West Indies won the toss and decided to bowl first.

England aims to find the lost rhythmThe English Cricket team after a tough Indian tour will be trying hard to bring back their lost rhythm by triumphing against West Indies in their home soil.

The bowling department of England is very weak, and since the last World Cup, they have the worst economy rates among the top ten cricket playing nations.

Due to the injuries of David Willey, Mark Wood, and Reece Topley, the English team management has included Stephen Finn and Curran in the squad. Stephen Finn is playing his first ODI after a hiatus of eighteen months, and for the fast bowler, this is a golden chance to affirm his position in the one-day squad.

West Indies led by Jason Holder is missing the service of their key players, Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy and Lendl Simmons due to the poor relation of the WICB with the players.

The batting department of the West Indian side will be led by Evin Lewis who scored a brilliant 148 against Sri Lanka last year.
