England drop Woakes for 3rd Windies Test

  • England batsman Dawid Malan has hit half-centuries in two of his last three Test innings

West Indies have failed to beat England in their last seven Tests at Lord's (L5, D2) and the last time they emerged victorious at the venue was in 1988. They moved lethargic, slow.

It is well-known that the two West Indies legends, Lara and Holding, are not the best of friends.During the MCC lecture, Lara spoke about how he was "embarrassed" by the unsportsmanlike conduct of the West Indies in the 1980s and 90s.

"I'm immensely proud of the boys.to come out and produce what they did was an incredible turnaround", the Australian said.

India is likely to begin 2018 in South Africa and is slotted to play four Tests and limited overs series.

The tour featured several unruly moments, including pace bowler Colin Croft shoulder-charging Kiwi umpire Fred Goodall as he ran into bowl in one of the tests. It was dark and Graham Gooch had to call his troops from the field and the West Indies grabbed a draw.

"As for having a big effect on cricket, I'm very glad about it".

Like England their top-order has a number of players who could be seen as passengers but coach Stuart Law will be hoping that persistence pays off as it did with the younger of the Hope brothers.

There will be no immediate follow-up to England's inaugural day-night Test - at Edgbaston last month - against opponents hailing from a time zone which would have made broadcast of floodlit matches from this country less than appealing.

Michael Holding has come in off the long run to respond to Brian Lara.

England advertised last week for a new bowling coach and it would be odd if Anderson was not consulted on a replacement given his vast experience, although he has firmly ruled himself out of the running for the job.

"Now we've reached Lord's - the home of cricket - and everyone is excited and talking about what could be a great end to the series". "We thought we could build on that and close out the series at Headingley. But that didn't happen".

Anderson is just three scalps short of becoming just the sixth man in history to claim a 500th Test victim and is expected to pass that figure in the series decider at Lord's, which starts on Thursday. Quoting a text message he had received from Sachin Tendulkar, Lara referred to it as "a success the entire world needed".
