West Indies vs England, CGI United One-Day International Series, Game One, Sunday, 1:30pm
- West Indies v England
- CGI United One-Day International Series, Game One (of three)
- Sunday, December 3, 2023, 1.30pm UK
- Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound
England are back on the horse pretty quickly, albeit the vast majority of the squad that failed at the World Cup have either been dropped or rested.
A glut of up-and-coming hopefuls will play under Jos Buttler’s leadership against a West Indies side who failed to qualify for the World Cup but have a pretty decent recent home record against England. First, we have a three-match ODI series before five T20s.
England haven’t won an away Test series in the Caribbean from their last four attempts, they drew their last ODI series in the Caribbean 2-2 in early 2019 and lost the last T20 series over there 3-2 at the start of last year,
There are also plenty of new names in the West Indies squad.
Despite this, both sides still have plenty of quality. England are 2-9 to win the series, which doesn’t interest me one bit. But that means the West Indies are pretty juicy.
Bet365 have them at 10/3 to win the series, and I would be siding with that on a small-stakes approach.
I certainly wouldn’t be putting my house on it, but given England’s recent form, their poor record in the Caribbean and the short and sharp nature of the series, I think that’s a decent bet.
In late July, the West Indies lost 2-1 at home to a changed but still strong India. If they can get a score on the board, their bowling looks strong, with the likes of Romario Shepherd, Oshane Thomas and Alzarri Joseph available.
Finally, on the series markets, I will take the 7/2 bet365 are offering on Will Jacks to be England’s top series scorer.
He scored 94 and 39 against Ireland at the top of the order in September, so should get another chance in that position. He could take the game away from any opponent in a flash.
Brook can secure Betfair success
Harry Brook will be a key man in England’s white-ball reset over the coming weeks, months and years. He’s the type of talent they have to build a batting order around.
Betfair, via their #OddsOnThat selections, have priced Brook up at 10/11 to hit a four and a six in Sunday’s series opener. That is something which I very much like the look of.
West Indies leg-spinner Yannic Cariah has just enjoyed a brilliant domestic Super Cup campaign, claiming 18 wickets in eight matches, and Ladbrokes have him at 2/1 to take over 1.5 wickets in this series opener. I’d be taking that.
I also like another Betfair #OddsOnThat selection for speedsters Alzarri Joseph and Gus Atkinson to take 2 wickets apiece at 21/10.
Will West Indies keep Jacks in his box?
Surrey’s Jacks is 4/1 with William Hill to be England’s top batter in the first game of the series.
Plenty of runners and riders are at that price, just behind market leader Phil Salt at 7/2. But as, aforementioned, I like buccaneering Jacks.
Shai can give West Indies Hope
Just to finish things off, Paddy Power are offering a boosted 4/1 on captain Shai Hope to be his side’s top batter in the opener.
The middle-order man has been solid of late in West Indies domestic cricket and has a fantastic ODI record. He averages 50.4 across 118 appearances with 15 hundreds.
Bet365 are offering up 5/1 on a bet builder of West Indies to win game one and Hope to score 30 runs or more.
