England has decided in front of the Test against West Indies to be on congruity. They will be cordial with each individual from their 13-man crew through South Africa. That implies while the principle choices will spin around the make-up of the pace assault, Joe Denly is set to hold his place in the batting line-up.

Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, both of whom dazzled during England’s warm-up game this week, might be competing for one spot, while Chris Woakes is the allrounder alternative on the side of James Anderson and Stuart Broad. Sam Curran is among the nine who will stay at the Ageas Bowl with the crew. Recently, he was feeling sick but doctors found Covid-19 negative after testing.

Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali, are not playing this cricket test. Bairstow had been a competitor to come into the side without Joe Root, England’s Test commander who is feeling the loss of the game so as to go to the introduction of his youngster, yet just oversaw scores of 11 and 39 in the three-day warm-up; James Bracey and Dan Lawrence, who both got the attention with half-hundreds of years, have been held as the back-up batsmen.

For England, Dominic Bess is front line spinner

Dom Bess is at the top of the cricketers’ pack among England’s playing spinners, keeping out cricketer Jack Leach. Bess in his trips for Team Buttler guaranteed 3 for 72, while the other two went with no wicket for the team.

With having just left the camp, Root, and soon to be England’s 81st Test skipper Ben Stokes, the selectors have recognizable names for the game with West Indies.

The batting line-up can be finished by Ollie Pope and Stokes.  On the other hand, Jos Buttler holds the gloves with Ben as a backup.
