ENG vs WI: [WATCH]- Jayden Seales Dismisses Zak Crawley With A Superb Yorker

West Indian rapid bowler Jayden Seales delivered an accurate yorker to dispatch England opening batter Zak Crawley return to the pavilion in the opening Test match against England on Thursday, July 11th. Ben Stokes secured the toss and choose to bowl first below cloudy conditions.

The England bowlers responded impressively, particularly debutant Gus Atkinson, who took seven wickets as the West Indies were dismissed for 121 in their first innings.

Zak Crawley was in fine form for England until Jayden Seales’s yorker ended his innings. The dismissal occurred on the fifth ball of the 31st over by the West Indian pacer.

The England opener was outpaced by the delivery, which sneaked under his bat and crashed into the stumps. Seales sprinted towards point with arms outstretched in jubilation, thrilled to have taken the wicket.

At the close of play, England reached 189/3 in 40 overs. Zak Crawley contributed 76 runs, while Ollie Pope scored a commendable half-century with 56 runs. Joe Root (15) and Harry Brook (25) remained unbeaten at the crease by the end of the day, as England aimed to establish a substantial first-innings advantage.

Debutant Gus Atkinson excels for England on the first day

In the midst of the anticipation surrounding James Anderson’s final match, newbie Gus Atkinson amazed by disturbing the West Indian batters.

The right-arm pacer claimed his maiden Test wicket by dismissing West Indian captain Kraigg Brathwaite for six in the 35th over of their innings. Atkinson continued his impressive spell by taking three wickets in four balls—Alick Athanaze, Jason Holder, and Joshua Da Silva—putting the West Indies on the back foot.

Mikyle Louis top-scored for the West Indies with 27 runs as they were bowled out for 121. James Anderson, in his farewell Test, also contributed with a wicket, dismissing Jayden Seales.

Meanwhile, Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes each took one wicket as England completely dominated Day 1 of the Test match.
