West Indies to win!
Cricket - T20 International
Instead of having to read cricket tips from peeps that may not fully understand the game, playing for the sake of the competitions, lets go with a Cricket tip how a cricket tip should be presented..
The West Indies have NOT won a game on this tour of England which means England will automatically win today, correct..?
Not to anyone that knows anything about Cricket, this is the one form of the game which England don't pay much particular attention to and are not the greatest at.
West Indies have a big advantage in that they have beaten England in 5 of their last 7 T20 Internationals. What isn't clear to see for a non cricket follower purely working on stats is that the West Indies have been poor all series but this is the one format of the game they are able to compete with England.
Let's put it this way the West Indies have Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo returning to the squad for this game and they are returning from India playing a large number of games in this format and performing very well.
Let have a look at the wicket for today's game a hard, flat deck that will promote big hitting - exactly what West Indies need. Does this type of wicket ring a bell to anyone cause to me it sounds abit like an Indian wicket, the type of wicket the in coming West Indies individuals played very well on in India.
Trent Bridge usually produces a batting wicket and the England side will not be a strong as in the ODI series, the West Indies will be desperate to get a win on the board for the series before they go home and for me it will be today..
