What time do the West Indies vs England T20Is start?
West Indies are currently in the middle of a rebuilding phase, trying to build up a squad of players to compete at the T20 World Cup in Australia.
The initial start has been shaky with their 0-3 series loss in Pakistan. The ODI series at home against Ireland also did not go to plan against Ireland, culminating in a 2-1 loss. But skipper Kieron Pollard will keep faith in the current crop of players and a series against England, one of the best white-ball teams in the world will be a big opportunity.
Eoin Morgan has stated that this series will be a chance to introduce some fresh faces in the set-up as they try to recover from the disappointment of the 2021 T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman.
The current squad in West Indies will be a mix of some established campaigners and some faces who will have a lot on the line in order to force their way into the reckoning. The visitors though will still fancy their chances of clinching a victory in the five-match series as the build-up to the tournament in Australia begins.
