West Indies crush England in 3rd test to win series

West Indies crushed England by 10 wickets in the third and final cricket Test on Sunday to win the series 1-0. The hosts needed only 4.5 overs on Day 4 to reach the winning target in Grenada. West Indies finished on 28-0 in the second innings after earlier dismissing England for 120. West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite was 20 not out and John Campbell undefeated on 6. When England resumed on 103-8, it was already on the brink of defeat with a lead of only 10 runs with just two wickets in hand in its second innings. The visitors lasted another 11 overs in the opening session with Kemar Roach (2-10 off 9.2 overs) taking both England wickets _ Chris Woakes (19) and Jack Leach (4). No. 11 Saqib Mahmood, who hit a defiant 49 in the first innings, was 3 not out. West Indies...

ENG vs WI, 3rd Test, Day 1: Tailenders’ 90-run last stand saves England

Tailenders Jack Leach and Saqib Mahmood dragged England to a face-saving 204 all out at stumps against West Indies with a dogged last stand on the first day of their series-deciding Test on Thursday. Mahmood, the No. 11 batsman, joined Leach, the No. 10, when England was a perilous 114-9 straight after tea. They were expected to be bowling at the home side imminently. But they batted on and on, frustrating West Indies by combining for 90 precious runs in 36.2 overs in England’s best last-wicket stand in eight years. The team’s next best partnership was 24 for the ninth wicket. They saved England from utter humiliation by becoming the team’s highest-scoring batters. Mahmood, playing his second test and batting for the first time, was last man out for 49 with two balls left in the day, wh...

WI vs ENG: England lead West Indies by 136 runs in Barbados

England led West Indies by 136 runs and was setting up a second declaration to try and force a result in the second Test at Kensington Oval. West Indies was finally bowled out for 411, trailing by 96 runs, and England openers Zac Crawley and Alex Lees added 40 without loss in 15 overs before bad light ended play on the fourth day. Last week in Antigua, England led by 153 into the final day and set West Indies a winning target of 286 in 71 overs. West Indies didn’t take the bait and the Test was safely drawn. England’s strategy shouldn’t change in Barbados, and neither should the end result on a similarly flat pitch. West Indies captain and opener Kraigg Brathwaite frustrated England for a third straight day until he was out for 160 after nearly 12 hours. He started the day on 109 and h...

England’s red-ball reset gets reality check in West Indies | Cricket News – Times of India

England's so-called red ball reset after the recent Ashes debacle endured a sobering reality check against West Indies on Friday when their bowlers toiled for only three wickets on a long day in the field at Kensington Oval in Barbados. West Indies closed on 288 for four in their first innings in reply to England's 507 for nine declared. On a placid pitch that has exposed the bowling limitations of both teams, England struggled to regularly beat the bat of a stoic West Indies upper order determined to survive after starting day three of the second Test in a deep hole. With England's two genuinely quick pacemen, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, injured, and veterans Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad left out of the touring party, the Caribbean trip is serving as an audition for those present.

West Indies docked WTC points, drop below Bangladesh to eighth place

West Indies on Monday slipped to eighth spot in the World Test Championship standings after being penalised by docking two points for slow over-rate during their drawn first Test against England in Antigua. The Kraigg Brathwaite-led side were found to have been two overs short after reasonable adjustments and time allowances had been taken into consideration, the ICC said. As a result, West Indies were fined 40 per cent of their match fee and were also penalised two points in the ICC World Test Championship standings, dropping below Bangladesh to eighth place in the nine-steam standings. They are one of three teams to have been docked points due to penalty overs. A blow for West Indies as they slip to eighth in the World Test Championship. 🔹 Docked two points for slow over-rate.🔹 Team ...

Series of quick dismissals left Zak Crawley wondering about his future | Cricket News – Times of India

A long lean spell of quick dismissals tested the self-belief of Zak Crawley, the relieved England opener acknowledged after scoring an unbeaten century on day four of the first Test against West Indies on Friday. Crawley stamped himself as potentially a high-order batter to lead England for years to come when he made a home double century against Pakistan in 2020, but that innings total of 267 proved to be a false dawn.

Ben Stokes keen to make amends after ‘letting down’ team in Ashes | Cricket News – Times of India

England all-rounder Ben Stokes said he "let the team" down in their 4-0 Ashes drubbing in Australia, and pledged to do better in their three-match Test series against West Indies. Stokes made his return to cricket at the Ashes in December last year after taking an indefinite break from the game to focus on his mental health and recover from a finger injury, but struggled to find his best form Down Under. The 30-year-old, who was hampered by a side strain which he picked up while playing in the fourth test, had an average of 23.60 with the bat, with a high score of 66, and took four wickets. "Looking back on Australia we've had some honest reflections, not only as a team but individuals," Stokes told reporters on Saturday. "One of my reflections on the tour as a whole was that I personal...

‘Bruised’ Joe Root to captain England in West Indies after Ashes flop | Cricket News – Times of India

LONDON: Joe Root was confirmed as England's Test captain for next month's tour of the West Indies by interim managing director Andrew Strauss on Friday despite leading the side in a woeful 4-0 series loss in Australia. But batting coach Graham Thorpe is the latest senior member of team management to pay the price for the Ashes humiliation, following the departures of managing director Ashley Giles and head coach Chris Silverwood. Ex-England captain Strauss, who has replaced Giles on a temporary basis, said Root would remain in charge for the red-ball tour of the Caribbean, with the first Test starting on March 8. "It's probably worth saying at this stage that Joe Root will be captaining the side in the West Indies," Strauss told reporters. "Having spoken to him it is absolutely clear th...

Collingwood to stand in as England coach for West Indies series | Cricket News – Times of India

Former England captain Paul Collingwood will stand in as head coach for England's five-match Twenty20 International series against West Indies next month, the country's cricket board (ECB) said on Thursday.

Eoin Morgan will captain the squad. Collingwood was at the T20 World Cup earlier this year with England before going to the Ashes, but flew back to Britain last week.

Jofra Archer undergoes second elbow surgery, to miss West Indies tour

Fast bowler Jofra Archer has undergone a second operation on his injured right elbow and will be sidelined until next summer, the England and Wales Cricket Board said Tuesday. The England paceman, whose absence is being felt during the current Ashes series, had surgery on Dec. 11 in London. “The procedure addressed the long-standing stress fracture of his right elbow,” the ECB said in a statement. The 26-year-old Archer has not played at the highest level for nine months. He has been ruled out of a test series against the West Indies in March. Archer had elbow surgery in May after pulling out of the Indian Premier League and then feeling pain in the same area bowling for Sussex in an English County Championship match. !function(f,b,e,v,n,t,s) {if(f.fbq)return;...
