About the Match

We think the Dolphins have everything going for them. They have the stronger side, have been in form, and are going to go in the contest with a lot of confidence. Their superior batting lineup makes them very dangerous. The Cape Cobras have a few match winners in their side but are lacking the really big names that Dolphins boast of.

Back the Dolphins to win.

Match Preview

West Indies

The Windies got to their second highest ever score in the previous match and still ended up on the losing side. In fact, the ease with which England chased down the total leads up to believe that the Windies ended up 25 runs short.

The Kensington Oval has a very short boundary on one side and the wind was blowing in that direction as well. That made protecting the boundary very difficult and a lot of sixes were hit in that direction. What can the Windies do differently in this upcoming match?

For one thing, we think that Chris Gayle played a brilliant individual inning but that his team could have been helped with some lesser dot balls. Gayle eventually ended up with 135 from 129 deliveries, which is a strike rate of 104.65. It's good, no doubt, but Gayle is not going to be able to hit 12 sixes in every match to be able to make up for the dot balls he faces.

For the Windies sake, Gayle either needs to hit a century or get out first ball. Anything in between is going to hurt them. There is a lot of power in the WIndies camp with players like Shimron Hetmyer, John Campbell, Nicholas Pooran, and Darren Bravo.

It can be argued that the belligerent 40 from Bravo and 25 from Ashley Nurse is what enable the WIndies to get to 360 otherwise they would have ended around 300 despite the Chris Gayle century.

The batting is not really a concern at the moment, though, and we are sure that the Windies would take a score of 360 every single day. Their bowling and fielding were atrocious and those are the aspects that need rapid improvement.

None of the bowlers was able to exert any sort of control on England or threaten the wickets. The few chances that were created went to ground and made the task even easier for the West Indies. Finding a whole new set of bowlers is not possible and so the Windies might just stick to the same lineup and hope that they perform better this time around.

West Indies Starting Lineup

Chris Gayle, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell.

England

The Englishman would have been a bit rattled at the halfway stage, no matter what they say. The English bowling was put to the sword but their strong batting came to the rescue once again. There is no other team in world cricket that can play the kind of game that England is playing right now.

The England side is loaded with power from top to bottom and Joe Root plays the anchor role to perfection as well. Joe Root did not hit a single six yet scored a century at a fractionally better strike rate than Chris Gayle. This is the advantage of not eating up dot balls.

Jason Roy scored a brilliant hundred at the top at a strike rate of 144.70, Eoin Morgan made 65, and Ben Stokes played a useful hand as well. The fact that Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, and Chris Woakes all remained unused in the chase shows just how blessed England is in the batting department.

The only way that England is going to get outbatted by the Windies is by suffering a collapse. This is why the role of Joe Root as a calm head in the middle of it all is so important. He ensures that the strike keeps ticking over and can keep one end up while the other batsmen play freely.

We also thought that the English bowling was much better than the Windies. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid went for some runs when they came in to bowl but the rest of the bowlers did quite well. Woakes picked up two wickets and Stokes picked up three to be the pick of the bowlers.

Ben Stokes hit the pitch hard when he needed to and slowed it up when the batsmen seemed to be coming hard at him. His ability as the best all-rounder in the world gives England a massive advantage.

We don’t think England needs to make any changes to its side but it may still want to give a couple of players on the bench a chance. Tom Curran is someone that comes to mind as a player that could be very useful on the Caribbean surfaces.

England Starting Lineup

JJ Roy, Jonny Bairstow, JE Root, Eoin Morgan, BA Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, AU Rashid, LE Plunkett, M Wood, Tom Curran.

Toss Prediction

The side winning the toss is likely to want to bat first

Pitch and Conditions

The second ODI between the Windies and England is going to be played at the Kensington Oval, Barbados. The weather forecast for match day is encouraging and we are hopeful of another match without any rain. The weather can change quickly in the islands, though.

The pitch was flat and excellent for batting in the first ODI and not much is going to change. If anything, the square may be a bit slower due to having been used just a couple of days back. The small boundaries ensure that a high scoring match is the most likely outcome looking at the batting power available on both sides.

Our Prediction

The Windies played very well in one half of the game but gave it away in the other. England looks primed for the ICC World Cup 2019 and is going to be tough to stop. We also think that West Indies is going to have a much tougher time getting big scores consistently as compared to England.

Stick with the favorites in this one as well.

Back England to win.
