    Star of the match – Shannon Gabriel!

    ENG vs WI Live Cricket Updates: England, on the other hand, would not be happy with their performance. Jofra Archer bowled brilliantly throughout and after he gave momentum to the home side in the first session, the other bowlers faltered in the others as West Indies were scoring runs with ease. Anderson was good as well but failed to pick up a wicket. Stokes bowled exceptionally towards the end but it was a little too late. They need to pull their socks up for the second Test if they want to make a comeback. They have a lot of thinking to do with the make-up of the side. The biggest one being who will go out when Joe Root comes back?

    1st Test Live Cricket Updates: What a way to resume international cricket! An interesting match was expected and that is what we got after a long hiatus. Brilliant from the West Indies as they have done it. They have taken a 1-0 lead in this 3-match series with a brilliant all-round performance. They were terrific with the ball and were good with the bat as well. Talking about this innings, they were down and out chasing 200 as they lost 3 wickets in no time but Blackwood stood tall and along with Chase and Dowrich, has helped his side cross the target with ease. Jermaine scored runs at a brisk pace and was brilliant before he was dismissed for 95. The credit has to go to Chase and Dowrich as well for sticking around and not throwing their wickets away.

    Blackwood misses a well-deserved ton!

  • 10:26 PM IST

    ENG vs WI Live Cricket Updates: OUT! Ben Stokes removes Jermaine Blackwood for 95. Stokes gets another one and is the English miracle still possible? Well there is a glimmer of hope for that t happen now. End of fantastic innings from Blackwood. He will be gutted not to see off the game and also miss out on a well-deserved century. Stokes bowls a fuller delivery outside off, Jermaine looks to go over mid-off. He does not get the desired elevation and ends up hitting it to the right of mid-off. Anderson there swiftly moves on that side and takes a simple catch. West Indies 318 and 189/6, need 11 runs to win vs England (204 and 313).

    1st Test Live Cricket Score: OUT! Ben Stokes removes Shane Dowrich for 20. This time there is no doubt about the No Ball and Dowrich’s uncomfortable innings comes to an end. He got lucky in the previous ball but not this time. Stokes is glad and so is the rest of the England team. They still have a chance to win this game. Length ball on off, moving away, Dowrich looks to defend but it takes the outside edge and goes to the right of the keeper. Buttler dives to that side and manages to take the catch. Can England make a match of this somehow? WI 318 and 170/5, need 30 runs to win vs ENG (204 and 313)

    ENG vs WI Live Cricket Updates: Nice shot! 150 up for West Indies. Full delivery on off, Blackwood drives it through covers for a boundary. West Indies need 47 runs to win this match. Earlier England have taken a review for LBW! Jermaine Blackwood is the man in question. It looks close. There is no bat but the Ball Tracker shows that it is missing the leg stump. Review lost. NOT OUT! It is missing the leg stump! Good length ball on the pads, Blackwood looks to heave it away but gets hit on the pads. England put in a huge appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Stokes thinks of a review and takes it. The Ultra Edge shows no bat and the Ball Tracker shows that it is missing the leg stump. A review lost by England.
