Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman on Tuesday commended England side for the “astounding rebound” to win the second Test against West Indies.
In the principal Test, West Indies had vanquished England by four wickets on the back off Jermaine Blackwood’s gutsy thump.
Laxman, who had played 134 Test matches for India said that all-rounder Ben Stokes was a “class separated” in the subsequent Test.
His comment came as England whipped West Indies by 113 sudden spikes in demand for the rear of Stokes’ inside and out exhibition of 254 runs and three wickets, including the key wicket of Jermaine Blackwood in the subsequent Test.
“Phenomenal rebound by England to win the second test after the misfortune in the main Test, particularly considering a total day’s play was lost to rain. Ben Stokes was a class separated and just continues expanding his notoriety for being a player the world sits and watches,” Laxman tweeted.
With this success, England leveled the three-coordinate arrangement against West Indies. The third and last Test of the arrangement will be played from July 24 at Manchester.
