England’s tour of West Indies is turning out to be exciting and thriller than anyone expected. Not only did the West Indies win the test series, but they also managed to hold England to a 2-2 result in the ODI’s. Now, the action shifts to the T20 format, arguably the one where the West Indies is the strongest. A lot of the West Indian stars have returned to the fold and this will only add to the chances of the home team. However, England is a pretty good T20 side and is currently ranked 5th as compared to the West Indies at 7th. Some new faces might join this England squad for this T20I series starting from 06th March life from Darren Sammy Cricket Stadium, St Lucia. This series is going to be full of fireworks and six hitting carnivals from both the teams. Now let’s have a look at West indies vs England 1st T20 Dream11 Team and Fantasy Cricket Tips and Dream11 Team
Match Details: England vs West Indies 1st T20
Date: 06th March 2019
Time: 01:30 am IST
Venue: Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia
Pitch Report: In the last ODI, England were bowled out for 113 runs, but that was due to poor batting display. The pitch will be contusive for batting in the T20 as in 40 overs pitch doesn’t change much.
West Indies: Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Devendra Bishoo, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder (c), John Campbell, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Oshane Thomas, Andre Russell, Nicholas Pooran, Fabian Allen
England: Eoin Morgan(c), Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, David Willey, Mark Wood
They haven’t officially announced the T20 squad, but they would like to continue with the same squad as to gel out the same set of players for the world cup. Nicholas Pooran should come in the squad in place of John Campbell, Fabian Allen should be given a chance in this T20 series, Andre Russell injury is still under the clouds so it is difficult to predict about his inclusion.
Probable Playing eleven: Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Darren Bravo/Andre Russell, Devendra Bishoo/Fabian Allen, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder (c), Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Oshane Thomas
T20I specialist Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, and Dawid Malan are some of the players that will join the side and will get a chance in this series. They have rested Buttler and Stokes just to manage their workload, even without them, this looks a solid T20 side.
Probable Playing eleven: Eoin Morgan(c), Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett/ David Willey, Adil Rashid, Joe Root.
