England Vs West Indies 3rd Test Day 3 Highlights Today On 9th September 2017

Lord’s basked in sunshine on a cool September afternoon as England eased to a nine-wicket win in the third Investec Test, giving their series victory an aspect of comfort it scarcely deserved. James Anderson’s career-best seven-wicket haul, which included his 500th in Tests, provided the excuse for champagne corks to pop early – though little excuse is needed here – and there was time to drink in the last of the Test summer, as Mark Stoneman and Tom Westley knocked off the runs required.

Anderson struck twice in his opening spell as England threatened to fatally constrict the West Indies innings but Hope, the “man of stone” on whom victory at Headingley was built, gave another display of his minerals. It may not have provided West Indies with a winning score but it served further notice of Hope’s burgeoning talent. West Indies’ hopes had rested squarely on his shoulders during the morning session when he was vigilance personified while losing three partners. But having faced 144 balls, Hope was finally removed – almost inevitably – by Anderson, in his second over after the interval. Anderson’s bellow of delight was unrestrained, in part because of the identity of the batsman and perhaps also down to the quality of the ball, which demanded a stroke before taking the edge with Hope stuck on the crease. That completed his five-wicket haul and he had sixth moments later when he bent a delivery in from round the wicket to beat Devendra Bishoo’s defensive prod and hit off stump.

Having been joined by his captain, Holder, the last West Indies batsman with an average above 20, Hope switched into a more assertive mode. He struck his first boundary, the reward for patiently navigating the previous 20 overs, with an elegant stroke through the covers off Ben Stokes – who then left the field with a suspected knee complaint – and brought up his half-century with a supremely timed on-drive off Toby Roland-Jones. Hope’s resistance left England mulling how many they would be happy to chase, but they could not have asked for a better start. Anderson, fresh from breaking the 500-wicket barrier and having switched to bowling from the Nursery End due to his pair of warnings for running on the pitch on the second evening, was immediately into his work. Chase faced only two deliveries, the second of which he chivvied into the gloves of a leaping Jonny Bairstow. Anderson ought to have had his second a few overs later when Blackwood slapped a drive to mid-off, but Broad saw the ball burst through his hands as he dived to his right. Broad thought he had picked up Blackwood himself, only for a thin inside edge to save him from lbw on review; but the batsman was transparently unsettled and, in Anderson’s next, steered a catch to the keeper.

There was another drop to come – the 25th of the series – when Broad flew to his left in his follow through but could not get more than fingertips on Dowrich’s chipped drive. Although Dowrich battled stoically to reach double-figures for the first time in the series, he then spooned a miscued pull to mid-on trying to go after Roland-Jones. West Indies’ lead at that stage was 52 but Holder played with composure to help add 30 more before the break. Joe Root almost struck himself, having come on to bowl the final over before the interval, but England saw another low catch escape Alastair Cook at gully when Holder chanced a drive and got away with it. The fight had not entirely gone out of West Indies but there was little prospect of them defending such a small target once England had cruised to 35 without lost from after seven overs. Cook was the only batsman to fall, dismissed by Devendra Bishoo’s first ball of the match, as Westley and Stoneman assembled the 72 required. Both will hope to be in England’s Ashes party, although if there was anything this unexpectedly rewarding series had taught us, it was not to look too far ahead.

Toss: West Indies won and elected to bat first.
