West Indies suffered a batting collapse and were reeling at 61 for six at stumps on the third day of the second Test against England at Trent Bridge. The Caribbean side is facing a humiliating loss as they are just three runs ahead of England in the second innings, and have only four wickets in hand.

A win in the second Test will ensure series win for the home side, who took 1-0 lead after their five-wicket win in the first match at Lord’s.

Tim Bresnan was the star performer for the English side in the final session, as he claimed three wickets for just 10 runs off his six overs.

The West Indies side now have their hopes pinned on Marlon Samuels (13 not out) and West Indies captain Darren Sammy (nought not out), who both made hundreds in the first innings, were together at the close.

Earlier in this match they’d shared a stand of 204 but it was now going to take something special, with two days left, to prevent world number ones England, who won the first Test at Lord’s by five wickets, from going 2-0 up in this three-match series.

James Anderson removed both West Indies openers in a spell of two wickets for three runs in eight balls while fellow seamer Tim Bresnan followed up with three for nine in 26.

Brief Scores: West Indies 370 & 61 for 6 (Darren Bravo 22, Marlon Samuels 13*; Tim Bresnan 3 for 10) lead England 428 (Andrew Strauss 141, Kevin Pietersen 80, Tim Bresnan 37*; Ravi Rampaul 3 for 75, Kemar Roach 2 for 90) by 3 runs
