As England and West Indies are set to lock horns in the deciding Test at Lord's, we take a look at few of the key statistics ahead of the encounter.

Team Preview:

If West Indies manage to win the third Test, it will be the first time they will achieve back to back wins in the same series against England in 1994.

A win for England at Lord's will be their 48th against West Indies - a tally they have against New Zealand and third in the list after 108 wins over Australia and 61 against South Africa.

West Indies have failed to beat England in their last seven Tests at Lord's (L5, D2) and the last time they emerged victorious at the venue was in 1988.

England have not back to back Test at Lord's since 2013 but they now have an opportunity to change it after previously beating South Africa at the iconic ground earlier this year.

West Indies have not won multiple Tests in the same series away from home against a team other than Bangladesh since winning two of a five-Test series against Australia in 1996.

England have been fortunate with the toss as they won it on seven occasions in the last nine games, including the two games in the ongoing series.

West Indies’ aggregate total of 749 runs in the second Test of this series was the most they’ve managed in a match since smashing 800 against Bangladesh in November 2012.

Player Preview:

Three more wickets for James Anderson will make him the sixth bowler in the history of the game to achieve the milestone of 500 wickets.

Joe Root with 108 fours and a six has scored the most boundaries in Test cricket in 2017.
