ENG vs WI 2nd Test: England begin post-Anderson era at Trent Bridge

ENG vs WI 2nd Test: England begin post-Anderson era at Trent Bridge

The legendary career of James Anderson came to a fitting end at Lord’s when England thrashed West Indies by an innings and 114 runs to finish off the game in under 3 days to take the lead in the series. Ben Stokes and his men will now aim to clinch the series at Trent Bridge as the second Test against the West Indies starts on July 18, Thursday.


There are some celebrations in order on the first day as the pavilion end will be renamed in honour of the legendary Stuart Broad. But the focus for Stokes and his men will remain the same as they look to climb up the World Test Championship rankings and get some valuable points. But West Indies cannot be written off just yet.

Kraigg Brathwaite’s side found themselves in a similar spot down under earlier this year when they beat Australia at Gabba to level the series. They will be looking for a similar turnaround in Nottingham as they look to stop England’s momentum.
