Leading England out at Headingley will be special

A rare moment of joy for West Indies’ players in England Leading England out at Headingley will be special

We are not performing as well as we want. But in home conditions he is a magician.

England and West Indies 2nd Test Date and Time: The match will be begin on Friday, August 24, 2017.

Reflecting on the shift in fortunes from the previous Test, Brathwaite added: "Looking in the mirror at ourselves, looking at that game, we knew we could do better".

Root has, of course, hit two big centuries this summer but since his double hundred against Pakistan at Old Trafford a year ago he has only converted three of his 14 half centuries into the hundreds that would make him a true great.

England have been guilty of allowing him to stay camped on his back foot and hardly get him forward at all.

"I think it's just having that mentally of being ruthless and at no point easing off the gas when we get into a position of strength".

Brathwaite was involved in four reviews in all - twice overturning decisions given against him, twice surviving England's attempts to winkle him out via DRS.

While that may be the case, this was primarily a day to acknowledge the skill and determination of Brathwaite and the youngest Hope brother.

"We played the same team, they played the same team and our boys stood up", he said. Like the Lankans, the Windies have the potential to put a decent fight, and they must do so with both bat and ball when they take the field.


Hope looks the more talented batsman. Brathwaite and Hope ensured they did not disappoint. Hope looks the more natural and gifted player whereas Brathwaite is your limpet, nearly Chanderpaul-like and can be the backbone of the innings.

"The guys were totally honest with themselves that we weren't good enough in the first Test", said Roach of a match where England piled up 514 for eight declared and then skittled the West Indies out for 168 and 137.

Occupy the crease, five days is a long time in Test cricket.

The 76-year-old former England and Yorkshire batsman suggested he would have a better chance of being knighted if he "blacked up", a national newspaper reported today.

Stokes's score of exactly 100 was the cornerstone of England's modest 258 all out.

The current squad presently on tour of England is quite inexperienced at the worldwide level - with the most senior player being Kemar Roach at age 29 with 38 matches and 124 wickets. West Indies' Darren Sammy and South Africa pair Hashim Amla and Morne Morkel are also in the squad. They need to reach the close on something like 300-6, and go to bed tonight dreaming of a series victory that would be the biggest upset since Usain Bolt came third. Whether that makes life more hard in the slips or even mid-off and mid-on...

"It is just the experience of learning how to play in a very tough environment".

"I guess you get some luck every now and then", Stokes said last night.
