Cook's epic 243 inflicts pain on Windies: 1st Test, Day 2 (Birmingham)

Alastair Cook’s chanceless 243 maintained England’s dominant position against the West Indies.

Resuming on 153, Cook reached his 4th Test double century during a fourth-wicket stand of 162 with Dawid Malan (65) before England declared at 514 for eight.

Kraigg Brathwaite was caught behind for for a duck off Anderson before the tourists closed at 44 for one due to rain.

West Indies 44 for 1 (K Hope 25*, Powell 18*) trail England 514 for 8 dec (Cook 243, Root 136, Malan 65) by 470 runs.
