TOP SPIN AT THE TEST: Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite shared stands of 246 and 144 in this Test. Their total of 390 runs is the fourth most added by one pair in a single Test against England. The two highest aggregates involved Don Bradman and the third featured Garry Sobers. No pair have added more in a Test match since 1960.
LAWRENCE BOOTH AT EDGBASTON: Alastair Cook already possessed the highest Test score at Edgbaston, having ground down India to the tune of 294 in 2011. And his 243 here means he is now fifth on the list too, behind Peter May (285* v West Indies in 1957), South Africa’s Graeme Smith (277 in 2003) and Pakistan’s Zaheer Abbas (274 in 1971).
