Namaste and Welcome to the TimesOfIndia.com live coverage of Day 4 of the first Test between hosts England and the West Indies at the Aegis Bowl in Southampton, South Africa.
Match so far …
Shane Dowrich (61) and opener Craig Brathwaite (65) put on a brilliant performance for the West Indies, ending their first innings on Day 3 for 318, scoring a solid 114-run lead.
England stooped to 15 for no loss at stumps with Dom Sibley (5 *) and Rory Burns (10 *) remaining at the crease for a 10-over period.
But still trailing by another 99 runs, England found themselves in a bit of trouble against the Windies bowlers, who are in top form.
The relatively weak England top order (which, in Root’s absence) would still look to fire in the bowlers’ favor or at least have a difficult session.
On the other hand, the West Indies will rely on first-innings hero Jason Holder and other pacers and aim for early wickets to strengthen their grip on the match.
