So today, with two World Cricket World Cup matches and a world ranked number 1, England jump into the fray and immediately play against the two-time and current West Indies team that won in 2016.
However, five years have passed since then, and the West Indies team has slowed down a bit and now does not look as strong as in the home championship. England also became world champion in 2010, and now they are the reigning ODI world champions, where they managed to beat India in the final at home in 2019.
Both teams did not really prepare for the championship and had two warm-ups here in Dubai. England played a quality game against India and scored 188 points, and it seemed that India was doomed, but the number 1 favorite in this championship managed to score 192. England also played with New Zealand and won confidently. England’s main striking force is hydrologist David Malan and Jason Roy.
Team West Indies, in turn, also played two games and lost both. If the defeat from Pakistan looks logical, while Pakistan had 15 overs to win, then the defeat from Afghanistan is alarming that the team is not so good at the start of the championship. Of course, the main stars are Evin Lewis and Chris Gale, who are the main striking force that, in good shape, can sweep away any team without exception, but so far the Hulk is smoldering with fire))))
The last long streak between the teams was in 2019, then the teams played 10 matches against each other and England won the streak 6-4, but if you look at Twenty 20, it is 5-2 in favor of Her Majesty the Queen. I think the West Indies are not yet in shape, so England is rightfully the favorite of this meeting. Was the post informative and helpful? Do you want to keep abreast of all football news?
