22:50 (IST)

We shall see you in a few days time for the third and final Test at Manchester. Everything to play for in the third Test! 

22:48 (IST)

OUT! Dom Bess has wrapped it up here. Roach is caught close in with a magnificent effort and West Indies are bowled out for 198. England win by 113 runs and level the series 1-1.  

22:44 (IST)

Gabriel and Roach indulging in a blockathon here against Root and Bess. 15 overs to go as the umpires call for Drinks! We are into the final hour of the Test match. Can West Indies save this? 

22:40 (IST)

Bess in for another over with around the bat for Kemar Roach, who's plan is to keep blocking. Survives an LBW appeal as well as the ball pitches outside off stump. 16 overs to go. Nervy moments for those in the West Indies' corner. Roach finishes the over with a slog sweep for four. 

22:38 (IST)

Some discomfort for Ben Stokes as he pulls up after  the delivery. Joe Root will complete the over but Stokes is staying on the field. 

22:33 (IST)

Kemar Roach has been joined by Shannon Gabriel. Roach survives the over from Dom Bess. Just a matter of time for England.

22:30 (IST)

OUT! Joseph looks for an expansive drive through the point region but edges it to gully! Disappointing from Joseph and Michael Holding is making clear his opinion about that dismissal. He is not very happy. England need one wicket to win. 

22:25 (IST)

Couple of DRS calls of consecutive deliveries. Bess' appeals against Joseph turned down. Both sides used one review each. WI have 20 overs to survive. 

22:21 (IST)

Four! Stokes pitches up to Alzarri Joseph and he's driven it away in majestic fashion down the ground for a boundary. And struck a pose after that! 

22:15 (IST)

OUT! Top quality bowling from Bess to get his man! Spins it through the gap between bat and pad and Holder's stumps are broken. England are two wickets away. 

22:13 (IST)

Four and Six! Full toss outside off stump and Holder has smacks it away through the extra cover before going down on one knee and clubbing Bess over mid on for a maximum.  

22:11 (IST)

Joe Root has gone to Ben Stokes who will bowl to Jason Holder. Three runs of the over and Holder will be on strike for the next over. Not what Stokes wanted. 

22:07 (IST)

Dom Bess is back into the attack and Roach has played out the over without much ado. 24 overs left for WI to get through. 

22:01 (IST)

Four! Curran bangs it in short and Holder carts it away effortlessly for a boundary. Controlled shot from the skipper. 

22:00 (IST)

A maiden each from Broad and Curran to Holder and Roach. 26 overs for West Indies' lower order to survive. 

21:52 (IST)

Couple of stutters between Kemar Roach and Jason Holder while running. Not the thing the visitors need and Roach would not want to run his skipper out here. WI WI have 28 overs to get through. 

21:51 (IST)

Sam Curran making things happen. 

21:49 (IST)

All odds are in favour of the hosts over here understandably. But till Jason Holder is out there the WI will think they have a chance to pull through.

21:46 (IST)

OUT! Just what the doctor ordered for England. Sam Curran from round the wicket to Brooks and he is trapped LBW for 62. Does not take the Review and WI are seven down. England three wickets away from a big win. 

21:42 (IST)

Four! Very lucky for Jason Holder as Broad catches his inside edge but Buttler can't react fast enough and it runs away for a boundary. 30 overs to go.

21:36 (IST)

Sam Curran into the attack with the ball now doing almost next to nothing in the 54th over. Brooks pushes him to sweeper cover and picks up a couple of runs. 

21:29 (IST)

Distinct change in approach from West Indies as they are looking to frustrate the bowlers. Holder and Brooks digging in. Can Broad and Woakes get the break through? 

21:24 (IST)

Broad comes back into the attack now in place of Ben Stokes and Brooks has used his pace well to work him away for a boundary to third man and a couple to square leg. Takes WI to 150/6. 34 overs left in the day. 

21:21 (IST)

In case Stuart Broad needs an incentive. 

21:15 (IST)

The sun is out again as Holder and Brooks continue to keep away from danger. No rash strokes and solid defense has been the way forward in this phase of play. One expects more of the same. WI are 144/6.

21:08 (IST)

Stokes continues to pepper Holder with some short ones from round the wicket. Holder calmly plays out the over as WI look to take this by the over till stumps. England will feel more than confident of picking the four wickets they need quickly. 

20:58 (IST)

Jason Holder's swaying out of the way as Stokes peppers him with some short stuff. Brooks at the other end is on 53 and the visitors will be banking very heavily on this pair. 

20:54 (IST)

Four! Woakes greets Holder with a half volley on leg stump and the new man obliges with a flick through the leg side. Big task on hand for the captain now. 

20:50 (IST)

OUT! Woakes to Dowrich and it's struck him on the pads as he is falling over. Dowrich reviews and the third umpire confirms the on-field umpire's decision. It is out and England are four wickets from the win. 

20:45 (IST)

Shane Dowrich will join Shamarh Brooks now in the middle for the final session as England look to go for the jugular here. Anything less than a win will mean West Indies take the Wisden Trophy back with them. 

England vs West Indies, 2nd Test at Old Trafford, Day 5, Highlights: As it Happened

England vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 3 latest updates: OUT! Top quality bowling from Bess to get his man! Invites Holder to go big again and spins it in through the gap between bat and pad. England are two wickets away.

Day 4 report: Half-centuries from Kraigg Brathwaite (75), Shamarh Brooks (68) and Roston Chase (51) helped West Indies avoid the follow on, which left England racing against time to push for a victory in the second Test against West Indies in Manchester.

At stumps, England were 37 for 2, leading by 219 with Ben Stokes and Joe Root in the middle. The entire third day’s play was washed out by rain, and England will be looking to add quick runs on the fifth day before declaring as they had lost the first game of the three-match series in Southampton.

Half-centuries from Kraigg Brathwaite (75), Shamarh Brooks (68) and Roston Chase (51) helped West Indies avoid the follow on, which left England racing against time to push for a victory in the second Test against West Indies in Manchester.

At stumps, England were 37 for 2, leading by 219 with Ben Stokes and Joe Root in the middle. The entire third day’s play was washed out by rain, and England will be looking to add quick runs on the fifth day before declaring as they had lost the first game of the three-match series in Southampton.

West Indies resumed the day 32 for 1 and should have lost nightwatchman Alzarri Joseph early but the edge off Chris Woakes was put down in the slip cordon. Joseph went on to make a crucial 32 off 52 balls, adding 54 for the second wicket with Brathwaite before falling to off-spinner Dom Bess.

Shai Hope, whose lone two Test hundreds came at Headingley in 2017, helped Brathwaite add 53 before, on 25, he was caught behind jabbing at a Curran cutter.

West Indies’ 123-3 might have become 123-4 but Brathwaite, on 46, was spared by umpire’s call when England reviewed a Stuart Broad lbw appeal.

Brathwaite then completed a 121-ball fifty when he drove Broad down the ground for four.

Brooks elegantly eased Broad off his pads and drove Bess for two of nine boundaries in a fifty that came from just 96 balls.

Root set increasingly funky fields for Stokes and the paceman’s perseverance was rewarded when his 10th successive over of pounding the ball in short saw him dismiss Brathwaite.

Brooks and Brathwaite had added 76 for the fourth wicket before the latter was caught and bowled by the England all-rounder.

West Indies went to tea at 227/4 and needd 43 runs more to save the follow-on. It seemed like a mere formality but the second new ball turned things around drastically.

Stuart Broad, who was dropped from the side for the Southampton Test, ran riot and triggered a collapse dismissing Brooks, Jermaine Blackwood and Shane Dowrich in two overs. All three fell to in-nippers, with the last two faling for ducks.

Chase stood strong at one end to ensure West Indies avoided the follow on.

Chris Woakes then removed the tail to bring the England batsmen out. Both Woakes and Broad ended with three wickets each.
