West Indies and England will head into Day 2 of their second of the three match test series being played as a part of England’s tour Tour of West Indies. The match is being played at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. I have unearthed the top three betting tips from the WI vs ENG Day 2 match prediction for you.
Although the Windies grabbed the crucial wicket of Dan Lawrence at the fag end of the day’s play, it was a day that totally belonged to the Englishmen. England skipper Joe Root marched to his 25th test ton and also his 8th in 19 tests since the start of 2021. England did not have the best of starts as they lost opener Zak Crawley for a duck in the first session. But Joe Root and Alex Lees batted like snails and survived the session. Alex Heels later fell victim to Veerasammy Permaul after scoring 30 off 138 deliveries. The first session and a half totally belonged to the hosts as they found some movement in the pitch and also made run scoring difficult for the visitors. However, the Windies had no response to Root and Lawrence’s counter attack as the two added 164 runs for the third wicket in no time. Root reached his second century of the ongoing series. Dan Lawrence also seemed to reach his ton but gave away his wicket to Jason Holder in the penultimate ball of the day. After a draw at Antigua, the Englishmen will be hoping to put a big score on the board while the Windies will be looking to bowl out the opposition as quickly as possible. As we gear up for the forthcoming clash on Day 2, let us have a look at the top three betting tips from the WI vs ENG Day 2 match prediction.
Kraigg Brathwaite and Ben Stokes are my top two player betting tips from the WI vs ENG Day 2 match prediction. I am certain that the aforementioned players will surely earn you a lot of cash.
Windies opener Kraigg Brathwaite is my first pick from the WI vs ENG Day 2 match prediction. Brathwaite is known for his technique and his patience in the crease. Brathwaite is someone who likes to drive the ball with a proper technique which is soothing to the eyes. The 29-year-old made his test debut back in 2011 against Pakistan. Since then, the Barbados based cricketer has been the nucleus around the West Indies’ Test batting line-up. He has featured in almost 75 tests and has mustered 4490 runs at an astonishing average of 32.77. He has struck nine centuries and 44 fifties so far in his storied international career which has spanned for more than a decade now. Additionally, his stats against the Englishmen is something that just cannot be questioned. Brathwaite has played against England in 14 tests wherein he has amassed 871 runs while his average jumps to 34.84. He has also struck two hundreds against them in his career. He scored 55 in the previous game and was the top run-getter in the first innings after Nkrumah Bonner. Although his average drops to 23.00 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, we hope he changes it this time and notches runs for his side in the first innings. Therefore, we have backed Kraigg Brathwaite to be the top run getter for his side in the first innings. For now, go to Pari Match and place your bet on him at odds of 3.55 and grab some exciting returns.
Lastly, I have picked English all-rounder Ben Stokes from the WI vs ENG Day 2 match prediction. Stokes will be forever remembered for his fantabulous display with the bat in the 2019 WC final and led England to their maiden World Cup title. Earlier in 2016, it was Stokes who failed to defend in the 2016 ICC T20 WC finals against the Windies. Ben Stokes is one of the most explosive all-rounders and is known for his aggressive attitude in between the 22 yards. The 30-year-old has hammered close to 5000 runs from 77 tests at an average of 35.86. The Christchurch born cricketer has as many as 10 hundreds and 26 fifties to his name. His average jumps to 50.10 against the Windies and has struck 1002 runs from 14 matches. He has scored 13, 36, 20, 78*, 176, 46, 43, 48*, 79, 11 in his last ten innings against the same opponent. In the previous game, he scored 36 in his 95 ball stay at the crease in the first innings. Ben Stokes will come out to bat on Day 2 along with Joe Root after the late dismissal of Dan Lawrence on the first day of the test. Therefore, we are expecting Ben Stokes to score over 23.5 runs in the first innings. Head over to Pari Match and place your bet on Ben Stokes at odds of 1.68 and get some hefty returns.

The visitors have managed to post a total of 244/3 on the board at stumps on Day 1. The Englishmen have struck 28 fours so far and we expect them to hit under 52.5 fours in the first innings. First-innings centurion Joe Root and Dan Lawrence have smashed 25 out of 18 fours together. In the previous match, the Englishmen hit 46 fours in the first innings and only managed to score 311. In the following innings, Joe Root and co smashed 30 fours and declared the innings after scoring 349 at the cost of six wickets. England and West Indies met each other back in 2020 in a three match test series wherein the Englishmen smashed 164 fours in total at home. They averaged about 27.33 fours per innings in that series. Although a couple of batsmen including the likes of Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow are yet to come out to the crease but it seems unlikely for the visitors to smash another 34.5 fours on day 2. In the recently concluded five match Ashes series, the Englishmen smashed 228 fours in the overall series which averages close to 22.8 fours per innings. England have not smashed more than 52.5 fours in their last 12 innings. Therefore, it looks seemingly difficult for the visitors to hit over 52.5 fours even if they cross the 350 run mark. Therefore, we suggest you to bet on England at odds of 1.87 to hit under 52.5 fours in the first innings. Head over to Pari Match and place your bet against England to grab some exciting returns.
