West Indies could face a weakened England team in the final Test of the away series as captain Andrew Strauss says players may be rested for the Edgbaston Test.
England’s nine-wicket win at Trent Bridge yesterday gave them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
England face the Windies again at Edgbaston starting next Thursday, before their three-Test rubber against South Africa begins on July 19.
Strauss says the schedules for the next 18 months are pretty hard, so it's going to be hard for bowlers to play in every match.
In chasing down 108 shortly after tea on the fourth day, England sealed a seventh straight series win on home soil.
However, they were held up once again by Marlon Samuels, who converted his overnight 26 into an unbeaten 76 as West Indies were bowled out for 165.
He has scored 310 runs in the series at an average of 103.
Strauss said the West Indies played some really good cricket but his team was able to show a little bit more consistency.
