    271 for 7 they have reached the tail with 88 more needed.

    It could be all over before Tea.

      351 for nine. Leach is on strike eight needed last ball of the over.

      Aus appeal for leg before the Umpire doesn't want to know.


      Stokes on strike.

          Lyons gets a single to tie the scores......and Stokes hits a boundary to win it.

            Very poor from Australia. In the last few overs a miss hit by Stokes dropped, an easy run out messed by Lyon dropping the ball and burning their last review on a hopeless LBW when 1 ball later a review would have won them the match. Also stuck too long with the quicks this morning. All the same. Amazing win by England, not far off Botham's effort long ago.

              The last pair scored 76, of which Leach scored one (from the second last ball) Stokes 74 with one extra.

              Of the 62 deliveries, Leach faced 17.

                The West Indies are in a bit of bother in Sabina Park, on Day Two of the Second Test.

                They won the toss and asked India to bat. India made 416.

                In reply, WI are 26 for 5 in 15 overs.

                Bumrah has taken 5 for 10 including a Hat Trick.

                EDIT He has gone off in the middle of his seventh over with either a calf strain or a cramp.

                FURTHER EDIT It was a cramp, he's back on the field.

                    West Indies are all out for 117, 299 behind, but India do not enforce the Follow on.

                      India are 73 for 4 at Tea, 372 ahead.

                        164 for 4 at Drinks, 463 ahead.

                        They'll surely declare soon and let their bowlers have an hour or so at the WI openers before the close.

                          India declare on 168 for 4 to leave the West Indies needing 468 to win in an hour-ish plus two days.

                            Bumrah is a tremendous bowler. One of those few who is a threat on any wicket.

                              His figures in the second innings of the First Test were 8 overs, 4 maidens, five wickets for 7 runs.
