BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kemar Roach1844122.27906000
31.5 to AZ Lees, Lees is walking this time! Brings it back in and finds a thin nick through to the keeper! Roach has his man after a thorough examination - Lees battled hard, and scored more than half of England's runs to this point, but off he trudges. 53/5
42.1 to C Overton, unplayable, Overton's stumps are splattered! He looks bemused as he trudges off... what a ball from Roach. Wide on the crease on release, just a fraction short of a good length, and it nipped back viciously off the seam, flying between bat and pad to ping into the top of off stump. Might have kept just a fraction lower than expected too. West Indies have eight... Overton can't get England over-a-ton. 90/8
Jayden Seales1744032.35835000
25.1 to DW Lawrence, smashed on the pad, up goes the finger! This looked absolutely stone-dead on first watch but Lawrence opts to review with a second left on the timer. Wide on the crease, full and swinging in. Smashed Lawrence below the knee roll, and ball-tracking says it was hitting leg stump four-fifths of the way up. Joel Wilson's decision is a good one, and Jayden Seales gets his reward for a probing second spell. Lawrence was looking to push through mid-on but was beaten on the inside edge and his slightly frenetic innings comes to an early end. 46/3
37.2 to BT Foakes, pop go the bails! Seales the deal on Foakes' fate... Perfect length, coming back in through the gap to hit the top of middle. Maybe stayed slightly low, Foakes looks completely done in as he tried to play from the crease. Seales simply wags his finger in satisfaction. 67/7
53.2 to CR Woakes, too hot! Bowled neck and crop! Full and seaming in through the gate with Woakes looking to punch down the ground, results in a crash of ash behind him. That's an enjoyable sight for a fast bowler. Seales has his third and England are almost under the table. 114/9
Jason Holder1563402.26755000
Kyle Mayers1071321.30540100
12.2 to Z Crawley, chipped to short extra cover! West Indies' Stevo gambit pays off! Full and wobbly, Crawley looking to assert himself but mistimes an attacking shot straight to the man set for it. Wide line but with a scrambled seam, inviting the drive... and a simple catch for Brathwaite. 23/1
14.5 to JE Root, nicks him off, Mayers has two for none! Just a gentle length ball in the channel at 76mph/122kph, scrambled seam and it nips away just a fraction. Root leans forward and looks to defend but can only get a thin outside edge on it, and Da Silva takes a straightforward catch. Root gone for a blob, Mayers on fire!. 29/2
Alzarri Joseph1863321.83892000
30.6 to BA Stokes, miscued back to the bowler, England four down! Joseph stoops to catch one plinked off outer half of the bat, and casually tosses the ball to the umpire. Another short one and Stokes tried to take it on, but only succeeds in taking himself out. 53/4
32.3 to JM Bairstow, gottim, nicked off! This one holds its line and Bairstow is groping to get bat on ball. Excellent bowling from Joseph rips out another, pace up around 145kph and demanding a decision on fourth stump. Da Silva swallows a simple take behind the stumps. 53/6
Nkrumah Bonner511002.00230000
Jermaine Blackwood1.41412.4091000
89.4 to S Mahmood, filthy half-tracker, chopped onto his stumps! Mahmood has never scored a professional fifty and that run continues. No turn whatsoever, Mahmood lifted his front foot and looked to drag it through the leg side, hacking across the line. He bottom-edged it into the crease and then the off stump, and throws his head back in a mixture of disgust and disbelief. Blackwood grins from ear to ear, celebrating his fourth Test wicket. 204/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chris Woakes2575932.361245210
31.3 to NE Bonner, dug in short, Bonner ducks... and gloves it behind! Didn't quite get up as much as he expected. Cross-seamer, banged into the pitch, and Bonner left his hands in the way of the ball as he tried to sway underneath it and inside the line. It brushed the gloves on its way through, and Foakes claimed a low catch diving forwards. Woakes gets his reward for a much better second spell, and England have found a way to dislodge Bonner. No review, and UltraEdge confirms it brushed the gloves. 82/4
31.6 to JO Holder, horror shot from Holder, Woakes has two in the over! Banged in very short, Holder decides to take on the hook and spoons it miles up in the air. Bairstow runs in from deep backward square leg, and holds onto a straightforward catch. Another very soft dismissal from the former captain, his third in a row.... 82/5
35.4 to J Blackwood, hit on the pad, up goes the finger! Blackwood reviews without consultation. Hit him above the knee roll, but he is a short man. UltraEdge confirms it missed the inside edge. Clipping the top of leg stump so Wilson's decision is upheld. Woakes has his third in no time at all and West Indies are collapsing against the old ball! Just short of a length, angling down the leg side as Blackwood looked to defend towards mid-on. He was slightly late on the short and beaten by the seam movement as he was smashed on the top of the pad. 95/6
Craig Overton2338123.529711010
23.1 to JD Campbell, short ball bouncing high down the leg side huge appeal for caught behind! Foakes collects dive-rolling to his right... did it clip the glove? England review, and yes it did! Overton bags a wicket. Tucked him up, trying to work it towards square leg, gets only the glove to it and he's caught down the leg side. 69/3
68.5 to AS Joseph, toe-ended through to Foakes! Joseph exposes all three stumps, looking to whack it away through the swathes of space on the off side. Overton bangs it in short, Joseph throws the bat at it looking to launch it somewhere over mid-off, and it skews through to Foakes via the under-edge. Good low catch, and Overton breaks the stand with England still clinging onto a lead. 177/8
Saqib Mahmood2494521.871194000
22.2 to SSJ Brooks, lovely ball! On a length, low and straight it pitches on off and strikes the front pad, looks in line with middle and leg, yes, it is, and he's gone!. 68/2
90.6 to KAJ Roach, banged in and tickled down leg! Mahmood tucks him up, and England have finally solved their Roach problem! Hurled into the pitch with that slingy action and Roach was try to fend it off his body, could only divert it through to Foakes. 245/9
Ben Stokes2244822.181024000
16.6 to KC Brathwaite, oh and there you go! back of a length, it kept low and was dead straight, right on middle stump, strikes the back pad and in line. Stokes makes the breakthrough! A much-needed wicket for England as Stokes leaves the field. He did have a heavily strapped knee during the warm-up.. 50/1
47.2 to KR Mayers, fuller ball, right on middle stump and he chips in the air straight to mid on! Suggestions of a hint of reverse swing perhaps and he's gifted a catch to Saqib Mahmood, spooned it straight to him. Stokes strikes again!. 128/7
Jack Leach2164902.331056100
Joe Root1.30110.6680000
116.3 to JNT Seales, on middle, he chips it up straight back to Root, who reaches to his left and swallows the return catch with relative ease. That's the end of it for West Indies. 297/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kemar Roach9.241021.07480000
62.1 to CR Woakes, screamer at leg gully by Holder! Wondercatch! And booming celebration to match. Roach strikes with his first ball. On a length, angling some way down the leg side, and Woakes shaped to clip off his hip. Straight off the middle of the bat and looked for all money like it would fly away for four down to fine leg, but Holder - with his huge wingspan - instinctively stuck out his right hand and somehow managed to grab onto it, tumbling lwo to his right! England lose their ninth with the lead just 23. 116/9
64.2 to MJ Leach, edges a low catch through to the keeper! But Wilson is unmoved. Da Silva is so convinced that he reviews without asking Brathwaite first. They have three left, so no reason not too. Full outside off, but Leach was expecting the short one and hanging back. Clear spike on UltraEdge as it passes the outside edge, low on the bat, and yet another decision in this series is overturned!. 120/10
Jayden Seales1222612.16594000
3.5 to Z Crawley, pitched up, booming drive... and swallowed at slip! Holder almost didn't see it, and seems stunned to have held on. But Seales is celebrating, Crawley is walking off, and West Indies are amongst 'em early again! Seales gets Crawley for the third time in the series, another loose drive against the new ball and Zak's back in the hutch. 14/1
Kyle Mayers1791851.05931000
8.3 to JE Root, Mayhem Mayers hooks the big fish again!! Hangs out a tempter and Root slashes a fat edge to slip! Just 124kph/77mph, looked short and wide, to the layman, but there's extra spice in this Test, and England's skipper can only steer it high and to the right of first slip, where Campbell grabs it. 27/2
10.3 to DW Lawrence, MAYHEM! Bowled playing no shot! Gentle nip-backer and Lawrence was looking to shoulder arms as he moved on to off stump. Not far off from an lbw shout - the ball might even have flicked the pad - but in the end the umpire didn't have to make a decision, as the bails were tickled out of their groove. Mayers has another, 2 for 2 in his second over this time! England in a right two and eight. 27/3
16.3 to BA Stokes, oh wow! Tighter line, aiming at the top of off stump, Stokes pulls out of the press at the last second and it comes off the toe of the bat straight to the keeper! No sooner had Brooks taken the gloves to stand in for the injured Da Silva and he has taken a catch!. 39/4
46.2 to AZ Lees, oh my, Mayers! He's got another one! Great length, great line, it keeps low and wriggles under the bat to rip out off stump! Completely beats the bat with that length and low bounce. 97/7
48.2 to C Overton, drags his length back, oustide off and he jabs tamely at it, sending an outside edge to Jason Holder, who juggles a couple of times at third slip but holds on, Mayers has his five-wicket haul! That's 5 for 9 in 10.2 overs, to be precise. Incredible. 101/8
Jason Holder85600.75430000
Alzarri Joseph1633812.37672010
41.1 to JM Bairstow, slightly back of a length, around the wicket, on middle stump and it keeps low to the hefty swing and Da Silva takes the catch! An under-edge goes through to the keeper as he tries to swat it to the leg side.. 80/5
