Day three scoreboard
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.
