The 500th wicket that had eluded James Anderson on the opening day of the second session was finally scripted in the last session of Day Two. The ball snorted in and dismantled Kraigg Brathwaite s defence. And thus became Anderson the first English player to 500 Test wickets and overall sixth, after Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, Anil Kumble, Glenn McGrath, and Courtney Walsh.

Anderson then took one more wicket to reduce West Indies to 93 for 3 by the end of day s play, only after the visitors took 22-run lead.

Ben Stokes continued his domination on Day Two as well. After taking a stunning six-wicket haul, Stokes scored a vital half-century after England were pushed in the ruins. However, Kemar Roach stole the show with a five-wicket haul. He will now feature on Lord s honours board.

Stuart Broad delayed West Indies misery with a vital 38 runs, but could take England to 194 all-out, gathering 71-run lead.

In reply, West Indies lost Brathwaite in the third over. A few overs later, Kyle Hope joined his teammate in the pavilion, as Broad had him lbw for a mere 1.

Kieran Powell and Shai Hope, like they did in the first innings, offered resistance and added 48 runs for the third wicket, before Anderson came back into the attack and ended Powell s resilience on 45.

Brief scores:

West Indies 123 all-out (Kieran Powell 39, Shai Hope 29; Ben Stokes 6 for 22) & 93 for 3 (Kieran Powell 45, Shai Hope 35*; James Anderson 2 for 17) lead England 194 all-out (Ben Stokes 60; Kemar Roach 5 for 24, Jason Holder 4) by 22 runs.
