Ton for Blackwood

Date:

Share post:

NORTH SOUND – West Indies batsman Jermaine Blackwood successfully navigated a rough period of bowling to carve his maiden Test century, but England are still in the driver’s seat in the first match of the Wisden Trophy series at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

 In between being caught off a no-ball, dropped on 43 and surviving an lbw review on 73, Blackwood played some breathtaking and authoritative stokes to finish unbeaten on 112 as the West Indies fell for 295, 104 behind England on first innings.

Despite a promising start from the West Indies bowlers second time around, England’s score of 116-3 gives them a lead of 220 with two days left. The West Indies would need another pre-lunch blitz like they achieved on the first two days to prevent a huge victory target.
