About the Match

England finally has its first series win on the board on its tour to the West Indies 2019. The second t20 was a huge anti-climax as the West Indies batting failed spectacularly to give England its biggest T20 win in terms of runs. England flexed its batting muscles and ended up reaching a score which was a bit over par for the surface.

The final T20 match of the series is another chance for the players on both teams to try and put in another strong performance ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019. England seems to have squad contenders jumping from every side and has a problem of plenty. The West Indies also has a nice talent pool to choose from now that its senior players have returned to the fold but it needs to commit to a few positions and allow the players to grow into the role.

Match Preview

West Indies

There is nothing that could have been gained from a batting performance like the one the West Indies put in during the second T20 international and this is why the home side would do well to forget about it completely.

It is possible for an ultra-aggressive batting lineup like the one the West Indies has to implode on certain occasions. The same has been seen with England as well and I guess there is nothing to do but to accept that as players and fans.

The highest scorer for the team was 10 made by both Carlos Brathwaite and Shimron Hetmyer. The entire West Indies team folded for just 45 runs in 11.5 overs. It was a performance that utterly and completely forgettable.

We have been speaking about how Chris Gayle’s form was covering up for some of the West Indies batting frailties in the ODI series. He has not been able to get going in the T20’s and the batting has started to falter.

There is enough talent in the side to be able to put runs on the board in most games and we expect the West Indian batsmen to fight back strongly. Shimron Hetmyer has been given a chance to bat up the order but has not really made use of his opportunities. He is a supremely talented player and we think he could be someone to watch out for in the final T20.

We also think that Jason Holder has got a bit carried away with his batting position. There is no way that he should be batting ahead of Nicholas Pooran in the side. The West Indian bowling is not bad but it definitely needs to cushion of runs to be at its most effective.

West Indies Starting Lineup

John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Jason Holder, F Allen, Carlos Brathwaite, Devendra Bishoo, Sheldon Cottrell, Obed McCoy.


England

A crushing victory in the second T20 international has given the visitors the first series victory to England on this tour of the West Indies. Now, the side has an opportunity to try some more players for the ICC World Cup 2019. The depth of the England side means that they can rotate players without letting the quality or intensity drop one bit.

One player that has been making headlines is Chris Jordan. He is a death overs specialist, one of the best fielders in the world, and a handy batsman down the order. For some reason, Chris Jordan has fallen out of the reckoning in the ODI squad but his exploits in this series are not going to go unnoticed.

Chris Jordan managed to pick up 4 wickets for just 6 runs in the second T20 to add to this wickets in the first match as well. His ability to hit the yorker length from the first ball make him an exciting option to consider.

Sam Billings top-scored in the previous match with 87 of just 47 deliveries and continues to prove his worth to the England side as well. England was in a tricky situation being 32 for the loss of four wickets when a partnership between Joe Root and Sam Billings helped the side recover.

Billings also cleared the boundary three times, the most for any player on both sides.

There is no doubt that the England side is a better batting side than the West Indies. They may not have the explosive power that some of the West Indian batsmen so effortlessly generate but England is not short on power hitters either.

Joe Root made 55 from 40 balls and kept the side from falling apart much like the West Indies did when wickets started falling in a heap.

The bowling attack comprised of Tom Curran, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, and Chris Jordan in the previous match. This is also far superior to what the West Indies has been putting out and perhaps the biggest difference between the teams.

England Starting Lineup

AD Hales, Jonny Bairstow, JE Root, Eoin Morgan, Joe Denly, Sam Billings, David Willey, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, AU Rashid, M Wood.

Pitch and Conditions

The 3rd T20 match between the West Indies and England is going to be played at Warner Park, Basseterre, St. Kitts. The weather forecast is for clear skies and sun all day so we should have another beautiful day for cricket.

The pitch at St. Kitts was flat and good for batting but lacked the pace that some of the other pitches have had this series. This is only going to become more pronounced in the second match and so we could have a bit of dip in the scoring.

Match Prediction

The West Indies does not seem to be too switched on when it comes to the T20 series. They certainly have the players to play a brilliant match-winning but as of now, they are outclassed by a better prepared, better drilled, and more professional England side.

Back England to win.
