1st T20I Highlights (D/N), England tour of West Indies 2019. Watch ENG v WI HD video cricket highlights today – First twenty/20 from Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia (West Indies) Tuesday, 5th March 2019. Morgan gets to insert this time. “We’ll have to bowl well and hopefully restrict West Indies to a total we can chase,” he says. Wood, Curran and Malan – whoops! – are the players to miss out for England. Bairstow is not only fit to play, but he will open and keep wicket, as well. “Not too unhappy,” says Holder. “[T20 captaincy] is a new dimension for me in terms of the leadership role. We’ve had some really good success in this format and the guys are really up for it.” Andre Russell is not fit for West Indies, while John Campbell and Devendra Bishoo miss out, meaning caps for Nicholas Pooran and Fabian Allen.
England won the toss and elected to field.
