England vs West Indies 1st Test: Date, Timings, H2H, Predicted XI, Where to Watch


England is set to host West Indies for a three-match Test series, which will begin from July 10th. As the T20 extravaganza ends, the focus shifts to red-ball cricket. The England team will be back in the whites after suffering a 1-4 defeat in the 5-match Test series against India earlier this year. Meanwhile, the West Indies had scripted history in their last appearance in the longest format of the game. The Kraigg Brathwaite-led side pulled off a thriller win over Australia after a wait of 27 years to level the series 1-1.

England’s ‘Bazball’ was thumped by a resurgent Indian team as they will look to start fresh at their own home. The first match will be played at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground, and it will also be the farewell Test for veteran pacer James Anderson. The 42-year-old speedster, who has picked up 700 Test wickets, will look to bid adieu to red-ball cricket in a memorable manner.

England vs West Indies head-to-head record

As far as the head-to-head record between the two teams is concerned, West Indies have a slight edge over England. The visitors have won 59 out of the 163 encounters between the two teams. England has won 51 matches and 53 matches have resulted in a draw.
