Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: Windies vs England, Day 1, 1st Test, Bridgetown
With a wicket falling in the last over of the day, the referees have decided to stumps. Shimron Hetmyer remains unbeaten on 56, while witnessing a dramatic collapse. Four wickets fell in the last 40 deliveries of the day.
The collapse just doesn't seem to end. Kemar Roach pushes at a delivery outside, and gives Sam Curran, an easy prey. Roach can't believe it. Windies have lost their eighth wicket.
Anderson will trigger a collapse here. Jason holder offers a simple return catch. Windies innings to fall apart faster than you want to. Fourth wicket for Anderson.
A freak delivery, and a terrible answer, which has led the sixth wicket. James Anderson is clumsy legcutter bounced and left Shane Dowrich in a strange position, while ducking away. The ball got the edge and lobbed to the slip. Third wicket for the veteran pacer.
Once again, another batsman got off to a good start, notched up to fifty, and got out. Roston Chase goes on the hunt for a way to go, the delivery and Joe Root to slip a regulation catch. Second wicket for James Anderson!
Roston Chase can not be accelerated as quickly as Shimron Hetmyer, but the majority of the strike in the fifth wicket stand, he has a fine of fifty to strengthen the Windies innings.
Shimron Hetmyer is not to bat the way Windies as the bat in the Tests. He has unleashed against Adil Rashid and threw him for a six and a boundary off consecutive deliveries.
James Anderson-persistence pays off. The nagging in the queue in front of-finally, Shai draws Hope playback of a recording, and leads to an outer edge of the 'keeper. Wicket No 4!
Shai hope a half century has brought. Once again, he is the outstanding batsman for the Windies after the two openers came out for the 40s. A great deal of responsibility to help him, Windies post a good first innings score.
It rained for quite some time, but only because it decided to be a little harder, the referee have to stop the playback. It is expected that a short interruption. The referees have decided to take tea.
STOKES ON FIRE! Darren Bravo-Test return is cut short as he is trapped legbefore by Ben Stokes. Two wickets in quick succession has England at the top for the first time today.
WICKET! Like so many times, it is Ben Stokes, ending a strong partnership. Kraigg Brathwaite is defiant innings cut short by a delivery that had him squared up. The edge flew to Joe Root slips!
Slow, steady, and probably boring. But Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai hope, have proved to be very effective against the English bowlers and was brought a half-century. 103/1.
Kraigg Brathwaite took his scoring rate in the second hour, but only by his own standards. Still, he had hope the team safely to lunch without further loss, in the company of Shai. 89/1 at lunch.
FIRST STRIKE!!! Moeen Ali strikes from the first ball of his second over. Sweep search of the offspinner, he finds, and is trapped legbefore.
Windies have seen from the first hour of the game without taking any damage, with the openers batting in contrasting color fashion. While Kraigg Brathwaite Battuta has runs of 48 balls for 5, Campbell was pulled 29 out of 42.
Ben Stokes, playing his 50th Test, has as the first-change bowler. Earlier in the day, Steve Harmison gave him his 50. cap.
James Anderson and Sam Curran works with the new ball to swing the ball and troubled the openers, the duo a little. But has no damage in the first 45 minutes of the game. Windies 25 for no loss.
During the pitch report, Daren Ganga observed that "(It is) Going to be dry and Sunny. 255, the average first innings score is. The pitch is a little dark and this is due to the water you have in the last 2-3 days. Will be interesting to see who will come out on top on the first day". With the Dukes ball in England, the new-ball pair can be difficult to negotiate.
Windies won the toss and to bat-elected. John Campbell makes his international debut, Darren Bravo back in the side.
