We are just a day away from the Super 12 matches to commence and our excitement levels could only multiply now that we have an action-packed weekend coming our way.
England takes on West Indies in what is the second match of the Super 12 and this could be a replay of the last T20 World Cup final. However, both Ben Stokes and Carlos Braithwaite are unlikely to be seen on the field due to respective concerns.

Probable Playing XI
England (ENG): Jos Buttler (WK), Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Eoin Morgan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan.
West Indies (WI): Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmeyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, DJ Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Obed McCoy, Hayden Walsh
Jos Buttler, Andre Russell, and Moeen Ali are must picks as their explosive batting would be vital for their teams.
Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy are must pick too considering that they will have the responsibility to start England's batting well.
ENG VS WI Fantasy Team
Captain and Vice-captain Picks
Both teams are fierce but as things stand, England seems to have a more balanced squad. The player looks in better form, while the West Indies players seem to not have picked up the momentum yet.
Some players performed in the IPL but there are still question marks over many players' forms. Maybe, after this match, things may change.
Cricwizz predicts England to win the Super 12 match against the West Indies.
