      53-2...got to battle or it could collapse. Pitch still plenty of pace. Cook tweeted "Bairstow gets bowled to often"...Cook is out there as well..

      Big shout for LBW...but nearly everything is flying over the top.

      Fatkopite10.....said it could be over tonight....could be right...59-4.....ball is coming off the deck and even looks to be speeding up..

      Stokes dropped...in the slips...wasn't that difficult...Butler & Stokes might go on the attack, can't defend as the ball is jumping up off the pitch..

      Truly awful batting by england. Bairstow batting like a millionaire. Root is shot, would get rid if we had a replacement. Buttler isn't test class.

      But the Windies are on fire..bit of venom in this pitch...getting up to waist height just short of a length...England need to counter..get some sort of foothold..50 behind..

      You called it right. Yes very poor.Not a good omen for the summer v Australia. Just didn't defend well enough to build an innings. The Windies are back after a few years reorganising.Hope England show a bit more fight for the last test and the one dayers in the Windies.

      To be honest, it sounds harsh but apart from gabriel and roach this still a very average windiescteam

      Early days for this Windies team. Bowling is strong, batting did ok. Good to go 2 up. They can build on this and improve. England have to open better, middle order, lower order bat better, bowl better, catch better...the whole 9 yards.

      Back to footie..

      231-4   Bit hard going but the middle order stuck around for a change. Better pitch, bit of life in it but more predictable bounce. Slow outfield as well. Root out again cheaply. Stokes and Butler had to dig in. Good thing is Windies attack 2nd day in the field, any loose bowling and those two could accelerate toward 300.

      Yeah, the bizarre stokes no ball made me chuckle, he was back in the dressing room

      Mark Wood giving England something they sorely missed in the first two Tests (and in the Ashes last winter as well).

      Good day, delighted for Mark Wood after all his injury problems. A bit of pace certainly shook up the windies. Hope the batsmen can push home the advantage

      England now have 142 lead going into day 3. Anything approaching 300 would probably be to much for the Windies 2nd innings.

      So looks like 2-1. Still a lost series.

      Great controlled calculating century by Root. Jason Roy more explosive. England No1 at this form of the game so it could even be a 5-0. Alex Hales unlucky not a get in. Tighter line needed by the bowlers but 375-380 looked a par score on that pitch.

      England are better when chasing down a score. Think Bairstow will make a big hundred. Windies bowling looks a bit tame without Roach and Gabriel.
