West Indies Beat England As Blackwood scores 95

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Mon Jul 13, 2020 6:42 am

"How West Indies deserved their win; they were resolute, disciplined and skilful throughout. We knew they could bowl but their batsmen came up with the goods under pressure, with Blackwood a surprising hero ..."


Vic Marks: West Indies hold on for famous win over England after dramatic first Test

"On Friday, Archer had been goaded by the old Bajan fast bowler Tino Best on Twitter. “Your bowling toothpaste,” Best said, “and u haven’t bowled quickly since the ASHES, now go sleep and get some rest for WI to beat ya ball second innings.”


Jofra Archer proves his point but Jermaine Blackwood has last laugh

Sportsmail's Lawrence Booth's England v West Indies first Test ratings: Jason Holder underlined why he is ranked No 3 in the Test bowling rankings while a pair of 12s brought Ollie Pope back to earth

Black Lives Matter movement gave West Indies extra motivation, says Darren Sammy

He wishes he was the No.1 allrounder in world cricket.

Jofra Archer excluded by England for breach of biosecure pro

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Thu Jul 16, 2020 4:33 am

After being named in the England team for the 2nd test ...

"Jofra Archer was today sensationally left out of the second Test against West Indies at Emirates Old Trafford after breaking coronavirus protocols by making an unauthorised detour to visit his home ..."


Jofra Archer took 100-mile detour to go home, breaking England's biosecurity rules to put team-mates in danger - before he was kicked out of the squad after a TRACKER picked up his secret Hove trip

Image

The players drove from the Ageas Bowl near Southampton to Old Trafford in Manchester - a journey of 227 miles lasting about four hours if the most direct route is taken

The detour from the Ageas Bowl to Archer's home in Hove added another 120 miles to the trip

Sibley & Stokes bat England into strong position

I do hope that we will not end up regretting having a specialist spinner on this wicket:

"Chase is a much better bowler in Test matches against England than he ever was against the club sides of the Sussex Premier League, where he spent a season playing for Cuckfield in 2015 ..."


Roston Chase's ordinary fare proves too rich for England batsmen

Stokes & Sibley centuries put England in command

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Sat Jul 18, 2020 6:41 am

Interesting to see the Match Referee's hysterical son selected, given his long-standing sense of self-entitlement.

2nd Test, Day 3 - Rain Saves England

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Sun Jul 19, 2020 7:26 am

As the rain saved England from a day of chasing leather around Old Trafford, there are no highlights of play.

Instead, let us rewind to the third day's play of a previous England v West Indies Old Trafford Test:
