On an enthralling day which saw 18 wickets falling, the third and final Test match between England and the West Indies is hanging in the balance at the end of play on the second day.

After being dismissed for 257 in their first innings, England bounced back to dismiss the home side for a paltry 189, with fast bowler James Anderson snaring six wickets. The only resistance came from Jermaine Blackwood, who scored an entertaining 85.

But despite a handy first innings lead of 68, England found themselves in deep trouble in the final session, limping to 39 for five – an overall lead of just 107 runs.
