England Reaches 80-1 on Second Day of West Indies Cricket TestW

May 18 (Bloomberg) -- Captain Andrew Strauss led England to 80-1 at lunch of the second day of the opening cricket Test with West Indies at Lord’s in London.

Strauss on 31, and Jonathan Trott, on 17, were batting at the break. Alastair Cook was bowled by Kemar Roach on 26.

The hosts trail by 163 runs after bowling out West Indies for 243 in the morning session. Stuart Broad took a career-best seventh wicket with the first ball.

Shannon Gabriel, making his Test debut, edged to Graeme Swann at second slip to end the visitors’ first innings. Broad, who was 7-72, had Fidel Edwards caught by Matt Prior with the final ball yesterday.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul finished an unbeaten 87 for West Indies.

England is undefeated in its last 12 Tests at Lord’s since losing the 2005 Ashes Test at the venue.

West Indies hasn’t won an overseas Test in a country other than bottom-ranked Bangladesh since winning in South Africa in December 2007. The Caribbean team hasn’t won an away series against anyone other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in 17 years.
