NOTTINGHAM: West Indies’ latest top-order collapse left England on the brink of a series-clinching victory in the second Test at Trent Bridge here on Sunday.
The tourists had slumped to 61 for six in their second innings at stumps on the third day.
That gave them a lead of just three runs after England had made a first innings 428 featuring captain Andrew Strauss’s second hundred in as many Tests.
Marlon Samuels (13 not out) and West Indies captain Darren Sammy (nought not out), who both made hundreds in the first innings, were together at the close.
James Anderson removed both West Indies openers in a spell of two wickets for three runs in eight balls while fellow seamer Tim Bresnan followed up with three for nine in 26.
“It’s fantastic,” Bresnan told the BBC. “It puts us in a really good position. We’ve still got work to do.
