West Indies captain Jason Holder said he had never lost belief in his side after they vindicated his faith with a stunning five-wicket win over England in the second Test at Headingley.

The West Indies chased down a seemingly tough target of 322 with more than four overs to spare on Tuesday's final day.

Shai Hope led the way with 118 not out as the West Indies won a Test in England for the first time in 17 years.

None of Hope's previous 11 Tests had yielded a hundred.

But this match saw the 23-year-old Barbados batsman score two, with Tuesday's knock following his first-innings 147.

Opener Kraigg Brathwaite fell just five runs short of also scoring twin hundreds at Headingley, combining with Hope for two partnerships worth 390 runs in total, including a key stand of 144 on Tuesday.

The West Indies will now head to Lord's for next week's third Test all square at 1-1 in the three-match series following a win made all the more remarkable by their humiliating innings and 209-run defeat in the first Test at Edgbaston.

That inept display prompted West Indies great Curtly Ambrose to label the current side "embarrassing" and "pathetic".
