Root rescues England again on Day 1


WI vs ENG Live Score – West Indies vs England 2nd Test LIVE: England captain Joe Root will once again have a task on his hands as England survived a difficult session in the WI vs ENG 2nd Test at Barbados. Opting to bat first, the visitors were off to the worst possible start after Zak Crawley was dismissed for a duck, but Joe Root and Alex Lees played out the rest of the session. Follow West Indies vs England LIVE Updates with InsideSport.IN 

Jayden Seales took a wicket in his second over but England otherwise survived the first session unscathed to reach 47 for one at lunch on day one of the second Test against West Indies in Barbados on Wednesday.

Fast bowler Seales removed England opener Zak Crawley for a seven-ball duck, coaxing the 24-year-old into getting a faint edge on a rising delivery, which was caught by wicketkeeper Joshua Da Silva. West Indies bowled well to keep the scoring rate in check on a placid wicket, but will rue a missed opportunity to send Root back to the dressing room.

The England captain benefited from a huge slice of luck on 23, when a Jason Holder delivery appeared to nick his bat and carry into Da Silva’s hands, but West Indies, who had earlier wasted a review, decided against another one.

The opening Test in North Sound, Antigua, ended in a draw and West Indies fielded an unchanged team for the second match. England made two changes, with pace bowlers Matt Fisher and Saqib Mahmood making their Test debuts after coming in for Craig Overton and Mark Wood. Overton fell ill overnight, while Wood suffered an elbow injury during the first Test.
