Betting Tips
  • Keeper-batsman Jos Buttler is expected to open the batting for England and is our tip for their highest run scorer against West Indies. With the ball, Adil Rashid should enjoy the conditions in the UAE and has 65 IT20 wickets in his career. The leg-spinner is our prediction for England’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Chris Gayle is timeless at the top of West Indies’ order and few would bet against him emerging as their highest run scorer in this game. Hayden Walsh had an excellent home summer with the ball and the spinner is well worth backing as West Indies’ top wicket taker against England.
  • Playing a crucial role as wicket-keeper as well as opener, we expect Jos Buttler to be heavily involved in this match and to take the Player of The Match Award.

England vs West Indies Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2021

England and West Indies meet in a repeat of the 2016 T20 World Cup Final on Saturday evening at the Dubai Cricket Stadium, Dubai. West Indies came out on top in that famous final five years ago but England have since become the most feared white ball side in the world and won the 2019 ODI World Cup. Read on as we preview this match. The Group 1 game begins at 18:00 local time.

England may still be having nightmares about the final over of the 2016 T20 World Cup Final but are a far more experienced outfit five years down the road. They play an attacking brand of cricket with the bat from ball 1.

West Indies have the best record of any country since the T20 World Cup first took place in 2007. With a strong franchise tournament at home, their players have played in plenty of high quality games over the years.

ENG vs WI Match Toss Prediction

We predict that both captains will choose to field first in this match. It is very rare for England captain Eoin Morgan to bat first in any white ball format.

ENG vs WI Match Pitch Report

The Dubai Cricket Stadium delivered many good contests between bat and ball during the IPL. We expect a par score on this pitch to be 150-160.

Weather Report

The temperature will not drop below 30 degrees during this evening game in Dubai.

ENG vs WI Prediction

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Although England come into this game and the competition without key players in Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, it has long been known that they were unavailable so it will not have affected their preparation. Captain Eoin Morgan is in poor form with the bat and his place in the side is under the microscope.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler - The opening keeper-batsman missed out on the second half of the IPL in the UAE but should come into this tournament refreshed and ready to score big runs.
  • Liam Livingstone - The middle order batter has had a breakthrough year for England and starred in the Men’s Hundred during the summer.
  • Adil Rashid - England’s number one spinner has an excellent googly which many top batters fail to pick. He is a regular taker of wickets in this format.

ENG Team Form

England were ruthless against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in home conditions in this format during the summer. However, against superior opposition in the UAE will be a different proposition.

England Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler (wk), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

The T20 World Cup holders made a late squad change on Wednesday with left-arm orthodox bowler Akeal Hosein replacing all-rounder Fabian Allen in the squad for T20 World Cup 2021. Due to the conditions of the pitches in the UAE, we expect Hosein to come straight into the side for this game.

WI Key Players

  • Evin Lewis - The left-handed opener has 2 IT20 centuries to his name and a strike-rate of 158.03 in this format.
  • Chris Gayle - The imposing top order batter also has 2 IT20 centuries under his belt. Don’t expect many quick singles but do expect plenty of boundaries from Gayle.
  • Hayden Walsh - The leg-break bowler had a pretty modest IT20 record until Sri Lanka and Australia came to the Caribbean this year. He has grown as a player over the second half of 2021.

WI Team Form

West Indies were thwarted by the weather in their final IT20 series warm-up series against Pakistan. However, they have posted some excellent results in this format this year.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Roston Chase, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard (c), Hayden Walsh, Dwayne Bravo, Obed McCoy, Akeal Hosein

ENG vs WI Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Jos Buttler (10), Jonny Bairstow (9.5) and Nicholas Pooran (8.5) will be our wicket-keepers. Buttler and Bairstow are two of the most feared white ball batters in the world.

  • Bowlers

    Adil Rashid (9), Mark Wood (8.5) and Hayden Walsh (8.5) are our bowlers. We expect Rashid and Walsh to both extract some spin from the surface.
