'One of The Best Ever?' Harry Brook's Catch Leaves Ben Stokes Shocked in James Anderson's Farewell Game: WATCH

Harry Brook took a stunning catch diving to his right as he dismissed Mikyle Louis leaving his captain Ben Stokes in disbelief.

One of The Best Ever Harry Brooks Catch Leaves Ben Stokes Shocked in James Andersons Farewell Game WATCH
Having won the toss against West Indies in the first Test of the red-ball series, Ben Stokes chose to bowl first, giving his old warhorse James Anderson a chance to cut down Shane Warne's record of 708 Test wickets. Harry Brook though ended up grabbing all the limelight by taking a wonderful one-handed diving catch to dismiss Mikyle Louis.
Courtesy of a strong start against West Indies, England were able to reduce the visitors to a score of 61/3 in the first session thanks to two wickets from Gus Atkinson while skipper Stokes got a wicket to his name, much credit to Brook for his athleticism.
Brook was stationed at the third slip in the 22nd over of the West Indies inning. Stokes bowled a full-ish delivery which Louis tried to defend, but the Caribbean batter failed to read the correct length as the ball ended up taking a thick edge off the bat and flew towards Brook. Harry unleashed a full-stretch dive and completed the catch in micro-seconds, his teammates were in disbelief. The reaction from Ben Stokes pretty much summed it up.

While Stokes was impressed as he embraced Brook in celebration, the stunning catch meant that Louis had to depart after a well-constructed 27 off 58 balls. His fellow opener and Windies skipper Kraigg Brathwaite could only muster up six runs before getting castled by Atkinson. Kirk McKenzie was also dismissed by Atkinson after scoring a solitary run as England put the visitors under the cosh.
The scoreboard read 61/3 after 28 overs at Lunch on Day 1 in London with the hosts firmly on top in James Anderson's 188th Test outing. Anderson, 41, has 700 Test wickets to his name and it remains to be seen whether he can topple Shane Warne's tally of 708 wickets in red ball cricket.
Anderson bowled nine overs before Lunch but didn't get any success, he did bowl three maidens and gave away 20 runs in his spell.
