Mark Stoneman batted stoically for some of day four then all of day five (130 overs) of the third Test to rescue a series draw.

Luke Fletcher has been a consistent performer in the ODI side (Unsung hero?). His efforts weren’t enough to prevent us surrendering a 2-0 lead in the ODI series though.

West Indies T20Is – Lost 2-0

Next it’s back home for the World Cup then the Ashes and hopefully a return to form!
