Cook leads way

ENGLAND’S CAPTAIN Alastair Cook etched his name in the record books with the 100th Test century at Kensington Oval yesterday but his dismissal in the final over gave the West Indies the initiative.

On an absorbing opening day of the decisive third and final Wisden cricket Test, Cook batted from the first ball until the last, when he was caught behind by his opposite number, Denesh Ramdin, cutting at part-time off-spinner Marlon Samuels for a solid 105.

It left England, who lead the series 1-0, on an unsatisfactory 240 for seven and climaxed an encouraging day for the Windies, whose disciplined bowling effort was spearheaded by home town hero Jason Holder (2-34) and burly pacer Shannon Gabriel (2-36) after Kemar Roach was dropped for the returning Jerome Taylor.
