Do join us tomorrow for all the action from Day 3. Till then, ciao!
EOD! Broad been's menacing, Anderson was economical, and so were Curran and Stokes but England will go back wicket-less. WI end the day with 30/0, having batted and battled 21 overs. The openers have stood firm and done a fine job to see off the new ball. Day 1 honours to Windies, who are leading the series 1-0.
What a spell! Seven overs on the trot but Broad will return wicket-less. He's tested Campbell thoroughly. But, such is the nature of the game. Here's the second bowling change - Curran.
Right then, we're back! Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell are at the crease. Anderson will open the attack
ALL OUT: Yorker and there goes Anderson's stumps. Gabriel picks his third wicket. Fast bowlers sharing all ten wickets amongst them. England have been bowled out for 187 in their first innings, after being put in to bat. Better show than Barbados, but still a slow score. Be back for WI first innings in 10.
Fourth for Roach: There shall be no late fightback from England. No more. Quite similar to the Rot dismissal. Extra bounce, ball hits the bat handle and its an easy catch for the fourth slip fielder. England nine-down. Here's Anderson.
And another one! Foakes departs this time. What a silly dismissal. Short ball, Foakes went for a pull, but is through with his shot a little too early. The ball ricochets and he's shattered his own stumps. He's disappointed as he walks back for 35.
Roach strikes, yet again! And England have lost the half-centurion after the session break. Moeen falls to a nothing shot!
Back after tea!
TEA: England have made a steady recovery. 172/6 at Tea. First hour after the Lunch break still belonged to WI, taking out the counter-attacking Bairstow and Stokes in quick succession. But since then this 79-run stand between Fokaes and Moeen has helped England crawl back into the game.
Fifty for Moeen Ali. Stabilising partnership this between Mo and Foakes.
And another one bites the dust! Stokes this time. Gabriel gets the wicket. Banged it short and just outside off. Stokes goes poking and gives away a simple edge for the keeper. England six-down. Here's Foakes.
Big blow: Second ball after the Lunch break and Roach has struck. LBW shout, again. Not given, again. Windies review, yet again. No inside edge, three reds and there's Bairstow on his way back. Roach gets the big fish.
LUNCH: Bairstow's fifty is the only positive for England in the second Test so far. He's looked absolutely at ease, while England have lost four wickets including their captain. Windies' session this. Join us back in 40 for post-Lunch session.
And the fall continues: Windies' slip fielding has been excellent this morning! Extra bounce again, and Buttler edges it to Campbell in second slip. Good diving catch this time. Ben Stokes walks out, earlier that he would have hoped.
Root departs! A collective fielding effort, and an unplayable bouncer from Joseph gets the credit for that dismissal. Root was trying to get away from that but the ball touched the top of his bat handle/glove and lobs up. Third slip attempted a back-pedalling catch but fails to pouch it but then, Shai Hope comes around from gully, puts in a dive and takes it! Third wicket for the Windies. England in early trouble. Here's Buttler.
STRIKE TWO: Alzarri Joseph comes into the attack and strikes right away. Denly's luck has fetched him only six runs and Windies would be relieved it's not cost them much. Short and wide - a textbook loosener from Joseph to begin with - and an equally awful shot by Denly who's edged it behind to the keeper. Here's skipper Root.
First runs: Good way to bring up the first runs, even if it's after four full overs. And the next ball, Burns edges one to second slip and England have suffered a blow already! Keemar Roach the bowler. Ohh, make that two... or NOT! Umpire's call! So close! Denly would have been on his way back without opening his account on Test debut. Trapped plumb in front, beaten on his off-drive, but the umpire says not out. Jason Holder reviews and it's clipping leg-stump but the technology says "umpire's call". Windies retain the preview but I'm still trying to wrap my head around how close it got. Lucky Denly!
Right then, here we go. Rory Burns and Joe Denly walk out. Kemar Roach has the new ball.
England: Rory Burns, Joe Denly, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Ben Foakes(w), Sam Curran, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
Windies: Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Shimron Hetmyer, Shane Dowrich(w), Jason Holder(c), Kemar Roach, Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel
TOSS: Windies have won the toss and have opted to field. No changes for the hosts. Couple of them for under-fire England. Broad comes in for Rashid and Denly makes his Test debut.
Toss coming right up!
