12.40pm local: It's proper cold in Manchester, so it's not going to be straightforward to get this outfield dry. Looks like we'll be in for a longer delay than originally thought. Lunch reduced to 15 minutes to compensate for the time lost. Also, obviously, we'll start losing overs past the hour mark, which is 1.30pm local.
12pm local: Well, well, the latest I'm getting is that the toss will be delayed. The outfield at Old Trafford is a bit too damp right now. An inspection has been scheduled for 1pm local. What a dampener
England, of course, had made an important call in the middle of their Champions Trophy campaign - replacing the misfiring Jason Roy with Jonny Bairstow - and they've stuck to that in this series as well. Ben Stokes, who had been controversially rested for the one-off T20I, will make a return, as will Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali. Windies, on the other hand, are welcoming Chris Gayle back to their team after over two years. He last played an ODI during the 2015 World Cup. His presence automatically adds a certain lustre to their outfit. The weather is expected to remain clear today in Manchester, although it may get as chilly as it was in Durham the other day. We'll have the toss in a few moments..
cricket betting tips A loss in today's ODI for the Windies means they'll have to take part in the World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe next year. A straightforward yet challenging task beckons...they have to win 4-0 or 5-0 to push Sri Lanka out of the World Cup qualifying ranking ladder. There's plenty at stake. We've seen a glimpse of Windies firepower in the lone T20I a couple of days ago. Can they bring the same energy into the ODIs? England are playing their first game after the loss to Pakistan in the semi-final of Champions Trophy. They would be keen to fizzle that out of their system and build a team-to-reckon come the next global tournament.
Preview by Rob Johnston
cricket betting tips free A five-match One-Day International series tagged on to the end of a season which has been seemingly never-ending could be regarded as overkill. Hasn't there been enough cricket already? But for Windies, this series which begins on Tuesday (September 19) at Old Trafford, carries great importance for their hopes of automatically qualifying for the 2019 World Cup.
Windies need to win this series 5-0 or they need a 4-0 result with a tie/NR to move up to eighth place in the world rankings. That would grant them automatic qualification and ensure they do not have to take part in the perilous qualifier tournament with another ten countries which looks likely to be held in Zimbabwe next year. Only two teams from that will progress to the reduced ten-team World Cup so Windies will want to avoid that if at all possible.
Winning by such a margin against a strong England team in their home conditions is extremely unlikely despite the return of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels to the tourists' squad, in the former's case for the first time since 2015. Their T20 victory over England at Durham on Saturday proved what an experienced and skillful team they are in the shortest format but they are ranked ninth in ODI cricket for a reason, not having won an ODI series since 2014.
free cricket betting tips This is England's first ODI since their semifinal defeat to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy earlier this summer. They have retained most of the squad who took part in that tournament - only Tom Curran is uncapped - which is recognition that their selection and tactics are more or less where they need to be in 50-over cricket. In Cardiff, against a rampant Pakistan, it was England's execution which let them down but the fundamentals are there.
cricket betting tips free The home side, currently ranked fourth in the world, are building for the 2019 World Cup too, although they will be one of the automatic qualifiers whatever happens in the next two weeks. England welcome back Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali who were all rested for the T20I and will be in a confident mood, having won six of their last seven bilateral ODI series which included a 3-0 victory over Windies in the Caribbean in March.
When: Tuesday 19 September, 2017; 12:30 UK Time
Where: Old Trafford, Manchester
What to expect: The forecast is set fair for the day-night match but it will still be chilly during the evening. The pitch will offer some seam movement to the seamers early on given the time of year and the wet weather which has been around. But Old Trafford is renowned for its pace and carry too, so the batsmen should be able to play their shots.
Captain Eoin Morgan has decided to stick with Jonny Bairstow at the top of the order after he replaced Jason Roy during the Champions Trophy. Roy has scored just 51 runs in his last eight ODIs and was out first ball of the T20. Even though he has been an integral part of the ODI setup for the last two years, the skipper has given his backing to Bairstow ahead of the game. In the seam attack, Chris Woakes will open the bowling with Jake Ball probably partnering him which means David Willey and Curran missing out.
Windies will have a very different side compared to the one which played the T20 in Durham. Jason Holder returns to captain but Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine, man of the match on Saturday, have not stayed for the ODIs. Evin Lewis and Gayle, who put on 77 in just over six overs in the T20, will open the batting and Shai Hope, fresh from his brilliant Test series, should bat at four. Devendra Bishoo and Ashley Nurse will provide the spin options with Jerome Taylor and Kesrick Williams sharing the new ball.
Windies (From): Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Kyle Hope, Marlon Samuels, Shai Hope(w), Jason Mohammed, Sunil Ambris, Jason Holder(c), Rovman Powell, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Alzarri Joseph, Kesrick Williams, Miguel Cummins, Jerome Taylor
England (From): Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler(w), Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Tom Curran, David Willey, Jake Ball, Liam Plunkett
