Stokes also claimed the wicket of Windies skipper Jason Holder to return him the favour. Holder had previously dismissed Stokes in the first innings but fell prey himself this time around.
Earlier in the morning, Stokes trapped Kraigg Brathwaite, dismissing the opener for 65, and picked up the rest three in the final session which began with the dismissal of Windies skipper Jason Holder. Setting him up with the short ball angled in, Stokes lured Holder into playing his favourite hook shot. But the ball found Jofra Archer in the deep, cutting short his innings to only five runs off 14 deliveries.
Stokes then dismissed Joseph to take his 150th wickets and extended his tally by one more with the dismissal of Shane Dowrich.
West Indies were wrapped up for 318, with the visitors taking a 110-run lead in the first Test.
