So that is it from the Wisden Trophy. Cricket came back after a break of more than 100 days and it came back with a very good fighting series but England showed their superiority and came back to win the series 2-1. Holder and co. showed fight but it was not enough in the end. A lot of positives to take and work with moving forward for the Caribbean nation. England now will welcome Ireland for a 3-match ODI series which will also kickstart the ICC World ODI Super League. Thanks for joining us for the coverage. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Until next time, goodbye and take care!
England skipper, Joe Root, tells that the last two weeks have been excellent and says they have been able to execute their plans that they had in the last two games. On the pace attack, he says that there is a lot of talent and can exploit different surfaces around the world. Credits Broad and says he is a fantastic player and says that the way he has come back and made things happen shows how good a player he is and is pleased that he has achieved the milestone. Tells he grabs the big moment in the series and stands up in difficult situations. Adds he is good with the younger players and is happy to impart that knowledge. Tells they are seeing the best bowlers and tells we should be happy to see two of the best bowlers perform and play together.
West Indies skipper, Holder admits that they did not put enough runs and says they should have put up big runs in the first innings of the last 2 Test. Chase says unlike Sibley and Burns they failed to score big and carry on. Tells that they won the first game and wanted to play their best team and clinch their series and it was just one of those decisions to . Tells they will first have to wait and see how the calendar is and on actually cricket he wants the batters to deliver and score big. Tells the bowler did well and congratulates Roach and Broad for their milestone. Admits it has been challenging to be in the bio secure bubble.
Roston Chase is named West Indies' Player of the Series for his performances with both the bat and all (Selected by England's coach). Roston says that when you do well against England you get a lot of credit in cricketing world which motivates him more. Says they spoke about plans and says the batters needed to put their hands up to win the series but they were unable to do that. Tells he felt comfortable in the crease and he had the opportunity in the first Test to make a century but after that it got more challenging as it was cold and the ball was nipping around. On his bowling, Chase says he has been leading as a spinner as he has been doing that for sometime. Tells he is still not where he wants to be but he is learning and going towards it.
For his terrific 10-wicket haul and 62 with the bat along with his performance in the second Test, Stuart Broad has been named the Player of the Match and Player of the Series for England (Selected by West Indies' coach). Broad says that it was a special milestone and he is happier that it helped them win the match and series. On his ambitions, he says he never set any target but tells he has learnt a lot and feels fresh and has worked on his techincal game and says he is looking forward for the future. On the bowling attack England have, tellls they have a battery of fast bowlers and thinks anyone can perform if called upon. Credits Chris Woakes for his performance and says he has been very good since they got into the bubble. On catching Anderson, he says that it is too far ahead and tells he is still at the peak of his power and though approaching 38 he is still firing on all cylinder.
Stay tuned as we wait for the captain's thoughts and also find out who the Man of the Match and Player of the Series are. A fair few contenders for the latter as we have had some very good performance by a few players in this series.
Stuart Broad had a Test to remember and he was in the mood to punish the Caribbean side. For the hosts, they needed weather to help them out but nature by itself could not do anything if they were unable to fight for themselves. They lost 2 wickets towards the end of Day 3 as Broad was spitting venom. Rain did give West Indies a little bit of hope as Day 4 was washed out but the tourists had lost the game in their head and showed little to no resistance as Broad added 2 more to his 2 from Day 3 and finished the Test with 10 wickets to add to his important fifty from the first innings and the consistency of Woakes saw him grab a 5-fer in the second innings to hand England a dominant win.
England then were always in a position to win it and it was going to take a miracle or English weather to avoid them a win. Building on their lead, the opening pair of Sibley and Burns took their time and batted the tourists out of the game with their fifties. Skipper Joe Root then came out after the dismissal of Sibley and his ODI-esque added impetus to the innings and ballooned that lead to 398 before Burns departed for 90 and the skipper decided they had enough. West Indies bowling struggled as Gabriel bowled just 5 overs and they had surrendered.
Momentum was with England and Broad and they carried it to the field as a brilliant display of seam bowling as they never let West Indies settle and chipped wickets regularly and bundled them to just 197 and carried a 172 runs lead. Stuart Broad was the tormentor in cheif as he grabbed a 6-wicket haul. The West Indies batting struggled and no one got going. The only saving grace for them was that they avoided the follow-on but apart from that there was nothing much to write about them with only skipper Holder and Dowrich showing some fight.
End of a fantastic Test series and England after being 1-0 down have shown their grit and strength to win the series 2-1. A very dominant performance from the hosts with both the bat and ball. West Indies showed a lot of promise at the beginning of the tour but with every Test and passing day in those Tests, they looked tired and their fight started to surrender. After being put into bat, the hosts were in a state of bother at 122/4 but a brilliant 140-run stand between Pope and Buttler along with Broad's counter-attacking 62 propelled them to 369. Kemar Roach was the pick of the bowlers for the hosts as he finished the first innings with a 4-fer.

Stuart Broad To Jermaine Blackwood OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! That is all over! Short of a length delivery on leg, Blackwood looks to pull but gets a faint edge. It goes towards the keeper where Jos Buttler dives to his left and takes a good catch. ENGLAND WIN THE MATCH BY 269 RUNS AND WIN THE SERIES 2-1!

Chris Woakes To Rahkeem Cornwall OUT!
OUT! LBW! Woakes joins the party and gets a 5-fer! Cornwall does not last long and a very tough Test match for him comes to an end. Poor footwork from Cornwall. Good length ball on off and angling in. Rahkeem looks to play but with no foot movement and gets trapped in the crease. The ball hits him flush on the pads. Appeal for LBW and the umpire gives Cornwall his marching order. He too does not review and walks to the pavilion.

Chris Woakes To Shane Dowrich OUT!
OUT! LBW! No need to review as it looks plumb! Another one bites the dust and this time it is Dowrich. Woakes has his 4th of the innings and this has been a fantastic spell from him. Picked up from where Broad left off. Fuller around off and nipping back in, Dowrich moves across and looks to defend but he misses and gets hit on the pads. The England players go up in appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Dowrich does not even consider about the review and follows the marching orders.

NOT OUT! No spike as the ball goes past the bat on Ultra Edge and England lose another review. Strange review from Root in the first place as there was no noise and neither was Archer too interested. Good length ball outside off, Blackwood looked to drive but the ball went behind and Buttler and Root started celebrating. The umpire was unmoved, Archer too was not in it. Root though straightaway signalled the 'T'. Replay rolled in and Ultra Edge had a flat line as the ball passed the bat. Waste of a review.
Review time! An appeal for caught behind! Blackwood is the man in question. Ultra Edge detects nothing and England lose their second review.

Chris Woakes To Jason Holder OUT!
OUT! LBW! Holder did not get any bat on it and it is plumb in front. West Indies' skipper and best batter departs and the tourists are falling like nine pins. Good length ball pitching on off and middle and nipping back in. Holder looks to play it straight but misses and gets hit on the pads. Woakes and co. go up in appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Holder decides to signal the 'T' straightaway. Only an inside edge could probably save him there. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows no involvement of bat. Ball Tracker then comes and brings bad news for Holder as it shows three reds. The skipper departs and along with him goes the tiny tinker of Caribbean hopes of survival.
Has Holder nicked it? The umpire thinks he has not and has been adjudged LBW. Let's see what the replays have to say.

NOT OUT! Daylight between bat and pad and LBW was never in contention to be fair. On the leg side, Holder looks to flick but the ball clips something and goes to Buttler. Woakes and Buttler go up in appeal but the umpire turns it down. Root decide to gamble and take the review. Replay rolls in and shows that the ball just clipped the thigh pad and not the bat as the willow was nowhere in the frame. Ball Tracker comes as a formality and shows that the ball is missing leg pole by miles.
Review time! It is for a caught behind down the leg side. Lets see what the replays have to say.

The English players are all sitting outside, which is an even better sign. The bad weather is mainly coming in from the west at the moment. Uh oh... the players are shifting inside, to their dressing room. Might have to get another cover on.
And we are off again! The drizzle has intensified and there is another interruption. The good thing is that there is only one cover on, so this should not be too big a break. The fourth umpire is on the field, talking to the groundstaff.

Chris Woakes To Jermaine Blackwood OUT!
OUT! Run Out! The last thing West Indies needed was a run out and that is what has happened here. Excellent work from Dom Bess! Good length delivery on off, Blackwood plays it towards point and looks for a single. There is a bit of hesitation but they decide to go for it. Bess at backward point runs to his right, gets to the ball and turns. He has to score a direct hit as Buttler has not reached the stumps and Bess does hit the stumps. Excellent from the spinner. Chase is well short of his crease and the umpire does not even go upstairs. Chase does not look back and continues his walk to the pavillion. Brilliant from Bess, he has not had much to do but he has shown his concentration and has done a job when called upon albeit in the field.

We should have started by now but there has been another burst of a shower. That has delayed proceedings again. So we shall resume at 1.35 PM LOCAL (1235 GMT).
The current situation is of some bright sunshine but there are some dark clouds lurking behind. All eyes would be glued on Roston Chase. Before this Test, he had faced 1017 balls in the 4th innings alone, since 2016. The next best for West Indies is Kraigg Brathwaite with 836.
Since early Lunch has been taken, we shall not be losing any overs. There are 80.3 overs left in the day, so there is plenty of possible play left. Now, whether West Indies would be able to exercise that option or not, is another issue. 5 wickets in hand and more importantly, two new batsmen at the crease.
England were on the money, not bowling too many bad balls and keeping the ball on the right spot. Broad got his 500th victim and then Woakes struck twice. Anderson was tight as well.
Brathwaite and Hope started cautiously but then the former was dismissed by a one that kept low. It is the shot selection of Shai Hope which will be questioned. This is what happens when one looks to come out of a bad rut - you live by the sword but you also die by it. That was followed by the dismissal of Shamarh Brooks and three wickets in the span of 46 balls has put West Indies on the mat.
A session which saw everything. Runs, flashes of blades, rain, wickets but above all - play. We missed this for the whole of Monday and are excited to see the game resume.
The rain has stopped and the umpires are back for an inspection. Doesn't look like they are going to recall the players. Yes, it is an EARLY LUNCH.
Ahh... Rain is back and the umpires have taken the players off. It looks like a passing shower. But umpire Kettleborough is talking to Joe Root, indicating something with his wristwatch. Is that an indication of an early Lunch?

Chris Woakes To Shamarh Brooks OUT!
OUT! Caught! Half the side back in the hut for West Indies! Woakes has his second and the tourists are surrendering without much of a fight here. Good length ball outside off, it nips in just a bit. Brooks looks to drive it towards mid on but without any foot movement and away from his body. The ball shapes in and kisses the inside edge as it goes low to the left of Buttler. He takes an easy catch behind the stumps. Looks like the only way West Indies can save this Test match is by looking up at the skies but at the moment they are not helping the tourists.

Chris Woakes To Shai Hope OUT!
OUT! Caught! Once again Hope gets a start and throws it away. A problem far too frequent in the recent years in the longest format. West Indies in big trouble here and have lost both their overnight batsmen. Woakes gets into the wicket column. Woakes bowls it slightly shorter outside off, Hope looks to pull it but ends up hitting it off the upper half of his bat. The ball goes high in the air in front of mid off. Three players are coming for it but Broad wants to be part of the action so he calls it out loudly. He keeps his eyes on the ball and takes a good catch. Hope's struggle in the longest format continues and there will be a lot of questions asked and he will have to retrospect and think, was that shot really necessary?

Stuart Broad To Kraigg Brathwaite OUT!
OUT! LBW! Broad enters the galaxy of greats and he has his 500th Test wicket. Brathwaite three years ago was Anderson's 500th wicket and now he has become his partner Broad's milestone victim. Proud moment for Broad, his friends and family. Broad bowls goes fuller on off, the ball comes back in and also keeps low after pitching. Brathwaite looks to defend but misses and gets hit low on the back foot. Broad and his teammates go up in appeal and the umpire raises his finger. That was as plumb as It could get and Brathwaite has a rare double. 583 balls left in the day, 7 wickets to defend...

In fact, the players are already on the field. Bright sunshine has enveloped the ground. Who would say that it was raining a while ago? English weather...
We are hearing that the covers are being removed. That seems to be a good sign. We should not be far from resumption.
More covers coming on but we can see plenty of wind and some blue sky. The problem with this type of days is that every time the ball goes into the outfield, it becomes wet and difficult to grip. England will hope that when they resume, the outfield is dry.
And we are going off. Does not look too big in the distance but just heavy enough to force the players off. Looks like a passing shower. Won't be surprised if we resume shortly. The English players are in absolutely no hurry to leave.
