LIVE | England vs West Indies, 2nd Test, Day 1: Live Updates from Manchester

England vs West Indies, 2nd Test, Day 1: England posted 207/3 at stumps on Day 1 of the second Test against West Indies in Manchester. Sibley, a right-hand opener content with just sticking around with his cautious style, was joined by Stokes midway through the second session and they plotted their way through 50.4 overs to the close at Old Trafford. Sibley was on 86 not out — his second-highest test score in just his eighth match — and Stokes was unbeaten on 59. Leading 1-0 in the three-match series after a win in Southampton last week, the West Indies never quite lost control on the opening day's play as they began their bid to clinch a first series in England in 32 years.
