England will open their World T20 campaign against West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday, March 16, starting 7:30 pm local time and 2 pm GMT.

As per the Bleacher Report, both teams have clashed 12 times in the shortest format of the game out of which the Caribbean team has overpowered the English team in eight occasions.

The Group 1 fixture will be competitive as the list features teams like Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Afghanistan.

According to the ESPN Cricinfo reports, West Indies started their World Cup campaign with two warm-up matches against host country India, and Australia. West Indies regained some of their lost form last Sunday against Australia following a loss to India. Chris Gayle will definitely be one of the players to look out for in the entire tournament. He has redefined playing standards in the shorter formats of the game and his impact on the game is huge.

Adil Rashid for England will hold a key spot, especially on a pitch like Wankhede. Both teams look solid on paper and it will be interesting to see the all-around performances of either side.
