Watch Live 1st Test: England v West Indies at Lord’s, May 6-10, 2009 Day 2

At the start of the day when England tip-toed to 88 for 1 at lunch on a very slow pitch. But Fidel’s three wickets really fired things up, before Bopara played an absolute blinder with his second hundred and his first at No.3. England will be over the moon with him. But England should not be so happily placed: West Indies dropped catch after dolly after chance, and their fielding was occasionally a shambles, so England can count themselves very lucky that they weren’t skittled for 200. Bopara, of course, remains not out and his is the vital wicket tomorrow morning.
