It’s now over a year since team England visited the Caribbean. They played back then, three Tests, five One Day Internationals (ODIs), and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.

The West Indies won the first two Test matches, taking an unassailable lead in the series, thus having the bragging rights of keeping the Wisden Trophy.

It was also a momentous occasion for the Windies as it was their first Test series win against England since 2009.

The ODI series ended in a draw with a 2–2 result after the third match was washed out.

England, however, won the T20I series in a 3–nil clean sweep.

The Windies owed their sterling performance to a large extent during the series to their pace bowlers.

Windies quicks picked up 44 wickets out of a total of 60 wickets; in other words, the pacers snatched more than 70% of the total number of wickets.

The pace attack back then was led by Kemar Roach and an equally contributing Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel, and their captain Jason Holder.

Kemar Roach was adjudged man of the series in the Test series. He picked up 18 scalps, while Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel, and Jason Holder picked up 10, 9, and 7, respectively.
