Hosts England take on West Indies in the 19th match of the World Cup at The Rose Bowl, Southampton on 14th June 2019. The West Indies side had a great start to their campaign, thrashing Pakistan in their opening game before losing to Australia at the same venue. Their previous encounter against South Africa did not produce a result. They would be keen to make a comeback into the tournament with a win and show the world as to what they are capable of.

Meanwhile, England who are one among the favorites to win the tournament have smashed scores in excess of 300 in all their games and their batsmen would like to continue the same against the mighty West Indies bowling attack. Their bowling line up also looks settled with almost every bowler contributing.

Trivia:

Chris Gayle holds the record for the second most runs scored by any West Indian batsmen in World Cups. Till date, he has scored 1015 runs, behind Brian Lara who has scored 1225 runs. He has also scored two centuries in World Cups, behind Sir Viv Richards, who has three.

Darren Bravo who has got out for a duck on four occasions in World Cup games holds the first place for West Indies in this regard.
