With a spectacular hundred from Sam Curran and a half-century from wicket-keeper Alex Davies, England Lions won the 2nd Warm-up match against Antigua Masterblasters. Sam also took 3 wickets along with Richard Gleeson.
WI, on contrary, will rely on Kieran Powell, Jermaine Blackwood and Jomel Warrican.
After whitewashing England A in the test series, Keiron Powell led WI -A would be looking to do the same in ODI series. On contrary, England is still looking for their maiden win in the entire tour. If we talk about today’s contest, playing in the home conditions WI has an edge over the visitors. They will enter the ground as favourites and are likely to turn out as the winner.
