WI vs ENG Toss Prediction
The first ODI at this ground produced a high-scoring thriller with the side batting second emerging victorious. So the team that wins the toss here on Friday will probably prefer bowling first rather than setting a target.
- West Indies would have been disheartened after the opening ODI as they ended up losing even after posting 360 on the scoreboard.
- West Indies were very impressive with the bat last time but they would like their middle-order batsmen to score some more runs.
- England have now won the last three one-day internationals they have played against the West Indies at the Kensington Oval.
Our Pick: England are favorites to win
West Indies Team News & Playing 11
WI Team News
West Indies have no injury concerns heading into the second one-day international. Despite losing the series opener on Wednesday, the Windies are not expected to make any changes to their line-up for this match.
WI Key Players
Chris Gayle was at his destructive best in the first ODI where he cracked a big ton – 135 runs which included 12 sixes. The opener is the leading ODI run-getter at the Kensington Oval and the team will want him to go berserk again. Shai Hope struck a fine half-century and he along with Shimron Hetmyer and Darren Bravo are the other key figures in this batting line-up. Jason Holder returned pretty good figures of 2-63 from 9.4 overs while the rest of the bowlers were being smacked around the park. The skipper is one of the leading ODI wicket-takers at this ground with eight wickets in five matches and he will look to lead from the front when it comes to bowling. The Windies, however, will also need Oshane Thomas and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo to bowl well.
WI Recent Form
West Indies came into this series with a 2-1 victory over Bangladesh. They ended up losing the opening game of this series despite putting up a brilliant performance with the bat. Their bowling, however, was pretty ordinary as they failed to defend a huge total of 360. The Windies have now lost five of their last six one-day internationals.
West Indies Predicted Playing 11
- Chris Gayle, John Campbell, Shai Hope (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder (c), Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Oshane Thomas
England Team News & Playing 11
ENG Team News
England will be very pleased with their performance the other day. They might consider one change for this game; the visitors could bring allrounder David Willey in place of fast bowler Liam Plunkett who was the most expensive of their bowlers. The rest of their line-up is expected to remain unchanged.
ENG Key Players
Jason Roy and Joe Root produced stellar performances with the bat in the opening ODI. While Roy smashed his first century at this ground, Root hit his second and one can expect them to score the big runs for England again. Skipper Eoin Morgan looked solid in his knock of 65 and he together with Jos Buttler are England’s best men in the middle order. Ben Stokes is a danger man with both bat and ball. The allrounder was the pick of the bowlers last time with impressive figures of 3-37 from eight overs. Adil Rashid too picked up three wickets but was slightly on the expensive side. Chris Woakes took a couple and finished with an economy rate of 5.90. The fast bowler has now taken five wickets in two ODIs at this ground and he is more likely to trouble the Windies upfront with the new ball.
ENG Recent Form
England now have six wins in their last seven completed one-day internationals. Their last ODI defeat came against Sri Lanka at Colombo in the final game of the five-match series played last year in October. The visitors showed their batting strength in the last game after their bowlers took a beating. Each of their top-order batsmen made good contributions which made their chase of 360 look pretty easy in the end.
England Predicted Playing 11
- Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett/David Willey, Mark Wood

West Indies vs England Betting Odds
England begin as overwhelming favorites to win the second one-day international at very short odds of 1.30 on Betway, 1.36 on Bet365 and 1.33 on Betfair. West Indies are the bookmakers’ underdogs for this match and they are being offered at a much higher price of 3.60 on Betfair and 3.20 on both Betway and Bet365.
West Indies vs England Prediction
England’ victory in the first ODI would have surely dented the morale of the West Indies. The hosts looked set for a win after having scored a mammoth 360 but the visitors were just too good with the bat on that day and took the game away from under their nose. The Windies have now lost their third consecutive ODI against England at this venue and this is something that will further diminish their confidence. Their bowlers will have to bowl much better against this powerful English batting line-up. The tourists have gained momentum and we expect them to extend their lead in the series.
