Watch: Mark Wood Decides Not To Run From Fine Leg To Join Team Huddle; Forms His Own Solo Huddle

The first match of the ICC World Test Championship series between the England cricket team and the West Indies cricket team is currently happening at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. During the second day of the match, there was a funny moment involving the visiting team’s fast bowler Mark Wood.

Speaking about the Test match between the England cricket team and the West Indies team first, the visitors won the toss and Joe Root elected to bat first. England lost early wickets. But a ton from Jonny Bairstow guided them to a total past 300.

Bairstow received decent support from Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes as the visitors posted 311 on the board. Jayden Seales surprised the fans with a four-wicket haul for the home team. Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder and Kemar Roach bagged two wickets each.


In reply, the West Indies team has scored 212/5 after 74 overs. The third day’s action is currently underway, but a clip from yesterday’s action has gone viral online.

Mark Wood joined the team huddle from a distance

As has been the trend in cricket, the fielding team has a huddle wherein the captain briefs the plans for the bowling and fielding. Mark Wood already reached his fielding position and did not join the huddle. His teammates looked for him, so he decided to create his own huddle. You can watch the video here:

The West Indies batters have batted well in the first innings so far. It looks like they can score 311 runs and then build a decent first-innings lead. Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Craig Overton have taken a wicket each for England, whereas Ben Stokes has dismissed two Caribbean batters.


For the home side, captain Kraigg Brathwaite scored a half-century at the top of the order. Nkrumah Bonner is currently batting in the middle with Joshua Da Silva.
