England’s T20 World Cup campaign starts on 16 March (Wednesday) when they take on West Indies in a Group 1 encounter at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The team lead by Eoin Morgan come into this tournament as a surprise package with many impressed by their new aggressive approach towards the shorter formats of the game.
England won both their warm-up games, which would have given them the confidence to tackle spin friendly surfaces. However, they will have to make sure that they don’t get carried away by their approach. In Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root and skipper Morgan they have batsmen capable of winning games on their day while the bowling lead by Reece Topley is looking good.
