Exclusive Team News

The mighty Chris Gayle is returning to the West Indian T20 side after a gap of one year, and he will be offered sufficient support by Ewin Lewis who has the credit of two T20 hundred which he scored recently. The team management is keen to include Marlon Samuels and Keiron Pollard in the playing eleven, and with the addition of Carlos Brathwaite in the middle order, West Indian batting line-up emerges very strong on papers. Jerome Taylor and Kesrick Williams will lead the bowling attack for the West Indian side. Both of them are in top-notch form, and they will surely pose a huge threat to the English batting, especially in the pace-friendly conditions.

On the other hand, England will play this game with three seamers, Liam Plunkett, Chris Jordan and Tom Curran to exploit the pitch conditions to the fullest.

Batsman should try to settle down in the initial deliveries they face, and it will be a foolishness to attack from the first ball.
