LONDON – West Indies snatched two wickets in the final session to stymie England’s momentum but were still facing a tall order after captain Andrew Strauss’s 20th century, and first in nearly two years, put the hosts in control of the opening Test here yesterday.
When bad light ended the second day’s play two deliveries into the second new ball, England had marched to 259 for three, already a lead of 16 runs with three days remaining.
Strauss was unbeaten on 121, his fifth century at Lord’s, and was with the stylish Ian Bell who was on five from the 13 balls he has faced.
The prolific Jonathan Trott cashed in with 58 while Kevin Pietersen (32) and Alistair Cook (26) got starts but failed to carry on.
