Cricket news - Roach shines on 18-wicket day

Kemar Roach was the star of the day, bagging his 9th Test fifer

There was a lot of talk about the current Windies pacers rekindling memories of the bowlers from the days of their dominance on social media and in comments. For such a fine performance, as they delivered on Thursday, it was nothing new for those who have observed, you trouble team after team at home in the past year and a half. Their dominance at home tilt is only a stronger testimony as a demolished England for 77 in just one session, and complete the competition in their favor.

To hold during the procession of wickets, the lunch in the post-session Headliner of day 2, it was not the end of the drama as 18 wickets fell, with Windies 127 for 6 stumps, both teams in contention of a possible win.

The day began with Alzarri Joseph, to help the good support to Shimron Hetmyer in the first 45 minutes in the morning, extend the Windies first innings score of 289 after a late collapse on the opening day. While Joseph is not a run-of-shooting, he hung around to do his established batting partner, the run-scoring. Joseph was finally carried out by a fine delivery from James Anderson, caught the edge of the tail-ender's bat with an outs winger reached the 'keeper-of-hand safe to hand him his 27 Test fifer.

Hetmyer not long after, edging a slog to the 'Keeper and Ben Stokes give a four-fer in his 50th Test.

England opener waded from the first hour of the innings, sure, but Keaton Jennings fell late in the session in the morning, failed to resist the temptation to go after a delivery outside off. But the real disaster was to strike after the first session.

Roach, the in a spell of 4.3 overs, conceding 4 runs, led by Kemar five wickets to reduce England from 35 for 1 to 49-7. Rory Burns and Jonny Bairstow played, Ben Stokes, caught, Jos Buttler, caught behind and Moeen Ali top-edge a pull to Joseph to fine leg. The key to his actions, the pace and the bounce, apart from operating in the right areas, which led to the English batsman, in awkward positions during the playback of your recordings.

Jason holder is not back with nice numbers but played a crucial role, from the other end, while Roach led to the slaughter. He bowled tight lines, troubled the batsman with an awkward bounce, causing problems and secured the biggest wicket of them all - Joe Root - trapping, the English skipper with an in-depth delivery.

Sam Curran and Adil Rashid went on the attack, in spite of England's delicate position in the game, but it proved too little as Joseph introduced two lower bags to the wickets to the end of your answer to 77. Windies had the opportunity, the enforcement of the consequences, however, but decided.

The decision looked good as long as Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell were at the crease, as you stand on your second time in a row, a half-century. But, once again, both the opener had been dismissed soon after it started. But only this time, her dismissal sparked a collapse. In a matter of 28 balls, they were reduced from 52 for no loss to 61 for 5. Moeen Ali was on a rampage. Ben Stokes, joined the party from the other end as well. And to BAT all of a sudden, the decision-again seemed to have backfired.

Brathwaite came in a tangle, while rocking stumps on the lookout for play, the offbreak off the front foot and was caught in front of the tree. His partner Campbell, rose in a bizarre way, the edges of a blow to a wide and short delivery from Stokes to the cover fielder. What followed, after which a procession was. Darren Bravo registered his second failure in the examination, the slipping braid of a conventional off-break. Roston Chase followed in the same over in a similar way.

The dynamics to go with some sharp bowling from Moeen got in England a little bit excited, Stokes. In a bizarre decision, Stokes is the team to take influences, a review for a delivery that had left Hetmyer, alone on the 'keeper. For the third time that day, England you waste.

However, soon after, he made up for his error with a fine delivery that jagged back and took the inside edge of the Shai Hope that the bat on the way to Jennings at forward short leg to leave the Windies reeling at 61, 5.

However, the Windies enlivened their recordings courtesy of a 59-run stand between Hetmyer and Shane Dowrich. The sixth-wicket pair responded with the calculated attack and caution before the former fell late in the day to Sam Curran. Windies ended the day with a lead of 339.

Brief Scores: Windies 289 (Shimron Hetmyer 81, Shai Hope, 57; James Anderson 5-46, Ben Stokes 4-59) & 127/6 (John Campbell 33; Moeen Ali 3-41) lead England 77 (Keaton Jennings 17; Kemar Roach 5-17) by 339 runs.
