West Indies vs England 1st Test Live Cricket Streaming: Riding high on winning momentum after registering five consecutive victories – eight in nine matches going back to the last English summer, a confident looking England team would look to overturn the disappointments of their last two Caribbean campaigns when they will take on West Indies. Both the nations will renew the test rivalry when they go up against each other in the first Test of the three-match test series starting on January 23 at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. Both nations have gone head to head in 154 test fixtures, with the men from the Caribbean leading the scoreline at 55-48, with all other 51 fixtures ending in a draw. In case of matches played in West Indies, the scoreline favours the home team with 25-14. The last time these two teams faced off in a Test series, the English hosted the Windies in August 2017, and it were the men from England that won the series by a margin of 2-1. England have only won one Test series in the West Indies in the past 50 years. On the other hand, West Indies will face a daunting task to halt a run of four consecutive defeats, all within three days, on a disastrous Asian tour late last year which saw them being brushed aside by both India and Bangladesh in two-Test series.
