Eng vs WI: Windies 143/4 at Tea, need 57 more runs to win Southampton Test

Eng vs WI: Windies 143/4 at Tea, need 57 more runs to win Southampton Test

Southampton, Jul 12 (UNI) A gritty unbeaten fifty from Jermaine Blackwood help West Indies reach 143-4 at Tea on Day 5, needing 57 more runs to win against England on Day 5 of the first Test at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday.

Blackwood remained not out on 65 from 110 balls while Shane Dowrich was batting with him and went into the break on 15.

West Indies were reeling at 35/3 at Lunch but the 73-run stand between Roston Chase ( 37 off 88 balls) and Blackwood steadied the visitor's innings. John Campbell will come out to bat if required after retiring hurt due to a toe injury.

Earlier, chasing a target of 200, Windies got off on a wrong note as opener John Campbell got retired hurt in the 4th over of 2nd innings after a Jofra Archer's yorker hit his toe.

Soon, Archer sent Kraigg Brathwaite (4 off 18 balls) and Shamarh Brooks for a duck to the Pavillion. Shai Hope (9 off 23 balls) did play some glorious cover drive but Mark Wood cleaned him up to give England the third breakthrough.

In the morning session, England resumed their second innings from 284/8 and could add 29 runs more as they were bundled out for 313.

Shannon Gabriel finished as the pick of the bowlers with 5 wickets, his 6th in Test cricket, while Roston Chase and Alzarri Joseph bagged a couple of scalps each. Zak Crawley was England's highest scorer with 76 runs.

England had scored 204 in the first innings while Windies scored 318 in reply.

Brief scores: West Indies 318 & 143/4 (45 overs) vs England (204 & 313). Jermaine Blackwood (65*), Roston Chase (37), Jofra Archer (3/35)
