ENG Vs WI: Amidst the threat of Corona virus, the West Indies team managed to win thanks to Blackwood’s 95-run knock in the International Test match played at Southampton 117 days later. West Indies beat England by 4 wickets in the first match of the three-match series to take a 1-0 lead in the series. West Indies had a 200-run challenge to win on the last day of the first Test, which the team achieved by losing 6 wickets. However, West Indies fast bowler Grabial, who took 9 wickets in the match, was adjudged Man of the Match.

During the entire Test match, a great game performance was seen by the West Indies. England won the toss and decided to bat first in the match, but due to rain, only 17.4 overs were played on the first day. West Indies stopped England for 204 runs in the first innings thanks to captain Holder taking 6 wickets for 42 runs. West Indies scored an impressive 318 runs in batting and achieved a significant lead of 114 runs over England. Ben Stokes took four wickets for England.

England tried to return to the match in the second innings. England scored 313 runs in their second innings and set a target of 200 runs to win in front of the West Indies. West Indies had a very poor start and the team lost their three wickets for just 27 runs. It seemed at one time that the England team would be able to name itself by tea time.

Blackwood’s last day

But after three wickets fell, Blackwood made a crucial partnership of 73 runs for the fourth wicket with Chase. However, Chase returned to the pavilion after scoring 37 runs. Blackwood then shared a 68-run partnership with Dowrich for the fifth wicket. Stokes tried to bring England back into the match by dismissing Dowrich for 20 runs.

However, when the West Indies team was just 11 runs out of victory, Blackwood was dismissed by scoring 95 runs. Had Blackwood managed to score 5 more runs, it would have been the second century of his Test career. However, Captain Taylor gave the West Indies the victory while playing an innings of 14 not out.

England bowlers tried their best to bring the match into their court on the last day. For England, Archer took three, Stokes took two and Wood took one wicket. The last two matches of the series will be played at The Old Trafford ground in Manchester.
