Shai Hope is Windies hero in incredible test triumph over England

30 August, 2017, 01:48 | Author: Nora May
  • Shakib Al Hasan playing his 50th Test alongside Tamim Iqbal scored briskly to arrest Bangladesh's early slide on Day 1

The Caribbean men produced a masterful run chase to beat the English men by five wickets in an exciting clash.

England finally saw the back of Kraigg Brathwaite for 95 but Shai Hope was still at the crease as the West Indies remained in the hunt for a stunning win, as a dramatic second Test at Headingley headed towards a thrilling conclusion. Alastair Cook dropped Brathwaite on 4 and Stuart Broad dropped him later too which would have exposed Windies' fragile lower-middle order far earlier in the day.

Jermaine Blackwood's made 41 while Hope who hit the winning runs finished unbeaten on 118.

West Indies seemed to be pulling things back when they grabbed three wickets for just 27 runs in the second session to reduce England to 357 for seven at tea - a lead of 188 runs - but Ali and Woakes then posted 117 for the eighth wicket to keep their side on top in the final session.

Their partnership allowed England captain Joe Root to declare his side's second innings on 490 for eight, leaving the West Indies, who again harmed their own cause with dropped catches, an imposing target of 322 to win.

He was also the first West Indies batsman to score hundreds in both innings of a Test in England since Gordon Greenidge at Old Trafford in 1976.

This was by some distance the most entertaining and tensest Test match of the summer.

"We're test cricketers for a reason".

This victory alone will not save West Indies cricket from all its problems and disputes between the board and more well-known players.

"Shai Hope played exceptionally well", said Root. "We fought hard throughout the game, so we needed to do well with the bat".

"We felt like their heads went down pretty quickly after tea", left-handed batsman Ali told reporters.

"What a five days", Law told Sky Sports.

It all represented a testament to England's batting strength in depth after they started on Monday just two runs in front and with three wickets already down. He's been going through a form dip but, hopefully, the pretty 20s are gone and the pretty 120s are here to stay.

"[He's got] plenty of courage, plenty of character and plenty of determination - for a 24-year-old, that's a lot to have".

"At no point were we complacent in the game - I'm really proud of the effort we showed to get in a position to win, but unfortunately it wasn't to be". "It's a remarkable turnaround and I'm so pleased for West Indies cricket". He said he wanted to play for West Indies.
