The fate will be decided in the second test match to be played on 16th July if West Indies continues the winning streak. Or else, the third match would clearly define if the visitors are to get a bonus of 1875 pounds as revealed by the reports.

Going by the Cricket West Indies (CWI) contracts, the Caribbean players don’t receive win bonuses. If they win the upcoming Manchester Test, then a total of 23,800 pounds would be split among the entire squad.
