That is LUNCH in the Ageas Bowl.
The West Indies took advantage of full and straight bowling in difficult conditions for the batsmen, as England lost four wickets for 106 runs on Day 2 in Southampton’s Aegis Bowl. England captain Ben Stokes’ decision to bat first was speculated as the top order struggled to cope with the pace and seam movement of Shannon Gabriel (3-38) and Jason Holder (2-24). Stokes was unbeaten on 21 off 62 balls and Jose Butler was 9 not out.

18 years: Joseph completed his over by throwing two dot balls. England 35/1
here is my.. Alzari Joseph started Day 2 for the West Indies
Welcome back! Like you, we here at Timesofindia.com also hope that the gods of rain in Southampton are more compassionate today and that fans across the world get to see a full day of play on the second day of the first Test match between England and the West Indies. A nearly four-month long break forced by the COVID-19 epidemic.
After all anticipation, day one of the three Test matches turned out to be a moist team. If any fan had been allowed, they would have remained in the pavilion for more than 90 minutes because of poor lighting, despite the Egg Bowl being a flood light.
Bad weather allowed just 17.4 overs and the host team closed out a disappointing day of 35/1. England won the toss and opted to bat but soon lost Domaine Sibley for a zero when she missed a Shannon Gabriel delivery that cut back to clip her stumps.
The match is being played in a “bio-safe environment” with daily health checks for everyone in the field.
