USA vs West Indies on June 22


The West Indies will lock horns with the USA at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on June 22, 2024, at 6 am IST. This is an encounter that the tournament did not anticipate, yet one that it rightfully merits. The co-hosts of this year's T20 World Cup navigated their way through the group-stages, each employing distinctive methods that varied in their degree of surprise. The West Indies asserted their dominance in the league phase, securing convincing victories in all four matches. In contrast, the USA, despite commencing the tournament with a couple of wins, relied on adverse weather conditions in Florida to narrowly advance past Pakistan. Pakistan, despite winning their last couple of league games, fell short of qualification. However, both teams encountered setbacks in their initial Super Eight matches in distinctive manners, underscoring the significance and pivotal nature of their upcoming clash. The team that suffers defeat in this contest will witness a substantial decline in their chances of advancing, thus rendering this match a critical must-win scenario for both sides. 

Best economical pick – Given the track favoring spinners in Barbados, and with Gudakesh Motie's adeptness and diverse repertoire as a left-arm spinner, his consistent form throughout the tournament suggests he will capitalize on favorable pitch conditions provided he lands the ball on the right areas.

Top captains & vice captains – West Indies held their hopes high till the time Nicholas Pooran was on the wicket against England. Once he departed the West Indian batting began to struggle. Nicholas Pooran will have to be the lead batter if West Indies have to win against USA and keep their Semi-Finals hopes intact. Since Monank Patel's absence following the match against Pakistan, Aaron Jones has taken charge. After the stand-in captain was dismissed for a duck against South Africa, he would be eager to demonstrate the same skills showcased during the tournament's curtain-raiser against Canada. 

Smart pick – The USA wicket-keeper and batter Andries Gous was at his best during the game against South Africa and nearly pulled off a miraculous win. If his team has to keep their hopes alive all the hopes will rest on Andries Gous to come good with the bat once more.

Cautious Pick – One of the most experienced pacers in the USA side, Ali Khan was hit for 45 runs from his 4 overs to endure a terrible day with the ball. It will be advisable not to pick the veteran pacer considering his inconsistent showing with the ball in recent times.

My XI – Nicholas Pooran (Captain), Aaron Jones (Vice-Captain), Gudakesh Motie, Andries Gous,  Andre Russell, Saurabh Netravalkar, Johnson Charles, Corey Anderson, Rovman Powell, Nitish Kumar, Brandon King
