- Second Test, day one: England 244-3
- Root scores 25th Test century as home side miss chances
At the ground where the names of the great Barbados and West Indies cricketers adorn the stands, Joe Root furthered his claims to go down as one of their English equivalents, finessing a 25th Test century for his most enjoyable day of the winter.
As the two sides strolled off at the close of day one of this second Test, the visitors – and the travelling supporters who have taken over Kensington Oval – were the happier. Root was unbeaten on 119 from 246 balls and England were well placed on 244 for three.
