It mat­tered lit­tle as Dowrich man­aged to more than dou­ble his pal­try se­ries tally of runs but still mus­tered only 14 be­fore mis-pulling Toby Roland-Jones to present Broad with an un­miss­able catch this time at short mid-on.

Hope lasted just four balls af­ter lunch, though, be­fore An­der­son found late move­ment down the slope to have him caught-be­hind and then dou­bled up by snaking through Deven­dra Bishoo’s de­fences.

Ja­son Holder had es­caped a tough chance to Alas­tair Cook at slip, but he could not make it count - mis-pulling Broad into the leg-side, where An­der­son took the catch.

Then An­der­son him­self ap­pro­pri­ately con­cluded the in­nings by bowl­ing Ke­mar Roach, with­out ad­di­tion, record­ing a new ca­reer-best - his runs con­ceded one fewer than at Trent Bridge against New Zealand in 2008.
