Amazing beach and pool party at West Indies vs England Test in Barbados

Fans revelled in the scorching heat at Kensington Oval's party stand in Bridgetown where they were treated to a beach and pool party.

Supporters even sat in jet skis as Joe Root's side came out to bowl against Windies with the Wisden Trophy up for grabs.

While many opted to rest in deck chairs and sun loungers, or chill out in the pool by the bar.

In contrast, snow in Blighty caused a non-league football game to be postponed as Brits are forced to brave the chilly weather.

England lost the toss earlier today for the opening match of the First Test, with captain Jason Holder sending the visitors out to bat first.

Root commented on how he was fearful of Windies' bowlers, as he stated opener Keaton Jennings and Rory Burns may face difficulty with bouncers.

While the 28-year-old told his side to forget about the Ashes and upcoming World Cup, and focus entirely on beating the Windies.

To the surprise of many, England dropped fast bowler Stuart Broad from the attack, with Surrey star Sam Curran partnering seamer James Anderson, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali.

England – who drew with Windies in the 2014/15 series – haven't won away against their opponents in 15 years, their only success in the Caribbean since 1968.
