Team Preview of ENG vs WI 1st Test Match Prediction 2024

England will look to rebuild their team from this series, and it is going to be one of the most memorable days for all the cricket fans who will witness the greatest test bowler, James Anderson, play his last match, which is going to be the sad part for all England fans. It is going to be one of the most important phases for England, which will look to keep giving chances to a new generation to take responsibility, especially in the bowling unit after Stuart Broad, and now it will be James Anderson after this match.

West Indies will look to do what they did against Australia in their last test match in January, as they won the match by eight runs. It was a match to remember for the West Indies in which Shamar Joseph picked seven wickets to win the first test match on Australian soil after 27 years, even after he got injured in the first innings. They recently played against the First Class Counties XI team, which ended in a draw, but the thing in that match was Shamar Joseph did not bowl any over, which seems a bit odd.

It is going to be a great match between the two rebuilding teams, but England will look to win both matches to set their tone high for the upcoming test series, which is going to be against Sri Lanka and Pakistan. We might see a few debutants in the series, too, who will look to be the successor of their legendary cricketers who retire from the test. Jamie Smith will make the debut in the first match against the West Indies in the absence of Ben Foakes and Jonny Bairstow. Gus Atkinson will be another bowler who is going to make his debut.

The other interesting fact about the match-up between England and West Indies is that in the last six matches, both have won 2-2 matches, but West Indies won the last match against the England side on England soil and that too by ten wickets which is a great achievement by him. Shamar Joseph also said in an interview that he always looked up to James Anderson and would look to ruin the farewell match for him.

He is such an amazing player. Someone I have looked up to. Someone who is very good at this level. You could say he’s perfect because he has a lot of wickets at this level. Definitely, I would want to ruin that farewell for him,”

Joseph Said
