England declared on 466-6 in their first innings, with Jonny Bairstow finishing unbeaten on 106 and Dan Lawrence hitting 83; the home side reached 48-2 by the close of play, with Jack Leach claiming the only wicket along with a Craig Overton run out
Jonny Bairstow hit a fine, unbeaten century on the second day of England’s Test warm-up game against a Cricket West Indies President’s XI in Antigua.
The home side reached 48-2 by the close, with the first of England’s two breakthroughs – Jeremy Solozano for 17 – coming courtesy of a Craig Overton run out off his own bowling, before Jack Leach bowled Shayne Moseley (20), beating the batter’s booming drive.
Bairstow was the fifth England batter to pass fifty in the innings, following Zak Crawley (62), Alex Lees (65), Root (54) and Dan Lawrence (83). Woakes too would surely have followed suit on his 33rd birthday but was left unbeaten on 49 when Root called his side in.
