Even after the appalling loss against Pakistan, England looked back at their best versus Bangladesh. They checked all boxes with their batsmen, adamant to not drop a wicket with their opener Jason Roy scoring 153 and the team ending the innings at a total of 386/6. Their bowlers also kept Bangladesh on the edge, restricting them to a mere 280 all-out in 49 overs.
Looking at Windies, their bowlers look adjusted to the English conditions, crediting their performance versus Australia but the deficiency in their batting front has been their main issue, especially in their last game versus Australia.
Currently, England sits at 3 spot in the leaderboard while Windies is 3 places down at number 6. If Windies win the match versus England, they’ll jump straight to the third position.
