England will look to secure a run of wins in the West Indies for the first time since 2004 when the two sides meet in their third and final Test this week.
England have played two draws against the Windies so far this month and made a final Test decision in Grenada.
Joe Root’s men failed to secure an unlikely win in the second Test on the final day when West India skipper Kraigg Brathwaite guided his side to another draw.
England have done well so far this month in the Caribbean, but a lack of killer instincts and some slightly shy captains have dulled their quest for victory.
Root will be excited to pull it all together at the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s and claim a rare series win.

West Indies vs. England: what was said?
England captain Root accepted he could have risked a bolder declaration after a second straight Test against the West Indies.
“It’s frustrating not to have won but the way we played was a brilliant performance on a very calm surface,” Root said.
“It’s not a win, but it feels like another step forward. We could have been a little bolder with the explanation, but it feels like a faster goal here.
“I thought they might try a little bit of chasing, but that wasn’t the case. Perhaps we could have pulled out 10 overs sooner but defending 240 in 70 overs could be a big challenge for either side in this wicket.
“We weren’t trying to get a miracle win in 30 overs to make sure we had 340 on the board but I think the more confident you get the bolder you get with those decisions.
“The most important thing is to keep finding ways to give us a chance to win Tests because we find positions where we are at the top and dominate the game.”
