The scheduled fixture is being played at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown in Barbados which commenced on March 16, Wednesday. As the match is on its Day 3, I have collated the top three betting tips from the WI vs ENG match prediction for you.

England captain, Joe Root and all rounder Ben Stokes started the day 2 of the second Test match against West Indies in Barbados on a solid note. Root was dismissed for a superb 125 which was his career's 25th Test century while Stokes went on to register his hundred before falling for 120. After the initial set back of losing Zak Crawley for a duck, England had come a long way to end Day 1 at 244/3. Alex Lees got out for 30 but the partnership between Joe Root and Daniel Lawrence lifted the English spirits. On day 2, it was all Ben Stokes as he hammered the Windies bowlers all around the park. For West Indies, Roach and Permual scalped two and three wickets each. Jayden Seales, Alzarri Joseph, Holder and Brathwaite took a wicket apiece. After England declared 507/9, West Indies finished the day at 71/1, still trailing by 436 runs. Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite is batting on 28, alongside Shamrah Brooks who is giving him company at 31. Matthew Fisher got the only West Indies wicket of John Campbell for 4. England will now look to come out all guns blazing with the ball and all eyes will be on debutant Matthew Fisher and on how he bowls. As for now, take a look at the best betting tips from the West Indies vs England head to head match on its day 3.

WI vs ENG Team Bet :

With the match on its Day 3, I have managed to pick that one bet with a profitable return from the WI vs ENG match prediction.

West Indies 1st Innings Runs To Be Over 298.5 Runs

West Indies have a massive target on their back. However, considering they have only lost one wicket in their first innings and have a line up of hard hitting batsman in the lineup they should be able to cross the 300 mark and tighten their grip on the second Test against the Englishmen. As seen in the first Test match, the host had gained a precious first innings lead on day 3. They had finished the day at 373/9, with middle order batter Nkrumah Bonner scoring a century. He showed incredible resistance, taking the hosts past the 350-run mark. The lower middle order too contributed with virtual runs, extending WI;s first innings lead by 62-runs. As it currently stands, skipper Kraigg Brathwaite and Shamarh Brooks have stitched a 59-run partnership and will be looking to strengthen their partnership heading into the day 3 of the game. In the first Test, the opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite faced 70 deliveries to knock 55 runs from them. Brathwaite and Campbell earned an opening partnership of 83 before the fall of the first wicket. The Caribbean side will be reliant on Nkrumah Bonner to do the bulk scoring for his side. He rescued the Windies in the final session on day 2 in the first Test after they were reduced to 127/4. He then stitched a valuable partnership with Jason Holder. With players like Jermine Blackwood, Jason Holder and Nkrumah Bonner in the lineup the hosts were looking to achieve the 298 target in no time. As for now, the Windies squad will be banking on Brathwaite to help his side post a competitive total. As for now, keep an eye out on Pari Match as they offer odds in favour of the Windies in the WI vs ENG team betting tip.

Kraigg Brathwaite and Shamarh Brooks will be opening Day 3 of the game for the Windies. Mentioned below are the top two WI vs ENG player betting tips for you.

Kraigg Brathwaite To Score Over 45.5 Runs

The Windies skipper had laid the foundation for his team in the first Test match against England where he stitched a 83-run partnership with Campbell to help his side reach a decent total. Brathwaite struck 55 runs from the 70 balls faced which was decorated with seven fours and one six, before being dismissed by Craig Overton. Brathwaite is a formidable opening batsman who has been a permanent fixture at the top order for Windies over time. He has featured in 76 first team innings to pile 3013 runs from them at an average of 41.27. Prior to joining this fixture, West Indies played a two match Test series against Sri Lanka where the opener had successfully pitched in with 72 and 41 runs in his first innings. From the 26 first match innings that Brathwaite has batted in, he has mustered 1097 runs at an average of 43.88. Both these averages bodes well with our bet and makes him one of the top picks against the English squad. Brathwaite was unbeaten for 28 from the 79 balls played before the end of day 2 play.

Lastly we have the top order West Indies batter who is playing a Test series after what looks like an interval of two years.

He last played a Test series against New Zealand, where the right handed batsman had scored 1 and 14 runs in the two innings played. Brooks' Test career averages 28.00 from the 18 innings played since his debut in 2019. He has featured in 9 innings against England and has an average of 31.12 from them. In fact in the three first innings played against England prior to this, Brooks has scored 4, 68 and 39 runs respectively.
