England vs West Indies Highlights And Cricket Score 3rd Match - Test Commentary

End of Over : 101.5 ENG: 277/10

10 minutes to go for the Lunch interval. Can England prise out a wicket or two before the break? The game is about to resume. Let's play!

A slightly better batting display from England. But again, they have missed out on opportunities. As many as 5 chances were given to them - with 3 dropped catches, a missed run out and the infamous no ball dismissal of Stokes last evening. But still, no one could get a century. The 125-run stand between Buttler and Stokes was the only talking point of the innings and the moment the former was cleaned up this morning, England folded up like a pack of cards. They have lost 6/45 in 16.5 overs. Stokes' 79 and Buttler's 67 highlight the innings but the third highest scorer was Mr. Extras - 38 - 16 wides and 6 no balls dominating the list. Might be crucial given the nature of the pitch.

Roach was menacing, as he shrug off yesterday's bemoans to pick up 4 today. Gabriel was pacy and continuously at the batsmen. And now, the fact which makes this bowling attack look even more fearsome - the backup bowlers. If England thought they had only to see off Roach and Gabriel, they were wrong. Alzarri Joseph and Keemo Paul maintained the same intensity and did not allow easy runs. Finished with 2 apiece.

It has taken the Windies just 18.5 overs this morning to take 6 wickets. They were shy of luck yesterday and eventually, gave vent to their frustration. But this morning, they bowled with fine accuracy and have brought about another English collapse. 232/4, looking good for 350 at least, has ended 23 short of 300.

Well, Windies have a small headache in spite of such a terrific bowling effort. They will have to see off a nasty period of around 8-10 minutes before Lunch. Never easy those. But the time now, is to marvel on their improving and deadly pace battery.

101.5 W

Kemar Roach to James Anderson. OUT! Bounced out! Who is this bowling? Mitchell Johnson? Dale Steyn? Pat Cummins? No. It is Kemar Roach. It is THE Kemar Roach whom we know of. Not that same pace but deadly accurate. A short ball, from around the wicket, right at the body. Anderson has nowhere to go as he simply fends at it. Gets hit on the glove and the ball just lobs to third slip where Keemo Paul does the rest. No wicket for Roach on Saturday - 4 on Sunday! ENGLAND ARE BOWLED OUT FOR 277.

101.4 0

Kemar Roach to James Anderson. A tantalizing yorker, around middle, Anderson digs it out somehow.

James Anderson is the last man in. Windies will hope that the last wicket stand lasts for at least 13 more minutes...

101.3 W

Kemar Roach to Mark Wood. OUT! Spectacular running catch! Alzarri, boy, you are one gem of a kid. Bowls with heart, plenty of pace, plenty of dedication and give your 100 percent in the field. A surprise short ball from Roach, given that the ball is swinging so much. But Wood is ready for it and instinctively goes for the pull. However, he is done in by it and gets a top edge. For a second, it seems like it will clear the boundary but Joseph runs to his right from fine leg and makes a difficult catch look simple. And better - NO reaction from him at all. Has been a difficult week for him.

101.2 0

Kemar Roach to Mark Wood. Wow. What a delivery. Starts around off stump, finishes around leg. And the length? A perfect yorker. But Wood digs it out. Both fast bowlers smile. The one batting, the one bowling.

101.1 2

Kemar Roach to Mark Wood. Full and around off, swinging in, appreciably flicked through square leg for a couple. Good running.

End of Over : 101 1 Runs ENG: 275/8
100.6 0

Alzarri Joseph to Stuart Broad. Down the leg side, Stuart misses his flick. 5/2 in the last 2 overs.

100.5 0

Alzarri Joseph to Stuart Broad. On a good length around off, Broad looks to tuck it to the leg side but misses and is hit on the thighs.

100.4 0

Alzarri Joseph to Stuart Broad. Around off, punched towards mid off.

100.3 0

Alzarri Joseph to Stuart Broad. Full and wide outside off, left alone.

This pitch is for him. But probably an hour later, when he gets the ball in his hand. Here comes Stuart Broad who must be licking his lips already looking at the movement on this track.

100.2 W

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. OUT! Edged and taken! Alzarri's toil fetches him rewards. Moeen is gone now. A length ball outside off, Ali cannot control his fishing earnestness and pokes at it. A thick outside edge results and Darren Bravo completes the formalities at first slip. Might have been some extra bounce on that ball which eked the edge.

100.2 wd

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. WIDE! Miles outside off, left alone and wided.

100.1 0

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. On a good length around middle, tucked towards square leg.

End of Over : 100 4 Runs ENG: 274/7
99.6 4

Kemar Roach to Mark Wood. FOUR RUNNING RUNS! Great bowling, excellent running. Full and around off, swinging in a mile. Credit to Wood for watching the ball till the last moment and then flicking it through mid-wicket. The ball does not exactly race away to the fence but neither does Shannon Gabriel. He jogs after the cherry, from mid on and surprisingly for him, the ball stops. Poor man has to now put in the hard yards to get to the ball and that gives enough time for the batsmen to cross each other 4 times. That would have warmed up Wood nicely. 100 OVERS ARE UP.

Into the bowlers. The first of them is Mark Wood.

99.5 W

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. OUT! TIMBERRRR! The yesteryear old 2-card trick works for Roach. After bowling a short ball previously, he cunningly slips in a full ball. Clearly, Bairstow is not expecting it as he is late on the drive. Because the ball is not pacy, at least, according to the speed gun. It reads 133 kph. But he is still late on the drive. It swings back in, takes the inside edge, hits the pads and boom. Into the stumps. So Bairstow was dropped on 2 and has been dismissed on 2. His poor run continues...

99.4 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. A bouncer now, Jonny ducks.

99.3 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. Full and around off, pushed back to the bowler.

99.2 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. WHERE IS YOUR SHORT LEG? Wicket number 7 could have gone down. Or maybe not. On a good length again, outside off, coming in, Jonny looks to flick and it seems like the ball has taken the inside edge and gone through the vacant short leg region towards square leg. But replays seem to indicate that there was no bat at all. I think the ophthalmologist in my area has a Sunday off. Must visit him first thing in the morning tomorrow.

99.1 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. On a good length outside off, plenty of inward movement in the air, Bairstow plays that late, with soft hands and hence gets an outside edge which does not carry to the slip cordon.

End of Over : 99 4 Runs ENG: 270/6
98.6 0

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. Full and around off, swinging in late, Ali just about gets his bat out to defend as he skews it back to the bowler.

98.5 0

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. Cut into half. On a good length, around off, Moeen looks to defend but the ball seams in a long way, goes between bat and pad and just goes over the top of the stumps!

98.4 2

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. Short and wide outside off, MA slaps it through the covers but the damp outfield prevents the ball from racing away. Kraigg Brathwaite gets to it from the ring and the batsmen return for the second.

98.3 0

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. Full and straight, watchfully patted back.

98.2 0

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. Excellent length. Just short of full, around off. Ali looks to defend but misses.

98.1 2

Alzarri Joseph to Moeen Ali. Full and around middle, swinging in, flicked through mid-wicket for a couple. Moeen moves to 11 from 15 balls. Jonny is still on 2...

Alzarri Joseph to bowl for the first time today. 15-2-56-1 so far.

End of Over : 98 2 Runs ENG: 266/6
97.6 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. Outside off, on a length, Jonny looks to punch it through the off side but his feet don't move while the ball moves. Nips in to take the inner half of the bat, deflecting towards mid on.

97.5 1

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. On middle and leg, flicked through mid-wicket for a run.

97.4 0

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. Full again, in that tempting area, inviting Ali to drive but the batsman resists. The ball swings away nicely to the keeper.

97.3 0

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. Full and outside off, Moeen shoulders arms.

97.2 1

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. NOT OUT. No inside edge, impact is fine but the ball is projected to be going over the top. Windies are done with their reviews for this innings. On a length outside off, Jonny walks into the shot to defend but misses the length. He is hit on the pads and Windies appeal and seem pretty shocked that it is turned down. They are busy discussing about the review when Moeen smartly observes that the ball is not yet dead. He calls Bairstow for the single and completes it safely. Now, Brathwaite takes the review but sadly for him and his team, it just wastes some time.

A review for LBW! The bowler has convinced his skipper that Bairstow is gone. Looks not out to the naked eye. Plenty of possibilities. Inside edge, impact, height...

97.1 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. JB is hit again. On a good length outside off, Bairstow shoulders arms but the ball comes back in a long way and hits him. Just below the box this time.

End of Over : 97 4 Runs ENG: 264/6
96.6 0

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. Into the bread basket. A good length ball, around off, MA looks to defend but the ball seams in appreciably, takes the glove and hits him on the abdomen.

96.5 0

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.

96.4 2

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. LOOSE! But that is how he plays. Full and wide outside off, Ali reaches out to drive and spoons it over point! Two runs taken.

96.3 0

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. Opportunity missed. A half volley again, this time on the pads. Perfect recipe for a boundary through mid-wicket. But just like food does not feel entirely tasty if there is no salt, a shot feels nothing if it is not executed properly. Here, Moeen misses his flick and wears it on the pads. Of course, apologies to diabetic people...

96.2 2

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. Half volley outside off, driven through the covers for a couple.

96.1 0

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. Full and wide outside off, left alone.

Bairstow is taking a moment for himself. Totally understandable. Nothing much the physio can do about this. It is something which one has to bear and just hope that the pain subsides soon.

End of Over : 96 3 Runs ENG: 260/6
95.6 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. OUCH! On the box. That is not a sharp ball from Roach but accurate enough. It is bowled at 131 kph but it hits the grassy part on the pitch and zips back in. And quickly. Jonny looks to defend but misses. Oops...

95.5 0

Kemar Roach to Jonny Bairstow. On a good length outside off, coming in with the angle, Bairstow looks to defend but the ball takes the inner half of the bat and rolls towards short mid-wicket.

95.4 3

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. Somehow Moeen finds the gap. On a good length, outside off, going away off the deck. Ali pushes it towards gully who dives to his left but it sneaks through. Darren Bravo gives it a good chase from first slip, gets to the ball and stops it before crossing over. Three runs taken.

95.3 0

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. In line of the off stump, watchfully pushed towards mid off.

95.2 0

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. Landed outside off, more outswing, shouldered arms to.

95.1 0

Kemar Roach to Moeen Ali. Full and outside off, swinging away, pushed towards gully.

Drinks break. An hour of hostile bowling by Windies. Shannon Gabriel, in particular, had a lot of fire in his deliveries and removed Jos Buttler early. Minutes before this mini-break, Kemar Roach got rid of Ben Stokes, courtesy a stunning catch by Shane Dowrich and the hosts are going along well. England bat deep and let's see for how long they can stretch their innings.

End of Over : 95 1 Runs ENG: 257/6
94.6 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. Play and a miss! Bairstow runs out of patience, tries to smash a short ball across the line but misses.

94.5 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. Was there an outside edge? There is certainly something but no one appealed. It has to be bat. Anyway, if they are not bothered why should we? A length ball nipping away from outside off, Jonny hangs his bat out as he pushes inside the line and misses. Dowrich collects it behind. Would love to see what the Snicko says on this...

94.4 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. Helps it off his pads to the leg side but finds mid-wicket.

94.3 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. Sliding down the leg side, Bairstow fails to flick and Dowrich once again is in action. Diving across and saving runs.

94.2 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. Chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.

94.1 1

Keemo Paul to Moeen Ali. Angling into the batsman, Ali works it on the leg side and gets off the mark with a run.

Moeen Ali's turn to bat now.

End of Over : 94 0 Runs ENG: 256/6
93.6 W

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. OUT! Dowrich has taken a stunner! Wow, great athleticism. Roach gets a breakthrough. He delivers a short one outside off, Stokes shapes up for the pull shot but it arrives late to catch the top edge. It balloons in the air towards square leg, Dowrich wears his skates and scoots towards it and then completes the catch with a full length dive. Maybe, he realized late that he has to go for it as fine leg would not have reached it. Still does a brilliant job not only to get there but grab it well. Superb. The Windies players mob him. Gabriel in fact gives a frog-splash to Dowrich who was lying flat on the ground. Jason Holder in the pavilion is clapping. Stokes returns but not before playing a good hand.

93.5 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Lets out a grunt and delivers a good length ball outside off. Stokes shuffles across the stumps to cover the line this time and then shoulders arms.

93.4 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. On a length outside off, left alone.

93.3 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Good lines. Keeping it on and around off. It's on a length, angling in and then leaving the left-hander. Stokes covers the line and allows it through.

93.2 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Fullish and on off, Stokes drives it off his front foot but finds the fielder at wide mid off.

93.1 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Starts this spell with a good length ball outside off, shaping away a bit, Stokes shoulders arms.

Kemar Roach is back on.

End of Over : 93 6 Runs ENG: 256/5
92.6 1

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Turns a length ball easily in the gap on the leg side for one.

92.5 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. The ball is too wide on the off side for the batsman to make any contact.

92.4 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Gets away with a bad delivery this time. Slips a length ball down the leg side, Stokes doesn't get any wood behind it.

92.4 5

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. FOUR! And it's a no ball as well for overstepping, sixth of the innings, of which, Keemo has bowled five. Amazing indiscipline. Does he look up to Shannon Gabriel for inspiration? Clearly picking the wrong habits of Shannon. Anyway, coming to the delivery, it's short and on middle, Stokes is on top of the bounce as he pulls it behind square leg for a boundary.

92.3 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Walks down the track a bit to counter the movement and then blocks it safely.

92.2 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Angles in a length ball on off, it's defended off the back foot.

92.1 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Beaten! Lovely seam presentation from Paul. He doesn't have the express pace but possesses good skills. Gets a length ball to move away off the seam at 130 kph, Stokes pushes inside the line without any footwork and is beaten.

End of Over : 92 1 Runs ENG: 250/5
91.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Dropped! Gabriel puts down a straightforward chance in his followthrough. Never easy but should have been taken. A length ball angling back into the batsman, Bairstow gets forward and drives it back uppishly. Shannon reacts quickly to his right but it doesn't stick. Early reprieve for Jonny.

91.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Switches to over the wicket and angles in a full ball on off, Jonny defends it from the crease to the off side.

91.4 1

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. A short delivery which has been pulled away. They pick up a single. 250 up for England.

91.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Around off, defended off the back foot.

91.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Stokes goes down. Gabriel runs towards him, not to help him out but to utter some words. Just to let the batsman know who is on top. Stokes smiles and gives it back quietly. All in good fun. A length ball around middle, nipping in sharply at 146 kph, Stokes tries to keep it out but misses and takes a blow on his thigh pad. Ben loses his balance in the process. Doesn't go completely flat on the ground but is on his knees.

91.1 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Good length ball outside off, Stokes defends it from the crease to the off side.

End of Over : 91 3 Runs ENG: 249/5
90.6 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. In the channel around off, left alone by Bairstow. That wasn't too far away from the off pole.

90.5 0

Keemo Paul to Jonny Bairstow. Wide outside off stump, the batsman leaves it alone.

90.4 1

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Risky run. Stokes walks forward and pushes it towards covers. They cross as the fielder misses his shy at the striker's end. Jonny really had to put on his skates.

90.3 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Looks for another drive through the line but it shapes back in to beat the inside edge.

90.2 2

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Tries for a cover drive but inside edges it past the stumps to square leg for a couple.

90.1 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Back of a length delivery outside off, Stokes cuts it from the crease to point.

End of Over : 90 4 Runs ENG: 246/5
89.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Play and a miss! Gabriel bowls it wide outside off, Bairstow flays at it and misses. End of a sharp over by Shannon.

89.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. A little full this time, outside off, Jonny keeps it out towards point.

89.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Stays back to a length ball and punches it out to the off side.

89.3 4

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. FOUR LEG BYES! A snorter by Gabriel. Lets out a lethal short ball at 150 kph, well-directed, Bairstow tries his best to sway away from the line of fire by leaning back but it keeps on following him and brushes the grille of his helmet before flying over the keeper for a boundary. Jonny wears a brave smile on his face. Mind you, he was in all sorts of trouble there. Also, will have to mention his good technique. Eyes on the ball almost till the end with his wrists nicely down. This is great Test match stuff. One for the purists. The bowler bowling with venom and the batsmen trying to survive.

89.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Keeps this one close to off stump, on a length and straightening just a touch, Bairstow takes his front leg forward to cover the off stump and then allows it through.

89.1 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Defended off the back foot by the batsman.

Shannon Gabriel pulls out at the last moment. Maybe, he felt that he was about to overstep. Given their overrate, these things will hurt them only. Already they are without their regular skipper for that very reason.

End of Over : 89 2 Runs ENG: 242/5
88.6 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Good length ball on off, angling in, Stokes covers his stumps and shoulders arms. Fine first over by Paul.

88.5 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Lands it on a length around off, Stokes pushes it with gentle hands and it goes off the outer half towards the slip cordon. Not carrying.

88.4 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. A length ball angling into the batsman, Stokes tries to defend but misses. He is hit on the pads. They appeal but to no avail. Maybe going down leg or some inside edge.

88.3 2

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. AERIAL! Safe... Paul puts the ball on a shortish length just outside off. Stokes sticks back to push inside the line and gets a thick outside edge. It flies wide of the diving gully fielder and goes towards third man for a couple of runs.

88.2 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Full and on middle, angling in, Stokes gets forward and defends it back.

88.1 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Starts his spell with a shortish ball outside off, Stokes defends it to the off side from the back foot.

Keemo Paul to bowl, replacing Kemar Roach. Three slips and a gully for him as well.

End of Over : 88 2 Runs ENG: 240/5
87.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. An inswinger, on a length around off, Bairstow defends it well from the crease.

87.5 1

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Gabriel changes his angle for the left-hander and serves it on middle and leg. Stokes tickles it fine down the leg side for a run. Few words exchanged between the bowler and Stokes. Nothing overboard. All in limits.

87.4 1

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Stands back inside the crease to a shortish ball and drops it with soft hands to covers for a run. Good calling by Jonny.

87.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Inside edge! Gabriel gets this one to talk. Sharp inward movement from a length outside off at 146 kph, Bairstow is caught inside the crease trying to defend and it takes the inside edge before hitting him on the pads. Shannon has been right on the money since morning, unlike Roach.

87.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Slightly short and on off, at 140 kph, Jonny is on his toes as he plays it down towards gully. 'Nooooo' is shout straightaway from him. Anyway there was no run on offer.

87.1 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. On a driving length outside off, not much movement this time, just going with the angle. Bairstow covers his stumps and then leaves it.

End of Over : 87 4 Runs ENG: 238/5
86.6 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.

86.5 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Gets squared up there, Ben. Roach bowls it a touch short on off with the seam pointing towards the slip cordon. Stokes tries to defend from the crease but gets opened up and it hits him on the thigh pad. The bowler needs to serve such deliveries on a consistent basis.

86.4 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Back of a length ball angling in on off, Stokes defends it off his back foot.

86.3 4

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. FOUR! Easy pickings! Roach has been either too far outside off or too close to the pads. This time it's the latter and Stokes helps himself to a boundary by budging it fine on the leg side.

A fielder comes in at covers.

86.2 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Better, much better from Kemar. Angles in a full ball around off, Stokes is forced to play at it and he blocks it off his front foot to the off side.

86.1 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Roach has been wayward with his line. Bowls it too wide outside off, on a back of a length, Stokes has nothing to do with it.

End of Over : 86 2 Runs ENG: 234/5
85.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Good length ball around off, Bairstow stays back and taps it down in the direction of gully. Dot ball to end a successful over for the Windies.

85.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Smell the leather, Jonny! This is lethal bowling. Gabriel bends his back and dishes out a sharp bouncer around off at 145 kph, Bairstow takes his eyes off the ball and then sways away at the last moment.

85.4 1

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. A wayward delivery. Fires a length ball way wide down the leg side, Stokes tries flicking but it's too far from him. Dowrich flies to his right and parries it to fine leg. They take a bye.

Shannon Gabriel seems to have lost his run-up. Pulls out before reaching the popping crease. He has to reload now.

85.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Shortish length ball outside off, Stokes drops his wrists and allows it through to the keeper.

85.2 1

Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Off the mark first ball. Full and on middle, at 145 kph, Bairstow clips it off his pads towards mid-wicket and opens his account with a run.

Jonny Bairstow walks in next.

85.1 W

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. OUT! Timberrrr... A 146 kph delivery by Shannon Gabriel has done the trick. He spears it on a length around off and gets it move back in a bit. Buttler plays all around it with a sorry footwork. It goes right through the gate and shatters the stumps. The 125-run stand is broken and Windies have a perfect start to the morning.

End of Over : 85 0 Runs ENG: 232/4
84.6 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Brilliant delivery. That line around off forced the batsman to play at it but the away movement beat the outside edge. Stokes too was not entirely committed into the shot. Maiden to start with for Kemar Roach!

84.5 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Too wide on this occasion, a comfortable leave this time for Ben Stokes.

84.4 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Oohh...nearly edges that! Kemar lands it on a length and just outside off, Stokes feels for it this time and gets beaten.

84.3 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Full this time and angling in from outside off, Stokes presses forward and pushes it to mid off.

84.2 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Another delivery in the zone outside off, it's left alone by Ben. A watchful beginning by the all-rounder.

84.1 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Roach runs in from 'round the wicket and bowls a length ball outside off. It shapes away a bit after landing as Stokes makes a leave.

Kemar Roach to speed in from the other end.

End of Over : 84 1 Runs ENG: 232/4
83.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. Good length delivery in the channel outside off, left alone easily by Buttler.

83.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. Movement there. Nipping back in from around off, on the shorter side, Buttler goes on his toes to play at it but misses. It clips his thigh pad and loops towards deepish short leg.

83.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. Pitches it up and lands it outside off, inviting the drive, Buttler lets it through to the keeper.

83.3 1

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. A leg stump half-volley on this occasion, Stokes leans across and flicks it past the square leg umpire. The official does well to get away from the ball. There is a fielder in the deep, hence only a run.

83.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Back of a length delivery outside off, Ben gets back to hit it through the line but mistimes it. The ball goes off the bottom edge and rolls on the off side.

83.1 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Begins with a full length ball around off, from 'round the wicket, Stokes defends it solidly.

All in readiness. The Windies players are near the boundary line as the sun is shining brightly on them. Out come Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler in the middle as well. The Barmy Army welcomes them with a warm round of applause. Shannon Gabriel to begin proceedings...

Pitch report - Daren Ganga is expecting interruptions today as well due to rains. Says that this pitch has got the most pace compared to the last two venues. Adds that it will be still good for batting though and that will continue. Feels that the quicker bowlers might just get the reward if they put it in the right areas.

Keemo Paul is giving an interview to Daren Ganga. He says that he wanted to hit the straps early. On his progress, he says that he has been bowling well and hopes to make big contributions. On the pitch, he feels it's a good one where they have to hit the right lines and lengths. Mentions that they have to do the basics right and stay patient. On him replacing Holder, Keemo says that Jason is an exceptional player and he will try his best to contribute, not only with the ball but also with the bat.

We witnessed a terrific battle between bat and ball on Day 1 where the bowlers were on top for most parts, dictating terms. Luck was not on their side otherwise they would have run through in the morning. Their fortunes did change post Lunch where they picked three wickets but after that it was superb batting by the pair of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. They are still unbeaten, eyeing their respective centuries, and are amidst a 124-run partnership. The hosts would like to use the early morning conditions with the second new ball (only three overs old) and create inroads. Will they succeed? Let's wait and watch.

How's the weather? That's the first thing in everyone's minds. We are hearing that it was raining early in the morning but it has cleared for now and the covers are off. A little while ago, the sun was peeping out and let's hope it stays that way for most parts today. On that positive note, let me welcome you all for the coverage of the final Test match between Windies and England in Gros Islet.

... DAY 2, FIRST SESSION ...

Now then, what can we expect on Day 2? England will still have a few good batsmen to come so they will surely be aiming at something above 300 at least. The hosts on the other hand, will need to break this partnership quickly and then try and run through the remaining wickets. One probably feels, they need to keep the away side under the 300-run mark or anything above that, on this wicket, will be too much of a task. They though will need to bowl better by attack the stumps a lot more. Can they do so? Join us to find out at 1000 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

Windies on the other hand, will be very disappointed with their effort, both, with the ball and in the field. They were wayward with their lines a little too often. Their catching was below par which is proving to be quite costly already. Also, Stokes' wicket off the no ball probably sums up their day today. Keemo Paul however, was the pick of the lot. He looked threatening throughout and ended the day with two. Gabriel was also good but lacked consistency.

Day 1 however, did not start in the best of manners for the visitors. They lost the toss and were inserted. They scored very slowly for majority of the two sessions, their run rate was around the 2 runs per over mark. Once again the top three did not make an impact, Root too failed. They were reeling at 107 for 4 but Stokes and Butter's unbeaten 124-run stand, with both scoring half tons have seen England end the day as the happier side.

What a session for England! A wicket-less one and also the English side has managed to score 117 runs in this one. Excellent, especially how they have gone about today. They entered the final passage of play in a spot of bother but have ended the day on top.

The light has been offered and the batsmen have taken it. They begin walking off towards the dressing room to a standing ovation by the fans and the dressing room. THAT WILL BE STUMPS ON DAY 1!

Keemo Paul to Jos Buttler. Another no ball by Paul. Outside off, left alone.

71.5 2

Keemo Paul to Jos Buttler. 50 for Buttler, his 13th in Tests. One reason why you do not drop quality players, they will make you pay. Normally you do not see Buttler playing second fiddle to someone but he has done it really well here. His innings has been more about patience and he has crafted a wonderful half ton. He too would want to make it count. Flicks this delivery towards backward square leg and collects two to get to that milestone.

71.4 4

Keemo Paul to Jos Buttler. FOUR! Clever this! A dangerous shot but it comes good for Buttler here. Short and outside off, Buttler plays it late, he guides it through the gap in the slip cordon and a boundary results. 48 now Buttler is on, also the 200 is up. In a strong position now are England.

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. Another bouncer this time it is outside off. Stokes does the right thing by evading it.

69.6 1

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. OUT! No, it has been signaled as a no ball as Joesph has nothing behind the line. Ben Stokes though has already made his way back in the pavilion but now he has been called back. What a let off this is! This could prove very costly. A short ball and it is outside off, Stokes looks to drag his pull, the ball though skids through and even before the shot is completed, it hits his bat and goes uppishly back to the bowler. He takes a sharp catch. The Windies start celebrating, Stokes has almost made it back into the dressing room but then the umpire decides to check the front foot. Time for the replays and it show that Joseph has overstepped. However, it could be argued that once Stokes has left the field, he can't be called back but the the on-air commentators mention that the third umpire has just confirmed that the batsman could be called back before the next ball is bowled. Thanks to the change in laws. Big moment in the game this.

68.4 4

Roston Chase to Ben Stokes. FOUR! Fifty for Ben Stokes, he gets there in style! 17th Test fifty for him. He was shaky to begin with but once he got into his own, he has looked good. Right from the start, he has played with good intent on a pitch which has not been easy to bat on and has brought up a very crucial half ton. A knock of great character this. He needs to continue now and make it count. He gets a gift to get to that milestone. Short and outside off, Stokes goes back and slaps it through covers for a boundary.

DRINKS BREAK. England are stepping on the ante here. Buttler and Stokes have taken the visitors to a respectable position and the batting line-up slowly is regaining its lost form. Now, with Bairstow and Moeen in the tanks, the Brits might be thinking of 300 as a bare minimum.

65.2 0

Alzarri Joseph to Jos Buttler. Around off, defended to the leg side.

65.1 2

Alzarri Joseph to Jos Buttler. In the air but in the gap. Guess both the batsmen are signalling their intentions. Attack. A length ball outside off, Buttler gets on top of the bounce and punches it uppishly, but wide of mid off for a couple.

56.4 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. BEATEN! That was a beauty! Not a lot you can do there but just hope it misses the edge. Good length around off now due to the around the wicket angle, Stokes has to play at it. He does try to with a forward defense but then the ball shapes away and just about kisses the outside edge.

56.3 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Well played that one! This is around off, Stokes first thinks of blocking it but then the ball pitches and deviates away. Stokes is not drawn into the stroke, he pulls his bat out and leaves it.

55.5 1

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. Shortish again, it is pulled through square leg for a run. Stokes gets to the other end and then shakes his hand. It still might be stinging.

55.4 2

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. On the pads again, Stokes works it through square leg. The fielder at fine leg does not pick it and hence an easy couple for the batters. The ball actually hit the gloves of Stokes there, he seems to be in a little pain.

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. On the pads, Stokes looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads.

52.4 4

52.3 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Back of a length and on the stumps, it is kept out.

52.3 1

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. This however, looked convincing. On off, Stokes goes back and keeps it out.

51.3 4

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. FOUR! Almost drags it on! Very lucky that! This one comes back in late from outside off, Stokes looks to cover the swing by playing it with an angled bat. It though takes the inside edge and goes over the off pole and down to the fine leg fence. Stokes by no means has looked convincing after the break here.

51.2 0

Alzarri Joseph to Ben Stokes. Quicker and straighter in line, Stokes looks to flick but is beaten for pace. Hits him high on the thigh pad.

50.3 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. NOT OUT! Clipping the top of middle! Umpire's call it is. Not a bad review in the end. The good thing is that they do not lose a review. Keemo starts this from outside off, it comes back in. Beats the inside edge of Stokes' bat. Hits him high on the pads. An appeal follows but the umpire shakes his head. Brathwaite goes for the review but the replays show that the on-field call stays.

Another review by the Windies! An appeal for LBW against Stokes has been turned down. Brathwaite has signaled the 'T'. Height will be the issue.

50.2 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. Angles this into the batter, Stokes tries to defend but gets an inside edge onto the pads.

50.1 0

Keemo Paul to Ben Stokes. A little too wide outside off, Stokes shoulders arms.

We are back for the final session. 40 overs to go so we are in for a long one. Jos Buttler will be on strike and he will face Keemo Paul. Here we go...

... Day 1, Session 3 ...

England need a partnership. This is a pitch prepared for Stuart Broad, Mark Wood and Ben Stokes. Get through the final session, try and get close to 250-300 by tomorrow and you might well avoid a brownwash. Join us back at 3 pm local (1930 GMT).

The pitch has plenty in it. The grass is helping the seamers and the Windies are bowling their hearts out. If any criticism, it would be their flirting with the wide lines outside off. Agreed, that they are playing with the batsmen's patience but if they keep bowling in the areas just outside off, might as well cause more trouble.

After Lunch, the hosts threatened to finish it off quickly with wickets of Burns and Denly. But Root and Buttler dug in and almost saw off the session, when just before the break, Alzarri removed the English skipper. The home side might really start dreaming of batting tonight itself - Bairstow and Moeen to come next, if the Buttler-Stokes pair is dislodged cheaply.

68/3 in 24 overs in this session. Another one in Windies' favour. Their persistence is paying dividends and the game of patience is being won by the home side.

End of Over : 50 3 Runs ENG: 114/4

Ben Stokes walks in at number 6, replacing his skipper.

47.5 W

Alzarri Joseph to Joe Root. OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! That surely must have been a feather there. The appeal wasn't a loud one, also we here too did not hear anything. Windies will rejoice though as they have got the English skipper. A soft dismissal to be honest. It is short and outside off, Root looks to cut with no foot movement. It takes the faintest of edges and goes to the keeper. A stifled appeal follows and the umpire agrees. Root also walks back without taking the review so there surely might be an edge. His poor string of scores continues and a crucial breakthrough for Windies. This is Root's 7th consecutive innings without a half century for Root, his worst run in Test cricket so far. Also, replays later on show, it is the toe-end and not the outside edge.

47.4 0

Alzarri Joseph to Joe Root. Another one on the fuller side but once again it is outside off. Root does not fiddle with it.

39.6 0

Kemar Roach to Jos Buttler. Make it one more leave to end the 40th over. Very slow progress from England. They are caught in a shell, not going anywhere. Where is the New England? Where is the new positive approach? Either they are flashing blindly or just looking to block. Rotating the strike might help them a bit.

38.1 wd

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Five wides! Bonus runs. England won't mind it. Paul loses his line completely and slips a length ball way down the leg side. No chance for Root or the keeper to get anywhere near it. It runs away happily to the fence.

Drinks break. Another testing hour for England where they lost a couple of wickets. The top 3 are back in the hut and now it's all up to Joe Root and the experienced middle order to revive things. The Windies bowlers have been simply superb with their efforts and are keeping the touring team on the edge. We're hoping more of the same in the next hour.

End of Over : 38 4 Runs ENG: 77/3
37.6 4

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. EDGE AND FOUR! Again! Full and outside off, Buttler goes at it with hard hands, it goes off the outer half and over the point fielder and into the fence.

37.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. Wide outside off, Buttler lets it go this time.

37.4 0

36.6 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. A testing over comes to a close.

36.5 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Edged but safe! Exemplary delivery. Landing on a length around off and nipping away, Root is stuck inside the crease as he pushes inside the line. Gets a thick outside edge which falls in front of the first slip fielder. He loses his balance after that and nearly hurt the fielder standing next to him.

36.4 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Angles in a full ball on off, Root is on the front foot in defense. He is yet to get off the mark.

36.3 0

End of Over : 36 4 Runs ENG: 73/3
35.6 4

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. DROPPED AND FOUR! Gabriel can't believe it! Hetmyer is the culprit. He probably should have left it for the first slip fielder who would have had it easier. The tempter, full and outside off, Buttler can't resist and goes after it. The length however was not the right one to look for the drive and hence, the outside edge is induced. It flies in between second slip and first at a good height. Hetmyer in the former position jumps and stretches his left hand out but the ball kisses the fingertips and races over the outstretched hands of Darren at second slip towards the third man fence. It was difficult for Shimron but had he left it, Bravo at first slip, who is a little deeper might have had a better chance of catching it. Nevertheless, a reprieve for Buttler and he gets off the mark. He will surely want to make Windies pay for this now.

35.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Jos Buttler. A little short, aimed at the rib-cage. The batsman nudges it towards mid-wicket.

34.6 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. A wayward ball to end! Down the leg side, Dowrich dives and does well there. Except for the last ball, it was testing over. Also, the run rate now has dipped below 2 runs per over.

34.5 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. This time it is outside off, Root need not play at those.

34.4 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Right on the money once again! Length and around off, Root this time though defends it right off the middle.

34.3 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. This is very good bowling here! Keemo is bowling it nice and full, letting the ball do its bit. The line is also on off, swings away, finds Root's outside edge and goes along the ground to point.

34.2 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Another outswinger but it is outside off, left alone.

34.1 0

Jos Buttler walks out to the middle.

33.2 W

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. OUT! Three reds and now England too have lost a review. Not sure why Denly reviewed there, that was plumb, only bat could save him. Windies won't care though as one wicket has brought another for them. Both the set batsmen are back in the hut now. Length delivery this, it is pitched around off and it skids through. Denly goes back and tries to keep it out but ends up playing outside the line. The ball hits the front pad and an appeal, a loud one from the slip cordon but a tame one from Gabriel. The umpire though raises his finger. Denly after a chat with his skipper goes for the review. Replays show that the on-field call is the right one. England suddenly in a spot of bother here.

Denly has been given out LBW! Is this the start of a collapse? Wait... Denly wants a second look. There comes the signal for the review...

33.1 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. Ouch! A good in-dipper from outside off, Denly tries to keep it out somehow but misses to get hit near the box.

End of Over : 33 0 Runs ENG: 69/2
32.6 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. BEATEN! A good delivery to end a very good over. The away-swinger this time, it is also full and outside off. Root eager to get off the mark has a go at it but gets beaten. Not the right shot to play so early in the innings.

32.5 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Outside off, left alone.

32.4 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Howzzat? Not given! Going down leg! But a very good delivery that. Just ahead of a length and this one comes back in a long way. Root is surprised by the movement and fails to adjust to the swing. It hits him on the pads. A huge appeal follows but the umpire shakes his head. Hawk Eye confirms it is going down leg.

32.3 0

Keemo Paul to Joe Root. Outside off is the first delivery to Root. He lets it be.

Joe Root is the new man in.

32.2 W

Keemo Paul to Rory Burns. OUT! No bat there and that is PLUMB! Excellent use of the review there by the Windies and Keemo Paul once again strikes very early in his spell. Good bowling change too. He bowls it slightly fuller and around middle, Burns looks to play across the line which brings about his down fall. The ball straightens a touch, seems to have gone past the bat and hits the front pad. An appeal follows but the umpire shakes his head. Keemo Paul convinces his captain to go for the review. Brathwaite signals the 'T'. Replays show nothing on Ultra Edge and three reds on Hawk Eye. Burns gritty knock comes to an end and both the openers back in the hut.

Review time! A huge appeal for an LBW has been turned down. Burns is the man in question and the Windies have gone for the review. There may have been an inside edge otherwise it looks close.

32.1 0

Keemo Paul to Rory Burns. Starts off with a length ball outside off, Burns plays inside the line and gets beaten. However, there was daylight between bat and ball there.

Keemo Paul is into the attack.

End of Over : 32 1 Runs ENG: 69/1
31.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. BEAUTY! Angled into the batsman which means Denly has to play but gets it to straighten after pitching it on a length. Denly ends up playing inside the line, luckily for him, it whizzes past the outside edge.

31.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. Outside off, left alone.

31.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. On the shorter side outside off, Denly looks to cut but does not time it. It goes on the bounce to point. Missed out on an opportunity to hit a boundary there.

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Nope! It is on the stumps but it is a little too straight. It is tucked around the corner for a single.

31.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. The same story! The last one was outside off, he continues it with one down the leg side. Burns misses the flick. The next one is probably going to be outside off.

End of Over : 31 4 Runs ENG: 68/1

27.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. On the shorter side outside off, Burns evades it.

27.1 5

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. FIVE OVERTHROWS! Gabriel is not happy and rightly so, there was no need of a shy there but it is the norm now-a-days. The ball comes into your hands, the players tend to have a go. Slightly shorter in length around off, Denly pushes it towards point and goes for a run. Paul picks the ball up and throws it at the non-striker's end. Misses, nobody backing up and a boundary. First runs of this session, it also brings up the 50 for England.

Shannon Gabriel to bowl from the other end.

End of Over : 27 0 Runs ENG: 46/1
26.6 0

Kemar Roach to Rory Burns. Finally makes the batsman play! On off this time, goes straight on. Burns looks to defend but it goes off the inner half towards square leg. A maiden to begin with by Roach but not a threatening one.

Kemar Roach to Rory Burns. A little outward movement but the ball is outside off, Burns leaves it alone.

We are back for the afternoon session! Rory Burns and Joe Denly will resume from where they left off before the break. The former will be on strike and he will be facing Kemar Roach. Four slips in place. Here we go...

... Day 1, Session 2 ...

'A collapse after Lunch', predicts Predicto Praky sitting over here. Well, only time will tell whether that will happen. Join us back in a while...

Roach was sensational. Gabriel was outstanding. Joseph was sharp. While Paul was nippy. But the fielding was slippery which cost the Windies a wicket or two. The drop of Jennings did not cost the home side much in terms of runs but the time he spent at the crease negated the effect of the new ball.

A session which did not have anything but had everything. Confused? Well, that has exactly what had happened here. A look at the scorecard tells you that nothing has happened - 46 runs in 26 overs. But look at the chances created, well, one would say, they should have been 5 or 6 down.

End of Over : 26 2 Runs ENG: 46/1
25.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. A length ball outside off, Joe looks to defend but the ball moves away and beats the outside edge. LUNCH ON DAY 1!

25.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. THE BALL HAS HIT THE GLOVE BUT IT IS NOT IN CONTACT WITH THE HANDLE! What might have been a wicket for the Windies, turns out to be a lost review. A sharp short ball, around middle, Denly looks to tuck but the ball comes in with the angle and goes off something behind. Shane Dowrich dives to his left and appeals and forces Brathwaite to go for the review when his appeal is turned down. Okay. Here comes technology. Snickometer shows a spike when the ball hits the glove but it is not in contact with the bat handle! Tough luck for the home side. Jason Holder in the dressing room is not happy. They lose a review...

Is that the second wicket? Certainly Dowrich seems to think so. He alone has compelled Kraigg Brathwaite to go for the review for a caught behind. Let's see...

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. A short ball outside off, too wide to be played, JD initially looks to cut, but then tries to pull. The second thought is a bit half-hearted and he wants to pull out of the pull but is beaten instead.

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. EDGED, SHORT! Gabriel is not happy. He wants his slip cordon to come up a pace or two. Full an outside off, Joe looks to drive but the away movement induces an outside edge. However, it does not carry to John Campbell at second slip.

23.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. A mild shout for LBW. Turned down. On a good length outside off, Denly looks to tuck it to the leg side but misses and is hit high on the thighs. That explains the reason for turning the LBW shout down.

Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. WIDE. Oh dear. Too wide. Just too wide. Almost lands outside the pitch outside off, then deviates further away off the seam. Left alone.

21.5 2

Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. The scoreboard moves after a string of 13 dots. Full and down the leg side, RB flicks it behind square leg. The ball is aerial and there is a man stationed at square leg for the catch. But the ball is well away from him. Good football skills from Kemar Roach as he races to his right from fine leg, puts out his right foot and stops the ball. Two runs taken.

21.4 0

Joe Denly walks in at number 3, replacing Jennings.

16.1 W

Keemo Paul to Keaton Jennings. OUT! Edged and taken this time! At long last, after what seemed like endless hours, with every minute promising a wicket, the Windies have got one. Keaton Jennings was not using his feet much throughout this innings and this time, he has to use them to transport himself back to the pavilion. The change of ball does the trick. Full and outside off, there to be driven, Jennings cannot resist. He goes for the drive, after being so patient for 76 minutes. But no feet movement brings about his downfall. A thick edge is induced on the outside and it goes straight into the bread basket of Darren Bravo at first slip. No mistake made and Paul is the first to strike.

Drinks break. A pretty slow hour. Both batsmen are jittery at the crease. They have batted for 16 overs but are not looking comfortable at all. One can smell a wicket anytime the way these two are batting. Windies have bowled really well minus any luck. One catch has gone down. Another didn't carry while an lbw wasn't referred. Will the lady luck smile on them post this mini-break? Meanwhile, the umpires weren't happy with the ball and have changed it. Keemo Paul is inserted into the attack as well.

End of Over : 16 4 Runs ENG: 30/0

14.5 0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. Beaten again, on the drive this time. Roach finally manages to tempt Jennings into a drive but the away movement means that it misses the outside edge. Where are the feet, Jennings? Continues to struggle in a similar fashion again and again.

13.5 2

Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. This time it has been nicely flicked away behind square leg for a couple of runs.

13.4 0

Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. JUST SHORT! A touch short in length around leg, shaping in a bit, Burns tries to flick but it comes off the upper half of his bat and loops towards Hetmyer at deepish short leg. He gets down low but it falls in front of his outstretched left hand. Maybe, he needs to stand a step ahead at least.

13.3 0

Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. Identical to the last delivery, this time Rory gets on top of his bounce and plays it down to covers.

13.2 0

12.1 0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. Beauty from Roach! He's working in good areas now. Keeping it on and around off and getting it to either move or straighten off the seam. Jennings tries his best to nick but misses. Yes, the way he is flirting inside the line sooner rather than later he will nick one.

End of Over : 12 5 Runs ENG: 20/0
11.6 4

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Four leg byes! Wrong line from the bowler, serves it down the leg side, and Burns tries to flick it. Fails and it runs away off his pads past the diving keeper for a boundary at fine leg.

11.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Beaten all ends up! Change of angle from the bowler. Comes from over the wicket and slants across a back of a length ball around off. It leaves the left-hander after landing who is stuck inside the crease and caught pushing inside the line. Luckily doesn't edge it.

11.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Angling away from the batsman, on a length outside off, Burns shuffles across the stumps and pushes it towards mid off.

10.2 0

Kemar Roach to Rory Burns. This one is hurled wide outside off, a relatively easy leave for the batsman this time.

10.1 0

Kemar Roach to Rory Burns. Peach of a delivery! You just cannot play those. No matter how good you're as a batsman. Roach angles in a length ball around off from 'round the wicket, Burns tries playing the trajectory but it then nips away off the surface to beat the outside edge.

End of Over : 10 1 Runs ENG: 13/0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. In the channel outside off, left alone. End of an eventful over.

8.5 4

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. EDGED! DROPPED! FOUR! All happening here. Roach bends his back to generate extra lift from the surface. It's around off and straightens from there as Jennings stays back to play across the line. It flies off the outside edge to second slip where Roston Chase drops a sitter. It bursts through his hands and goes behind for a boundary. Keaton riding his luck here. Can he make this innings of his count?

8.4 0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. The ball is too wide on the off side for the batsman to make any contact.

8.3 0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. Shout for an lbw! Not given by the umpire. After bowling a few deliveries wide outside off, Kemar gets a full ball to swerve in sharply off the surface. Jennings has to play at it, tries defending with a straight bat but seems to have missed. He is rapped on the pads but the umpire shakes his head after the appeal is made. Looks like an inside edge but the Ultra Edge fails to detect anything. Hmm... Hawk Eye later on reflects three reds. Windies have missed a trick here. Missing Holder already? He had been brilliant with the use of DRS.

8.2 0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. Away swinger. Goes very full but the line is too wide again. Keaton is happy to leave it.

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Wide down the leg side, the batsman leaves it alone.

7.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Catch it is the shout, nothing doing. Gabriel gets a good length ball to jag back into the batsman. Burns tries to flick but misses and it loops in the air off his thigh pad. The short leg catches it and then has a shy at the striker's end. Misses. No edge there so the shout of a catch it from the bowler was more of a reaction.

Kemar Roach to Rory Burns. Fine delivery. Fuller and around off, straightening a bit after landing, Keaton tries defending with a straight bat but it goes off the outer half to cover-point. A single taken, first off Roach's bowling this morning.

Shannon Gabriel to Rory Burns. Howzaat, screams my colleague over here! Nothing from the bowler. Nothing from the keeper. And nothing from the umpire obviously. A delivery bowled at 147 kph, slanting down from a length, Burns is late in putting his bat to it and takes a blow on his pads. Easily going down, my colleague maybe didn't watch it closely. Concentrate.

Wait is over! Sun is shining now. The covers are off and the players are returning on the field. Shannon Gabriel to finish his over...

Update 1024 local - It's turned very dark out there! Wait on, the umpires get together and have called for the covers. It's not raining yet and this seems like a precautionary step. And as I'm typing... it has started to RAIN! Strong wind is blowing across the stadium and let's hope it will take away all the angry-looking clouds. Currently, the players are back in the hut. Stay tuned for latest updates...

0.1 0

Kemar Roach to Rory Burns. Starts with a length delivery from 'round the wicket. There is a hint of inward shape after it lands outside off and Burns makes a watchful leave.

Time for the national anthems then. First England's, followed by the hosts'. Time now for the game to begin. Kemar Roach to start off proceedings. Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings will open the innings for the Windies. Burns to face. Here we go!

Joe Root says that he probably would have batted first and now sees this as a big opportunity to get a good score with the bat. On the team news, informs that Sam Curran has been left out. Adds that Keaton Jennings comes back at the top of the order to lend some balance to the team. On Mark Wood's inclusion, Root says that he is someone who can be hostile at times and in the last few days, he has shown great pace and rhythm, which has strengthened his case. Does not feel that there is any confusion within the team, and adds that everyone is pretty sure about their roles.

Kraigg Brathwaite says that it is one of the better pitches in the Caribbean and is looking forward to make use of the early morning moisture. Informs that Keemo Paul is a straight swap for Jason Holder, with like-to-like qualities. Stresses that the Windies are keen to win 3-0 and will not let the intensity drop.

TOSS - Time for the spin of the coin. The Windies' captain for this game, Kraigg Brathwaite, tosses the coin up in the air. TAILS is the call from Joe Root, but HEADS IT IS. WINDIES ELECT TO BOWL FIRST.

PITCH REPORT - Daren Ganga has a look at the pitch and informs us that the average first innings score at this venue is just 329. Sees plenty of grass and adds further that in the last 6 games, 4 have produced results. Reckons that fast bowlers will receive plenty of help from this track, with batting proving to be a challenge. Finishes by saying that toss may not be too much of a factor.

WEATHER - Rain. Forecast for all 5 days. But that is future tense. As far as present tense is concerned, it is bright and crystal clear with the sun shining beamingly. I am sure no one will mind if the forecast is wrong, would any?

What is life without ifs or buts? Same goes to Windies and cricket. They look poised to make a brownwash. But can they? They have not won three Tests in a row since 2012-13 (when they beat New Zealand, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe for six consecutive victories). Their last whitewash in a series of three matches or more came against England in 1985-86. Hmmm...

Sammy - the name itself inspires the Windies. Won two WT20 titles under him. It was at this very venue that Shannon Gabriel claimed a 13-wicket haul, last year. Add to it, England have never played a Test here. Their last visit came in 2010, when they beat Sri Lanka in the semi-final of the World T20. All the factors point to a 3-0 possibility, don't they?

A brownwash - ever heard of this term? Not that many times, because probably it rarely comes into play. But here we are, in 2019, under an inspired Jason Holder, Windies stand a brilliant chance of beating England 3-0. Only issue for them is that they are without skipper Holder - their leading run-getter in this series. Will it motivate them even more or will that give a chance for Ashes hopefuls in the English side? Either ways, we hope that we are not robbed off an entertaining game. Hello and a warm welcome to the third and final Test between Windies and England at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St. Lucia.

End of Over : 47.2 WI: 154/10

England now will look to build on this lead and with a lot of time left in the game, they will now look to bat the Windies out of this game. The hosts on the other hand, need to pick wickets and quickly as one would believe batting 4th on this wicket will not be easy. Is there another fightback in store for us or will England continue their domination? Stay tuned to find out.

Dowrich and Roach did try to fight back with a frustrating 41-run stand for England but once the former fell, the lower-order did not contribute a lot, giving England a huge lead of 123.

After being bundled out for 277 earlier today, the visitors did not have the best of times with the new ball. The Windies openers looked at ease and added 57 for the first wicket. However, a lapse in concentration for Brathwaite began the procession. Campbell fell on the very next ball and after that Wood ran through the middle order. From 57 for 2, Windies were staring down the barrel at 104 for 7.

End of an excellent performance by England. Actually by Mark Wood and Moeen Ali I should write. It is the former who leads them off the field as he bags a fifer, his first in Tests and that too on return. A huge round of applause for him and he deserves every bit of it.

47.2 W

Mark Wood to Shannon Gabriel. OUT! BOWLED! Wood wins the race of the fifers! Full and straight, perfect delivery to a tail-ender, Gabriel swings and misses. The ball hits the stumps and ENGLAND HAVE A LEAD OF 123.

Shannon Gabriel is the next man in.

46.3 W

Moeen Ali to Alzarri Joseph. OUT! In the air... what a catch. Ho ho ho, that is a screamer there. Ali tosses this up around off, Joseph goes for the slog but ends up playing it against the angle. He ends up getting it off the outer half. It goes high in the air towards mid off. The batter though would feel, he might just get away with this one. Broad however, runs backwards and then sticks his right hand out and the ball sticks. He then tumbles over and gets up with a big smile. He is now mobbed by his teammates. 4th for Moeen Ali and they are now one wicket away from wrapping this innings.

46.2 0

Moeen Ali to Alzarri Joseph. Angles this away from off, Joseph looks to defend but gets beaten.

46.1 1

End of Over : 46 6 Runs WI: 147/8
45.6 2

Stuart Broad to Alzarri Joseph. SAFE. Got to say, not the best piece of technique from Bairstow but that is how modern keepers do it. The ancient technique teaches you to collect the ball behind the stumps but not in this age. Full and around middle, Joseph swings hard but the ball swings in and goes off the inner half of the bat towards fine leg. The batsmen return for the second and the throw is a good one too. But Bairstow collects it in front of the stumps, then turns around and whips the bails off. It is referred upstairs and replays show that the extra second taken by Bairstow has given Alzarri enough time to make it in. Had Bairstow stayed behind the stumps, waited for the throw to come and then disturbed the stumps in front of him, he might have affected the run out.

RUN OUT APPEAL! Has Alzarri made it back in time? Or has Bairstow's poor technique cost England?

45.2 W

Stuart Broad to Shane Dowrich. OUT! Superb review from Broad and England and Dowrich is adjudged LBW! First wicket for Broady. It is landed on a good length around off and Dowrich gets across to defend. But this does not come in with the angle. Instead it straightens slightly after pitching and squares Shane up as he looks to defend. Is hit on the pads and Broad appeals but the umpire is unmoved. Broad feels this is out and convinces Root to go upstairs. Root does so and lo! Hawk Eye shows it to be dead plumb! An enterprising stand of 41 comes to a close. Fine knock from Dowrich. Windies trail by 132 now.

Stuart Broad is adamant this is out LBW. Joe Root gives his consent for the review. Where is the impact? That is the key question. Ian Bishop whispers 'NOT OUT', in the commentary box.

45.1 4

Stuart Broad to Shane Dowrich. FOUR! That is wonderfully timed. Just a flick from Dowrich! A length ball, a bit too straight, Shane gets across his stumps and with efficient wristwork, nudges it behind square leg. Fine leg has no chance. The stand moves to 41 from 64 balls.

End of Over : 45 6 Runs WI: 141/7
44.6 4

Moeen Ali to Kemar Roach. FOUR! Outside off, Roach slashes at it, it goes off the outer half through backward point. Stokes gives it a chase but he had no chance there. Frustrating runs these for England. Windies though would hope the two can continue.

44.5 1

Moeen Ali to Shane Dowrich. Nicely driven, nicely fielded! Flighted ball around off, it is stroked towards mid off. The fielder there runs to his left, dives and stops it. Only a run taken.

40.2 0

Moeen Ali to Shane Dowrich. NOT OUT! Dowrich's foot is down! Good work though by Bairstow. This is bowled flatter and outside off, Dowrich first thinks of cutting it but then bails out of the shot. He then seems to have lifted his foot and Bairstow whips the bails off and appeals. The umpire takes it upstairs. The third umpire takes a look at quite a few replays from different angles. In one angle it shows seems that the foot is off when the bails come off but there is nothing conclusive. Hence, it is ruled in favour of the batsman.

A huge appeal for a stumping has been referred upstairs. Dowrich is the man in question. The English players do not seem that excited.

A short ball, outside off, the cherry lands on either a crack or a grassy area. Shoot! Miles over every human being on the ground. Directly bounces 10 yards behind Bairstow. Into the fence behind. The stand moves to 14 and the deficit is now 159.

No one in the deep and it races away. 100 up for the Windies but they have lost 6 wickets. They trail by another 174. Also, Wood seems to be tiring here, the zip seems to be missing in the last couple of overs or so. Probably this will be his last over for this spell.

Mark Wood to Keemo Paul. FIVE WIDES! That was quick! Bouncer and it bounces above the batsman's head as he goes for the pull. Bairstow behind has no chance as it is down leg as well. He dives with one hand stretched upwards, does get a glove to it but is unable to stop it. Races to the fine leg fence. The umpire first signals it as byes but then changes his decision.

Mark Wood to Darren Bravo. OUT! Four-fer for Mark Wood! Darren Bravo's resistance comes to an end. Excellent bowling this, the short ball on the last delivery to push the batsman on the back foot and then the fuller one to get him out. It is on off, Bravo is neither forward nor back as he tries to keep it out with a tentative push. The ball takes the outside edge and goes to the right of Root at first slip. The England skipper, reacts late but manages to hold on, in the second attempt. Into the lower-order now are the Englishmen.

We are back for the final session. Once again we are in for a long one as there are around 42 overs to go. Shane Dowrich will join Darren Bravo in the middle. Mark Wood has five balls to go. Here we go...

... Day 2, Session 3 ...

England are red-hot right now. Just Shane Dowrich to come in the form of a proper recognized batsman. After that, it is just the bowlers. Boy, do we daresay that Keaton Jennings and Rory Burns could be batting for the second time in 2 days. Join us back at 3 pm (1900 GMT). Nearly 42 overs left, so plenty of time for more wickets!

Unlike the Windies, the new ball could not quite work for England. They were getting very desperate and Campbell's counter-attack led to more frustration. Then, that masterstroke from Root to get Moeen Ali paid rich dividends. At 57/0, things looking down and out, and how tables have turned. First Moeen struck twice in an over and then Wood struck thrice in the span of 15 balls to leave Windies reeling.

15 wickets have fallen in this match now, in 5 sessions. 11 of those have come today itself. This Test has suddenly kicked up alive. Who says that 277 is not competitive? They might have to eat their words!

Wow-a-wow-a-wow. 5 wickets for 17 runs in 53 balls. Moeen Ali. Mark Wood. Enough said.

27.1 W

Mark Wood to Shimron Hetmyer. OUT! Dropped, no caught! Wood has another one and Windies have half their side back in the hut. Hetmyer falls in the last over before Tea. Once again the pace and the zip off the surface proves to be a Windies batsman's downfall. It is slightly short and outside off, Hetmyer who was beaten a couple of times before this, finally edges one as he again hangs his bat out again. The ball takes a fat outside edge and goes to Root at first slip. He takes it on the second attempt. Hetmyer starts walking back but then is asked to wait as they want to check for the no ball. Replay shows it is fine. Hetmyer has to continue his walk back and he is followed by the England players as it is TEA ON DAY 2!

End of Over : 27 3 Runs WI: 74/4

Mark Wood to Roston Chase. OUT! Two-in-two for Wood! Why was he held back for 21 overs? His sheer pace is doing the trick for England. Roston chase bags a golden duck. Pace and bounce here gets the better of the tall batsman. It is on off and it skids through. Chase tries to defend but the ball flies off the outside edge and goes towards fourth slip. Burns takes a sharp catch. Windies are 59 for 4 from 57 for 0. They trail by 218 more.

Roston Chase is the new man in.

21.5 W

Bowls it full and around off, Hope looks to drive but ends up playing inside the line. The ball flies of the outside edge and towards gully. Burns takes it. Wood already seems to make a difference here. The X-factor England were missing seems to be visible here in Wood's first five balls. Windies now in big trouble here.

18.4 W

Moeen Ali to John Campbell. OUT! Two in two for England! And it is not Broad. Not Anderson. But Moeen. Out of nowhere. Both openers dismissed in quick succession. Pretty straight ball, fuller in length, Campbell comes forward and plays all around it, looking to flick. Misses and that looks plumb. Umpire Dharmasena thinks long and hard and then raises his finger! Campbell has a chat with Hope and takes the review. Well, replays suggest that it might be a bad call. Because one could see the leg stump. And Hawk Eye does not justify his call either. Crashing into leg. Wicket and review, both lost. The match kicks into life again. All of a sudden, Holder-less Windies trail by 220 runs with 8 wickets in hand.

Gone next ball! However, Campbell has requested for a review on the LBW...

Shai Hope walks in at number 3, replacing Brathwaite.

18.3 W

Moeen Ali to Kraigg Brathwaite. OUT! Caught! A wicket out of the blue! What a wonderful field placement. Just one man out in the deep on the leg side. And Brathwaite exhibits his fielding coaching skills to perfection. Finds that man and hands him some catching practice. Only James Anderson was stationed in the deep - at widish long on, almost near mid-wicket. Brathwaite comes down the track and looks to go straight. However, with the ball drifting, the bat turns in his hand and goes towards Anderson. He comes running in a few paces and takes it comfortably. The 57-run stand is broken at last.

18.2 0

James Anderson to John Campbell. Once again, Anderson hits the length which is not that good on this wicket. Campbell misses the forward defense and gets hit on the pads.

15.5 1

James Anderson to John Campbell. NO BALL! Oversteps in the pursuit of more pace. Not a lot of times do you see Anderson overstep. Down the leg side, JC looks to flick but misses.

15.3 0

James Anderson to John Campbell. Another decent delivery! However, Anderson is bowling a little short here. Not short actually but shorter then he should bowl. The in-dipper on middle, Campbell looks to play it with a straight bat but misses to get hit on the pads. Due to the bounce here, all these are going over.

15.2 0

James Anderson to John Campbell. On the off stump, Campbell goes hard at the ball but ends up getting it off the inner half towards mid on.

James Anderson to John Campbell. NO REVIEW. Root has been timed out. Good that he was. Hawk Eye clearly states - PITCHING OUTSIDE LEG. On a shortish length, Campbell missed his tuck again and was hit on the pads. Anderson appealed but this time umpire Dharmasena's finger was in his pocket. Root wanted to go for the review but Anderson was not sure where it pitched. Almost, at the last moment, Joe signalled for the review but umpire Dharmasena informed him that he was timed out. Meanwhile, a leg bye has been stolen too. What an over!

Another LBW review! This time by England! This looks not out now. Where did it pitch?

6.5 0

James Anderson to John Campbell. NOT OUT! It is going over! Did not see that coming, however, excellent use of the review there. A full delivery and on middle, it comes back in. Campbell looks to work it across the line but misses. It hits his front pad. An appeal follows and the umpire raises the finger after a thought. Campbell reviews. Replays show that the on-field call has to be overturned. John survives to fight another day and Anderson is not happy as he walks back in frustration.

Review time! Campbell has been adjudged LBW. He ahs taken the review. Looks out.

James Anderson to John Campbell. Aggression from Anderson there. He did not like being hit for those boundaries, no bowler does so. This is on a length and around off, Campbell pushes it back to the bowler. Anderson collects it and then throws it back towards the stumps.

6.3 6

James Anderson to John Campbell. SIX! All the way! Stylishly shot that one! On the shorter side and on middle, Campbell lifts his front leg up and then pulls it right off the meat. It goes all the way and over the square leg fence.

6.2 0

James Anderson to John Campbell. Drags his length back and bowls it on middle, Campbell looks to flick but is hit high on the thigh pad.

6.1 4

James Anderson to John Campbell. FOUR! Take that, says Campbell! On the fuller side, John says thank you very much, he extends his arms and lofts it over the bowler's head for a boundary. This is how he plays, he is naturally an attacking batsman.

End of Over : 6 1 Runs WI: 9/0
5.6 0

Stuart Broad to Kraigg Brathwaite. Very good from Broad this! Continues hitting the length around off, the ball pitches and moves away. Brathwaite ends up playing inside the line and gets beaten.

5.5 0

Stuart Broad to Kraigg Brathwaite. A little too full on off, Brathwaite with the angle works it to mid on.

5.4 0

Stuart Broad to Kraigg Brathwaite. Way too wide there to make the batsman play.

5.3 1

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. On the pads, Campbell is late on the pull shot, it goes off the thigh pad towards fine leg. The batsmen take a leg bye.

4.6 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. A delivery wide outside off to end the over, left alone.

4.5 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Direct hit needed but Denly misses! Campbell was out by a long way there. First, a good delivery by Anderson, it was bowled on off and straightens. Squares Brathwaite up as he tries to defend. The ball goes off the outer half towards point. Brathwaite takes a few steps ahead. John thinking there is a run is quick off his blocks. Brathwaite though sends him back. Trying to turn back, John slips. He has no chance to make it back in now as the fielder has the ball in his hands. Joe has a shy but luckily for Campbell he misses.

4.4 4

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. EDGY FOUR! Windies won't mind though. On the fuller side of things, moves away. Brathwaite pushes at it tentatively, it goes off the outer half and through backward point for a boundary. First boundary in this session.

4.1 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. In the 5th stump channel, Brathwaite covers his off pole and keeps it out.

James Anderson to continue from the other end.

End of Over : 4 2 Runs WI: 4/0
3.6 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. This time he does the right thing. Leaves the ball which was bowled outside off. A testing first over by Broad.

3.5 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. Nicely bowled but not sure if Campbell needed to play at this one. The length maybe drew him into the shot. Slightly fuller and outside off, pitches and shapes away. Campbell goes after it but the ball whizzes past the outside edge.

3.4 2

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. First runs after Lunch! On the fuller side this, Campbell plants his front foot forward and then strokes it through covers. Takes two.

3.3 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. Lovely this from Broad. Two out of the three deliveries after Lunch have been brilliant. Closer to the off stump this time, it pitches and then shapes away. John plays for the original trajectory and gets beaten.

3.2 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. Length again but the line is a touch wide outside off, left alone.

3.1 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. A good delivery to begin with! Some extra bounce there. On the back of a length around off, Campbell goes back to defend. The ball however, hits the splice and goes towards point.

We are back for the afternoon session! Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell will resume their innings. The latter will be on strike and he will face and he will face Stuart Broad who will continue his spell. Here we go...

... Day 2, Session 2 ...

Safely negotiated. A tricky period of 18 balls or 10 minutes - whichever way you look at it. There was swing and seam movement but Brathwaite and Campbell have done well to negotiate both. Plenty still there in the pitch but the Windies will be happy that they are getting the best part of the day to bat on. Join us back at 12.40 pm local (1640 GMT).

End of Over : 3 0 Runs WI: 2/0
2.6 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Full and just outside off, defended back to the bowler. LUNCH ON DAY 2, WINDIES TRAIL BY 275!

2.5 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. The ball is too wide on the off side for the batsman to make any contact.

2.4 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Around middle, played straight to short mid-wicket.

In Anderson's previous over, on the last ball, a bit of an argument took place. Root wanted Mark Wood at fine leg to go squarer while Jimmy wanted him to be finer. Poor Wood, was playing musical chairs from left to right till Anderson was let known who is the boss.

2.3 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Full and just outside off, pushed back to the bowler.

2.2 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Outside off, moving away, Brathwaite shoulders arms.

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. Again, the same reaction from John to a similar ball.

1.5 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. Outside off, Campbell takes his bat away from the line.

1.4 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. That one thing which Keaton Jennings has done superbly throughout the tour. FIELDING AT SHORT LEG. He was excellent in the first Test, did nicely when he came in as a substitute in the last and here too, has started well. A length ball, around off, coming in with the angle, JC works it through square leg but Jennings at short leg dives to his right to make a wonderful stop.

1.3 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. A jaffa from Broad. On a good length outside off, John feels for it but the ball seams a long way after pitching, beating the outside edge.

1.2 0

Stuart Broad to John Campbell. Landed outside off, Campbell pulls his bat out of harm's way.

1.1 1

0.4 0

James Anderson to John Campbell. Outside off, left alone.

0.3 0

0.2 1

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Full and down the leg side, flicked towards fine leg for a single. The Windies are away...

0.1 0

James Anderson to Kraigg Brathwaite. Around middle, tucked straight to square leg.

End of Over : 105.2 ENG: 361/5

Earlier on, a ton from Root and 50s from Denly and Buttler ensured England can end the Test tour on a high. Windies will have to really bat well and show some composure. They cannot afford to think of a victory as that is farfetched. Let's see how the English pacers go about their bowling. Join us in a while.

Rather quickly than one would have expected but the declaration has been called. The intent was there from the start as Stokes was leading the charge. He will be stranded on 48* but that won't matter much. The visitors have batted for just 5.2 overs in the morning and set the Windies a target of 485.

105.2 W

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. OUT! End of an excellent innings from England's captain. Shannon Gabriel's prayers have been answered. It was a low full toss on middle, Joe looks to flick it but the bat turns in his hands. The ball goes uppishly to mid-wicket. Shimron Hetmyer puts in a dive towards his front and catches it. Surprisingly, with Root's departure, England have declared their innings at 361/5. Windies will need 485 runs to make it 3-0.

105.1 1

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. On the hips, Ben flicks it to square leg and takes a quick single.

End of Over : 105 9 Runs ENG: 360/4

End of Over : 104 6 Runs ENG: 351/4
103.6 4

102.5 4

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. FOUR BYES! Short all down the leg side, Stokes looks to pull but is too far for him. The keeper dives but cannot reach to it. The ball runs to the fine leg boundary.

100.2 0

Kemar Roach to Ben Stokes. Outside off, Stokes cuts it to short covers.

100.1 1

Kemar Roach to Joe Root. No wicket on the first ball for them unlike Day 3. Roach comes in from over the wicket and lands it on the leg side. Root helps it on its way way towards fine leg for one.

We are ready to begin Day 4. The players and the umpires are out to take center stage. Kemar Roach will bowl the first over while Root and Stokes will continue from where they left.

Darren Ganga with the Pitch Report. He starts off by saying that he expects some showers in the last two days. As for the surface, he feels that the lateral movement has increased day by day and with some variable bounce. Michael Atherton alongside him feels that the second new ball was a key and there was spice and pace still left on the wicket. He reckons that the game situation did not allow them to have a true indication of the wicket and he expects the story to be different when a full strength England comes out to bowl unlike the Windies bowling which was depleted due to injuries.

The only question that everyone wants the answer to is, when will England declare? They have managed to swell the lead to 448 and are comfortably in the driver's seat. One would feel that they will bat for an hour or so and then put the hosts to bat, keeping weather in mind. For the Caribbeans, they will hope to get a couple of wickets early and then try to wrap up the English lower order. However, seeing the way they batted in the first innings, things don't look pretty for them. Let's wait and see what this Test has in store for us.

... Day 4, Session 1 ...

No juice? Does that mean Windies can draw this Test? Well, anything is possible in cricket. But it will require a huge amount of determination and mental strength to do that. First, the Windies will have to wait for some more time for England to declare - at least an hour on Tuesday and then go about trying to bat out more than 5 sessions. Inconsistent bounce has started to appear and Day 4 might see the most of that. Join us at 10 am local (1400 GMT) on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, for all the action. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Stretching exercises going on for the Windies. They have toiled, toiled and toiled hard, being a bowler down, with Keemo Paul hurting his hamstring very early in the day. Gabriel and Roach bowled their hearts out but this pitch does not have as much juice in it now as it had yesterday.

A boring but proper day of Test match cricket. The fielding team strikes first ball, then meanders along, allowing the batsmen to settle and then the batters bed in. Burns, Jennings and Denly missed out on big knocks but not Root. He ensured that he stayed till the end of the day, forging a partnership with Buttler and then with Stokes, reaching that elusive hundred. Buttler played well and was looking good for his own century but got a jaffa from Roach - a rarity the whole day.

The Windies players get across and shake hands with Joe Root, acknowledging his effort - one of pure class. He has batted for a major part of the day and one would admit, taken the game beyond Windies' reach.

End of Over : 100 0 Runs ENG: 325/4

Has been off colour of late, losing his run-scoring hunger. For the record - 16TH TEST TON FOR ROOT! His third consecutive century after going past 50. Also, a hat-trick of tons in a dead rubber Test. 50-run stand comes up as well.

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Smart thinking. Slips in a yorker but Stokes is ready to dig it out. After the end of the over, Gabriel is seen smiling. Good to see that.

91.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Shortish and on middle, defended off the back foot.

91.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. This is terrific bowling. Shannon is still bowling with a lot of venom. Serves a shorter one around leg, Stokes turns early inside the crease with his pull shot but the ball arrives late. He's caught in an awkward and it comes off the splice of his bat. Stokes is down on his haunches and Gabriel like an angry uncle once again shoots some words at him. Root is smiling, like he always does. Frustration writ large on Shannon's face. Has really tried hard today without much success.

News filters in that both Darren Bravo and Keemo Paul are in the hospital, for scans regarding their respective injuries. The former will certainly be missed in the days to come if the Windies are to make a fist of this game.

91.3 2

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Digs in a short ball on middle, Stokes plays a mistimed pull shot in front of square leg and it drops in no man's land in the deep. They take a couple. 300 up for England and the Barmy Army is on its feet.

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Flashes and misses. In the channel outside off, Stokes throws his bat at it but fails to connect.

91.1 4

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Four byes! Gabriel steams in and lets out a sharp bouncer around leg. It shoots off the surface as Stokes leaves it and Dowrich fails to gather it even with a full length jump. Bonus runs for England as it runs behind for a boundary.

Roston Chase is back into the attack. Hang on, change of heart for Kraigg Brathwaite. Shannon Gabriel will continue from this end...

89.2 4

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. FOUR! No stopping this one! An overpitched delivery on off, Stokes brings down a straight bat and strokes firmly down the ground for a boundary. There was a mid off fielder seen giving the chase but he was never going to stop it.

89.1 1

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Fractionally short and on off, Root goes on his toes and taps it down in the vacant point region for a quick single.

End of Over : 89 11 Runs ENG: 284/4

Alzarri Joseph to Joe Root. Not quite a 5. 4 less than that. A short ball, around middle, Joe swivels and pulls it towards long leg for a run. Into the nervous 90s goes Root. 11 from the over.

0, 1, 2, 3, 4 so far. Will we get a 5?

88.5 4

Alzarri Joseph to Joe Root. FOUR! Badly lined, down the leg side, fuller in length, Root just tickles it to the fine leg fence.

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Ouch! Shortish and down the leg side, Stokes swivels and tries to pull but misses to get hit on the box. Gabriel shows no mercy, walks up to him and fires in a few verbal volleys. Show some compassion, Shannon.

87.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Fullish and outside off, driven off the front foot but it took the inside edge and deflected off his boots to covers.

87.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Bangs in a short delivery around leg, Ben is early into his pull shot and it comes off the upper half of his bat. Loops back but dies down quickly.

87.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. On a length around middle, tapped down on the leg side.

87.1 4

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Funny! Good length delivery on middle and leg, Root tickles it off his pads and it races through mid-wicket. Warrican (sub) chases it and then puts in a dive near the rope. However, he himself goes beyond the rope while the ball is still to roll towards the boundary line. Warrican then recovers and jumps out to stop the ball. Then he gets up, slips a bit before picking it up and releasing the ball to the keeper. The batsmen have run all four. Quite comical. The substitute seems under-cooked for this format. We have seen him struggling in the field quite a few times now. Hearing that it's a FOUR!

End of Over : 87 3 Runs ENG: 268/4

86.3 0

86.2 2

Kemar Roach to Joe Root. Excellent running. A half volley, around middle and leg, the skipper flicks it through square leg. Roston Chase gives it a good chase to his left, gets to the ball, fires in a good throw to Dowrich but Root puts the hard yards in and scampers back for the second.

86.1 0

Kemar Roach to Joe Root. Down the leg side, Root misses his flick.

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Beaten by pace this time. 146 kph. On a length outside off, BS looks to cut but misses.

85.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Got himself into a bit of tangle there, did Stokes. A short ball, around middle, Ben initially looked to pull but the ball zipped through, skidding off the surface and hurried onto him. BS was surprised and tried to check his shot but almost spooned a return catch to Gabriel.

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Around middle, pushed back to the bowler.

83.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Close shave! Full and around off, swinging in nicely, JR looks to flick but the ball goes off the inside edge and lands just short of short leg! Gabriel has more words to say now, to both batsmen and the response is a smile. Good to see.

83.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Full and wide outside off, the skipper reaches out to drive but misses again.

83.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Pull and a miss. Is that nervous 80-90s tag worrying Root? He is smiling but that seems to be a nervous one. Is the declaration round the corner? Has he been given a definite time before which the century needs to be made? But then, isn't he the captain and can decide for himself? The last few minutes have seen some atrocious shots, as if to desperately get to that century as quickly as he can. The length was not there for the pull but still Joe went for it. The ball just missed the inside edge and beat the off stump.

83.3 1

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Down the leg side, flicked through square leg for a single. More chatter between Stokes and Gabriel.

82.2 0

Kemar Roach to Joe Root. Extra bounce, on middle and leg, Root tries flicking but misses and wears it on his thigh pad.

82.1 0

End of Over : 82 1 Runs ENG: 255/4
81.6 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. That stays low. On a good length outside off, Stokes looks to cut but is defeated by the lack of bounce. The ball goes beneath the bat and bounces in front of Dowrich.

81.5 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Outside off, BS looks to drive but is a tad early into the shot. Mistimes it back to the bowler.

81.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Down the leg side, flicked towards short mid-wicket where a decent stop is made.

81.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. Full and outside off, Ben shoulders arms.

A bit of a delay. Seems like Stokes has just realized that he was worn different shoes on each foot. The umpires wisely have called for DRINKS. Around 19 overs left in the day. The focus will mainly be on whether Root can get to a century and even if he does, don't think the declaration will come out immediately. Maybe, some time after Drinks in the first session or second session tomorrow.

81.2 0

Shannon Gabriel to Ben Stokes. On a length, just around off, watchfully defended with a hop.

81.1 1

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Short and outside off, punched through point for a single. Some words of advice from Gabriel to Root.

Ben Stokes comes out to bat with the license to attack the bowlers.

80.5 W

Kemar Roach to Jos Buttler. OUT! Sound of timber! Roach has done it with the second new ball. Lands it on a length around off and gets it to straighten from there off the seam. Buttler tries flicking but misses as he plays down the wrong line and it goes on to tickle the off stump. The 107-run alliance is broken. England's lead is 23 short of 400!

80.4 2

Kemar Roach to Jos Buttler. In the air... SAFE! Short ball around off, sticking in the surface, Buttler is almost through his pull shot but then stops the followthrough of his bat. It catches the top edge and goes in front of square leg for a couple of runs.

Second new ball is taken. Kemar Roach to make the first use of it.

Kraigg Brathwaite to Jos Buttler. SAFE! Kraigg delivers a flatter full ball outside off, Buttler tries to sweep and for that he drags his back leg outside the crease. Dowrich collects the ball and breaks the stumps. Appeals and the square leg umpire takes it upstairs. The replays show that Jos' back leg returned well in time.

Stumping appeal has been referred upstairs...

Roston Chase to Joe Root. Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. They pick up a single.

68.4 4

Roston Chase to Joe Root. FOUR! 42nd Test fifty for Joe Root, his first after 7 innings... Coincidentally, his two last scores were also 7 and 7. A real gift to reach the milestone. Spinning down the leg side, Joe quietly but neatly deflects it off his pads to the fine leg fence. The English skipper needed this knock under his belt.

We're back for the final session. 34 overs left in the day's play. Windies would try to limit the damage while England would hope that both the set batsmen get to their individual milestones and further strengthen their position. It continues to be bright and sunny and the outside chance of a rain this evening looks to be entirely outside at the moment. Roston Chase to continue with the donkey's work...

... DAY 3, SESSION 3 ...

Will England bat for one more hour, get to 400 and then declare? Don't think so. Because they don't need to. There is a feast going on with two days left. Get in, settle yourself and enjoy. 400, 500, 600 - runs are just a number. Join us for the remaining part of today's feast at 3 pm local (1900 GMT). 34 overs left.

Often, one man's agony is another man's pride. After days of toil, England are finally playing like England in this Test. The top three have thrown away golden opportunities to sleep on a feather bed and Root and Buttler will aim to avert those mistakes. The skipper certainly has a century for the taking if he wants it - though every now and then we see a poor shot with the odd ball misbehaving.

The pitch has looked a bit on the flatter side while the bowling has looked the flattest of the series. The fact that the lead has already crossed 300 is not helping to boost the Windies' spirits and one need not be a rocket scientist to tell that they are simply waiting for a declaration.

29 overs, 99/1. It has been a toil for the Windies. The only good thing for them is that the over rate was a stunning 14.4/hour, definitely the best in the match, probably the best of the series! But other than that, nothing much to write for the hosts.

End of Over : 66 0 Runs ENG: 207/3

62.5 0

Roston Chase to Jos Buttler. NOT OUT. No bat, no glove, nothing. Outside leg, Buttler looked to paddle but missed. Dowrich appealed casually and umpire Tucker raised his finger! If this was surprising (because we did not hear anything), this is even more surprising - before Tucker's finger goes up, Buttler's bat goes up for the review signal! Nothing on Snickometer. Keep batting.

Bizarre. Windies put in a mild appeal for a catch down the leg side and umpire Tucker raises his finger. Buttler immediately goes for the review. Chase asks Dowrich who shakes his head!

DRINKS BREAK. Interesting from Roston Chase. Before bowling the second ball of this over, he paused. Because while he was about to bowl, he saw that Buttler was backing away a bit too far. Did not Mankade him though, but gave a silent warning for sure. Images of Keemo Paul doing it during an Under-19 World Cup game flash in front of us. Also, Sachithra Senanayake vs Jos Buttler happened once which brought a massive controversy.

45.5 W

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. OUT! Big wicket for the Windies. It was a much-needed one for them.

40.1 1

Kemar Roach to Joe Root. Fullish and on middle, angling down, Root is beaten in pace as he fails to flick. It goes off his pads to mid-wicket and they steal a leg bye.

Joe Root moves out at the last second and immediately apologizes. Not sure whether there was some movement once again near the sightscreen or Joe wasn't ready. Anyway, Roach has to reload. Not easy being a fast bowler.

End of Over : 40 7 Runs ENG: 125/2

39.4 4

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. FOUR! This is called educated edge. Why? Not sure. Maybe because you have the knowledge of what you are doing... Fullish and on off, at 150 kph, Denly tries driving it through the line but it takes the outer half of his bat and speeds through the gap between gully and slips for a boundary.

39.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. Half-shout for an lbw! Gabriel gets a length ball to jag back into the batsman from outside off. Denly tries to defend but misses. He is hit high on the pads, impact is outside off and it's too high as well.

39.2 2

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. A length ball on middle and leg, Denly flicks it through square leg and the fine leg fielder jogs across to his left to make the stop. Two more to the total.

38.5 4

Kemar Roach to Joe Denly. FOUR! Maiden Test fifty for Joe Denly! Has worked hard in this knock and richly deserves this applause from the crowd. Slightly overpitched, around off, Denly strides forward and plays a cracking straight drive for a boundary. Well played, can he convert it into a century now? Lead is 241.

38.4 0

Kemar Roach to Joe Denly. Big inswinger! Probably reversing now. Roach lands it on a good length outside off and it tails back in sharply. Denly has his front foot forward to cover the stumps as he makes a leave.

37.6 4

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. FOUR! That's uppish but wide of the mid-wicket fielder. Fuller length ball on middle, Denly flicks across the line but is a bit early into his shot. It loops in the air but goes wide of Chase. He runs behind it but the ball teasingly rolls past the rope.

37.5 1

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Gently taps it down in the gap on the leg side and runs across to the other end.

Some disturbance near the sightscreen. Joe Root is not happy. It's someone from the television crew roaming around. He has been asked to run away from that spot and he obliges. Root has a smile on his face as he takes his guard.

37.4 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Too full and on middle, Joe leans forward and across before pushing it down towards mid-wicket.

37.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Misses out! A low full toss wide outside off, Root stretches out for this one but fails to middle his shot. Clearly out of form!

37.1 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Starts with a good length delivery in the channel outside off, Root allows it through to the keeper.

We're back. The players are also back. Time for another two-hour dose of riveting cricket. The way this surface has offered something every single minute has kept us and the batsmen on the edge of their seats. Given the fact that the Englishmen are ahead by a big margin, they are not under pressure and when there is no pressure, the batsmen usually get away in spite of being uncertain. Shannon Gabriel to bowl first up...

... DAY 3, SECOND SESSION ...

With the lead inching closer to 250, this probably is the final session for the home side to try and bounce back in the game. They need to try and restrict England's lead under 300, else the brownwash will only be a dream. Join us back at 12.40 pm local (1640 GMT) for the second session.

England will not mind this passage of play one bit. The openers failed to make use of this last batting opportunity but Denly and Root have looked largely untroubled. That is partly due to the match situation and partly due to the inconsistent bowling. There is still enough on this pitch for the faster bowlers but the Windies are crippled, having lost Keemo Paul early in the morning.

A wicket first ball would not have been expected by the Windies themselves. But they hardly failed to make use of the gift given by Rory Burns. They picked up 2 wickets in this session, both to soft dismissals but have conceded 89 runs. The fielding has been below par, with Denly put down by Hetmyer while the bowling has been largely inconsistent. Once in a blue moon, the balls have hit a grassy patch or a crack and then deviated. Otherwise, it is mostly outside off and been ignored.

Umpire Rod Tucker has a pretty serious discussion with captain Kraigg Brathwaite. There were a few heated exchanges between the players in this session but nothing looked like going over the top - unless there was something and Tucker might be wanting to point it out. As far as the game and session are concerned, meandering ones for the Windies.

End of Over : 37 1 Runs ENG: 108/2

33.6 1

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. NO BALL! A late call from umpire Dharmasena. So late that Rod Tucker has not heard it as well and is starting to walk towards the other end, assuming that the over is done.

27.1 W

Alzarri Joseph to Keaton Jennings. OUT! BOWLED AROUND HIS LEGS! That is some way to lose a wicket. Pitched outside leg and Jennings gets a good stride forward to flick. But he is not at all to the pitch of the ball. Perhaps he expects the ball to come around middle. However, it is not coming in that much. He misses his flick and the ball hits his back thigh, which barely moves. Now comes the misfortune. The ball then deflects onto the stumps. That is sheer bad luck. He was dismissed in a similar fashion against India in the first Test back home. For a change, Jennings gets dismissed in a manner other than driving and edging. The 54-run stand is broken and England are effectively 196/2!

Alzarri Joseph is back on. 2-0-10-0 so far.

End of Over : 27 1 Runs ENG: 73/1

Spin time now. Roston Chase introduced. Just a reminder - Keemo Paul is still off the field and will not take part till Tea at least - means a bowler short.

Drinks are on the field.

Alzarri Joseph to Keaton Jennings. A little too straight from the pacer, sprays it on the pads, it's easy enough for the batter to work it behind square leg for one.

18.3 0

Alzarri Joseph to Keaton Jennings. Throws it full and well wide outside off, Keaton has nothing to do with it.

18.2 3

Alzarri Joseph to Joe Denly. Sweet shot from Joe Denly. Full outside off, he leans into it and drives it beautifully through the covers. Chase hares after it and pulls it back in just before the rope, so the batsmen take three.

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. FOUR! Shot of the morning but it had a hint of risk in it as well. Fuller length ball around off, Denly brings down a straight bat and drives it back. It's uppish but before Gabriel reacts to his right the ball has screamed past him to the fence down the ground.

15.5 4

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. FOUR! Up and over gully! Width on offer outside off, short in length, Denly flashes and flashes hard at it. It flies off the outside half over the jumping gully fielder for a boundary. Gabriel has his hand on his head in disappointment.

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. Goes even further up with his length. Too full on off at 130 kph, Jennings finds it close to his body and hence plays the drive. The feet are still missing but the connection is proper. It runs wide of mid off and they take a run.

14.5 0

Kemar Roach to Keaton Jennings. Better line and much better pace. Angles in a full ball on off at 133 kph, Jennings tries defending but gets an inside edge onto the pads.

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. EDGED, PUT DOWN! Denly gets a life. Easy as you like. Would have been a massive boost for the home side. Back of a length outside off, Joe comes forward to defend but suddenly the ball kicks off and takes JD by surprise. He is in no position to play and tries to fend but in vain. But the ball shoots up and hits the top half of the bat. Flies towards third slip where Shimron Hetmyer gets a simple chance to his right but puts it down. Gabriel is fuming. He was not the luckiest of the bowlers on Day 1 either.

13.3 0

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. The batsman defends it from within the crease.

Physio comes out. Keemo Paul is in some pain, lying flat on his back beyond the boundary line. Stretcher is being called now. The play resumes though as there is a substitute replacing Paul. Windies already have been facing issues with injuries to their players. Darren Bravo is off the field. Shannon Gabriel is also feeling his hamstring. Now, we are seeing Kemar Roach summoned to warm-up. Hopefully, his body gets warmed up quickly so that he can bowl the next over.

13.2 4

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. FOUR! Confident shot! Denly leans forward to a full ball and drives it through cover-point. But what happened there to the fielder? Keemo Paul scoots behind the ball from point, it starts to slow down before the rope but then Paul also slows down. He seems to have pulled his hamstring.

Shannon Gabriel to Keaton Jennings. A tempter there. Inviting the drive. Jennings knows how he falls most of the times. Shows patience, holds his composure and allows it through to the keeper.

Shannon Gabriel to Joe Denly. Five wides! Why don't they warm-up properly? It's a loosener by Gabriel. Wild one. Way down the leg side. Would have been a wide even if a left-hander was on strike. Dowrich tries his best to dive across to his left and collect the ball. Too wide though. Out of his reach. Bonus runs for England. Lead is over 150 now.

Shannon Gabriel to steam in from the other end.

End of Over : 11 5 Runs ENG: 24/1

Joe Denly's turn to prove himself with the bat.

Keemo Paul to Rory Burns. OUT! Wicket first ball! What a start for Windies! Paul runs in from 'round the wicket and angles in a length ball on middle, Rory leans forward and across to play the flick shot but fails to keep it down. Alzarri Joseph is strategically placed there at square leg and he takes a fine low catch. Keemo is smiling and a dejected Burns is on his way back. A soft dismissal really.

Time to get underway! Keaton Jennings and Rory Burns are the English openers. Leaving the game situation on one side, this innings is of utmost importance for these two batsmen. How will they fare? Let's find out. Strangely, Keemo Paul to continue from this end with four slips in place. Here we go...

PITCH REPORT - As usual, Daren Ganga is doing the pitch report. Says that it is Day 3 but does that mean spinners will get more purchase? Reckons that it may not be the case as the 4 wickets picked by spinners so far has not been due to any turn but because of their guile, inducing false shots. David Lloyd coming alongside straightaway calls it as a track for the seamers. Observes a few cracks around the good length area which might cause some indifferent bounce.

Ben Stokes in an interview to Ian Ward says it's special to share the field with someone reaching the landmark. Says that Wood has his ups and downs due to injuries and it meant a lot to him. Adds that Mark was bowling very quick and he has not seen a spell of that kind before. Further says when recurring injuries happen, it's all about keep yourself positive and be strong. On the surface, Stokes says there are dents on the pitch and there is something in it for the bowlers every time.

4 wickets on Day 1 and 4 x 4 wickets on the following day. This Test match like the other two has also moved at a fast pace with the only difference being that England are on top and not the hosts. A saying in cricket goes that there is no substitute for pace and Mark Wood proved that on the second day. Swing is good but pace is intimidating and that's what he did with the Windies batsmen. It was a devastating spell from him where he decimated the hosts' batting. The current status of this Test can be put as - England have the 'Wood' over the Windies and call the shots from hereon by building on their overnight 142-run lead. On that note, let me welcome you all for all the action from Gros Islet. Stay tuned for more updates...

... DAY 3, FIRST SESSION ...

The hosts need to come out and bowl a lot better on Day 3. Wickets is the call of the hour for them and they need it in heaps. For England, one good partnership and the game is more-or-less in their bag. Also, it is a good opportunity for their batsmen to get amongst the runs. Join us for all the action from Day 3 at 1000 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

60 balls is what the Windies pacers bowled to the English batsmen and not a lot of good deliveries were seen in those. They were once again wayward and guilty of bowling it too wide outside off. Similar to how they bowled with the new ball at the start of the first innings.

Already having 123 in the bag, the English side would now aim to capitalize. However, their first aim would have been to get through the nervy 10 overs unscathed and they have done so. Jennings once again looked shaky but has survived. Burns hasn't looked all that convincing but the two have ensured the visitors have all their wickets intact on Day 3.

The day started off with England being bundled out for 277 from 232 for 4. In reply, the Windies got off to the ideal start as the openers stitched a 50-plus run stand. However, the Wood and Moeen partnership wrecked havoc. The former picked a fifer and the latter ended with a four-fer. The two ensured that the English side head into their second innings with a big lead.

A big smile on Joe Root's face as his openers make their way back in the pavilion and why not? This is probably for the first time that they are in a firm position in this Test series.

That is all we have for you in this Test match series. Windies win it by a 2-1 margin and have surprised many. The England tour doesn't end here. The 5-match ODI series begin from 20th February. The first one will be played at Barbados. Join in at 1100 local (1500 GMT). Until then, ta ta!

Jason Holder then goes onto collect the trophy and calls over his teammates to pose for the shutterbugs. This series was really important for them as well as cricket in general. A sight that has not been seen recently but one which brings genuine happiness to the eyes of the neutral viewers.

Jason Holder tells us that it was a bit disappointing to lose the final Test. Reckons there are areas of improvement but there are also positives to pick out of the games. When asked about the previous tour compared to this one, he mentions there are both good and bad that can be taken out of each performance. Reserves some special praise for Roston Chase who he feels is an asset with both bat and ball. Continues by saying that he is looking forward to the touring Indians and reckons they will have to be more clinical in that, not affording to lose plots. On the importance of the series win, he ends by saying that the team has to consistently improve and reach the higher rankings by winning, aspiring to be the number 1 side. Thanks the Windies supporters as well as the travelling English supporters for making this a good spectacle.

Kemar Roach, the Man of the Series says that the series was a pretty good one for him but more important was winning for the team against a competitive England side. Tells us with a smile that even he gets tired but he was trying to give the best for the side. When asked about the team performance, he says that he is really proud of all his mates to have beaten the formidable England side. Asked about the touring Indian side later in the year he says that he is looking forward to all the cricket coming up. Ends by saying everyone is working really hard in practice and the nets to make the team a great one and get results which they want.

Mark Wood is the Man of the Match, says that he was full of confidence after the England Lions tour. He informs that he was not worried about his pace and just looked to run in and bowl fast. He feels happy about managing to come in and hit the right lines and lengths and pick up the wickets. When asked about playing in the Ashes for the England team, he says that he is not thinking that far ahead. Ends by thanking his fitness coaches and physios for getting him fit and ready to bowl.

Joe Root, the England captain feels that they played some good cricket in this Test and batted well in the first innings, then came out and did the job with the ball as well. On the team combination, he says that he chose the side that he felt was best-suited and admits that a few mistakes were made. Regardless, he feels that there is a brilliant squad and the team will be really good with experience. On his own form, he feels that the hundred was really important in the second innings and felt good to contribute with the bat. Praises Mark Wood for bowling with great pace and effort. Signs off by saying it was a great way to end the series and get some momentum going into the ODIs.

As for the bowling effort in the second innings, Anderson and Ali picked up three each, whereas Stokes picked up a couple, one went to Wood and the other one was a suicidal run out. Broad bowled well without success. All-in-all, a good bowling performance to follow the great one in the first innings as well. The English team can have some smiles on their faces before they move onto the 5-match ODI series coming up. Presentations to follow...

The chase was derailed early when 4 wickets went early on to the swing of Anderson and pace of Wood. Most of them were loose shots. What followed after Lunch was a bit of rearguard action with Roston Chase standing at one end, losing partners. And post-Tea, it was all about how long for the remaining wickets to fall. Roston Chase and the Windies innings continued long enough for the batsman to get to three figures but the England bowlers eventually found a way to bowl them out and pick up a consolation win.

Roston Chase remains unbeaten but the Windies don't. They have been beaten and convincingly at that in the final Test of the series. 232 runs and that underlines the importance of Jason Holder to this Windies Test team. Nevertheless, the series is in the bag and the hosts still have smiles on their faces as they walk out to shake hands with their opposition. A chase of 485 was never going to be possible but the hosts could have shown a bit more of character and tried to help out Roston Chase, who was out there trying his best.

We are back for the final session of play on the fourth day. Roston Chase and Kemar Roach to try and keep the hosts in the game. Chase to face Mark Wood.

... Day 4, Session 3 ...

Another session that belongs to England in the context of the Test match. 101 runs for the Windies but the away team has truckloads of runs left with them. The important fact is that they have picked up 2 wickets. Roston Chase has battled at one end but Shimron Hetmyer and Shane Dowrich left him mid-way through the battle. Now, he is alongside Kemar Roach which means that the original number 8, Keemo Paul might not be able to turn out to bat. That means, England will need 3 wickets. As for the hosts, their main aim will be to take this game as deep as possible. How will the final session pan out? Join us at 1500 local time to find out...

End of Over : 47 6 Runs WI: 136/6

40.5 W

Moeen Ali to Shane Dowrich. OUT! A loss of concentration! Dowrich departs and that is a huge, huge wicket for England. They are surely into the tail now. A flatter one on middle and off, Dowrich does not come ahead and stays back to defend. The ball goes off the thick outside edge and towards Stokes.

31.5 0

Mark Wood to Shane Dowrich. Length ball outside off, defended on the back foot.

DRINKS! With that wicket, the players take the Drinks break. Hetmyer and Chase were going along well and now some lazy running has cost them a wicket. Just 5 more wickets for the visitors to wrap this up. And if Paul doesn't come to bat, then four. Meanwhile, Shane Dowrich replaces Hetmyer in the middle.

31.4 W

Mark Wood to Roston Chase. OUT! And yes, as we expected. Shimron is well short of the crease. An attempted yorker from Wood goes as a full toss outside off, Chase guides it to deep point where there is a gap and runs. 2 runs are completed and the Windies batsmen run for a non-existent third. Denly runs to the ball and throws it on the half-volley to Bairstow. The keeper makes no mistake as he removes the stumps. The umpire takes it upstairs and we see that the southpaw was well short. Suicidal. The first and second run were so casually run and there was no need for the second. But as they say, the mind does not know what the best decisions in such times are and this certainly wasn't one. England are 5 wickets away now. (4 if Paul does not turn up).

Run-out appeal taken upstairs... Bairstow takes off the stumps at the keeper's end as the throw comes in. Unnecessary from the Windies. Don't know what the hurry was from them. Hetmyer isn't waiting for the signal even as it is taken upstairs. Looked like he was out to the naked eye.

31.3 0

Mark Wood to Roston Chase. Length ball on top of off stump, defended staying nice and tall above the ball.

31.3 wd
