West Indies would be touring England in the month of august to September 2017 to play three test match series. As far as the possibilities are concerned, the Caribbean team is being asked to climb a mountain. The players are not oriented towards the long format of the game if the recent performance is anything to go by. On the other hand the home side is brimming with talent what with the likes of Root scoring huge runs in the test series.
Carlos Braithwaite will have his task cut out for the matches as he is expected to perform in an impeccable manner. West Indies bowling should not be wayward and they need to develop the required temperament in order to win matches. With superb line and length, it is important not to give home side many chances so that it runs away with the game.
Darren Bravo is a vital cog in the wheel as he can hold one end up to play a sheet anchor role and stop the fall of wickets. It will help the other batsmen to rally around him and play scintillating knock to post big total on the board.
English opening bowling attack with Broad and stokes would be handful in home conditions. They can swing the ball from the off stump and induce mistakes from the batsmen. West Indian players have to see off the new ball by focusing on their technique or they can launch into the attack straightaway in order to blunt the opposition bowling. All said and done, the Caribbean side has to play out of its skin to deliver the goods against an opposition which is rated highly in the world test rankings. It will be interesting to see how the tourists tackle the moving deliveries of the opposition attack.
