Joe Root 25th TON: England captain as ususal was sublime in his approach as he completed his eighth test hundred in 19 Tests since the start of 2021.

Root could have been given caught behind on 23 and was dropped on 34 but ended 119 not out – his 25th Test ton and second in as many innings.

England’s ascendancy was checked slightly by the loss of Dan Lawrence to end the day, after he compiled a dazzling 91.

Lawrence had looked on course for his maiden Test ton after combining with Root for a brilliant, aggressive stand of 164, but chipped Jason Holder to extra cover in the final over.

Root had laid a platform with Alex Lees, who made 30 from 138 balls, after opener Zak Crawley was caught behind for a duck in the fourth over.

The late wicket boosted West Indies who had otherwise been wasteful on another flat pitch.

West Indies missed chances:
Didn’t review when Joe Root was caught behind on 23 (off Holder).
Dropped (by Joshua Da Silva) Root on 32 off the bowling of Roach.
Dropped (by Alzarri Joseph) Dan Lawrence on 72 (off Seales).
