Taylor checks England progress

Jerome Taylor produced another fine fast-bowling spell to undermine England's efforts in the third Test in Antigua.

Paceman Taylor, whose efforts decimated the England top order in the first Test, bowled Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff in one stunning over at the Recreation Ground.

Pietersen chopped a delivery into stumps, playing back when he might have been forward, and Flintoff was spectacularly castled second ball as off and middle-stumps were cartwheeled.

That left England 405 for six after half-centuries from Pietersen and Paul Collingwood enhanced the position reached by the end of the first evening.
