KXIP vs KKR Live Score

England have effectively admitted that they picked the wrong team for the second Test against West Indies by recalling Toby Roland-Jones for the series decider at Lord's, starting today.

Mark Stoneman [1] failed to build on his maiden Test 50 at Headingley as he foolishly poked at a wide delivery from Kemar Roach and was caught behind by Shane Dowrich.

England will start a Test match on a Saturday next summer for the first time in 63 years.

Law also had a dig at former England captain - and former Essex teammate - Nasser Hussain, who had suggested in a newspaper column after day four at Headingley that the Caribbean side had displayed "mental fatigue" due to the demands of Test cricket.

The first September Test to be held at Lord's was greeted by a cool morning with plenty of low cloud and Joe Root may not have been too despondent at telling his senior quicks they were bowling. Dawid Malan and Stokes had both reached 13 before play was halted due to bad light with England on 46-4 from 19 overs.

England captain Root announced Roland-Jones' inclusion when addressing media on Wednesday.

Earlier, Stokes's figures surpassed his previous Test-best of six for 36 against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2015.

The 35-year-old is only three wickets away from 500 Test dismissals - a feat which just two other seam bowlers have managed to achieve in history - Glenn McGrath and Courtney Walsh.

The Burnley-born England star was left stranded on 499 as Ben Stokes stole the headlines, taking 6-22 to help dismiss the West indies for 123 all out on the opening day of the third test at Lord's.

England's bowlers were made to wait for their first scalp of the afternoon by a disciplined 56-run partnership between Shai Hope (29) and Kieran Powell (39).

West Indies responded brilliantly to chase down 322 in the fourth innings to win at Leeds.

After a 40-minute rain break, Kyle Hope was out for a duck when, trying to withdraw his bat to Anderson, he was well caught by diving wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow.

For England, they are firmly in the run up to the Ashes series now.

After lunch, Anderson pressed hard for the elusive 500th wicket but it would not come and Root took him out of the attack.

Roland-Jones is the only change to the side that suffered a surprise five-wicket defeat by the West Indies in the second Test at Headingley as the tourists levelled the three-match series at 1-1.

That wasn't going to be on this occasion, though, as Root gave Holder his second wicket, Powell hanging on to the chance at first slip.
