England look to continue dominance against spirited West Indies

Southampton, Jun 13 (UNI) After a convincing 106-run victory over Bangladesh,
England will be up against a vibrant West Indies unit in their fourth match of the
ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 here on Friday.
After a shocking defeat to Pakistan, England aced every department against
Bangladesh, as they first put up 386/6 on board and then bundled them out for
280 in the 49th over. The openers, determined not to fall into the trap of spin
bowling, gave a perfect start, as Jason Roy stroked his way to 153.
While Stokes has been giving some priceless overs with the ball, Moeen Ali is
likely to return in the playing eleven, considering the number of left handers in
the West Indies line-up.
On the other hand, the West Indies' bowlers might have lit up the tournament
so far but it was the lack of application on the batting front that cost them the
game against Australia. Their pacers started well against South Africa too, with
Sheldon Cottrell picking up two early wickets, before no further play was possible
due to rain interruption. The batsmen will have to step up, to set it up for their
bowlers who will be challenged by the never-ending English batting line-up.
Once their very own, now their adversary, Jofra Archer will look to defy Chris
Gayle and others, promising an exciting contest within a contest at the Hampshire
Bowl on Friday.
Squads:
England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk),
Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben
Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shannon Gabriel,
Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite,
Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Oshane
Thomas.
