England and West Indies will face each other to get their Super 8 campaign off the mark in the Group 2 in the ongoing T20 World Cup. The match will be played at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St Lucia on June 20 and will commence at 6 AM IST. 

West Indies remained unbeaten right through the group stage and are coming off a win over Afghanistan by 104 runs. Apart from that, they also defeated New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Uganda comfortably. However, the home side will be aware of the third team - South Africa - in the group and cannot afford to drop points at any stage in this round.

Meanwhile, England needed Australia's help to make it to the Super 8 round. But now that they are here, Jos Buttler and his men will look to be ruthless and be at their best in their title defence. England's game against Scotland got washed out while they lost to Australia before registering big wins over Oman and Namibia.

Daren Sammy Stadium, St Lucia Pitch Report

St Lucia is the only venue where the run-scoring has been easy in this T20 World Cup. Australia chased down 181 runs against Scotland while Sri Lanka and West Indies defended 201 and 218 runs comfortably winning by 83 and 104 runs respectively. The team batting first will have to go hell bent on scoring big which will then make the chase tough for the oppositions.
