The West Indies squad, led by Shai Hope, includes notable names like Alzarri Joseph, Shimron Hetmyer, and Brandon King. However, the sudden retirement of Shane Dowrich prompted no replacement named by CWI.

Shai Hope stands out as the leading run-scorer for the Windies since 2022, boasting 1,341 runs at an average of 44.70. Brandon King follows closely with 904 runs. Alzarri Joseph leads the bowling department with 44 wickets. Hope eyes the milestone of reaching 5,000 ODI runs, while Hetmyer, Joseph, and Romario Shepherd have individual milestones on the horizon.

Led by Jos Buttler, the England squad features new faces alongside seasoned players, with only six members from the ODI World Cup squad making the cut. Replacement Matthew Potts joins due to an injury to Josh Tongue.

Jos Buttler, England’s captain, holds an impressive record against the West Indies, needing 39 runs to reach 5,000 ODI runs and 112 runs to complete 500 runs against WI. Sam Curran and Ben Duckett are crucial to England’s bowling and batting, respectively. Livingstone eyes the milestone of 500 runs in ODIs.

With both teams eyeing redemption and milestones, the ODI series promises thrilling cricket encounters between England and the West Indies.
