West Indies finished the day 339 runs ahead on 127/6 in their second innings after Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali led a spirited but seemingly hopeless fightback with the ball.

It was a third critical crumple for England in the Caribbean in present day times, having been skittled for 46 in Trinidad in 1994 and 51 in Jamaica 10 years prior.

Cockroach did a large portion of the harm, taking five wickets for 17 keeps running as he cleared out Rory Burns, Jonny Bairstow, Stokes, Jos Buttler and Moeen in a radiant spell after lunch. The majority of his wickets were amassed in about 27 conveyances.

Britain had risen for the evening on 30/1, with Keaton Jennings the man to follow showering Jason Holder to gorge. Jennings' proceeded with battles against crease are a waiting concern, however his 17 runs wound up being the best score of the innings.

Consumes included just two preceding he pushed forward at his first ball after the restart, enabling it to skim off the bat and into off stump, and Bairstow was alongside surrender to one that spat off a length, brushed his elbow and unstuck the safeguards.

Brief scores:
West Indies 289 (Hetmyer 81, Hope 57, Chase 54, Anderson 5-46, Stokes 4-59) and 127 for 6 (Moeen 3-41) lead England 77 (Roach 5-17) by 339 runs

Holder contributed from the opposite end to evacuate equal chief Joe Root, lining up 11 progressive spots with a plumb lbw.

Insect before long recovered the spotlight, revving up to hit with back to back balls. Feeds was given lbw on the back foot, unsuccessfully assessing a minor choice, while Moeen's shot was an inquisitive fold top-edged to fine leg.

Insect's fifth was likely the best, Jos Buttler constrained on to the back foot by a brutish steepler and feathering behind.

His partners at that point completed the activity, with Shannon Gabriel skipping out Sam Curran and Alzarri Joseph prodding edges from Ben Foakes and Adil Rashid.

Holder picked not to send the vacationers back in spite of a lead of 212, which was based on by a 52-run opening stand between John Campbell and Kraigg Brathwaite.
