    Day in focus - 501 not out for Anderson

    James Anderson took his 500th and 501st Test wickets on another enthralling day at Lord's.

    The third Investec Test between England and the Windies moved on at pace on an extended day at Lord's with James Anderson taking his 501th Test wicket.

    Ben Stokes hit an aggressive 60 to help England build a useful lead of 71, with Kemar Roach the pick of the visitors' attack taking five wickets.

    Anderson took two wickets - including that historic strike - and Broad one as England's bowlers prospered under the lights at Lord's.

    Moment of the morning

    The morning was a frustration with rain never far away and very little action. We were however able to celebrate the careers of the special group of England players to have played 100 Tests.

    Play of the afternoon

    Ben Stokes is having quite a game; his counter attacking 60 contained shots all around the wicket and gave England a chance of a competitive total.

    Stat of the day

    Player of the day

    As well as Ben Stokes batted there was only one man today. James Anderson led the players off under extraordinary skies at the end of play. The Investec Test Series is delicately poised going into what could be it's final day.
