  1. Goodbye!

    Right, we're going to call it a day.

    You can catch up with all the action from Antigua in Jack Skelton's match report and the TMS podcast with Aggers and Sir Alastair Cook will be ready shortly.

    We'll be back tomorrow from 13:30 GMT to see what the second day has to offer.

    Until then...

    The one concern for me is the amount of overs that James Anderson and Ben Stokes bowled last week. I just hope that hasn't taken too much out of them.

    They bowled 50 overs each, that is a big spike compared to what they're used to.

    The mental thing tomorrow is making sure we don't think 'here we go again'

    And one last word from Alastair Cook...

  4. 'Bairstow played a brilliant innings'

    Alastair Cook

    There's two ways in that situation. The way I played I would have just been thinking about getting through to lunch. But Jonny's strength is taking the bowler on, he would have been thinking about taking him on.

    He played a brilliant innings. It was such a shame the lunch break came for him, he didn't need that.

    It wasn't a great shot but that fifty in those circumstances was a brilliant knock.

    MC‏: What a sport Test cricket is! It’s by far the greatest sport in the world , ebbs and flows, constant story lines unfolding, just such a joy to watch! Also shows the importance of the coin toss, has any other sport relied so heavily on the coin toss?

    They have to stay in the game tomorrow. It’s a massive day for the series. They have to stay calm and patient. I think there will be balls in there that will take wickets. They are in the game, but it will be a real test of character.

    Rae: WI v Eng, surely the big question is how on earth has this England team won 8 of the last 10 Tests they have played!

    I think people underestimate Mo’s character. Just because he gets out in innocuous ways, he doesn’t mean he doesn’t have the fight for the battle – he does. He played well. The way he batted, he deserved more than 60.

  9. Post update

    It's been good to see Moeen get a score too - his first half-century for 10 innings wasn't the most fluent but it came at a crucial time for England.

    It was a fascinating day’s cricket. There was lots of indifferent bounce, some hostility from the West Indies fast bowlers early on. Then there was a quieter passage of play, Moeen and Foakes played very well. And there were a few deliveries from the England bowlers at the end.

    You have to give Brathwaite and Campbell a lot of credit, they hung in there without doing anything very rash.

  11. Post update

    I honestly don't think England have been terrible. It wasn't Barbados bad, thanks to Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali. And there were some deliveries that you just couldn't do anything about.

    They bowled OK too, but it was just that fraction too short.

    Kraigg Braithwaite isn't pretty to watch but he didn't look in any trouble.

    Campbell did ride his luck - you've got to say on another day those four or five shots or that sweep off Stuart Broad could have gone anywhere and it could have been very different - but after he got through that he looked very calm.

  13. Post update

    More from Jonny Bairstow: "Tomorrow will be a interesting day. I thought we bowled really well tonight and we were unlucky not to get a few nicks. To be 30 off 21, 22 overs I think is a testament to the way the boys bowled."

  14. 'West Indies have won today'

    Alastair Cook

    Former England captain on The Cricket Social

    West Indies have won today, England are behind in the game. They have to dust themselves off tonight. If they can get out on a roll, 30-0 becomes 70-6, they are back in the game.

  15. Post update

    Jonny Bairstow on keeping in place of Ben Foakes: "I found out about eight minutes before we were going out. You've got to go out and it's like riding a bike in many ways - you catch a few and you're straight back into the rhythms. Hopefully Foakesy is OK for tomorrow."

  16. 'England are not out of this game'

    Alastair Cook

    Former England captain on The Cricket Social

    England are not out of this game. It doesn't matter what West Indies get, England are not out of this game. We'd love a shower to get that moisture back in the pitch and the ball must do something tomorrow morning.

  17. 'You didn't feel in on this pitch'

    England's Jonny Bairstow on Sky Sports: "We saw on multiple occasions the variable bounce. They put balls in good areas and made us make decisions on a pitch that was very bowler friendly first up.

    "I don't think you felt in because you always knew there was a ball in there that might bounce. You've got three guys that are well over six foot and I think it's something that its difficult to contend with when there is variable bounce in the pitch."

    SMS Message: I make that another shocking day from England. Regardless of the pitch Windies showing how you bat responsibly and resist playing ridiculous shots when opening in Tests (apart from that attempted ramp shot). Disappointing. from Jim, Bucks

  19. 'The variable bounce was the most I've seen'

    Alastair Cook

    Former England captain on The Cricket Social

    England will be feeling hard done by. Barbados was a horror show, but those were tough conditions. Looking back, it was a good toss to win. In the first two or three hours, the variable bounce was the most I have seen in my career.
