Southampton: Jun 16, 2012

The first ODI between England and the West Indies will be witness the comeback Ian Bell in place of retired Kevin Pietersen.

If West Indies are to pave their way to revival, then their top order will have to put in a performance much unlike the one that was demonstrated in the Test series.

England on the other hand, will want to replicate the performance of their Test series in the one day format, something that they haven’t done very consistently in the past.

In the last two years the ‘Three Lions’ have lost 21 off the 48 ODIs that they have played and their home record is 14 wins in 23 matches, which isn’t bad but for their quality they would like it to be higher.

Teams:

England: Alastair Cook(c), Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott, Ravi Bopara, Eoin Morgan, Craig Kieswetter(wk), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Steven Finn, James Anderson

West Indies: Dwayne Smith, Lendl Simmons, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Denesh Ramdin(wk), Andre Russell, Darren Sammy(c), Ravi Rampaul, Sunil Narine
