Steve James, in the Daily Telegraph, predicts a tough time for West Indies and plenty to look forward to for the England batsmen.

This England team like playing West Indies as much as the modern-day child does a Nintendo DS. It is said that the strength of this West Indies team lies in its bowling, and its attack does have some pace, but just check the England team’s batting averages against this lot compared to their career averages. There will be little quaking in boots.

In the Guardian, Vic Marks agrees the Test series should be comfortably won by England.

In the Daily Mail, James Anderson speaks to Peter Hayter about his formative years as a professional cricketer and the challenges ahead.
