We have a game on our hands. West Indies came back strongly in the evening session of the second day to punch a new-ball hole in the second England innings that left the visitors clinging on. Jonathan Trott, Alastair Cook, Ian Bell (this one completing a pair), Joe Root and Moeen Ali were all sent packing in the first 20 overs as West Indies celebrated and the crowd, a sea of England supporters, were quietened. All this after Jimmy Anderson had produced another virtuoso performance to help give England a first-innings lead of 69. How valuable that proves must await the final analysis, but England were soon tumbling into a deeply tricky situation of 39 for five at close of play. (The Guardian)
