Despite an underwhelming fielding display which led to their loss against Pakistan, England have impressed in their two wins from three matches so far at the 2019 Cricket World Cup. They dominated at the crease against Bangladesh and provided a near flawless game against South Africa. No matter where you are in the world you can watch the hosts’ latest match by using our guide below to getting a England vs West Indies live stream.
While England had a solid run up to the tournament, the Windies struggled to reach the tournament having barely made it through qualification, but they’ve come good at the right time, with some sparkling displays in their early tournament fixtures.
Live stream England vs West Indies – where and when
Today’s match takes place today at The Rose Bowl, the amphitheatre-style home of Hampshire County Cricket Club.
Play begins at 10.30am BST. That’s a 5.30am EST and AST early morning start for Windies fans tuning in.
The two teams played out a high-scoring one day series in the Caribbean this winter, which ended in a 2-2 draw, with the latest showdown expected to be equally close.
England wicket-keeper Jos Buttler, who suffered a hip injury during the win against Bangladesh, is expected to be fully fit, back behind the stumps and should prove a boost to the batting order following his century showing against Pakistan. All-rounder Moeen Ali could also return to the side, and Jason Roy will be looking to add to his ridiculous 150 in his last innings.
The Windies will be hoping Andre Russell, their most dangerous batsmen, will be back in the frame after being rested for the previous match against South Africa.
It’s a big match for both teams and likely to be one of the most entertaining of this World Cup. You’ll be able to watch with ease from anywhere in the world if you follow our England vs West Indies live stream guide below.
