West Indies coaching regime, headed by Stuart Law and Nic Pothas, were keen to use a Kookaburra
in this series on the basis that England have a history of struggling to gain much movement with it.
They were also keen to play on slower, lower surfaces, such as in Guyana
in the hope of negating England's seamers and exploiting a perceived weakness in their batting.

But Johnny Grave, the CWI chief executive, decided on a different approach.
He reasoned that the newly adapted Dukes ball, specially designed for use in the Caribbean
after consultation between the manufacturer and CWI officials
would provide faster-moving, more entertaining cricket and avoid some of the attritional encounters
seen between these sides in recent years.
