West Indies were bowled out for 427, giving them a lead of 169 runs against England on Day 3 of the 2nd Test at Headingley. James Anderson was the lone bright spot for the hosts as he took a five-wicket haul. However, Mark Stoneman’s fifty and Joe Root’s gritty knock helped the hosts erase the deficit as the hosts finished on 171/3 at stumps. Earlier, magnificent centuries by Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope had put West Indies in a commanding position on Saturday. Brathwaite was joined by Hope during a tricky morning session for the visitors when they were 35 for three in reply to England’s 258, and the pair shared a 246-run partnership as West Indies, written off after a humiliating innings-and-209-runs defeat in the first test, reached stumps on 329-5, a lead of 71.
