    An enthralling day of Test cricket! It looked like England were heading for a big lead but a superb comeback from West Indies has seen them end another day on a high note. At one stage, England were cruising with Stokes and Crawley building a strong partnership but the West Indian skipper led from the front and pulled his side back in the contest by dismissing Stokes yet again. Alzarri Joseph and Shannon Gabriel joined the party and ran riot in the final hour of play. With 5 wickets in the last session, this game has completely turned on its head.

    101.6 Shannon Gabriel to Ollie Pope, out, OUT! DRAGGED ON! This is just excellent bowling! Gabriel is proving that he is a force to be reckoned with. He was in the reserves but was added just a few days before the squad was announced and he is delivering the goods. Short of a length delivery around off, Pope hops to defend this one but gets an inside edge onto the stumps. What a session this has been for West Indies. Pope is disgusted with himself as he was the last recognized batsman in and England would have wanted him to continue on for the side. England lead by 165 runs. How many more runs can the hosts add?
