Bat for 8 more overs tomorrow. Another 40 runs or so. Stick em back in. England can win this but can’t waste time. Better to lose in this circumstance than play safe and draw.
? We're already one down.......
Yep in a 3 test series and the Windies hold the trophy - so a drawn series means they retain it. Only way we win it back is by winning this test and the next. We might as well go for it - if we lose, we lose. No point in playing safe.

Think I'd have snapped your hand off for this when they avoided the follow on yesterday. Still a long way to go but it doesn't look fun to bat on!

My biggest worry is weather/light - one of the Windies pairs are going to have to play really, really well here to survive the overs left. Not impossible that a couple dig in - but if they do fair play to them. If we get the overs in - I'd be reasonably confident.

Amazed they didn't review that. Just sounded and looked out to me in real time - I guess the ultra edge showing it hitting the arm after the glove is what put them off - thinking it just hit arm only.

Yeah I thought it was out but must thought it was arm only

Brooks and Blackwood have dug in well. Shame this ball just isn't swinging like the ball has done for the past two days. But our lack of a test level spinner is being shown up here. Bess has the skills but just isn't consistent enough YET....

Still break this pair before tea - and its on again. But feel that it'll be hard to rip through middle overs with a soft ball and no real chance of reverse.

Obviously want us to just win but them say 8 down with 5 overs of the new ball could be a grandstand finish

Chuffed for Dom Bess. Still v much a work in progress and struggling for length and Holder had decided to get after him. Takes stones and skill to keep putting it up there and got what he deserved.

Indeed. He’s got the skills just not the consistency. Good sign that he keeps putting it in the right places even when getting knocked around.

Just need big Shannon now.....

It’s a fabulous series, especially so in the circumstances, and two very well matched sides.

Can’t ask for too much more. Very tricky selection dillemas for both sides now, I’d not like to pick England’s attack for the decider....crikey...

I'd rather get to pick ours than theirs!

But agreed. Excellent so far and nicely poised. Just hope the weather doesn't ruin it.
