West Indies 172 all out

England look favourites to take the fourth test after Craig White and Darren Gough tore through the West Indian batsmen on the first day of the Headingley match.

The only respectable resistance came from young Windies prospect Ramnaresh Sarwan, who hit 59 not out as the Windeis were all out for 172.

The Windies crashed from 50 for one to 60 for five in a half-an-hour with White claiming three for six in 17 balls, including the prized wicket of Brian Lara, who scored four.

White bowled his test career-best of five for 57.

Sarwan's stand of 68 with Ridley Jacobs (35) was a West Indies' record at Headingley.
