Atkinson’s magnificent 7

Atkinson’s magnificent 7


LONDON, July 10

England were in the driving seat against West Indies at 189/3 at the close, giving them a lead of 68 after seven wickets from debutant Gus Atkinson helped them bowl out the tourists for 121 on Day 1 of the first Test at Lord’s.

England fast bowler Atkinson took seven wickets for 45 runs while James Anderson, playing in his 188th and final Test before retirement, claimed his 701st wicket as the hosts dismissed the West Indies in just under 42 overs.

Atkinson took three wickets in four balls at one point, just missing out on a hat-trick, and recorded the best figures by an Englishman on debut since Dominic Cork’s 7/43, also vs WI, in 1995. — Reuters
