Joe Denly will make his Test debut when England play West Indies in the second Test starting from Thursday, January 31, 2019. The match will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua. The first day's play will begin at 10:00 AM Local, 2:00 PM GMT.

The hosts are leading the three-match series 1-0 after registering a record win by 381 runs in Barbados last week. The series will slip away from England with another loss while West Indies will register a historic series win if that happens. All these make the build-up to this Test huge and we can expect another great game.

Oshane Thomas added to the squad for the Antigua Test

West Indies might not change their side for the second Test.

Fast-bowler Oshane Thomas has been added to their squad as a replacement of Alzarri Joseph, but he might have to sit out for at least this match if Jomel Warrican plays. The balance which the hosts have to found with Roston Chase and Jason Holder in the middle is tremendous and will do wonders to their side. They haven't won two Tests in a row often but they won't have any better time to beat England as their visitors are under the pump.

Stuart Board likely to come back into the XI

Captain Joe Root on the eve of the Test confirmed that Joe Denly will replace Keaton Jennings who hasn't performed well in recent times.

Denly will open the innings with Rory Burns and also provide an extra spin bowling option to Root. England also axed Adil Rashid while naming the 12-man squad for the Antigua Test. Jack Leach and Stuart Broad were added to the 12-men shortlist, but the final decision about the XI will be announced right after the toss.

The Antigua pitch doesn't turn a lot, but it's actually the last two days when the spinner will come into action.

The track might offer some initial swing but there might just not be a lot of bounce which the bowlers can extract from the surface. There isn't a lot of rain around the area and there would be an ample amount of sunshine. We can expect to see bright and sunny weather on all the five days of the game.
