Tough one to call at Basseterre


England went into the first T20 of the three-match series against the West Indies as the slight outsiders, but eventually came out on top in St Lucia.

Now they have an opportunity to seal a series victory in St Kitts on Friday although there is seemingly little to choose between the two sides.

West Indies to win second T20 @ 5/6

Both England and the West Indies are 5/6 to win the match at Basseterre so it is very difficult to pick a winner with any degree of certainty.

However, given the Windies have won all five completed T20 internationals previously played at Warner Park, they may just have the edge – even if those victories came against Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

The hosts are also 10/21 to hit the most sixes in the match, having smacked 10 to England’s three in the opening game of the series.

The tourists represent the value option in that market, with the Three Lions 23/10 to register the most maximums on Friday although the absence of the rested Jos Buttler does hinder their hopes.

Top team bowler – Cottrell @ 14/5

Left-armer Sheldon Cottrell has impressed during the limited-overs action against England, taking 3/29 as the hosts lost the T20 series opener St Lucia.

He made his 20-over international debut against England five years ago before dropping out of the international picture for several years.

More recently he has taken 10 wickets in his last four T20 international outings, so is clearly a man in form.

Top team batsman – Hetmyer @ 21/4

Left-hander Shimron Hetmyer cracked a superb unbeaten 104 in the second one-day international, but since then he has been out of nick.

Scores of 6, 11 and 14 have followed but Hetmyer has far too much talent for those struggles to continue for too long. He will be eager to prove his worth in a format where his top score is just 26 from seven innings.
