Join Sportsmail for the over-by-over coverage for day one of the second Test between West Indies and England.

The first Test finished in a draw as the tourists struggled to take wickets on the final day, though Jimmy Anderson did manage to break Sir Ian Botham's record.

Meanwhile, England captain Alastair Cook is looking to end two long droughts.

Cook is a man with plenty on his mind as he aims to score a first Test hundred in two years and lead the side to an away victory for the first time since Kolkata in December 2012.

The pitch in Grenada, which is expected to be batsman-friendly if not quite to the same extent as last week's track in Antigua, could prove helpful in one regard and frustrating in the other.

The best chance of achieving both goals would involve batting first at the National Stadium, placing Cook and his likely opening partner Jonathan Trott straight into the firing line.

Follow all the updates, with insight from PAUL NEWMAN and CHARLES SALE in Grenada.
