Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: England vs Windies, 2nd Test, Day 3, Antigua
Windies team going for a lap of honour and soaking in all the applause. And England are nowhere to be seen!
WINDIES WIN BY 10 WICKETS: Polished off in true Caribbean style - with a six! All of 13 balls to seal the series and there are high-fives all over. Holder is ecstatic, watching from the dressing room.
ALL OUT: Four-fer for Holder now as Anderson chipped a slower delivery to a diving Joseph at mid-on. England fold for 132 in their second innings and Windies' target is just 14. Join us back in ten for Windies reply, which is a mere formality.
Nine down, one more to go: Roach grabs his fourth! Broad trapped leg-before and he contemplates a review before deciding against it. Good call - as plumb as it gets.
And, eighth one. Holder inflicts further damage. Buttler is given LBW, but he thinks height might just save him. So, he goes for a review but it's "umpire's call" on hitting the stumps which means the on-field decision will stay, which means Buttler will depart now, leaving England with two wickets in hand and still a run behind WI.
Third for Roach, more trouble for England. Another very good use of a review by Holder. Foakes, despite being hit a couple of times on his heavily strapped right hand, had done well to collect a few boundaries and help England get a move on but his fightback will last only 15 balls. Loud appeal for LBW on that inswinger from Roach. It's turned down but ball tracking returns three reds and there you go, England are seven down and still trail Windies by a run. This is ending by tonight, anyone?
And another one bites the dust! Undone by sheer pace and Moeen's off-stump goes for a walk! England are still in deficit, btw. Foakes comes out, with heavy strapping. Remember, he injured himself in the first innings and did not keep for Windies'.
FIVE DOWN: Inside edge, onto the stumps and Stokes is disappointed with himself. Roach joins the party. England inching closer and closer to that series loss. Here comes Mo.
And, we're back!
TEA! England are still 44 runs behind, they have six wickets in hand and their aim of gaining series parity is fading by the minute! Join us back in 20 for the final session of this gripping Day 3 in Antigua.
And Denly now. England are collapsing! Four down for 59 on the board! Second wicket for Joseph.
WI Review, Root departs: Good use of a review from Holder, who was at first slip. The keeper and Holder went up in appeal but nothing from the bowler, Alzarri Joseph. Holder was confident and went for a review immediately and the UltraEdge shows a clear spike as the ball passes Root's bat. There you go, England three down with still 63 runs behind WI.
Holder at it, again! and he gets the important wicket. It's Jonny Bairstow. He goes for a big drive with his feet firmly rooted. Misses and the ball kisses the stumps! In comes Joe root
Holder replaces Roach, and strikes first ball! Back of length ball but angling into the batsman, and Burns was cramped attempting that cut. Hands it straight to John Campbell at third slip! England lose their first wicket. Here's Bairstow, after having kept for a day and a half.
Back after Lunch!
LUNCH: England have negotiated the four overs before Lunch safely, with the openers putting on 9 runs so far. WI still lead by 110. Join us back in 40
Denly and Burns out to open the innings. Roach has the new ball.
ALL OUT: Moeen picks the last wicket, of Bravo and WI are bowled out for 306.
Stokes strikes with his first ball of the day: Brilliant low catch by Rory Burns. England are making up for their lapses yesterday, and how! Joseph fends a rising ball to third slip and Windies are nine-down now.
Edged and taken! Anderson strikes again and this time the victim is Kemar Roach. Brilliant take by Stokes at second slip. Eight down now, with a lead over 100.
Who needs a bouncer when you can get the ball to subtly shape away and square up perhaps the current best all-rounders in the world? James Anderson simply gets one ball to do just that and Holder nicks away. There was a bit of extra bounce on that length ball too that did Holder in. Easy catch for Bairstow to give England their first of the morning. Windies 281 for 7.
Early ploy from England
After a bit of a chat with his pace duo of Anderson and Broad, Joe Root brings in a forward short leg fielder. Darren Bravo carefully played out an over with a generous assortment of short deliveries. More of that to come from Anderson too?
Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the second Test between Windies and England in Antigua. Despite Stuart Broad's triple strike, Windies managed to take an 85-run lead in the first innings, with 4 wickets in hand. An in-form Jason Holder and Darren Bravo in an unconventionally conservative fashion will resume the innings for the hosts.
Alzarri Joseph, who lost his mother on Saturday morning, is unlikely to take part in the third day's play, and his involvement in the rest of the match is also under doubt even as he was a part of the team huddle in the morning.
Cricket West Indies, in a statement, asked the spectators to "please join us as we express condolences to Alzarri and his family".
