Captain Kraigg Brathwaite and the recalled Shai Hope out on 24 in the first innings while Brathwaite and Kieran Powell – a concussion substitute for Nkrumah Bonner – managed only 12 in the second innings.
Over their last 18 Test innings, West Indies have scraped only two half-century stands, with the highest being 66 in the second Test against Bangladesh last February.
Shai Hope was recalled to the opening position but failed in both innings of the first Test.

“That is one of the things we’ve been trying to work on very desperately because if you watch back a lot of times we win Test matches against the top teams, we have good opening stands,” Simmons pointed out.
“Against England the last time [in 2019], we had good opening stands between John Campbell and Kraigg. That has not been happening and we’re working very hard on that.
“It’s disappointing because when you look at the last seven Test hundreds scored by an opener, I think they’re all scored by Kraigg.”

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.

Yesterday McCoy picked up his 1st wicket with a 140kph delivery. He then got his 2nd with a back-of-the-hand slower-delivery (111kph), before getting his final, in the ultimate over of the inn, with yet another slower-delivery (109kph) - in an over he gave away just three runs.

People have been saying gayle's low scoring is due to the fact that he's not opening
Do you think otherwise?
