Despite some quite miraculous late hitting from Akeal Hossein, England hit back to comfortably take the second match of the five-match series and draw level at 1-1.

The visitors were slow to get going in setting a challenging total, but some late Chris Jordan striking propelled them to above 170, which proved one run too many for the hosts.

I was right in my prediction that England would put in an improved performance in the second match – and I can see them exerting their greater cricketing talent and authority to take a 2-1 series lead. As part of my West Indies vs England betting tips, I also predict another big innings for Jason Roy!

West Indies vs England Betting Odds

Those that followed me in on the England bet in the previous game will have benefitted from an inflated price after their opening game loss to the West Indies.

I doubt they will go as high as 1.68 again – they are 1.61 to come out on top here, though, and I think that still represents value, which is why I am backing England in my cricket betting predictions.

West Indies Recent Form

The West Indies have surprised many with the nature of their performances in this series so far. They dominated England in the first match – demolishing their batting roster for 104 before losing just one wicket to successfully chase down the total.

England were the dominant force on Sunday – despite some superb late hitting, they were always in control of the match situation. The 1-run victory reads like a close affair – but the West Indies were thoroughly outplayed.

They are a tricky team to analyse, but their inconsistency means it’s difficult to ever back them with any degree of confidence.

Team News

There are no new injuries to report for the West Indies – they are likely to name an unchanged line-up.

Player To Watch: Akeal Hossein

If only to acknowledge the extraordinary hitting from Hossein on Sunday night, we are picking him as our one to watch for the West Indies.

The talented bowling all-rounder hammered 44 runs from 16 balls at a strike rate of 275 to launch his side within touching distance of England.

His heroics with the bat came after he bowled three overs for 15 runs and one wicket. These kinds of numbers are putting him in my mind for the Man Of The Match bet in the next game. If he replicates that kind of match impact and the West Indies win, the accolade will be his!

You can back him at 19.00 to win Man Of The Match with Betway.

Probable XI

Shai Hope, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Romario Shepherd, Odeon Smith, Akeal Hosein, Sheldon Cotteril.

England Recent Form

It was much better from the Three Lions – although it could hardly get any worse after the first game.

There was calmness and patience as they went around their work in the first innings, with the experience of Jason Roy, Moeen Ali, and Eoin Morgan paying dividends to set a tough target.

A victory over the West Indies could provide English cricket with just the filip it needs after recent scarring events – and I think they will come out on top with a win. It’s the main bet as part of my West Indies vs England predictions. 

Team News

The cricketing gossip columns are forecasting a raft of changes for the third Twenty20.

Liam Livingstone has recovered from a bout of oesophagitis and is available to play, while England squad newcomers George Garton and Harry Brook could also get some game time.

Player To Watch: Jason Roy

It was a perfectly timed innings by Roy, and one we are not accustomed to seeing. He had 17 runs from 23 deliveries at one point – but exploded into life and was on the verge of a half-century just six balls later before being dismissed for 45 from 31 balls.

He is an exhilarating player to watch at full flow, and he could be a good bet to bag 50+ runs – you can get him at 4.50 with Betway.

Probable XI

Eoin Morgan (captain), Jason Roy,  Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Liam Dawson, Harry Brook, George Garton, Tymal Mills, David Payne.

Venue & Conditions

The surface was much truer on Sunday than it was on Saturday, which explains the much-improved run rate and higher scores.

If the pitch holds together and the weather remains warm, as it is forecast to, we could see a run-fest.

West Indies vs England Head To Head

England’s victory on Sunday drew them closer to the West Indies – they are now within three games of their rivals with the head-to-head record leaning in favour of the hosts at 12-9.

I am backing England to further close that gap with a victory here..

West Indies vs England Toss Prediction

The West Indies won their second consecutive toss over England, but the decision to bowl first backfired. I am backing them to win the toss again and opt to bat this time around.

West Indies vs England Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back England to win at 1.61 with Pure Win

England’s victory on Sunday was deserved and not as close as the one-run margin suggests.They timed their innings perfectly to set a 170+ target, and had the West Indies seven wickets down with more than 100 runs left to chase – victory was never in doubt.

I expect more of the same from England here – regardless of any changes that might occur. They are an extremely talented short-format side with plenty of depth, and I think they will have to much once again for the West Indies.

I am placing my bet with Pure Win – they are easily one of the most generous Indian sports betting sites with their pre-match markets. You can find out more by reading our Pure Win review.
