Brathwaite and Blackwood frustrate England as West Indies hold firm

Brathwaite
and
Shamarh
Brooks
headed
out
in
the
first
session
with
the
Windies
on
71-1,
but
the
latter
fell
on
39
within
the
opening
30
minutes
of
the
working day
when
he
sliced
Jack
Leach’s
supply
to
Chris
Woakes.

Ben
Stokes
struck
shortly
following
coming
into
England’s
attack
midway
via
the
session,
dismissing
Nkrumah
Bonner
for
9
lbw,
as
the
holidaymakers
search
set
to
appreciate
a further
fine
day
right after
declaring
on
509
for
seven
on
Thursday.

Stokes
really should
have
had
Blackwood
lbw,
only
for
the
umpire
to
decline
their
appeals,
with
Joe
Root
picking
not
to
overview.

That
was
quickly
proved
a
miscalculation,
with
the
replay
displaying
the
ball
would
have
strike
halfway
up
leg
stump,
Blackwood
then
surviving
an
lbw
evaluation
for
what
could
have
been
Saqib
Mahmood’s
first
Test
wicket.

Braithwaite
and
Blackwood
manufactured
the
most
of
their
fortune,
irritating
England
during
the
second
session
to
achieve
tea
at
196-3,
on
79
and
50
respectively.

Windies
skipper
Brathwaite
nudged
Leach
for
two
to
convey
up
his
century
from
278
balls,
and
his
regulate
remained
as
he
permitted
Blackwood
to
stake
centre
phase.

Blackwood
picked
off
some
sloppy
Stokes
deliveries,
although
he
very
nearly
edged
Leach
to
Dan
Lawrence
in advance of
he
clipped
England’s
spinner
for
a
one
to
deliver
up
his
3rd
Check
ton.

His
stand
last but not least
arrived
to
an
stop
on
102,
when
Lawrence
trapped
him
lbw
but,
despite
a
late
review
in opposition to
Alzarri
Joseph,
West
Indies
held
on
to
access
stumps
on
288-4.


Good
Braithwaite
sales opportunities
by
illustration

Braithwaite
was
very
simply
sensational,
with
his
109
not
out
coming
from
337
deliveries
so
far,
and
he
will
be
there
once more
at
the
get started
of
working day
4.

He
now
has
10
Test
hundreds of years,
with
a few
of
those
having
arrive
against
England.


A
lengthy
day
for
England’s
bowlers

News
of
Mark
Wood’s
tour-ending
injuries
came
at
the
start
of
the
day
and
it
was
a
tough
time
for
England’s
bowlers.

Leach
has
previously
bowled
44
overs,
but
has
just
just one
wicket
to
show
for
it,
while
Stokes
has
an
inexpensive
1-34
to
clearly show
for
his
initiatives,
even though
it
took
a
cameo
from
Lawrence
(1-8)
to
make
the
late
breakthrough.
