ENG vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win

St Lucia, March 06 at 01:30 AM IST

The Windies have looked completely dominating on one of the best sides going around in the current cricketing scenario. They tamed the visiting Englishmen 2-1 in the three-match Test series, then went on to make it even stevens in the 5 ODIs by 2-2 and now its time for the final frontier that is the shortest format of the game the T20Is to roll down curtains to the England tour of Windies.

Windies are a completely different unit in T20Is

The two time World T20 winners the Windies are one of the most devastating sides going around in the shortest format. They have got all their boxes ticked when it comes to the T20Is, be it bowlers, all-rounders or batsmen.

With Chris Gayle at the top of the order followed by the likes of Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran following up, this batting line-up can cause carnage on any given day. In the all-round department, the impetus would be on skipper Jason Holder who will look to carry forward his amazing run in this series and make an impact in this format as well.

England needs to recoupe

This should be stated that England haven’t looked at their best in this tour. They were wayward in the Test series and then holding the prestigious number one rank in ODI’s, they were not able to win the series and had to satisfy themselves with a 2-2 draw.

England needs to recoupe here for sure to give themselves some sort of momentum heading into the World Cup.
