Spirited West Indies Are on the Brink of Beating World No. 1, but England Knows How to Bounce Back
West Indies and England are separated by nine places in the ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings. That, however, has been inconsequential in the ongoing five-match T20I series, as the Caribbean boys are on the verge of beating the number one ranked T20I team in the world, England.
Kieron Pollard’s team had a dream start to their campaign as they won the first game comprehensively by a margin of 9 wickets. The second game saw England living up to their potential, and though Akeal Hosein almost secured an improbable victory for the Windies, Eoin Morgan’s men held on to their nerves to secure a one-run triumph.
However, all of England’s good work was undone in the third T20I, where they were handed a 20-run defeat by the hosts. West Indies put up a mammoth total of 224 runs on the board whilst batting first, and though Tom Banton and Phil Salt’s fighting knocks kept England in the hunt, England could ultimately muster up nothing more than 204 runs.

West Indies are likely to field an unchanged playing XI for this game, given that they won the third T20I. However, if they are bold enough to carry out experiments, they can play a punt with the talented Kyle Mayers. The all-rounder could come in place of Shai Hope, who has struggled to get going in this series and has scored only 26 runs in three innings, at an average of less than 10. In such a scenario, Nicholas Pooran will have to keep wickets for the Caribbean boys.
England, on the other hand, are expected to make plenty of changes to their team for this do-or-die clash. Versatile batter Sam Billings might get the nod ahead of an out of form James Vince. Besides that, Chris Silverwood’s coaching team can also opt for a couple of changes in the bowling contingent – replacing George Garton and Tymal Mills with Chris Jordan and Liam Dawson respectively.
Jason Holder: The English batters have had no answers to Jason Holder’s pace and bounce in this series, as the 30-year-old is currently topping the leading wicket-takers charts. He has scalped 7 wickets in three matches at an incredible average of 10.42 and has the best bowling figures of 4/7, which came in the first T20I.
Adil Rashid: Adil Rashid has been England’s trump card with the ball as Kieron Pollard & Co. has not been able to attack the leg-spinner. The Yorkshire lad has scalped 4 wickets, but what is more impressive is his economy rate of 5.83 runs per overs. Rashid has conceded less than 30 runs in all of the three T20Is so far.
