Cricket Match Preview:

England and West Indies will take on each other in the first cricket test match at Bridgetown. West Indies have had a great record at Barbados so far, except the last test match when they were beaten by Sri Lanka. England do have a superior side but West Indies have troubled them both at home and away and they will have to be on top of their cricket game to avoid the blushes.

England have had a very successful 2018 as they defeated India at home by a big margin of 4-1 and defeated Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka, which is a huge feat despite Sri Lanka not being a force they used to be. England have developed a side that is a force to reckon with both at home and away and this has happened despite the retirement of Alastair Cook.

West Indies no longer have Stuart Law as a coach of their cricket side. However, his imprints will still be visible in this cricket side as he has groomed most of these men during his stint. Players like Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer along with the experienced ones like Jason Holder and Darren Bravo will hold the key to keep Law’s legacy going.

England at home are almost unbeatable because of the presence of James Anderson and Stuart Broad. However, outside the helpful conditions of England, it will be interesting to see how these two legends of cricket game adapt to the slow and low pitches of West Indies. They have other dangerous players as well like Sam Curran, Ben Foakes, Ben Stokes and Jos Butler, who are enough to steal the cricket game away from any situation.

It is undoubtedly going to be a tough series for West Indies despite playing at home. However, they have shown in recent times that they are dangerous at home. The results against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and even England at home suggest that they can surprise opponents at home. Whether they can do it over a series remains to be seen.

Cricket Match Information:

England tour of West Indies will begin with the first cricket test match at Bridgetown. England last toured West Indies in 2015 when the test cricket series was drawn level at 1-1. This series presents the opportunity for West Indies to impress at home while England will look to build on their victory in Sri Lanka and show that they can consistently win away from home.

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies had a sorry tour of India and Bangladesh in test cricket format. They were whitewashed in both those tours and will now have to perform much better if they want to make an impression at home. Our prediction is of inclusion of Jason Holder in the lineup, who was out of the squad due to injury.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:

  • K Brathwaite
  • Keiron Powell
  • Shai Hope
  • Shimron Hetmyer
  • Roston Chase
  • S Dowrich
  • Jason Holder
  • Kemar Roach
  • Devendra Bishoo
  • Shanon Gabriel
  • Sunil Ambris


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

England were terrific on their Sri Lankan tour. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven as they played in their last game of cricket.

Here is our prediction of England’s playing XI:

  • R Burns
  • Keaton Jennings
  • Joe Root
  • Jonny Bairstow
  • Ben Stokes
  • Jos Butler
  • Ben Foakes
  • Moeen Ali
  • Adeel Rashid
  • Stuart Broad
  • James Anderson

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Roston Chase has a good record in home conditions for West Indies. His performance in the middle order and with the ball is going to be crucial for West Indies in this cricket series. Our prediction is he is going to be our man to watch out for in this cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

West Indies beat England the last time these two sides met each other in the test cricket game. They generally have a good record at Barbados as well. The pitch has something for the bowlers and it becomes difficult to score as the cricket game progresses. Our prediction is to expect a score of 400 in the first innings followed by low totals. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

England will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They have been the in-form team over the period of last year. Our prediction is of an England victory in the first cricket test match.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Jos Butler (ENG) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Stuart Broad (ENG) – 4 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Shimron Hetmyer (WI)
