England vow to be 'brutally honest' after shock West Indies defeat

England's Stuart Broad drops catch but runs out Windies' Kyle Hope for a duck The records broken in epic Windies win

West Indies pulled off an astonishing chase at Headingley on Tuesday to beat England by five wickets in the second Test to level the three-match series at one-all.

It signalled a coming-of-age for Hope, who averaged just 18.61 in his previous 21 Test innings, but lined up England's attack superbly to follow up his first-innings 147 - his maiden century - with a hundred off 175 balls.

With the West Indies in cruise control, England were beginning to worry as the tourists were edging ever closer to victory.

England captain Joe Root was left to lament the hosts' below-par first-innings 258 on his Yorkshire home ground.

With England having set a formidable target - the Windies started the day needing 317 with all wickets intact - on a turning pitch and under cloud cover, the two young batsmen negotiated their testing examinations superbly.

However, middle-order batsman Shai Hope emerged as a real star for his side as she smashed two consecutive centuries in the Test. Only Australia, with 404 for 3 back in 1948, had made more to win in the fourth innings of a Headingley Test.

Along with fellow Bajan Kraigg Brathwaite's fine batting - he added 95 to his first-innings century - and the evident reawakened spirit in the team, this was an emphatic answer to Windies greats like paceman Curtly Ambrose who had called their Edgbaston performance "pathetic".

Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne to Wednesday on Saturday
According to White, Rousey is now concentrating on her upcoming wedding this weekend, August 26, 2017. Browne is the 13th ranked heavy weight fighter in the UFC and now holds an 18-7-1 all-time record.

Moeen Ali was operating from the Kirkstall Lane End.

Brathwaite s 180-ball innings, including 12 fours, meant the opener had batted for more than 10 hours in the match.

Chase benefited from a Ben Stokes overthrow to the tune of five runs, but fell for 30 when substitute fielder Mason Crane claimed a great diving catch at mid-on.

Estwick said by then, the workload had begun to take its toll especially on the Windies seamers and there was little to give as they searched for the important breakthrough. So when he came out here and scored the first one I told him to remember it and he came out and scored his second one so a lot of credit must go to him.

They ultimately took the game away from the West Indians after tea on the fourth day. Soon after, Hope reached his hundred and the pair carried on without much fuss - although Blackwood hit Broad for another six - to within two runs of victory when Blackwood tried to finish it in style off Moeen but was stumped for 41.

The final match will now be played at the iconic Lord's from September 7.
