Stuart Law proud after Windies rally to beat England

After being in control for the first three days, West Indies is now up against it and needs the second-highest total to win a test at Headingley, and the highest since Don Bradman's Australia team made 404-3 batting last in 1948. Broad tried in vain to catch a powerful shot from Brathwaite and ended up inadvertently deflecting the ball onto the stumps at the non-striker's end with his thigh, meaning that Kyle Hope was run out for an unfortunate duck.

Hope top-scored with 147 runs in the Windies' first-innings 427, putting on 246 for the fourth wicket with fellow centurion Kraigg Brathwaite.

Beginning the evening needing 123 for victory as the floodlights punctured the gloom in West Yorkshire, Shai Hope easily survived a frivilous appeal after being struck on the pad by Broad.

Having seen Moeen Ali drop a sitter on the second day, Broad was then more than a little relieved to see Ben Stokes take a catch at fourth slip to remove Kieran Powell.

The West Indies continued to dominate with the bat as Hope and Jermaine Blackwood put together a 74-run partnership to leave the West Indies just two runs away from victory.

Moeen was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets, while Broad and Woakes claimed one wicket each.

The third and final Test, also the series decider, starts at Lord's on Thursday 7 September. Fifth day, on a used wicket against high-quality bowling, great knock [from Shai Hope]. "(He's got) plenty of courage, plenty of character and plenty of determination". I think it's just a matter of belief, really, self-belief - trusting his own technique and trusting his own ability. I urged no-one to move from their seats, and it was nerve-wracking in the end. I'm extremely proud of these two guys, they worked very hard and it's paying off. We have the fight, belief and players to do it. It's about delivering on the big stage. I, for one, was saying they should be playing against Ireland, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe and they bounced back with a performance like that.

I hope Root doesn't get castigated for declaring, I thought it was an excellent declaration - leaving him six overs last night and I thought that was the way to go. I know within myself that I should be performing much better than I am, so I was just pleased to get over the line. Even once the game had been won, he looked determined to be there at the end and by then, he had batted for ten hours and 36 minutes in the game.
