“There were really promising signs going forward. Having Sibbers [Dom Sibley] at the other end to be that rock and have nothing faze him and just go along as he does has put us in a very strong position.”
Sibley shared a 260 run partnership with Stokes for the fourth wicket and posted his second hundred for England in the process.
“It was a great feeling as sometimes you get one you think it might be a bit of fluke so to get two is great. We had a big partnership at Cape Town as well.
“He turned it on after getting to a hundred as well which took the pressure off me a little bit. Great to bat with him. Hopefully it contributes to a win.”
In reply to England’s 469-9 declared West Indies were 32-1 at the close.
