England have shown some positive signs in the first two Tests against West Indies and will hope to finally get a win on the board in the crucial third and final clash and win the series in Grenada this week.

The first two Tests have ended in frustrating draws as the Windies defied England's bowlers and successfully batted out on the final day in similar fashion in both Antigua and Barbados.

It means there's all to play for when the action resumes on Thursday and, after skipper Joe Root and inspirational all-rounder Ben Stokes both scored centuries at the Kensington Oval, the tourists should finally get the job done and edge out their stubborn hosts in the decider.

West Indies vs England Betting Odds

odds

England have been the side pushing for victory come the final day in the first two encounters, so are understandably favourites at 5/4 to win the third Test, the Windies are available at 7/2 and another stalemate draw is on offer at 13/8. England or draw in the Double Chance market is 1/5, West Indies or draw is 8/13.

Neither side has too many options if they were considering making changes for the final Test and it could be both are unchanged for the Grenada showdown. Leg-spinner Matt Parkinson could be given a chance for England but the batting line-up should remain the same.

West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite scored an 11-hour 160 in the first innings of the second Test and then dug in for 184 balls when making his dogged 56 not out to deny England in his second innings. The opener faced 673 balls in Barbados in total - the most by a West Indies batter in Test history - and he is likely to be the key man again for the home side.

England to win - BET NOW

England's dismal recent Test record has seen them win just one of their last 16 matches and they have so far been frustrated in the Caribbean when hoping to right the wrongs of the 4-0 Ashes defeat in Australia over the winter. 

Evidence from the first two Tests suggests the hosts will again make it difficult for Root's side as England go in search of their first series win in the West Indies since 2004. The slow pitches in Antigua and Barbados have not helped the tourists and it could be a similar scenario in Grenada with Jack Leach in need of another frontline spinner to help him out.

However, Root, Stokes and Dan Lawrence all excelled with the bat in the second Test and if they put in similar performances, England can finally secure a much-needed victory.
