HIGHLIGHTS

  • 22:49 (IST)

    Ben Stokes rues England's batting failure in the first innings. He says he doesn't regret batting first or leaving Stuart Broad out. Despite the loss, he says he enjoyed captaincy but will be happy to hand it over back to Joe Root in the next Test.

    Jason Holder calls it one of the best victories they've had as a team. Credits the way West Indies played yesterday (Day 4), for fighting through tough periods. Holder also glad with Jermaine Blackwood's knock.

    Shannon Gabriel is the Man of the Match.

  • 22:34 (IST)

    A superb result for West Indies. They showed great grit to commit to this tour and have started with a victory on the field as well. Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph and Roston Chase shone with the ball at different stages. Their batsmen made steady contributions throughout. A top win this. They've now won four of their last six Tests against England.

  • 22:24 (IST)

    WEST INDIES WIN! Campbell with the winning run, slams a boundary and then follows it up with a single to help West Indies win by 4 wickets. What a win this. They were 27 for 3 chasing 200 and then Jermaine Blackwood led the middle order recovery with 95. Terrific effort to go 1-0 up.

  • 22:04 (IST)

    WICKET! Twist? Jermaine Blackwood falls for 95 and it's Stokes again with the wicket. Full, he drives it straight to mid off. Went for the glory shot there, with WI still 11 away.

  • 21:58 (IST)

    Less than 20 needed now. Anderson with the ball, hasn't got any sort of movement from this placid track.

  • 21:42 (IST)

    Jason Holder pulls Ben Stokes for a boundary, bringing the equation to 22 needed! Tense stuff, game slipping away from England.

  • 21:24 (IST)

    WICKET! Action packed here. The very next ball, Stokes has Dowrich caught behind. And this time it's not a no ball. Shorter ball, Dowrich jumps and edges to Buttler. An opening for England? WI need 32 more.

  • 21:23 (IST)

    WICKET but a no-ball! Ben Stokes has Dowrich caught at slips but he has overstepped. Oh dear, a possible opportunity for England but not to be.

  • 21:17 (IST)

    Another review by England in vain. Archer has Dowrich jumping and 'caught' down leg side but it's off the shirt. England have only one review left.

  • 21:13 (IST)

    Blackwood is playing a gem here. He has begun to take a bit of chances, goes after Wood and hits him over mid off for four. 162/4, chasing 200.

  • 21:09 (IST)

    Less than 50 needed now, as Blackwood slams a boundary through the off side. Can they hold their nerves?

  • 21:02 (IST)

    England review for an lbw call against Dowrich, but in vain. Had to give it a go though, they had 3 in the bank. Wood the bowler, ball was missing leg.

  • 20:58 (IST)

    Four runs added in three overs in the session. Archer and Wood in tandem. England need a wicket soon and they're trying to get that through sheer pace. 53 more runs needed.

  • 20:30 (IST)

    It's tea now and West Indies are in a decent position to kick on and win the match. They need 57 in the final session and have 6 wickets in hand. Blackwood's fifty has given them a fighting chance of taking a 1-0 lead. 

  • 20:04 (IST)

    FIFTY FOR BLACKWOOD! The half-century comes up with a lucky boundary as he outside edges one off Anderson and it evades the first slip and runs away for four. He's been exceptional thus far and will want to keep going. 

  • 19:40 (IST)

    OUT! Archer gets the breakthrough and it is Chase who has to walk back. An absolute snorter of a ball sees Chase get smacked on the shoulder and give a simple catch to Buttler behind the stumps. He's created something out of nothing here. 

  • 18:11 (IST)

    Hello and welcome to the second session of the final day of the first Test. West Indies need a good partnership now as that could well put them back in a good position to maybe win the Test. 

  • 17:33 (IST)

    LUNCH, DAY 5: Roston Chase survives a close lbw shout against Bess, and West Indies go into lunch at 35 for 3. Can they add 165 more? Will John Campbell come back to bat? Answers to these in the next session.

  • 17:18 (IST)

    WICKET! Mark Wood dismisses Shai Hope. Length ball on middle stump, Hope looks to defend and gets an inside edge to the stumps. Windies in trouble.

20:46 (IST)

Back for the final session. Jofra Archer to start it. It's Archer v Windies that will determine the game.

20:30 (IST)

It's tea now and West Indies are in a decent position to kick on and win the match. They need 57 in the final session and have 6 wickets in hand. Blackwood's fifty has given them a fighting chance of taking a 1-0 lead. 

20:19 (IST)

All that criticism - and the Twitter feud with Tino Best - seems to have fired Archer up. England will hope he can carry on bowling like this.

20:04 (IST)

FIFTY FOR BLACKWOOD! The half-century comes up with a lucky boundary as he outside edges one off Anderson and it evades the first slip and runs away for four. He's been exceptional thus far and will want to keep going. 

20:00 (IST)

Archer thinks he has got another when Shane Dowrich is given out caught behind. However he takes the review and it turns out it hit his elbow instead of the bat. Archer continues to look imperious. 

19:58 (IST)

Blackwood has now survived a couple of close appeals. He has been looking to play his shots for most of his innings but West Indies need him in the middle for a long time if they want to win this match. 

19:40 (IST)

OUT! Archer gets the breakthrough and it is Chase who has to walk back. An absolute snorter of a ball sees Chase get smacked on the shoulder and give a simple catch to Buttler behind the stumps. He's created something out of nothing here. 

19:35 (IST)

100 up for West Indies and they need a 100 more to win this Test. This has been quite the recovery from 35-3 and the hope will be that both Blackwood and Chase can continue to bat on. 

19:25 (IST)

If Blackwood and Chase continue to bat this way, West Indies still have a chance of winning this game. 

19:17 (IST)

England are in a bit of a mess right now. Zak Crawley misses a golden run-out chance and now a simple catch at slip goes through Rory Burns' fingers. These are the kind of things that could come back to haunt them. 

19:05 (IST)

Buttler puts down what was a tough catch to give Blackwood a reprieve and he then finds the boundary with a well-played shot off Archer. This is getting interesting now. 

18:52 (IST)

England are patiently probing for another wicket but Chase and Blackwood have been solid thus far. Neither are looking to score too many just yet but if they can bat out a few overs, there's still a chance to go for the win. 

18:37 (IST)

It's been a quiet session thus far, which is exactly what one would expect given West Indies will look to rebuild their innings. England, on the other hand, know another wicket or two could open the floodgates. 

18:28 (IST)

Will Bess' approach be rewarded with a wicket? Time will tell but he's been quietly impressive thus far. 

18:11 (IST)

Hello and welcome to the second session of the final day of the first Test. West Indies need a good partnership now as that could well put them back in a good position to maybe win the Test. 

17:33 (IST)

LUNCH, DAY 5: Roston Chase survives a close lbw shout against Bess, and West Indies go into lunch at 35 for 3. Can they add 165 more? Will John Campbell come back to bat? Answers to these in the next session.

17:18 (IST)

England vs West indies Highlights, 1st Test Match at Southampton, Day 5: As it Happened

England vs West Indies 1st Test Day 5 latest updates: WEST INDIES WIN! Campbell with the winning run, slams a boundary and then follows it up with a single to help West Indies win by 4 wickets. What a win this. They were 27 for 3 chasing 200 and then Jermaine Blackwood led the middle order recovery with 95. Terrific effort to go 1-0 up.

 

DAY 4 REVIEW: Alzarri Joseph struck twice and West Indies captain Jason Holder removed England stand-in skipper Ben Stokes as the tourists regained the initiative in the first Test with a late flurry of wickets at Southampton on Saturday, England were 284-8 in their second innings at the close of the fourth day, a lead of 170 runs in a match that marks international cricket's return from lockdown. England fought back during a fourth-wicket partnership of 98 between Zak Crawley and Stokes. But their 249-4 was soon transformed into 279-8 as five wickets fell for just 30 runs inside the final hour.

No sooner had Stokes fallen, then Crawley was caught and bowled by paceman Joseph for a Test-best 76. Suddenly, England's two batsmen at the crease - Pope and Jos Buttler -- were both on nought. Buttler, who overturned being lbw to Holder for five, fell for nine when bowled through a huge gap between bat and pad by Joseph. World Cup-winning wicketkeeper Buttler has now made just one hundred in his 42 Tests. And there was still time before the close for Windies spearhead quick Shannon Gabriel (3-62) to bowl both Dom Bess and Ollie Pope.

England were still one run behind West Indies' first innings 318 when Crawley came to the crease. But the 22-year-old, in his fifth Test, completed a well-made fifty when he reverse-swept off-spinner Roston Chase for four. Crawley, now facing the new ball, topped his previous Test best of 66 against South Africa at Johannesburg in January. Stokes, skippering the side in the absence of Joe Root, continued to lead from the front by driving Gabriel for four. The all-rounder had already top-scored with 43 in England's meagre first-innings 204 before the paceman was the pick of the hosts' attack with 4-49.

But for the second time in the match he fell to Holder. The towering West Indies paceman squared Stokes up and had him caught by Shai Hope, cleverly positioned as the finer of two men in the gully for the left-handed batsman. It was a tactical as well as personal triumph for Holder, ranked ahead of Stokes as the world's leading Test all-rounder. There was more joy for the Windies when Crawley, aiming legside, was caught and bowled by Joseph. England resumed on 15-0 in the first of a three-match behind closed doors series.

Although a batting all-rounder, Chase had taken a Test-best 8-60 when West Indies beat England at his Barbados home ground last year en route to a 2-1 series win. Chase made the initial breakthrough on Saturday when Rory Burns (42) carelessly cut him to backward point. Fellow opener Dom Sibley made a painstaking fifty off 161 balls. The very next delivery saw Sibley play on to Gabriel only for third umpire Michael Gough to rule the bowler had been guilty of a marginal no-ball.

But, two balls later, Sibley - still on 50 -- glanced Gabriel to Dowrich as he was yet again caught down the legside in his fledgling Test career. Joe Denly, potentially competing for a place with Sibley when Root returns following the birth of his daughter for next week's second Test at Old Trafford, needed a big score to bolster a lowly Test average of under 30. But instead he fell tamely for 29 when chipping Chase to Holder at short midwicket. The West Indies had been on top for most of this match, with Holder taking a Test-best 6-42 after losing the toss. Kraigg Brathwaite then made 65, the opener's first Test fifty in 22 innings, and Dowrich 61 as the tourists established a valuable first-innings lead of 114.
