a foothold. But Cook had already cut for two and a firm drive to the cover sweeper brings a single.
  • Eng 76-0 (Strauss 40, Cook 34*) 22 overs, target 108: Strauss and Cook look as relaxed as they ever have as the final session resumes. Shillingford knocks another one of the target with a no-ball, and Cook steals a eaky single to mid-on.
  • Eng 74-0 (Strauss 40, Cook 33*) 21 overs, target 108: TEA! Sammy keeps himself on, and Strauss and Cook nudge and nurdle three singles and a two to fine leg. Off they go, and England will resume needing just 34 to wrap up the series.
  • Eng 69-0 (Strauss 39, Cook 29*) 20 overs, target 108: Shillingford to Strauss, three firm drives and three solid blocks. That's a maiden and it's time for t ...... no it i't, it's only 3:39.
  • Eng 69-0 (Strauss 39*, Cook 29) 19 overs, target 108: Lucky escape for Strauss as he edges a wild cut off Sammy. Ramdin and first slip watch the ball fly in between them, and Sammy offers them his unprintable opinion. His mood doe't improve when Cook whips him through mid-wicket for two more.
  • Eng 62-0 (Strauss 34*, Cook 27) 18 overs, target 108: Shillingford drags another one short, Cook cuts behind square and a sliding Rampaul can't prevent the boundary. England, cruising = understatement.
  • Eng 56-0 (Strauss 33, Cook 22*) 17 overs, target 108: Strauss opens the face again and picks up three with a classy guide past gully. Cook glances a straight ball from Sammy to the fine-leg boundary, and the Windies shoulders sag a little bit further.
  • Eng 48-0 (Strauss 30*, Cook 17) 16 overs, target 108: The Samuels experiment lasts only one over, now it's Shillingford's turn. But he starts with a woeful half-tracker that Cook cuts away for four, and Strauss sweeps a single last ball. Too easy.
  • Eng 42-0 (Strauss 29, Cook 13*) 15 overs, target 108: Short, wide filth from Sammy, Cook cuts hard and looks to have his first boundary until sub fielder Fudadin intervenes with a superb diving stop. Strauss runs hard to pick up two from a clip to leg, and that's an effortless five from the over.
  • Eng 37-0 (Strauss 27, Cook 10*) 14 overs, target 108: Time for spin, but it's part-timer Samuels who gets the nod and not specialist offy Shillingford. Two rank long-hops slapped to deep cover-point for singles.
  • Eng 35-0 (Strauss 26*, Cook 9) 13 overs, target 108: Four dot balls and two singles to the sweeper at deep point. Just another average Sammy over really. Perhaps the Windies skipper wants to get the game over with before tea.
  • Eng 33-0 (Strauss 25, Cook 8*) 12 overs, target 108: The Windies best chance of a wicket could be a run-out, and a direct hit from Powell at cover would have accounted for Cook. Strauss, unruffled, glides the next ball from Rampaul beyond gully for another boundary.
