England vs West Indies, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 19

The Rose Bowl, Southampton
With the overcast conditions on offer, pacers should get some help up front while the batsman should be able to play their natural game once they get themselves in. Spinners might come into the game in the middle overs which gives the likes of Adil Rashid and Ashley Nurse a glimmer of hope in a tournament that has been dominated by pacers and short-balls.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Shai Hope and Johnny Bairstow are the preferred options in the wicket-keepers section with Jos Buttler’s fitness still uncertain. Bairstow hit a fluent fifty against Bangladesh to get his World Cup going and would be eager to continue his good form against West Indies on Friday.
Batsmen: Chris Gayle and Joe Root are must-have players in the side while the experience of England’s highest capped player Eoin Morgan is also a decent option to have in the fantasy team. Shimron Hetmyer has been demoted to number five to accommodate Nicolas Pooran but should prove to be a worth-while picks considering his record against England in this format.
All-rounders: Ben Stokes has been pivotal to England’s performance in this World Cup with the Durham allrounder scoring 108 runs and picking five wickets so far. Along with him, one of Jason Holder or Andre Russell should suffice given their ability to score quick runs when necessary.
Bowlers: Jofra Archer has been England’s best bowler this tournament with six wickets to his name. His ability with the new ball has been pivotal in setting the tone for the likes of Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood thus making him a great option for this game. Along with him, in-form West Indian duo of Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas should suffice as the final bowling options in the fantasy team.
Captain: Johnny Bairstow and Chris Gayle are due for a big one this tournament after scoring only one fifty so far. Both are ideal candidates to have as captain or vice-captain while Ben Stokes is also a decent option to ponder upon given his all-round abilities.
