How can one forget Gooch vs india @ Lords in 1990 >> 333 & 123 = 456 runs.

(Middle order batsman need 10 innings in 5 test series to mustered 450 but here Gooch did in single test)

England, West Indies chase bragging rights in a series to remember

July 23 2020

Can West Indies recover from their second Test defeat and produce an improved performance in the series finale?

Whatever happens during the final Test, which begins on Friday (July 24) at Emirates Old Trafford, this series will be long remembered. The first international cricket after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, played in two bio-secure bubbles in Southampton and Manchester without any crowds, with the backdrop of the Black Lives Matters protests and the games beginning with both sides taking a knee, the West Indian players raising their black gloved right fists. For a number of reasons, it has been a unique series and also, on the pitch, a fascinating one. With the series tied at one game apiece, the finale is fittingly set-up.

England's victory in the second Test was as dominant as the West Indies' had been in the first game at the Ageas Bowl. Ben Stokes did his best in Southampton but was unable to prevent Jason Holder, his rival as the world's best all-rounder, leading his team to victory. Last week at Old Trafford, Holder was powerless to stop Stokes's onslaught with both bat and ball and surrendered his place at the top of the ICC's world rankings to Stokes as a result. Both players have made crucial interventions in this series. Will one of them have the final say?

Holder will certainly hope for more support from two of his top three batsmen. John Campbell and Shai Hope are averaging in the teens this series and don't appear close to improving that form. Campbell simply cannot resist driving at anything full, a fool's errand in England, while Hope never looks like getting out until he does, usually between scores of 20 and 30. West Indies' middle order has stood up well, with Shamarh Brooksand Jermaine Blackwood looking the goods, but rescue missions from 30 for 3 will not always come off. There is also huge pressure on Kraigg Brathwaite, Campbell's opening partner, to make runs every innings.

Given this game is the third of three back-to-back Tests, an unprecedented ask of the players, and the fast-bowlers in particular, there is likely to be some shuffling of the respective packs. England's cohort of quicks have only played one Test each while Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Holder and Alzarri Joseph have played both games to date. West Indies' assistant coach Roddy Estwick said the quartet would be offered the chance to back up once again but that would be a significant risk, particularly for Gabriel who is only just returning from an injury lay-off. This is where England have a clear advantage. Their bowling stocks are deeper than West Indies which means they can rotate with less drop off in quality.

Whichever team fails to win this series will be left with an unenviable recent record. England have won just one of their last four series involving more than one Test - albeit that was a fine victory in South Africa at the start of the year - while West Indies' overseas record over the past ten years reads like a horror story: seventeen series played before this one and only four wins, two against Bangladesh, one against Zimbabwe and one against Afghanistan late last year. While both teams are clearly making progress in Test cricket, results are, ultimately, the yardstick by which every side is measured and they could both do with a victory to show for their efforts.

Not that any of the effort involved to get this series on will have been wasted. Far from it. Whatever the result, it has been a fine achievement to have even played these Tests and they have probably saved the game in England from financial ruin. That the quality of the cricket on show has been excellent is an added bonus. And while the uniqueness of this series will ensure it will be remembered, it should also be remembered for another reason: without the sacrifice of the West Indies, who have come to the UK, one of the worst affected countries, despite a 50% pay cut, none of this could have happened.

They have done English, and world, cricket a huge service.

When: Friday July 24, 2020. 11am Local Time

Where: Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester

What to expect: Having to prepare two Test match pitches in quick succession has been a unique challenge for the Old Trafford ground staff. They did a fine job on the surface for the first of the two Tests in Manchester, offering value for both the batsmen and the bowlers. A similarly sporting pitch for the decider would be welcome although the England camp expect the pitch for this game to be slightly quicker than the first. There's a tradition in the UK to ignore weather forecasts, so often are they wrong, and we must hope the Met Office is mistaken this week too. At present, they are forecasting rain on four of the five days.

Team News

England

England will retain the same batting line-up as the one the selected for the third Test, with Zak Crawley at number three and Jos Buttler wearing the wicket-keeping gloves at number seven. The remaining decisions involve the make-up of the bowling attack which will, according to coach Chris Silverwood, be their strongest. Presuming they stick with a spinner in Dom Bess, England could pick any three fast-bowlers from a choice of six. At this stage, the most likely trio is Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Jofra Archer but than could all change after training on Thursday.

Possible XI: Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler, Dom Bess, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

West Indies

West Indies may consider bringing in off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall after Roston Chase took five first innings wickets in the second Test. Raymon Reiffer and the uncapped Chemar Holder are the fast-bowling options if Shannon Gabriel and Alzarri Joseph don't recover from niggles. Given the struggles of Campbell and Hope - who have scored 109 runs between them in four innings - West Indies may opt to bring in either Joshua Da Silva or Shayne Moseley from the reserve squad as there is no spare top order batsman in the official 15-man party.

Possible XI: John Campbell, Kraigg Brathwaite, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Jason Holder, Shane Dowrich, Rahkeem Cornwall, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel

Manchester weather forecast: How rain at Old Trafford could affect the England vs West Indies third Test

Here’s a day-by-day guide for what to expect, according to BBC Weather:

Day 1: Friday
The first day at Old Trafford looks set fair with only a 10 per cent chance of rain forecast in the afternoon and evening sessions. It looks like it could be an important toss to win and bat first…

Day 2: Saturday
Saturday looks like the biggest chance of interruptions with rain expected before play in the morning and thundery showers and a gentle breeze expected throughout the day thereafter.

Day 3: Sunday
There is a slightly more optimistic outlook for Sunday but still a 20-30 per cent chance of rain from 10am until 4pm and cloud cover expected throughout the day. Could be good bowling conditions.

Day 4: Monday
The weather looks set to take a turn for the worse on day four with a minimum of 30 per cent chance of rain in the morning, rising to nearly 50 per cent around lunchtime, before tailing off slightly in the late afternoon and evening.

Day 5: Tuesday
The fifth and final day of the Test match could also be affected by weather with light rain showers and a moderate breeze expected

Archer missed the second Test in Manchester after he was fined £15,000 and forced to self-isolate for five days following revelations that he breached bio-secure protocols for this series behaviour.
