Till now, England did not win any of the ICC Cricket World cups. On the other hand, West Indies have achieved this feat twice but that was way back in 1975 and in 1979. “The mighty Windies” won both the first two events of ICC Cricket World Cup. Clive Lloyd led the West Indies to the World Cup triumphs both times consecutively in 1975 and in 1979. He was declared a man of the match in the final of 1979 World Cup where West Indies beat Australia by 17 runs at Lord’s cricket ground, London. At the second instance, West Indies comfortably won against England by 92 runs in 1979 at the same venue. Sir Viv Richards was declared a man of the match this time. That was the only time when viewers got a chance to see an England vs West Indies ICC World Cup final.

If we compare the teams and performances of the last few years, of both the teams, then England surely has got a better track record than the Windies. England cricket team have shown their grit by their performances to lift this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. England cricket team are being considered as the favorites to lift the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Both their Batting and Bowling departments have the capability to exploit any team. Their bowling unit has numerous options such as Mark Wood, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, and Ben Stokes to give a tough fight to any Batting combination. England Cricket team have the required power hitters at the lower order to strengthen their run rate in the later part of the innings. England has one of the most stable batting orders in this year’s world cup. Their key batting top order includes Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root. Players like Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes are included in the squad as a pinch hitter to accelerate the run rate if required. England Cricket team have always shown that determination, but they could not achieve the glory at the greatest event yet. They have been to the World Cup final against West Indies in 1979 and against Pakistan in 1992, but the lady luck was not on their side.

England had toured India to play 5 test matches, 3 one days and 3 t20s. England’s performance has been so much up to the mark that they won the one-day series by 2-1 and test series by 4-1. At the end of 2018, England toured Sri Lanka to play 5 one days, 3 test matches and 1 t20. This time, they performed much better and won the one-day series by 3-1 (one match was called off due to rain) and test series by 3-0.

On the other hand, if we look at the performances of the West Indies team, it was not less than a nightmare for their fans. They needed to play the World Cup qualifiers, this thing alone was an unpleasant dream for their fans. Although, their performance was poor, but there were more reasons off the ground for their bad performances than on the ground. West Indies Cricket is being missing players like DJ Bravo, Kieron Pollard and Sammy due to their belittling relations with their cricket Board. Their players are more concerned about playing in different T20 leagues rather than playing for the country.

In recent past, England has toured West Indies, where West Indies leveled the ODI series by 2-2 (third ODI was called off due to rain). West Indies had shown a great fight during this series. During fourth ODI, they almost chased the target of 418 runs, they fell just 29 runs short to the target but that match showed that their batting has the capability to chase big targets.
