1.4 to DP Sibley, timbeeeeeeeeeeeeer! Off stump is pegged back... Oh how we've missed that sweet, sweet sound! Dom Sibley perhaps wasn't so keen to get acquainted with it, but a poorly judged leave sends him back for a duck. No one to clap him off, either. The previous one had nibbled the other way, this one he let go only to hear the fateful gurgle as Gabriel brought it in with the angle. Lovely bowling. 0/1
23.2 to JL Denly, stumps splattered! Gabriel does it again, nip-backer from a good length, 90-plus mph and that's a bingo! Slightly loose forward defensive from Denly, and the ball ripped through the gap to make a mess of the woodwork behind him. Not even a Dentury to his name this time... Important first breakthrough of the morning for WI. 48/2
25.4 to RJ Burns, flung down full, there's a couple of noises as the ball thuds into the pad... was it heading leg side? West Indies call for a review, and this could be close. No bat involved, was just the toe scraping the ground, and Burns had moved right in front of his poles. Hawk-Eye has it smashing leg stump! Gabriel gets his third, England on a wobble. Test cricket, how we've missed you!. 51/3
67.3 to JM Anderson, Gabriel rattles the stumps again, off stump is bent back. Full, fast, slanting in from wide of the crease, breaching the weak defences of Anderson. 204/10
Alzarri Joseph1345304.07587010
Jason Holder2064262.101005001
33.1 to Z Crawley, After teasing Crawley with outswingers, Holder ventures wide of the crease and pings the front pad by bringing this one back in. The batsman falls over and is in trouble. Not given out lbw, but Holder opts to challenge the on-field not-out decision. This looks close. Beats the inside edge and thuds into the pad in line with middle. Impact in line, hitting leg stump. Crawley has to go and another fine review from Holder and WI. 71/4
37.4 to OJ Pope, top delivery from Holder and he finds the outside edge. The WI captain goes wide of the crease, tricks Pope into believing that this is coming in with the angle. Instead, it swerves away against the angle. A crease-bound Pope is opened up, pokes at it and snicks it off to Dowrich. England five down. 87/5
53.3 to BA Stokes, got him this time! Holder wins the battle of the captain allrounders! This was fuller and nipped a fraction as Stokes pushed at it coming forwards on off, the ball kissed the edge and Dowrich did the rest! Slightly crooked bat, but that was beautifully bowled, using the angles and conditions to full effect. 154/6
55.4 to JC Buttler, beauty! Top ball and a catch to match! Ninja line just outside off and it straightens enough to catch the edge, but Dowrich was wrong-footed and had to adjust in a blink - one paw, thrust out to his right, and he snagged it low to the ground! Holder goes pow-pow and England are in the muck again. 157/7
57.4 to JC Archer, another West Indies review for lbw, after Holder speared one into Archer's front pad... Could be tight again, Richard Kettleborough having declined the original appeal. Delivered from quite wide on the crease, but this looks to be troubling leg stump. Yep, demolishing leg, Holder has five! Excellent use of the DRS, and the net is tightening around England. 157/8
61.1 to MA Wood, edged and taken. There's no stopping Big Jase, this is his sixth. And fine catch to boot at gully. Hope leaps to his left and snags the catch. Back of a length and wider, Wood slashes and the outside edge flies away, but Hope collects it in fuss-free fashion. 174/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson25116232.481258000
12.6 to JD Campbell, smacks the front pad, given lbw for a third time! Campbell asks for assistance from the DRS, but his luck may have finally run out, at least to the naked eye! Richard Illingworth's trigger finger is backed up by the evidence on this occasion, Hawk-Eye has the ball toppling leg stump - and Campbell's cannonball run is over!. 43/1
55.2 to SSJ Brooks, shortish and holding its line, there's a sound on the way through! Umpire Kettleborough's finger goes up, but Brooks reviews with about a second left on the timer! This is going to be either a good review, or a bad one - no two ways about it. Spike on Snicko, and that's outta here! Maybe Brooks thought it was worth a squirt, considering the umpires' performance so far, but seemed to be a fairly obvious edge. England have a much-needed breakthrough. 173/4
88.6 to RL Chase, full and straight and thudding into the pads... not given by umpire Illingworth, but England review. Two sounds, but looks like it was the ball hitting both pads; definitely no inside edge on its way through. And that is crashing into the woodwork, according to ball-tracking, so Chase will have to go! Hint of swing and then it seamed back. Anderson does it, chiseling a breakthrough with West Indies threatening to coast away. 267/6
Jofra Archer2236102.771017001
Mark Wood2227413.36967000
101.6 to ST Gabriel, boom. 90mph heat from Wood has finally resulted in a wicket, and a picturesque one at that. Middle stump knocked right out as Gabriel looks to cart this into the midwicket boundary. 318/10
Ben Stokes1454943.50658000
41.6 to KC Brathwaite, Brathwaite reviews just in time! Been given lbw trying to flick into the leg side off the back foot. My first thoughts were he was outside the line when struck. Another regulation angled-in delivery from Stokes...and DRS says that's umpire's call on both impact and wickets. Tracker has it clipping middle and off. Close, close margins but England have the breakthrough. Brathwaite trapped playing across the line. Might consider himself a tad unlucky, but he's set this innings up nicely for his team. 140/3
94.1 to JO Holder, short ball, top-edged... Stokes gets his man! Holder swings a pull shot down the throat of fine leg, and England knock over another, a wicket that will expose the tail. Well taken by Archer, stooping to complete the catch, and that's a small slice of rewengé for the England captain. 281/7
98.4 to AS Joseph, cleaned him up. Tell you what, as long as we're drawing parallels with the Brathwaite wicket - this one is about what it would have looked like if his pad hadn't got in the way. Alzarri on the back foot as this nips in and hits the top of of middle and off. Stokes stares him down, don't need to say a lot when you've comprehensively beaten someone. That will also make it 150 Test wickets for him. 306/8
100.2 to SO Dowrich, strangled down leg side, and he walks! Short of a length at a leg stump line. He skips into the off side to make room for a swish down leg. Gets a thin edge and Buttler's still got it in his legs to jump across and grab that. Dowrich came in at a time where one wicket could have pulled England back in. He's more than done his part since. Superb innings to start off the Test series for him. 313/9
Dom Bess1955122.68886000
34.3 to SD Hope, got him at first slip! Hasn't landed too many in troublesome areas, but this will do nicely from Bess - a loopy, enticing full ball that curves deliciously away from Hope after starting outside off. Hope has the front foot out but the ball goes on and on, away from him, and he has a big flap at it away from the body. Goes straight on off the pitch and it's a thick edge that floats up gently for Stokes. Just as a cloud comes on.... 102/2
60.6 to J Blackwood, JERMAINE!! Drilled to mid-off, he's thrown his wicket away! Always impulsive, that was just calamitous... Bess picks up a second out of nowhere and West Indies are five down. That shot is probably why Blackwood has spent the best part of three years out of the side. 186/5

Kemar Roach2285002.271075000
Shannon Gabriel21.247553.51949003
51.3 to DP Sibley, gottim this time, snuffed out down the leg side! Gabriel can save himself a gasket, gets his man with one on the hip, normally a strength for Sibley but he's had a bad habit of nicking them occasionally, too. No issues with the front foot this time, West Indies have the breakthrough. 113/2
101.2 to DM Bess, knocks out off stump. It's always good viewing when this man hits the stumps, they barely stand a chance. Wide of the crease, full and fast. Pins Bess to the middle stump line with his angle and this holds it line to beat the edge and hit the stump. 278/7
101.6 to OJ Pope, chops it on! England are coming apart in the final hour! That's the last batsman gone. Gabriel gets him in a tangle with a short one lifting in at right underarm. Pope is well beaten in pace as he scrambles to try and open the face and get this into the off side. Can only end up guiding it onto his stumps. That is wicket number five in the last hour. 279/8
109.3 to MA Wood, got him, nicks a cut to the keeper! Wood throws his head back in disgust, gone attempting to hack Gabriel over the off side, probably done for pace. Think he knew the short stuff was coming and attempted to hit his way out of trouble... simple stuff works for West Indies. 303/9
111.2 to JC Archer, bouncer, Archer pulls again, there's a sound through to Dowrich! Given on field and although Archer reviews I think Gabriel has his five-for here - yep, just wasting a bit of time, really, clear contact with the glove on its way through. So Archer's resistance is ended, West Indies will need 200 to win the first Test. 313/10
Jason Holder2284912.221098000
89.4 to BA Stokes, taken at gully! Holder gets Stokes again! Short of a length and a bit of wobble outside off. Stokes fences at that away from his body and guides it straight to one of two gullies stationed there. 249/4
Roston Chase2567122.841128000
36.1 to RJ Burns, it had to be this way. A loss in concentration from Burns, and some vindication for the West Indies for sticking to containment. Chase drops this short outside off, and Burns looks to go just a little too hard with the cut shot. Loses his shape and ends up slicing it straight to backward point. A pity that, Burns was looking good for more. Twelve minutes before lunch, West Indies have an opening. 72/1
64.3 to JL Denly, chipped straight to short midwicket! Another one perishes softly against Chase. Not to overblow it, but this wicket is a consequence of West Indies having two straight-ish midwicket fielders for Chase. It coaxes Denly to try and gently nurdle an innocuous leg side ball through the vast square leg gap. Through that shot too soon and it's a generous lob for that fielder. 151/3
Alzarri Joseph1824522.50824000
90.4 to Z Crawley, Alzarri takes that in his follow through and we have another twist! Ohhhh boy. Another soft dismissal off an attempted flick. Crawley looked so good and he's dejected at popping one back at the bowler. It was on a length, at the pads, but seemed to have stopped on him a touch. Through the shot early and smartly held to his right by Joseph. A Test-best for Zak but a Test century will have to wait. 253/5
94.2 to JC Buttler, inside edge and onto the stumps. Loose, very loose. Not been very assured in his short stay. The stay's ended. And surely more questions now about Buttler's place in this side. It's a length ball in the corridor and his feet are rooted as he looks to drive on the up. Massive gap between bat and pad. Out goes leg stump. Rewards for Joseph, who has been understated this innings, after coming onto bowl well after 30 overs. Kept England under pressure in every spell. 265/6

James Anderson1534202.80665000
Jofra Archer1734532.64794010
5.4 to KC Brathwaite, plays it on! And the match is on. Tentative from Brathwaite. This is a length ball that swerves into the corridor. He's behind the line - and outside off stump, so now threat of lbw - but it's a loose attempt at a defence. And he can only manage to play it on off the inside half of the bat. Jofra has shown up for England today. He has his first wicket of the match. 7/1
7.3 to SSJ Brooks, that looks plumb! Archer keeping it simple, keeping it full, keeping it curving in at the stumps. Brooks looks to drive on the rise for the initial line, and is woefully beaten and trapped right in front of off stump. He doesn't review that. 7/2
35.4 to RL Chase, got him! Oh Jofra, you beauty. This is what he's in the side for. He's created this wicket with the perfect bouncer. There is realistically nothing Chase can do as it climbs up from short of a length and heads straight for his face. It's a whippy bouncer, not too short, but very steep. So there isn't time to sway away. Only to instinctively follow, get your hands up and hope that it dies into the pitch. In this case, it lobs straight off the gloves and Buttler grabs an easy one. That's West Indies' most reliable fourth-innings batsman gone. He's done quite a job, but this will put some pressure on the visitors. What a match. What a bowler.. 100/4
Mark Wood1203613.00513000
11.4 to SD Hope, through him with a beaut! Lovely in-dipper from Wood, wide of the crease and about 88mph. That's loose from Hope, looking to drive for the line and on the up outside off. The ball cuts back into him, catches his thigh and then knocks into the stumps. 27/3
Dom Bess1023103.10442000
Ben Stokes10.213923.77414001
52.5 to SO Dowrich, gottim this time! Like Gabriel to Sibley in the second innings... Makes amends for the no-ball straight away, superb line and reversing away from Dowrich, who's finally run out of lives! They celebrate confidently this time. Can England flip this chase on its head?. 168/5
60.4 to J Blackwood, drills it straight to mid-off! Oh no, Jermaine. Misses out on a second Test century and gifts himself the tension of being in the dressing room as West Indies look to wrap up a win that he has set up for them. What a knock, but an anticlimactic ending. Overpitched ball outside off. Looked to smoke it over mid-off, as he has done successfully twice in this innings, but he can't beat Anderson to his right here. 189/6
