Spectacular Hope gives Windies historic win

Hope continued to defy England and reached his second hundred from 175 deliveries with a sharply run single into the off side, moving West Indies' score to 276-4 in the evening session, just 46 runs away from a rare away win.

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

OPENER Kraigg Brathwaite carved out his sixth Test hundred while immensely talented stroke-maker Shai Hope gathered his first, as West Indies dominated England to take a surprise advantage on the second day of the second Test at Headingley yesterday.

The Windies opener had only four to his name when he edged Stuart Broad to first slip and although the ball flew to Cook, it is a chance he would usually snaffle.

Blackwood, who uppercut Broad for six, tried to win the match in style but, having removed his helmet, he was stumped off Ali for 41, having put on a vital 74 with Shai Hope.

The pair, who both scored hundreds first time around, again combined superbly, compiling another century partnership to provide the backbone of the Windies' gripping chase of 322 runs to level the three-match series.

Root and Malan set up England's second innings push against the West Indies with their stand of 118 for the fourth wicket, and Malan and Stokes put on 91 to continue England's comeback.

"It's been a unusual Test match, there have been so many catches go down, it's hard to put your finger on it".

This match alone will not save Test cricket from declining interest and its struggle for position against cricket's other formats. We've come up playing a lot of cricket together for Barbados. Shai Hope has joined him in the crease. "We fought hard throughout the game, so we needed to do well with the bat".

"The declaration was a positive thing to do, we want to win Test matches, when you get the opportunity to try and win you take it". "After getting the kicking we did at Edgbaston, to get the boys back up to achieve what they've done these last five days, it's a great effort - not just by the players themselves but all the support staff".

"I'm very proud of them, and of the two young guys who scored the runs". He's been going through a form dip but, hopefully, the pretty 20s are gone and the pretty 120s are here to stay. "It takes a lot of character to come out after the beating we got".

"When Shai Hope was nine years old he was interviewed on Barbados TV and asked what his dream was".
