It’s been a dozen years when West Indies last won a test match in England, beating them at Edgbaston back in June 2000, losing 12 tests and drawing only twice since then. Can we expect an improved performance from visitors this time? unlikely because English pitches will be fresh and weather extremely cold as 3 tests, 3 ODI and a twenty20 series is played out in months of May and June 2012.
West Indies arrive in England on 2nd May, play two practice games against Sussex and England Lions before the first test at Lord’s from 17th and second test at Trent Bridge from 25th.
