Windies have all the problems

Jonny Bairstow

Having routed the West Indies in the opener at Old Trafford, England will bounce into Trent Bridge on Thursday with expectations of taking a 2-0 ODI series lead.

The hosts overpowered the Windies by seven wickets in Manchester on Tuesday, with Jonny Bairstow making the most of a chance to open the batting by making an unbeaten century.

He is certain to continue to partner Alex Hales, but his odds have shortened to 29/10 to be top team batsman, meaning that you might want to look elsewhere.

The England middle-order was barely needed at Old Trafford, but Ben Stokes came in to batter 23 not out from 10 balls and should the hosts lose wickets in Nottingham, 7/1 for the all-rounder to be top team batsman is something to consider.

With the ball, Chris Woakes impressed in picking up two wickets and only a dropped catch denied him the prize wicket of Chris Gayle in the opening over of the match.

After an injury-hit summer the seamer looks back to somewhere near his best and 4/1 to be top team bowler is definitely worth a second look.

For the Windies it’s hard to know where to look, but with the bat Shai Hope, so impressive in the recent Test series, looked well set before holing out in the deep when he had reached 35.

The classy right-hander is 33/10 to be top batsman for the tourists, who have now lost 11 of their last 13 ODIs against England.

They are 23/10 to improve that run by winning in Nottingham, but if that seems too unlikely to back, then take a look at the fall of the first wicket market.

Partnerships of 45 and 31 were put on in Manchester, meaning that 2/3 for the first wicket partnerships to be over 28.5 runs at Trent Bridge could offer a small return.
