Stokes keeps England in touch
A battling century from Ben Stokes rescued England on the first day of the second Test at Headingley but West Indies still dismissed Joe Root’s side for 258 on a much better day for the tourists.
Stokes was eventually dismissed for exactly 100 – his sixth Test century – with Kemar Roach (4-71) and Shannon Gabriel (4-51) the main wicket-takers as West Indies put their first Test rout behind them.
Their batsmen then finished on 19-1, with Kraigg Brathwaite on 13 and nightwatchman Devendra Bishoo on one.
The day would have had an even better had they held their catches but Stokes was dropped twice, on nine and 98, and Root, who went on to score 59, also put down on eight.
