Over 10.3: Back of a length delivery by Holder that forced Root to play and he gets completely beaten. It was close to the outside nick
Over 10: Roach concedes just two singles in the over. England 16/1
Over 9: Second successive maiden by Holder, he has yet to concede a run. England 14/1
Gabriel walks off the field midway through the over. He doesn’t deliver the ball after getting to his delivery stride. He holds his calf. Roach will bowl remaining four deliveries to finish the over
Over 7: Holder starts off with a maiden. Burns and Root are having a tough time negotiating West Indies bowlers. England 11/1
Bowling change: Skipper Jason Holder comes into the attack
Over 6: Welcome runs for England as they get 4 byes. It was wide down the leg side by Gabriel and keeper Shane Dowrich could not get to the ball. England 11/1
Over 5: Kemar Roach bowls his first maiden over of the match. England 7/1
Over 3.5: Big appeal by Gabriel for LWB but umpire says NO, England skipper Joe Root survives. West Indies go for a review and it shows the impact was outside the line of off-stump. Windies waste their review early in the match. England6/1
Over 1.6: Burns collects a double through extra cover as Gabriel gives away just two runs in his first over
Shannon Gabriel shares the new ball
Over 0.6: OUT! Roach strikes in the first over to give England early blow. The West Indies pacer traps Dom Sibley in front for duck. Struck on the pads, Sibley plays all across it and the ball was going on to hit the wickets, the replays confirm the same too. England 1/1 in 1 over
0.1 Over: Burns gets off the mark on the first delivery of the match with a single.
* Rory Burns and Dom Sibley are at the crease to open England innings
* Kemar Roach to open the proceedings for the West Indies

Welcome once again to Timesofindia.com’s coverage of West Indies’ ‘biosecure’ tour of England, which will today enter the final stage of its red-ball leg with the third and deciding Test at Manchester.
England won the second Test at the same venue, Old Trafford, after a dramatic Windies’ collapse to level the series 1-1-.
The lead-up to the final Test beginning today was marred by the online racial abuse faced by pacer Jofra Archer, who was dropped for the second Test for breaching the biosecure bubble. But things fell back in place in time for Archer and hosts England, who will have the services of the express bowler available for the decider.
