    I don’t know if this is a good thing or not, but Dom Bess’ skip at the beginning of his run-up really is reminiscent of Nathan Lyon.

    Kraigg Brathwaite, first 50 of the match. He’s played very nicely indeed. Great control, skill levels and playing the ball late.

  3. 50 for Brathwaite

    The first fifty of the match goes to Kraigg Brathwaite.

    You could easily have not noticed with only the West Indies balcony here to applaud.

    Only a slight wave of the bat from the batsman. He looks sheepish to be doing so with no-one in the ground.

    Andrew Stone: Steve Smith – organises nets from 2nd January every year. Padded up for throw downs two hours before each game. First to hijack the score book when he comes off the field and pesters the scorer to credit him with a leg bye.

  5. Archer bangs away once more with his frustration building despite Bess’ wicket.

    This is why…

    This is not an easy wicket to start on, especially when you’re facing the likes of Jofra Archer. You have to play the ball straight and as late as you possibly can.

  7. WI 107-2

    Jofra Archer has the new batsman in his sights now.

    His first ball is a lovely delivery that squares Brooks up. Archer has a smile and a quiet word.

    The second is a full toss that Brooks puts away.

  8. Leo: It’s a sign of being a clever spinner to take wickets on a pitch like this. Bess is a very promising young bowler who learns things quickly. Exciting.

  9. WI 103-2

    Right-hander Brooks isn’t someone I have seen a lot about but Carlos Brathwaite speaks very highly of him. He expects big things from Brooks in this series.

    He gets off the mark early by dropping the ball into a big gap on the off side.

    England will hope they can get on a roll and get numbers three and four quickly. And they’re going to have to.

  11. Post update

    There was a bit of anger in Stokes’ celebration. England needed that.

    31-year-old Shamarh Brooks is the new batter in just his fourth Test.

    Stokes takes the catch with so much ease, it went fast and it was sharp. Shai Hope’s frustrations continue. His record in one-day cricket is so much better.

    There is the breakthrough. The pressure had been building on Hope, he hadn’t been the scorer in this partnership.

  14. WICKET

    Hope c Stokes b Bess 16 (WI 102-2)

    Gone now!

    It’s not the seamers but Dom Bess who makes the breakthrough. Shai Hope must be kicking himself.

    It’s a full, wide ball from Bess and Hope has a slash but he edges to Ben Stokes at slip who takes a very good catch.

  15. First hour highlights

    Not the first hour England were after.

    They have bowled well but chances haven’t gone to hand. When they did get the wicket indiscipline has cost them.

    The longer the wait for the breakthrough the louder the cries for Stuart Broad will get.

  16. Jeremy Garrett: I’m going say it: Broad and Woakes right now would be finding wickets. They are the bowlers who can find important wickets when others can’t. Leaving one out is bad enough, leaving both out leads to this.

  17. WI 101-1

    And the ball-tracking shows it would have been out lbw had Archer’s foot been behind the line.

    Insult added to injury.

    Carlos Brathwaite

    West Indies all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    So disappointing for England. They set up the batsman so beautifully. Only for it to be overturned for being a no-ball.

  19. Not out

    Ooops. Not good.

    Just when England thought they had the breakthrough it’s a no-ball.

    Only by a smidge but you just don’t need to be that close.

    We’re having a look at another angle but it’s clear for me.
