Joe Root praised his counterpart Kraigg Brathwaite who batted in excess of 15 hours across the second Test in Barbados to ensure West Indies head to Grenada for the third and final Test with the ambition of winning the series. The West Indian captain made 56 not out from 184 balls, to back up his mammoth 160 in the first innings, and played with lots of gut and gumption on a day five surface which was playing a few tricks. The 673 balls Brathwaite spent at the crease is the most ever faced by a West Indian in Tests.
