England are closing in on victory in the third Test against West Indies after the tourists slumped to 153-6 by lunch on the third day at Lord's.

West Indies had started the day on 93-3, a lead of 22 runs, but lost wickets at regular intervals on Saturday morning.

Roston Chase was the first player to dismissed with the fourth delivery of the day when he edged Jimmy Anderson to wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow after making just three runs.

West Indies were 100-5 when the same partnership did for Jermain Blackwood, who was out for five.

Only another 23 runs had been added when the sixth wicket went down, Shane Dowrich playing a terrible pull shot to a short Toby Roland-Jones delivery and being caught by Stuart Broad for 14.

Shai Hope was still there at lunch though, unbeaten on 60, while Jason Holder was eight not out, but the tourists only lead by 82 runs with four wickets left.

England areĀ 2.00 to win the third Test and clinch the series 2-1 while a West Indies victory is available at 2.00.
