West Indies vs. England First Test Betting Predictions

In terms of Test cricket, the West Indies and England have a very intriguing history, and their rivalry is much closer than you might think. West Indies is no more the force than it once was, but it hasn’t lost to England at home in almost two decades. Both clubs are experiencing major changes as they aim to regain their footing following some disappointing outcomes. From a betting standpoint, this might be a really entertaining series.

West Indies vs. England, 1st Test, 2022, match prediction and cricket betting tips. It will hold the match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua, beginning on March 8, 2022.



West Indies has parted ways with a couple of top test players, including as Shai Hope and Roston Chase, at least for the time being, and has selected other players who will make a comeback. The batting line-up’s general strength isn’t terrific, but it’s also not horrible. Players such as Nkrumah Bonner, Shamarh Brooks, Kyle Mayers, and Kraigg Brathwaite might provide problems for England’s bowling squad. West Indies’ lineup also includes John Campbell and Jermaine Blackwood, both of whom have had previous success against England.

Jason Holder is maybe the most well-known player on this team. He enjoyed his best-ever test series against England a few years ago, and has never quite reached similar heights as a batter again. We believe that a little bet on Bonner or Holder to be the top batter for West Indies in the first inning would be a good idea. The West Indies’ top bowlers will be Kemar Roach, Jason Holder, Jayden Seales, and Alzarri Joseph. They have a wealth of knowledge and expertise between them and thrive in domestic settings. Our two choices for the Top Bowler West Indies betting market are Jason Holder and Jayden Seales.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11:

Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Jermaine Blackwood (vc), Shamarh Brooks, Nkrumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers, John Campbell, Joshua Da Silva, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales


England will be without Ben Stokes for the rest of the series as he recovers from injury. There is no doubt in our minds that England is a worthy favourite to win this match and the series. Sure, England’s recent series in the West Indies have not gone our way, but we must remain aim about what is ahead. With Root moving to number three, Zak Crawley and Alex Lees appear to be in line for a lengthy run in the opening spot. Root is England’s most essential player, and his previous transfer to number three did not go as planned.
