Hope and Brathwaite shine again as Windies scent victory

Hope and Brathwaite shine again as Windies scent victory”

England already leads the three-match series 1-0 after victory by an innings in the first match.

Chasing a total of 322, West Indies reached their target in fading light late on day five with Shai Hope hitting a brilliant unbeaten 118 while opener Kraigg Brathwaite contributed a vital 95. Brathwaite and Hope put on 144 on Tuesday following their first-innings partnership of 246, when Brathwaite made 134.

"Shai Hope was just outstanding, to come out in the first innings and score his maiden Test century". Here, he was elegant through the offside and assured off his legs.

As a result, West Indies was able to chase down 322 in 91.2 overs and record a famous win just 10 days after it lost 19 wickets in a day en route to a humiliating first-Test defeat at Edgbaston.

OFAC Seemingly Against Apple's Anti-Iran Bias

England captain Joe Root was left to lament the hosts' below-par first-innings 258 on his Yorkshire home ground. "For us, we have 317 runs to make tomorrow and we've still got to believe that we can win the game", he contended. We would have had a tiresome day with only one side going for a win. In a match where dropped catches had cost Windies 238 runs, there was further drama when the normally reliable Alastair Cook at first slip floored Brathwaite, yet to add to his overnight four, off Stuart Broad.

With the West Indies in cruise control, England were beginning to worry as the tourists were edging ever closer to victory.

Fittingly, Hope clipped the winning runs with a minimum of four overs remaining after sharing a pulsating 74-run stand for the fifth wicket with Jermaine Blackwood (41 off 45 balls).

UK says it will leave 'direct jurisdiction' of EU court
In January, the PM promised "we are not leaving (the EU) only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice ". Sir Vince Cable said he believes the Government's new position is a " sensible and long overdue climbdown ".

Chase benefited from a Ben Stokes overthrow to the tune of five runs, but fell for 30 when substitute fielder Mason Crane claimed a great diving catch at mid-on.

England took the new ball in search of wickets but Blackwood greeted Anderson by walking down the wicket and depositing him over long-on for six.

Stuart Law was a proud Windies coach after his side rallied from their Edgbaston nightmare to beat England in the second Test at Headingley. An absolutely splendid game and well done to the West Indies. Hope was the more fluent and stylish, his half-century coming off just 70 deliveries compared to the 98 balls it took Brathwaite, but both played straight, the recipe for success on a pitch with uneven bounce, and took advantage of scoring opportunities when they presented themselves.
