BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (AP) – England were wobbling at 39 for five in their second innings and leading by 107 runs after dismissing the West Indies for 189 on an extraordinary second day of the third cricket Test on Saturday.
As 18 Test wickets fell, a record for a single day at Kensington Oval, fortunes seesawed by the session.
West Indies appeared to have the advantage in the morning after quickly wrapping up England’s first innings for 257, when only 17 runs were added at a cost of three wickets.
But England were on top during the afternoon, as West Indies laboured to score in reply, wickets falling regularly. West Indies, 37 for four at one point, were all out for 189 within seven overs after tea, James Anderson taking the last three wickets to finish with six for 42.
England led by 68, but looked like they might not even score 68 in their second innings as the West Indies bowled just as well as England to have the visitors staggering by stumps at 39 for five, leading by 107.
