T20 World Cup Super 8s tips and suggested bets: England vs West Indies

The second day of the T20 World Cup Super 8s sees action in St Lucia as England face hosts West Indies on Wednesday night (Thursday 0130 BST).

England have been steadily improving through the tournament and come into the Super 8s off the back of back-to-back wins after a rocky start to the group stage.

In their path are the unbeaten West Indies, who have been imperious through the group phase, dominating opponents.

England are unbeaten in three T20Is at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium although they face the hosts who have just walloped Afghanistan at the same ground so that record will be put to the test.

There have been two totals of greater than 200 at the St Lucia ground and both those scores have been notched during this T20 World Cup.

It is one of the more batter-friendly surfaces we have seen in the tournament making the prospect of a high-scoring thriller a genuine one. With scores of 160 plus at this ground, the results favour the side batting first.

The Kensington Oval in Bridgetown has also shown itself to be a good batting track with that fact likely to favour India over Afghanistan.

The highest successful chase at Kensington Oval was the 172 that the West Indies hunted down in a T20I in Barbados last December. This ground also favours the team batting first if they can score 180 plus.

 

 

 

West Indies vs England: Suggested bets

The West Indies powered to victory over Afghanistan off the back of some crisp hitting from Nicholas Pooran. Returning to the scene of those heroics he could look to launch again.

Adil Rashid should be England's great weapon against Pooran and company but he will need to execute better than Rashid Khan did against the men in maroon.

Harry Brook came into some form in the final group stage game albeit in a rain-hit encounter. The middle orders have had a lot to do at this World Cup and that might repeat here.

The West Indies rely heavily on boundary hitting and look like they will be a solid bet to take hold of the most fours in the match market.

The Windies have a strong opening pair and will want to weather the early storm. They might just have a big stand in them and could best an inconsistent England.

 

Predictions

Nicholas Pooran to top score for West Indies

Adil Rashid to be leading wicket taker for England

West Indies to hit more fours

West Indies to have the larger opening partnership
