Andre Russell withdraws from the series

Obed McCoy has been added to the squad before the second T20I as a replacement of Andre Russell, who announced his withdrawal from the series due to a reaction in his body which he had during his time in the UAE.

According to the Cricbuzz report, McCoy may not be part of the XI which takes the field in the second T20I. West Indies will continue to back the same side as they prepare for the World Cup as a goal. The team management would hope that this combination gives them some results as they did in the ODI series.

England went with a new-look side for the first T20I and while some may argue, the bowling decided the faith of the match. England's bowling has been a bit of a concern but Chris Jordan and Tom Curran made a case for themselves in the first T20I.

David Willey bowled just two overs in that game, but his batting abilities could give him a spot in the second game as well. If England decides to make any change, Mark Wood could get a chance.

St Kitts has been known for its small boundaries and a good batting tracks.

According to the Cricbuzz report, this venue has had several high-scoring games during the Caribbean Premier League and considering the limited overs series so far, even this game could see some high scores.
