T20 WC, England vs USA: Fantasy XI Prediction, teams, captain, vice-captain, toss and venue analysis

Jun 21, 2024 12:54 PM IST

England face USA in their upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 fixture.

England and USA will clash in Match 49 of the 2024 T20 World Cup in Barbados on Sunday. England has a devastating batting line-up which has now started to peak in the tournament but their bowling is slightly under-par and this is where the USA batting line-up can cash in. The only way for the USA to pull off an upset is to counter-attack the England bowlers. Jos Buttler and Aaron Jones will be the two batters to watch out for in the match.

Venue and Pitch

The historic Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados has hosted six matches in this tournament with the team setting a target coming out victorious on three occasions. The chasing team has just won one encounter at the venue while one match ended in a tie and another was a washout. The captain winning the toss has opted to bat first and chase, both on three occasions. The average score batting first in Barbados in the tournament is 162/8.

The pitch in Barbados will assist the pacers as it has historically. But the wicket has true bounce and the ball comes onto the bat so the batters will enjoy batting in Barbados. The highest score at the venue in this tournament is Australia's 201 against England. While the mean temperature in Barbados on Sunday will be 28 degrees, there is a 50% chance of showers.

Match Prediction

England will start overwhelming favourites in Barbados. They have the might in batting to annihilate the USA. However, England's bowling has been a touch under-par and they lack firepower in the department. This is where USA will have a chance in the match. Buttler is expected to score a big one while Aaron Jones needs to make it count for the USA. England have an 80% chance of victory.

Fantasy XI

And finally, this is our Fantasy XI for the USA vs England encounter. We have 8 players from England and 3 from USA. Buttler and Jacks will be devastating in the powerplay while Brook and Bairstow will control the middle overs. Mark Wood and Netravalkar will bowl with the new ball and Moeen Ali and Rashid will control the middle overs. Jos Buttler will be the captain while Jones will be the vice-captain.

Our backup players are Ben Duckett as batter, Jofra Archer as bowler and Harmeet as all-rounder.
