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.
