Day to forget for Windies


Share post:

A DAY THAT STARTED with the promise of saving the second Test match ended in massive disappointment and defeat for the West Indies.

An unforgettable morning session in which the hosts dramatically lost six wickets after resuming on 202 for two paved the way for England to complete a nine-wicket victory in the pre-tea session at the National Stadium in Grenada yesterday.

Trailing by 165 on first innings, West Indies battled on the penultimate day on the back of a century from Kraigg Brathwaite but the opening batsman’s dismissal for 116 soon after resumption yesterday signalled the beginning of the end.

West Indies were dismissed for 307 in their second innings, leaving England a target of 143 that was achieved for the loss of only one wicket. (BN)
