Wickets like rain at the Oval

WICKETS FELL LIKE NINEPINS at Kensington Oval yesterday.

Never before in the Caribbean have 18 wickets tumbled on a day of Test cricket.

On a day of high drama, West Indies and England lost a plethora of wickets to leave the third and final Test fascinatingly poised after the second day.

The home team quickly polished off the last three England wickets in the morning session to dismiss them for 257, but West Indies then crashed for 189.

Denesh Ramdin’s men hit back late in the day to reduce England to 39 for five in their second innings for an overall lead of 107.
