ICC World Twenty20 final: England vs West Indies - Players to watch out for

New Delhi: England's duel against West Indies on Sunday has been dubbed as a battle of the power hitters.

Both sides have shown their ability to blast opponents off the park when it comes to batting.

Windies showed their pedigree when they chased down 193 against India in the semi-final, while South Africa's 229 runs were not enough against England in the group stage of the tournament.

Darren Sammy's side leads the head-to-head (9-4) in T20Is against Eoin Morgan's men.

With plenty of hard-hitting players in the ranks of both teams, the final could be a high-scoring one.

Here are two players who can make a huge difference in thee grand finale.

Chris Gayle: The big hitting West Indian set the tournament on fire with an unbeaten ton against England in the group stage. However, fans have not witnessed any fireworks from the left-hander's bat since then. The Jamaican scored an IPL ton at the Eden Gardens few years ago. If Gayle gets his eye in, Kolkata crowd will be in for a treat. From England's perspective, getting him out as soon as possible should be the prime objective.

Jason Roy: The England opener has provided explosive starts for his side in crucial games. The right-hander's brutal approach at the top of the innings gives the Poms a chance to chase down any total. The 25-year-old dismantled a strong New Zealand bowling attack with 78 runs off just 44 balls. His other good performances include 42 and 43-run knocks against Sri Lanka and South Africa respectively. Roy hold the key to England's chances in the final.
