England vs West Indies: What to Expect?

Every cricket fan awaits for the England and West Indies cricket match. There is a long held rivalry between both teams. Who can forget the West Indies playing at Lords in the summer of 2000.

Before that series, the Caribbean side was undefeated in the previous 30 years against the English side. However, a new day came and a new history was written. 

A horrible winless tour has come to an end for the West Indies. They have strengthened their side for the 2 test series against England.

By no means, England is in good form. They went all null and void against Australia in the Ashes. Thus, both teams are coming from humiliating defeats.

Changes in English Side

England lost the Ashes in mere 12 days. 

Considering that, James Anderson and Stuart Broad have been dropped out of the series. This indicates that the new leadership is focused on the future.

Despite this, Joe Root is expected to retain his Test captaincy as England’s red-ball form continues to deteriorate.

Apart from Broad and Anderson, six other players who played in the disastrous tour to Australia have been left out of the series: Dom Bess, Sam Billings, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Haseeb Hameed, and Dawid Malan.

Durham’s Alex Lees, leg-spinner Matt Parkinson, and seamers Saqib Mahmood and Matthew Fisher are among the four uncapped players in the team. They will debut against the West Indies.

The pace master Jofra Archer is still in recovery mode from a second elbow procedure and is not ready to return. Liam Livingstone, who was part of Eoin Morgan’s T20 squad, has been left out of the Test squad yet again.

West Indies Changes

Both Kemar Roach and Jason Holder are anticipated to return for the second half of the season. As a result, the West Indies seam assault might be a fascinating mix of their expertise and the youthful zeal of Joseph, Seales, and Phillip, much to Haynes and Co’s pleasure.

Jeremy Solanzo’s single performance of 66 against Sri Lanka should be enough to win his spot.  The performances of a trio of former West Indies Test openers, John Campbell, Chandrapaul Hemraj, and Kieron Powell, should also have encouraged the selectors.
