Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction- Windies v England 2nd Test
The first Test brought a historic Test win for Windies as they brushed aside the visitors by a massive margin of 381 runs, their greatest ever win at home in terms of runs.
Jason Holder was the star of that match as he remained unbeaten on 202 and the team declared at 415-6 in the second innings. They then bowled England out for 246, courtesy of an 8-fer from Roston Chase. Earlier, Windies had dramatically bowled out England for a mere 77 in the first innings on the back of a formidable spell from Kemar Roach.
All the appreciation that Holder and Chase got is completely justified but one must not forget that it was Roach who set up the match with a fierce fifer in the first innings. Roach, Holder and Shannon Gabriel along with Alzarri Joseph will remain a force to reckon with while the spin of Roston Chase can also not be undermined.
After several comments that England got their playing XI wrong in the first Test, a couple of changes are expected. While Adil Rashid is expected to make way for Stuart Broad, the place of Ben Foakes is also under threat as the team already has the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler who can easily don the gloves behind the wickets. Chris Woakes might also get a look in.
At this time of a mini crisis, it would be expected that captain Joe Root steps up and leads from the front. Amid calls from coach Trevor Bayliss for the England players to show guts, the visitors are expected to bounce back and level the series 1-1.
