The upcoming game between England and West Indies in the ICC World Cup 2019 is in threat of getting washed out due to rain as well as a thick cloud cover has been hovering in Southampton for the last few days. However, if a game does take place, two premier all-rounders, who have set the cricketing field on fire with their skills, Andre Russell and Ben Stokes will be in action, and the battle between the duo will be an interesting one to watch out for. 

Russell - returning after injury - has displayed his skills with both bat and ball in the recent IPL, and will be eager to go one up over his rival Stokes. With all-rounders capable of changing the complexion of the game - both Stokes and Russell would want to play a good hand here. 

Russell, so far, has outweighed Stokes with the ball this CWC, extracting good pace and swing from the surface to pick up regular wickets. Stokes, on the other hand, has a good record against Windies, picking up 10 wickets in 13 games with 332 runs. The West Indian Russell, has scored 56 runs in two games whilst picking up 4 wickets.
