England vs West Indies Prediction

ENG vs WI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

The second game in Group 2 of the Super Eights sees England take on West Indies at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia. England finished in second place in Group B with West Indies topping Group C during the first stage of the tournament. Read on as we preview this match. The match begins at 20:30 local time on Wednesday 19th June.

England managed to save their defence of the T20 World Cup by winning their last two group games against Oman and Namibia. Prior to that, a no-result against Scotland and a defeat against Australia saw them in real trouble. This will be a much tougher fixture than their last games.

West Indies made short work of their matches against PNG and Uganda before a tough clash with New Zealand but then thrashed Afghanistan in Match 40. They will certainly back themselves with both bat and ball against the reigning champions in this game.

ENG vs WI Match Toss Prediction

With four of the last five matches at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium won by the team batting first, we expect both captains will choose to bat first in this clash.

ENG vs WI Pitch Report

West Indies hit 218/5 in the last game at this venue so we can expect another good batting wicket. There will be some turn but overall it will be a good paced pitch and a par score is likely to be over 190.

St Lucia Weather Report

According to the forecast, it will be cloudy throughout this clash with the temperature at 28 degrees. Humidity levels will be over 70% from start to finish with only a small chance of rain.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

This will be a real test for England who have struggled in their one game against a Test playing nation so far in this T20 World Cup. Liam Livingstone appeared to strain a muscle when batting against Namibia and we expect Will Jacks to come into the side in his place.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler- the England skipper will be looking to bounce back after recording a duck in the win over Namibia and he will be looking to lead from the top of the order.
  • Phil Salt- the opener will be looking forward to playing against West Indies once again after making scores of 40, 109 not out and 119 during the series in December.
  • Jofra Archer- the quick bowler has been back to his best in this tournament and he got the key wicket of David Wiese in the win over Namibia.
  • Adil Rashid- the leg-spinner continues to give the ball plenty of flight and is not afraid to slow the ball down to encourage attacking batters to take him on.

ENG Team Form

England won by seven wickets and by 23 runs in their two completed T20Is against Pakistan last month.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

There were two changes for West Indies in their last match with Shai Hope and Obed McCoy coming in for Romario Shepherd and Roston Chase. Shepherd missed the game due to the birth of his child but should be available again for this game.

WI Key Players

  • Nicholas Pooran – The left-hander was run out with two balls of the team innings left against Afghanistan after hitting six fours and eight sixes in the last game.
  • Rovman Powell – The captain always comes to the crease with an attacking mind-set and this was there to see in his 26 runs from 15 balls.
  • Obed McCoy – The left-arm pace bowler can be expensive but is also a real strike-bowler. He took two wickets in three balls on his way to figures of 3/14 in the last match.
  • Akeal Hosein – The left-arm spinner bowled a wicket-maiden to open the innings in Match 40 and then returned to dismiss the dangerous Azmatullah Omarzai.

WI Team Form

West Indies had an excellent first stage of the tournament winning their matches by 5 wickets, 134 runs, 13 runs and 104 runs.

In spite of England not having as strong a first round as West Indies, it is the 2022 T20 World Cup Champions who are favourites at 1.75. However, West Indies are not far behind on 2.00.

Who will win the England vs West Indies Match?

Most pundits are expecting a close contest as there is not a great deal to choose between England and West Indies. Home advantage will be useful but overall we have England, as the holders, as the top side.
