England need 10 wickets on final day to level series

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Mon Jul 20, 2020 5:03 am

Very sad to see the match jeopardised by well-set batsmen capitulating to some short of a length bowling:

"[The Match Referee's son] ... "produced one of his unstoppable spells today to give England a sniff of winning the Second Test against the West Indies ...

... Another epic spell came from Ben Stokes, who sent down an incredible 57 short balls during an 11-over burst ..."

"Ben Stokes masterclass helps England level the series"

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Mon Jul 20, 2020 7:59 pm

"After 15 overs, [West Indies] were in disarray. Campbell played an awful drive to be caught behind, Shai Hope was bowled by one that nipped back and Roston Chase was lbw shouldering arms, all to [the Match Referee's Son]. Kraigg Brathwaite was stuck on the crease to be leg before to Woakes ...

... West Indies captain Jason Holder: "I'm a little disappointed with the way we batted. Yesterday's evening batting performance really set us back ..."

"In the afternoon session the TV cameras caught West Indies head coach Phil Simmons stealing a few winks in the dressing room. That image captures nicely the state of mind of most of his batsmen. We all have taken a nap at work but in a Test match is a different thing: West Indies were caught snoozing by a relentless England."

West Indies coach Phil Simmons has admitted that he is "concerned" by the form of John Campbell and Shai Hope, and will consider making top-order changes ahead of the third Test.

Campbell and Hope both fell cheaply on the final day of the second Test, and have made 52 and 57 runs respectively in four innings each in this series. Speaking at the post-match press conference, Simmons also bemoaned West Indies' failure to convert fifties into hundreds throughout the series, and said that changes would have to be discussed.

"[Campbell and Hope's form] is something that we have to discuss over the next couple of days, and make a decision as to which direction we go there," Simmons said. "You're right, they haven't fired, so we've got to take that into consideration."

Cornwall Replaces Joseph as West Indies win toss and bowl

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Fri Jul 24, 2020 5:34 am

Summarised by Reuters:

Anderson, Archer return for England as West Indies win toss and bowl

James Anderson and Jofra Archer returned to England's bowling attack for the third and final test as the West Indies won the toss and put the hosts into bat on the opening day at Old Trafford on Friday.

England dropped Zak Crawley to add an extra bowler due to concerns around Ben Stokes´ fitness with the all-rounder having struggled with a quadriceps injury. Sam Curran was also left out.

Archer had been suspended for the second test after breaking biosecure protocols and he spoke earlier this week of his mental anguish after being racially abused on social media while spending five days in quarantine.

Yet after showing lightening pace in the nets in the build-up to the test, he has been selected along with veteran Anderson and Stuart Broad, who resume their long-standing partnership.

Broad, 34, remains in the side after taking six wickets in England´s 113-run victory over the West Indies in the second test and Anderson returns after being rested. The 37-year-old is just 13 wickets shy of reaching 600 test wickets.

Chris Woakes is the other bowler as England sacrificed a batsman.

The West Indies made just one change with Rahkeem Cornwall adding a frontline spinner in place of Alzarri Joseph.

West Indies captain Jason Holder said he had selected to bowl because of the wet conditions.

"I think there is enough moisture in the surface for us to try to make sure of it," he said.

Teams:

England - Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Joe Root (capt), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler (wkt), Chris Woakes, Dom Bess, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.

West Indies - Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich (wkt), Jason Holder (capt), Rahkeem Cornwall, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel. (Writing by Mark Gleeson in Cape Town; Editing by Toby Davis)

"Jason Holder is a softly spoken West Indies captain but that does not mean his words do not carry weight and before the third Test there was a point he clearly wanted to get across ..."

The Match Referee's Son stars as England dominate!

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Sat Jul 25, 2020 6:33 pm

After an excellent start to the day's play, our bowlers and then our batsmen capitulated again:

"An overcast day. Ball swinging even when 30 overs old. You didn't need to be a cricket pundit to know it might be England's day, especially when their four best fast bowlers were operating in tandem.

Yet it was the West Indies batsmen that made it England's day. By showing a total lack of intent. By getting intimidated in their minds even before the ball had pitched. By falling into the trap set. By forgetting they had a bat in hand to defend and strike with intent ..."
