New Hope For Windies Cricket

It was one of the great Test matches. England’s Headingley cricket ground has seen some remarkable Test match final days and West Indies created their own extraordinary tale on August 22 by chasing down 322 vicory target they’d been set to level their current 3 Test series 1-1.

Barbados’ Shai Hope was the West Indies batting hero becoming the first batsman to score twin hundreds on the ground in first-class cricket. At 6.43pm, with the floodlights illuminating the ground almost as much as the previous day-night Test, Hope tucked the ball through square to complete one of the most unexpected redemption stories in Test cricket history.

West Indies 427 (Hope 147, Brathwaite 134, Anderson 5-76) and 

322 for 5 (Hope 118*, Brathwaite 95) beat England 258 (Stokes 100, Gabriel 4-51, Roach 4-71) and 490 (Moeen 84, Root 72) by five wickets
