So, post-Pandemic era has begun in an exhilarating manner with West Indies taking the lead in this 3-match series. They will be proud of their performance and will go into the second match with confidence. England, on the other hand, need some inspiration from somewhere. They were disappointing throughout and did not want to start the home season in such a manner. Now the teams move to Manchester for the second and third Tests. Join us for the second Test on 16th July at 1100 Local (1000 GMT) for another bout of Test match cricket. Until then, stay safe and take care.

For his fantastic bowling performance, Shannon Gabriel is named the Man of the Match. Gabriel says that he never had any doubt about his fitness as he knew he would play if he proved his fitness. On his body, he says it is still a bit stiff but has a couple of days to recover before the next Test. On the pace attack, he says that it depends on the work load and says the guys are pretty fit and are willing to play all the games. Tells before coming here, the guys were confident after playing them in the Caribbean and they believed themselves.

West Indies skipper, Jason Holder says that it is one of the best victories they have had as a group. Credits everyone as this has been a long tour and everyone has put in the efforts. Says it has been a long layoff and says they had a lot of time to prepare but the mental side of the game was a challenge. On the bowlers, Jason says that it is just the will power as they knew what was at stake. Says getting wickets was important as they knew if they got it, they had a chance to win this game. On Jermaine Blackwood, he says it was an outstanding innings and he was disappointed to see him get out. Tells that the last time he came in as a concussion substitute, he put in the effort and says he always shows a fight and tells today was his big moment.

Ben Stokes, the England skipper, says that that they are more used to playing in front of huge crowds and they are happy that they have gotten back to cricket. Says that they are looking forward to playing in Manchester. Adds that this was a hard fought Test match and says that they did not have enough runs on the board. Stokes says that they have to believe that 200 is enough but if they do not believe that, they are already losing. Further says that they got themselves into some strong positions but did not make full use of it. Goes on to say that they need to learn to add more runs in the first innings. Adds that they are fortunate to leave someone like Broad and states that Broad is a very passionate cricketer. States that pressure shows itself in different ways and they will take positives and learnings from this game. Adds that it will be interesting to see how everyone pulls up for the next Test. Further says that he enjoyed captaincy but it is Root's team and he will be happy to give the captaincy back to him.

Stay tuned for the Presentation ceremony!

Many questioned Stokes at the time of the toss as he chose to bat first in overcast conditions and that move backfired as they were bowled out for just 204 courtesy some exceptional bowling from Holder and Gabriel. The former took a 6-fer while Gabriel finished with 4. West Indies were good with the bat with Brathwaite, Dowrich and Chase scoring valuable runs to get a lead of 114. Stokes was the pick of the bowlers with a 4-fer while Anderson was good. That did not look enough, as at one stage, England were cruising when Stokes and Crawley were batting but Gabriel's 5-fer pulled things back. With 200 required, Blackwood became a thorn in the flesh as the visitors won the game with 4 wickets in hand.

England, on the other hand, would not be happy with their performance. Jofra Archer bowled brilliantly throughout this morning but after he gave momentum to the home side, the other bowlers faltered in the afternoon. West Indies scored runs with ease and also got plenty of reprieves. Anderson was good as well but failed to provide the required breakthrough. Stokes bowled exceptionally towards the end but it was a little too late. England need to pull their socks up for the second Test if they want to make a comeback. They have a lot of thinking to do with the make-up of the side. The biggest one being who will go out when Joe Root comes back? Or will Stuart Broad return in the second Test?

What a way to resume international cricket! An interesting match was expected and that is what we got after a long hiatus. Brilliant from the West Indies as they have done it. They have taken a 1-0 lead in this 3-match series with an all-round performance. They were terrific with the ball and were good with the bat as well. Talking about this innings, they were down and out chasing 200 as they lost 3 wickets in no time but Blackwood stood tall and along with Chase and Dowrich, helped his side cross the target with ease. Jermaine scored runs at a brisk pace and was stupendous before he was dismissed for 95. The credit has to go to Chase and Dowrich as well for sticking around and not throwing their wickets away.

64.2

That is it! West Indies win the game by 4 wickets and they have started the series in an emphatic fashion. Big win for Jason Holder and West Indies. Fantastic performance from the tourists.

Outside off, Campbell won't disturb that.

62.6

Length delivery on off, Holder is happy to defend it towards cover. 194/6

60.4

OUT! Caught! Stokes gets another one and is the English miracle still possible? Well there is a glimmer of hope for that to happen now. End of a fantastic innings from Blackwood. He will be gutted not to see off the game and also miss out on a well-deserved century. Stokes bowls a fuller delivery outside off, Jermaine looks to go over mid off. He does not get the desired elevation and ends up hitting it to the right of mid off. Anderson there swiftly moves on that side and takes a simple catch. Blackwood cannot finish it off but what a fantastic knock he has played. Will he be furious to miss out the chance to take his side over the line by himself? Yes absolutely but that does not take away anything from his stupendous knock. Take a bow!

Full delivery on off, Blackwood drives it towards mid off.

52.5

OUT! CAUGHT! This time there is no doubt about the no ball and Dowrich's valuable innings comes to an end. He got lucky in the previous ball but not this time. Stokes is glad and so is the rest of the England team. They still have a chance to win this game. Length ball on off, moving away, Dowrich looks to defend but it takes the outside edge and goes to the right of the keeper. Buttler dives to that side and manages to take the catch. Is it a little too late for the hosts though?

52.5

OUT! CAUGHT! Is it? No, it is a NO BALL as Stokes has overstepped. England have not taken their chances and this is another of those instance. This would have got them back in the game but it was not to be. Good length ball from Stokes outside off, Dowrich goes for the drive but it takes the outside edge and goes towards first slip where Dom Sibley makes no mistake.

... Day 5, Session 3 ...

England, after having a brilliant first session, looked clueless in the second. No other bowler apart from Jofra Archer looked penetrative enough and have given easy runs away. Their fielding was poor and missed many chances to get Blackwood and Chase out. They are not out of the game yet as one wicket could still turn things around. But the reality for the hosts is that it looks highly improbable that they will win from this position. Can England rise from the ashes and win the game from the claws of defeat? Join us at 1615 Local (1515 GMT) for the final session of the game to find out.

A session which has belonged to the West Indies. They came in to bat after Lunch after being in trouble in the first session but Blackwood and Chase steadied things up. Blackwood in particular has been terrific and has looked confident as ever. West Indies need just 57 runs and it is likely that they will take the lead in this series with some batting still left. Chase fell to a peach of a delivery from Archer but since then, Dowrich and Blackwood have made things easy for the visitors. They go as favourites into Tea as they scored at a quick pace as well, scoring 108 runs in the 30 overs bowled.

OUT! CAUGHT! That is a nasty delivery! England needed this wicket desperately as this partnership was taking the game away from them. What an excellent piece of bowling from Jofra Archer! He has been the best bowler so far in this innings. Jofra bends his back and bowls the effort ball and makes the ball shoot up off the surface. It is a well directed one as well. Chase looks to defend but the awkward height and the pace beats him and the ball kisses his thumb before lobbing off his shoulder to the keeper. Buttler jogs forward and takes a simple catch. Brilliant from Archer. This is why he is so highly rated. Nothing is happening off the surface but he has made it happen. West Indies still on top of this chase but can England make this opening count and make a comeback?

It wouldn't have mattered as Stokes had overstepped. The pair of Chase and Blackwood are slowly taking their side closer to victory and in the process are also enjoying some luck.

FOUR! That was really well played! Not a good start from Jofra Archer to this spell.

... Day 5, Session 2 ...

West Indies, on the other hand, would have expected to bat better but they did not expect what was coming. Campbell going off did not help matters at all and Archer was over them in a flash. They have lost three wickets in no time and are playing the catch-up game. The tourists will hope that Chase and the rest fight and take them over the line. With the pitch deteriorating, it looks highly difficult but anything can happen in cricket. Will West Indies fight back or will England get closer to victory? Join us at 1340 Local (1240 GMT) to find out.

What a session for England! After they were bowled out with a lead of 199, their bowlers have come out all guns blazing and are not giving anything easy to the visitors. Though Anderson looked a bit off colour, Archer and Wood have been brilliant. Archer started it all, sending Brathwaite back to the pavilion before sending Brooks back with a peach of a delivery. Wood too joined the party as he picked up the wicket of Shai Hope. They are looking on top at the moment and are favourites to win this game from here.

Wood delivers a good length ball on off, nipping in sharply, Hope looks to defend but the ball sneaks in between his bat and pad, going onto hit the stumps. The England players are excited and rightly so. Both Wood and Archer were off colour in the first innings but they have been right on the money so far in the second. West Indies still need 173 runs.

Roston Chase is the new batsman in.

7.3

OUT! LBW! Plumb LBW from Archer and the Barbados-born England international has given his side the start they were looking for. Archer steams a full delivery pitching around off and it comes in as well. Brooks looks to play it towards mid on but the pace and movement is too good for him. Brooks misses and the ball hits him flush in front. Archer appeals and at the same time starts celebrating as he knows he has his man and the umpire raises his finger. Brooks does not even bother to take it upstairs. Good decision that as the Ball Tracker later on shows that the ball was going to hit the middle stump. This has been an awful start from the West Indies. They are clearly on the back foot here.

OUT! DRAGGED ON! West Indies lost Campbell due to an injury and now have lost Brathwaite very early on in the innings. Archer has been brilliant this morning and he has been rewarded. England needed to take early wickets and they have started in the right direction. Archer dishes out a back of a length ball on off, Brathwaite looks to defend but it takes the inside edge and goes onto hit the stumps. Kraigg walks back disappointed.
