23:34 (IST)

Excellent batting from England's openers in the final hour as they keep West Indies at bay. England, at stumps on Day 3, are 15/0 and trail West Indies by 99 runs. See you folks tomorrow for Day 4.

23:29 (IST)

No risks and more of leaving the ball alone is the approach Sibley and Burns are taking here. One more over to go in the day with England at 11/0. Can Holder strike? Or will England hold out?

23:21 (IST)

Another good battle in the last couple of overs with the bowlers bowling some probing lines to both Burns and Sibley, but they've so far shown a good idea of where the off-stump is. England are 11/0 and Jason Holder's brought himself into the attack. 

23:16 (IST)

Little wonder he insists on the angle he does! 

23:14 (IST)

Four! Gabriel over pitches a slight bit and Burns is quick to pounce on to that. Four runs down to mid on will help as they look to get through the final phase without losing a wicket. 

23:13 (IST)

The pace of play has obviously dropped quite a bit over here and Roach has taken his time with the maiden over. England won't mind that actually and are 11/0.

23:04 (IST)

Another fantastic over from Roach but Dom Sibley has managed to get off the mark and off the pair. England just looking to survive the last half hour over here as any wickets for WI will really cause panic in the hosts dressing room. England are 6/0. 

23:00 (IST)

Superb opening over from Gabriel as he has Rory Burns in a spot of bother with his pace and movement. After two overs England are 5/0 and neither batsmen are really comfortable with the ball moving around off the surface.  

22:51 (IST)

England have their first runs in the second innings as Burns gets an edge of Roach and that has run away for a boundary rather rapidly. 

22:50 (IST)

Here we go! 

22:41 (IST)

OUT! England have cleaned up the West Indies tail and they have been bowled out for 318 with Mark Wood getting Shannon Gabriel at the end. England will have a deficit of 114 runs to knock off before they can think of making the visitors bat again. 

22:36 (IST)

Shannon Gabriel gets off the mark with a boundary, all valuable runs here for WI as they look to frustrate the English here a little bit more. The lead stands at 113 runs for the visitors. 

22:32 (IST)

OUT! Another wicket for Ben Stokes and it is a big one as Shane Dowrich is dismissed for 61, looking to play a leg glance but keeper Buttler completes an easy catch. Ben Stokes has four wickets now in the innings and is carrying on despite an injury. WI lead by 109 runs with one wicket to go.

22:30 (IST)

100 overs up in the West Indies innings and Dowrich has ensured he will be on strike for the next one by driving Wood down the ground for three runs to mid-off. West Indies lead by 105 runs right now with the shadows starting to get longer slowly. Dowrich is batting on 57 with Kemar Roach for company. 

22:24 (IST)

OUT! Stokes has responded and how! Fast and through the gate to Joseph and knocks over the off stump! WI are 306/8 with the lead at 102 runs. Third wicket for Stokes in the innings. 

22:23 (IST)

Four & Lead Crosses 100! Edged and four again for Joseph, that's 10 runs from the first three deliveries of the over. Lead at 102 now for WI. 

22:20 (IST)

Four! Short to Joseph from Stokes, who's a little uncomfortable with a toe problem, and Joseph's guided it away to the third man fence. 300 up for West Indies.

22:18 (IST)

Joseph has negotiated the Mark Wood over with a relative amount of ease and helped add another 5 crucial runs to the lead. WI are 296/7 and lead by 92 runs. Crossing the 100-run mark will be a huge psychological boost for the West Indies side before they come out to bowl next! 

22:09 (IST)

Mark Wood bounces Dowrich down to the non-striker's end and then looks to find the blockhole against Alzarri Joseph, who's taken the half volley on offer of the last ball and driven it away for a boundary with some poise! WI are 291/7 with the lead at 87 runs. 

22:04 (IST)

Big over from Stokes as he dismissed the opposite captain and England now have the bowlers to deal with. WI with the score at 286/7 will be hoping Dowrich can guide the tail through this phase. 

21:59 (IST)

OUT! Ben Stokes with a short one to Jason Holder, who's looking for the stands but has not connected and Jofra Archer comes around to take the catch at fine leg. Holder gone for 5 with the WI lead at 77. 

21:57 (IST)

Back after the drinks break and Wood's looking to scalp a wicket here with his pace. But Dowrich and Holder combine to make that a productive five run over for West Indies. Score: 281/6 with the lead at 77. 

21:52 (IST)

Drinks break now, with West Indies leading by 72 runs and the score reading 276/6. Anderson's been England's most successful bowler so far with three wickets. Will we see Dom Bess now in the final hour?

21:49 (IST)

Fifty! Dowrich knocks Stokes into the gap at midwicket for a couple of runs and has completed a well made half-century! 

21:44 (IST)

Quiet phase in play for West Indies, much needed as they would not want to lose a second wicket quickly here. Wood, Archer and Anderson together have conceded three runs since the wicket in three overs. WI are 270/6 with the lead at 66. Ben Stokes is bringing himself on now. 

21:32 (IST)

Not what they wanted! 

21:29 (IST)

OUT! James Anderson has his man as England force the review and have the decision overturned. Roston Chase's vigil is complete after he was trapped on the pads for 47. WI are 267/6.

21:19 (IST)

Six runs of that Anderson over, who has not enjoyed bowling with the new ball post tea as yet! West Indies motoring along and lead by 62 runs.

21:17 (IST)

Four! More boundaries and an even more disappointed Anderson here as he bowls down legside and Dowrich glides it away to the fine leg boundary. West Indies are starting to pick up the pace here. 

21:14 (IST)

Archer's responded with a good fast and probing over here as Chase and Dowrich manage a single each. WI are 260/5 after 86 overs and the batsmen aren't having much trouble against the new ball on a surface that has eased out due to the sun today.

Day 2 Recap:

After a rain-curtailed day one of the first Test between England and West Indies at Southampton, fans were in for a treat on Thursday as finally cricket of substantial proportions was played between the two sides. The visitors clearly dominated the days proceedings as they ended day two with 57/1, just 147 runs behind England 204.

The day began with England at 35/1. One would have expected the hosts to put a good show with the bat in familiar conditions, but to total surprise were blown away by the Windies pace attack.

To start things off, Joe Denly was the first casualty of the morning after Shannon Gabriel hit the timber, after only 13 runs were added to the overnight score. Soon after to depart was Rory Burns (30), who misread a yorker from Gabriel, and was trapped in front of the wickets.

What happened after that was a masterclass from Windies skipper Jason Holder. He swung the ball late, with vicious bounce to record his career-best figures of 6/42. He just didn't give an inch to any batsman he bowled to.

When Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, during their stand of 70 runs, were trying to repair the English innings, Holder stood between them and removed them both in quick succession of each other. Both were caught behind by Dorwich.

With this Holder completed his seventh fifer in Tests, and stamped his authority as best all-rounder in the Test arena. To wrap up the innings, Gabriel removed the last man -- James Anderson for 10, not before he strung a crucial partnership with Dominic Bess, of 30 runs.

Throughout the innings, England struggled to get partnerships going, but that wasn't the case when the Windies came out to bat, in rather tricky conditions.

John Campbell attacked the bowler right from the word go and smashed 28 from 36 balls. That might look like a low score, but a quick innings is what the visitors needed to get going.

He added 43 runs for the first wicket along with Kraigg Brathwaite.

Soon after the first wicket fell, the match was stopped due to bad light.
