West Indies 168 all out, England enforce follow-on

Birmingham, England: West Indies were made to follow-on after being dismissed for just 168 in reply to England's first innings 514 for eight declared, a deficit of 346 runs, on the third day at Edgbaston on Saturday.

James Anderson, England’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker, led the attack in the inaugural day/night Test in Britain with figures of three for 34 in 15 overs and ran out Kieran Powell as well.

Jermaine Blackwood was 79 not out — the only score in the innings above 25.

West Indies, who lost seven wickets for 89 runs in 23 overs during Saturday's first session, batted for just 47 overs in total.

Their final score was 75 runs fewer than the 243 made off his own bat by Alastair Cook in England’s first innings.

This fixture, the 50th Test staged at Edgbaston, is the first of a three-Test series.
