The United States and West Indies will clash in a must-win game of Super Eight after losing their first matches against South Africa and England respectively.

Proteas and USA clashed in the first Super Eight fixture where South Africa set a 195-run target for the USA after Quinton de Kock's blistering knock of 74 runs off 40 balls. The USA were very much into the game till the 17th over but Kagiso Rabada's match-winning spell made the difference as the USA lost the game by 18 runs.

West Indies were dented by England in the second fixture. The Rovman Powell-led side managed to put 180 runs on the board after 20 overs which Jos Buttler & Co. chased down successfully in 17.3 overs with eight wickets in hand.

Now, both teams need a victory desperately to keep their hopes of the semi-finals alive. England will face South Africa in the other Group 2 match.
