It has been five and a half years since the most memorable T20Is were played between West Indies and England in the final of the T20 World Cup in 2016.

Dubai: It has been five and a half years since the most memorable T20 played between West Indies and England in the final of the T20 World Cup in 2016. “It was one of the most incredible sporting events you’ll ever see,” Eoin Morgan said of the 2016 T20 World Cup final.

England will rely on their opening pair Jason Roy and Jos Buttler to do well with the bat, while pacer Mark Wood will be aiming to replicate his form in the warm-up games. West Indies, on the other hand, would be hoping for more consistency during the Super 12 stage, having lost two heated games against Pakistan and Afghanistan respectively.

Both teams have played 18 games against each other, of which 11 games were marked in favor of West Indies while the English counterpart won only 7.

England captain Eoin Morgan said before the game, “The last two years have probably been the most consistent in T20 International cricket, certainly in my tenure as captain. We have shown that we can get 200 or maybe more, And play in a dogfight game as well – 130 or 140 games. The side that takes the best of all three places throughout this tournament will continue to win.”

Kieron Pollard is not worried about West Indies’ practice performance as he said before the match “The boys are excited. We accept that the two practice matches didn’t go the way we wanted, in terms of the number of runs we scored.” Searching, scoring as many runs. But we understand that people are ready for it, people are ready to start this tournament.”
