THE TEAM NEWS
- England will look to become world champions in two formats as they attempt to go one better than in 2016 when they fell agonisingly short in the final against the West Indies with this opening clash a good chance for them to go some way to atoning for that.
- England will still believe they should have won that day but they put it behind them to win the World Cup in 2019 and with the likes of Jos Buttler in top form, they can go close in this tournament, although the absence of all-rounder Ben Stokes is a big blow.
- Reigning champions West Indies will get the defence of their crown underway against the team that they defeated to earn the title in the last T20 World Cup but their recent form suggests that they could find it tough going here.
- Much has been made about the lack of form around some of their key men but that has not been the case of Evin Lewis who arrives in good touch and he will be integral to his side’s chances at the top of the order.
England and West Indies get their respective campaigns underway in a
repeat of the 2016 T20 World Cup final. The Windies claimed a thrilling
success in that contest but England have since gone on to win the World
Cup and their white ball credentials have been clear for all to see over
a long period. Both teams can prevail here but England have won three
successive matches in this format against the West Indies and having
also won six of their eight most recent T20i games, England appear to
have the edge here and are favoured to prevail.
