WI vs ENG Dream11 Prediction: West Indies is all set to host England for a long tour comprising of 5 T20I matches, three-match Test series and the first T20I game is scheduled to take place on 23 January, 2022 (Sunday) at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. Both these teams are coming into this match after facing quite different results in their previous T20I cricket assignments. Hosts West Indies are currently not in the best of forms as they suffering a disappointing 1-2 ODI series loss against Ireland at home even after winning the first game and two-time winners also had a horrid run in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. On the other hand, England ended as the semi-finalist in the Men’s T20 World Cup played in the UAE and have done well in the shortest format of the game lately. It will now be really important for both these teams to be at the top of their game right from the start of this five-match T20I series.

But the batters of both the teams will enjoy batting on this wicket and thus, picking more of batters and bowlers will be a great option from the fantasy cricket point of view.
