Cricket news - Anderson's late carnage triggers Windies collapse on Day 1
Five batsman to score over 40, and still, the Windies were left on the backfoot at 264 for 8, on the opening day of the first test. There was so much build due to their inability to, for a long innings, as he was, by James Anderson late in the carnage with the second new ball at the Kensington Oval against England on Wednesday.
Choosing to bat, the Windies got off to a steady start. For a change, Kraigg Brathwaite got good support in the company of debutant John Campbell. The duo looked out of a test phase of swing bowling in the first hour of the English new-ball pair of Anderson and Sam Curran, stitching a half-century partnership.
While Brathwaite had not even managed to register two digits, Campbell pushed the scoring-rate. The southpaw with the bow to have a good effect but was predictable after a point of time, eventually leading to his downfall, if he missed the delivery and trapped legbefore by Moeen Ali.
But Brathwaite and hope the Windies ", the most reliable batting pair in the last time - does not permit the fall, that England, at the top. In what has continued to be a feature of their batting in the last year, you have to dig in and, England any chances, with the hosts to lunch on 89 for 1.
Soon after the morning break, they brought their half-century and looked to stay a long time in the middle. However, Ben Stokes double strike in the space of nine balls, the tide of the contest turned. Brathwaite got a slightly rectangular to a delivery came, and edges on the piece of paper. Darren Bravo, who had marked his return to Test cricket after more than two years do not survive long enough to go early in the lap a slower delivery from Stokes - who the game was his 50-Test - and getting caught. Windies were reduced from 126 for 1 to 128 3.
A brief rain interruption brought a premature end to the second session, with hope and Roston Chase, you will see no further damage.
However, in the last session of the day, the hope of another half-century brought even more only to fall soon after Anderson. The veteran pacer nagging line outside the offstump paid off finally, as the hope went, poking at a delivery to give an easy catch for the 'keeper.
Once again, Windies found themselves with the rebuilding of their inings. Even as England bowlers were disciplined with their line and lengths, there was little support for you to induce prospects. Shimron Hetmyer broke away from the brand of cotton candy that was offered, and went after the bowlers. While the batting on three, cut outside offstump and offered an easy way to Jos Buttler erased on the cover, only for it to be. Batting on 3 at this point, Hetmyer took complete advantage of the opportunity and posted 56 at the end of the day, including one in which he slid Adil Rashid for six and followed it to the border by the cover of the region.
However, with that Chase does not stand up to the majority of the strike in the sixth wicket, England has so many opportunities to cash in on. The duo stitched a 66-run-partnership to revive the innings, before England took the second new ball changed the complexion of the game, with Anderson as the wrecker-in-chief.
In just his second over with the new ball, he had to Chase to go after an outs winger to give Joe Root a regulation catch at slips. Soon after, Roston, was to make the Chase reversed, by a legcutter, awkwardly bounced and had him slipping to the edge, while repel. Jason holder will be offered a return catch and Kemar Roach came across outside off in the final over of the day, cap Windies' troubled past hour.
In just 6.3 overs, soon after taking the new balls, the Windies by 4 wickets lost runs in the return of 24.
