In the England tour of West Indies, 3rd Test series, England beats Windies by 232 runs restoring some pride claiming 1-2 scoreline at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St. Lucia.
England captain Joe Root, Mark Wood’s (5) return to form reinforcing as a strike bowling option and the pace bowler James Anderson lift the home side to top order with three quick wickets. Anderson also claimed three sixers in the Test.
In the 2nd innings, while England was batting, the fast bowler Shannon Gabriel and England captain Root had some controversies that were caught on stump microphone during the on-field exchange and the umpire laid a charge against Gabriel under Article 2.13 of the ICC’s Code of Conduct.
