HEADLINE: Three-day game to help make decisions on WINDIES batting order 2020-06-23 05:06:17 

The absences of Shimron Hetmyer and Darren Bravo on the West Indies tour of England are still causing a few headaches for the structure of the team, with head coach Phil Simmons yet to decide on what is the best line-up ahead of the first game which begins July 8.
