Stunning Hope ton downs England for thrilling win: 2nd Test, Day 5 (Leeds)

Shai Hope scored historic twin hundreds as the Windies triumphed over expectation in an enthralling final day to overcome a stiff victory target of 322 set by England.

Hope (118 not out) and Brathwaite (95) laid the platform for the stunning win, achieved with just 28 balls to spare.

Alistair Cook was the villain as he dropped two simple catches at first slip to let the Windies off the hook. This upset win saw West Indies level the three-match series at 1-1 as they recorded their first test win in England since 2000.

West Indies 427 (Hope 147, Brathwaite 134, Anderson 5-76) and 322 for 5 (Hope 118*, Brathwaite 95) beat England 258 (Stokes 100, Gabriel 4-51, Roach 4-71) and 490 (Moeen 84, Root 72) by five wickets.

Amazing chase. Reminds me of Windies in the 1980s.
