ENG vs WI Dream11 Prediction: The reincarnation of cricket on the International calendar brought joy to the faces of the ardent and passionate fans of the game as they were served with the best recipe since a nearly 4-month halt. However, things ballistically adhere to West Indies cricket as they registered an emphatic victory in the opening Test played at the Ageas Bowl.
Doing so, they became the only team to register twin wins chasing 200 or more in a Test on England soil in the last decade or so. Jason Holder’s men had their task cut out and they blemished in the desperate return on International cricket.
With all being said, it is now time for the second Test which is all set to get underway from 16 July in Manchester. Not only the second but the third and final game of the series will be played at this very venue.
Talking about the mindset for both sides, the visitors should not let the recent success take over their heads. Yes, they are 1-0 up but a lot of cricket is still left in the series to be played. The only thing they should ask from this juncture is a series win to torrid the hosts in the worst possible manner.
Talking about the home team, the Three Lions are in a need to regroup and address the issues they faced in the last Test. Skipper Joe Root is expected to be back ahead of this game which is surely a sigh of relief, on the bowling front, the fringe would not be the key anymore and they need to ascertain a top-class bowling attack in a quest to stay alive in the series. It would be interesting to see what path England opt for to level and save the series in Manchester. Meanwhile, for the West Indies, a Test series win in England since 1988 looks a touch closer.
The clash will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester at 03:00 PM IST on 16th July 2020.
England won: 02
West Indies won: 03
For some time now, Old Trafford track somehow assists the spinners which could be evident in the upcoming game. The likes of Roston Chase and Dominic Bess are expected to get some purchase from the wicket. At the same time, the dryness of the wicket might engulf the batsmen as well.
With cloud covers expected in the first two days, the batsmen should prepare themselves to see off the Red cherry. The battle between bat and ball could be an even one here.
September 04-08: Australia (497/8d & 186/6d) defeated England (301 & 197) by 185 runs.
