Jason Holder skipper of West Indies got the career-best test bowling figures with 6 wickets as West Indies dominated the 2nd day of the 1st test against England.
All-rounder Jason Holder making full use of the gloomy conditions, took 6 for 42 and fast bowler Shannon Gabriel claimed 4 wickets as England were dismissed for 204.
Ben Stokes, leading England for the first time in the absence of Joe Root, top-scored with 43 but might be regretting his decision to bat first after having won the toss.
West Indies showed great discipline and rode their luck at times in reply as they reached 57-1 to put themselves in a decent position going into the 3rd day at the Ageas Bowl when an improving weather forecast should make batting easier.
James Anderson dismissed West Indies opener John Campbell for 28 but Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope survived some express pace from Mark Wood before bad light ended the day’s play.
