England v West Indies: Headingley defeat for Root's men

Pat Cummins has produced a lethal spell of fast bowling in the first Test against Bangladesh

West Indies pulled off an astonishing chase at Headingley on Tuesday to beat England by five wickets in the second Test to level the three-match series at one-all.

Hope (147 and 118 not out) became the first player in history to record two centuries in a first-class match at Headingley, while Brathwaite came close to achieving the same landmark - scoring 134 and 95 as the Windies triumphed by five wickets.

The 23-year-old had not made a hundred in any of his previous 11 Test matches.

West Indies was 5-0 at stumps after Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieran Powell survived six tricky overs at the end of the day, and a couple of loud England appeals.

If the trade doesn't go through by Wednesday night, both teams will need to mutually agree to extend the trade-review deadline. They have until Thursday to complete the trade.

In an exciting turnaround on Monday, England declared on 490 for eight, a lead of 322 after a superb performance by Moeen Ali gave them a good shot at victory.

But I disagree. To score 322 in the fourth innings was a hell of a lot of runs.

West Indies seemed to be pulling things back when they grabbed three wickets for just 27 runs in the second session to reduce England to 357 for seven at tea - a lead of 188 runs - but Ali and Woakes then posted 117 for the eighth wicket to keep their side on top in the final session.

While their batsmen prepare a rearguard action, England's bowlers will go out in pursuit of the 10 wickets needed to win the series.

Broad should have struck in the fourth over of the morning, following a 15-minute delayed start due to drizzle, when Brathwaite, on 4, edged a lifting delivery towards first slip but it burst through the hands of Alastair Cook.

Stuart Broad had a hand in both wickets to fall on the final morning at Headingley - literally in the case of a freaky run out of Kyle Hope - but Kraigg Brathwaite escaped two dropped catches to continue his outstanding match.

After tea, Roston Chase (30) was brilliantly caught by diving substitute fielder Mason Crane at mid-on.

Nobody had ever made a century in both innings of a first-class match here at Headingley. So when he came out here and scored the first one I told him to remember it and he came out and scored his second one so a lot of credit must go to him. An absolutely splendid game and well done to the West Indies.
