After losing their Test series 2-1, England’s cricketers have an opportunity to salvage something from their West Indies tour as they begin a 5-match one-day international series on Wednesday.
England are best price of just 2/9* with Bet365 to win the limited overs series, which gets under way with two games in Bridgetown, then visits Grenada for two matches before finishing in Gros Islet.
Expectations are high for the tourists, who are the favourites to win this summer’s World Cup at 23/10* with Paddy Power.
England have won their last eight ODI series to have been played over three or more matches, beating Sri Lanka and India since their 5-0 whitewash of Australia last summer. Since the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017, they have won 21 and lost six of 27 matches.
Their preparations for the World Cup will continue in May when they will face Ireland, play a five-match series against Pakistan and then conclude with games against Australia and Afghanistan before taking on South Africa in the opening match of the World Cup at The Oval. India are second in the World Cup betting, at 3/1* with several bookmakers, while Australia can be backed at 6/1* with Coral.
