ENG vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win
Barbados, January 23 at 07:30 PM IST
In-form England look to take the first step towards collecting another Test series away when they take on Windies at Kensington Oval. The English put on a splendid show in Sri Lanka, the 3-0 whitewash in as many Tests, on their last away tour. They have won eight of their last nine Tests and would start as favourites.
Windies would look to improve on the home record – three series wins (two against Bangladesh and New Zealand) since February 2009. They would be worried about their batting that has let them down in the recent games.
Pitch Conditions: The surface at Kensington Oval is usually sticky where the bowlers have a lot of assistance. This could well turn out a similar affair.
England Team News: England have a selection headache in the bowling department after a successful tour of Sri Lanka where they played three spinners. Moeen Ali is a sure starter but the English might pick one between Jack Leach and Adil Rashid as the second spinner.
Sam Curran and Stuart Broad are vying for the second seamer in the England XI to share the new ball with James Anderson.
Mark Wood has been ruled out of the Test series through injury. Olly Stone has been added to England squad as the replacement.
