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.

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.
