A whopping 14 wickets fell on day one of the series-deciding third Test at Lord’s with the West Indies skittled for 123 and England slumping to 46-4.
In the first Test at HQ ever to take place in September, Ben Stokes’ career-best 6-22 ensured the Windies lasted just 57.3 overs and left James Anderson one shy of becoming the first English bowler to 500 Test wickets.
But Stokes (13no) – omitted from England’s T20 squad against Windies at his home ground in Durham – was thrust into action with the bat in just the 15th over as Kemar Roach and Jason Holder both struck twice.
Watch the video above for highlights from day one, including the two scalps that took Anderson to 499, 14 years after he claimed his first Test wicket – Zimbabwe’s Mark Vermeulen – at the same venue.
Mark Stoneman (1) nicked off in the third over of England’s reply and was soon joined back in the shed by Alastair Cook (10), Tom Westley (8) and Joe Root (1), leaving Stokes and Dawid Malan (13no) at the crease at stumps.
