WI  vs ENG 2nd ODI: Following their thumping win in the first ODI of the three-match series against England, West Indies sit on the brink of a rare ODI series win against the Three Lions. They stunned the 2019 ODI World champions when Shai Hope’s century and Romario Shepherd’s blistering knock powered the Windies to a four-wicket win. The 326-run chase was West Indies’ second-highest chase in the ODI history.

England would be fighting to stay in the hunt after some of their bowlers, particularly Sam Curran endured a horrific outing in the first ODI. The second match of the series will be played at the same venue where the first one was held – Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. Here is all you need to know about the venue.
