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

Match 46 of the 2024 T20 World Cup takes place in Bridgetown on Friday evening when USA take on West Indies in Group 2 of the Super Eights. USA lost their opening match of this stage to South Africa by 18 runs with West Indiees also suffering a defeat, by eight wickets against England. Read on as we preview this game which gets underway at the Kensington Oval at 20:30 local time on 21st June.

Although they lost by 18 runs to South Africa in their last match, USA showed plenty of character to keep themselves in the contest and were still genuine contenders with two overs to go. They will fancy their chances against West Indies in this clash.

West Indies cruised through the first round group stage but came unstuck against the 2022 T20 World Cup winners England in their last game. They will be heavy favourites to win this match but will know that they can not afford to take USA lightly.

USA vs WI Match Toss Prediction

Three of the last four T20Is at the Kensington Oval in this tournament have been won by the team batting first so our prediction is for both captains to bat first in this fixture.

USA vs WI Pitch Report

Eighteen wickets fell in Thursday’s game at the Kensington Oval and we expect a bit more pace in the pitch during this evening contest on Friday. Whoever bats first will be looking to target 200 as a par score and spin may be a good option to limit run rates.

Barbados Weather Report

It will be a warm, cloudy and humid evening in Barbados on Friday with a slight chance of rain throughout. The temperature will be in the high twenties from start to finish.

USA Team News & Playing 11

USA Team News

Captain Monank Patel has missed USA’s last three games due to a shoulder injury with Aaron Jones leading the side and there has been no indication that Monank will return for this match. However, the rest of the squad are all fully fit ahead of this game.

USA Key Players

  • Andries Gous – The keeper-batter was in fine form against South Africa as he smashed five fours and five sixes as he posted his highest T20I score.
  • Aaron Jones – The stand-in skipper has struggled to make runs after taking on the captaincy but he grew up in Barbados and will see this match as his home-coming.
  • Saurabh Netravalkar – The opening bowler has combined accuracy and well disguised slower-balls in this tournament and we expect him to be a huge threat for USA again in this fixture.
  • Harmeet Singh – The experienced left-arm spin bowling all-rounder will be full of confidence after hitting 38 runs and taking 2/24 in the last game.

USA Team Form

USA have not won any of their last four games outright although they did beat Pakistan in a Super Over.

USA Predicted Playing 11

Steven Taylor, Andries Gous (wk), Nitish Kumar, Aaron Jones (c), Corey Anderson, Shayan Jahangir, Harmeet Singh, Jasdeep Singh, Nosthush Kenjige, Ali Khan, Saurabh Netravalkar

WI Team News

After resting Romario Shepherd and Roston Chase for their final first round games, both players came back into the side for the defeat against England. Opener Brandon King suffered a side strain in the last match and is not expected to play again in this tournament.

WI Key Players

  • Nicholas Pooran – The former captain looked set for another big innings in the last game and will be keen to kick on if he gets to 30 in this clash.
  • Rovman Powell – The skipper produced the most fluent innings of the batting line-up against England as he struck five sixes in his 36 runs from 17 balls.
  • Andre Russell – The experienced all-rounder is yet to go wicketless in the tournament and will not give the USA batters too many balls to hit to the boundary.
  • Akeal Hosein – The slow bowler was far more economical than some of his team-mates in the last fixture and needs only two dismissals to bring up 50 T20I wickets.

WI Team Form

After winning their four games in the first round, West Indies were well beaten with 15 balls remaining against England.
