Riding on an unbeaten century from opener Kraigg Brathwaite, West Indies signed off Day 4 on a high after England took a massive 165-run lead in the first innings of the second Test match in Grenada on Friday.

Earlier, Joe Root (182*) missed his double century for not seeking support from the other end, as England got all-out for 464 runs against West Indies’ first-innings total of 299 runs.

In their quest to ebb the lead and fight back in the match, the hosts lost Devon Smith (2) early on in the second innings. However, Kraigg Brathwaite (101*) and Darren Bravo (69) exhibited some stellar batting skills to stitch a constructive 142-run partnership for the second wicket.

Following Barvo’s dismissal, Brathwaite continued to frustrate the English bowlers along with Marlon Samuels (22*), as West Indies ended the day at 202-2 with an aggregate lead of 37 runs.

With England yet to bowl out the hosts before batting in the second innings, it would be safe to say that the match is likely to end in a draw.
