Windies vs England, 3rd Test, Day 2


This ten-over period was crucial for Keaton Jennings who is clearly fighting to keep his spot. He has batted out 40 deliveries and remains unscathed. Rory Burns is out there with him as well. England get through to stumps without any damage. The lead is stretched to 142. The visitors will be confident of closing this game out in their favour.


Five for Wood

Full, straight and timber! Wood was cranking it up today and Wood gets rewarded with a five-fer. England have made a terrific comeback and they have fetched a lead of 123 runs in the first innings as a result. They will have to come out and bat now. They will probably have around 20 overs to bat until stumps.

Broad gets into the act

The seamer first raps Dowrich on the pads and is denied by the umpire. He convinces Root to take the review and gets the decision overturned. And then in the very next over, Joseph miscues one off Moeen and Broad, running backwards from mid off takes a one handed stunner. Top top catch. England are just one wicket away from bowling out the hosts.


Paul needs to do better. His team is struggling and there is a need to stitch a partnership but the youngster charges down the track and is beaten comfortably to get stumped. Moeen has his third wicket. Windies lose their seventh.

And Wood continues to torment…

Fast bowling at its finest from the man of the moment! Another delivery unfurled at great pace has snuffed out a Windies batsman here! Darren Bravo was wonderfully set up by Wood – the penultimate delivery before the wicket ball was fast and short and hit the left-hander high on his glove.Bravo stayed back in the crease in anticipation of another snorter of a similar kind, and ended up walking into the trap. The ball was fuller, and still very quick and lured the batsman into tentatively poking at it. Outside edge was somehow pouched by Joe Root at first slip, leaving Windies down to 79 for 6. And four of them for Wood!

3 for Wood

The players are heading for Tea and it is undoubtedly England’s session. Wood strikes once more just before Tea to get rid of Hetmyer. Extra bounce does the trick as the left-hander edges it behind to slip. What a session it’s been for the visitors. Windies lose five wickets for just 17 runs.
