    Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the 2nd Test between England and West Indies. It was a slow and steady Day 1 but it was the hosts who had the upper hand. Sibley has been patient and will look to continue to keep his calm and composure and do the same. Stokes too played a very disciplined innings and showed his maturity. The pair have added 126 runs and would look to build on it. West Indies, on the other hand, will not be disheartened as they haven’t leaked a lot of runs and can begin the day with the new ball. The tourists would look to put on a better show with the second new ball and look to strike early and end this stand. What do we have in store on Day 2?

    … Day 2, Session 1 …

  • 12:02 AM IST

    The day though began brilliantly for the visitors, they won the toss, elected to bowl under overcast conditions, got two early wickets, dismissed Root but after that, their bowlers have had no answers to the stubbornness of Stokes and Sibley. To add to that, their star from the first Test, Gabriel, did not seem to be at his best and was struggling with fitness. Despite all of that though, the Windies would know a couple of quick wickets on Day 2 and they are right back in this. However, another good partnership will see them fall well behind in the game. An important first session awaits. Do join us at 1100 local (1000 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

    England’s day quite easily! They have set themselves a base to score a big first innings total courtesy a gritty knock from Sibley and a patient one from Ben Stokes. The unbeaten hundred run stand between the two has ensured it is the English who would head in Day 2 as the happier side. The opener is nearing his ton whereas, England’s vice-captain will be eager to score one.
