USA vs England on June 23


Jos Buttler & Co began their Super Eight campaign on a high note as they thrashed West Indies in their backyard while chasing a target of 181 runs. But the former champions could not replicate the same performance against Aiden Markram's South Africa as they suffered a seven-run defeat. After being asked to bat first the Proteas posted a total of 163/6. In reply, the Three Lions were on the right track to chase down the total but lost s few wickets in the middle and eventually lost the game. Meanwhile, the debutants, following an outstanding performance in the group stage, have been unable to regain their winning ways since the start of the Super Eight round. In their first match against South Africa, Aaron Jones & Co. failed to chase down the score and lost by 18 runs. In their previous game against the West Indies, the team was bundled out for a mere 128, which the former champions easily chased down with nine wickets to spare.  

Best economical pick Sam Curran could be the final all-rounder in England’s line-up against the USA. The last edition's Player of the Tournament bowled three overs in his previous game, where he failed to take any wickets and conceded 29 runs to his name. Furthermore, he stayed unbeaten on a score of 10 runs as well. With the game against the USA approaching, Curran will be expected to blossom as well.

Top captains & vice captains Phil Salt has been in brilliant form since the start of the World Cup. He is the leading run-getter for his side in this tournament with 158 runs after six matches. In the first Super Eight game, he scored an unbeaten 47-ball 87 against West Indies before following it up with an 8-ball 11 versus South Africa. Salt's role as an opener is going to be very crucial against the co-hosts USA. Harry Brook  was one of the best batters for England in the side’s recent loss to South Africa. The youngster scored 53 runs in 37 deliveries, hoping to propel his side to a win. He will look to put in a similar showing in the upcoming game as well.

Smart pick Jofra Archer has bowled with pace and bagged nine wickets in six games at an average of 15.66. He is the highest wicket-taker for his side in the tournament thus far. In the previous game against South Africa, the pacer picked three wickets in a losing cause. His four overs will be key against the USA batters.

Cautious Pick – The English all-rounder line-up is where the team will hope to shine. Veteran pro Moeen Ali will hope to lead from the front; his outing for England against South Africa was subpar. Bowling three overs, Ali conceded 25 runs, took one wicket, and followed it up by scoring nine runs in the second innings. The 37-year-old will hope to utilize his experience in the upcoming game and do better.

My XI – Phil Salt (Captain), Harry Brook (Vice-Captain), Sam Curran, Jofra Archer, Aaron Jones, Adil Rashid, Saurabh Netravalkar, Jos Buttler, Andries Gous, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow
