England odds-on to beat the Windies as Anderson ensures wickets tumble

Ben Darvill 24 Jan 2019

Can James Anderson finish off the final two West Indies' batsmen and give England a great chance of victory in the 1st Test? 

England enjoyed a much-improved end to the first day of the first Test with the West Indies as they had the home side teetering on 264/8. Shimron Hetmyer (56 not out) continues to be a thorn in England’s side, but James Anderson (4-33) did a lot of damage late on the hurt the home side, while Ben Stokes (2-47) struck with what proved to be the final ball of the day to remove Kemar Roach.

England’s late charge has seen the touring side installed as 4/7 favourites with William Hill to win the first Test, while the West Indies are 12/5, and a draw is available at 6/1.

Of course, a lot will depend on England’s batting, with the side looking to replace Alastair Cook as opener, meaning the spotlight will very-much be on Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings at the top of the order. However, England must first look to knock over the rest of the Windies’ batting lineup, and they will want to ensure they do not reach the 300 runs mark, with anything under allowing England to come into bat with a skip in their step. 

Can England continue their good form with another big day of cricket ahead?
