CWC 2019 Match 19 – England vs West Indies Fantasy Preview

The ICC 2019 World Cup isn’t exactly being very entertaining as of now, since the last couple of games have been washed out due to rain. In fact, it feels like the World Cup has just taken a sort of break right now. 40% chances of precipitation for the next game means the chances of having a game are slightly higher as England play West Indies in Match 19 of the CWC 2019. When Windies toured here earlier this year, a very high-scoring series was drawn 2-2.

England won their first in style, lost to Pakistan and then triumphed over Bangladesh, putting them at #4 on the points table with 2 wins in 3 games. West Indies on the other hand beat Pakistan, lost to Australia and had one game washed out, putting them at #6. Remember, they beat the team that beat England. We’re in for an exciting contest and you can keep reading for our CricMoney (sign-up to get Rs.25 FREE) fantasy preview of the ENG vs WI match…

  • In the previous ODI series, Adil Rashid, Oshane Thomas were the highest wicket-takers (9 each).
  • Chris Gayle was the highest run-scorer in that series – 424 runs in 4 games.
  • Shai Hope has 3 fifties and 3 centuries in his last 11 international innings.
  • Windies have won 2 of their 6 previous ODIs here.
  • England have won 10 of their 17 previous ODIs here.
  • Eoin Morgan has 610 runs in 12 ODI innings here.


They are the World Cup favourites but they are up against the dark horses. The first name of your fantasy team sheet has to be Jason Roy. With over 300 runs here and 4 fifties in just 6 ODIs here, Roy is the man you want. He also has 4 fifties and 2 centuries in his last 10 innings and 200+ runs in 3 games in CWC 2019 so far. I’d choose him as my captain. The next one you want in your team is Eoin Morgan who is the highest run scorer at this ground and was also England’s highest in the ODI series vs Windies.

With the ball, Mark Wood’s ankle has begun playing up again which means Moeen Ali will be back into the squad. Knowing Moeen, he will latch onto this opportunity and I’ll pick him as my all-rounder ahead of Stokes. Windies will want to play their countryman Jofra Archer well, so I’ll skip him from my team for this game. I’m picking Adil Rashid and Liam Plunkett with the ball, who have 9 and 8 wickets respectively at this ground.

West Indies

The Universe Boss Chris Gayle is certainly a man on a mission. After a very successful IPL 2019, he comes into this CWC 2019 looking highly determined and after he took apart England in the ODI series this year, we know he will do well. He was the highest run scorer by almost double the next best and didn’t have a single score below fifty. The next one you want in your team is Shai Hope, who is easily the best batsman in the Windies lineup.

With Darren Bravo having only 2 double digit scores in his last 10 games, it’s a blessing that Evin Lewis is fit and ready to return to the side. With the ball, Sheldon Cottrell has been the most destructive and most likely to pick wickets, so I definitely have him in my CricMoney (sign-up to get Rs.25 FREE) fantasy team. Jason Holder also proved how handy he is with the bat against Australia, so pick him as he can also pick up wickets, picking 4 in CWC 2019 so far.
