Cricket Betting Tips Key Players
Jason Roy is the key batsman for England with crucial knocks in all the matches thus far. He has hit a century and three half-centuries in the tournament and is the leading run scorer for England. He made 153 runs in the last match against Bangladesh and the team would be looking for more such performances from him. Joe Root and Jos Butler are the other key players for the side in terms of batting.
Jofra Archer has been sensational with bowling and took three wickets in the match against Bangladesh. He would be a threat for the Windies batting line-up. Chris Woakes has been impressive and he needs to take the responsibility of providing early breakthroughs. Other key bowlers include Mark Wood and Ben Stokes.

West Indies were unlucky in the last match against South Africa as the match was abandoned due to rain. They were in a comfortable position and looking good. They started off the campaign in style but it was dimmed in the next match against Australia which was a close one.
Cricket Betting Tips Key Players
Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran and Shai Hope are the key batsmen in the side and all of them had a hit in the tournament so far. Shimron Hetmyer is a vital player and needs to contribute with the bat. Shai Hope is in fine touch and has not left any stone unturned.
Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell and Jason Holder lead the bowling attack for Windies. They have been impressive so far and would be causing problems to the English batsmen. Thomas is the leading wicket-taker for the side. Cottrell along with Thomas would be expected to strike early in the match.

Cricket Betting Tips and Prediction
England West Indies met just a few weeks before the tournament and it was a 2-2 draw in the series. England lacked the leading pacer and West Indies didn’t have Andre Russell in the side. We can expect it to be a tough game as both teams would be fighting hard for a win. Windies has more match-winners in the side and England is more consistent.
We bet on England to win this match.
