West Indies two wickets down at tea

West Indies reach tea on day two of the first Test match on 84-2 as they reply to England's earlier total of 399.

James Anderson has moved nearer to becoming England's leading wicket-taker by removing West Indies opener Devon Smith during the afternoon session of day two of the first Test match in Antigua.

The 32-year-old, who is also competing in his 100th Test match, had Smith caught behind for 11 to move three wickets away from overtaking Sir Ian Botham's record of 383 dismissals.

Chris Jordan struck soon afterwards to take the wicket of Darren Bravo for 10 but thanks to Kraigg Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels, the home side recovered to 84-2 at tea.

England had earlier been bowled all out for 399 after losing their last five wickets for 48 runs.
