After two gruelling Test matches, England and West Indies take centre-stage again at Old Trafford as they face off in the third and final Test, starting 24th July.

While the West Indies clinched a historic win in Southampton, England returned the favour last week, courtesy an inspired performance from Ben Stokes.

A lot of questions are hanging over both sides regarding the team composition. While England have their task cut out figuring out their best possible bowling attack, the visitors might have to take a tough call over the inclusion of Shai Hope.

Although the forecast throughout the week isn't ideal, England will be hoping for a series-clinching victory with Jason Holder's men needing just a draw to retain the Wisden Trophy.

Thus, cricket fans can brace themselves for a titanic contest come the 24th of July.

Pitch Report

With this being the second Test at this very venue, the pitch could be a touch slower than what it was last week. The pacers picked up a lot of wickets with the new ball.

However, one can't completely rule out the likes of Ben Stokes and Alzarri Joseph preferring a slightly shorter length to ruffle batsmen up and throw a spanner in their works.

With the pitch likely to provide some turn as well, the batsmen will have to grind it out in the middle.

Both teams would be looking to bat first with batting being difficult on Days 4 and 5, despite the forecast for this Test not looking too promising.
