In continuation of the ongoing England tour of West Indies series, England would be desperate to get a series victory after losing the T20I series 3-2 on the last match. England has undergone a massive change in their lineup with pacers James Anderson and Stuart Broad being the key missouts. Though the pacers were not to be fully blamed for England’s horrible performance in the Ashes 2022, experts claim it was the fault of the batters who failed to perform big for their side.
