WEST INDIES managed just one wicket in the post lunch session as England staged a mini recovery at tea on the first day of the third and final Test at Kensington Oval today.

From a lunch position of 71 for three, the visitors battled to 151 for four at the day’s second interval.

Captain Alistair Cook is leading the fightback with a patient unbeaten 60. The left-hander has faced 170 balls and struck eight fours in four hours at the crease.

Cook and Moeen Ali, who is on 37, have featured in an unbroken fifth wicket partnership of 60 after joining forces at 91 for four.

They came together when left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul removed Joe Root for 33 by way of a catch to wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin after a fourth wicket partnership of 53 with Cook.

Pacer Jason Holder, who dismissed Gary Ballance (18) and Ian Bell (0) in the pre-lunch session, has taken two for 24 in 11 overs, while Gabriel has one for 21 in eight overs and Permaul one for 58 from 13 overs. (HG)
