ENG vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win

Antigua, January 31 at 07:30 PM IST

After mustering the visitors in the first Test mercilessly by 381 runs, the Caribbean boys will go into the second Test in a quest to seal the series. England, on the other hand, after a shocking defeat will look for a relentless show to keep the series alive.

What happened in Barbados

Opting to bat first, Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell stitched a half-century stand for the opening wicket. It was Brathwaite and Shai Hope who got together for the second wicket and stitched a 73 runs stand.

Roston Chase and Shimron Hetmyer were the others who got 50+ scores with Hetmyer being the top scorer with 81 runs. The Windies were folded for 289 in the first innings and that is when their bowlers ruined the batting line-up of England as they dismissed the visitors for a mere 77 in the first innings.

Kemar Roach ruffled the feathers of the English batsmen claiming 5 for 17 from 11 overs while Alzzari Joseph and Jason Holder claimed 2 wickets each which meant windies were leading by 212 runs in the first innings.

Windies in their second innings were reduced to 120 for 6 and then came a record partnership between skipper Jason Holder and wicket-keeper Shane Dowrich stitched 295 runs stand for the 7th wicket. In the process, Jason Holder scored his maiden double century and remained unbeaten on 202 while Dowrich remained unbeaten on 116.

A target of 626 was an uphill and almost impossible task and England could not bear the pressure as they were dismissed for 246 courtesy Roston Chase's 8 for 60 which handed Windies their one of the biggest win in terms of runs.

  • Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Rory Burns are the expected batsmen to feature in this Test.
  • In the bowling department, Moeen Ali, James Anderson and Ben Stokes are the sure shot choice.

  • In the batting department, the hosts will heavily rely on the likes of Shai Hope, Shane Dowrich, Kraigg Brathwaite and Shimron Hetmyer.
  • Kemar Roach who got a 5-fer in the first innings of the last Test, Shanon Gabriel is another option in this facet.
