LUNCH: England are 49-3 vs WI

Social Share

AT NORTH SOUND, Antigua – The West Indies pacers won the first session, as England reached 49 for three at lunch on the first day of the first Test match.

Jerome Taylor, Kemar Roach and Jason Holder took one wicket apiece after West Indies won the toss.

Jonathan Trott was the first to fall, out for a duck, facing only three balls. Making a return to Test cricket after nearly 18 months, he could not handle a delivery from Taylor and was caught at first slip by Darren Bravo.

England were 1-1 in the first over.

Captain Alastair Cook was clean bowled by Roach as his miserable run of Test form continues. He was out for 28 and England were 22-2.

Gary Balance had been struggling against Roach’s line to the ball just outside offstump and a few went past the outside edge.

It was Holder who benefited, though, steering a thick edge straight into Bravo’s hands.

The not out batsmen are Ian Bell and Joe Root on 10 and 11, respectively.  (SAT)
