When bad light ended play, England were 259 for three - a lead of 16 runs after they needed just yesterday's first ball to dismiss the West Indies for their overnight score of 243.
Strauss was 121 not out and Ian Bell five not out at stumps. But with the West Indies just two deliveries into the new ball, England's position is far from assured in this first of a three-Test series.
