The post-Jimmy Anderson era begins at Trent Bridge as England look to clinch the Test series with another win against West Indies.


Ben Stokes's side said goodbye to England's greatest-ever bowler in style at Lord's – winning inside three days by an innings and 114 runs – with one of the hopes for the future Gus Atkinson the star of the show.

The Surrey quick took 12 wickets – finishing with the best figures by an Englishman on debut for more than a century – as he reassured supporters there is life beyond Jimmy.

England have made just one change for the second Test in Nottingham, with the lightning pace of Mark Wood preferred to the more youthful Matt Potts and uncapped Dillon Pennington, while Chris Woakes and Shoaib Bashir make up the rest of the bowling attack.

The tourists may be forced to replace fast bowler Shamar Joseph after his injury struggles at Lord's but they will need more than just a personnel change if they're to stop their hosts galloping to a series victory at Trent Bridge, which would be Stokes and co's first since Pakistan in 2022.
