Kemar Roach2888623.0713115030
2.1 to MD Stoneman, what a delivery, takes off stump! That's a gem, a good length, pitches at middle and nips past the outside edge to take the top of off stump. 14/1
74.2 to JE Root, bowled him, straight through the gate! Roach screams out a warcry as West Indies celebrate the breakthrough after 67 overs of toil... Did that hoop in? It certainly found the gap as Root attempted to drive, Roach was on the money straight away and gets the reward that eluded him during the middle session. Fabulous knock from Root but Windies have dislodged him and have a chink to aim at. 287/3
Alzarri Joseph22310904.959220002
Miguel Cummins2438713.62999003
7.3 to T Westley, full, nips back is lbw! Started with huge appeal for which Erasmus gave not out. Holder calls for a review. A full delivery nips back and Westley misses as he drives. This looks very good. Low down on the front pad. And it's clattering into middle and leg. Three reds.. 39/2
Jason Holder29.3410313.4913517002
130.4 to JM Bairstow, length, this nips back and YJB chops on! Silence around the ground, barely a celebration from the Windies, but they've got rid of another... Just a cameo from Bairstow, he was maybe trying to run the ball to third man and it came in at him, clipped the inside edge and then deflected off his pads on to the stumps, just dislodging the off bail. 505/6
Roston Chase26.2211344.298912000
117.2 to DJ Malan, edged to slip! Out of nowhere, really, and his chance for a hundred goes begging. A nice piece of bowling, on off stump and it spins away, Malan on the front foot and sends a regulation edge to Blackwood. 449/4
121.1 to BA Stokes, floated up, Stokes reverse-sweeps... and gloves to slip! Second wicket for Chase, the catch smartly held above his head by Blackwood. Stokes looks a bit miffed to have missed out but off he heads. 466/5
131.5 to MM Ali, gone, chipped into the covers! Cook does lose another partner, Moeen trying to swing Chase down the ground but instead gifting his wicket away. Chase has a third and England have lost 4 for 57. 506/7
135.5 to AN Cook, he's finally out! Appeal for lbw as Cook misses his flick at a pretty straight ball, given not out by Erasmus, and the review is called for. Looks pretty close. Has it straightened enough? No edge. It's hitting leg stump and Cook's epic is over. 514/8

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson1563432.26765010
2.2 to KC Brathwaite, lovely ball, and he's nicked behind! It didn't take long. Anderson gets it full, just outside off, late movement away from Brathwaite who nibbles without any footwork and it's a thin edge to Bairstow. 0/1
16.6 to KA Hope, feisty, rearing off a length, clips the shoulder of the bat and flies to gully! Hope has been blasted out by an absolute ripsnorter from Anderson! Stokes this time holds on without drama, it was a straightforward catch after the ball had kicked like Buckaroo and taken Hope completely by surprise. He battled through admirably last night but couldn't do too much with that. 45/2
20.5 to RL Chase, bowled 'im! Precision stuff from Anderson, decking back in off a perfect length, Chase can't get his bat down quite in time and edges on to his stumps... The pink ball pops the bails and England are right amongst 'em, here. 47/4
Stuart Broad1634722.93766100
39.5 to KAJ Roach, that's through him! Full at off stump, Roach goes for the drive and this spears past the inside edge to take out off stump. 134/8
45.5 to AS Joseph, fired in at the stumps, hits the pads and up goes the finger! Joseph misses playing across the line, pinned like a gigantic butterfly on the crease... That looked plumb and S Ravi agreed with Broad, who was off and running in familiar fashion before glancing round to have it confirmed. West Indies still have two reviews left but Joseph doesn't even bother to burn one. 162/9
Toby Roland-Jones603125.16256010
28.5 to SD Hope, timber! Hope plays on, Roland-Jones breaks the (brief) resistance and West Indies are five down... An ill-advised shot, given the circumstances his team were in, trying to drive on the up and there was enough seam movement to mean the ball ended up cannoning into the stumps off the inside edge. 89/5
30.6 to SO Dowrich, that's stone dead lbw! Gets it full and straight, that actually straightens off the seam and beats the outside edge as Dowrich shapes to play towards mid-on and that's clattering off stump.. 101/6
Ben Stokes704005.71245000
Moeen Ali311515.00121100
38.3 to JO Holder, caught behind after a review! Another one past the outside edge, and Bairstow is convinced he's nicked it! The review is called for. Moeen certainly wasn't sure. There are spikes on Ultra Edge - although did they quite match up? - and this is overturned! Holder isn't impressed. Bat was nowhere near the ground or the pad. Noise can't have been anything else. 129/7

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson721221.71372000
4.2 to KOA Powell, edged and taken at first slip! Anderson nips out the first again, maybe could have been left on length but it veered away as Powell pushed stiffly from the crease and sent a fast nick straight into Cook's bucket hands. 15/1
44.5 to KAJ Roach, that does the job, full and straight. Very similar to the first-innings dismissal, Roach misses his drive and the stumps are clattered. 137/9
Stuart Broad1043433.40486000
33.4 to RL Chase, shoots on low, into the pads - Chase has been done! Easy decision for Marais Erasmus, Broad gets his wicket and moves within one of levelling up Ian Botham... Chase might have come forward but couldn't then get his bat down as it seamed in at him. 104/6
33.5 to JO Holder, gone first ball! Broad is off and running again, no need to check with the umpire this time... A beauty holding its line on off and Holder can only steer it low to first slip! He's level with Botham and on a hat-trick!. 104/7
37.2 to SO Dowrich, bowled him, neck and crop! That went through Dowrich like a battering ram, seaming in to smash the top of off stump - and it moves Broad clear of Botham as England's second-leading Test wicket-taker! Anderson and Broad are together at the top of the pile. 115/8
Toby Roland-Jones6.431822.70354000
10.1 to KA Hope, full, straight and given lbw! After a long talk, Hope calls for the review out of, well, hope. It has angled back in a little, Hope plays around it, but it's umpire's call on clipping leg stump. Not plumb, but out enough with it being given on the field by S Ravi. 41/2
45.4 to AS Joseph, edged to slip, and that's the win to England. In the channel outside off, excellent line, the outside edge carries low to Stokes who grabs it down to his right. 137/10
Ben Stokes94911.00470000
19.1 to SD Hope, edged, sharp catch at second slip! Stokes has found some good rhythm in this spell, but it's a loose poke outside off, really. Was just short of a good length, but quite wide, Hope hangs his bat out and the edge is grabbed by the captain. 60/3
Moeen Ali1325424.15518000
26.2 to KC Brathwaite, playing back and he's lbw on the stroke of tea! A huge appeal was given not out by S Ravi and England call the review, Moeen was very confident. Brathwaite was a long way across his crease, similar to how Moeen removed Amla a few weeks ago. There's no bat involved. It's three reds! Hitting leg stump full on. 76/4
30.6 to J Blackwood, Blackwood dances down early, Moeen fires it flat and wide and through to the keeper, who completes a smart stumping! They've got Blackwood this time, feeding on his attacking instincts and then cannily bowled, leaving the batsman stranded by a good few inches as he threw himself back for the crease. 102/5
