The West Indies and England, are playing a 3 match Test series on Caribbean soil as a part of the ICC Test Championship. The first match from the series is set to play at Sir Vivian Richards Ground, North stand in Antigua on between 8th-12th March 2022.

The West Indies have lost the previous series against Srilanka by 2-0 whereas England have lost the latest Ashes by a huge margin of 4-0 against Aussies. England vs West Indies is now a battle between the two teams, which are at the bottom of the points table of the ICC Test Championship.

This will be a must-win series situation for both the teams to move upwards in the points table. Both the teams have made a few changes after the analysis of their previous tours and will try to get maximum advantage of the pitch conditions in Caribbean weather.

West Indies Preview

The West Indies have lost all the Test matches against Sri Lanka in the previous series. After a gap of almost 2 months, they are ready to host England in a 3 match Test series from which the first match will be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on 8th March. 

The West Indies have managed to win just a single Test match from the last 2 test match series and they are at the 9th position in the points table of ICC Test Championship. After a poor performance against Srilanka in the last Test series, they have rested Roston Chase, Rahkeem Cornwall, Shai Hope, Jeremy Solorzano, and Jomel Warrican for this tour.

The team has added a few new faces like John Campbell and Anderson Phillip. Anderson Phillip who is a seemer has claimed 12 wickets at 14.25 across the opening two rounds of the West Indies Championship. The ICC World number 1 all-rounder in the Test format; Jason Holder is back in the squad and will be the key player against the mighty English side.

The overall team is looking balanced but has less experience than the English squad. They will try to execute their plans well against visitors in this series. This series will be important for them as they are in a search of series wins to increase the points in the ICC Test Championship.

Key Players: Kraigg Brathwaite, Jermaine Blackwood,  Jason Holder, Kemar Roach.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Kyle Mayers, John Campbell, Jermaine Blackwood, Shamarh Brooks, Joshua Da Silva (wk), Jason Holder, Anderson Phillip, Veerasammy Permaul, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales.

England Preview

After getting defeated against Australia in the Ashes, England are all set to play a 3 match Test series on Caribbean soil against West Indies. The first match against the hosts will be played on the 8th Match at Antigua.

The English team has shown sheer dominance against West Indies’ President XI in the practice match at Antigua. They have tried a different opening combination of Ales Lees and Zak Crawley which have worked for them in the practice match. After a poor batting display against Australia in the previous series, the team management has added a batting depth to the team.

England will play in the absence of James Anderson and Stuart Broad after long years. Ollie Robinson who has been superb in recent years will lead the team’s pace attack along with Mark Wood and Chris Woakes. Jack Leech has bowled brilliant spells in the practice match at the Antigyua’s pitch and will try to put pressure on opponents with his spin bowling.

England’s overall team is long strong in front of the West Indies. They will try to win this series against hosts which will help them to increase points in the ICC Test Championship. Captain Joe Root has already started his new year with a bang during the Ashes and will like to continue his form on this tour.

Key Players: Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Ollie Robinson.

 

England Predicted Playing XI:

Alex Lees, Zak Crawley, Joe Root (c), Dan Lawrence, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Foakes (wk), Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Ollie Robinson, Jack Leach.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be sunny throughout the first Test between 8th to 12th March. The average temperature of 5 days is ranging between 27°C and 13°C. The trend shows us that the pitch has favored bowlers as the day progress in the test match.

Venue Details

The first Test match of the tour is set to be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Stand in Antigua. A venue can accommodate 10,000 spectators.

Toss: To Bat

In total 10 Test matches were played at this venue from which 5 matches went as a draw. The pitch has been offering advantages to bowlers in the latter part of the game. From 5 matches which got results, the team who batted first have managed to win on 3 occasions here. The team winning the toss should opt to bat first here.

Although both the teams have lost their previous series, England’s squad is looking more strong compared to the West Indies team. With the batting depth Englishman has with them, it will be difficult for Caribbean bowlers to tackle the English team. 
 

We predict that England will defeat the West Indies.
