England vs West Indies History

The cricket rivalry between England and West Indies dates back to the late 19th century when the English-speaking Caribbean countries selected players to represent them against the visiting English players.

 

The official cricket regulatory body, the West Indies Cricket Board, joined the Imperial Cricket Conference in 1926 when the Windies became the fourth official “national” test team. Of course, the term national is used loosely here, as the players come from different territories and countries in the Caribbean.

 

The first official test game that the West Indies played took place in 1928, against the English team. It was a test series that England won 3-0, and thus began an ongoing series. Until 1960, a total of 10 series took place, with England winning five, the Indies three, leaving two drawn.

 

Starting in 1963, the test matches between the two teams got an official name — The Wisden Trophy. Since then, 28 Wisden Trophy series have been played, with West Indies winning 14 and England 10. Four resulted in a draw.

 

It seems that once the series received its trophy, the change of tides took place, with West Indies becoming dominant through the second part of the 20th century. They won the first two trophies in 1963 and 1966, followed by two consecutive English victories in 1968 and 1969. From 1973 to 2000, the English team hasn’t won a single Wisden Trophy, as West Indies displayed total dominance. It was the Viv Richards and Michael Holding era, and the English had no answer to the legendary batsman and bowler.

 

At the turn of the century, the English national team started dominating again, having won eight out of the 11 series in the last two decades. This was the time when English players, such as Michael Vaughan, came to prominence.

 

Overall, England and West Indies played 160 individual test cricket matches (although this number may increase by the time you read this guide), with the Windies winning 58 and England 51.

 

The two teams also played a fair share of ODI matches — 102 in total. England has had more success in one-day internationals with 52 victories against West Indies’ 44. The two teams played the first official limited overs match on September 5, 1973. West Indies even won the first two ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups, taking place on English soil. England was the Windies’ final opponent in the 1979 World Cup. England only won the World Cup once in 2019.

 

Finally, the two national teams played 18 Twenty20 official matches, with West Indies winning 11 and England seven. Their first H2H T20I match took place at the Oval in 2007, with West Indies emerging as winners. However, according to the current international T20 rankings, England is the most successful team in the shortened form of cricket, whereas West Indies are ranked #10.

England vs West Indies Betting Prediction

It’s hard to determine an obvious favourite when the two teams meet. Both teams have historically had their ups and downs, and each generation seems to bring a change in the tide. For the upcoming match, England is slightly favoured by the bookmakers — the Poms winning comes with around 1.6 odds as opposed to 2.2 on the Windies.

Match Details

The fifth and final day of the third Test between England and West Indies will begin today from 3:30 PM at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

Preview

Rain has once again tried to ruin England’s chances to win the Test. The rain gods weren’t kind to them in the second Test as well but the hosts came out on top thanks to their bowling attack. Going into the fifth day of the final Test match, England need eight wickets to win the match while the West Indies require 389 more runs. A win for the visitors is near impossible at this stage as they will look to draw the game and retain the Wisden Trophy.

Match Situation

West Indies are currently at 10/2 with Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite in the middle. Stuart Broad has picked both the wickets so far. He is only one wicket away from completing 500 scalps in his Test career.

Weather Condition

Weather becomes important after it rained for whole day yesterday. Even today, it will be cloudy for most parts of the day in Manchester with around 30% chances of rain. England will be hoping for play to happen for at least a session and a half for them to try and bowl out the West Indies.
Check eng vs wi live score here in our website.

Expected Top Players on the final day

Kraigg Brathwaite

Brathwaite is known to spend his time in the middle when the odds are against him and his team. Expect a fighting knock from him in trying to save the match for the West Indies.

Stuart Broad

This man performing and picking more wickets almost looks certain at the moment. He already has 8 wickets to his name in the match and he will most probably take a 10-wicket haul in the game.

Jofra Archer

Archer can turn out to be an unlikely hero for England. A lot has happened off the field since the first Test and it will be fitting if he takes 4-5 wickets to help his team win the series.

Our Betting Tips

The match situation is heavily in favour of England. Not many are expecting West Indies to draw this match. But weather can prove to be a hindrance. However, some play will take place today and the hosts, the way they are bowling, might not need more than a couple of sessions to seal the game.

Our Prediction – England to win the match.

After an agonizing four months, Test cricket finds a way back into our lives in the sizzling English summer. Hosts England will be locking horns with the West Indies, whose players traveled to this part nearly a month ago to abide with the ongoing pandemic restrictions.

Not many can forget what happened when these two sides last met in West Indies, when the English were taken down 2-1 in a three-match series. However, the Caribbeans have not done well in England for quite a while now and there are no signs suggesting a change in fortune for the tour.

England will be without their Test skipper Joe Root, who will be accompanying his wife as the couple are expecting a baby. In his absence, the 2019 Garfield Sobers Trophy winner Ben Stokes takes charge of the side, which happens to be the first time he will be doing so.

It will be interesting to see what line up the West Indies come up with for this game. The side will be desperate for the likes of Shai Hope and Kraigg Brathwaite to weather the new ball storm. Considering a fact that the weather will remain a bit cloudy and windy throughout the game, James Anderson and Stuart Broad will find great assistance and will prove to be a nightmare for the opposing team.

Probable XI

England

Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Joe Denly, Ben Stokes (C), Jos Buttler (WK), Dom Bess, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

West Indies

Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich (WK), Jason Holder (C), Kemar Roach, Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel

STATS TO REMEMBER:

  1. Stuart Broad is 15 wickets short of 500 Test wickets, a feat previously achieved only by three fast bowlers – Courtney Walsh, Glenn McGrath and James Anderson.
  2. This will be the fourth Test to be played at the Rose Bowl. In the previous three, England won twice (both against India) and drew once (against Sri Lanka).

OUR PREDICTION

England at home are always a threat, irrelevant of who is up against them. West Indies do not have their full-strength squad in England right now and that could play into the hands of the hosts.

England are expected to win this game comfortably.

VERDICT

Our bet is on England to emerge victorious.

Match Prediction for WI vs ENG for 5th T20I

England and West Indies will be playing a do-or-die match as they will lock horns with each other in the fifth T20 International. The series is leveled at 2-2 and the team winning the Monday encounter will take the trophy home.

West Indies won the first match by nine wickets while England cruised to a one-run victory in the second T20 International. The host made a comeback in the third match only to lose the next game by 34 runs.

In the fourth T20 International, England were exceptional with the bat as they posted 193 runs on the scoreboard. Chasing the total, the home team could score only 159 runs. Moeen Ali was the standout performer for the visitors as he smacked 63 runs while picking two wickets.

Though both England and West Indies are expected to put their best foot forward on Monday, West Indies are favorites to win the series. Kieron Pollard’s side has delivered promising performances in four T20Is so far.

Top Picks

Top West Indies Batter

Nicholas Pooran is toping the run-scoring charts for West Indies. In four T20 Internationals so far, Pooran has hammered 143 runs at an average of 47.67. Pooran can again lead the attack for the hosts in a do-or-die match on Monday.

Top England Batter

Moeen Ali was the top scorer for England in the fourth T20 International. As England were playing a do-or-die match, Ali slammed 63 runs off just 28 balls to help his team win by 34 runs. The spin all-rounder is again expected to emerge as the top batter for the visitors as they will be playing a must-win encounter on Monday.

Match Prediction for WI vs ENG for 4th T20I

West Indies and England are once again expected to produce a high-scoring and nail-biting thriller as they will have a go at each other in the fourth T20 International. It is a must-win encounter for England as the host are leading the series by 2-1.

The third T20 International between the two sides saw a dominating batting performance by the Caribbean side. West Indies smashed 224 runs in their allotted 20 overs. Rovman Powell was the main man as he scored a whopping 107 runs. The batter found an ally in Nicholas Pooran who added 70 runs to the scoreboard.

Chasing the total, England put up a good fight. The opening batter Tom Banton slammed 73 runs in just 39 balls. There was a late cameo by Philip Salt as well as he smacked 57 runs from 24 deliveries. However, this wasn’t enough for England to score a victory as they ended up with just 204 runs.

Though both the teams are in sublime form, West Indies will more likely win the fourth T20 International to win the series by 3-1.

Top Picks

Top West Indies Batter

Rovman Powell was the highest run-scorer for West Indies in the third T20 International as he hammered a whopping 107 runs in just 53 deliveries. The middle-order batter is again expected to cause carnage on the field in the fourth T20 International on Sunday.

Top England Batter

Tom Banton looked in exceptional form in the last match as he played a significant role while England were set to chase 225 runs in 20 overs. Though England couldn’t secure a victory, Banton played a sublime knock of 73 runs off 39 balls. The opening batter will look towards continuing his form in the fourth T20I as well to help Englishmen level the series.

Match Prediction for WI vs ENG for 3rd T20I

The third T20 International between West Indies and England promises to serve the viewers with utmost entertainment as the series is leveled at 1-1. West Indies dominated the first match as they secured a victory by nine wickets.

The team easily chased a score of 104 runs in their allotted 20 overs as Brandon King played a sublime knock of 52 runs. Jason Holder was the hero with the ball as he picked up a four-wicket haul.

Following a poor performance, England made a solid comeback in the second match. The visitors posted a massive total of 171 runs on the board with contributions by Jason Roy, Moeen Ali, Tom Banton, and Chris Jordan.

Chasing the total, West Indies showed a lot of promise. Romario Shepherd and Akeal Hosein smashed 44 runs each. However, Moeen Ali picked up three wickets while bowling at an economy rate of 6 to ensure a victory for his team by one run.

West Indies will start the Monday match as favorites. They have more chances of taking a 2-1 lead as both the batters and the bowlers are in fine form.

Top Picks

Top West Indies Batter

The odds favor Nicholas Pooran to emerge as the highest run-getter in the third T20I for West Indies. The batter scored 27 and 24 runs in the first and second T20 International respectively.

Top England Batter

Jason Roy was absolutely brilliant for England in the second T20 International. The opening batter hammered 45 runs off 31 balls with the help of six boundaries and two maximum to emerge as the highest run-scorer for West Indies. It is safe to bet on Roy as the top England batter for Thursday.

Pitch Report: Kensington Oval

The pitch at the Kensington Oval has been traditionally recognized as a low-scoring track. Bowlers are clearly going to be the match-winners during the second T20 International. The hard and dry nature of the surface can make the life of the batters difficult.

The pacers will most probably have an upper hand in the game while the spinners can come into the play in the second innings. The team batting first should look towards scoring anything above 166 runs.

The skipper winning the toss should opt to bat first as the surface gets slower and slower as the match progresses. Also, the spinners are able to make more impact in the second half of the game.

Weather Forecast

The weather for January 24, Monday suggests a sunny atmosphere at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown. The two teams won’t face any trouble during the games due to just 20 percent precipitation chances. The temperature will hover around 28 degrees celsius with the wind speed and humidity at 31 km/h and 65 percent respectively.

Match Prediction for WI vs ENG for 2nd T20I

England will play a must-win encounter against West Indies in the second T20 International of the three-match series. The visitors have put themselves in trouble in the series by losing the first game by nine wickets.

Following an emphatic win in the first match, West Indies have taken a 1-0 lead and they need just one more victory to clinch the series. England, on the other hand, are expected to put their best foot forward on Monday to ensure that the series is leveled.

The first T20 International saw Kieron Pollard winning the toss and inviting Eoin Morgan’s side to bat first. Put to bat, England produced a below-average performance. The whole team crumbled like a pack of cards.

None of the batters showed the discipline or intent to take the team through. Chris Jordan was the highest run-scorer for England followed by Adil Rashid as they added 28 and 22 runs respectively.

The visitors ended up with just 103 runs on the scoreboard in their allotted 20 overs. Jason Holder was the main man behind the collapse of the England side. The seamer ran through the opposition’s line-up to pick as many as four wickets while giving just seven runs in his 3.4 overs.

Chasing the total, West Indies didn’t face much difficulty. They completed the score within 17.1 overs as the opening batter Brandon King flaunted his class with the willow. Brandon played a sublime knock of 52 runs off 49 balls including four boundaries and one maximum.

Heading into the Monday match, West Indies are the favorites to replicate their performance from the first match. We predict the host to win the game and take an unassailable lead in the series.

Top Picks

Top West Indies Batter

For West Indies, the opening batter Brandon King was the wrecker-in-chief with the willow in the first T20 International. He took 49 balls and smacked four boundaries and one maximum. Overall, the 27-year-old has featured in 15 T20 Internationals scoring 316 runs at an average of 24.3 and strike rate of 138.

Brandon is again expected to lead the attack with the bat for the Caribbean side as they will take on England in the second T20I. It will be safe to bet on the opening batter as the highest run-getter for the host.

Top England Batter

For England, Moeen Ali can be the highest run-getter against West Indies in the second T20 International. Moeen showed his capabilities as an able middle-order batter in the Indian Premier League for Chennai Super Kings.

The batter is in a fine form with the willow and England will hope for a match-defining knock from him. Notably, the all-rounder failed to contribute in the first match as he was dismissed for a golden duck by Jason Holder.

Kensington Oval, Pitch Report

The pitch at the Kensington Oval has been traditionally recognized as a low-scoring track. Bowlers are clearly going to be the match-winners during the first T20 International. The hard and dry nature of the surface can make the life of the batters difficult.

The pacers will most probably have an upper hand in the game while the spinners can come into the play in the second innings. The team batting first should look towards scoring anything above 166 runs.

The skipper winning the toss should opt to bat first as the surface gets slower and slower as the match progresses. Also, the spinners are able to make more impact in the second half of the game.

Weather Forecast

The weather for January 23, Sunday suggests a sunny atmosphere at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown. The two teams won’t face any trouble during the games due to just ten percent precipitation chances. The temperature will hover around 28 degrees celsius with the wind speed and humidity at 29 km/h and 66 percent respectively.

Betting Tip

Match Prediction for WI vs ENG

England and West Indies are expected to serve the viewers with utmost entertainment as both the teams will lock horns with each other in the three-match T20I series. England will hope to redeem themselves against West Indies after a horrendous performance in the Test series against Australia.

Ashes 2021-22 didn’t go as per the plan for the Englishmen as they suffered a brutal loss by 4-0. Playing under Eoin Morgan, England will hope to revive their lost confidence albeit in a different format.

England’s last outing in white-ball cricket came during the ICC T20 Men’s World Cup 2021. The team was brilliant during the league stage as they finished at the top of the table. However, their campaign came to an end as they lost to New Zealand in the semi-final.

ECB has named a strong 16-member squad for the series with as many as 11 players from the World Cup team. Thus, they are expected to dominate on the West Indies soil.

West Indies, on the other hand, haven’t enjoyed a good ride in the shortest format of the game. The hosts have lost all their last five matches and will be thus extremely low on confidence.

The Caribbean team delivered poor performance in the T20 World Cup and followed it up with another bad performance against Pakistan. West Indies last traveled to Pakistan for a three-match T20I series. The tour saw them losing by 0-3.

As the hosts will be low on motivation and momentum, the chances of England winning are high. CricTips predicts a victory for England in the first T20 International despite West Indies having the home advantage.

Top West Indies Batter

The wicketkeeper-batter Shai Hope is being considered as the future of the West Indies cricket team. Hope is famous for his ability to stay on the field and build the innings, unlike the other West Indies batters who are known for their power-hitting abilities.

Hope is expected to lead the attack for Wednesday on Sunday as they will have a go at West Indies. Till now, the batter has scored 270 runs in 15 matches at an average of 20.8 and strike rate of 130.4.

As Shai Hope is being deemed as the best batter for West Indies in the upcoming three-match series, it will be safe to bet on the 28-year-old.
