Windies bowled out for 318

Mark Wood gets the last wicket. This test is shaping up to be very interesting! 14 overs left in the day, WI lead by 114. England need to battle it out and a few early poles from WI will put then in prime position.

22:40 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Caught Behind!

Back of a length around leg, Dowrich jumps inside the line looking to whip it away but only manages a faint tickle on it. Regulation for Buttler to his left. Dowrich doesn't bother waiting for the umpire, he's on his way. Dowrich c Buttler b Stokes 61.

22:38 (IST)10 Jul 2020

Alzarri Joseph is gone for 18. A moment to cherish for Ben Stokes as he gets his 150th Test wicket.

Holder 1-1 Stokes

A big wicket for England's chances of making a game of this. Ben Stokes has his opposite number, Jason Holder, caught in the deep and England are into the tail. Holder departs for 7. This is the 12th Test in which opposing captains dismissed each other. The last instance was in Bulawayo in 2017/18 involving Jason Holder and Graeme Cremer.

21:41 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Anderson gets the breakthrough

James Anderson doing time and again. He traps Chase for 47 and West Indies 267/6 with 63 runs lead in first innings. Anderson has barley swung a ball all day but he’s still been England‘s best bowler by a country mile. Umpires have also been lacking some match practice it seems.

21:23 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Dowrich on the charge

Shane Dowrich smashes a boundary in the third ball of the 87th over to reach his 40s. Want to know how good he has been in the longer formar?

Back to back boundaries

FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries for Roston Chase off Jofra Archer. Windies must capitalise in this last session and really hammer home the advantage. England would have hoped for the new ball to do some magic but it is not working as of now. Meanwhile, this is the highest 6th wicket partnership for West Indies in England since 143 by BP Nash (81) & D Ramdin (61) at Lord's on 8 May 2009.

20:29 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Tea - WI lead by 31

The bails have been knocked off. West Indies go into the break at 235/5, with a lead of 31. They took the lead in the second hour of the session, with Roston Chase (27*) and Shane Dowrich (30*) batting through the last hour. The new ball will be available after the break.

20:26 (IST)10 Jul 2020

Big shouts from around the field as Bess gets a lbw shout. No one buys Bess's enthusiasm about taking the Review, England will also be looking to sneak in one more over after this before Tea.

20:22 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Last few minutes of the session

The second session has been shared between the two sides, it can be said. West Indies would have won the second hour if Chase and Dowrich can bat through to the Tea break, which is coming up in another few minutes. Another wicket would tilt the session in England's favour now though. The lead is now 31.

20:14 (IST)10 Jul 2020
232/5 after 77 overs

Dowrich pounces on a loose ball outside off stump to slam it to the off side boundary. Dowrich has quickly overtaken Chase's score, he is on 30 off 39 balls, with Chase on 24 off 105 balls at the other end. Three overs till the new ball is allowed.

20:10 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Runs dry up, chance for Bess

Dowrich attacks Bess. Mishits it. Ball flies straight to the bowler's hand but the ball is hit with so much power the bowler cannot hold on to that. Runs have dried up a bit in the last few over again, as the innings ebbs and flows. Chase content to present a straight bat to Bess, with minimal footwork. WI lead by 24

20:00 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Frustration for England

23 off 93 balls now for Chase, who is playing a typically stoic innings. The biggest thing this is doing in terms of the flow of the match is that the frustration is increasing in England's ranks. Could see how Wood almost had a defeated expression when he slipped and fell on his follow-through in the last over. The West Indies lead now 21.

19:54 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Bess under attack again

Bess also brought back - 8 overs remain aftee this for the second new ball to be allowed - and yet again the batsmen show their intentions to attack him from the outset. A whack of the bat from Dowrich and that pierces the infield and flies for four. WI 219/5, lead by 15 runs

19:48 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Wood comes back

Another outside edge runs down for a boundary, Dowrich the scorer that time. Mark Wood introduced into the attack after a long break. West Indies now lead by 6. If these two batsmen can frustrate the English bowlers for a little more, the toll could tell on the home side. Wood is bowling with three slips in place now though. England still in with a shout of keeping the lead down to modest proportions if they can break this partnership in the next few overs.

19:37 (IST)10 Jul 2020
Scores level

West Indies draw level, with both Chase and Dowrich looking to present a straight bat to every missile thrown at them. An intense period of contests, this one. Archer continues to push the batsmen into a shell but they manage to sneak in a single from time to time. West Indies take a lead of 1 run at the end of that over. WI 205/5

19:29 (IST)10 Jul 2020
WI trail by 2 runs

England are now operating with pace from both ends. Bess went for runs against Dowrich even though he did pick up the wicket. Stokes takes the conservative approach, looks to keep the West Indies lead down. Archer bowls short ball. Chase takes evasive action. The ball strikes his shoulder and runs for four byes. Frustration on offer for Archer. A chance to edge into the lead in the next over on offer for WI.
