  • Kraigg Brathwaite combined with Shai Hope for a 246-run partnership for the fourth wicket

The second test match between England and West Indies will be played on red ball as it day match.

England hero Ben Stokes hailed Sheffield's Joe Root as the best player in the world after he equalled a world record on his home ground at Headingley yesterday.

Holder's team received with plenty of flak on both sides of the Atlantic after last week's capitulation at Edgbaston, where England won by an innings and 209 runs and took 19 wickets in a single day to wrap up victory with two days to spare.

Currently, the host lead the series with a 1-0 ratio out of three matches.

But in the context of where England were when he came to the crease, this was perhaps Stokes' most important Test century.

It left West Indies 296 for five, a lead of 38, and they took that beyond 50 before the close to take a stranglehold in this match.

But that was the least the West Indies deserved thanks to a tone-setting burst from Roach and Gabriel.

It took a spirited show by Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope that saw West Indies take control over England in Headingley Test.

Dunford's visit follows an exchange of threats over the weekend between President Trump and North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un. He also holds a news conference on Thursday to mark his 100th day in office.

Tom Westley lasted only 11 balls, his innings ending when he was trapped plumb lbw by Roach, and England slumped to 37 for three shortly after the hour mark when Mark Stoneman was caught by wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich when his attempted drive off Roach found the inside edge.

The wicket swung the day back towards the visitors who were celebrating again when Jonny Bairstow was caught low down at second slip by Holder off Gabriel.

Instead, nearly 10 overs and 35 more runs passed before Broad forced one through Brathwaite's defences and parted the stumps.

Woakes, who on form is a better batsman than Roland-Jones, is set to act as a support seamer behind James Anderson and Stuart Broad.

"There's talent and a lot of desire in the West Indies side, a lot of want to prove people wrong and we don't want to be at the other end of that", the Yorkshire player told BBC Sport. He only bowled four overs out of the first 52, despite nearly taking a wicket with his fourth ball and seeing Hope edge on the bounce to slip with the last delivery before lunch.

Hope senior was then caught brilliantly by a diving Root at second slip as West Indies were reduced to 35 for three.

His recall was the only change to the England team that played at Edgbaston where Alastair Cook s double century and a hundred from England captain Joe Root established a commanding position cemented by Anderson and Broad. The Bajan got there in 189 balls and it was an innings that guided West Indies to 206 for three by tea, a deficit of just 52.

Arriving at 71-4, Stokes counter-attacked in thrilling fashion, reaching his sixth Test hundred off 122 balls.
