Eng vs WI 3rd Test highlights: Hosts regain Wisden Trophy, win series 2-1

England pacer Stuart Broad became the seventh man in test history to claim 500 wickets,
England cricket team defeated West Indies by 296 runs in the third and final Test at The Old Trafford, Manchester on Tuesday. With this England regain the Wisden Trophy as the hosts clinches the three match seires 2-1. However, from the next Test series Wisden Trophy is rechristened to Richard-Bottom Trophy.

Earlier,  England pacer Stuart Broad became the seventh man in test history to claim 500 wickets, and also took the catch that put the West Indies four wickets down.

After rain washed out play on Monday, the third test resumed on time with England refreshed and in a predatory mood to regain the Wisden Trophy.

The West Indies was already two wickets down for 10 runs, any hope of making 399 to win long gone, and needing to bat through the day to force a series-saving draw.

But after one brief interruption for a passing shower, Broad reached 500 wickets in style within the first hour when he trapped opener Kraigg Brathwaite plumb in front, struck low on the back leg on 19.

The wicket was also Broad's third of the innings and ninth of the match.

By strange coincidence, Brathwaite was also the 500th wicket in 2017 for James Anderson, the only Englishman ahead of Broad on the wickets list. Anderson bowled better than Broad in the morning session without reward.

Broad took the catch for the fourth wicket when Shai Hope, oblivious to the need to knuckle down, tried to pull Chris Woakes and mishit the ball straight up. He was out for 31, his best test score since January 2019.

Another poor shot cost Shamarh Brooks, who went on his back foot to swing at Woakes and gave an inside edge behind on 22.

Roston Chase was 5 not out and Jermaine Blackwood on 3 when a second shower 20 minutes before lunch made the interval easy to call.

Two of England's greatest: Strauss lauds Broad and Anderson

Former England captain Andrew Strauss heaped praise on fast-bowling duo Stuart Broad and James Anderson and stated their hunger for the game is nothing less than extraordinary.

The two veteran bowlers have put England in a commanding position in the ongoing #raisethebat Test series against West Indies. Going into the fifth day of the third Test, England need eight wickets to clinch the series while the visitors need 389 runs.

"For all of us, let's write [Broad and Anderson] off at our peril and let's not be in a hurry to pension them off, because they have both got a lot more to offer England," Strauss told reporters according to Cricbuzz.

"They are two of England's greatest of all time. What has really impressed me with both them is their hunger to continue. Anyone who has played for England for a long period of time will know there is a lot of sacrifice.

"You're away from home a lot and certainly as a bowler you have to do more physical work and do all the rehab work to make sure you are ready to go. For two to be so hungry is extraordinary," he added.

 


Andrew Strauss feels Stuart Broad is at the top of his game

Former England skipper Andrew Strauss feels that Stuart Broad has never been in a better form as the right-handed bowler requires just one more wicket to become the fourth seamer in history to claim 500 Test wickets.
 
Broad was left stuck on 499 wickets as the fourth day of the third Test match between England and West Indies was abandoned by the rain.
 
The 34-year-old bowler will go into the final day of the Test series against West Indies on Tuesday requiring one more wicket to become only the second England bowler to pick 500 wickets in the longest format of the game.
 
"I honestly don't believe Stuart Broad has bowled much better than this. There were a couple of years where perhaps he lost his wrist a bit and it was hard work for him bowling to right-handers. But in this series he seems to be equally potent against left- and right-handers," ESPNcricinfo quoted Strauss as saying.
 
"But when we look at all of his attributes. you can talk about his height and pace; it's actually his competitiveness and we have seen this year. He is at his best when he has something to prove. He's had the bit between his teeth in these last two Test matches and that has served him particularly well over the course of his career," he added.

Windies coach urges batsmen to score big in 4th innings

West Indies head coach Phil Simmons has urged his batsmen to convert starts into big hundreds if they want to save the ongoing third and final Test against England at the Old Trafford.
 
Stuart Broad's six-wicket haul ensured the hosts took a huge first innings lead and then he scalped two more in the second to leave the visitors on the brink on Sunday.
 
West Indies were left reeling at 10/2 at the end of third day's play, still needing 389 runs to win the Test. If England win the Test, they will clinch the Wisden Trophy and if the visitors somehow manage to eke out even a draw, they will retain the title.
 
"We haven't had any centuries in this series so I'm always going to be putting pressure on them to go out there and get it," Simmons told a news conference.
 
"The wicket is still a good wicket to bat on, so they have to set themselves a target of getting a big score on this wicket. We've got to show that determination to get those big scores. READ FULL ARTICLE HERE

After going wicketless for nearly 11 months of Test cricket, Roach broke the duck in the second Test and picked four during the England innings in the third.

He ended the innings with figures of 4/72. "I guess I had that landmark on my mind a little bit too much, I had a few restless nights," the fast bowler who is playing his 59th Test told the BBC.
 
"It's good to get past that barrier now and see how many more I can get. 300 would be great. I'll work hard to get there and we'll see how many I can go past 300." READ MORE

Eng vs WI news updates: Broad takes inspiration from Shane Warne for batting revival

England pacer Stuart Broad has revealed that he took inspiration from Shane Warne in order to have a revival in his batting.

His remark came as Broad smashed the joint third-fastest fifty in Test cricket for England.

Broad went on to play a knock of 62 runs against West Indies in the first innings of the third Test against West Indies.

"Tactically it was the right thing to do and something I've worked on with Peter Moores at Nottinghamshire. He brought me the example of Shane Warne who didn't look particularly pretty at times but hit balls in different areas and was really effective, especially in the 2005 Ashes," cricket.com.au quoted Broad as saying.

"Quite unorthodox, opening up different parts of the field; I looked at that, did a bit of research as to how he went about it, and decided it was a good way for me to go - opening up the offside," he added.

Broad had come out to the middle with England in a spot of bother at 280/8, but his innings allowed the hosts to end up with 369.

"It felt pretty comfortable, having a clear game plan of what to do. Batting is such a frustrating, weird thing. If you'd have told me this morning I'd get 10, I'd be pretty happy, and then you end up getting 60 and start kicking the ground that you've not got 70," Broad said.

"There was a little bit of thought process in the madness, but I did enjoy myself out there," he added.

Highlights: West Indies on back foot as top order fails to deliver on day two

England continued its dominance in the third and final Test as West Indies lost six wickets in the first innings with just 137 runs on board on day two at the Emirates Old Trafford Stadium here on Saturday.
 
The Jason Holder-led side still needs 33 runs more to avoid a follow on. Resuming from 258/4 on day two, England witnessed the worst possible start as the side lost Ollie Pope without an addition to his overnight score. In the very next over, Kemar Roach clean bowled Chris Woakes to become the first Windies bowler to take 200 wickets since Curtly Ambrose in 1994 in Test cricket.
 
Two overs later, Roach again wreaked havoc and claimed his fourth wicket of the innings as Jofra Archer edged the ball to West Indies skipper Jason Holder in the slips. Stuart Broad added valuable late runs and smashed the joint third-fastest half-century for England and took his team to a respectable total. England were folded for 369 runs in the first innings.
 
Broad continued his excellent performance with the bowl too and provided England with a breakthrough in his first over dismissing Kraigg Brathwaite for just one run. John Campbell and Shai Hope then stitched a brief 43 run stand before an excellent bouncer by Jofra Archer sent Campbell on his way for 32 runs.
 
Campbell's wicket triggered a top-order collapse as West Indies lost four quick wickets before the end of the day's play due to bad light. For England, James Anderson and Broad took two wickets while Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes bagged a wicket each.

Eng vs WI 3rd Test Day 1 highlights: Pope, Buttler counter helps England take control

A counter-attacking knock from Jos Buttler (57*) and Ollie Pope (91*) ensured that England had the upper hand in the third session of a day that was otherwise dominated by the West Indies in the third Test between the two sides at the Old Trafford on Friday.
 
At stumps, which was declared early on Day 1 due to bad light, England were 258/4 following an unbeaten 136-run partnership between Buttler and Pope.
 
The pair started the final session with England reeling at 131/4 with Buttler on 2 and Pope on 24. Fatigue of a long day of running down a damp Old Trafford track and an aging ball seemed to catch up with the West Indies fast bowlers as they looked tired and sore throughout the third session.
 
Buttler and Pope took advantage of the situation as they scored at a brisk rate. The 100-run partnership between the two came off just 175 balls. The West Indies took the second new ball, but the umpires had to call the players off just after three overs due to bad light.
 
Earlier, the West Indies were in the driver's seat throughout the first two sessions as they kept England on a tight leash with regular wickets. Hosts captain Joe Root was dismissed just before Lunch, and in the second session, talismanic all-rounder Ben Stokes was bowled by Kemar Roach.
 
The three-Test series is currently level at 1-1.

AT LUNCH BREAK: England 66-1

England lost Dom Sibley in the first over and captain Joe Root near the end of the session to reach lunch at 66-2 on the first day of third and final Test against the West Indies at Old Trafford, Manchester on Friday. It was an encouraging start for the tourists, especially with England being one specialist batsman light for the match after choosing to select four fast bowlers as well as a spinner. That meant star allrounder Ben Stokes moved up the order to No. 4.
 
Stokes was already in the middle by lunch, on 7 alongside opener Rory Burns (33).
 
After the Windies won the toss under overcast skies, Kemar Roach trapped Sibley lbw off the sixth ball of the innings from a ball that didn't deviate.
 
Sibley, a century-maker in the second test won by England, didn't get off the mark this time after playing across the delivery and was so plumb he didn't bother reviewing.


 
Root played circumspectly for his 17 off 59 balls and was looking set when he tried to pinch a single after Burns steered recalled spinner Rahkeem Cornwall down to third man. Roston Chase threw to the wicketkeeper's end and clipped the outside of the stump, one bail popping up with Root short of the crease.
 
West Indies paceman Shannon Gabriel started for the third straight match this series and spent some time off the field with an apparent hamstring strain after pulling up during his fourth over. He returned, though, to the relief of captain Jason Holder and was back bowling before lunch.
 
The series is tied at 1-1 and the Windies, who won the first test in Southampton, are looking to capture a test series in England for the first time since 1988.
 
England recalled pacemen Jofra Archer and James Anderson in place of Sam Curran and top-order batsman Zak Crawley, leading to that restructuring of the batting order.
 
Stokes is struggling for full fitness and is unlikely to bowl, so will be a specialist batsman for this test.
 
The West Indies made one change, bringing in Cornwall for Alzarri Joseph.

Preview: Joe Root & co look to clinch series, Wisden Trophy

The equation for the third and final Test of the ongoing three-match series at the Old Trafford starting Friday is simple -- hosts England need a win to clinch the Wisden Trophy while West Indies need just a draw to retain the title.

However, things aren't going to be easy for the visitors as momentum is on England's side following their 113-run victory in the second Test. The hosts will also be boosted by the return of fast-bowler Jofra Archer, who was axed for the second Test for breaking bio-secure bubble protocols. READ FULL ARTICLE HERE
