West Indies will be taking on England in the fifth T20I match of the 5-game series. The WI vs ENG encounter will take place at the Kensington Oval in Bridgestone. Despite having wickets in hand, West Indies failed to chase 193 runs in the 4th T20I and fell short of the target by 34 runs. Kyle Mayers, who came in as a replacement for Shai Hope played some magnificent shots at the start of the innings and even Jason Holder’s brilliant all-round show couldn’t help them either.
England, on the other hand, were positive right from the start in the 4th T20I. Half-centuries from Jason Roy and Moeen helped them to post 193 runs on the board, and later some fin death bowling helped them to level the series 2-2. Now it’s all down to the wire and whoever wins this game will clinch the series.

England are expected to emerge out of this exciting fixture with the winner’s share of the purse. They have a stronger unit as compared to their opponents heading into the fourth match, despite lacking the services of Eoin Morgan and have been nothing but sensational throughout the series as well despite being down a match. That being said, a closely contested match is sure on the cards.
