England and West Indies will play in the 14th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We will cover ENG vs WI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
England is currently the No.1 team in the T20I format and has won the World Cup once. There is a high expectation that England will win the title this year.
Jason Roy and Jos Buttler will open the innings for England and have been successful opening pairs in recent times. At No.3, Jonny Bairstow role will be to stabilize the innings. Eoin Morgan and Liam Livingstone will bat according to the team’s requirements in the middle-order.
The all-rounders Chris Woakes, and Chris Jordan, will play a crucial role in the lower middle-order with bat and later contribute to the ball. Tymal Mills, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood will be the main wicket-takers of the team.
England will face their opponents from the last World Cup Finals West Indies in their first match.
West Indies are the only team to win the T20I World Cup twice, but the times have changed now, and WI is ranked at the 9th position. But they are such an unpredictable side that it’s tough to predict their performance.
The opening pair will comprise Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis, who give an excellent right-left combination. At No.3, Chris Gayle will bat. Roston Chase, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran will play in middle-order. The power hitters Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell will play the role of finisher.
In the bowling department, Ravi Rampaul, Dwayne Bravo, and Obed McCoy are likely to handle the team’s pace attack. Either Akeal Hosein or Hayden Walsh, along with Roston Chase, will be the spinners of the group. However, they will have more bowling options in the form of Pollard and Russell.
West Indies are a strong side, but their performance has not been consistent in the recent matches.
