ENG vs WI Dream11 Team | Windies vs England 3rd Test

ENG vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win

St Lucia, February 09-February 12 at 07:30 PM IST

After twin defeats in Barbados and Antigua, England is standing on the verge of the historic whitewash. The hosts lead the three-match series by 2-0 on back of a massive 381-runs win at Barbados in the first match and a thumping 10-wickets win at Antigua in the second game. So, can they make it 3-0?

The last time England were at the receiving end against Windies was in 1986 where they faced ten defeats out of 14 games on a tour which included five test matches. And, thirty-three years down, the script looks quite similar.

The hosts have outplayed Joe Root’s team in all three departments especially in the bowling. Windies pace quadrate has dominated English batsmen the most and nobody averages better than 27. In the final game, Windies will be without their regular skipper Jason Holder who is facing a suspension due to slow over-rate in the second game and Kraigg Brathwaite will captain the team. Young pacer Oshane Thomas is expected to take his place. Meanwhile, the injury concerns for Ben Stokes and Ben Foakeas showcase that the difficulties for the visitors are not going to end any sooner.
