Cook and Root at it again

  • Tom Westley made only eight before he was trapped in front by Miguel Cummins at Edgbaston

On an easy-paced surface offering predictable bounce, the two centurions were barely troubled - their partnership topping the previous best for the third wicket in Edgbaston Tests, an alliance of 227 between Robin Smith and Alec Stewart for England against Pakistan in 1992.

Broad's new-ball partner, James Anderson, is England's top test bowler on 492 wickets and could become the sixth player to reach 500 in this series. Powell, though, was run out by England's all-time leading wicket-taker in the longest format.

Resuming on 44 for 1 this afternoon, the Windies lost the remaining nine wickets in their first innings for 124 runs to be bowled out for 168 just after the lunch interval.

Well, this innings and 209-run demolition of a feeble West Indies inside three days was anything but. Only Jermaine Blackwood, left stranded on 79 not out, showed any fight.

"I needed that to be fair, I didn't look like scoring a run against the South Africans", he said with disarming honesty. After sleepwalking through a first session that was utterly devoid of drama, England shipped a glut of middle-order wickets, including the risky Stokes and the in-form Jonny Bairstow, in their attempt to raise the tempo as the declaration drew nigh.

West Indies captain Jason Holder believes his pacemen can help the "huge underdogs" make life uncomfortable for England during their upcoming Test series.

Their bowling attack, spearheaded by Shannon Gabriel, who head coach Stuart Law reckons is the fastest bowler out there, has been supplemented by the return of Kemar Roach, back and firing off the back of an exceptional first class season for Barbados.

But before falling lbw on DRS to Roston Chase (4-113) - pushing to leg and missing - he had spent nearly nine-and-a-half hours at the crease this time and hit 33 fours from 407 balls.

By then, the Windies had managed just 200 runs for the loss of 13 wickets in the day.

But the session, and the match so far for that matter, had belonged to Cook, whose departure deep into the tenth hour of his innings triggered an immediate declaration at the end of West Indies' most effective mini-session to date. Incidentally, Broad's strike rate is identical to Botham's, 56.9.

Anderson had set the tone in the first over of the day when his short ball had Kyle Hope caught at gully in the very first over.

He was bowled by Anderson off the inside edge after 11 score-less deliveries.

In this Test, their highest stand was of 45.

But Cook was magnificent, hitting 33 fours before finally falling lbw to offspinner Roston Chase after a successful video review by the West Indies. The hope duo, Kyle and Shai, were cleaned up by Toby Roland-Jones and Ben Stokes respectively for contributions which hardly mattered given the mammoth West Indies have to chase.
