ENG vs WI Playing 11 for First Test; CWI includes Mikyle Louis

Cricket West Indies have included debutant Mikyle Louis in their playing 11 for the first test of the West Indies tour of England 2024. The match was scheduled to be played between July 10 and 14 in Lord’s, London.

A total of three tests will be played during the tour which will be a part of ICC Men’s Test Championship 2025. England maintains a poor record in the Lord’s as they managed to win only two of the last seven Tests at Lord’s.

Fast bowler Gus Atkinson and wicketkeeper Jamie Smith have been included in England’s playing 11 along with Chris Woakes who returns from his personal break after the passing away of his father.

Offspinner Shoaib Bashir is set to play his first Test on home soil after impressing on the away tour of India.

Speaking of the West Indies playing 11, opening batter Mikyle Louis is likely to partner Brathwaite at the top and make his debut, becoming the first player from St Kitts to play Test cricket for West Indies.
