A flat track beckons the two sides with both West Indies and Sri Lanka scoring in excess of 300 in the previous game here. There will be some swing upfront with the new ball although the batsmen should be able to play their natural game on this surface from the start.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Inspite of their below average form, Jos Buttler and Tom Latham are the preferred choices ahead of Jonny Bairstow with both of them expected to score some runs come Wednesday. While Buttler has shone in glimpses, Latham has had a dismal tournament and would love to come to the party in what is a do-or-die game for the Kiwis.
Batsmen: Kane Williamson and Joe Root have done well this World Cup with more than 440 runs to their names whilst batting in the top order. Both of them are must have players in the team alongside the likes of Martin Guptill and Eoin Morgan, who are due for a big score on Wednesday.
Allrounders: Ben Stokes has arguably been England’s best player with 370 runs and six wickets to his name. He is one to keep an eye on while one of Colin de Grandhomme or Jimmy Neesham should suffice in the allrounders department.
Bowlers: The trio of Chris Woakes, Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson are picked in the bowling department given their wicket-taking ability and form heading into this game. Along with them, Jofra Archer is also a decent option provided the balance of the side suffices while Liam Plunkett has also impressed to warranty a place in the team.
Captain: Kane Williamson and Joe Root are considered to be among the elite batsmen alongside Virat Kohli and Steven Smith and should turn up in this much-awaited clash. With their bowling ability already yielding a couple of wickets, they are valuable assets to choose as captain. Along with them, Ben Stokes and Martin Guptill are also viable options to opt for as captain.
