Root falls as England stumble to tea

Root falls as England stumble to tea

It was a tame end to a competitive series from West Indies, but their performances in the first two Tests were enough to ensure the series win.

'Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field, ' Root said.

Fast bowler Alzarri Joseph titled the balance in the Windies favour in the third over before the interval when he had Root caught at the wicket for 16, swatting at a wide ball.

Set the improbable target of 485 after Joe Root declared his side's second innings at 361 for five following his dismissal for 122, the home team crashed to 35 for four with the rampant Anderson taking the first three wickets.

"I think you should leave it there".

Asked to elaborate, Root added: "I think it should stay on the field".

Tensions boiled over as Joe Denly and Root frustrated the West Indian bowlers and the latter was heard telling Gabriel: 'Don't use it as an insult - there's nothing wrong with being gay'.

He then described his rival, saying he's "a good guy who plays hard cricket and is proud to be in the position he is".

Stump microphones did not pick up Gabriel's initial remarks, but he was spoken to about his language by the umpires at the time.

He added: "The battle was a good contest".

It was a disappointing end to the series for West Indies, who had an unassailable 2-0 lead going into the match and had dominated England's batsmen.

There were positives for England - off-spinner Moeen bowled tidily and captain Root found form with the bat - but ultimately, it came too late for the series.

Former footballer and current BBC pundit Ian Wright said simply: 'Joe Root.

West Indies vs England 3rd Test will be played at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia from 19:30 IST.

"I've had some frightful dark days with injuries and things like confidence and self-belief", Wood said.

Whether the match referee Jeff Crowe deems the incident worthy of further attention remains to be seen, while West Indies coach Richard Pybus promised to take further action "if it was untoward".

'The more players, fans, clubs and organisations that stand up for equality in sport, the sooner we kick discrimination out and make sport everyone's game.
