West Indies v England 4th Test preview

England go into the crucial fourth Test with an injury ravaged bowling attack, Andrew Flintoff has been ruled out with a hip injury, while Steve Harmison and Graeme Swann are nursing back and elbow injuries respectively. They're both expected to be fit but how many overs will the Three Lions be able to get out of them?

Andrew Strauss and the selectors have some tough choices to make now as they look to square the series, do they keep faith with Swann and risk a flare up of his problematic elbow or do they turn to Monty Panesar who so far has been disappointing in this tour of the Caribbean.

Also the absence of Flintoff means that a sizeable gap has opened up at number six. Ravi Bopara has done his chances of filling that slot no harm at all after smashing 124 in just 125 deliveries in the recent tour match against a President's XI. But a recall for Ian Bell cannot be discounted either after he also scored well with knocks of 44 (off 53) and 72 (off 91).

Tim Ambrose will take the gloves off Matt Prior after the Sussex wicketkeeper flew home to be with his wife Emily after she gave birth to their first child.

The West Indies have no such fears as far as their team is concerned, with no new injury problems to worry about they will more than likely name the same team which performed so heroically in the final innings to secure a draw in the third Test.

For the West Indies to wrap up the series at the Kensington Oval, they'll require a home win and that is available at 9/4. If you think Chris Gayle's team can frustrate England again and earn a draw (which the Bridgetown crowd have only seen three times in the last 15 Test matches) you can get 8/5 on that. But England are favourites for the match, as they desperately hope to level the series and give themselves a chance of winning The Wisden Trophy, and an away win for the Barmy Army to celebrate is priced at 6/4.

The action gets underway in Barbados at 14:00 and you can be sure that William Hill's betlive service will deliver, we offer a huge range of in-running markets including; next man out, method of dismissal, total session runs and many, many more.
