ST JOHN'S: A century from Paul Collingwood led England to an imposing 566 for nine declared on the second day of the third test against West Indies in Antigua, as the tourists made their first test mauling a distant memory.
Just nine days after being bowled out for 51 at Sabina Park and suffering an innings defeat, England amassed over 10 times that total with five batsmen scoring half centuries or more.
Collingwood was the constant presence throughout a sun-blessed day at the Antigua Recreation Ground, as his 113,his eighth test century, provided a perfect complement to skipper Andrew Strauss's 169 on Sunday.
A great day for England ended with the added bonus of the wicket of West Indies captain and batting threat Chris Gayle, who drove Steve Harmison to James Anderson at mid-off to depart on 30.
West Indies ended the day on 55 for one trailing by 511runs.
