A TREMENDOUS DISPLAY by the West Indies fast bowlers contrasted with a below par performance by the batsmen that left England holding the aces after the second day of the first cricket Test here yesterday at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

Bowling as if their lives depended upon it, Kemar Roach and Jerome Taylor maintained consistent line and length to limit England to 399 in their first innings after they sat comfortably overnight on 341 for five.

But by the close, the Windies batsman squandered several promising starts to their innings to end on 155 for four.

Earlier, Roach, bowling from the end named after his coach, Sir Curtly Ambrose, was on song with four for 94 and Taylor ended with three for 90.
