England and the touring West Indies side face a step into the unknown when they face each other in the first Day-Night Test Match to be played in the country with a Pink Dukes ball under Lights at Edgbaston.

At a press conference in London, England seamer Stuart Broad admitted that players on both sides will have to learn as they go, never having used the Pink Ball in English conditions.

England go into the series as favourites after their recent 3-1 victory over South Africa but West Indies team manager Joel Garner said he expected the Matches to be close than many people think.

He said that games between England and the West Indies are always competitive so he wouldn’t completely right them off.

The series will be the second as Captain for Joe Root, who will be keen to build on his winning start in the job.
