Cricket Match Preview:

T20 remains the only cricket format where West Indies remain a strong force. While they are beginning to find their feet again in Test and ODI cricket format, they have been consistently good in cricket’s shortest format. They have become the WT20 champions twice now and the last title win came against England at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

It will not be a hyperbole to say that West Indies have surprised England on this tour. First of all, they defeated England in a test series, which was a great feat. Then in ODI cricket format, currently England’s best format, West Indies pushed them as far as they could being a number 9 side in the world. Now there lies a real chance for West Indies to show who is the boss of world cricket’s shortest format.

In the last 5 T20 cricket games between the two sides, West Indies have won all but 1 cricket games. One of those wins came in the WT20 final of 2016 when Carlos Brathwaite famously hit England all-rounder Ben Stokes for consecutive sixes to win the title. With the WT20 still almost a year away, there is not much context to these cricket games but if you are West Indies, every cricket game and every win count.

If the ODI cricket series is anything to go by, West Indies have troubled England in almost every cricket game. Even in their run chase of 418 runs, they came within 29 runs of the famous win. In the last cricket game, they bowled England out in 28 overs flat for 113 runs. All these performances mean that West Indies will now be in the right frame of mind come the 50 over World Cup. From England’s point of view, the T20 has not been their strongest format and it gives them the chance to perform without any real pressure.

Cricket Match Information:

WT20 champions West Indies will take on England in a 3-match T20 cricket series. The first T20 will be played at Darren Sammy stadium. Unlike other formats of the game of cricket, West Indies will begin this cricket series as firm favourites. This is the last leg of this England tour of West Indies. They have already played 3-match Test series and 5-match ODI cricket series.

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies have played admirably on this entire cricket tour of England of West Indies. They will now look to affirm their status as world number 1 T20 side in a 3-match series. Our prediction is of a similar side that played their final ODI against England.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:

  • JD Campbell
  • Chris Gayle
  • Shai Hope
  • Shimron Hetmyer
  • Darren Bravo
  • Sheldon Cottrell
  • Ashley Nurse
  • Oshane Thomas
  • Devendra Bishoo
  • Carlos Brathwaite
  • Jason Holder


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

While England have one of the best, if not the best ODI cricket team, they are certainly not the best T20 side in the world. Our prediction is they will play the same playing eleven that played in the last ODI.

Here is our prediction of England’s playing XI:

  • Jason Roy
  • Johnny Bairstow
  • Joe Root
  • Eoin Morgan
  • Ben Stokes
  • Jos Butler
  • Moeen Ali
  • Chris Woakes
  • Liam Plunkett
  • Mark Wood
  • Adeel Rashid

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Chris Gayle has had a great record in recent times in ODI cricket format. He has come back hungrier and stronger. If he is included into the playing eleven in a cricket series expected to be dominated by batsmen, our prediction is of a typical big-hitting knock from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international T20 cricket game played here was between West Indies and Australia back in 2012. Australia chased down the total set by West Indies in that cricket game. Our prediction is of a score of around 180 runs in this cricket game. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

West Indies will begin the game of cricket as favourites again. They are the number 1 cricket side of the format and are expected to be very tough to beat. Our prediction is of West Indies’ win in the next ODI cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Shimron Hetmyer (WI) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mark Wood (ENG) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Shimron Hetmyer (WI)
