Day-night Tests: Australia three from three after two nervy finishes

Given the match that starts in Birmingham on Thursday is the first day-night Test in the United Kingdom, with the pink ball expected to hoop around corners against vulnerable opposition, Broad is likely to overtake Botham before the weekend is out.

Much of the pre-match build-up has focused on how Joe Root's men will cope with their first tasted of pink ball worldwide cricket.

The West Indies have lost their last six Test series and their away record, excluding matches against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, is especially desperate with just three wins in 86 matches since 1997.

The recent rapprochement between Cricket West Indies and a number of senior players did not come in time for them to be considered for the England tour and Garner was unsure how many would be interested in returning to Test cricket.

"We know that every ball in the Test matches will be hugely competitive and we need to be switched on to that", Broad added.

The historic encounter begins on Thursday when Joe Root's side take on the West Indies at Edgbaston.

Jason Holder, the captain for that series, is still the West Indies skipper and Law is confident the all-rounder remains the right man for the job.

"They'll want, by the end of this series, to have a settled team", Atherton said. Toby Roland-Jones replaced him during the Investec Test series victory over South Africa, and promptly marked his debut at The Oval last month with an eight-wicket haul.

US President Donald Trump's warning to North Korea has given gold momentum; investors are also awaiting US inflation data. Earlier in the week, Trump said the US would unleash " fire and fury " on North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S.

Law knows English cricket well from his successful playing stints with county sides Essex and Lancashire.

Meanwhile Tom Westley and Dawid Malan have yet to nail down their places at numbers three and five respectively. But the squad has been strengthened by the comeback of Kemar Roach, the most experienced member of an attack not short of pace.

"With a couple of new guys to the fore in Test cricket, that's an opportunity for our bowlers", he added.

"We're looking forward - let's rewrite that history".

"In the West Indies' warm-up match at Derby, it looked like they had a great week with the pink ball". Shaun Marsh (49) and brother Mitchell (28) took Australia close but when they and Nevill departed, there were a few nervy moments before Peter Siddle called a limping Starc, who had picked up a foot injury, through for the match-winning single. Games between England and the West Indies are competitive.

But Broad, whose father Chris was a member of the England side "blackwashed" by a brilliant West Indies team in 1984, was taking nothing for granted.

Stuart Broad and England step into the unknown this week in the first day-night Test match to be held in this country.

With Gibson expected to have left the European Central Bank ahead of the limited-overs matches against West Indies - there are five ODIs and a T20I scheduled before the end of September - England may need to appoint an interim bowling coach.
