Pivotal ODI showdown in Grenada

It’s still all to play for between the West Indies and England in the fourth ODI, with the winner of the match on Wednesday able to ensure they cannot lose the series.

The five-match programme is currently tied at 1-1, with the third ODI in Grenada on Monday washed out without a ball being bowled.

England to win fourth ODI @ 20/49

The same venue hosts the action on Wednesday, with England hoping to extend a run which has seen them not lose two consecutive ODIs since January 2017, having played 42 completed matches since back-to-back defeats in India.

Given their lengthy record of responding well to defeat, you suspect England will come out all guns blazing and have a little bit too much for the hosts.

However, should an ankle problem keep all-rounder Ben Stokes on the sidelines, you might want to reconsider and the Windies certainly offer plenty of value at 33/20 to win the match.

Rashid – top team bowler @ 16/5

England leg-spinner Adil Rashid is the second highest wicket-taker in one-day international cricket since the 2015 World Cup and claimed three wickets in the first one-dayer.

Seamers have held sway for most of the action in the Caribbean but Rashid will relish trying to score a few points for the slower bowlers on display.

Root – top team batsman @ 57/20

Test skipper Joe Root made a superb century as England opened the series with a win in Barbados and looked in good form again in the second ODI before falling for 36.

His busy style seems ideally suited to the 50-over format and, with a wealth of big-hitters to work with, Root is able to build n innings at his own tempo, which does not mean that he scores too slowly, far from it.

Opener Jason Roy (33/10) is also worth watching out for, having been the catalyst for an amazing run-chase in the first match of the series, blasting 123 from just 85 balls faced.
