Joe Denly and Rory Burns held fort after Burns” opening partner Dom Sibley fell early in the innings to Shannon Gabriel.

Only 82 minutes of play was possible, all of it in the second session of the day in which 17.4 overs were bowled. The toss was conducted after Lunch in which England”s stand-in skipper Ben Stokes chose to bat first. Both teams took a knee before the start of the proceedings to honour the Black Lives Matter movement.

The return however didn”t last long as rain returned after seven balls and the players ran back into the pavilion. The action resumed almost 50 minutes later and this time, Burns and Denly saw out the spells of Roach and Gabriel.

West Indies captain Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph replaced them and after the fourth ball of the 18th over bowled by the latter, umpires halted play and led the players off the pitch once again. Tea was called for soon after. Rains then lashed the ground and just over an hour later umpires called stumps.
