Preview :

The 49th fixture of the T20 World Cup – England vs USA will take place on Sunday at the Kensington Oval Stadium in Bridgetown, Barbados. This will be the first meeting for both teams in international cricket and we expect an absolute thriller between the two.

England had a difficult time at the group stage but they somehow managed to finish 2nd in the Group B point. At the Super 8 stage, England started with a win against West Indies.


After two consecutive losses at the beginning of the tournament, the defending champions made a good comeback.

Phil Salt is the leading run-scorer for the team with 147 runs in 5 matches at an average of 49 and a strike rate of 181.48. Surprisingly, Jos Buttler has failed to make an impact this year as he is struggling at an average of 30.33 in 3 matches with a total score of 91 runs. On the bowling front, The return of Jofra Archer has worked wonders for the team. He is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 6 wickets in 5 matches at an economy of 6.25. Adil Rashid also stands tall with 6 wickets in 5 matches at an economy of 8.

It is the first time the USA has been part of a major ICC tournament. The team has performed beyond expectations and is expected to do wonders at the group stage. For runs, the squad is dependent on Andries Gous as he is the leading run-scorer and the 2nd highest run-getter in the tournament as of now. Gous has scored 182 runs in 4 matches at an average of 60.66 and a strike rate of 146.77. Aaron Jones is following him with 141 runs in 4 matches at an average of 70.50 and a strike rate of 151.61. On the bowling front, the USA has shown major struggles. They don’t have a strong bowling attack and the team is mostly dependent on Saurabh Netravalkar for wickets. Netravalkar is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 6 wickets in 4 matches at an economy of 5.21.
