Preview

England and West Indies will face-off for one last time in the three-match Test series. The series is levelled with one match to go and both the sides will give their best efforts to win the Wisden Trophy. It is currently with the visitors and a draw is also enough for them to retain the trophy. However, England go in as favourites after they made a comeback in the previous game.

Weather Report

The skies will stay cloudy throughout the five days for this match. Rain might not be much of a hindrance but light can be.


Pitch Report

The surface at the Old Trafford is likely to help the pacers again thanks to the weather conditions. However, the pitch is also decent for batting if you bat like Sibley and Stokes.
