Match Prediction Women's T20 World Cup 2020 16th match - England v West Indies
The 16th match of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 between England and West Indies will be played at the Sydney Showground Stadium in Sydney.
England started off their campaign with an unanticipated 6-wicket loss against South Africa. In their next match, the team beat Thailand by a big margin of 98 runs. Against Pakistan as well, which was expected to go a lot closer, England came out victorious - comfortably winning the game by 42 runs.
The big problem for them is that their openers Danni Wyatt and Amy Ellen Jones have not fired till now. The middle order, particularly Natalie Sciver and Heather Knight, are in good nick and also contributed well against Pakistan. The two will continue to be the mainstays of the team's batting line-up.
Anya Shrubsole, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Ecclestone and Sarah Glenn were all among the wickets in the last game.
West Indies have not looked at their best in this tournament. Despite starting off with a 7-wicket victory against Thailand, it was evident that the team had a few chinks in their armour. Those were exposed in their encounter against Pakistan in which they lost by 8 wickets.
A lot will depend on skipper Stefanie Taylor and wicketkeeper Shemaine Campbelle. The onus would be on Anisa Mohammed and Afy Fletcher with the ball.
Let's have a look at the playing XI of both teams:
West Indies - Hayley Matthews, Lee-Ann Kirby, Stafanie Taylor (c), Deandra Dottin, Shemaine Campbelle (wk), Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Aaliyah Alleyne, Anisa Mohammed, Afy Fletcher, Shamilia Connell
