England team vs West Indies: Test and ODI squad lists – in full

Updated: 25/02/2024

England have named an unchanged 16-man Test squad for their tour of the West Indies.

Joe Root's men are in confident mood off the back of consecutive Test series victories over India and Sri Lanka and enter this tour as heavy favourites.

However, they will be wary of a West Indies side whom they have defeated just once in nine series away from home.

Test squad talking points

With just four Test matches before the start of the Ashes (three in the West Indies and one at home against Ireland), pressure is on this set of players to cement their place in the side.

Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings are expected to keep their berths at the top of the order, although still have some convincing to do before the Australians visit.

The experiment of Jonny Bairstow should continue at No 3 following his century in the third Test against Sri Lanka but he is unlikely to regain the wicket-keeping spot if Ben Foakes continues his superb form with both bat and gloves.

In the bowling department, paceman Olly Stone could get more of a chance in the Caribbean with England less likely to play three spinners, while veteran Stuart Broad will feel he has a point to prove after being dropped for two the last three Tests.
