We've reached what should have been the close of play before they went off for bad light - a fitting time to close this live text.
Thanks for joining myself and Jamie Lillywhite, whose report of an engrossing day one is building here.
Come back tomorrow to see whether Dawid Malan and Ben Stokes can rescue England or could West Indies even nip some quick wickets for an unlikely first-innings lead?
Catch you later. Cheers.
