      England 114-4 at tea, absolutely agonising to watch such a poor batting line up struggle

      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.

      I wouldn't be not really. One day cricket nowadays is heavily favoured to the batsmen
      Yesterday's track looked a 380-400 bat first pitch with the boundaries in

      Don't forget had Roy took Gayle on 9 which he should have we would have more than likely been chasing 300-330

      I think Archer will be parashooted into the attack for the world cup too, he's got serious wheels

      Yes I think we have a good varied attack.Pace, swing, left arm over the wicket, good spin options as well. Batsmen who bowl etc. England have such an explosive batting line up 350+ target doesn't phase them.

      Difficult for the bowlers to get the line right when batters go after them. Windies may be over reliant on Gayle getting a score whereas England have several match winners. Be surprised if England lose more than one against the Windies.

      Meh, archer looked okay in 20 over stuff but don't quite get the hype

      England win the toss and put Windies in.Gayle opening. If he goes early, and he will at some stage in this series, the Windies will either sink or swim. Today's pitch, at the same ground looks like another 350+ par.

      England hot favourites and everybody will be trying to hold their spot for the forthcoming ODI World Cup which starts in May this year. As well as that, do well in the shorter version and IPL and other lucrative contracts are up for grabs. So the competition for places is fierce.

      Gayle when he connects lashes it out of the ground. Pitch looks good. 65/1 off 13 over. If Gayle stay in could make the 300 mark but they need to up the run rate

      144-3 off 30 overs. Windies will have to bat very well in these last 20 overs. 275-280+ looks on. Might not be enough.

      England set 290 to win. Great knock by Hetmyer...104. One to watch, great future. Good all round bowling from England. Few no ball and free hits given away.

      290 looks a bit short, bout 25-30 runs or so.

      Announcing details of the new 100 ball competition. Not fussy on this. 20/20 stretches the essence of the game. This new 100 is a contrived formation. Cricket is lost a bit is this game...loosely based on the game of cricket, more about feeding into the revenue opportunities.

      England off to a bad start, 2 wickets lost.Root and Morgan trying to rebuild...36-2.......Hetmyer's fell over..

      Ball is just holding up on the pitch, not a pudding pitch but not quite coming on to the bat..still England bat deep.

      Root out for 36...60-3..
