Shai proud to breathe fresh Hope into Windies cricket

Shai proud to breathe fresh Hope into Windies cricket

The 23-year-old Hope had not scored a hundred in any of his previous 11 Test matches.

Beginning the evening needing 123 for victory as the floodlights punctured the gloom in West Yorkshire, Shai Hope easily survived a frivilous appeal after being struck on the pad by Broad.

England already leads the three-match series 1-0 after victory by an innings in the first match.

Hope came highly-recommended from the Caribbean - although an average of 18.61 prior to this Test is hardly a ringing endorsement.

I think we were all tricked by the pitch, we thought it was going to get worse and worse but it was flat as a pancake for the last two days - hardly anything happened.

Houston Cop Drowns as Patrol Car Trapped by Floods
A Houston police officer drowned in his patrol auto on the way to work, police department officials announced Tuesday. Steve Perez , 60, died Sunday morning while driving in a patrol vehicle to his station in downtown Houston .

Set a seemingly unlikely 322 to win after half-centuries from Mark Stoneman, Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali, Windies, who had lost 19 wickets in a day to lose the first Test at Edgbaston by an innings and 209 runs, batted with great attitude all along.

West Indies batsman Shai Hope celebrates his century against England at Headingley in Leeds, England, yesterday. "I'm pleased he got some runs and made the game easier for me".

Stuart Broad had a hand in both wickets to fall on the final morning at Headingley - literally in the case of a freakish run out of Kyle Hope - but Kraigg Brathwaite escaped two dropped catches to continue his outstanding match.

After bowling out England for 258, Windies posted 427 to secure a valuable first innings lead of 169 runs.

England needed a lift and got it just before tea when Brathwaite drove at a wide delivery from Ali and edged into the hands of Stokes at slip before leaving to a standing ovation.

Lebanon's army declares ceasefire in fight against IS
The surrender of the remains of the fighters by the extremists took place at the border crossing of Mira. Nusra Front militants and a Syrian rebel group withdrew from Lebanon's border region earlier this month.

Along with fellow Bajan Kraigg Brathwaite's fine batting - he added 95 to his first-innings century - and the evident reawakened spirit in the team, this was an emphatic answer to Windies greats like paceman Curtly Ambrose who had called their Edgbaston performance "pathetic".

"Shai Hope played exceptionally well", said Root. The list of dropped chances was added to when Brathwaite offered a return catch to Broad which he couldn't hold, but the ball deflected into the non-striker's stumps with Hope well out of his ground.

"[He's got] plenty of courage, plenty of character and plenty of determination, and he played really well".

It proved the one that got away as Brathwaite rode his luck to contribute a further match-shaping 91 runs in a crucial stand with Hope, who was also grassed by Cook after he had passed his hundred, the final nail in England's coffin.
