  • England and West Indies get an unusual test summer underway with the first of three tests, with the series opening in Southampton at the Ageas Bowl.
  • England, without captain Joe Root, will be looking to kick on from a successful series in South Africa at the turn of the year, when they won three in a row to win the series 3-1.
  • West Indies, meanwhile, have caused an upset against England before in test cricket and will be looking to upset the odds again in this match.

 Toss Prediction
Overcast conditions on the first two days could tempt England to bowl first. Ben Stokes will be looking to win the toss in his first game as captain.

 Weather Report
The first two days are set to be overcast, with a small chance of showers – though nothing sustained – before clearer conditions later in the week.

 Pitch Condition
The Ageas Bowl is normally a good batting wicket and the test summer could start with a few runs.

 Predicted Lineups


Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley, Joe Denly, Ollie Pope, Ben Stokes (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Chris Woakes, Dom Bess, Jofra Archer, James Anderson.

  • With Joe Root absent, Ben Stokes will lead the team. 
  • Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow have already been confirmed as missing out – Dom Bess will play ahead of Ali and Jack Leach as the frontline spinner.
  • The key selection decision will be which three of James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes will join Ben Stokes in the bowling attack.


Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Jermaine Blackwood, Shai Hope, Sharmarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jason Holder, Shane Dowrich (wk), Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel.

  • Shannon Gabriel has been added to the West Indian test squad after his performances in the warm-up matches and the tourists could therefore opt for the same pace attack that beat England in the West Indies in 2019.
  • The squad includes potential debutants Nkrumah Bonner and Chemar Holder. The latter was in good domestic form with Barbados.

 ENG Key Players: 

 Ben Stokes
After an incredible 2019, including heroics in the Ashes and the World Cup, the all-rounder captains the test team for the first time. In England’s last series, against South Africa, he put in some big performances with the bat.

 James Anderson: 
A frustrating, injury-hit 2019 is behind him now, and England’s return to action gives the iconic swing bowler the chance to close in on 600 test wickets.

 Ollie Pope: 
Caught the eye with the bat in South Africa, with comparisons to Ian Bell extending beyond just looks and into his stroke play too.

 WI Key Players: 

 Jason Holder
The captain helped West Indies to the Wisden Trophy last time these two teams met in test cricket, with his all-round contributions including a double-century with the bat.

 Kemar Roach: 
Claimed 18 wickets when these teams last met and is now seven away from 200 in test cricket for the West Indies.

 Roston Chase: 
A key all-rounder, and while he is better known for his batting – and five test centuries – England will not have forgotten his eight-wicket haul last year.

 Team Forms:  

 ENG Team Form: 

England return to action having got back to winning ways in test cricket at the turn of the year. They came from behind to beat South Africa 3-1, with Ben Stokes in excellent batting form and some key performances from the likes of Dom Sibley, Mark Wood and Ollie Pope along the way too.


 WI Team Form: 

West Indies lost to India in their most recent matches in the ICC World Test Championship, suffering two heavy defeats after being bowled out for 222, 100, 117 and 210 in their four innings. They did beat Afghanistan in a one-off test most recently, however – Rahkeem Cornwall’s seven-wicket haul in the first innings was central to their success, while Shamarh Brooks hit a century. West Indies eventually won by nine wickets.

Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Joe Denly, Zak Crawley, Ben Stokes(c), Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler(w), Dominic Bess, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

John Campbell, Kraigg Brathwaite, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jason Holder(c), Shane Dowrich(w), Rahkeem Cornwall, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Chemar Holder, Nkrumah Bonner, Raymon Reifer, Jermaine Blackwood.

All the best
