England performed a lot better in the second Test, but the outcome was the same, a draw. Can England dig deep and take 20 wickets to win the third Test and the series?

West Indies v England 3rd Test Tips & Predictions:
If you just glanced at the headlines of the opening day of the third Test, you would have seen Jack Leach and Saqib Mahmood getting all the plaudits.
You would be forgiven if you automatically thought they had taken five wickets apiece. Well, actually it was with the bat that they shone. The last two batsmen scored 90 runs between them as they guided the tourists from 114-9 to 204 all out.
Mahmood was the last man to fall as he scored 49 runs. England’s top order six batsmen scored 48 between them, which shows how valuable those runs were.
After playing two Tests on lifeless pitches, the track at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada looks to be a seamers paradise.
We all thought this pitch would favour the spin and slower bowlers, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
West Indies will be looking for a fast start. I am backing the amazing Kraigg Brathwaite to frustrate England and score the most runs for his team.
I think his team-mates will let him down, and I expect England to be batting again by the close of play.
Mahmood will be full of confidence after his batting performance. I am backing him to take that confidence into his bowling. Back the Lancashire paceman to take five or more wickets.
