Catch The best of the action from England vs Windies 1st test Day 2 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.
As the England vs Windies 1st test Day 2 ended. West Indies were bossing things, 339 runs ahead with four second-innings wickets standing, having obliterated England for 77 – the lowest Test score at Kensington Oval, one of the most-storied grounds. Homeboy Kemar Roach was the architect of their downfall. Kemar Roach blew away the English batsmen with a brilliant spell post lunch spell of 5 for 4. England succumbing meekly to Bajan pace and bounce. While Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes sparked a retaliatory collapse of 5 for 9 in the Windies innings, Shimron Hetmyer and Shane Dowrich steadied things during the evening. Eighteen wickets fell in the day, and West Indies’ seamers will doubtless be licking their lips about prospect of inflicting some more old-school beats tomorrow.
