England 15/8 for Caribbean success

ESPNcricinfo staff

England's new era, without Kevin Pietersen and Andy Flower, begins in the West Indies with a low-key ODI series. But the importance of the fixtures will be highlighted by Ashley Giles who will be keen for his CV to be boosted by a success and his side can be backed at 15/8 to triumph 2-1.

The World T20 squad is moonlighting as a 50-over 15 but England have plenty of ability in their ranks. Everyone is tuned towards winning a place for the summer and members of this squad will be eager to impress in a rare chance in the longer form of the game. This series matters a lot to England.

West Indies are also missing their main weapon with Chris Gayle sidelined by injury. Losing such a gun player is a major blow to a side that slipped up against Ireland in a recent T20.
