England vs West Indies, 1st Test Day 2 preview: England will be hoping to pile further misery on West Indies and collect a potentially match-winning first innings lead on the second day of the first Test at Lord’s on Thursday.

Gus Atkinson led the way with a haul of 7/45
on Test debut, while the trio of Stokes, James Anderson and Chris Woakes collected a wicket each. Mikyle Louis, making his international debut in this game, top-scored for the West Indians with a knock of 27.
