Spectacular Hope gives Windies historic win📹http://v.duta.us/NJnwOgAA

England 268 & 490/9 decl. (Moeen Ali 84, Joe Root 72; Roston Chase 3-86) lost to Windies 427 & 322/5 (Kraigg Brathwaite 95, Shai Hope 118*; Moeen Ali 2-76) by 5 wickets.


It was a brilliant final day of what has been a brilliant Test match at Headingley. While there are threats to the longest format of the game, spectacles like the one seen in Leeds over the past five days prove that it can still enthral and entertain with the best of them. All four results were still possible heading in to the final hour of the day but Shai Hope's brilliant unbeaten century, his second in the match, led the Windies to a historic five-wicket victory.

It was a fine recovery from the tourists after the horror show at Edgbaston in the first Test that they lost by an innings and 209 runs. It was Windies' only fourth Test victory away from home, excluding Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, in their past 88 overseas Tests and their first in England since 2000. It is also the second-highest successful chase ever in Test matches at Headingley and now gives them a chance to win the series at Lord's.
