TOTAL101.3 Ov (RR: 2.84)289
Fall of wickets: 1-53 (John Campbell, 18.1 ov), 2-126 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 46.4 ov), 3-128 (Darren Bravo, 48.2 ov), 4-174 (Shai Hope, 65.2 ov), 5-240 (Roston Chase, 82.5 ov), 6-250 (Shane Dowrich, 84.6 ov), 7-261 (Jason Holder, 86.6 ov), 8-264 (Kemar Roach, 89.2 ov), 9-289 (Alzarri Joseph, 100.4 ov), 10-289 (Shimron Hetmyer, 101.3 ov)
65.2 to SD Hope, Anderson's drought is over! That's a massive scalp for England, and it's their main man who delivers, jagging off the deck from back of a length, snags the inside-edge as Hope pushes a touch loosely, and Foakes gathers a low edge to dent Windies' progress significantly!. 174/4
82.5 to RL Chase, gottim, steered to first slip! That's a bingo for Anderson, who points wearily to the sky in celebration... Finds his line of beauty, Chase felt that overwhelming urge but could only send a thick edge to slip! Close on the front foot, but there's some boot behind the line. 240/5
84.6 to SO Dowrich, oh dear, he's in a right pickle here.... and the catch has lobbed to second slip! Misbegotten attempt at a pull from Dowrich, not the length for it and the ball straightens off the pitch, a fat top edge spooning up as he wheeled away awkwardly. England surging towards the close now. 250/6
86.6 to JO Holder, full, swinging, popped back to the bowler's left... and taken one-handed! Anderson gets his fourth and West Indies are stumbling towards the close, here! Holder chopped down on it late, maybe his bat hit the ground, and Anderson stuck out an insouciant left mitt to take the catch!. 261/7
100.4 to AS Joseph, edged, gone, Anderson has five! He draws level with Botham on 27 England five-fors, and it's a peach. Full length, climbing into the edge, a firm snick and a simple catch for third slip. 289/9
46.4 to KC Brathwaite, straightens one, clips the edge... and juuuuusssst carries to slip! Root takes it by his boot straps, and out of nowhere England have a wicket! Stokes is the instigator, of course. It was the length that did for Brathwaite, fuller then previously but he was still back, feeling for it away from his body. Looked like the edge might not carry but ended up being quite a comfortable catch. 126/2
48.2 to DM Bravo, pinned him in front! Bravo done for, on his heels and playing around an attempted yorker! Maybe just a hint of reverse for Stokes, defeated a leaden prod, Bravo unfortunately looking like a man who hasn't faced much Test-match fast-bowling recently... England's sniff has just become a full-on waft. 128/3
89.2 to KAJ Roach, snorting ball, takes glove and flies to first slip - Stokes bags another! A beast of a delivery, spitting from the surface, ripping out Roach with minutes left in the day to leave West Indies eight down! Hetmyer's single is a costly one, England roaring as the day draws to a close. 264/8
101.3 to SO Hetmyer, A big swish, a big nick, a tumbling take, and West Indies' resistance is over! A massive mow over the leg-side, Hetmyer decided it was time to go big or go home, and Stokes' swing does enough to find the edge. Four for him. Five for Anderson. The rest ... not so much .... 289/10
18.1 to JD Campbell, flighted, dipping as Campbell sweeps, skids into the pads - given! Campbell perishes by the sword! He consults with his partner before trudging off, DRS won't save him here. Moeen was a little loose in his first opener, but he's found his length and prised out the first wicket of the day. 53/1

Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Keaton Jennings, 8.6 ov), 2-35 (Rory Burns, 11.5 ov), 3-44 (Jonny Bairstow, 13.5 ov), 4-44 (Joe Root, 16.2 ov), 5-48 (Ben Stokes, 19.4 ov), 6-48 (Moeen Ali, 19.5 ov), 7-49 (Jos Buttler, 21.1 ov), 8-61 (Ben Foakes, 24.2 ov), 9-73 (Sam Curran, 29.5 ov), 10-77 (Adil Rashid, 30.2 ov)
11.5 to RJ Burns, bowled him! The change of ends works for Roach as Burns gets half-forward, but allows the ball to wriggle off the angled face of the blade, down into the crease and into the off stump! That's a massive boost for West Indies, and both of Engand's openers have gone without much to show for their day. 35/2
13.5 to JM Bairstow, ping, next batsman please! Wow, that's a stunning riposte! On off stump, climbs sharply off the seam, crashes into Bairstow's elbow, then down into his timbers! Welcome back old school England top-order, we've missed you!. 44/3
19.4 to BA Stokes, Pinged on the pads and up goes the finger! Stokes was right back on the stumps, but this could have been sneaking over ... England review ... no issue with the no-ball ... no bat involved as it crashes into the back leg ... trimming the bails! Wow. England are in freefall!. 48/5
19.5 to MM Ali, plucked on the boundary's edge for a first-baller!! This is just incredible! A scorcher from Roach, takes Moeen completely by surprise as he flicks a loose defensive bat across the line... a massive top-edge spirals down to Joseph at fine leg, who reverse-cups his hands to claw the ball back and keep himself in play at the same time!. 48/6
21.1 to JC Buttler, banged in short, and there goes another! This is mayhem! Short and fast, tight to the body and bruising the edge of a defensive blade! Roach has five in the blink of an eye, and ...well, this is extraordinary! England are a rocking, rolling, Roach-ridden mess!. 49/7
29.5 to SM Curran, chin music (although on Curran it's up around the ears), balloons off the glove to be caught at gully! There'll be no rescue act from Big Sam today! Gabriel gets among the wickets with a bonce-bothering short ball, and England are in all sorts of strife. 73/9
8.6 to KK Jennings, full, 130kph/80mph and Jennings slices the drive, the catch swallowed by gully! Reward for persistent probing from the Windies captain, kept pitching it up and Jennings took the bait, a flirty squirt that flew to Hope at chest height. Holder breaks through. 23/1
16.2 to JE Root, massive wicket! Nailed on the front pad, and Root is going nowhere! Angled in from wider on the crease, and he doesn't even consider the review! Set him up beautifully with the ones that nipped the other way, then bingo!. 44/4
24.2 to BT Foakes, pitched up, draws him out, and kisses the outside edge through to Dowrich! West Indies have wicket No. 8, and it's a joyous one for Joseph, his first since the Dominica Test of 2017! That's all, Foakes. 61/8
30.2 to AU Rashid, short ball, in the channel... and Rashid steers it tamely to slip! England have been rumbled, blown away between lunch and tea for their fourth-lowest total against West Indies; Rashid far from the most culpable but a soft dismissal nevertheless, Holder reaching across with those bucket hands to nab the edge this time. 77/10

35.1 to SO Hetmyer, full and tempting... but Hetmyer has flubbed it to point! Bit of an anticlimactic way to go, considering Hetmyer has been tonking it all around the park. Buttler holds on this time, having dropped the same batsman in the first innings. 120/6
16.5 to KC Brathwaite, pinned on the pads and England have their breakthrough! Absolutely plumb as Brathwaite was caught playing across the line to a back-of-a-length slider. Into the shins and there's no point reviewing that!. 52/1
20.2 to DM Bravo, flighted, grips and clips the edge, snapped up low at slip! England have another! Bravo's forgettable comeback continues, lured forward by Moeen's dip and then steering limply to the hovering Stokes. 61/3
20.4 to RL Chase, pushed through, goes on to take the outside edge - two in three balls for Moeen! Chase props forward anticipating some turn, but there was none, the ball deflecting straight off the edge to that man Stokes again! Lummy. 61/4
19.2 to JD Campbell, short, filthy, and slapped straight to cover! That's some of the worst cricket of the day, a wild wide bouncer from round the wicket, which ended up with Stokes tripping over his own feet. But Campbell was through the looping half-tracker too early and toe-ended to Keaton Jennings!. 60/2
21.2 to SD Hope, rising off a length, thuds into the bat and then pad, Jennings grabs it at short leg! Stokes roars, Jennings roars, England have ripped out another! Hope's head drops, he has to go, done by some extra bounce and seam movement in... How's your nerve, Windies fans?. 61/5

46.5 to JM Bairstow, short and veering leg side, tickled to the keeper! Gabriel has bombed out Bairstow instead! Seems to be no question about the front foot this time, YJB heading off with his bat under his arm... Clearly got some glove on it, fast and furious towards the ribs, banged in and bounced out. 143/3
43.5 to RJ Burns, bowled him! That's the ticket for West Indies, round the wicket, and Burns - with three close catchers on the off side - was cautious of committing to the front foot. Trapped on the crease, the ball slid on and wriggled into the off stump, and well, that's the way to make your lunch taste better!. 134/2
57.3 to JE Root, oh dear, Root's on the fritz - steered straight to slip! Nothing delivery, bouncing up outside off, and he's given Bravo catching practice! He survived once, thanks to a no-ball, but the captain is back in the sheds now, and West Indies' victory window just got wider. 167/4
68.5 to BA Stokes, Stokes has been given out lbw! Not a massive appeal, to be honest, and unsurprisingly Stokes reviews. Seemed to grip on an off-stump line, and grazed just past the inside edge, but UltraEdge says no bat! That's going to be out! He had been struggling when the ball was pitched on the stumps... the end of a battling but formless stay at the crease. 215/5
70.5 to MM Ali, abysmal from Moeen! Just a hint of width outside off, Mo threw his wrists at the ball as if casting his rod for tomorrow's afternoon of marlin fishing ... Holder at the second of West Indies' slips gobbled the simplest of takes, and off he skulks for a pair. Stick a fork in this one, it is cooked!. 217/6
72.1 to JC Buttler, FIVE FOR CHASE!! Campbell with a brilliant diving snare at short midwicket! He was horizontal as he flew to his left, grabbing it one-handed, West Indies on another level in every respect! Buttler is given his notice, Chase completes his second five-for in Tests, and England are heading steadily for the Bridgetown rocks. 218/7
74.2 to BT Foakes, full and swept powerfully away through squa... HANG ON, that's brilliantly held at short leg! The wind is only blowing one way, here! Hetmyer had his head down, taking evasive action but the ball went straight into his midriff and he came up with it smiling! Six-wicket haul for Roston Chase. 228/8
76.1 to AU Rashid, wristy whip over midwicket, could go all the way... No, he's picked out the fielder! He's right on the rope, has to juggle the ball but Brathwaite does it well - although, the boundary marker had actually been moved, and he did stand on the line where it was resting previously. Dharmasena is happy enough, anyway, and England are nine down. 234/9
80.4 to SM Curran, down the leg side, Curran walks past it to be stumped - and West Indies have won by 381 runs! Chase gets his eight-for, and the Windies have blown England away in Barbados! Neat bit of work by Hope, the back-up keeper, too, emphasising how big a gap there has been between the two teams here. 246/10
28.5 to KK Jennings, sends down a tempter, Jennings' resolve breaks... and he slashes a thick-edged drive to slip! Holder grabs it, needed to be a tall man, with the ball still going up as he made the leap to his left from second. Joseph makes the breakthrough in his first over of the day - first wicket since Thursday evening!. 85/1
