VenueSydney Cricket Ground
Team England demonstrated reasonable cricket in the recently concluded Carlton MID ODI Tri-Series by qualifying for the final spot and lost the important game against the hosts, Australia. The Englishmen were defeated twice by Australia in the pool matches but they beat the formidable Indian side in the remaining two games as the Men in Blue were unable to win even a single one. West Indies toured South Africa, lost the five One Day International series at 1-4 and they were beaten all ends up by the home side. The Caribbeans will enter their first warm game vs. England and will try to gain their confidence while grasping it.
Ian Bell was the supreme batsman of England in the Carlton MID ODI Tri-Series and powered 247 runs at an awesome average of 61.75 with one hundred along with a fifty. James Taylor, Jos Buttler, Eoin Morgan and Joe Root are their compatible batsmen. Moeen Ali and Ravi Bopara have emerged into fine all-rounders while they carry a lethal bowling attack comprising Steven Finn, Chris Woakes, James Anderson, James Tredwell and Stuart Broad.
Marlon Samuels top scored with 196 runs in five games vs. South Africa while Chris Gayle, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Darren Bravo and Denesh Ramdin can be dangerous on their day. Darren Sammy and Andre Russell are world class all-rounders and rest of their bowling will be looked after by Jason Holder, Jerome Taylor, Kemar Roach, Nikita Miller, Sheldon Cottrell and Sulieman Benn.
