In the third Test match between England-West Indies at Old Trafford, Manchester, Windies captain Jason Holder gained the toss and determined to bowl first.
This is the decisive match within the three-match sequence, 1–1. Spin bowler Rahkim Cornwall has entered the Windies workforce. Before the match, Holder had mentioned that Cornwall may play the position of matchwinner and that’s maybe why this participant was given an opportunity in a tie-breaker match.
The Windies captain mentioned, "We will bowl first. Given the situations, there will likely be some moisture, we are going to attempt to take full benefit of this. <! –
