A four-for from fast-bowler Stuart Broad and a flawless opening stand saw England take a commanding position on Day 2 of the second Test match against West Indies in Grenada on Wednesday.

Earlier, resuming from overnight score of 188-5, West Indies lost a few quick wickets, as they were reduced to 247-9 in a jiffy, even as Marlon Samuels (103) completed his century. A 52-run stand for the last wicket between Devendra Bishoo (30) and Shannon Gabriel (20) ensured that the hosts amass 299 runs.

For England, Stuart Broad emerged as the wrecker-in-chief with a four-for, while James Anderson and Chris Jordan also chipped in with a brace each.

England 74-0 (26)

In response, England openers – Alastair Cook (37*) and Jonathan Trott (32*) – both showed signs of regaining form by finishing unbeaten as the visitors were cruising at 74-0 before stumps, trailing West Indies by 225 runs in the first innings.
