West Indies vs England Match Preview 

West Indies won the 5-match T20I series at home against England in January and the remaining 3-match Test series will commence from 8th March.

The last time these two teams played a Test series was in England where the hosts won the series 2-1. West Indies has an edge over England in head to head stats for this format.

England has lost the Ashes recently with a margin of 4-0 and the team was in headlights for poor performance. They need to back themselves up from that defeat and work harder for this format.

West Indies vs England Dream11 Top Picks All Rounders, Batsman, Bowlers, Wicket Keepers

Joe Root

Joe Root performed well in the Ashes, with not only the bat but ball as well. He scored 322 runs and picked 5 wickets. With more than 95% selection, he is the top picked player. He is 400 runs away from the 10,000 run mark in Tests and has a batting average of 49.23.

Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes is one of the top all rounders in international cricket right now. Ben Stokes has been a key player for England in Tests since a long time now before he went on a break citing mental health. He has made a comeback and has skipped IPL to concentrate on the longer format. Stokes has played 78 Test matches in which he has scored 4867 runs and picked 167 wickets.

Jason Holder

Jason Holder is the 2nd top picked player in this match with around 95% selection so far. Holder has been performing quite well with the ball lately as we witnessed in the series against England and India but he is not able to score runs with the bat. He is still a top pick player because of his match winning abilities.

Kyle Mayers

Kyle Mayers has played 10 Tests so far and scored 636 runs including a highest score of 210*. He has also picked 13 wickets so far. Kyle Mayers is a good bet for the Test matches. Due to his less selection, he can be your stand out player as well.

Alzarri Joseph

Joseph is currently the top picked bowler with more than 80% selection so far. He took 6 wickets in 3 ODIs against India recently. He is highly anticipated to be the top bowler for West Indies in this Test series.
