England v West Indies, 3rd ODI, Bristol

England hold the edge over lacklustre West Indies

Bristol: After rain played spoilsport in the second ODI, England and West Indies once again lock horns in the third ODI at the County Ground in Bristol on Sunday.

However, the hosts will hold the edge over the visitors as they will be buoyed by their win in the first ODI where Jonny Bairstow stole the limelight with a fantastic hundred.

Ahead of the third game, the West Indies after putting up a lacklustre performance, will look to change their fortunes with an improved show.

Strengthened with the addition of Chris Gayle the Windies will hope that their batsmen can convert their star a s into big score.

Barring Shai Hope and Jason Holder none of the other batsmen succeeded in converting their starts.

Among the bowlers, off-spinner Ashley Nurse-managed to test the England line-up to a certain extent but the rest of them bowled expensive spells. The fielding also remains another area of concern.

On the other hand, England will look to play their natural game, having found it easy to score runs against the visitors.

The batting line-up featuring the likes of Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, and Ben Stokes all look in good form and will be hoping for a successful outing against Windies.

Teams from:

Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes.

West Indies: Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder (capt), Kyle Hope, Shai Hope (wk), Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Kesrick Williams.
