England need to get what is a vital year for them back on track when they play their third and final Test of the series against the West Indies (England 8/11, Draw 13/2 West Indies 6/4 – Test match betting).

The loss in the second Test means the series is gone but it has also raised massive question marks over England’s so called positive approach, potentially highlighting a need to get back to a more conservative mindset.

England’s batsman appear unable to apply themselves for any length of time before attempting an unnecessarily risky shot which sees the stumps go flying, with both Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali were guilty early on in the second innings in Antigua.

Following a 381 run defeat in the first Test the margin of defeat in the second was ten wickets and right now they are not even competing in games.

Head coach Trevor Bayliss has already said he will step down after the summer’s Ashes series, but with England getting beaten in three days and losing a series where they were lacking in application, discipline and bravery many would question whether a change is needed before the series with Australia.

England are 8/11 to win the Ashes series, a draw is 11/2 and Australia are 19/10.

England need to rethink their approach, they have packed the side full of all-rounders who can bat and bowl a bit but the need for specialist batsman is glaring.

They also need a change of approach from coach and captain, not every match needs to be won playing swashbuckling cricket and England need to apply themselves at the crease starting on what will be a lively pitch in St Lucia.

Odds subject to change.
