    ENG vs WI 1st Test Live: A very good day of Test match cricket. Both sides will be satisfied with their efforts if not too happy. At the beginning of the day it looked like West Indies were running away with it and looked like they would get a bigger lead but England came back stronger later on in the day and restricted the travellers’ lead to 114. Burns and Sibley then ensured that the hosts enter Day 4 with all their wickets in the kitty and trail under 100. England 15/0 and 204, trail West Indies (318) by 99 runs at Southampton.

    End of excellent innings from West Indies!

    ENG vs WI Live Score: End of excellent innings for the West Indies. They lead by 114 runs and they will be very happy with the total. They are dominating this game and are looking favourites going into this game. Their batsmen started with Kraigg Brathwaite scoring a well-deserved half-century. They certainly lost some wickets in the middle overs but the duo of Roston Chase and Shane Dowrich ensured that they get a good lead. Dowrich managed to reach his fifty and added some runs before he was dismissed. Holder, the skipper failed but they will feel that they have enough runs on the board to trouble the England batters.

    1st Test Live Score and Updates: OUT! Bowled! Pacy, full and straight and that is just too good for the visitors’ number 11. West Indies all out for 318. Wood steams in and bowls a full ball on middle and off, it shapes in a bit. Gabriel looks to free his arm and go for a big one but he misses, Wood doesn’t. West Indies 318 all-out in 102 overs, lead England (204) by 114 runs.

    ENG vs WI Live Score and Updates: OUT! Ben Stokes removes Shane Dowrich for 61. End of a lovely innings from Dowrich! He is one of the reasons for West Indies being in a strong position. Good length ball down the leg side, Dowrich looks to flick but gets a faint edge back to the keeper who makes no mistake. Shane is walking back and is not even waiting for the umpire’s decison. Stokes one wicket away from a 5-fer. West Indies lead by 109 runs with one wicket in hand. West Indies 313/9 in 100.3 overs, lead England (204) by 114 runs.

    1st Test Live Cricket Updates: OUT! CAUGHT! Ben Stokes removes Jason Holder for 5. It was Holder who got Stokes out on Day 2 and Stokes has returned the favour! This is just what England wanted, getting the opposite captain for a cheap score. England though still need to keep taking wickets and finish the tail as fast as possible. Stokes dishes a short ball around middle, Holder goes for the pull but does not time it well. It goes way up in the air and towards fine leg. Archer runs after it from fine leg and dives forward to take a good catch. West Indies lose their 7th wicket and they lead by 77 runs. Can England bowl them out before they reach a lead of 100? West Indies 281/7 in 94.1 overs, lead England (204) by 77 runs.

    ENG vs WI Live Score: FIFTY! 9th Test half-century for Shane Dowrich! He will be very pleased with this knock as it has come in a crucial time for his side and the last time when West Indies toured England, he had a tough tour. Shane has made amends in this one. Full delivery on middle, Dowrich flicks this towards deep mid-wicket to reach the milestone with a couple. He will look to continue on to score a century. Will he be able to convert it? West Indies 276/6 in 93 overs, lead England (204) by 72 runs.

Campbell continued West Indies’ good run with the reviews early on. He successfully overturned two LBW decisions that went against him. However, it was not a case of third time lucky for him as Anderson trapped him in front of leg stump four balls after Campbell had successfully reviewed the second decision.

Hope and Brathwaite however saw off Anderson, Mark Wood and later Ben Stokes before the umpires led the players back due to bad light. About 40 minutes later early stumps was declared for the second consecutive time in the Test.

West Indies captain Jason Holder was the star of the day as his six wickets earlier in the day helped the visitors bundle out England for 204 in the first two sessions of the day.
