Lara out to prove a point
West Indies 224 and 21 for 1 lead England 226 (Thorpe 119*, Edwards 4-70) by 19 runs
The first session will be crucial. Neither side's batsmen - with the marked exception of Graham Thorpe - have managed to really stamp their authority, and runs have been at a premium throughout. Today will probably offer the best conditions for batting, and West Indies must make the most of that and look to set England a target in excess of 250.
Another full house - once again predominantly sunburnt and English - packed into Kensington Oval before the start, and there were a few more clouds than there had been on the first two days to give them some relief from the sun.
