The England cricket captain Joe Root has been widely hailed for his response to alleged homophobic abuse after retorting that "there is nothing wrong with being gay".

The microphone didn't mange to pick up what Gabriel had said but he was then warned by the umpire for his language following the clash.

"Sometimes things are said on the field but they should stay on the field", Root subsequently told BBC.

"I don't know who said what to whom...but boy do I applaud Joe Root's reaction here", Hussain wrote on Twitter.

"It's Test cricket. He's an emotional guy trying to do everything he can to win a Test match".

What did Joe Root say to Shannon Gabriel?

Veteran seamer Jimmy Anderson ripped through the West Indies top order to leave the hosts staring at defeat, after England set them a mammoth target on the penultimate day of the third and final Test here Tuesday.

A 25-minute rain break after just five overs sent the players from the field with England on five without loss, and West Indies made the breakthrough in the ninth over - about 20 minutes after the resumption - when Paul got left-hander Keaton Jennings to edge a drive to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich for eight, off the first ball of his opening spell.

The same is probably not true of Jennings, who clung on for 99 balls and 23 runs but never looked at ease and was ultimately bowled in ugly, slightly unfortunate fashion after Alzarri Joseph's delivery took a detour off his thigh paid.

He added: "The battle was a good contest". "I think they can sometimes be caught in the moment and not always say what you want to say or think you're saying".

Brexit: More votes promised as Labour says May running down the clock
Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel says the U.K.is a "disunited kingdom" where pro-Brexit politicians lack ideas and courage. MPs may not be given a vote on a revised version of Theresa May's Brexit deal this month, a minister has said.

Root scored an unbeaten century as England piled up a 448-run lead at stumps on day three.

Pundits and fans have taken to social media to praise his forward-thinking actions, with former England captain Nasser Hussain describing Root as a role model.

West Indies interim coach Richard Pybus said he was unaware of the comment but it will be addressed if deemed unfit. "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".

"It's been a tough three games and we have been outplayed at times so I think it was important we showed some resilience, bounced back and showed what we are capable of as a side".

"I've had some awful dark days with injuries and things like confidence and self-belief", Wood said.
