STUMPS! England end the day 37 for 2, leading by 219 runs. Ben Stokes is still there, so England will want some quick runs in the morning session on Day 5 before pushing for victory. The game is interestingly poised, do join us on Day 5.

23:18 (IST)

WICKET! Roach again. Gets Zak Crawley this time. Crawley misses this one completely and is out bowled for 11 off 15. England 2 down.

22:56 (IST)

WICKET! The move to open with Buttler hasn't worked. Roach bowls it wide of off stump, Buttler drives and gets an inside edge to the stumps. Gone for a duck!

22:53 (IST)

Look who's opening for England. It's Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. Seatbelts on, folks.

22:43 (IST)

WICKET! Woakes gets Gabriel bowled with a slower one to end with three wickets. West Indies 287 all out. England gets a lead of 182.

22:36 (IST)

WICKET! Woakes strikes, gets Roston Chase. This one nipped back in from outside off and struck him on the pad. The umpire gave him out but England reviewed and got three reds. Chase gone for a well made half-century.

22:32 (IST)

FIFTY! Roston Chase gets to a well compiled half-century, flicking Curran for a couple. Important knock this, has helped West Indies avoid follow on.

22:15 (IST)

Roston Chase pulls Curran for a boundary... and West Indies save the follow on! That should make their job easier, but certainly it's not done.

22:07 (IST)

REVIEW! Sam Curran strikes Roach on the pads and reviews a not-out lbw call, but it's hit the bat. Stays not out.

22:01 (IST)

WICKET! Woakes comes into the attack and gets Jason Holder. He pokes outside off and edges to the slip cordon. WI 260/8, trail by 209. Can they save follow on?

21:38 (IST)

WICKET! Broad again, gets Dowrich for duck. Broad's not going to be dropped again, is he? Dowrich struck on the backfoot. He reviews, but in vain. Three reds.

21:27 (IST)

WICKET! The hero of the first Test, Jermaine Blackwood is gone for a duck. Broad strikes again. Nips back in and keeps low, goes through the batsman to hit the stumps. WI 248 for 6, in trouble.

21:23 (IST)

REVIEW! Chase survives. Sam Curran strikes him on the pad and gets the lbw decision in his favour, but it has pitched outside leg stump. Small margins!

21:19 (IST)

The wicket:

21:14 (IST)

WICKET! Stuart Broad strikes. Brooks is gone lbw and Broad doesn't even appeal. That's plumb. Brooks doesn't review either. Struck on the backfoot, right in front of the stumps. WI 242/5, Brooks gone for 68.

21:04 (IST)

The second new ball is due... and England take it. Stuart Broad takes the second new ball. He's wicketless so far, can he strike now?

20:54 (IST)

Pictures coming in of Jofra Archer resuming training. He's just jogging around, wearing a mask.

20:50 (IST)

Back for the final session. Let's see if West Indies can hold on.

20:29 (IST)

West Indies go into the Tea break with the score are 227/4 after 76 overs. They trail England by 242 runs and need to score another 43 to make the hosts bat again. Shamarh Brooks is unbeaten on 60. 

20:26 (IST)

Expensive over from England's point of view as Broad goes for seven runs. Brooks adds another boundary to his tally as WI move on to 225/4. They are less than 50 runs away from making England bat again. 

20:20 (IST)

England turn to Dom Bess with his opposite number Roston Chase in the middle. Chase and Brooks are watchful and take no risks as WI move to 215/4 with tea fast approaching.  

20:10 (IST)

Fifty! Brooks knocks it around the corner against Woakes for a couple of runs and completes his fifty! Some very stylish shots coupled with some immaculate control so far from him. 

20:06 (IST)

Woakes fails to keep the pressure up from his end as he affords Brooks an easy boundary through point and then strays down the leg side! Eight runs of the over for West Indies who move to 209/4 after 70 overs.

19:57 (IST)

OUT! Big breakthrough for England as Ben Stokes gets Kraigg Brathwaite for 75. Stokes surprises him with a sharp short one and it lobs up to the bowler for an easy catch. West Indies are 199/4. 

19:53 (IST)

Four! Woakes bends his back once again and Brooks opens the face of the bat with very soft hands towards third man. Ben Stokes is the man chasing, but he can't keep it in. Excellent shot. 

19:47 (IST)

Woakes into the attack as Root looks for a wicket in the lead up to the tea break. Not much trouble so far for Brathwaite and Brooks, both approaching their century and half-century. 

19:46 (IST)

Woakes into the attack as Root looks for a wicket in the lead up to the tea break. Not much trouble so far for Brathwaite and Brooks, both approaching their century and half-century. 

19:42 (IST)

Stokes responds well to the Brooks boundary and ends the over with a nicely directed short one which the batsman can't away. England however need wickets with WI at 192/3 and 78 runs away from saving the follow on. 

19:39 (IST)

Four! Back of a length from Stokes and Brooks stands up tall and punches it away for a boundary! 

19:37 (IST)

Crisply driven away! 

England vs West Indies 2020 Highlights, 2nd Test at Manchester, Day 4: As It Happened

England vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 3 latest updates: STUMPS! England end the day 37 for 2, leading by 219 runs. Ben Stokes is still there, so England will want some quick runs in the morning session on Day 5 before pushing for victory. The game is interestingly poised, do join us on Day 5.

DAY 3 REVIEW: Not even a single delivery was bowled as persistent rain in Manchester washed out the third day’s play of the second Test between England and West Indies. Rain forced players to stay inside their respective dressing rooms with covers firmly in place at The Old Trafford through the day. West Indies still trail by 437 runs in the first innings and are at 32 for 1 in reply to England’s 469 for 9. Through the first two days, Ben Stokes (176) and Dominic Sibley (120) shared a 260-run stand for the fourth wicket. The visitors had lost the wicket of John Campbell before stumps on Day 2 with Kraigg Brathwaite and night watchman Alzarri Joseph in the middle.

West Indies would be the happier team given they lead the series 1-0 and are on the backfoot in the ongoing second Test. The forecast for the remaining two days is promising, which means there should be plenty more cricket in this Test. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) earlier on Saturday announced that pacer Jofra Archer has been fined an undisclosed amount for breaking the bio-secure protocols. Archer had been left out of the squad for the second Test after he made an unauthorised visit to his home in Hove, a move that was criticised by many. However, he will be available for selection in the final Test and will rejoin the Test squad on July 21 should he twice test negative for coronavirus during a five-day self-isolation period at Old Trafford.
