Stuart Broad hit a counter-attacking 62 to help England score 369 all out against the West Indies in the series-deciding third Test at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday.

Resuming on 258-4, England lost a wicket in four consecutive overs to collapse to 280/8, with Ollie Pope failing to add to his overnight score of 91 on Day 2.

The collapse brought Broad to the middle and the left-hander hit the Windies bowlers to all parts of Old Trafford, reaching his half-century in 33 balls — putting him tied for third place in the all-time list of England's fastest test fifties.

Broad's 45-ball innings ended when he holed out in the deep off an ambitious swept volley, but by then he had frustrated the visitors and put England back in charge of a series currently poised at 1-1.

His potentially game-changing ninth-wicket partnership with Dom Bess was worth 76 runs, with Broad hitting nine fours and a six.

Bess was left stranded on 18 after Anderson was the last man out for 11. England added 111 runs in the session.

Earlier, Pope was dropped at slip off Shannon Gabriel before the same paceman got one through the gate his very next over.

Chris Woakes (1) then slashed at a wide ball onto his stumps to give fast bowler Kemar Roach his 200th test wicket.

Jos Buttler, who resumed on 56, was out for 67 when he edged Gabriel to Jason Holder at second slip and the West Indies captain also pouched a catch to remove Jofra Archer (3) off the bowling of Roach.

Roach had team-best figures of 4-72.

The Windies, who won the first test in Southampton before losing the second match in Manchester, are looking to capture a test series in England for the first time since 1988.
