Toss and Teams: West Indies skipper Jason Holder has won the toss and decided to bowl. No changes in the West Indies eleven while England make four. As expected, Joe Root comes in for Joe Denly while Stuart Broad, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes replace James Anderson, Mark Wood and Jofra Archer.

Jofra Archer was dropped from the second Test match against the Windies for breaching the bio-secure protocols, while Anderson and Wood have been put to rest.

Teams:

England (Playing XI): Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Zak Crawley, Joe Root(c), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler(w), Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Dominic Bess, Stuart Broad

West Indies (Playing XI): Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich(w), Jason Holder(c), Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel

There are two wet patches that have caused some issues – one on the bowling run-up from the Anderson end and one on the pitch.

Revised playing conditions: 83 overs in the day. Toss: 12pm (16:30 IST); Start: 12:30pm (17:00 IST); Lunch: 1:30pm (18:00 IST); Tea: 4:25pm (19:55 IST); Stumps: 7pm (11:30 IST)

It looks a little drizzly. We hope rains won’t be an unexpected visitor at England vs West Indies second Test match. What do you think, will England win this second Test match or the Windies will lead again by a 2-0? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
