Match Preview:

For England, there is the timing of the series. Even allowing for the effect of the World Cup, why on earth did the ECB agree to a series in April, so skilfully undermining the start of their own professional season? A question the departed chief executive David Collier is no longer around to answer. If England cannot overcome West Indies - even in the Caribbean - then their prospects in home Test series against the World Cup finalists, New Zealand and Australia, in this fast-approaching summer are not good .

Match Stats

1.West Indies have won only two home series out of their last 13 against a top-eight ranked side - one of those against England in 2009.

2.Alastair Cook has not made a century in his last 32 Test innings. Since July 2013, he averages 29.96, with a highest of 95 against India in Southampton last year. In 30 Test innings before July 2013, Cook had six hundreds and averaged 54.92.

3.Darren Bravo prefers batting outside the Caribbean. He averages 32.32 in his last 15 home Tests compared to 53.67 in 17 Tests overseas.
