He began forming a solid partnership alongside Shai Hope, the pair who anchored West Indies' first innings, with 236 runs required for an astonishing victory.

Hope (118no) became the first batsman to score a century in each innings of a first-class match at the ground in 127 years as the resurgent tourists, beaten inside three days in the first Test, chased down their target of 322 in 91.2 overs to claim Windies' first Test win in England in 17 years.

Beginning the evening needing 123 for victory as the floodlights punctured the gloom in West Yorkshire, Shai Hope easily survived a frivilous appeal after being struck on the pad by Broad.

West Indies coach Stuart Law praised his side for the way they responded to their humiliating first Test defeat by England to level the series with a stunning five-wicket win at Headingley on Tuesday. Hope came in at 35 for three wickets early in the day and was unbeaten on 147 at the close.

It was not until the stroke of tea that West Indies lost their third wicket when Brathwaite edged off-spinner Moeen Ali to Stokes at slip. Brathwaite's 180-ball innings, including 12 fours, meant the opener had batted for more than 10 hours in the match.

Their nerves were settled somewhat when Chase was caught brilliantly by substitute fielder Mason Crane, diving away to his left, at mid-on off Woakes.

Hopefully it will be a night session. "If I am in semifinals, I prefer to play against another [player ]" Nadal told the NY Post . The lone down side is the two are on the same side of the draw, meaning they would have to square off in the semifinals.

Judge rules Texas voter ID law still too restrictive
Ramos' 2014 ruling that the law was purposefully discriminatory was appealed to the United States 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Those voters could present documents such as utility bills, bank statements or paychecks to confirm their identification.

Estwick said by then, the workload had begun to take its toll especially on the Windies seamers and there was little to give as they searched for the important breakthrough.

Hope took the bulk of the plaudits after becoming the first man ever to make two tons in a first-class game at Headingley.

Anderson came within an inch of claiming England's second wicket only for Brathwaite's edge to fall short of Westley at third slip but soon did bag another in the most fortunate of circumstances.

He was also the first West Indies batsman to score hundreds in both innings of a Test in England since Gordon Greenidge at Old Trafford in 1976. Moeen failed with an lbw review on Shai Hope, who made his century in 175 balls and was also dropped by Cook on 106. Jermaine Blackwood, on the other hand, wanted to win in the grand manner, shed off his helmet in an act of defiance and charged down the pitch.

"(Hope) played exceptionally well - on the fifth day, against high-quality bowling, it was a great knock", said Root, whose two fifties in the match were eclipsed by Brathwaite and Hope.
