Hello and welcome to highlights of Day five of the third Test between England and West Indies at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.

- Result: England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 129 - England won by 269 runs.

- What a moment and what a series for Stuart Broad. He was dropped for the first Test, expressed his disappointment and when came back, he just breezed through the batting line-up. West Indies went downhill from the second Test and started on a wrong note in the series decider. The batsmen lacked application and succumbed under pressure. England, meanwhile, rode on solid contributions from Ben Stokes, Dom Sibley and even the skipper Joe Root coming good in the final Test. So cricket marked a returned after the forced COVID-19 break and it's England who wins the Wisden Trophy and it will remain with them forever, as it's going to be retired after the series. That's all for now and we will bring you more Live action as the weeks unfold. Till then it's goodbye!

WICKET- Stuart Broad strikes and England beats West Indies by 269 runs to win the series 2-1.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 119/9 after 35 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 13, Shannon Gabriel 0) Two wickets for Woakes and this has been superb bowling.

-WICKET - Chris Woakes takes five as he traps Cornwall and what a brilliant spell this has been. Cornwall with the flick again, misses it and the ball thunders into the front pad.

- WICKET - There it is, Woakes picks his fourth and Shane Dowrich departs. The batsman walks back immediately as he was trapped plumb, on the knee roll and England two wickets away from the series win.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 113/7 after 33 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 9, Shane Dowrich 8) Woakes is almost certain of getting his fourth wicket as he is getting some movement and is not hesitating to drop short.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 108/7 after 32 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 5, Shane Dowrich 7) England went for a review for a caught behind but there was no bat involved and Dowrich holds ground.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 107/7 after 31 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 5, Shane Dowrich 5) Dowrich is showing good confidence and plays a nice straight drive.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 101/7 after 30 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 5, Shane Dowrich 1) Just a single from Archer's over and both batsmen are on their toes, expecting the short ball.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 99/7 after 29 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 4, Jason Holder 12) WICKET- That should be the final nail in the coffin. Woakes picks his third wicket and he traps Jason Holder to leave West Indies seven down. Holder goes for a desperate review but the ball, that clipped his pad after Holder missed the flick, was on its way to hit the leg stump. On-field decision stays, England 3 away.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 89/6 after 28 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 4, Jason Holder 2) Archer searching for some swing and the surface should assist some movement after being spiced up by the rain.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 88/6 after 27 overs (Jermaine Blackwood 4, Jason Holder 1) A wicket a single from Woakes over.

- Back Live

- Rain again and the players are off. It's not that heavy but the hover is covering the pitch. Shouldn't be long before play begins. The rain has intensified and the players are back in the dressing room.

WICKET- Run out! You wouldn't believe it! Dom Bess with a direct hit and Roston Chase is gone. Blackhood punches it to the point, hesitated for a single, still went for it and Bess with a brilliant throw ends Chase's stay at the wicket. Six down.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 87/5 after 26 overs (Roston Chase 7, Jermaine Blackwood 4) Just a single from Archer's over and West Indies batsmen have to just occupy the crease. Sounds simple, but it's tough out there against a quality bowling attack.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 86/5 after 25 overs (Roston Chase 7, Jermaine Blackwood 3) Woakes continues to impress with his line and is getting the ball to nip back in after pitching around middle.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 84/5 after 24 overs (Roston Chase 5, Jermaine Blackwood 3) Archer completes his over and England will aim to push hard, given the rain is playing hide and seek. It's bright though, now.

- The players are out in the middle and we are set for play to resume. England hunt for five West Indies wickets.

- Alright we have a resumption on the cards. Play to begin at 06:05 PM IST, which means 10 minutes from now.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 83/5 after 23 overs (Roston Chase 4, Jermaine Blackwood 1) Woakes is bowling a wonderful line and is giving nothing to the batsmen.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 68/3 after 18 overs (Shai Hope 31, Shamarh Brooks 14) A couple of crisp cover drives from Hope. The pitch has spiced up a little owing to the rain and Hope has displayed some lovely strokes, riding on top of the bounce.

- Jofra Archer into the attack

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 60/3 after 17 overs (Shai Hope 23, Shamarh Brooks 14) Six runs from the first over from Chris Woakes and there is rain in the air.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 54/3 after 16 overs (Shai Hope 23, Shamarh Brooks 8) Brooks gets a boundary and the ground staff are hovering near the ropes. It is going to be on and off with the cloud cover above Old Trafford.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 48/3 after 15 overs (Shai Hope 22, Shamarh Brooks 3) Anderson bowls a maiden and after Broad's 500th Test wicket, the body language of the Englishmen has changed. There is an additional spring added to their steps.

 

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 48/3 after 14 overs (Shai Hope 22, Shamarh Brooks 3) Stuart Broad and James Anderson have the same 500th victim - Kraigg Brathwaite.

500 Test wickets for Stuart Broad - WICKET - It was only a matter of time he got to the landmark - one of the modern day greats and the fourth fastest bowler to take 500 Test wickets as Broad traps Brathwaite.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 41/2 after 13 overs (Kraigg Brathwaite 15, Shai Hope 22) Runs are coming from both Brathwaite and Hope and that should encourage West Indies to stay positive.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 35/2 after 12 overs (Kraigg Brathwaite 15, Shai Hope 16) It's sunny and the strong winds have blown away the clouds.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 21/2 after 10 overs (Kraigg Brathwaite 8, Shai Hope 9) Brathwaite finds a boundary with a wonderful drive as West Indies start on positive note.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 16/2 after 9 overs (Kraigg Brathwaite 4, Shai Hope 8) Brathwaite takes a couple of the first ball and then plays five dots, gets beaten by Anderson on one occasion.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 14/2 after 8 overs (Kraigg Brathwaite 2, Shai Hope 8) The sun is out and Stuart Broad warms up nicely. Hope gets a boundary but with the ball moving a bit, Broad might just get his 500th wicket.

- FOUR- Wide and full and Shai Hope slashes hard and the ball races past wide of gully to the boundary. First boundary of Day 5.

- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 10/2 after 7 overs Needs 389 runs (Kraigg Brathwaite 2, Shai Hope 4) Anderson starts with a maiden and all eyes will be on Stuart Broad who is on 499 Test wickets.

Before we get into Day 5 of the third and final ENGvWI Test, here's a recap of everything that didn't happen on day 4

 

Stumps Day 4- England 369 & 226/2 dec; West Indies 197 & 10/2 after 6 overs Needs 389 runs (Kraigg Brathwaite 2, Shai Hope 4)

After taking eight wickets in the match so far, Stuart Broad has frustratingly been left stuck on 499 Test scalps for at least 40 hours thanks to Monday’s washout. He can attain the magical 500th wicket if play resumes today. More on that here - Stuart Broad waits for chance to take 500th Test victim

The weather gods intervened to give a shaky West Indies batting lineup a breather, with a day's play completely washed out. Needing 389 runs to win with eight wickets in hand, Holder & Co. will be relieved to hold fort just for one day, but will have to channel the zen of the likes of Pujara to actually manage a favourable result. AOur correspondents discuss strategies for Day 5 and look at what lies ahead for the incredibly deep English bench.
