West Indies skipper Kraigg Brathwaite got to the fifty landmark with a neat tickle off his pads in the gap between short leg and leg slip, just waiting for the off-break to turn as he timed it well in the tiniest of gaps. His half-century has proved to be the binding glue of West Indies' second innings after England declared to set the hosts a target of 282 to win. It has been a typically patient knock from the captain, consisting of just four boundaries. Joshua Da Silva has provided able support from the other end as the partnership grows to 34 off 81 balls.
