    James Anderson is in the 500 Club and the deciding Test between England and West Indies is perfectly poised. Oh, and it's Friday night. What a time to be alive.

    Bye for now.

    Still, there's only one story in town...

  3. Post update

    Stuart Broad gave it some humpty too...

  4. Post update

    Yep, the day will be remembered for James Anderson's 500th Test wicket, but there's still a series to be won.

    If England complete the job, they will probably look back on the runs scored by Ben Stokes...

  5. Post update

    More from Anderson: "I'm just trying to stay fit and on the field. I'm loving playing cricket at the moment. I feel fit. If I keep going for another couple of years I might get near to Glenn McGrath."

    It's on a knife edge. If you ask me who will win this game, I'd say England. We go into day three with England just favourites - they've got their noses in front.

    It's games like this when you look for a player to put their hand up. If someone gets a hundred for West Indies and if they can get England to chase about 160, it's going to be tough for them. Conditions may get a little easier for the batsmen but the bowlers will continue to dominate.

  7. Post update

    More from James Anderson on Sky Sports: "I tasted international cricket early on and I knew that was what I wanted to do.

    "There were dark times. I got injured and left out, but that made me more determined to improve. I used to be able to bowl fast.

    "The spotlight doesn't sit comfortably. I just love playing cricket. It's been my biggest passion since I was a kid."

    England have lost both reviews - Joe Root panicked. They weren't howlers of decisions, but I think England will rue that. West Indies are quietly getting themselves in a position...

  9. Post update

    James Anderson, who took his 500th Test wicket today: "It feels good. It's a bit surreal. I can't believe I have this many wickets or I have played this much cricket. I'm a bit relieved to have it out of the way.

    "Ideally I'd have done it yesterday but, from the team's point of view, we bowled really well.

    "The wicket today nipped back down the slope. It's a great place to bowl.

    "I got my first wicket here and now I have my 500th. My family and friends were in the crowd."

    As you have probably guessed, Michael Vaughan is reviewing the day on Test Match Special - you can listen now or catch up later with the podcast. It's been an epic. It seems a long time ago that Dawid Malan nicked off this morning.

    It's very tricky for all the batsmen. Kieron Powell looked solid. Shai Hope has proven he is a wonderful talent. Ben Stokes is a level above most of the players.

    It's always good to see a grumpy James Anderson. He was forced on to the pitch because of the slope. The umpire was spot on. We have seen a grumpy Anderson often enough and we shall see it tomorrow.

    A lead of 200 would be a challenge for England. If England bowl well they create chances, catch them and they win the match and the series.

    Another absorbing day - a great day. It's finished like a day-night Test with the players trudging off at 7.30.

    West Indies have done very well. Another box ticked by Shai Hope - he weathered the storm - but well played England as well, getting the lead when that looked improbable. I can't wait to be back here tomorrow - anything can happen.

  14. Post update

    James Anderson lead the players from the field, with Joe Root still in discussion with Marais Erasmus. I wonder if we'll hear more about this rumpus later tonight.

    If I'm West Indies, I'm thinking, 'Well done boys. We've got seven wickets left. Let's go again tomorrow.'

  16. Close of play

    WI 93-3

    England crowd Roston Chase. Slips, leg slip and short leg, but the tall right-hander repels Stuart Broad with a straight bat. Under the most incredible sky of purple-red, the day ends with the Test in the balance. West Indies are 22-3 in a one-innings match. England slightly on top? Maybe, but they probably won't want to chase any more than 150.

    Ryan Knight: Why isn't this being called a day-night Test?

  18. WI 93-3

    Lead by 22

    Extra bounce from Anderson and, sure enough, Hope is doing his best to eat up some time. It probably won't be enough, though. The umpires look at each other and decide we can have one more. To be fair, if they can play in this light, they might as well keep going until about 9pm.

  19. I missed Jimmy's 500th wicket because...


    TJCainDentalCeramics: I missed Jimmy's 500th wicket because my sausage casserole needed stirring. Sorry, Jimmy.

  20. WI 93-3

    Anderson has swapped ends. Good call. If I was Shai Hope, I'd be doing my best to make sure this is the last over of the day. Tie the shoelace, move the sightscreen, change the gloves...
