ENG vs WI 1st Test Day 1 Highlights – 23 January 2019

1st Test, England tour of West Indies 2019, Watch WI v ENG Cricket highlights today – First test day one from Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados (West Indies) Wednesday 23rd January 2019. The pitch was quite the picture earlier this week – brown and mottled, and a pretty scary sight for batsmen who like to be able to judge a surface on appearances. But, on closer inspection on Monday, both sides seem to agree it’s not quite the monster that was being talked up. The England camp have described it as “tacky”, and crumbly, too, and a heavy night of rainfall won’t have helped speed it up. The weather, by all accounts, is lovely now, thanks for asking.

West Indies Won the Toss and Choose to Bat First

All the signs in the build-up to the series were that England would revert to a single spinner and recall an extra quick to form a more traditional 4 and 1 attack. That might still happen, but after England’s first sighting of what could prove to be a rather sluggish Barbados deck, thoughts have begun to revert to two slow bowlers. Jack Leach would be the more versatile option, though Adil Rashid was the man in possession at the end of the India series, and his ability to produce important partnership-breaking moments could still earn him first dibs. Jonny Bairstow is inked in at No.3 after a well-crafted 98 in England’s warm-up, with Ben Foakes’ place guaranteed as the first-choice wicket keeper after his storming debut series in Sri Lanka. Stuart Broad may yet lose out to Sam Curran, with England valuing the depth that his batting brings to the tail.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Kensington Oval has been under the scanner over the past few days on social media for its appearance. Keeping the slowness of the wicket in mind, both teams would be tempted to go in with two spinners and a couple of seamers. And if the track stays true to its nature, this might turn out to be a rather low scoring contest. Toss and teams are not far away, so stay tuned in for all the updates.
