Shai Hope the hero in thrilling West Indies win

BBC:-West Indies produced a masterful chase to win a Test in England for the first time in 17 years with a five-wicket victory in a thrilling match.

With 322 the target, the nerveless Shai Hope starred, becoming the first man to score a century in both innings of a first-class match at Headingley.

Opener Kraigg Brathwaite had earlier struck a superb 95 after being dropped by Alastair Cook on four.

Aided by Jermaine Blackwood’s 41, Hope hit the winning runs to finish on 118.

Victory for the tourists – which looked unlikely at the start of day five, particularly given their heavy defeat in the first Test – ties the series at 1-1 before the decider at Lord’s from 7-11 September.

    These West Indies guys are young and tainted. They just need to be consistent by staying focused and committed. Congratulations! Now take this momentum and win the series. Best of luck.
