England resumed their second innings on Day 3 at 39 for five. They looked to be little bit in their approach. Both over night batsmen Gary Ballance and Ben Stokes scored some important runs. Veerasammy Permaul broke the partnership when he got rid of Ballance. This was very well-palnned wicket. Permul was consistently bowling outside off-stump. The wicket ball pitched out side off and came in. Ballance had to play it. The left-hander defended, the ball took the edge of the bat and carried to slip. A very good low catch by Darren Bravo. Live Scorecard: West Indies vs England 3rd Test Day 3
