Preview:

West Indies captain Jason Holder is urging his side to keep their collective cool as they bid for a historic win against England in the third Test at Lord’s starting on Thursday. Victory would give the Caribbean side their first Test series win in England in nearly three decades — a result no one predicted after they lost the first Test at Edgbaston by an innings and 209 runs.

That defeat appeared to be just the latest chapter in a desperate decline stretching back 20 years. But following their brilliant five-wicket victory at Headingley, Holder’s men have a chance to win the three-match series 2-1.
