In the 19th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, the host England will take on the underdogs West Indies at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on 14th June. ENG vs WI match preview.
The hosts England will be back in action after a long wait of 5 days since their last encounter. They defeated Bangladesh by 106 runs in their previous meeting. England looks a solid team but, by no means, ENG will take the Caribbeans lightly. England has played 3 matches so far in World Cup 2019. With 2 wins and 1 loss, they are the 3rd place in 2019 Cricket World Cup Points Table.
Windies have performed better than the expectations so far. Their pace bowlers are in dangerous form in this tournament. They dismantled Pakistani batsman in the opening game, then Australia and South Africa in the previous game but unfortunately it was washed out because of the rain. England batsman should be careful while facing the bouncers.
Earlier this year, England toured West Indies where series was ended in a draw (2-2) and we witnessed some high scoring matches. Finally, let’s look at the probable playing 11 and best dream11 picks ahead of the ENG vs WI match.
Moeen Ali who did not feature in last game against Bangladesh may come into playing 11 in place of Chris Woakes.
Jos Buttler has also recovered from the hip injury and will feature against the Windies.
Andre Russell who was ruled out if the previous game because of the injury is expected to be fit and may replace Darren Bravo for the game against England. Even Lewis is also expected to be fit for this encounter.
