    Not a particularly successful insertion.
    Don’t think the pitch is quite doing enough to take the remaining wickets in time- losing overs to bad light last night was very costly.

      Presume you're referring to the follow on. There's 3 days play left - unless at least a full day is lost to bad weather it'll be a bit of a doddle for England. The Windies just don't have enough real quality players to threaten England

        Yes- was referring to follow on.

          England declared on 226 for 2 to set West Indies 399 to win, in a little over two days. (In reality, rain is expected to cause most if not all of tomorrow to be lost)

          An opener and a Night Watchman were lost in the six overs before stumps. 10 for 2, 389 needed.

          Broad took all six WI wickets to fall today to land on 499 career test wickets.

          He'll surely get the 500

            Bowled like a guy ten years younger today- surprised he and Anderson didn’t open the bowling this morning, once Archers over was finished, but I guess the thinking was that follow on or not, England would need them bowling today, with the likelihood of no play tomorrow. Hard to see WI lasting out a full day when they do get going again.

              50% chances of rain all day tomorrow.

              Given issues re getting run ups dry etc might not be much cricket.

                I don’t want to disappoint you but BBC weather is 15% until lunchtime and less that 10% thereafter.

                  Looking at Manchester forecast on another site yesterday they were going for 50%. Mind I wouldn't have much faith in the WI surviving 1+ sessions anyway.

                    81 for 5. They may delay Lunch so as to finish off the Match.

                    EDIT: it has started to rain, so they are taking an early Lunch 84 for 5.

                      Windies really need some fresh test-level batting talent to come through before they make it back to the top table. They've made that England pace attack look a lot better than it is.

                            WI all out for 129.

                            England take the match by 269 runs and the Series 2-1, to regain the Wisden Trophy.

                              Dominated last two tests and deserved fully.

                                It was a bit changeable.
