WI lose three wickets before tea

West Indies reached 132 for three in 51.5 overs after rain forced an early tea interval on the opening day of the first cricket Test against England at Kensington Oval here on Wednesday.

Shai Hope was not out on 42 and Roston Chase on two as the Windies, who resumed from 89 for one at lunch, lost the wickets of opener Kraigg Brathwaite for 40 and the returning Darren Bravo, who made just two.

Both batsmen fell to all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has so far taken two for 33 in 13 overs.

In the morning session after the West Indies won the toss and batted, debutant left-handed Test opener John Campbell hit eight fours in a breezy 44 off 53 before he was trapped leg before wicket, sweeping at off-spinner Moeen Ali. (EZS)
