After a demoralising defeat in the opening game at Edgbaston, West Indies will lock horns with England for the second time in the Test series in Headingley on Thursday. Here are few of the key statistics leading into the encounter.
A win for England in the second Test will see them beat West Indies for six continuos series in a row at home.
Since 2009, England have faced just two series defeats while winning 13 out of it and managed two draws as well.
West Indies' struggle in the format has been evident as they managed just two wins in the last 18 games while England enjoy six wins out of the last eight Tests at home.
England's record in Leeds isn't an impressive one as they managed to win just two in their last seven games at the venue.
Joe Root has a chance to level AB de Villiers' record of fifties in 12 consecutive Test matches when he takes the field on his home ground on Friday.
However, Root's record at the venue is his lowest as compared to the other stadiums in the country with an average of 25.30.
Eight more wickets for James Anderson will make him the third seamer and sixth bowler overall to claim 500 wickets in Test cricket.
Anderson has a good chance to attain the milestone during the second Test against West Indies, if he repeats his performances against Sri Lanka at the venue in May last year during which he picked a 10-wicket haul.
