Bet Now

England and West indies faced off in the first t20I match and West Indies came out victories comfortably by 7 wickets. Both teams are missing out a lot of big names and are looking to build their squad strength ahead of the T20I World Cup this year. England have been a dominant side in the T20I cricket but will be disappointed with their loss in the opening match. They will look to bounce back with a victory to level the series here. West Indies after their crushing deft against Ireland will be pleased with their performance in the opening match and will look to repeat it.

West Indies Preview

West Indies cruised along to victory easily with 9 wickets in hand. Brandon King scored 52 runs off 49 balls and lead them to victory with two 52-run partnerships with Nicholas Pooran (27* runs) and Shai Hope (20 runs) respectively. They have a long batting line-up with a number of all-rounders in the middle order.

Sheldon Cotrell (2 wickets) and Jason Holder (4 wickets) lead their pace attack with 3 wickets in the first 2 overs which put England on the back foot early. Akeal Hossain, Romario Shepherd, and Fabian Allen chipped in with a wicket each as they bowled out the opposition for 103 runs.

Key players to bet on:

Nicholas Pooran – Pooran curbed his natural attacking instincts and scored 27runs to stay unbeaten to take his team home on a tough surface. We expect him to continue his form in the batting department and help his team win this match too.

Jason Holder – Holder demolished the England team with figures of 3.4-1-7-4 and was almost unplayable in the power play overs. He bowled 15 dot balls in the power play and gave the momentum to his team early on.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Brandon King, Shai Hope, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hossain, Sheldon Cotrell, Odean Smith

England Preview

England top order kept losing wickets in bunches and they were struggling at 29/5 in 7th over and 49/7in the 12th over before the duo of Adil Rashid (22 runs) and Chris Jordan (28 runs) brought some respectability to end with 103 runs. They might look to bring in Liam Livingstone to strengthen their batting line-up in this match.

Their bowling unit was given an impossible task of defending 104 runs in their 20 overs. Spinners Adil Rashid and Liam Dawson bowled superbly with good control and accuracy to end with bowling figures of 4-0-21-1 & 4-0-12-0 respectively in the match. Saqib Mahmood, Chris Jordan, and Tymal Mills will continue their role as the pace attack in this match too.

Key players to bet on: 

Adil Rashid – Rashid was excellent with the ball with figures of 1/21 in his 4 overs and also made a vital 22 runs contribution with the abt. We expect him to be their trump card in the middle overs on this pitch.

Moeen Ali – Moeen Ali had a forgetful match with a golden duck in the last match and he is one of good batters in the negalnd set up on tough pitches. We expect him to come good in this match and score big runs for the team.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Banton, Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone/James Vince, Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Eoin Morgan, Liam Dawson, Tymal Mills, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood, Adil Rashid

Weather Conditions

Barbados will have bright and sunny weather conditions with just 10% chances of precipitation as per weather forecast. We expect rain to stay away from this game.

Venue Details

Kensington Oval is a tricky surface with uneven bounce and slowness on the surface. Batters usually need to apply themselves before going for the big shots and the highest target chased here is just 155 runs. We expect average scores to be in the range of 140-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is expected to aid the bowlers early due to the early moisture content and both teams will look to take advantage of it. And pitch might slow down as the match progresses bringing spinners into the equation.

England were greeted with the rude awakening of the slow conditions and their batters tried to up the scoring rate very early. They might settle down for par score of 150-160 runs and bat more sensibly in this match. West Indies bowlers set up the win in this match and their batters did the job without any hiccups. But, we expect England to win this match owing to their consistency and success in the T20Is over the past 2-3 years.

ENGLAND will win the match & level 1-1
