Windies have continued to strangle the visitors in the ODI series as well. Rather after the first couple of matches, the Caribbean side has gained more than their opponents while England have a few issues to address. Their bowling especially has been poor conceding 360 and 289 runs in the first two ODIs so far. Also, the collapse in the previous game has raised a few questions.
Jason Holder-led Windies, on the other hand, defied the odds in the second match as someone or the other put their hand up when the team needed runs with the bat and breakthroughs with the ball. With series levelled at 1-1 now, the third ODI becomes massive for both the teams and they would be eyeing to take a crucial lead. Both the teams are expected to go unchanged into this game and hope for the best.
