England vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 4: Broad’s new-ball rampage leaves England with slim hope of victory on final day July 20, 2020

ISLAMABAD-England pace bowler Stuart Broad starred with the new ball on the fourth day in Manchester to give his side a slim chance of victory heading into the final day.

Starting off the day on 32/1 after the entire third day was washed out, West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite and nightwatchman Alzarri Joseph converted their 16-run partnership into a 54-run stand before Joseph was caught by Ollie Pope at short leg off the bowling of Dom Bess for 32.

Brathwaite and Shai Hope added 53 runs to the score before Hope was caught behind off the bowling of Sam Curran for 25.

Brathwaite and Shamarh Brooks kept the runs flowing with a 76-run stand before Brathwaite was caught and bowled by Ben Stokes for 75, which came off 165 balls and included eight boundaries.

Brooks became the first person to fall victim to Broad’s burst with the new ball as he was trapped lbw for 68, which came off 137 deliveries and included 11 boundaries.

Broad then clean bowled Jermaine Blackwood and removed Shane Dowrich in quick succession.
