Paul strikes on first ball of se­ries

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - SCITECH -

St Lu­cia: Keemo Paul struck with his first de­liv­ery of the se­ries as Eng­land reached lunch at 46 for one af­ter be­ing put in to bat by stand-in West Indies cap­tain Kraigg Brath­waite on the first morn­ing of the third and fi­nal Test at the Dar­ren Sammy Sta­dium in St Lu­cia on Satur­day.

Drafted into the fi­nal eleven as re­place­ment for reg­u­lar skip­per Ja­son Holder, Paul ended Keaton Jen­nings’ tor­tu­ous oc­cu­pa­tion of the crease when the open­ing bats­man fell for the third time in three in­nings in the se­ries to catches in the slip cor­don.

Eng­land re­sumed in the af­ter­noon with Rory Burns (27 not out) hav­ing been joined in the mid­dle by Joe Denly, who made his de­but in the sec­ond Test as Burns’ open­ing part­ner.

Dropped ear­lier by Ros­ton Chase at third slip off Ke­mar Roach, the lead­ing wick­et­taker in the se­ries with 13 vic­tims, Jen­nings failed to make the most of the re­prieve as the left-han­der drove loosely at the seam bowl­ing all­rounder’s open­ing de­liv­ery mid­way through the ses­sion to de­part for eight —AFP Brief scores: Eng­land 46/1 (R Burns 27 not out; K. Paul 1/7) v West Indies
