Hope Leads West Indies To Stunning Win Over England
Shai Hope led the West Indies to an astonishing five-wicket win over England in the second test on Tuesday as he became the first batsman to score hundreds in both innings of a first-class match at Headingley.
The West Indies, set 322 to win, finished on 322 for five with Hope making 118 not out his second hundred of the match after his first-innings 147.
The 23-year-old hope had not made a hundred in any of his previous 11 test matches.
Victory gave West Indies their first test match win in England since 2000 and saw them level the three-match series at 1-1 after they suffered a humiliating innings and 209-run defeat inside three days in the first test at Edgbaston.
It was also, excluding fixtures against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, just the West Indies' fourth test win away from home in 88 matches spanning 20 years.
