The 3rd T20I against Windies is the ideal chance for England to scratch off the painful memories of the Test and the ODI series. With the series already in pocket, England have a massive opportunity to gain the bragging rights by winning the third T20I and delivering a white wash to the world champions at their home.
Windies meanwhile are falling to newer lows in the T20I series and the shocking batting collapse in the the second game will be a tough memory to forget. However it will be interesting to see how the world champions react in the third T20I and challenge the visitors.
Known for his unique ‘Cottrell salute’ celebrations, the Windies pace bowler has poised some challenge for England throughout this tour. After a five-wicket haul in the ODI series he claimed three wickets in the first T20I and now he will be itching to finish off the series on a high note.
He has the pace to trouble the batsmen and can also vary his lengths to counter the big hits but can he step up in the death overs when the batsmen go bonkers?
England consistently failed to nail the yorkers in the ODI series and this is what Chris Jordon brought to the table in the T20I series. His four wicket spell was the architect of Windies’ horrific batting brain-fade in the second T20I and he looks good to inflict further damage in the third T20I.
He has got six wickets so far in the series so his battle against the big hitters in the Windies team will be worth watching out for.
After producing a barrage of sixes in the ODI series, the Universal Boss looks exhausted in the T20I series. Two poor performances in two games have raised some questions but everyone knows that Gayle can turn the tables on in no time.
