Windies pull off magnificent win after Hope ton

England's Stuart Broad drops catch but runs out Windies' Kyle Hope for a duck

"I ve just been told I was the first man to score a century in both first-class innings at Headingley", Hope said on BBC Radio s Test Match Special. Interestingly, this is first Test win for Windies in England in 17 years.

England lead this three-match series 1-0 after thrashing the West Indies by an innings and 209 runs in the first Test at Edgbaston.

Along with fellow Bajan Kraigg Brathwaite's fine batting - he added 95 to his first-innings century - and the evident reawakened spirit in the team, this was an emphatic answer to Windies greats like paceman Curtly Ambrose who had called their Edgbaston performance "pathetic".

Kyle Hope was the unlucky batsman, run out for a five-ball duck at the non-striker's end after Broad spilled a return catch from Brathwaite - on 29 at the time - only to deflect the ball onto the stumps.

James Anderson, needing three wickets to become the first England bowler to take 500 Test wickets, ended up wicket-less - his historic moment on hold, at least, until next week's third Test at Lord's.

The total turned out to be considerably below-par as the Windies responded with 427 and 322 for five in their two innings.


England needed a lift and got it just before tea when Brathwaite drove at a wide delivery from Ali and edged into the hands of Stokes at slip before leaving to a standing ovation.

Shai Hope was 74 not out and Roston Chase two not out. Appropriately, it was Hope who struck the winning runs with a legside flick for two off Chris Woakes. He put on 117 with Woakes for the eighth wicket, and Woakes and tailender Stuart Broad added another 46 before Root declared.

The series concludes with the third Test at Lord's starting on September 7. Fifth day, on a used wicket against high-quality bowling, great knock [from Shai Hope].

'I'm really pleased with the character and fight we showed to get back into a strong position last night but unfortunately it wasn't to be'.

England wrestled control of the second test away from the West Indies late on the fourth day on Monday, declaring its second innings on 490-8 and setting the tourists a tough target of 322 to win. It's about delivering on the big stage.

"I said if he gets one (hundred), he'll get plenty - well he got one and he's got another", said Law of Hope. I am a professional cricketer for a reason so I always believe in myself. Even once the game had been won, he looked determined to be there at the end and by then, he had batted for ten hours and 36 minutes in the game.
