Recent Balls:

Chase spots Curran on the charge so fires this down leg, leaving the young left-hander stranded. Hope keeps his cool to whip the bails off and spark wild celebrations in Bridgetown. Chase finishes with eight wickets and Windies go 1-0 up in the three match series. What a sensational few days for Jason Holder's men this has been. West Indies have annihilated England by the massive margin of 381 runs in Bridgetown to take an early lead in the series. The tourists were left staring down the barrel after being set an impossible 628 for victory, but started brightly this morning thanks to an eye-catching Rory Burns half century. His dismissal on the brink of lunch saw the momentum shift as Roston Chase pick up the first of an amazing eight wickets at the Kensington Oval. The offspinner didn't turn the ball a long way but mainly deceived the English batsmen with deliveries that went straight on with some extra bounce. He aptly finished off the match by taking his 50th Test wicket on his home ground. Joe Root will reflect on an yet another awful day for his batsmen as loose strokes gifted the hosts wickets again and again. There are only a few days until the Second Test in Antigua with plenty for the tourists to work on. Jason Holder scoops the player of the match award for his emphatic double century, he has a massive smile on his face as he soaks in the moment. Every single member of his team has delivered at some point over the past four days in a perfect Test match for the Windies. .
