R Chase to Curran, OUT! There it is! WINDIES WIN BY 381 RUNS AND LEAD THE SERIES 1-0! What a win, what a performance! They will be celebrating tonight. Spectacular effort from Jason Holder and his men. Seeing Curran come down the track, Chase bowls it flat and down the leg side, the batsman misses and Hope behind the stumps finishes the formalities.

J Campbell to Anderson, NOT OUT! Good review. Tossed up outside off, Anderson brings out the reverse sweep. The ball goes top Holder at second slip. He grabs it and appeals. The Windies player appeal but the umpire turns it down. The go upstairs for the review. To the naked eye it looked like it hit his bat and bumped before going to Holder at second slip. Replays show there was no bat or glove involved. It hit Anderson on the boot. Hawk Eye shows that he survives because the impact was outside by just a feather. Winides retain their review.

Review! The Windies have taken a review for caught behind. Is it a bump ball?

R Chase to Rashid, OUT! Bye bye, Adil. Tossed up on middle and off, Rashid gets on one knee and tries to slog it over the fielder at deep mid-wicket. Kraigg Brathwaite there judges the skier well. He grabs it and then realizes he is not in balance and will go over the rope, so he throws it in the air, gets back in position and takes the catch. Windies are just 1 wicket away from victory.

GONE? Rashid holes out but the umpires go upstairs to see if the catch is clean. The soft signal is out.

Shannon Gabriel walks out of the ground. Don't think we will see him again today.

R Chase to Ben Foakes, OUT! Roston Chase, you beauty! He gets his 6th of the innings. Flighted on middle, Foakes gets on his front foot and goes for the flick. He is not in balance and the ball goes to short leg. Hetmyer there does extremely well to hold on to that one. It is one of the most difficult field positions to be at and the young man is doing a great job.

R Chase to Buttler, OUT! What a catch! Blinder! Windies have just sprung to life post Lunch and victory is not far away from them. Also, a 5-wicket haul for Roston Chase! Floats this on off, Buttler looks to flick it away but gets it off the bottom half of the bat. John Campbell at short mid-wicket dives full length to his left and takes a stunner. Jos cannot believe it and Chase picks up the ball and acknowledges the crowd. How long more before we get a result?

R Chase to Foakes, On leg, turned to square leg.

We are back for the final session of the game and probably this Test match too. Jos Buttler comes out, with his new partner Ben Foakes. Roston Chase to finish his remaining over. Here we go...

... Day 4, Session 3 ...

What a session for the Windies. They are edging closer to an emphatic win. 4 wickets in this session - Bairstow, Root, Stokes, Ali all gone. All the bowlers bowled well in this session and kept it tight without giving away any free runs. Roston Chase was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 3 of the 4. England didn't manage to keep their heads above their shoulders and succumbed under the relentless pressure thrown by the Windies bowlers. As a result, they are staring down the barrel and this match could be over today itself. Let's see how it goes.

70.5
0
R Chase to M Ali, OUT! Moeen is a goner. Another duck for Ali. Gets a pair in this match. Short on off, the southpaw tries to cut it but gets an outside edge and the ball goes to Jason Holder at second slip. He holds on to it and Windies get another wicket before the break just as they did before the Lunch break. 4 more required to wrap up this dominant performance. Will it go to Day 5?

Chase to Stokes, OUT! No bat involved and Stokes has to walk back. Tossed up on off, the ball spins in after pitching. Ben Stokes tries to defend it off his front foot but misreads the spins. It hits him low on the pads. The players appeal and the umpire raises the dreaded finger. Stokes thinks for a bit and goes for the review. The replays show there was no bat involved at it was plumb. Hawk Eye shows all three reds and England lose their review along with half the side. They still need 415 runs more.

Review! This looks close. Ben Stokes is given out lbw and he's taken the DRS. Maybe some bat involved. Only thing that can save him. Over to the third umpire now...

R Chase to Joe Root, OUT! Just what the doctor ordered for Windies. Massive wicket here. Shorter around off, Root tries to cut it but it goes past his outside edge and straight to first slip. Darren Bravo there takes a sharp catch. Root cannot make most of the life he got and he is gutted with himself. He looks up in the sky dejected and walks back. The Windies players are enjoying it and Jason Holder is a happy man. Shannon Gabriel will be the happier man though as his wicket off a no ball has not costed them much. Windies need just 6 wickets more to wrap this up.

R Chase to Stokes, NOT OUT! It hits the bat first. Tossed up on middle, Ben tries to defend it off his front foot. The ball takes the inside edge and hits him on his pads. The Windies players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Stokes straightaway goes for the review and replays confirm it was bat first. England living on thin ice here. One more wicket and it would have been disastrous for the visitors. Need these two to play for a long time.

Review! Ben Stokes is caught leg before and adjudged out. He has quickly signalled the 'T' and taken it upstairs. It is bat first? Because that's the only thing that can save him.

R Chase to Bairstow, Not out! Bairstow lives to fight another day. No lbw or caught behind. Chase tosses it up outside off and it spins in, Jonny tries to flick it away but misses and it goes into the hands of the keeper behind. Windies appeal, get nothing, but then they take the DRS immediately. Now, under such circumstances, it will be checked for both lbw and the catch. First, replays show there's no bat involved, so we move to Ball Tracking. In that, the impact is outside off. Windies lose the review and Jonny Bairstow survives.

Review time. It's for a caught behind decision against Jonny Bairstow. Windies seem confident.

S Gabriel to Root, Not out! Root survives! Old habits do die hard, don't they? Gabriel bowls a no ball on a wicket delivery. He bangs it in short, a sharp and accurate bouncer which takes the England Test skipper completely by surprise. It goes off his gloves and behind to Holder at second slip. Everyone celebrates, but those smiling faces are put on hold as it's taken upstairs to check for the front foot no ball. And much to the hosts' dismay, their worst fears come true. A big no ball too from Gabriel.

Hold up! Could it be? Could it really be? Root has been caught behind and given out. But, the umpire has gone upstairs to check if Gabriel overstepped or not. Let's see what happens.

... Day 4, Session 2 ... The players are out in the middle. Jonny Bairstow is joined by his skipper Joe Root. Roston Chase will finish his pending over.

You'd have argued the session belonged to England, but that wicket of Burns right at the end would have made the Windies feel they've got the better of this morning. 23.5 overs, 78 runs and 2 wickets is the story of this session. It's been an eventful two hours for sure. Joseph got Jennings early and broke the opening stand of 85 runs. And post that, Burns continued with Bairstow to continue the work. The opener played a few risky shots, survived a few close calls but got to his fifty. Would have had a hundred too had it not been for that inspiring bowling change from skipper Holder. With about 6 minutes to go, he brought on Chase who knocked Burns' off stump over on his fifth ball. The runs don't really matter at this stage, but England still need 494 runs to win. Conversely, the hosts need 8 wickets for a victory. The second session will be a fun one. Join us on the other side of the break for all the action.

R Chase to Burns, OUT! That's a massive wicket for Windies. Roston Chase has got the job done for his skipper. Big, big bonus. Chase switches the angle and comes from around the wicket, bowls it full and quicker through the air on off. It doesn't spin as Burns comes forward to play for the same. Goes right through the gate and takes the off stump. A wicket at the stroke of the break. LUNCH ON DAY 4!

We are all set for the action to begin. The Windies players make their way out to the middle. The English openers, Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings will resume their innings. Shannon Gabriel will start the proceedings. Here we go...

Welcome, everyone, to what could possibly be, barring an English miracle, the final day of this Test. Day 3 saw the conditions differ from the first two days and with that, Windies taking a hold of this match with skipper Jason Holder shining with his maiden double ton, ably supported by Shane Dowrich with a gritty century of his own. They set a massive target, well in excess of 600 for the visitors to chase, if that's even possible. Now, will the pitch play out differently or will we see the batters making merry once again? Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings saw the remainder of the third day without any trouble. However it goes, we'll surely have some fun.

... Day 4, Session 1...

We saw 18 wickets fall on Day 3 but not even one fell today. Signs of the wicket getting better? England will surely hope so. Windies on the other hand, need not panic they need to be disciplined and continue bowling the right lines. Will the Windies wrap it up on Day 4 or will we have a Day 5. Join us to find out on the 26th of January at 1000 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

In reply, the England openers have started off really well. They have looked at relative ease and provided the perfect start for the visitors. They still have a long, long way to go and England would hope they can continue in the same manner.

England head into Day 4 with all their wickets intact. That would have surely been their first aim when they started their 4th innings and they have achieved their first goal. However, it is still the hosts who are in firm control of this game after their skipper and Dowrich added a massive 295-run unbeaten stand. The former got to his first double hundred whereas the latter scored a ton. They batted around 75 overs today and set England a massive target of 628.
