Cricket Correspondent, Dean Wilson believes the West Indies ran out of steam after their comfortable win in the first Test against England last month.

West Indies won the first Test by 4 wickets with Captain Jason Holder bagging 6 wickets for 42 runs in the first innings.

They went on to lose the second and third Tests in Manchester by 113 and 269 runs respectively.

Wilson says, “Generally speaking the better team wins and the longer the game is and the longer the series is then usually the strength kind of winds out.”

“I think what we saw over the course of these three matches, the West Indies put in a magnificent performance to win the first game in the Ageas Bowl and really played their best cricket in that game.

“England were competitive but they were beaten absolutely fair and square and I think what we saw in Manchester for the two test matches thereafter with Joe Root coming back into the side and adding a bit of quality to the batting England just got into their strides and grew stronger as the series wore on,” he said.
