Watch ENG vs WI highlights of the third day of 3rd Test played today on 9-9-2017. W Indies vs England cricket highlights. Lord’s basked in sunshine on a cool September afternoon as England eased to a nine-wicket win in the third Investec Test, giving their series victory an aspect of comfort it scarcely deserved. James Anderson’s career-best seven-wicket haul, which included his 500th in Tests, provided the excuse for champagne corks to pop early – though little excuse is needed here – and there was time to drink in the last of the Test summer, as Mark Stoneman and Tom Westley knocked off the runs required.

West Indies’ mantra since their defeat at Edgbaston had been about showing “fight” and England finished the series with a few more bruises than they might have expected. The resistance was again embodied by Shai Hope, whose half-century at least gave them something to bowl at, but England had in Anderson a man who thrives on a battle as well. He began West Indies’ decline in the second innings with wicket No. 500 and finished them off with No. 506 on the third afternoon, leaving England with a target of 107 to secure a second victory for Joe Root in two series as captain.

It may not have provided West Indies with a winning score but it served further notice of Hope’s burgeoning talent.
