The fourth day of the 1st Test match between England & West Indies has started very well. England’s solid opening bowling attack by Rory Burns & Dom Sibley helped the hosts to limit the visitors runs at just 35 as they reached 79/1 at lunch on Day 4.
The duo batted cautiously without taking much risk has dominated the morning session as they kept the Windies bowlers at bay for the majority of the first session on day 4 in Southampton on Saturday. The duo batted cautiously without taking any risks & added 72 runs for the opening wicket. The only loss for the hosts came when Burns, at last, lost his patience & threw his wicket just a few overs before the lunch & handed West Indies with their first breakthrough wicket. He was just eight runs away from his half-century. West Indies off-spinner Roston Chase tasted the only success with his team struggling for the majority of the session.
