Day three score­board

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport Third Test -

ade ago. He missed a stump­ing on Burns when his feet slipped on the turf but, apart from that, put in the clean­est keep­ing shift of the match.

Rah­keem Corn­wall went wick­et­less for 164 runs in the match, dropped a dolly at slip and failed to re­view when he had Burns lbw on 75. Eng­land played him well, but sec­ond spin­ner Ros­ton Chase posed more prob­lems.

Eng­land had a poor first 55 min­utes in the morn­ing be­fore Broad’s in­tro­duc­tion. They were flat and list­less at a time when they were push­ing to bowl West Indies out and give them­selves the op­tion of the fol­low on. There were mis­fields, Chris Woakes had a dis­missal of Holder scrubbed off for a no-ball and it was a mis­take not to open with Broad ahead of Woakes.

In the gloom on Satur­day even­ing, Archer had Dowrich in all sorts of trou­ble with the short ball. But this time he bowled too many that could be ducked or left rather than those into the ribs that have caused Dowrich many prob­lems.

Holder ca­joled Dowrich, help­ing him through the bat­tle with Archer and the pair added 78 be­fore Root waved to Broad to warm up and the morn­ing turned.

Three balls into his spell, Broad found seam move­ment and Holder was lbw. Corn­wall played a club­bie’s heave across the line and Roach was caught low down at slip for his fifth wicket.

Dowrich top-edged to Woakes at mid-on and Broad led Eng­land off with a burst of four for 11. The de­bate over An­der­son and Broad stand­ing in the way of progress is valid, but they have com­bined to take ten for 69 in this match with power to add, while Archer and Woakes have man­aged two for 129.

They are mak­ing the un­der­stud­ies wait a while longer yet.
