England vs West Indies Prediction
This could be a tight contest as both the teams bat deep, have plenty of match-winners in their ranks and possess a threatening pace attack. England do have the home advantage in their favor in addition to their impressive record at this ground in the 50-over format. The hosts have won each of their last four ODIs here and have beaten the West Indies here twice in two games. Sheldon Cottrell, Jason Holder and Oshane Thomas are bowling with good rhythm and the Windies will really fancy their chances if these three are able to replicate what they did against Pakistan. But since England are a much more consistent side and are simply too tough to beat at home, we expect the hosts to come out on top in this encounter.
Predicted Playing XI:
England: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
West Indies: Jason Holder (captain), Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle,Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas.
