Who's got the edge?After a false start against the West Indies, and surviving a scare against Afghanistan in their third Super 10 fixture, England charged towards a second T20 final in six years.While Chris Gayle, who smashed an 11-six century in victory over England earlier in the competition, will be hoping to rediscover his form with the bat in Kolkata. The 36-year-old, who was rested for the shock defeat to Afghanistan, has posted just four and five in two innings since his ton against England and his team-mates were reliant on Lendl Simmons to reach Sunday's showpiece.

West Indies Women are 118 for 0 - yes, you read that correctly - and need 31 runs from the last 29 balls to lift the World Cup - get set for a dramatic finale...
