England stumble again but take first innings lead of 220

West Indies batsman Sulieman Benn attempts to hook a ball from bowler James Anderson on day three of the first test match between West Indies and England at the Sir Vivian Richard Stadium in St John's, Antigua on April 15, 2015England’s top order tumbled cheaply again but the tourists still worked themselves into a commanding position at 116 for three in their second innings, an overall lead of 220, by stumps on the third day of the first Test against the West Indies at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Wednesday. Jermaine Blackwood’s maiden Test hundred lifted the home side to 295 in their first innings with James Tredwell’s off-spin bringing him the excellent figures of four for 47 off 26 overs and ensuring his side earned a significant first innings lead. Left with the final session to build on an advantage of 104 runs, openers Jonathan Trott and captain Alastair Cook were prised out in double-quick time by Jerome Taylor. First innings centurion Ian Bell was then run out but at 52 for three, Joe Root (32 not out) joined Gary Ballance (44 not out) in resisting the early threat and then profitted against bowlers who quickly ran out of discipline and inspiration.
