West Indies and England face each other in the first Test of the three-match series that kicks off on March 8 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.
While West Indies had lost their preceding Test series 2-0 to Sri Lanka, England are coming through a harder time. The Three Lions lost 4-0 to Australia in one of the most embarrassing Ashes defeats.
Post the loss, too much has happened in the England camp. From ECB’s managing director Ashely Giles stepping down to coach Chris Silverwood leaving his post, many officials bore the brunt of the defeat. However, the management backed under-fire captain Joe Root to continue leading the team.
In the recent development, seamer Ollie Robinson has been ruled out of first Test while Saqib Mahmood has been given a go in the 12-member squad announced by ECB.
On the other hand, West Indies would look to take some confidence from the 3-2 T20I series win over England in January. They will be led by Kraigg Brathwaite in the Test series. The side has given chance to fast bowler Anderson Phillip and batter John Campbell for the first Test.
A total of 160 Test matches have been played between the sides so far with England winning 51 of them and West Indies 58. 51 matches ended in draws.
