  1. Goodbye

    Time to bid you farewell after an extraordinary day. It looks very much as though this match, and this Test series, will be decided tomorrow, so you have no excuse for not joining us tomorrow at 14:30 BST. See you tomorrow.

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "England don't have enough runs. If someone gets a big 40 or 50 for West Indies when they are chasing, someone like Blackwood for example, and gets away with a few hits then the pressure is on the bowlers. If England get out of jail here, it will be a miracle. I hope they do."

  4. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "Trott played across the line and was plumb LBW. The nice thing was the Barmy Army gave him a standing ovation. They know he has to play a lot of county cricket and score big to play again.

    "The ovation was not out of sympathy but because he's played 49 Test matches before this series and has had a wonderful career and played well for England. It was a kind of salute and affectionate, but you can't stay in the team for ever."

  5. Review of the day

    Time to draw breath after that absorbing, relentless day. England began poorly, losing their last three wickets cheaply, but their bowlers then tore through the West Indies to earn a significant first-innings lead, with James Anderson once again the destroyer-in-chief.

    At that point England looked in complete control, but what followed was a scarcely believable collapse that threatens to cost them a series win. West Indies were inspired as they reduced the England top order to rubble to leave this match right in the balance.

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "England had West Indies on the rack and I thought we'd have a lead of 120 but we lost the plot. Moeen Ali - if he's the best in England, Wales, GB, UK or anywhere, please write in quickly to the chairman of selectors if you're a spinner because that was a load of rubbish.

    "And Joe Root was even worse. He's a part-time bowler but my daughter's hockey team could have walloped his long hops for six. They nearly killed short leg and Gary Ballance finally did get hit. We lost the plot - Cook should have taken them off early."

    Kevin Brenda: I hope when I wake up, this innings would have been a bad dream.

    Tony: 18 wickets in a day is what I call exciting cricket. Don't understand the fascination with sixes. Bowling brings the tension.

  9. Close of play

    Eng 39-5

    Ben Stokes is the new batsman, and whaddaya know, West Indies immediately bring his old nemesis Marlon Samuels into the attack. He survives, and England end the day 105 runs ahead, with five wickets down. What a crazy, incredible day of Test cricket!

  10. WICKET

    Moeen b Permaul 8 (Eng 39-5)

    This is magnificent from West Indies! They are trampling all over England in this second innings. Moeen is the latest to fall, rather carelessly trying to cut one from Permaul and chopping it on to his stumps. England are on the rack, this series is in the balance.

  12. Eng 35-4 (Ballance 12, Moeen 4)

    Ten minutes to go for England. Can they survive without losing another wicket? Ballance dabs Holder to gully for two.

  13. Eng 33-4 (lead by 101)

    Permaul's busy, frenetic action really is one of the most extraordinary things I've ever seen on a cricket field. The sort of thing that you'd struggle to replicate without dislocating a shoulder, putting your hand through the skylight and punching the cat. He's bowling with a lot more control than he managed in the first innings though, and he keeps England to a single from his latest over.

  14. Vote result

    Greatest West Indies fast bowler?

    The results of our vote are in and the winner is...

    The one and only Malcolm Marshall, pictured hitting Mike Gatting in the face, with 32.5% of the vote.

    He pips Michael Holding (29.2) and Curtly Ambrose (25) to top the poll.

    Marshall hits Gatting
  15. Eng 32-4

    The bats of Gary Ballance and Moeen Ali bear all the hallmarks of many hours spent testing their technique against the bowling machine, each one bearing more red splat-marks than a reveller at that Spanish tomato-throwing festival. Moeen's away with four to third man.

  16. Eng 28-4

    Well well, four batsmen back in the hutch and none of them into double figures. Make no mistake, England are wobbling. Moeen Ali is the new batsman, he survives the rest of the over from Holder before Ballance blocks out a maiden from Permaul.

    "What a bit of bowling, just leaving him, Root went for the drive and edged and a good catch. West Indies celebrating feverishly, they've got the momentum. One English batsman has to take this game by the scruff of the neck. This is a superb Test match."

  19. WICKET

    Root c Bravo b Holder 1 (Eng 28-4)

    That's a big wicket! Joe Root, the man in form, the young gun who has triggered many an England recovery in this series, is gone. Holder pushes one a touch wider, Root drives loosely, and Darren Bravo snaffles it in the cordon.

    Jason Holder
  20. Eng 28-3

    A good start from Permaul, who gets one to slide on with the arm and defeat Ballance, and then has a a huge appeal turned down when Ballance pads one away.

  21. Not out

    No, that's a real waste of a review, a huge gap between bat and ball. Ballance survives.

  22. Umpire review

    Veerasammy Permaul is introduced, and immediately West Indies appeal to have Gary Ballance caught at short leg...

  23. Eng 26-3

    Denesh Ramdin shuffles his pack and introduces the rangy Jason Holder in place of Jerome Taylor. He finds the edge when Ballance pokes forward nervously, but a combination of soft hands and a dying pitch save the England batsman from perishing to a slip catch.

  25. Eng 25-3 (lead by 93)

    Slow going for England. A leg bye keeps the scoreboard moving.

  26. Eng 24-3 (Taylor 6-1-16-2)

    An immediate nerve-settler after drinks for Gary Ballance, overpitched from Jerome Taylor and Ballance punches it back down the ground for four. Joe Root is off the mark with a single through square leg.

    Eng 18-3 (Ballance 1, Root 0)

    Gabriel, who has found a really good length, sends down a second straight maiden, helped by a spectacular stop from Jermaine Blackwood at short leg. 17 consecutive dot balls from Gabriel now, pressure building. Time for drinks.

    Frank Close: Trott highest scorer so far. Just a thought.

  30. Eng 18-3 (lead by 86)

    Jerome Taylor inspired West Indies to demolish England for 51 in Jamaica in 2009, can he do the same again here? They'll need to get rid of Joe Root double-quick. Root blocks out the remaining three balls of the over.

    Sukhman: It looks like the Windies and England are having a 'who can collapse the quickest' competition.

    Aaron Trowse: What is happening? That streaker describes this current England innings in one word. Pants.

  32. WICKET

    Bell lbw b Taylor 0 (Eng 18-3)

    No doubt about it. Hitting middle halfway up, not the first rotten review we've seen in this match. Bell goes for a pair, West Indies all over England like ants swarming on a discarded picnic...

    Jerome Taylor
  33. Umpire review

    Jerome Taylor is on fire here! He's pinned Ian Bell lbw, Bell's reviewed but surely this is dead...

    Taylor traps Bell
  34. Eng 17-2

    Patrick Jones: Listening to the cricket while on a train. Go through a tunnel and we lose two wickets!!!

  37. Eng 17-2 (Ballance 0, Bell 0)

    Shouts of exasperation in the Windies slip cordon as Jerome Taylor narrowly beats the tentative forward push of Gary Ballance, then gets him to edge one that just dies before the fielders. This pitch is looking like a minefield at the moment. England pick up four byes when Taylor spears one down the leg side.

  38. WICKET

    Cook c Brathwaite b Gabriel 4 (Eng 13-2)

    Big breakthrough for West Indies, they're dragging themselves back into this match. Gabriel sends down a length ball outside off, it just straightens, inducing a hesitant poke from Alastair Cook, and Kraigg Brathwaite swallows it at second slip. England in a spot of bother.

    "That ball is pitching outside off-stump and he's trying to work it through mid-wicket. Here is a guy who has played really well for England. The crowd know the game, they've seen the way he's played but they know there is something missing."

  41. WICKET

    Trott lbw b Taylor 9 (Eng 11-1)

    There is to be no miracle return to form for Jonathan Trott. Full and straight from Taylor, pinning the shuffling Trott in front of the timbers. Trott, desperate, walks down the crease to consult with Alastair Cook, and the captain must have a heavy heart as he has to send his old comrade on his way. Surely that is the end of a distinguished England career.

    Jerome Taylor
  42. Eng 9-0

    Gabriel was, in my opinion, the standout quick for West Indies in the first innings, and he is on the money straight away here, firing down a probing maiden.

  43. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "The West Indies bowlers haven't had enough rest, their batsmen haven't done a good enough job for them. The seam bowling by England was excellent, the spin bowling by England was pathetic."

  44. Eng 9-0 (Cook 2, Trott 7)

    In contrast to Cook, who even during his barren runs has managed to radiate a certain amount of calm assurance at the crease, Trott is a nervous, fidgety, shuffly, scratchy presence at the crease, like a hermit crab on moving day. Everything about his technique seems to suggest impermanence. And yet during his pomp in Test cricket, he was capable of remaining at the crease for extraordinarily long periods of time, almost immovable. He crabs across his crease to work Taylor into the leg side for two.

    Jonathan Trott
  45. Vote

    Greatest West Indies fast bowler?

    Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Colin Croft and Joel Garner (below) formed a pretty mean fast bowling attack in the early 1980s, while Malcolm Marshall and Curtly Ambrose were equally formidable.

    And don't forget the fearsome Wesley Hall, the original quick who set the standard for all the truly great bowlers who followed. But which one was the best?

    Might be impossible to pick one, but that's your task in today's vote, which you can find in the tab on your mobile or on the right on your desktop screen.

    "Trott would naturally be thinking it might be his last international innings. You know what's going to happen now, with all the pressure off he's going to bat magnificently and get a hundred."

  47. Eng 7-0

    Jonathan Trott is standing way back in his crease to Shannon Gabriel, desperately trying to counteract that fatal forward press which has been his downfall in this series. He hasn't quite rid himself of it yet, but he manages to play a waist-high delivery well enough, paddling it down to fine leg for a single.

    Jay: England should open with Buttler and give him the license to go all native on the WI attack.

  49. Eng 5-0 (Cook 1, Trott 4)

    Cook survives the hat-trick ball and gets off the mark with a single to midwicket. Jonathan Trott avoids a pair with a clip off his legs for four. Truly, you would have to have a flint heart not to be willing Trott to make a score here...

    Well, Jermaine Blackwood batted really well, but overall you'd have to say that was pretty wretched by West Indies. They didn't show the discipline and application necessary to prosper on a slightly uneven, tricky pitch.

    A real mixed bag from England's bowlers but James Anderson stood out once again, showing superb control and mastery of swing to bamboozle the top-order batsmen, then unflinching patience to prevail when the tail-enders were trying to hit him out of the park.

    6-42 for Anderson, his best Test figures overseas.

    If we see this many shots in Mayweather-Pacquiao tonight, we'll be lucky.

    Shannon Gabriel enters, with Jermaine Blackwood in real danger of being left high and dry. He's on 74 at the moment - make that 78 as he slices Moeen over cover for four. Moeen then duffs a run-out opportunity, failing to gather the ball cleanly with Gabriel on his heels.

    Taylor b Anderson 15 (WI 178-9)

    This is kamikaze stuff from the West Indies. It's hang-the-consequences batting from Jerome Taylor, striking Anderson audaciously into the top tier, lofting him over mid-off for four, and then aiming a suicidal swipe at a full, reverse-swinging delivery and having his furniture comprehensively rearranged. Five wickets for Anderson, who has bowled superbly.

  67. WICKET

    Permaul c sub (Lyth) b Anderson 18 (WI 162-8)

    Oh, Veerasammy. He just can't help but push his luck. He collects two fours off Jimmy Anderson with a poke over extra-cover and a flip off his hips, but he goes for one too many, and ends up stabbing a well-disguised cutter straight to short leg. Sub fielder Adam Lyth, who has been fired at like a clay pigeon in that close position, takes a smart catch.

    Moeen Ali, who sent down some absolute nonsense in the afternoon session, is handed the ball at the other end. Yowls of thwarted jubilation from Jos Buttler and the close fielders as the ball beats Permaul's bat and scuttles millimetres past the off stump before running away for four. Sadly, Moeen can't keep it on the money - another short delivery is swivelled on mercilessly by Jermaine Blackwood and dispatched into the leg side for a one-bounce four.

    Thank you Jamie. Well what a topsy-turvy day of cricket it's been. West Indies had got themselves into such a strong position with a fine bowling display to restrict England to 257, but their batting order has collapsed with the tragic inevitability of a flat-pack bookcase that you've spent three hours assembling, as soon as you gingerly place the first slim novella on its shelves.

    WI 139-7 (118 behind)

    The 6ft 7 Broad tests out the 5ft 6 Permaul, who has a Test best of 20 from his four previous matches, but he survives and that is tea. That 28-over session has produced 102 runs and four wickets. England presumably in charge, but the dangerous Blackwood unbeaten on 67 from 71 balls.

    "England are trying to make this ball reverse now. The last three throws have come in and Jos Buttler has jogged back to let it bounce. You can't throw the ball into the pitch, so that's the legal way of letting it get scuffed up."

  81. WI 139-7 (Blackwood 67, Permaul 1)

    Blackwood obviously thinks there is not much batting to come. Having swung and missed at Stokes he makes perfect contact with a soaring lofted drive but to gasps from the crowd a steward drops the ball - and his water - 15 yards or so over the ropes at mid-on.

    "It's been a strange performance by England in the field. There's been some lovely bowling, there's been some utter rubbish. I've never seen so many long hops in one session before."

  89. WI 119-6 (Broad 1-28 from 8)

    Broad's kicking up his heels as he runs in, thriving on the support he received from the large English contingent when he returned to field at fine-leg. He's in the mid-80's in terms of mph, but strays down the leg-side a couple of times, allowing Holder to collect a pair of twos.

  90. WI 115-6 (Blackwood 48, Holder 1)

    For some reason, young Joe is still plugging away from round the wicket, but he is unceremoniously thumped over cow corner for six by Blackwood. This really highlights the lack of options for captain Cook. Finally Adam Lyth is involved for England in this series - but as a sub fielder for the injured Ballance.

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "Beautifully pitched up, Broad just tempted him outside off stump, and the ball just held its line. I think Broad's getting his bowling back, I think he'll be bowling well by the time the Ashes come around."

  92. WICKET

    Ramdin c Buttler b Broad 13 (WI 107-6)

    But Broad has made a timely breakthrough, the ball nipping away a fraction outside off-stump, Ramdin going for the drive and feathering a low catch to Buttler behind the stumps.

    Stuart Broad takes Ramdin
  93. WI 107-5 (Root 1-26 from 8)

    Ballance's wrist saved four but two more wretched half trackers from young Roe have got what they deserved, nicely put away by Blackwood who is into the 40s now.

  94. Ouch!

    Gary Ballance will be wishing Joe Root had been taken out of the attack as well. Yet another rank long hop from his ex flat-mate is savagely pulled by Blackwood and crashes into Ballance's wrist standing about two yards away at short-leg. It has already turned crimson, there is not much the physio can do for that and Ballance is understandably going off.

    Gary Ballance
  95. WI 99-5 (Blackwood 33, Ramdin 13)

    Broad back in the attack but the final ball of the over is short and wide and the phlegmatic Ramdin cuts it to the boundary. What would be a retrievable first innings deficit for the Windies? will there BE a first innings deficit?

  96. WI 95-5 (162 behind)

    Awful ball from Joe way down the leg-side, Ramdin gets a tickle on it and only the athletic figure Jordan prevents the boundary, saving one run.

  97. Text 81111

    Ade: Re Neil Edwards (18:50) interesting point, but your taking an enormous leap of faith to think Jordan could bat at number 6 in Test cricket!

  98. WI 91-5 (Blackwood 32, Ramdin 6)

    Just the single from Jordan's over, and his opening six overs have gone for only four runs. He has not looked particularly dangerous but he's holding his end up superbly, so to speak.

  99. Email

    Ian in Barcelona: Adil Rashid is unquestionably a better spin bowler than Joe Root. Ben Stokes and Chris Jordan are picked ahead of Rashid. Root is put on to bowl before either Stokes or Jordan, relegating them to fifth and sixth choices behind Anderson, Broad, Moeen and Root. The logic simply does not tie up, Mr Moores.

  100. WI 90-5 (Root 1-14 from 6)

    A maiden from Root, perhaps as much due to Windies skipper Ramdin not wanting to get out immediately after the drinks break as any great devilment with the ball.

    Daniel Furkins: Ah, 88-5. Eng on top? Since Haddin repeatedly crucified us when Aus had a similar score in the ashes I'm not holding my breath.

    Neil Edwards: Starting to think that Jordan could become a good all-round number 6 instead of Stokes, leaving an opening for Plunkett.

    Tino Best

    West Indies fast bowler on BBC Test Match Special

    "Jordan is one of those guys who will always give you 100%, but I think he just needs to drive through a bit more with his action. When you're a fast bowler you've got to have that desire to bowl fast."

  105. Email

    Ray in Swansea: This is really starting to remind me of England v India last summer now. Some good initial performances from England's opponents, including India outbowling us in our own conditions, but once we got over the line in one match they folded like a house of cards, confidence shot for the rest of the series.

  106. Drinks break

    WI 90-5 (Jordan 0-3 from 5)

    Still plenty of sunshine for the supporters to enjoy, and there is an England football shirt from the 1982 World Cup in evidence. Blackwood calmly keeps out Jordan and the drinks buggy is ushered onto the field.

  108. WI 89-5 (Root 1-14 from 5)

    Blackwood not finding things easy against Root from round the wicket but he picks up a boundary into the leg-side. England won't mind him going for his shots though.

    James Gutteridge: Jordan's close catching could buy him a long term place in this team, the new Collingwood for sure.

  110. Salisbury first man to dismiss Shiv

    Ian Salisbury holds the honour of being the first man to dismiss Shiv Chanderpaul in Test cricket (see 18:14 entry).

    The former Surrey, Sussex and Warwickshire leg-spinner, who took 20 wickets at 76.95 in his 15 Tests, bowled Chanderpaul for 62 on his way to taking 4-163 in West Indies' 556 all out.

    England's other frontline bowlers in their innings defeat that match? Chris Lewis, Alan Igglesden, and Angus Fraser, while Graeme Hick and Mark Ramprakash bowled 35 overs between them (without taking a wicket).

    Ian Salisbury
  111. WI 84-5 (Blackwood 31, Ramdin 0)

    In addition to his peerless slip fielding, Jordan is doing a good job with the ball, keeping Blackwood's attacking instincts in check, finally conceding his first runs from the final ball of his fourth over.

    "That's an absolute blinder. Jordan is remarkable in that position, I've never seen anything like him. He produced the right hand from nowhere, it's the kind of catch that renders you speechless."

  113. WICKET

    Chanderpaul c Jordan b Root 25 (WI 82-5)

    That's how they're going to get him, through an outstanding piece of fielding. Jordan at slip again, was moving to his left, but with incredible reflexes he takes off to his right and clutches it one handed after Chanderpaul forced Root off the back foot. The 66-ball vigil ends.

    Chris Jordan
  114. WI 80-4 (partnership 43)

    The great Brian Charles Lara is 46 today. He'd probably still get a few out here today, the pitch seems to have well and truly flattened out. Jordan is intrepid, without causing much alarm for the batsmen. But three maidens is pretty impressive.

  115. Email

    Julian in Surrey: People joke about the Aussies watching this and hardly being filled with fear - well here's a different view, both Anderson and Cook running back into top form after a couple of years off their best - is actually something to worry about.

  116. Dropped catch

    WI 80-4 (Chanderpaul 24, Blackwood 28)

    Joe Root replaces Moeen - someone had to after that previous over really - with his brand of occasional off-spin from round the wicket and nearly breaks through with his first ball as Blackwood's leg glance just carries to leg gully but Ian Bell cannot quite scoop it up.

  119. WI 79-4 (Chanderpaul 24, Blackwood 27)

    Jordan is maintaining a good line on or around off-stump in the high 80's mph but Chanderpaul is not going to do anything adventurous in that region it would appear. A second successive maiden for the Sussex all-rounder.

    "Moeen Ali has been all over the place, just like Permaul for the West Indies yesterday."

  121. WI 79-4 (partnership 42)

    Sam Robson, can we call him former England opener? Anyway, he's just been dismissed for 178 from 300 balls for Middlesex against Durham at Lord's. More buffet bowling from Moeen, and even the obdurate Chanderpaul is not going to pass that up, pulling it emphatically through mid-wicket for four.

  122. Chanderpaul's Test debut in 1994

    Shiv Chanderpaul made his Test debut against England in Guyana in March 1994.

    He scored 62 in West Indies' thumping victory by an innings and 44 runs in the second Test of the series. Brian Lara scored 167 and Jimmy Adams 137 while Curtly Ambrose took 8-95 in the match.

    Do you remember who dismissed the then 19-year-old Chanderpaul?

  123. WI 67-4 (190 behind)

    After three overs for nine runs, Anderson makes way for Jordan, who has three slips in place for Chanderpaul, standing a foot or so outside the crease. He's not tempted outside the off-stump and the waiting game continues.

  124. Post update

    Graeme Swann

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "Moeen's just trying to turn the ball a bit too hard and rushing through his action a bit too much. He just needs to slow himself down and not put too much pressure on himself."

  125. WI 67-4 (Chanderpaul 17, Blackwood 22)

    Geoffrey will not be impressed by this bowling from Moeen, a half tracker and Blackwood rocks back and launches into over mid-wicket for only the third six of the match. Two more long hops with the next two balls are pulled for four.

  126. WI 53-4 (204 behind)

    Breeze picking up a fraction at the Kensington Oval, just ruffling Chanderpaul's shirt. He's not going to be dismissed charging down the wicket, so how do you think England will get him? Very solid defence to Anderson and the swing seems to have gone for the moment.

  127. WI 53-4 (Moeen 1-9 from 5)

    Blackwood, who made an unbeaten century in the first Test, is only in his eighth Test, while Chanderpaul is playing his 164th. Just the single to Shiv from Moeen's over. Not much spin after lunch yet.

    Simon Boendermaker: If England can get Chanderpaul out, there's no reason not to think they can be batting again before stumps.

  129. WI 52-4 (Chanderpaul 16, Blackwood 8)

    Blackwood opens his account with two nonchalant flicks to the boundary through the leg-side when Anderson is for once off his intended target.

    Mike France: Why do so many batsmen open the face of the bat? I read that Bradman played with the bat face slightly closed.

    Phil Coulson: 257 is not looking as bad a score as it did one-and-a-half hours ago. Windies' batting is as awful as Jimmy is good.

  131. WI 44-4 (Moeen 1-8 from 4)

    Chanderpaul, who is facing mid-wicket with his crab-like stance as the bowler approaches, picks up a four to fine-leg when Moeen strays down the leg-side. All the fours on the scoreboard and thoughts turn to the late, great umpire, dear old David Shepherd.

  132. WI 38-4 (Chanderpaul 10, Blackwood 0)

    So, the seventh wicket of the day has gone and not surprisingly Jimmy Anderson is back in the attack looking for another. Shiv Chanderpaul once batted for 675 minutes for 136 not out against India and he's going to have to dig in again. Three slips and a gully await an edge but the 40-year-old keeps him out, pinching a single from the final ball of the over.

  133. WICKET

    Bravo c Jordan b Moeen 9 (WI 37-4)

    Welcome back for the afternoon session and it is an immediate breakthrough for England. Not the most convincing of strokes off the back foot, and it flies to slip where the safe hands of Chris Jordan make no mistake with the low chance.
