West Indies 2nd innings was planned beautifully rather their opening pair did not contribute much. Shai Hope and Shamarh Brooks also failed to scored runs. Roston Chase and Jermaine Blackwood took the responsibility and waited at the wicket for quite long time. Blackwood just missed his hundred by 5 runs as he scored 95 runs. Jason Holder was not out with Campbell as they won by 4 wickets.

England bowlers tried hard to stop the West Iindies batsmen but couldn’t as Archer took 3 Wood took 1 and Stokes 2 wickets each. It was a great game of cricket after 117 days of wait. Hope to see all the matches left in the series in this exciting manner. #RaiseTheBat is England Cricket board’s tribute for the key workers who are working tirelessly to keep everyone healthy. #RaiseTheBat is thus the name of this series.
