England’s batting woes in Test cricket persist as they got off to a nightmarish start with the bat in the first morning of the West Indies tour. The changes they rang in the batting department ahead of the series didn’t pay off as the top four found themselves back in the hut inside 16 overs. Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow batted out a couple of jittery overs before the lunch break, adding nine runs off 50 deliveries in the alliance. But with the West Indies seamers managing to get the ball to move, the two senior pros will have their task cut out in the second session.
