Cricket-England in command, 231 runs ahead of West Indies on day three
West Indies have already won the series, 2-0 up, but their chances of a sweep went from slim to almost none amid a flurry of England runs. The morning sessions started well enough for West Indies when Rory Burns clipped the first ball of the day to square leg, straight into the hands of Alzarri Joseph, sending the opener packing for 10.
Keemo Paul picked up the wicket but his morning turned sour when he later incurred what appeared to be a thigh injury. He left the oval on a stretcher. Keaton Jennings was the only other England batsman dismissed in the first session, by Joseph.
Jennings' wretched tour continued when he allowed an innocuous delivery to hit his thigh pads before the ball trickled onto the stumps so softly that it barely dislodged a bail. Jennings had a wry smile on his face as he left the Darren Sammy Stadium with 23 runs against his name, his highest score in four knocks in this series.
