The Caribbean charmers, who clinched the title in 2012, have a string of all-round cricketers to bank upon as they seek to establish themselves again among the top-notch teams in the shortest format of the game.
     
England, on the other hand, have the wherewithal to stop the marauders from the West Indies to continue their pursuit of a second World T20 crown after establishing themselves as the champions in 2010.
     
Both the sides go into the match after victories in warm-up games. While West Indies lost to India but managed to stun Australia, England won both their matches against New Zealand and Mumbai.
     
West Indies, led by Darren Sammy, who is among the players who can bat and bowl effectively alongside Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell, comes into the game with a 5-4 advantage over England in head-to-head contests that includes a 3-3 record in World T20 encounters.
     
It all may boil down to how the two teams play against the spin bowlers on a Wankhede Stadium track that could offer some turn and bounce.
