HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:33 (IST)

    STUMPS! What a gripping day of Test cricket. Both sides had their moments, and the day in the balance (or perhaps slightly tilted towards West Indies). England 284 for 8 at the end of the day, leading by 170. They'll look to stretch that as much as they can. West Indies' big pacers will want to wrap it up quickly. A superb finish awaits on the final day.

  • 23:19 (IST)

    WICKET! And Gabriel strikes timber again, this time Pope is gone. Shorter length, bounces up awakwardly. Pope gets an inside edge and it hits the stumps. England lead by 165 and have two wickets in hand.

  • 23:14 (IST)

    WICKET! Gabriel strikes timber. Bess is gone. Full at a good pace, Bess cannot defend that. He misses and it hits off stump. England lead by 164 and have three wickets in hand.

  • 23:04 (IST)

    Joseph in the middle of a probing spell, and another quick Gabriel comes on. England lead 162 now.

  • 22:52 (IST)

    Dropped. Dowrich drops Dom Bess. Joseph finds the edge but a diving Dowrich can't hold on. How costly will that be?

  • 22:40 (IST)

    WICKET! No doubts about this one. Alzarri Joseph smashes Buttler's stumps. Full ball, Buttler drives and gets an inside edge to his stumps. Buttler gone for 9, England lead by 151.

  • 22:22 (IST)

    WICKET: And now Crawley goes! West Indies are fighting back. Alzarri Joseph with the dismissal. Length ball on middle, Crawley chips it back to the bowler. Two quick wickets and Windies are right back.

  • 22:16 (IST)

    WICKET! Ben Stokes is gone and it's Jason Holder again. This time from over the wickets, gets the ball to angle away. Stokes plays at it and edges to the slip cordon. England 249 for 4, Stokes out for 46.

  • 21:44 (IST)

    England's lead is past 110 now. West Indies need quick wickets, or this game is slipping away from them. A victory, at least, will be difficult. Kemar Roach, wicketless in this Test so far, comes on.

  • 21:28 (IST)

    And West Indies take the second new ball. Shannon Gabriel comes on.

  • 21:25 (IST)

    New ball is available now, but West Indies are yet to take it. Roston Chase continues. Stokes is getting into the groove now, has started attacking at every given opportunity.

  • 21:03 (IST)

    Crawley has reached his half-century with a boundary off Chase. Top knock this, has kept England going with good strike-rate as well.  The lead is now into the 70s.

  • 20:58 (IST)

    Stokes is showing patience, but gets off the mark with a nice and crisp boundary off Jason Holder. The WI captain won the battle in the first innings, let's see who'll win this one.

  • 20:48 (IST)

    All set for resumption. Stokes walks out, looks full of intent. Will he get going? This session will very well decide the game. Roston Chase with the ball.

  • 20:30 (IST)

    TEA: And it's tea time now. It was a good session for West Indies now, as two wickets came for the. The runs were hard to come by overall for England as they move to 165/3 and the lead is 51. 

  • 20:23 (IST)

    FOUR: Crawley dances down the track and dispatches Chase for a four over mid off. This is good, positive batting by the youngster. He has shown promise in testing conditions. England are 165/3 and lead crosses 50. 

  • 20:06 (IST)

    OUT: Chase has a wicket here. Denly just lobs one on to Holder and England lose third wicket here. An opportunity her for West Indies to get some wickets. England are 151/3 and Denly goes for 29. 

  • 19:50 (IST)

    This partnership between Crawley and Denly have scored runs at a slightly faster pace. Would England be looking to get a lead of 200 by lunch tomorrow, and then declare? That could be one of the ploys. For now the score is 143/2 and lead is 29.

  • 19:11 (IST)

    OUT: And finally Sibley is out. Gabriel removes him in the same over. Slides one down the leg side and Sibley edges it. It's 113/2.

  • 19:07 (IST)

    50 FOR SIBLEY: A resilient innings by Sibley, he brings up a fifty. And on the very next ball, he chops one on to the stumps. But it's a no-ball very marginally. That is a disaster for West Indies. It's 113/1. 

23:33 (IST)

STUMPS! What a gripping day of Test cricket. Both sides had their moments, and the day in the balance (or perhaps slightly tilted towards West Indies).

WICKET! No doubts about this one. Alzarri Joseph smashes Buttler's stumps. Full ball, Buttler drives and gets an inside edge to his stumps. Buttler gone for 9, England lead by 151.

22:35 (IST)

Buttler survives an lbw decision on DRS. He was given out to Holder, but he reviews successfully. Too high, says technology.

22:22 (IST)

WICKET: And now Crawley goes! West Indies are fighting back. Alzarri Joseph with the dismissal. Length ball on middle, Crawley chips it back to the bowler. Two quick wickets and Windies are right back.

22:21 (IST)

Watch Stokes' wicket here:

22:16 (IST)

WICKET! Ben Stokes is gone and it's Jason Holder again. This time from over the wickets, gets the ball to angle away. Stokes plays at it and edges to the slip cordon. England 249 for 4, Stokes out for 46.

22:01 (IST)

This is what Stokes is doing now. On song!

21:44 (IST)

England's lead is past 110 now. West Indies need quick wickets, or this game is slipping away from them. A victory, at least, will be difficult. Kemar Roach, wicketless in this Test so far, comes on.

21:28 (IST)

And West Indies take the second new ball. Shannon Gabriel comes on.

21:25 (IST)

20:23 (IST)

FOUR: Crawley dances down the track and dispatches Chase for a four over mid off. This is good, positive batting by the youngster. He has shown promise in testing conditions. England are 165/3 and lead crosses 50. 

20:15 (IST)

Suddenly West Indies are looking much more potent with their bowling. The batsmen are getting edges, and chances are being created. The score is 154/3. 

20:06 (IST)

OUT: Chase has a wicket here. Denly just lobs one on to Holder and England lose third wicket here. An opportunity her for West Indies to get some wickets. England are 151/3 and Denly goes for 29. 

20:01 (IST)

Roston Chase completes another over. One gets a feeling that Windies are not looking to attack and bowling a leg stump line, just to curtail the runs. The score has moved to 149/2 and lead is of 35.

19:50 (IST)

This partnership between Crawley and Denly have scored runs at a slightly faster pace. Would England be looking to get a lead of 200 by lunch tomorrow, and then declare? That could be one of the ploys. For now the score is 143/2 and lead is 29.

19:41 (IST)

The odd ball is moving viciously, but apart from that there is nothing much for the bowlers now in this pitch. Batsmen look utmost comfotable at the moment as the score moves to 137/2 and the lead is 23. 

19:35 (IST)

Again West Indies bowling has hit a lean patch where nothing seems to be working for them. The good part is that the runs aren't coming that swiftly too. England are 125/2 and the lead is 11.

19:22 (IST)

West Indies have new found energy now. A result is realistic here. If West Indies can bundle out the opposition in for the next 100 runs, who knows!! But for that they need to get quick wickets. England lead by 5 runs.

19:11 (IST)

OUT: And finally Sibley is out. Gabriel removes him in the same over. Slides one down the leg side and Sibley edges it. It's 113/2.

19:07 (IST)

50 FOR SIBLEY: A resilient innings by Sibley, he brings up a fifty. And on the very next ball, he chops one on to the stumps. But it's a no-ball very marginally. That is a disaster for West Indies. It's 113/1. 

19:01 (IST)

The English are very close to wiping off the deficit. Sibley has been exceptional and is approaching a fifty. Windies on the other hand have been sluggish on the field. The score is 106/1.  

18:53 (IST)

Jason Holder comes into the attack now, a little too late. Other bowlers haven't been that effective till now. He has by far been the best among them. England are 98/1. They trail by 16.

England vs West Indies Highlights, 1st Test Match at Southampton, Day 4: As it Happened

England vs West Indies 1st Test Day 4 latest updates: STUMPS! What a gripping day of Test cricket. Both sides had their moments, and the day in the balance (or perhaps slightly tilted towards West Indies). England 284 for 8 at the end of the day, leading by 170. They'll look to stretch that as much as they can. West Indies' big pacers will want to wrap it up quickly. A superb finish awaits on the final day.

Day 3 report: West Indies batsmen Kraigg Brathwaite and Shane Dowrich ensured that their team took a first-innings lead of over a hundred runs against England on the third day of the first Test at Southampton on Friday. Dowrich made 61 after opener Brathwaite had top-scored with 65 in a total of 318 all out. Ben Stokes led England's attack with 4-49 to follow his top score of 43 in the hosts' 204. But that still left West Indies 114 runs ahead in a match that marks international cricket's return from lockdown.

Stokes' haul included the wicket of West Indies captain Jason Holder for just five, with the England talisman having fallen to his rival all-rounder during the towering paceman's Test-best 6-42 on Thursday. The wicket of Alzarri Joseph was also his 150th in Tests. Dowrich showed grit and determination to score a fifty. He held firm for 115 balls until he was caught down the legside by opposing gloveman Jos Buttler off Stokes. For most part of the day, it was a struggle for England bowlers, and missed the presence of veteran paceman Stuart Broad.

Bowlers like Archer and Wood struggled to make an impression on a placid pitch. They took just one wicket between them in a combined 44 overs -- and that was only when Wood bowled last man Shannon Gabriel to end the innings. Earlier in the day, Windies had resumed at 57-1. Soon after the play started, Shai Hope perished to Dom Bess, when he edged one to the slips. Shamarh Brooks made a promising 39 before he was caught behind off James Anderson, with England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker returning innings figures of 3-62.

Jermaine Blackwood gave his wicket away by driving Bess (2-51) straight to Anderson at mid-off. Dowrich, however, drove Bess for two fours in three balls before, on 25, he hammered a drive the Somerset bowler could only parry. Holder couldn't do much with the bat and fell in single figures when, undone by a surprise bouncer, he hooked Stokes straight to Archer at long leg. At the end of the day, England finished with 15/0, 99 runs behind the West Indies.
