It is the 2nd game of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023, and two-time World Cup winners West Indies would take on the United States. West Indies will be confident as they have done well in warm-up games, with key players delivering for the side. United States, on the other hand, lost both games and must get over their poor form.  

The United States bowlers looked out of shape and rhythm in both their warm-up games. It will be a major challenge for the side as they face the strongest batting line-up in the tournament. West Indies has experienced players and momentum on their side, and they will look to capitalize on it.

West Indies Preview

Shai Hope's side did brilliantly in the warm-up games against Scotland and United Aram Emirates. The West Indies skipper shall like his side to continue with the same form and momentum and win their first game. He has his batsmen in good form and shall look to bank on this strength and make a strong statement in this game.  

They will look for a good start in this game from Brandon King and Johnson Charles, as both these players can score quick runs. The middle order is strong, and they will need a good show from Shai Hope, Rovman Powell, and Nicholas Pooran. Roston Chase, Jason Holder, and Keemo Paul add firepower down the order, making this a formidable line-up.  

The side will look for a good show with the new ball from the experienced pair of Keemo Paul and Alzarri Joseph. Jason Holder will look to trouble the United States' batsmen with his variations. Yannic Cariah did well in the warm-up games and will have an important role in the middle overs with Akeal Hosein. Mayers and Chase add to the side's bowling options.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Shai Hope (c & wk), Brandon King, Rovman Powell, Johnson Charles, Nicholas Pooran, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein, Roston Chase, Yannic Cariah

United States Preview

Monank Patel's team must put behind their poor performances in the warm-up games. They went down by 198 runs in the last game against Sri Lanka. They are up against a batting powerhouse, and Patel will like a determined effort from his bowlers. They must stick to the basics to challenge their formidable opponent in this game.  

Openers Steven Taylor and Sushant Modani must deliver a good start as they face an experienced bowling attack. In the middle order, Patel must lead from the front and add runs with Aaron Jones and Gajanand Singh. Saiteja Mukkamalla and Jessy Singh must score quick runs in the lower middle order.   

As West Indies have a power-packed top order, Saurabh Netravalkar and Ali Khan must deliver early wickets with the new ball. Usman Rafiq and Jessy Singh have a crucial role in the middle overs, and they must stop the flow of runs. Nosthush Kenjige, Minak Patel, and Steven Taylor must do well in supporting roles for the side to win this game.

Weather Conditions

It will be clear skies over Harare on June 16, and we expect to see another flat track where batsmen would enjoy their time. The ball would come onto the bat nicely, allowing batsmen to play their strokes. The side batting first shall look to make 300 runs to feel safe on this wicket.

Venue Details

Takashinga Sports Club, Harare, has a batting-friendly surface. We have seen big scores being put on the board as batsmen can play their strokes freely. There isn't much on this track for the fast bowlers. Spinners do well as the ball gets old and starts to turn sharply, especially in the game's second innings.

Toss: To Bat

We have seen high-scoring contests during the warm-up games. The wickets have been excellent to bat on in the first innings and have slowed down towards the end, making run chases difficult. The side winning the toss here would have little hesitation in batting first. 

The United States come here struggling with their form. The bowling attack has found it difficult to bowl on these tracks, and they need to deliver a good show for the side to have a chance in this game. West Indies have firepower and depth in their batting. Their bowling attack is experienced, giving them a clear edge in this contest.
