Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions - Windies v England 4th ODI
After the third ODI got washed out, England and Windies are level at 1-1 with two more matches to go.
With the third ODI a wash out, the series has taken an interesting turn. Either team that manages to win the 4th ODI will ensure that they would not lose the series and the other team would then, at max ,level the series 2-2. This has changed several permutations and combinations.
England would look to include Chris Woakes in their playing XI who has recovered from his niggle, probably at the cost of Tom Curran. Ben Stokes was not included in the team's playing XI in the last match due to a minor injury and may be given some rest.
The team can decide to go either with Alex Hales in the middle order or compromise on their batting and give Tom Curran another go as he is no mug with the bat and can make some useful contributions lower down the order.
Mark Wood is looking in good rhythm and has staked his claim for a World Cup spot. Among the batters, the England top four in Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan will hold the key.
Chris Gayle has returned to ODI cricket and has scored a century and a half-century in the two matches that he has played. Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer are their other leading batters and have been on an absolute roll in recent times. Among the bowlers, Sheldon Cottrell proved his worth in the 2nd ODI and would be a major threat.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
West Indies- Chris Gayle, John Campbell, Shai Hope (wk), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder (c), Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell
England- Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Alex Hales, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood
