Bdos: Scrappy England not giving up

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Openers Michael Vaughan and Marcus Trescothick shared an unbroken stand of 145 as England rebounded from being forced to follow on by the West Indies on day four of the fourth cricket Test yesterday.

Earlier, Andrew Flintoff’s gritty, unbeaten 102 was the main resistance as the West Indies pacers floored England for 285 in the first innings at the Antigua Recreation Ground.

However, the tourists, facing a deficit of 466, responded by cruising to 145 without loss in the second innings at stumps, with captain Vaughan and Trescothick posting their first half-centuries of the series. England trails by 321 runs with ten wickets and 90 overs to survive for a draw today.
