London: England lost Alastair Cook for 26 on the way to 80 for one in reply to the West Indies total of 243 at lunch on the second day of the first cricket Test at Lord's on Friday.   

Andrew Strauss and Cook shared an untroubled opening partnership of 47 which ended when Cook tried to pull fast bowler Kemar Roach and dragged the ball on to his stumps.   

Captain Strauss, without a Test century for 18 months, reached 31 not out at the interval with Jonathan Trott on 17 as the hosts set about building up a commanding first-innings lead.   

England fast bowler Stuart Broad had struck with the first ball of the day to take the last West Indies wicket.   

Broad had Shannon Gabriel caught by Graeme Swann at second slip for a golden duck on his debut to complete test-best figures of seven for 72.   

Shivnarine Chanderpaul was left stranded on 87 not out, 13 runs short of his 26th Test century.   

The 37-year-old Chanderpaul became the ninth highest run-scorer in Tests on Thursday, overtaking India opener Sunil Gavaskar and moving on to 10,142 runs in his career.
