ENG vs WI 4th ODI will be played at the same ground where the 3rd game was washed out. With the 3rd game going complete wash-out and series currently level on 1-1, both teams now have less margin for error in the remaining two matches.

Currently, the West Indies team looks balanced, and they might not make a lot of changes to the winning combination. One tough decision selectors might have to decide whether to include Andre Russell who was called for national duty from PSL 4 in the playing XI or not. And if yes, then who will he be replacing is the real question. Carlos Brathwaite so far had a below average ODI series, but Windies will also be keen to maintain the balance of the team as Russell is coming into the national team after one year.
The 3rd match was abandoned due to rain, but England did include Chris Woakes in place of Tom Curran for the third ODI. The all-rounder Chris Woakes is likely to keep his place. Ben Stokes could also be included in the playing XI after recovering from ankle injury.
