New Delhi: England and West Indies will play their opening encounter of the ICC World Twenty20 campaign in a Super 10, Group 1 encounter at the Wankhede stadium, Mumbai on Wednesday.
England won both the warm-up ties earlier and skipper Eoin Morgan will bank on his side to get the better of unpredictable West Indies. England batting line-up looks strong on paper and they have to get themselves kicking in order to make something out of the encounter.
Meanwhile, West Indies will look to put their troubles behind them and click as an unit to start the campaign in a positive note. The Darren Sammy-led side have plenty of match-winners in their kitty and with their valuable experience in the Indian Premier League, they would know what the conditions demand.
Despite missing out on some big names, Windies still have enough firepower to get this through.
