Rain continued to disrupt proceedings on the second day of this series decider. So the whole day’s play didn’t become possible. In their second innings, West Indies had to sacrifice three wickets to compensate the first-innings deficit. Kieran Powell scored 45 runs before falling to Anderson’s ball. Hid departure was a big blow to the team as he seemed to be doing well.

England’s advantage had been built during the afternoon on a bristling half-century from Stokes, facing down a five-wicket haul from Kemar Roach, before two lower-order partnerships added to West Indies’ frustrations. They were again left to rue mistakes in the field, as Stokes was dropped on 24. He then combined with Jonny Bairstow to lift England towards parity, although when Stokes fell, Shannon Gabriel hitting his stumps for the second time in an over (the first coming off a no-ball), England were only five runs ahead.
