Shivnarine Chanderpaul was dismissed after adding another feather to his ever-growing cap in the first session of Day Three of the first Test between West Indies and England at Antigua. He was batting as solidly as he ever has, but fell into a trap laid out by England, hitting James Tredwell to Ben Stokes at cover to get out for 46. At the other end Jermaine Blackwood decided that offence was the best way to go, scoring a good half-century after having gone into a shell last evening.

Chanderpaul was on the verge of going past Mahela Jayawardene as the seventh-highest run-scorer in all Test cricket. Chanderpaul achieved the landmark in excellent fashion, hitting back to back boundaries off Stokes. James Anderson started proceedings for England on Day Three, with Blackwood and Chanderpaul continuing from their overnight scores.
