The good news for England was that Stokes did not bowl in a match that was touted by many as the Stokes versus Carlos Brathwaite 2.0. With Stokes not bowling it only proves the variedness and depth of the English attack. West Indies, meanwhile, will have to be more aggressive in the field while bowling. Jason Holder did not inspire much with the bat and his leadership skills were quite indescribable. West Indies might rope in Alzarri Joseph, whose pace could be handy given the dual nature of the pitch at Antigua. England, would rarely want to tinker with their winning combination.

With a 1-0 lead, the visitors will want to wrap up the series here itself and leave the third ODI for experiment, while West Indies will want to get a win and provide fan-less stadium at Antigua some sheer and joy. Ticket prices were as low as $75 yet one could only see the English bandwagon in the crowd.
