England cricket team has made a big comeback against West Indies in the 2nd Test to level the series 1-1 on Ben Stokes heroic performance at The Old Trafford, Manchester. Going into the third Test and final match at the same venue, the hosts again start as favourites on their prolific bowling and batting display in the 2nd Test.


The equation for winning the Wisden Trophy is simple, Joe Root led side need to win the last Test match starting Friday (July 24). On the other hand, the visitors only need a draw to retain the Wisden Trophy.


Jason Holder's troops had famously defeated England during the two teams' last meeting in the Caribbean Islands, so they will get to keep the trophy it they manage to eke out a positive result from the final Test.


However, the weather may spoilsport again as heavy rainfall is expected on Day 2 (July 25) of the Test match. Talking about the playing 11, England has a problem of plenty as bowlers are fit and raring to go with six pacers – James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes and Mark Wood, in the squad, out of which only three will find a place in playing 11.


Meanwhile, West Indies in all likelihood bound to make some changes given the fitness issue involved with Alzarri Joseph and Shannon Gabriel.
