England look to bounce back against West Indies

The series is poised at 1-1 as the West Indies and England head into the decider.

West Indies

Afer winning the first match of the series with a stunning comeback the West Indies were defeated in the second. Despite another fine innings from skipper Shai Hope the hosts went down by six wickets.

West Indies squad: Shai Hope (captain), Alzarri Joseph (vice captain), Alick Athanaze, Yannic Cariah, Keacy Carty, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Matthew Forde, Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Gudakesh Motie, Kjorn Ottley, Sherfane Rutherford, Romario Shepherd, Oshane Thomas.


After losing the first match after being in a winning position, England produced a much better performance in the second to level the series.

Will Jacks made 73 and Sam Curran took 3-33 as England won by six wickets in the second one-day international in Antigua to level the three-match series. Harry Brook (43) and Jos Buttler (58) also scored well as England wrapped up victory with more than 17 overs in hand.

England are favourites for the thrid match and for the series as a whole. The victory in the second match will come as a boost to moral. After their comprehensive victory in the second match England will go into the series decider full of confidence. I think that England will take the third match and with it, the series. However, Shai Hope is in superb form with the bat and England will need to assert themsleves if they get into a winning position, after failing to drive home their advantage in the series opener. England win.
