Dom Bess strikes
Bess removes the West Indies skipper Jason Holder for 35. Bess got this to spin sharply from wide of off, darting in to rattle the stumps and send England into raptures!
While Sam Curran is normally a swing bowler, he has another aspect to his game – he targets the stumps. No seamer attacks the stumps more than Curran’s 14% hitting in this game
After 58 over WI are 164-7 (Roach 0, Holder 17) – TARGET 312
Sam Curran with a much-needed breakthrough. Brooks falls for 62 after being trapped LBW

Back with a bang!
Woakes 100th Test wicket
The hosts return from tea to claim another wicket. Chris Woakes 100th Test wicket as Shane Dowrich goes for 0. That was a very close LBW call against Dowrich as he bags a pair. Jason Holder comes to the crease.

WI cross 100 run mark
The visitors need another 212 runs from 52 overs. They came together when the score was 37, and with this partnership, they have offered a ray of hope for their team. 30 minutes to go to Tea. England need six wickets.
30 OVERS: West Indies 91/4, need 221 more to win
55 overs remaining for England to take the remaining six Windies wickets. Blackwood-Brooks partnership has completed 15 overs now, and added 54 runs so far for the fifth wicket.
Chris Woakes has been typically metronomic in this Test and he’s kept the pressure on – he’s only been attacked 14 per cent of the time, less than any other bowler.
If Ben Stokes takes a wicket in this innings, he’ll become the first Englishman to score 250+ runs and take more than a single wicket in a Test match.
