England vs. West Indies: First Test Preview
England vs. West Indies: First Test Preview
Though the upcoming three-match Test series between the two sides seems lopsided on paper - England are the clear favourites - the home team can spring a surprise or two, similar to what we experienced in the three-match Test series against West Indies and Sri Lanka, where the home team inflicted a massive 226-run defeat upon the visitors in the first game.

However, the number 3 ranked English team will be riding high on confidence after they registered a historic win in the subcontinent in November, defeating Sri Lanka 3-0. They have an influx of upcoming and exciting stars along with some experienced campaigners and unless the Windies can play out of their skins throughout, one can expect Joe Root's side to become only the third English team to win a Test series in the Caribbean.
