First Test: Windies fight back after Cook plunders third double

England take the lead in the three-match series, with the second Test beginning at Headingley on Friday.

Anderson then ran out Kieran Powell (20) to begin the collapse before he bowled Roston Chase for a duck leaving the West Indies 47/4.

After Cook got off the mark first ball, fellow left-hander Stoneman's first two scoring shots in Test cricket were both fours before he perished without adding another run.

If that wasn't embarrassing enough for the West Indies, Andrew Caddick took four wickets in an over, three of them coming with proper in-swinging yorkers. But with replays indicating the ball would have hit leg stump, Cook's marathon effort of more than nine hours and his first Test century in 17 innings was finally at an end.

Broad's figures in the second innings mirrored Anderson's from the first as he was the pick of the bowlers in England's victory charge.

Jermaine Blackwood was 79 not out - the only score in the innings above 25.

"I think people are writing the West Indies off too early", team manager Joel Garner said, "and it could be at their own peril".

The Lancashire paceman took two for six in four overs in Saturday's first session, with the West Indies losing seven wickets for 89 runs in 23 overs before lunch - all without the problems of batting under floodlights against the pink ball.

Dolphins reportedly sign LB Rey Maualuga to one-year deal
Considering that is how Miami was expected to use its linebackers heading into training camp, the signing seems like a solid fit. In a corresponding move, the Dolphins also placed wide receiver Isaiah Ford on injured reserve.

Broad subsequently proceeded to clean bowl Shane Dowrich, which was a historic moment as he surpassed Sir Ian Botham's tally of 383 wickets to become England's second-highest wicket-taker in Test history.

After England opted to enforce the follow-on, the West Indies' downfall continued, starting with the early wicket of Powell, who was sent packing by Anderson for 10 runs.

With the Ashes just three months away, there remains considerable uncertainty over the make-up of England's top five, but Root and his predecessor as captain were able to provide reassuring stability in a stand of 248 that helped the host reach 348-3. Kraigg Brathwaite, the only front-line batsman not to be dismissed twice in the day, battled gamely for 40 before missing a turning ball from Moeen on the stroke of Tea which was given out LBW on review. The West Indians were the kings of test cricket in the 1970s and 80s, and have produced lasting greats like Garfield Sobers, Viv Richards and, more recently, Brian Lara, as well as a once-endless supply of world-beating fast bowlers.

On the resumption, he produced a sharp, rearing delivery off a length that had Kyle Hope helplessly steering the ball to Stokes at gully to set the tone for the day.

From Brazil: Barcelona won't convince Liverpool, Coutinho is staying at the club
Barca's season has been thrown into turmoil by Neymar's world record €222 million move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month. With so little time left in the transfer window to reinvest any money received, it's easy to see why.

Rarely in the course of his 145-Test career can Cook have been less challenged by either the conditions or the opponents. Cook brought his ninth half century against West Indies in the last over before lunch during which England were 108 for two.
