WI vs ENG Today Dream11 Team, West Indies vs England Betting Tips – Who will win 2nd Test?
Updated on: Mar 16, 2022 12:24 am IST
WI vs ENG Prediction: The first Test witnessed both West Indies and England being involved in a long arduous battle in Antigua that stretched for the entirety of the match and eventually ended up in a draw. Being put to bowl first proved to be desirable for the hosts who early shocks to the Englishmen by bundling out their top four batters, but Jonny Bairstow’s scintillating 140 brought the visitors in a dominating score of 311. West Indies didn’t shy back and replied with 375 runs on board, with Nkrumah Bonner (123) emerging as the top-performer. There was plenty of action in the second innings as well, with England cruised to 349/6 – and a target of 286 – riding on the hundreds from Zak Crawley and Joe Root, and gritty exhibitions from Bonner (38*) and Jason Holder (37*) ensuring a draw for the hosts in the first feud. A must-win game for either side to take a 1-0 lead in the series, so an action-packed contest could be very well expected in this fixture.
