ENG vs WI 2nd Test Day 1 Highlights – 31 January 2019
2nd Test, England tour of West Indies 2019, Watch WI v Eng Cricket highlights today – Second test day one from Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua (West Indies) Thursday 31st January 2019. Two days out from the Test, there was still a fair amount of live grass on the wicket, but with a bit of a haircut and another day of Caribbean heat, it ought to be a fairly dry surface come Thursday morning. It might prove to be a touch quicker than in 2015 but in essence, it is a good batting wicket.
Keaton Jennings has paid the price for his terrible display in the first Test, with Denly to make his Test debut, almost ten years on from his first appearance in England’s one-day set-up. Broad is also slated for a comeback, with England seemingly committed to a solitary spinner this time around – Adil Rashid has been left out of a 12-man squad, with Jack Leach coming into contention.
West Indies win the toss and will bowl.
Jason Holder takes the bold option. His team are unchanged, with Shannon Gabriel and Shane Dowrich fit after niggles. Holder made his maiden hundred at this ground four years ago, batting his team to a draw on the final day, but he says there’s “a bit more grass coverage” this time. “Hopefully our fast bowlers can get it in the right areas and get some wickets,” he says. Joe Root would also have decided to bowl – it is a pea-green deck – but calls it “an opportunity to go out and make a big first innings score and put pressure on them”. Two changes for England, Broad and Denly the players to come in. “One of our big strengths as a group is our character,” Root says, after their first Test hammering. “This is another opportunity for use to show that.”
