Over 2.2JM Anderson bowls short of length delivery to K Brathwaite, gets an outside edge which is caught by the Keeper.He is Caught

Over 16.6 JM Anderson bowls a good length delivery to Kyle Hope, out Caught by Stokes!!  Back of a length delivery that coming in and Hope was surprised by the bounce as well. The batsman is a bit late to play the stroke and the ball flies to gully off the shoulder of the bat. Stokes makes no mistake.

Over 17.5 SCJ Broad bowls a good length delivery to Kieran Powell, out K Powell Run Out!! Powell offers a a straight bat to push it towards mid-on and takes off for a non-existent single. Anderson, at mid-on, had to only move a couple of yards to his right. Does so and finds the bulls-eye at the bowler's end.

Over 20.5 JM Anderson bowls a good length delivery to Roston Chase, out Bowled!! Anderson shortens his length a tad and the ball nips in sharply. All Chase manages to do is hop and get an inside edge. The pink ball cannons onto the stumps.

Over 28.5 Toby Roland-Jones bowls a good length delivery to Shai Hope, out Bowled!! Shai Hope was defending well, this time he goes for an expansive drive to a full delivery outside off, wasn't a half-volley, so is trying to drive on the rise, a thick inside edge clatters onto the stumps.

Over 30.6 Toby Roland-Jones bowls a good length delivery to Shane Dowrich, out Lbw!! Dowrich played completely down the wrong line, the bat face was closed and he was looking to work a full delivery on off to mid-wicket. Erasmus instantly raised the finger 

Over 38.3 Moeen Ali bowls a tossed up delivery to JO Holder, out Caught by Bairstow!! There's a caught behind appeal by Bairstow, who reviews. Third umpire called for. A spike is found and Holder has to go. The West Indian captain has to go

Over 39.5 SCJ Broad bowls a good length delivery to KAJ Roach, out Bowled!! A good delivery, on a fullish length, nips back in sharply and moves past the inside edge on the drive and takes out the stump.

Over 45.5 SCJ Broad bowls a good length delivery to Alzarri Joseph,  out Lbw!! The fuller length ball and Alzarri Joseph plays all across the line of the ball to miss it. Broad kept running towards the batsman as if he was sure of the decision.

Over 46.6 JM Anderson bowls a good length delivery to Jermaine Blackwood, out Miguel Cummins Run Out!!  Blackwood dinked it away, charged down for a single and Miguel Cummins never looked like making it as he was slow off the blocks.
