    I have to apologize to the Windies.

    I switched over to them from football at 57-0 and first ball wicket, second ball wicket. 2-4 since I started watching, terribly jinxed them.

    Wood is reminding me of Harmison's spell at Sabina Park in 2004.

    Bowling with serious pace on a pitch suited to his style of bowling.

    Hopefully this ends the Sam Curran experiment.

    This is some top class pace bowling. Some horrid shots by West Indies definitely did not help though.

    England only on top because ECB used their filthy big 3 influence to get rid of Holder and then play mind games with the whole point penalties due to poor wicket in the last Test even though WI smashed them to pieces by scoring 300. If England win this, it will be among the most tainted victories in Test history and every England fan should be ashamed.

    Youíre taking contrarianism a bit far here. Holder has been censured for slowing the game down four times. As the West Indies people say - he that donít hear will feel.

    This is a predictably kneejerk opinion, but Joe Denly is looking rather good batting at 3 here. More so for the manner of his batting than the actual runs he has scored. Some exquisite shots under not a lot of pressure admittedly. Given that the cupboard is empty, I think he's done enough to be picked for the Ashes.

    'Really pleasing to show improvement' Ė Joe Root

    England captain Joe Root, who registered his 16th Test century after a patch of low scores, said he enjoyed the battle and was pleased with the improvement his side had shown in the third Test against Windies in St Lucia.

    Joe Root came into the game with scores of 4, 22, 7 and 7 in the previous two Tests of the series, both of which England lost to concede the series. Root snapped the string of low scores with a gritty century on Monday, February 11 to put his side in complete command.

    The knock came against an in-form attack, featuring the likes of Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach and Alzarri Joseph on a reasonably lively wicket. Root acknowledged that it was a battle, which is what made the knock more special.

    "It was a good hard scrap," said Root after third day's play. "But it was really enjoyable because sometimes, when things aren't quite happening for you, you think you're battling a little bit. To come out the other side is really pleasing.

    "My feet haven't always been doing what I want them to so it's been a constant battle to find a formula that gets me off to a good start. Once you're off and running things become a little bit easier. It's nice to see all the hard work come to the fore by being here at the end of the day not out."

    Root's improvement mirrored an overall improvement by the team, and they're now 448 runs in front with four wickets still in hand, including that of Root batting on 111. The series may be lost, but this is a good chance for England to show why they're ranked so highly on the MRF Tyres ICC Test rankings.

    "It's been a tough series for me personally and for the guys. We've worked extremely hard on this trip but things haven't gone as we wanted. We've not played good cricket at times.

    "So to respond as we have today and be in this position of strength with two days left is really pleasing. It's really pleasing to show improvement and willingness to adapt to conditions. Even though the series is gone there's still a lot to play for.

    Root enjoyed a fantastic 74-run stand with Joe Denly for the second-wicket and was at the other end to see the 32-year-old bring up his maiden half-century before he got out for 69. The captain richly lauded the effort.

    "He played beautifully," Root said. "I thought he played with good balance, good style and grace - as you'd expect him to when he gets runs. He should have a lot of confidence with the way he played."

    As is often the case, England seem to have found something close to the right team too late.

    Batting practice for another session, then five sessions to bowl WI out.

    Gabriel might be in trouble for some comments on Root & Denly in 2nd session .
    See no point in batting further as 448 ahead is surely enough .

    Root out to Gabriel for 122. England declare. Windies need 485.

    Now Campbell out to Anderson.

    WI misses their inspiring leader. They are a brittle side that needed a great captain. It is no coincidence that the team that thumped England in the last 2 tests (even when they played 8 batsmen) will implode like this. There is no other reason one can think of.

    4 down. Although the series is won, WI was expected to put up a fight. They just collapsed in heap in both innings.

    Hosts playing like visitors finally .
    The most pleasant part of this series were the pitches , conducive to bowling .
    The most irritating part of the series was every single English commentator & expert on TV & BBC talking about Ashes right from day 1 of first Test till to date as if being rubbished 2-0 & the series at hand did not matter .

    This won’t make sense unless you are English or Australian.

    England made right selections & for the first time their batting & bowling clicked in the series so now windies are on the edge of defeat despite playing 7 batsmen & yes they are also missing their 8th batsman holder.
