ENG vs WI Dream 11 prediction | England vs. West Indies - 1st ODI preview | who will win

The test series has curled curtains, and now it's time for the ODIs to focus on the first match in the 5 Match Series at Kensington Oval in Barbados. The hosts were exceptional in the test series as they completely ousted the visitors in the opening two games.

England had made a comeback in the last test by a margin of 232 runs, but Windies had already gained an unassailable lead by winning the first two games.

Unlike the Test series, England would be a completely different outfit in the limited oversized format run by Eoin Morgan, and his squad is the reigning No. 1 on the ICC rankings. It is no easy task for the hosts to create a surprise even under the domestic conditions such as in the test series.

On the other hand, Windies were injured with three of their star players, opener Evin Lewis and all-rounder duo Keemo Paul and Rovman Powell. Their injuries meant that Carlos Brathwaite and Sheldon Cottrell were recalled while John Campbell, who made his debut in the Test Series, was also named.

England was astonishing in his warm-up match against Vice-President XI held in Barbados, where he beat the opposition with 171 rounds to prepare for the series.

In the context of the upcoming World Cup, this series is definitely going to be big for both teams as both sides are looking for perfect combinations that will definitely set the tone for the mega-event.

Pitch Report:

The surface of Barbados is always a tool for the slow bowler, as the texture of the surface tends to stay slow. This could also be the same thing, meaning that spinners can be present here.
