WI vs ENG, 2nd Test, Windies v England Test Series 2019, 31 Jan 2019
West Indies won by 10 wickets
BALL BY BALL
John Campbell wraps up the ten wicket win and series win in style carting Jimmy Anderson over mid wicket. The Windies have thoroughly outperformed England in this series. Their bowlers have had greater pace and penetration and their batsmen have shown greater discipline. Darren Bravo's 50 off 216 balls will never be considered one of test cricket's most entertaining knocks but his stoic discipline did so much to muster the lead of 119. England mentally were probably beaten after the first innings was complete. They never trusted the surface or their technique to survive for long periods. The surface was truly challenging thoroughout and batsmen had to wear some bruises but it made for some entertaining cricket played on fast forward. Kemar Roach (4-52), Jason Holder (4-43) and Alzarri Joseph (2-12) exploited conditions perfectly and their pace quartet were a real menace. This game is done in three days. The final test takes place in St Lucia next week.
