England - West Indies Predictions & Betting tips - ICC Men's T20 World Cup

 by Devesh Jaganath |

The pick of first-round Super Eight matches will see defending champions England taking on co-hosts West Indies on Thursday!

After storming to the T20 World Cup title in 2022, England have been far less convincing in this tournament but are still third-favourite to win the tournament.

West Indies, on the other hand, failed to make it out of the group stage in the last edition, but are one of only three teams that played and won all four group-stage matches this year.

England - West Indies Squad Analysis

Both teams came through the group stages of the 2024 T20 World Cup with no fresh injury concerns. 

We are yet to see the explosive Phil Salt hit top gear in the competition. Salt was a key member of the IPL-winning Kolkata Knight Riders and scored 435 runs in 12 innings in the competition. 

Jofra Archer has exceeded expectations since his return to the national team setup. The England speedster will have a crucial role to play if the Three Lions are to make it to the knockouts. 

The West Indies have had several standout performers so far in this competition. 

Nicolas Pooran finished eighth in the leading run-scorer standings for the Lucknow Super Giants at the IPL. He is now the second-highest run-scorer in this competition with 164 runs in four innings, at a strike-rate of 150.46.

As for the bowlers - Alzarri Joseph is the third-highest wicket-taker in this competition with eight in three matches. Akeal Hosein is also in the top five, currently on seven wickets in three overs. 

England - West Indies Form Analysis

England’s Super Eight hopes were in serious jeopardy early on in the tournament. Their first match against Scotland was washed out and their second ended in a 36-run defeat to Australia. 

Game three proved to be the most important as they claimed a massive eight-wicket victory over Oman. That boosted their net run rate from below -1.000 to above +3.000.

After a rain delay, England managed to beat Namibia in the final group-stage match by 41 runs (DLS) method, edging out Scotland due to their superior NRR.

While England are the defending champions, it is the West Indies that have dominated the head-to-head results. In 29 previous encounters, the Windies have won 17, while England have won 12. 

Additionally, the side from the Caribbean have won five of the six matches between the sides in T20 World Cups. 

The West Indies have a flawless record in this tournament, as they emerged as the winners of Group C. They beat PNG by five wickets, Uganda by 134 runs, New Zealand by 13 runs and Afghanistan by 104 runs. 

Following years of underperformance, Rovman Powell and co are on an upward trajectory, currently on a nine-match winning streak. That run of results dates back to February and includes a 3-0 series sweep of South Africa in May.
