ENG vs WI 5th ODI: England aims to win series, Windies plots comeback

 

England will have a chance to take revenge of the loss in the Test series when they take on West Indies in ENG vs WI 5th ODI in St Lucia on Saturday, 2 March, but they will have to work hard as Windies can surprise them as well.

Team News

Windies

With a surface that supports pace bowlers, Andre Russell could find a place in the playing XI at the expense of Bishoo/Brathwaite.

England

Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali will return home after this match so we are expecting that they will have one last run out. If Jason Roy’s back is all better, he will be surely playing to ensure continuity. Another rest for Chis Woakes could be on the cards, with Tom Curran or Willey replacing him.
