Cricket news - Live cricket score - Windies vs England, 2nd Test, Day 2, Antigua
It's advantage Windies at the moment, with a healthy lead of 85 on a pitch that still has a lot of life in it. Do join us tomorrow for what promises to be a fascinating Day 3 in this Antigua Test. Till then, ciao!
STUMPS: Windies 272/6 in their first innings, and claim another day of this game despite England's brief resurgence post Lunch. Bravo and Holder have stretched Windies lead to 85 at stumps on Day 2. Lot of application shown by the Windies batsmen, coupled with some poor catching from England fielders.
Play held up a bit. Bravo's been hit on his forearm.
WICKET: The pitch continues to play tricks and, in a manner very similar to Joe Root's dismissal yesterday, Dowrich's innings comes to an end. Buttler at second slip takes a comfortable catch this time. Another wicket to Broad. Windies lead, meanwhile, has just crossed 50.
A wicket for Anderson. Or not! Windies review and Dowrich survives. The batsman was confident and went for DRS immediately. Rightly so, it's missing stumps! More frustration for Anderson.
Back after Tea. Anderson with the new ball.
TEA: Windies have a lead of 25 going into the session break. But the second new ball is due right after. Dowrich and Bravo doing a fine job of preventing a total collapse after the hosts lost four in a heap in the hour after Lunch.
WI in the lead now! Five wickets still in hand. A lead of 75-100 could be vital.
Hetmyer departs: Reckless way to get out, but that's Hetmyer. Pulled Mo for a six to deep midwicket one ball ago, and this time, Mo tempts him with a tossed up delivery and the youngster takes the bait. Comes down the track to slog it down the ground but miscues and a running in Anderson takes a blinder and then vents all his frustration.
A wicket for Broad, finally! Nicked behind, and Hope will become the third WI batsmen today to miss his fifty. Legcutter from the pacer that gets the wicket. Hope stayed on the leg-side and managed a thin edge to the keeper. Broad can finally cheer up! Make that two in an over! He's shattered Roston Chase's stumps! Unplayable, absolutely unplayable. His offstump goes for a walk!
Moeen strikes! Breakthrough for England soon after the Lunch break. They needed this, after all the frustration in the morning session. And Brathwaite, like his fellow opening partner, misses out on his half-century. Tossed up delivery from the spinner, turning in. Brathwaite was looking to tuck it on the leg side for a single but gets the inside edge onto the pads and then into the hands of Jennings at FSL. Darren Bravo comes out to bat then.
Back after Lunch!
Lunch: Brathwaite and Hope have added 56 runs for their unbeaten second wicket partnership. WI will go to Lunch on Day 2 at 126/1. Another session to the hosts. Join us back in 40 for the post-Lunch session.
100 up! A boundary to long-off from Brathwaite and there's the team hundred for Windies.
Stokes breaks the opening stand: And finally the breakthrough England had been desperate for. Campbell edges one to slip and this time Buttler makes no mistake! Misses his half-century by just three runs - 47 off 118! Superb effort nonetheless.
Edged and dropped! Buttler the culprit at third slip. Broad finally manages an edge off Campbell and it's put down. The wait for England continues..
WI REVIEW: Broad has his man finally. Or so he thought. Campbell is given out, caught in slip, but he reviews. And it's off his elbow. So Windies survive and England will have to wait longer for that first success.
Right then. Ready to resume.
Welcome back! Action resumes in Antigua in half an hour. Windies claimed the honours on Day 1, with Roach and Gabriel sharing seven wickets between then to bowl out England for 187 and then the openers surviving the 21 overs in the day without any damage. The only solace for England was Bairstow and Moeen Ali's half-centuries. Intense 1.5 hours there in the end, with Brathwaite and Campbell putting a fine display of Test match batting. If you missed the action on Day 1, here's the report.
