The West Indies have failed to turn up in this last test and it looks like Day 4 is going to be the last day of the test match.
Jason Holder and Shane Dowrich fought hard as they took the West Indies past the follow-on target. They could not however do anything much more after that.
Once the first wicket fell the lower order showed no resistance as Broad just ran through all of them in a jiffy.
England started its next stint in no hurry. The openers took their time but the lead was so much that one quick inning from Joe Root allowed England to declare on the third day itself.
Stuart Broad continued his fantastic day and picked up two more wickets in the six overs that England bowled. He’s already the leading wicket taker of the series and he has played one test match less than his closest competitors. Any debate about his place in the team is decisively settled.
It will take a brave and perhaps a foolish man to bet on anything but a West Indies win at this stage of the match. The West Indian batting has not shown any great promise in recent innings and the players look very tired.
The weather is the only thing that can save the visitors. The forecast for Monday is not very good. There is a lot of rain forecast and the West Indies would be hoping for nothing less than a complete washout.
We have been lucky with the rain so far but it appears as if any cricket we get on Day 4 is going to be a bonus.
Stuart Broad is on 499 wickets and will be steaming in when he gets the chance to do so. Anderson has been a bit unlucky but we found Archer and Woakes to be a bit disappointing. England could give Bess more of a role now that the pitch is wearing a bit as well.
This is the West Indian batsmen’s to shine. We expect some resistance from the middle order but nothing much apart from that.
This is one of the best bets available for Day 4 and we are frankly a bit surprised you can get such good odds for it. The English bowlers are completely on top and two batsmen are already back in the hut.
One or two more wickets early on and the West I dies could struggle to get to 150 also.
The risk here is that England give away runs in search of wickets but that is not how the England skipper usually likes to operate.
An on-fire Stuart Broad on the brink of a major milestone and with a weak West Indian batting in front of him. What else do you need?
We are hoping that Broad will get the best opportunity to pick wickets in this inning. Just three more scalps and you can win this relatively safe bet.
Stuart Broad to pick 10 wickets in the match is also available for 1.28. That just shows how heavily favored he is in this match and just how much better odds you are getting for a second innings fiver.
The second day of the Third Test between England and West Indies was full of action. The West Indian fast-bowlers made the most of the second new ball as they took four wickets in just seven overs. Unfortunately for them, though, Stuart Broad took this moment to showcase a batting revival.
Broad reeled off a fifty off just 33 balls and smashed the ball to all parts of the ground.
His innings snatched all the momentum from the West Indies, which was later reflected in their batting as well.
Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Jofra Archer, and Chris Woakes put an absolutely brilliant display of fast-bowling to leave the West Indies team struggling at 137 for 6. With Jason Holder and Shane Dowrich at the crease, there is nothing much to follow.
Rakheem Cornwall is a big-hitter of the ball and could score some runs but the chances of a West Indian collapse are pretty high from here on in.
The weather has held up so far and it appears as if we may continue to get lucky. There may be some rain and some issues with the light but for most of the day, we should be able to get playable conditions.
England bowled close to 50 overs yesterday and did not give their lead spinner a single over. This shows how little they trust Bess at the moment and so we don’t think he is going to come into the attack for the first hour again.
Broad and Anderson will be given the best chance to wrap up this West Indian inning.
Jason Holder looked more assured at the crease than Shane Dowrich and we just cant help shake the feeling that a wicket is around the corner. We really hope that Cornwall plays his natural game and gets as many runs as he can quickly.
Day 3 is set up to be the day when England marches ever closer to victory.
We have two cricket bets that we like for the day 3 of this match. We feel both of these can be potentially rewarding.
This is our banker for the day. We saw how difficult it was for the English batsmen in the first hours of Day 2. Yes, England does not have the new ball yet but we don’t see the West Indies batsmen being able to hang around for too long.
West Indies is currently on 137 for the loss of six wickets. Scoring another 90 runs could be a challenge especially with Dowrich looking so edgy.
Excellent odds on offer for a bet that we think is a quite good.
Carrying on the same theme, we don’t think Dowrich is going to be able to turn things around for himself with the bat. He edged the ball, was nearly caught twice, and was very unsettled at the crease for the entire duration of his stay.
He is batting at 10 right now. Another 20 may be a bridge too far for him.
This is another relatively safe bet in our opinion.
The first day of the third test between England and the West Indies was thankfully free of rain. We saw 85.4 overs being bowled at the end of which England was 258/4. Two of the wickets to fall fell to Kemar Roach, one to Roston Chase, and one was a run-out (also by Chase).
A couple of close calls did not go the West Indies way with LBW decisions and a few edges fell short of the fielders but that is how the game goes. England would have been the happier team at the end of Day 1 for sure. They have a well-set pair at the crease that can accelerate and take the match decisively away from the West Indies.
Ollie Pope is batting on 91 while Jos Buttler is on 56.
England has played an extra bowler so there is not too much batting to come after this pair. West Indies will know that a quick couple of wickets and they could run through the English lower-order.
We saw the ball grip a little on the first day and there is no doubt that the spinners are going to be very important as the match goes on. Choosing to bowl after playing two spinners on a pitch where batting first is a huge advantage was a massive blunder by Jason Holder in our opinion.
There is some rain predicted for most of the day on Day 2 but the forecast is actually better than it was a couple of days ago. Fingers crossed we will not have a massive loss of play. The light towards the end is also going to be an issue.
We expect Ollie Pope and Jos Buttler to start cautiously before become more aggressive as England gets past 300. Woakes, Bess, and Archer can all hang around so there is a lot of work still to be done for the West Indies.
Kemar Roach was the pick of the bowlers and is going to be the biggest threat once more. Rakheem Cornwall also bowled pretty well without reward. He might tempt some mistakes from the lower order when he gets the chance.
We have two cricket bets that we like for the day 2 of this match. We feel both of these can be potentially rewarding.
The weather is around and the only way that England even has a chance of winning this match is by batting as long as possible and getting the most runs it can in the first innings. Ollie Pope and Jos Buttler can be nervy starters but after the initial few minutes they will have a spread-out field, tired bowlers, and plenty of runs behind their names. Another potentially rewarding bet.
Buttler just has one century to his name in Test cricket and is under pressure to score some runs. He is very good against the spinners and can bat well with the lower order too if Ollie Pope gets out. He is already batting on 56 and a couple of quick boundaries will ensure you never see this price again.
There is very little stopping Buttler from getting to a century and so we recommend getting on this bet.
We have had two amazing test matches played between England and the West Indies so far. Both the matches went to the fifth day and kept the spectators on the edge of their seats. The series is level at 1-1 going into the third and final test. There is everything to play for and both the teams are going to want to win this match and the series.
The venue for the third test is the same as the second one, Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. A different pitch will be used but we could see even more turn in this match than the previous one.
This is the third back to back match that teams are going to be playing and so fatigue is going to play a big role in team selection. We expect a few changes for both teams.
England vs West Indies third test match is going to be played at the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester starting on the 24th of July 2020.
Ben Stokes continued to show why he is the best all-rounder in the world as he won the previous match for England. He scored runs in both innings and took crucial wickets when needed. As an all-rounder, the load on him is more than most other players and even pulled up in the second inning while bowling.
We don’t think England can afford to rest him for the decider but his bowling load may be greatly reduced.
Chris Silverwood, the chief selector, has said that England will play its best side for the third test. This means that James Anderson and Jofra Archer should come back into the team. Chris Woakes and Sam Curran might miss out which will be particularly harsh on Curran but such is the competition for spots in the England team.
Dom Bess had a very poor match and is going to be under pressure. Just one wicket to his name in the fourth inning is not what England needs from its best spinner. He will keep his place in the team for this match but another bad match could see him miss out against Pakistan.
The batting lineup is going to be the same for this match. Burns, Sibley, Crawley, and Root are not the most assured top-4 going around. Root is looking for runs on his comeback and even though all the other three have runs in one inning, they need to be more consistent.
England had to play some special cricket because of the rain otherwise this match would have been won comfortably. They are going to be confident of getting a win in the third match as well and have the depth to field a fresh yet potent attack.
Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, JE Root, BA Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler, CR Woakes, Dominic Bess, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.
Phil Simmons has spoken about some possible changes being made to the squad after the second test and we think it is inevitable. The West Indies went I with the same bowling attack for the first two tests and there is just no way the same set of bowlers is going to last another test.
Shannon Gabriel is the one that we think will miss out with Raymon Riefer likely to get a call-up. John Campbell’s horrific run with the bat and exceptionally bad fielding singled him out for some harsh words from the coach as well.
The West Indies could well choose to blood in a youngster like Joshua Da Silva who scored runs in the warm-ups or maybe recall Sunil Ambris. The bigger questions may be regarding Shai Hope. He has not scored a single century after the two in a match in Headingley. Hope continues to be one of the best ODI batsmen for the West Indies but his test form has been very poor for very long now.
Nkrumah Bonner may be given a chance in this test although that could mean a very inexperienced batting lineup for the West Indies.
The bowling attack is going to suffer without Shannon Gabriel. Kemar Roach has bowled well without much luck. He, Jason Holder, and Alzarri Joseph, and Roston Chase will struggle to keep a resurgent England batting lineup under control.
A left-field choice would be the inclusion of Rakheem Cornwall in place of one of the batsmen. Cornwall is a very good off-spinner that can partner with Chase and take advantage of the conditions as they become spinner-friendly. He is also more than a useful batsman that can score quick runs.
We are afraid that the West Indians have already played their best cricket. They are going to struggle to compete in this match as the lack of depth in their team starts to become apparent.
Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich, Jason Holder, Rahkeem Cornwall, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. We don't think any team is going to make the mistake that the West Indies made in the previous match. No team has ever won a test after choosing to bat second at Manchester.

A pitch just two strips next to the one used in the second test is going to be used for this match. We have heard some talk about it being faster than the one used for the second test but that seems unlikely. If anything, there is going to be more turn in this pitch than the one used earlier.
The weather is a big concern for this test match, though. There has been rain forecast every single day with the second day likely to be the worst affected. We may not have enough time for a result in this match which would let the trophy remain with the West Indies.

Winning the toss and batting first is going to be a huge advantage in this match. That being said, we just don’t think the West Indies is going to be able to compete with England in this match. England’s batting is stronger and there is much more depth in the bowling resources.
England is also going to be lining up with a much more experienced lineup in this match.
Bet on England to win and hedge for the draw as the rates become favorable.
We have two bets that we like for this match. One is relatively safe with average returns while one is more risky with better returns. We think both could pay off in this match.
Any Player to Score A Century In The 1st Inning - Yes (1.75)
This bet paid off for us big time in the second test and we think we are going to make money on it a second time as well. The pitch at Manchester is going to be the best for batting in the first inning. Both teams will try to bat for as long as possible in the first inning and so there is no need for any set batsman to throw away their wicket.

To Score 50+ Runs 1st Inning – Rory Burns (2.87)
England has shown just how much stronger its batting is when compared to the West Indies in the previous match. Rory Burns missed out in the second match and is going to be hungry for runs. He has looked good without capitalizing on his form. This could be the time to back him.
1st Inning Top Batsman – Roston Chase (6.50)
Chase was the best batsman for the West Indies in the previous match and is being offered at an excellent rate now as well. Looking at the other batsmen in the West Indian lineup, there is an excellent chance that Chase could end up being the highest scoring batsman in this match as well. Kraigg Brathwaite is the only real threat and he is going to be facing the new ball with the English bowlers at their freshest.
