West Indies’ Shai Hope tipped as future ‘great’

LONDON: West Indies batsman Shai Hope could become a modern "great", coach Stuart Law said on Tuesday ahead of the Test series decider against England. The tourists' 23-year-old batsman starred in their shock five-wicket victory in the second Test last week, becoming the first player in Headingley's history to hit a century in both innings of a match.

With Hope scoring 101 in just his second ODI the West Indies were well on track to overhaul the hosts' 257 all out, until his dismissal sparked a late collapse. The tourists went into the final over needing just four runs to win off seamer Donald Tiripano, but lost three wickets -- two of them to run-outs -- to finish on 257 for…
