Tremendous improvement from the last match but we could have been in a much better position had a few catches been taken...if we didn't drop Root  on 8 and Stokes on 9 in the first innings our lead would have been much bigger. We dropped Root again on 10 in the second innings and it seems he's cashing in now.....We need  early wickets tomorrow morning or this match could get away from us. .....And why is Holder not  bowling Bishoo?!?

West Indies have turned the corner..... ;D

Seriously, what an astonishing result, with five wickets to spare and overs to spare to boot.

It also seems as if a jumbie was preventing both England and West Indies from catching well.

Cook alone put down two catches in West Indies' second innings.

I hope this is not mere aberration and a sign of things to come.

With Shai Hope, though, one can only hope (sorry, I could not resist  ;)).

They have turned the corner for the 67th time. if they do the usual then the next test they will lose by 8 wickets or 200 runs. Hope I am wrong.

One thing that has to improve is the catching. I have never seen so many spilled chances. With that said, England dropped so many catches as well. For a side that normally catches so well, I am astounded by England's shocking performance in the area of catching.
