West Indies motivated by criticism as they look to upset England

Below the two openers, Tom Westley and Dawid Malan have yet to nail down their places at No. 3 and No. 5 respectively.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) has named South African Ryan Maron as the new head coach of the West Indies men's team.

"But, ultimately, it is still the same fundamentals of cricket and you've just got to make sure that when those hard periods crop up that we respond well and quickly".

"But if there's a city that's got the capability of holding day-night cricket in Bangladesh, India, the West Indies, England, wherever it may be, and they think it's more feasible to get people through the gate in the evening, it's important to adapt to that".

He may only be four adrift of Ian Botham's tally of 383 Test wickets, but equalling the England great's mark of five Ashes series victories remains Stuart Broad's burning ambition over the coming months.

"He has gone about his business very well over the past few days", Root told BBC Sport. So it might be challenging, but what an opportunity for him.

"They'll want, by the end of this series, to have a settled team", Atherton said.

Uncapped leg-spinner Mason Crane also misses out. Both have got experienced players who can perform relatively consistently and players who do unbelievably world-class things one day and, with a bit of inexperience, make mistakes the next.

"West Indies have played a pink-ball Test in Dubai and against Derbyshire this weekend".

"The Adelaide Test matches, I really enjoyed watching - the couple that had the day/night games".


Speaking to SkySports, Bairstow said, "With a red ball it is not ideal to be quite honest".

"I'd love to be a part of it", said the 28-year-old.

"Ultimately, it's still the same game and you still have to adapt to the conditions". Against South Africa he scored 131 more than his nearest rival, in India the figure was 110 and against Pakistan last summer 89.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis had been charged with ball-tampering by the ICC after the second Test of the series after footage emerged of him apparently using some form of confectionery to shine the ball - Du Plessis was ultimately found guilty and copped three demerit points, as well as fined 100 per cent of his match fee - so an unbeaten 118 in the day-night third Test would have been extra sweet. Twenty20 matches regularly pack out even the largest of grounds and the English Cricket Board (ECB) are hoping such a move in Test cricket will boost the following for the sport's longest format of the game.

"We will have to play well to beat them". "If you have a full five days, like we did a year ago against Pakistan, it's quite gruelling for everybody involved - whether it's the chefs, the groundstaff or the security guys", says Snowball.

"It's going to be some interesting times", Garner said.

West Indies have arrived with a youthful side, missing several of its leading stars, like Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo.

Pace bowling looks to be their strength in the shape of Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Alzarri Joseph and captain Jason Holder.

The Surrey left-hander, who will become Alastair Cook's 15th opening partner for England, was named in the side on Wednesday, the first of the three-Test series, in place of the struggling Keaton Jennings.

"We're obviously huge underdogs", said Holder.
