The Caribbean shores would be welcoming the Englishmen for a complete tour which includes 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is. First up is the Test series and the first Test would be contested at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.
The Englishmen are full of confidence as they have had a marvellous 2018 in all the three formats of the game. They remained at the top of the ladder in ODIs, humiliated world number Test team India by 4-1 in their summer and then secured a historic 3-0 clean-sweep in Tests over Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka for the first time in their cricketing history.
Windies, on the other hand, have had a disappointing 2018, first, they failed to win the World Cup qualifiers final against Afghanistan, did not had much success in the T20 format either, and talking about the Test scenario, they were taken down abruptly by India in their last Test series.
To possess an upfront challenge against a quality side like England won’t be easy at all, the only fact favouring them is that they are featuring in their home conditions which can help them kick-off their new year on a high note.
