WI vs ENG: Kyle Mayers calls his fifer in 3rd Test as ‘special moment’
WI vs ENG: West Indies all-rounder Kyle Mayers expressed happiness after taking five wickets on Day 3 of the third Test against England.
On Day 3 of the current third and final Test in Saint George’s, Grenada, Joshua Da Silva’s unbeaten century and Mayer’s five-wicket haul handed West Indies a commanding lead over England.
“It (five-fer) was a very special moment for me. The team wanted this victory. I tried to make the batsmen play as much as possible. That (Da Silva’s) innings was very special. We wanted him to get his first hundred. His best friend was sitting on the balcony,” said Mayers after the play on Day 3 ended.
“It was an emotional moment for me as well, he was crying after getting his century. It’s a team effort, I just waited for my turn and the opportunity presented itself,” he added.
England’s score at Stumps was 103/8, with a 10-run lead. At the moment, Chris Woakes and Jack Leach are unbeaten in the crease.
