Jason Holder holds the distinction of the becoming the youngest to captain a Windies side at the age of 23 years and 72 days, as the West Indies board sacked Dwayne Bravo four years ago.

Watch day three of the third Test between Windies and England, in St Lucia, live on Sky Sports Cricket from 1.30pm on Monday.

A fiery opening burst on the spicy pitch at Gros Islet from James Anderson and Stuart Broad proved fruitless with Brathwaite and Campbell sharing their fourth opening stand of 50 in the series.

Broad tracked back in an attempt to make the catch, but misjudged it horribly as it sailed over his shoulder.

Fans and pundits couldn't believe what they'd seen. Jennings and pace bowler Mark Wood came in for Ben Foakes and Sam Curran.

Although he did not complete the hat-trick, Wood struck again soon afterwards when Shimron Hetmyer (eight) edged to first slip, giving Wood the remarkable figures of 3-12 at tea.

Buttler was dropped before he had scored off fast bowler Shannon Gabriel in the second session while Stokes was reprieved on 52 late in the day off an Alzarri Joseph no-ball after falling to a return catch.

A 25-minute rain break after just five overs sent the players from the field with England on five without loss, and West Indies made the breakthrough in the ninth over - about 20 minutes after the resumption - when Paul got left-hander Keaton Jennings to edge a drive to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich for eight, off the first ball of his opening spell.

Campbell's wicket was particularly important because he had taken the long handle to the England attack and was threatening to compile a big score quickly.

Yet while he lacks the pace of Gabriel, Joseph and Kemar Roach, Keemo Paul was the star with the ball for the hosts on day one, making an immediate impact with a wicket with the first ball he bowled in the morning.

The second new ball, allied with good bowling and sharp fielding, helped the home side restrict England's total to a smaller one than might have been expected.

Butler did not add to his overnight score, and the dismissal ended a 125-run partnership with Ben Stokes that had allowed England to climb out of an early hole.

Jennings's Test career appeared on hold after he was dropped following the ten-wicket defeat in the first match in Antigua but he is now back with Jonny Bairstow taking the gloves.

West Indies have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

Bowling: Roach 19-9-34-0, Gabriel 19-5-44-1, Joseph 15-2-56-1, Paul 16-7-42-2, Chase 10-0-40-0, Brathwaite 4-0-5-0.
