BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom (AFP) – West Indies were 76 for four after being made to follow-on, still requiring a further 270 runs to make England bat again, at tea on the third day of the inaugural day/night Test in Britain at Edgbaston on Saturday.

Roston Chase was nine not out, after Kraigg Brathwaite was lbw on review to Moeen Ali off what became the last ball of the session.

Earlier the West Indies were dismissed for 168 in reply to England's first innings 514 for eight declared, a deficit of 346 runs.

James Anderson led England's attack with three wickets for 34 runs in an innings that lasted a mere 47 overs.

Jermaine Blackwood's 79 not out constituted nearly 50 percent of West Indies' total and was the only contribution above 25 in an innings featuring just five double-figure scores.

This fixture, the 50th Test staged at Edgbaston, is the first of a three-match series.
