England will look to make amends when they take on the West Indies in the second One-Day international (ODI) at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua on Sunday.
The West Indies defeated England by 15 runs in the first on Friday after the visitors squandered an excellent platform that had put them in position to take the lead in the three-match series. Replying to the home side’s competitive total of 269 for six, England were restricted to 254 for six after cruising along merrily at 180 for two in the 37th over.
Michael Lumb‘s fluent 106 on ODI debut, only the second England player after Dennis Amiss to achieve the feat, and an opening partnership of 96 with fellow first-timer Moeen Ali (44), seemed to ensure that most of the hard work was done in pursuit of a morale-boosting victory following the harrowing tour of Australia, AFP reported.
