Pope, Buttler pull England from rut and then onto commanding position against West Indies in decider

Ollie Pope and Jos Buttler made their first massive scores of the series in placing on an unbeaten stand of 136 runs to rebuild England’s innings against the West Indies and put the hosts on high on day one of many deciding take a look at at Old Trafford on Friday.

England recovered from 122-Four simply earlier than tea to shut on 258-4, with Pope on 91 as he goes in search of his second take a look at century and Buttler on 56.

Both gamers had been under strain to ship in the third take a look at after underwhelming performances thus far in this series. Buttler, in explicit, is feeling the warmth from Ben Foakes for the wicketkeeper position and a primary half-century in exams since September justified the selectors’ backing of the limited-overs specialist.

Buttler smashed recalled spinner Rahkeem Cornwall for 2 sixes in the identical over — one over deep midwicket and the opposite over long-on — however in any other case stayed measured and largely restrained in a 120-ball knock. His one and solely take a look at century got here two years in the past against India.

Pope, whose highest rating in this series was 12, compiled his runs faster — a rarity for a batsman alongside Buttler — and struck 11 fours earlier than dangerous light stopped play for the day about 10 minutes earlier than the scheduled finish in Manchester.

Before Pope and Buttler got here collectively, the knowledge of England deploying a truncated batting lineup and together with 4 quick bowlers together with a spinner was being questioned.

Dom Sibley (0) departed off the sixth ball of the day after taking part in throughout Kemar Roach and getting trapped lbw, and captain Joe Root, trying a fast single, was run out by Roston Chase’s direct throw for 17 simply earlier than lunch.

When Ben Stokes — promoted to No. 4 and taking part in as a specialist batsman — was bowled by means of the gate by Roach for 20, England was 92-3 and its batting lineup was abruptly trying wafer skinny.

Rory Burns (57) then edged Chase to slide, the place the burly Cornwall took an excellent, instinctive one-handed catch.

England responded effectively, although, and moved into a powerful position to win a series that’s poised at 1-1.

The Windies, who gained the primary take a look at in Southampton, want to seize a take a look at series in England for the primary time since 1988.

Roach has 2-56 off 18.Four overs, and wants yet one more wicket for 200 in exams.
