West Indies coach Stuart Law has urged his side to make their own history when the third and final Test against England gets underway at Lord’s on Thursday.
Law believes the Caribbean side can build on their extraordinary victory in the second Test and produce the goods again in the final game at the Home of Cricket.
The Windies were beaten inside three days in the first Test at Edgbaston, by an innings and 209 runs, before fighting back to win at Headingley by five wickets, chasing a target of 322.
The win in Leeds was the West Indies’ first victory in Test cricket in the UK for 17 years.
Law said: “I’m immensely proud of the boys … to come out and produce what they did was an amazing turnaround.
“Now we’ve reached Lord’s – the home of cricket – and everyone is excited and talking about what could be a great end to the series.”
He continued: “We did the hard work at Headingley, and we know only hard work will do it for us again here.
“Before the series, I told the players to make their own history, to chart their paths and to make a statement to the world that we can compete with the best.”
