Gabriel, 30, will miss nearly the entire of the five-match One-Day International series against the English, which bowls off on Wednesday in Barbados.

The West Indies accepted Gabriel's punishment but have told the ICC they expect it to be consistent in applying its punishment, especially with the Ashes looming which has been tarnished in recent years by unacceptable levels of personal abuse.

The England captain added 11 to his overnight total before falling to Shannon Gabriel, while Ben Stokes finished unbeaten on 48. They belted 36 runs at a run-a-minute until the skipper miscued a low full-toss from Shannon Gabriel and Hetmyer held the catch diving forward at midwicket to prompt the declaration.

Veteran seamer Jimmy Anderson ripped through the West Indies top order to leave the hosts staring at defeat, after England set them a mammoth target on the penultimate day of the third and final Test here Tuesday.

Stokes moved on to 79 - his best Test score since he was involved in an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in 2017 that resulted in a suspension - but when his mistimed hook off Kemar Roach was brilliantly taken by a diving Shane Dowrich, England unravelled. Paul blocked one ball and gave the strike to Chase, who achieved the hundred by cutting Joe Denly for his 12th boundary.

While Gabriel's comments weren't picked up by microphones, Root's response was.

Not everyone left impressed by J-Lo’s Motown show
Without a doubt, one of the most-talked about moments from the 2019 Grammys was Jennifer Lopez's tribute to the era of Motown . It was awful , the antithesis to everything Motown ever represented.

The West Indies was sunk by lunchtime.

Moeen struck again the very next ball as he trapped Campbell lbw for 41.

From the moment Kraigg Brathwaite, the stand-in captain, played a bluff by putting England in to bat on the first morning, the direction of travel was clear.

Wood provided it when Hope, on 14, was caught on the back foot to a delivery which did not make the height that he anticipated and Stuart Broad pedalling back at cover-point held the catch with both hands over his head.

The same is probably not true of Jennings, who clung on for 99 balls and 23 runs but never looked at ease and was ultimately bowled in ugly, slightly unfortunate fashion after Alzarri Joseph's delivery took a detour off his thigh paid.

The five-match one-day worldwide series starts next week.
