Grenada will host the ENG vs WI 3rd ODI on Monday where both the teams will be hoping to take a series lead. England won the first match – which was a high scoring encounter – but Windies made a brilliant comeback in the second ODI to level the series at 1-1. Upcoming England vs West Indies third ODI is nicely poised for both Windies and England as both teams would be eyeing to take the lead in the 5-match ODI series.

Its highly unlikely that Windies will change their winning combination and will most probably go with the same lineup. They might be tempted to include more pace attack but Ashley Nurse providing batting depth and Bishoo’s economical figures can keep them in the team.
Chris Woakes missed the last ODI with a knee injury but England can pick him in the 3rd ODI of the series. Joe Denly might not get a place in playing XI again as their batting order looks well balanced.
