Having lost a thrilling first Test, the home side now need a win to keep the series alive. Read on to find out how to get an England v West Indies live stream and watch the second Test online from anywhere.

With England having lost the first Test by four wickets in Southampton, the hosts are likely to make changes across the board for Old Trafford.

One guaranteed return to the England line up will be Joe Root who is set to return as skipper having missed out on the first Test due to the birth of his daughter. The experienced Stuart Broad also looks a good bet for a return to the team following his controversial exclusion from the first Test line-up.

Despite the quick turn-around between Tests, it's unlikely the Windies will be rotating a winning team, following such a sparkling display by Jason Holder's side in the first game.

Holder led by example at the Rose Bowl, tearing through England's batting order with a six-wicket haul, and is now ranked as the second-best bowler in the world, in the latest International Cricket Council Test match bowling rankings. Alongside Jermaine Blackwood's calm and classy turn at the crease, it made for a performance that drew comparisons to the Windies golden era of the 70's and 80s and bodes well for the visitors as they look to remain holders of the Wisden Trophy.
