As we move into the third week of the 2019 ICC World Cup, England is set to host West Indies tomorrow at the Rose Bowl. Having been hammered by Pakistan, England bounced back against Bangladesh to register a comprehensive win. On the contrary, the Windies, who were once struggling to qualify for the World Cup, have been the most impressive team in this tournament. We can expect an intriguing battle when the title contenders square off with the dark horses at Southampton.
