Hope and glory as West Indies stun England

Hope and glory as West Indies stun England

Bowling coach, Roddy Estwick, conceded Monday that West Indies had failed to properly negotiate the big moments on the penultimate day of the second Test but warned pundits not to write off the Caribbean side ahead of a tense final day on Tuesday.

Hope came to the crease at 53 for two but belied his tender years and relative inexperience in only his 12th Test to put on a match-altering 144-run partnership with Kraigg Brathwaite, a stand that ultimately helped to secure the Windies' first victory on these shores since June 2000. It was about trying to get as many runs on the board as possible, so I'm actually pleased I got through the 90s a bit faster.

Only Australia, with 404 for three back in 1948, had made more to win in the fourth innings of a Headingley Test.

Noted dirty player Vontaze Burfict suspended 5 games for dirty hit
The Bengals and Chiefs faced off in the second preseason game for each team on August 19, a 30-12 road win for Kansas City. The Bengals' linebacker has always been known for hard hits, and it's one of those that has him in trouble now.

"I think it's put a lot of doubters out there to bed", Law told Sky Sports. Windies still required 76 runs to win and just over 20 overs in which to do it but the tourists had clearly chose to go for it. Micro blogging site Twitter was abuzz with tweets pouring in appreciating West Indies' victory. In a match where dropped catches had cost Windies 238 runs, there was further drama when the normally reliable Alastair Cook at first slip floored Brathwaite, yet to add to his overnight four, off Stuart Broad.

The opener pressed on to register his fifty off 98 balls with seven fours, Shai Hope reaching the same milestone in 28 few balls as England's frustration grew. England's bowlers toiled, but there was plenty of loose stuff which meant the run rate never got out of hand for Windies.

His wicket gave the home side an end to bowl at but Hope and Roston Chase accumulated steadily after the interval.

England captain Joe Root, who bemoaned a day of dropped catches, described Hope's knock as "exceptional".

At the time of writing, there were no reports of ISIL fighters failing to respect submit to both ceasefires . Hezbollah fighters are seen in a truck in Jroud Arsal, near Syria-Lebanon border, August 13, 2017.

Shai Hope s single off Broad completed a superb century off 175 balls, including 13 fours, as he became the first West Indian to score hundreds in both innings of a Test in England since Gordon Greenidge at Old Trafford in 1976.

When Hope did offer a chance, slashing at Broad on 106, Cook could not hold on to the rapid chance and the batsman rubbed salt in the wound by upper-cutting the seamer for six.

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.
