commentary

Right then! West Indies land a punch in Southampton and England return the favor here in Manchester. Who will win the bout? Well, that will be decided when both the teams face off for the final game at the same venue. That game will be played on 24th July 2020. It will start at 1100 local (1000 GMT). We will wait for your company for it. Till then, goodbye and take care!

BEN STOKES IS NAMED PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his brilliant performance. Ben starts by saying that he is fine on being asked about the niggle and tells that he did not want to take a risk. On his long bowling spell, Stokes says that he is ready to give everything for the team. Feels that once he bowled 5-6 overs, he felt that he should just keep bowling. Adds that in the first innings, they felt that there wasn't much movement off the surface. Adds that they used the short ball tactics well. On his batting performance in both the innings, tells that both the innings were played in different scenarios. Feels that the bowlers should get a lot of credit for their performance in the final session of Day 4. On him batting over 300 balls to get to his ton, Stokes laughs and says that he never thought he will face that many balls.

England skipper, Joe Root says that it was a brilliant week's cricket and says they have made progress in their batting and hopes to see more of 400+ scores. Tells they were in a position to finish it up and did so brilliantly. On Sibley, Root says that they want him to go out there and set the platform and tells that he is getting better with each game he plays. On Stokes, he says he does not surprise him as he leads the way in many ways and he keeps getting better and better. Tells he is a great example for everyone. Adds that Broad led the attack brilliantly and they know that he has a lot of cricket left in him. On the decisions to be made before the next Test, he says it is going to be a challenge as they have all their bowlers fit and tells it is going to be tricky.

West Indies skipper, Jason Holder, says that they are disappointed with their performance but credits England for their performance. Mentions Stokes' performance in the game made a lot of difference. Tells that there are a few points to ponder on for them in the next couple of days, like whether they should come forward or stay back to play or leave the balls. Feels that they batted quite well for a decent amount of time but credits the English bowlers for coming hard. Says that there's no regret regarding the decision at toss and feels that Sibley and Stokes should be given the credit the way they batted. Tells that they will look to see how all the guys pull up and decide about the team for the next game. Finishes by saying that they are here for win and they will give their all in the decider.

Stay with us for the presentation...

England bowlers were superb with the ball in this innings even though there was hardly any assistance for them. Broad got one in the first over and then they kept coming and coming and got wickets at regular intervals. Brooks and Blackwood resisted with respective half tons but once they were dismissed, things became tough for the visitors and England eventually bundled them out well before the allotted overs for Day 5. Apart from skipper Joe Root who bowled 10 deliveries, all the bowlers got wickets at crucial moments to help the hosts level the series.

West Indies batters did superbly in the first innings and were playing calmly with Brathwaite, Brooks and Chase getting to their half-centuries. However, once England took the second new ball, West Indies lost their way and somehow managed to avoid the follow-on with Chase helping them do that. Broad and Woakes finished with 3 apiece while Curran got 2 and Stokes and Bess took 1 wicket.

Earlier in the game, after winning the toss, Holder opted to bowl first. They started well with a couple of wickets early on but Sibley and Stokes combined for a marathon stand and took England towards a huge total. Both brought up their respective tons. They eventually declared on 469/9. Discussions were going around regarding the approach of Sibley and Stokes during that partnership knowing the fact that there were chances of rain on Day 3. For the Windies bowlers, it was a long toil that lasted for nearly 2 days with Chase taking a fifer. As per the forecast, the entire day's play on Day 3 was washed out.

What a terrific comeback from England to level the series! After the Day 3 washout and then the way West Indies batters batted in the first innings, it looked like there was just one result, i.e. a draw but Broad with a brilliant spell turned things around first and then earlier on in the morning session, Ben Stokes with his fluent knock gave the side a terrific opportunity to seal the game.

Dom Bess to Joseph, NOT OUT! Good review from Alzarri. Tossed up on middle and off, Joseph looks to defend but misses and the ball lobs off his pad to Ollie Pope at short leg. Bess and his teammates appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Joseph takes the review straightaway. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows there was no bat involved hence Alzarri was so confident. Ball Tracker then comes on and it shows that the ball is missing the stumps.

Another review! This time it is from Joseph. This time the umpire has raised his finger for a bat pad catch at short leg. No bat there so Joseph is safe. Hang on! The umpire wants to check the LBW as well. Joseph is safe there as well the ball is missing the stump one more time.

Dom Bess to Joseph, NOT OUT! England lose their review and more importantly Joseph survives. Flighted on off, Joseph leaves it alone and gets hit on the pads. The England players appeal and the umpire turns it down. Root signals the 'T'. Replay rolls in and it shows that the ball is going onto miss the stumps.

England have referred one upstairs. Joseph is the man in question. No shot offered. So doesn't matter where it is pitching. Is it hitting the stumps? Well, not really, missing the leg stump. England lose the review.

Sam Curran to Brooks, OUT! LBW! Super Sam does it again. This young lad has a golden arm and he has got the big wicket of Shamarh Brooks. The wicket England were desperately looking for and Curran has given Root that. Brilliant bowling from Sam, he comes around the wicket and pitches it around off. The change of angle works as the ball comes in off the deck. Brooks looks to defend off his back foot but misses and gets stuck on the crease. The ball hits him on his back pad. The English players put in a huge appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Brooks has a word with Holder but opts against review. Would not have mattered as replays later on show that it was hitting the wickets on umpire's call.

C Woakes to Dowrich, OUT! Just clipping the leg stump but that will do for England. Dowrich goes without opening his account once again. 100th Test wicket for Woakes. A good length ball around off, Dowrich after facing the chin music in the last over is hoping to work it on the leg side. He moves a little towards the off side and is hit on the pad. Woakes and others put in a loud appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Dowrich takes it upstairs after having a word with Brooks. Let's see if he is safe or no. Front foot is fine. No bat involved either. Where is it hitting? Clipping the leg stump so the on-field decision stays. Dowrich has to go and England just 4 wickets away from leveling the series.

Has Dowrich come too far across? The on-field umpire thinks so. Dowrich has decided to refer it. Let's see what the replays have to say.

The England players walk out to the middle for one final time in this Test match. Shamarh Brooks walks out with his new batting partner Shane Dowrich. Ben Stokes will finish his over.

... Day 5, Final Session ...

A very good session of Test cricket. It looked like West Indies would lose just one wicket but the hard work, effort and commitment of Stokes ensured that they break the 100-run stand right before Tea and head to the break with momentum on their side. It was a fascinating session of cricket as after getting rid of Roston Case early in the session, it looked like the hosts were cruising but Blackwood joined Brooks out in the middle and the pair put up a brilliant fight with both getting to their respective half centuries and adding a 100-run stand. It looked like the duo had done enough and would go to Tea unscathed but right at the stroke of Tea, Blackwood fell prey to Stokes' vicious bouncer and it is England who will feel like they have the momentum. West Indies are still in this with a fighting chance to draw. England, on the other hand, still have a lot to do as Brooks is out there and Dowrich and West Indies' best batter in the side, Holder still to come. So just over 42 overs to be bowled in the final session and 5 wickets in hand we are set for a thrilling finale. Do not miss out on this as it promises to be a great end to this Test. Join us for the final session at 1615 local (1515 GMT) to find out which way this Test goes.

Ben Stokes to Blackwood, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Stokes is the man again. What a player! He just keeps coming at you. On the first ball of the over, he ran all the way down to long off to save a boundary and now once again bowls an effort ball. Bangs it short around the body. Blackwood tries to somehow fend it off but ends up getting it off his gloves. The ball balloons behind. Buttler charges ahead, covers a lot of ground and takes the catch with a dive forward. A fine innings from Blackwood comes to an end. And with that, TEA ON DAY 5.

Ben Stokes to Blackwood, FOUR RUNNING RUNS! Nice shot but what an effort from Stokes. Runs in to bowl and delivers it around off, Blackwood punches it through mid off. There is no one manning that position so Stokes goes chasing after it. He gets near the fence and puts in a dive and pulls the ball back in. The umpires check if it is a clean stop. Well, it is a clean stop but the batters have taken four running runs. Full marks for the effort.

Dom Bess to Brooks, SIX! Gets to his half ton with a biggie! Woakes was there at long on and for a moment, his heart would have been in his mouth. Just about clears him. It is a loopy ball around off, Brooks powers it over the long on region for a biggie. Fifty in the first innings, fifty again but he needs to get to the three-figure score in this one to help West Indies secure a draw.

C Woakes to Brooks, A good length ball outside off to begin the session. Brooks shoulders arms.

Time for the second and most important session of the Test match. A couple of wickets quickly and we might see an early finish. The English players have made their way out to the middle. Roston Chase and Shamarh Brooks stride out too. A task in hand for both the batters. 74 overs left in the day, weather permitting. Chris Woakes with the ball. Here we go...

... Day 5, Session 2 ...

West Indies have a lot to think about as everything that could possibly go wrong has went wrong in the first session of the final day. They leaked runs to begin the day. Needing 312 to win but more importantly surviving 85 overs, the tourists would have wanted their openers to at least see off the session but Campbell's poor day continued as after dropping a sitter of Stokes earlier in the day, he was dismissed in the very first over. The tourists have looked lackluster with the willow and are in a troublesome position. They would look to improve and have a much better second session. Can the tourists put on a fight or will England have a fruitful second session as well? Join us at 1340 Local (1240 GMT) to find out.

A brilliant morning session for England first hour or less with the bat and the remaining with the ball. The day started off with some aggressive batting by Stokes sprinkled with some luck as he was dropped by John Campbell. An aggressive innings from Stokes gave the hosts a lead in excess of 300 and after declaring with the lead of 311, the hosts would have looked for a couple of wickets from their new ball bowlers. That is what they got, the returning Broad proved why he shouldn't be dropped as he picked two and his new ball partner Woakes getting one. The hosts are clearly on top of this game.

Another on-field decision referred upstairs as England think they have another wicket. Chase is the man in question. Let's see what the replays have to show. No problems with the front foot. However,the Ball Tracker shows that it would miss the leg stump.

S Broad to Chase, NOT OUT! Missing the leg stump by some distance. A waste of a review from them. Good length ball on middle, comes back in once again. Chase tries to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. A loud appeal from Broad and others but not out says the umpire. Root has a word with his bowler and opts for the review. Time for the replays. Front foot is fine. Is it hitting the stumps? Ball Tracker says no, missing the leg pole. So, Chase stays to return for the second session as it is LUNCH ON DAY 5!

Broad to S Hope, OUT! Knocked him over with a beauty! Another one bites the dust and England are on fire. Brilliant from Broad. A brilliant ball again.

Woakes to Brathwaite, OUT! LBW! That is plumb and Brathwaite is not taking the DRS. He just walks as he knows where he was standing.

Brathwaite has a word with Hope but keeps walking. The replays later show that it would've been umpire's call on hitting the wickets.

S Broad to Campbell, OUT! Caught Behind! A last second review but it is a successful one. A full ball outside off, Campbell once again looks to drive it through the covers but fails to connect. There is a loud appeal but nothing from Buttler from behind the wickets. Root thinks and thinks and calls for the review at the last moment. And, the replays show that there is a clear spike. So, England have drawn first blood in the very first over.

Review time! England think they have a wicket caught behind. A very late review from them. Is there a nick? Oh, yes, there is!
