THE TEAM NEWS

WEST INDIES

Captain: Jason Holder

  • West Indies will be hoping they do not lose any of the momentum they had gained from victory in the second ODI following the abandoned third game in which they were hopeful of taking a 2-1 lead in the series.

  • The hosts had named the same side that defeated England in the second encounter of the series with the Windies relatively comfortable winners by 26 runs as they levelled the series at one game apiece.

  • It is likely they will again opt for the same line-up in the fourth match with Chris Gayle looking to continue his fine form as he leads up to his impending retirement whilst Sheldon Cottrell will again be hoping to cause problems after his five-wicket haul in game 2.

ENGLAND

Captain: Eoin Morgan

  • England will be hoping the abandoned third ODI will pave the way for Ben Stokes to make a recovery for the crucial fourth game after the all-rounder was left out of the team named for the rained-off fixture.

  • Stokes went over on his ankle in training and although he warmed-up with the team before the third game, he was not able to shake off the problem but should be fit enough for the fourth match of the series.

  • If Stokes returns, Alex Hales will be left disappointed after he was named to take Stokes’ place in the side whilst Chris Woakes was also back in the team in place of Tom Curran who featured in the second match.

THE PREDICTION

West Indies and England will both hope that the rain stays away as they look to continue what has been an intriguing start to the five-match series. St George’s will again be the venue for the crucial fourth encounter with both teams eager to break the stalemate with the series tied at 1-1. England collapsed in the second match but controlled the game for large spells and if they can maintain their focus here, they should take a lead into the final match of the series.
