80.4 Roston Chase to Sam Curran

OUT! Stumped. Roston Chase to Sam Curran. Off break length ball, down leg side down the track working, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper, by Hope. Chase spots Curran on the charge so fires this down leg, leaving the young left-hander stranded. Hope keeps his cool to whip the bails off and spark wild celebrations in Bridgetown. Chase finishes with eight wickets and Windies go 1-0 up in the three match series. What a sensational few days for Jason Holder's men this has been. West Indies have annihilated England by the massive margin of 381 runs in Bridgetown to take an early lead in the series. The tourists were left staring down the barrel after being set an impossible 628 for victory, but started brightly this morning thanks to an eye-catching Rory Burns half century. His dismissal on the brink of lunch saw the momentum shift as Roston Chase pick up the first of an amazing eight wickets at the Kensington Oval. The offspinner didn't turn the ball a long way but mainly deceived the English batsmen with deliveries that went straight on with some extra bounce. He aptly finished off the match by taking his 50th Test wicket on his home ground. Joe Root will reflect on an yet another awful day for his batsmen as loose strokes gifted the hosts wickets again and again. There are only a few days until the Second Test in Antigua with plenty for the tourists to work on. Jason Holder scoops the player of the match award for his emphatic double century, he has a massive smile on his face as he soaks in the moment. Every single member of his team has delivered at some point over the past four days in a perfect Test match for the Windies.

19.6 John Campbell to Keaton Jennings

John Campbell to Keaton Jennings. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dowrich. Day Three at the Kensington Oval belongs to two local Bajan boys, Jason Holder and Shane Dowrich. They batted in differing styles but were equally effective as the tourists wilted in the Bridgetown heat. Their unbroken seventh wicket partnership of 295 was ruthless and allowed the Windies to declare with a monumental lead of 627. Holder reached a maiden Test double century with a series of brutal pulls and drives, while Dowrich was more circumspect in reaching his third Test century. England were sloppy in the field and lacklustre with the ball, a really tough day at the office for Joe Root and his men. Credit to their openers though, Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings survived a potentially tricky period before stumps. That meant not a single wicket fell all day in stark contrast to yesterday when we saw eighteen dismissals. England will be hoping for no more wickets tomorrow as well because the surface is looking very flat, however the Windies bowlers will be fired up looking to take an early series lead.

17.6 Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns

FOUR! Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Gorgeous, that's the best stroke we've seen so far in this innings. Burns leans into a fluid crunch down the ground as Joseph offers up a half volley to take England to fifty.

17.5 Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns

APPEAL! Alzarri Joseph to Rory Burns. In-swinging length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Hetmyer, appeal made for L.B.W. Much stronger appeal this time yet the umpire still isn't interested. It looked like it just pitched outside the line of leg stump because Joseph jumped wider on the crease. Ball tracking confirms.
