Ben Stokes made the most of a remarkable second chance as his unbeaten 62 inspired England's fightback on day one of the third and final Test against West Indies in St Lucia on Saturday.

Root, 28, revealed that West Indies bowler Shannon Gabriel said something he "might regret" on the field on Monday.

"Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field", Media reports quoted Root as saying at the close of play.

After play, Root refused to divulge what was said, but stump microphones overheard him telling Gabriel "there's nothing wrong with being gay".

Gabriel's part of the conversation did not seem to be audible but Press Association Sport understands the paceman was spoken to by at least one of the on-field umpires, Kumar Dharmasena and Rod Tucker, about his language.

"You can see that in the way he approaches the game and that's how I feel about it as well".

"I think you should leave it there".

"I could have seen the amusing side of it but I also said to myself not to look at it as a big opportunity, just try to let it go and make sure I was not out at the end of the day".

Gordon Banks, England World Cup-winning goalkeeper, dies at 81
Gordon Banks was one of England's heroes in the 1966 World Cup , helping his country to their first ever world title. Banks was named FWA Footballer of the Year in 1972, and was named FIFA Goalkeeper of the Year on six occasions.

Root received widespread support following the incident and Hussain was among those to praise the Yorkshireman's actions.

West Indies interim coach Richard Pybus responded: 'Nothing has been reported to me but if a comment was made we'll review it and if it was untoward we'll be addressing it'.

Root was unbeaten on a compact 111 - his first significant score of an otherwise wretched tour - while Joe Denly carved out his maiden Test half-century with 69.

"It feels fantastic. All the hard times I've had with injury, and the self-doubt, today I feel like an England", said Wood.

Between those milestones, it looked as though their union had been ended by Joseph's superb catch in his follow-through, only for Stokes to be called back to the middle - a welcome rub of the green for an England side that has been a distant second-best in this series. "It's always a proper tussle out there".

"The series has been played in exceptional spirit, I wouldn't want to pre-empt anything".

"Shannon is a proper old-school fast bowler, I think we need to find out if there is anything behind the rumors and then we'll address it".

West Indies laboured in vain after the break, managing just a single wicket as England piled on the pressure to bat themselves into a near impregnable position, courtesy of two key stands anchored by Root.
