Despite Friday's tense Super 8 defeat to South Africa, T20 World Cup holders England remain on course for the semi-finals and they are targeting a comprehensive victory over the USA in Barbados.

USA v England betting tips and predictions

Harry Brook - Over 25.5 player performance points @ 5/6

England started the Super 8 stage with an excellent eight-wicket victory over the West Indies, but their resurgence was cut short by South Africa on Friday.

The Proteas closed out a seven-run win in St Lucia, rallying impressively after an explosive fifth-wicket partnership between Harry Brook and Liam Livingstone had put England in charge.

Brook's dismissal off the first ball of the 20th over was a crucial blow to England's chances and the Yorkshire batter will be determined to make amends in the final Super 8 fixture against the USA.

He hit seven fours in a sparkling innings of 53 off 37 balls against a top-class South Africa attack, despite having had limited time at the crease in this tournament.

Brook made 20 not out in the group stage defeat to Australia at the Kensington Oval, venue for Sunday's game against the USA, and thumped a terrific unbeaten 47 from just 20 deliveries in the vital victory over Namibia.

He should be backed to rack up over 25.5 performance points, with one point awarded per run and 10 per catch. 

As well as his batting prowess, Brook provides England with a safe pair of hands in the deep.

He has taken five catches in England's last three games against Namibia, West Indies and South Africa and also claimed five during last December's five-match T20I series in the Caribbean.

England opening partnership - under 29.5 @ 10/11

England's run-chase against South Africa suffered an early setback when Phil Salt fell to a brilliant Reeza Hendricks catch off the bowling of Kagiso Rabada.

Salt has licence to attack the new ball, but the USA have made early breakthroughs against some top teams at the World Cup, so England's opening partnership runs line of 29.5 looks a little high.

Skipper Jos Buttler and Salt had first-wicket stands of two against Namibia and 12 against Oman in the group stage and USA left-arm paceman Saurabh Netravalkar is having a wonderful tournament.

He dismissed South Africa opener Hendricks with the score at 16 in their first Super 8 game, having got rid of India stars Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for nought and three in their Group A fixture in New York.

Pakistan managed an opening stand of just nine against the USA and England's aggressive approach could be risky early on in Bridgetown.

Andries Gous to score most 6s for USA @ 9/2

Like Netravalkar, USA batter Andries Gous is making a name for himself at the T20 World Cup and he is a big price to hit the most sixes for the underdogs on Sunday.

Gous started the tournament with a bang, slamming three sixes in a 46-ball 65 against Canada, and he added another maximum in his knock of 35 in their shock win over Pakistan.

Promoted to open the batting against South Africa, for whom he played Under-19 international cricket, Gous cracked five sixes in an unbeaten 80 before top-scoring again with 29 in the heavy defeat to the West Indies.

That innings came from just 16 balls and Gous hit one of the USA's three sixes at the Kensington Oval, where he could cause problems for England's bowlers on Sunday.
