England vs West Indies 3rd Test LIVE: Shannon Gabriel injured, walks off pitch

Talismanic West Indies pacer Shannon Gabriel had to walk back after what looked like a muscle pull during the ongoing England vs West Indies 3rd Test Day1 in Manchester.

It was bad news for the visitors as Gabriel twice ran in to try and bowl his third ball but on each occasion pulls out. After the second time, he throws the ball away and made his way off the field.

Gabriel has had troubles with his fitness in the past, they would hope it’s nothing serious. Meanwhile, Roach had to complete the over.

Gabriel who was into only his fourth over of the day, stopped mid-way in his run up and decided to walk off. West Indies are playing only three seamers in this Test as Joseph has been replaced by off-spinner Cornwall.

West Indies opted to go with 140kg wildcard Rahkeem Cornwall for the final and deciding Test in Manchester as skipper Jason Holder has earlier lauded Rahkeem Cornwall saying he is a better spinner than anyone in the England camp.

Cornwall took a 10-wicket match haul in just his second Test against Afghanistan last November, but the 6ft 6in off-spinner so far has been overlooked in the #raisethebat series.
