West Indies

Their top-order collapse in the second match arguably cost the West Indies being 2-0 up in the series and they will want to lift their game.

The tail-end heroics showed just how dangerous the West Indies can be but the question remains; Can they string the performances together.

Fabian Allen was targeted by England in the second match and you feel the West Indies spinners will again be crucial to the outcome of the matches.

Jason Holder’s star turn makes one wonder why he was left out of the initial West Indies squad for the T20 World Cup last year.

England

England have made it clear that this series is about preparation for them and nothing could be better than a series of close contests.

In a series about blooding new faces, it seems odd that England persist with James Vince in their top order and we could see Harry Brook debut in the third T20I.

Reece Topley did well enough with the new ball to keep his place with England unlikely to play him and fellow left-arm seamer George Garton.

England should now have an idea of how to go about their business in Barbados having made some mistakes in their approach so far.

Verdict: England

England have turned the tide out in the Caribbean and look well-positioned to keep the pressure on the home side.
