HIGHLIGHTS England vs West Indies, 1st Test, Day 1: The long wait was finally over. But it lasted only 17.4 overs as rain dampened the opening day f the Southampton Test. After three hours of rain, the toss happened. England won the toss and opted to bat. And Test cricket made a remarkable return as Windies pacer Shannon Gabriel outfoxed England opener, Dominic Sibley, in just the 10th ball of the game. But impertinent rain continued to dominate most parts of the afternoon amid which Rory Burns and Joe Denly looked to rebuild. Rain eventually forced the umpires to declare stumps as England ended the opening day with 35 for one.
