ENG vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction: Hosts England will take on West Indies in the 3rd test match of the Historic Test series. The test series is beautifully poised at 1-1 and the winner of this match will clinch the Wisden series.
Hosts were brilliant in the last game and managed to level the series. Ben Stokes again proved why he is the best all-rounder across all three formats, he was monumental yet again and the captaincy of Joe Root was brilliant as well. England will be in a selection dilemma in this game as both Chris Woakes and Sam Curran bowled well in the last game but there is James Anderson and Jofra Archer waiting for their turn to get into the team. England would certainly prefer the later ones in this game.
West Indies were absolutely stunning in the first game whereas they crumbled in the last game. The top-order of the Windies has to take some responsibility or else England would again dominate in this game. Jason Holder needs to deliver as the team relies too much on him and Shai Hope would also like to prove his place in this side. Roston Chase has been a positive for the side and the team would make at least one change with Shannon Gabriel is set to sit out.
England would definitely want to this is historic series on their own backyard and the arrival of James Anderson and Jofra Archer will certainly make their case stronger.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
Pitch of the Old Trafford in Manchester proved in the last game that nobody would want to bat here in the 4th innings. Winning team captain would be tempted to bat first regardless of the climate conditions.

ENG vs WI Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
Shane Dowrich will be our wicket-keeper in this game. All the wicket-keepers have not fired in this series and that’s why the credits are managed by taking Dowrich in this game. Dowrich scored a half-century in the first game and he is a very good player, he is also the best batsman of the West Indies for the last two years in test cricket.
ENG vs WI Dream11 Batsmen
Rory Burns and Joe Root will our batsmen from the England side. Rory Burns has not played a big inning in the series but he has certainly looked solid and would definitely be looking to score big in this game whereas Joe Root is certainly one of the World’s best players in test cricket and there are no second-thoughts to have him in the team. Both of them would play a key role in this game.
Shamarh Brooks will be our batsmen from the Windies side. He was absolutely brilliant in the last game and proved his quality with the bat. He has scored 169 runs in the last 2 games and is the 3rd highest run-scorer. He will be a good addition to have in the team.
ENG vs WI Dream11 All-Rounders
Ben Stokes, Jason Holder, and Roston Chase will be our all-rounders in this game. Ben Stokes has been in a sensational form and is also the new no. 1 all-rounder in ICC test rankings. He has scored 343 runs so far in the series and is well ahead of everyone whereas he is also the highest wicket-taker of the series too.
Chase was brilliant in the last game and took a fifer in the first innings, he also scored a wonderful half-century in the first innings and proved his worth in the red-ball cricket whereas Holder failed in the second game but he is a proven cricketer and would definitely play a big part in this game. This trio of all-rounders would definitely play a big part in this game.
ENG vs WI Dream11 Bowlers
From England, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, and Dominic Bess will make into our team. Stuart Broad made a brilliant comeback in the last game and took six wickets with the ball, his line-length and swing were on point and he would be a threat yet again with the red cherry in this hand whereas Anderson is undisputable in the English conditions, if conditions favour him then he can tear apart any batting line-up. Bess has also bowled really well and has the neck of taking wickets. This trio can pick a good amount of points.
From the West Indies, Kemar Roach would make his way in our team. He bowled well in the last game and in the absence of Shannon Gabriel, he will be the senior-most player of the side and would be a good pick in this game.
Captain and Vice-Captain
The duo of Ben Stokes and Jason Holder will be our captain and vice-captain in this game respectively.
