    32.2 massive appeal! What's that missing? If it's missing bat, it must be close! West Indies review, after a long consultation. Round the wicket, very wide on the crease, very full, angling in ... it's not a no-ball, and that has crashed into his shin on an off-stump line... this looks horribly adjacent. Smashing middle, that's a goner! 69/2
    16.1 floated up wide of the stumps, Jennings steers tamely to slip! Paul's loosener brings him a fourth Test wicket, ending England's really quite turbid opening stand. The tempter does for Jennings in the end, flashed to slip in regulation fashion 30/1
    33.2 pinged on the pads, and up goes the finger! Goodness, a minimal appeal, and a very belated review! Denly was so deep in his crease, maybe struck just outside off at a pinch? Nope, I strongly doubt that... will height save him? Nope! Denly's a goner too! 69/3
    47.5 short ball, Root flings the bat, nicks one to the keeper! Another failure for the captain, on what is turning into a dismal tour (he's never before gone a series without reaching 50)... Think that just scraped the toe end as he tried to cut, the finger went up straight away and Joseph gets Root for the third time in a row 107/4

    85.1 utterly cleaned up! That's superb from Gabriel, fast, straight, full and angling in. Buttler is guilty of playing the sort of loose drive that sank England in the second innings at Antigua, but he was simply beaten for pace! What a wicket so early in the day! 232/5
    93.6 smashed high in the air, and a brilliant grab from Dowrich! Stokes thought he'd picked the one to pull, but found a spiralling top-edge into the leg side. Caught in the breeze, drifting out to square leg. The keeper was the only man near, he sprinted, he dived, he stretched, he grabbed. Stunning judgement and the end of a vital innings 256/6
    99.5 timber! Loose drive and YJB sees his stumps pinged again! He has not looked comfortable, taken a bit of a peppering, and Roach finally finds his spot... Full and tempting, Bairstow falls for it hook, line and sinker, via a thick inside edge 270/7
    100.2 back of a length, holds its line as Moeen dabbles - and steers a thick edge to first slip! Decent ball from Joseph, thought Moeen really didn't need to play at it; West Indies coming back strongly with the ball this morning 275/8
    101.3 short ball, top-edged on the hook... and taken nonchalantly on the run by Joseph at fine leg! Looked like it might go all the way, then it appeared a tough chance for Joseph, haring across to his right; but he pouched it like a man catching a cupcake tossed across the counter and just kept on running along the rope, cool as 277/9

    101.5 snorting short ball, rearing up and gloved to slip! Excellent ball, to any batsman never mind England's venerable No. 11, he turned away and threw up his hands reflexively, the ball lobbing gently off the top hand to fourth slip. Job done, West Indies 277/10

    18.3 oh dear, Kraigg... the Windies captain goes for a heave over midwicket, picks out Anderson in the deep! That's a release shot for him against spin, played to good effect earlier in the series, but that's an error of judgement, and it's let England in! The man was stationed deliberately at cow corner, and Brathwaite slogged it to him running in 57/1
    18.4 sliding in and struck on the pads - given! Was it straightening enough? Campbell decides to chance a review, but it only has to be clipping, remember. He was coming forward and flicking across the line, the ball skidded on past the inside edge... and would have toppled leg stump, according to Hawk-Eye! 57/2
    21.5 pitched up, extras wheels, Hope slices it to gully! Wood takes off, arms spread, he has a wicket with his fifth ball... That was even quicker, 148kph/92mph and too hot for Hope, who was rather hitting-and-hoping there, flashed at a drive but skewed off the outside edge! Wood lights the fi-yah for England! 59/3
    29.2 edged, gone, Root at first slip! A touch fuller after ramming Bravo back into the crease with his first ball, a thin tentative poke, and the skipper takes this one much more comfortably, waist-high to his right. Wood is veritable bonfire! 79/6
    21.6 short and jumping, jiving at Chase, who thick-edges his first ball to gully! Two in two, for the second time in a matter of overs for England! Wood is off again, before being mobbed by his team-mates... That was 149kph and Chase just fenced blindly, gone first ball for the second match running! Well taken by Burns, given it came at him so fast 59/4
    27.1 short and snorty! Takes the outside edge and nearly hits Root in the throat at first slip! Wood has a third, and England are rampant, for pretty much the first time in the series... No doubt about this one carrying, Root nearly let it squirm free, as he brought his hands up to shoulder height and juggled the ball before holding on. Time for one more ball, in the end, and one more back in the Windies hutch! 74/5
    45.2 legcutter from Broad, seems to pin Dowrich on the back pad in front of off stump... Rod Tucker isn't giving it, but Broad is convinced, already in celebrappeal mode and England review. The only question is whether impact was in line - and Hawk-Eye says it was! Broad was rightly confident, the ball shimmying past Dowrich's forward prod to thump into the knee roll, and its destiny was top of off 145/8
    34.3 walks straight past a Moeen drifter, and off come the bails! Lured down the pitch, the ball just ghosts past a non-shot, and Bairstow has all the time in the world to seal the deal. That was a 9 that was far more entertaining than his total suggests 104/7

    46.3 slogged straight up, Broad is backpedalling from mid-off but might not get ther... BRILLIANT CATCH! Broad throws out his right arm and takes a one-handed screamer over his shoulder! Took a tumble, might have banged his head, but emerged with a big grin on his face. Everything is coming up Milhouse for England right now 148/9
    47.2 timbeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrr! Wood gets his five-for! Rattles the woodwork, and Wood's work is done (for now). Fires in the full bunger, hits the base of middle stump, and he takes the plaudits for a quite spectacular return to Test cricket 154/10

    10.1 on the toes, and Burns is off to the beach! Oh my word, what a start for West Indies! On the pads, a languid clip, that could have gone anywhere ... but it's gone straight to square leg! 19/1

    27.1 strikes first ball! Jennings has dragged on via his pads! What bad luck, although not for Joseph, who does a Keemo with his opening delivery... It was missing the wicket by a distance, until it got caught in Jennings' thigh pad as he tried to glance, and plopped out on to leg stump. Jennings can't stop himself smiling, which says something about his character. Will that be the last time we see him in Tests? 73/2
    45.5 dug in and Denly cuts again, feathers through to the keeper! There'll be no maiden hundred, but he's done his job... Reward for the persevering Gabriel, though he would doubtless have preferred having Denly held at slip on 12. Ball No99 gets its second wicket of the day, too 147/3
    105.2 full toss, scooped to the leg side - and taken by Hetmyer diving forward at midwicket! Root's fun is over, and his average will stay just a tick under 50 for now, too. Gabriel gets the wicket, though it was far from his best ball, and Root takes the applause as he walks off 361/5

    80.5 clean through him! That was special from Roach, tight line, full length, Buttler turned inside out by late seam movement, and from wide on the crease, he pings the outside half of his off stump. Brilliant end to a fine knock 254/4

    2.2 testing line, Brathwaite's bat scissors down at an angle, and Stokes just clings on to the catch at second slip! Two in two overs for Anderson, who was doubtless steaming after going wicketless in the first innings but has a grudging smile on his face now! Brathwaite admonished himself for not leaving his first ball, but this was one he had to play at 10/2
    0.3 drives at his first ball, fizzes off the edge - and Moeen takes a screamer in the gully! Anderson gets his early wicket, and it's Campbell, his main antagonist this series, who isn't granted any extra lives this time thanks to a brilliant one-handed grab over his right shoulder by Moeen! 5/1
    15.4 ping. that'll do it! Banged in short, not remotely comfortable, as he flinched on the back foot, poked a leading edge out to point, where Broad back-pedalled to swallow the chance 31/4
    6.1 edged and gone! That's right in the channel from Anderson, outside off, lifting past the edge, tempting the drive, and Root at first slip gobbles the opportunity! Loose from Bravo - he wasn't tempted in that manner in 340-odd minutes in Antigua. But he's gone without scoring and Anderson is flying! 10/3

    31.4 low full toss, 145kph/90mph and Chase swats it away through point... they try to come back for three, but Hetmyer is struggling here! Oopsie, West Indies lose their fifth wicket in shoddy fashion. The ball rolled almost all the way to the rope, so a third should have been on, but Denly's arm from the boundary was good and Bairstow ransacked the castle with the batsman a yard short! 76/5
    40.5 brilliant from Moeen! Off-stump line, drift does the trick as the ball climbs into the edge from a very full length and flies hard to Stokes at slip, who clings on well as that arrived quickly, it was in the crook of his arm rather than the hands, in fact! West Indies are sinking fast now... 110/6
    52.1 slogged to cover, Roach's road runs out! Moeen feeds the drive and he picks out the man, to bring an entertaining post-tea cameo to an end 156/7
    60.5 spooned up and this will be taken - Anderson does the job at mid-on! One slog too many from Joseph, this came high off the bat and Anderson had time to run across to his left and settle under it 212/8
    67.5 back of a length, Gabriel swipes... and nicks off! He's done it again (sort of)! No review, he knew he'd hit it, just couldn't help himself 236/9
    69.5 short ball, loops up off the splice as Paul pulls - Stokes takes it in his follow through! And then throws down the stumps, for good measure. Not sure why, perhaps he thought he had overstepped, but he quickly offers his hand to Keemo Paul, who did his bit for his team-mate 252/10
