T20 WORLD CUP 2021: MATCH-14: WINDIES VS ENGLAND HIGHLIGHTS

WEST INDIES Vs ENGLAND REVIEW : WI VS ENG

The match between West Indies and England was just exceptional to watch. For the first time, England defeated West Indies in T20 World Cup, and that too was by a large margin. The match was played on a beautiful pitch assisting the bowlers.

England won the toss and elected to field first. England made some interesting choices by leaving Mark Wood and Tom Curran, as both were injured and going through niggles. West Indies left out Roston Chase, who could have been the critical piece to balance the batting lineup.

A WINDIES OFF-DAY :

Windies lost their first wicket on 8 runs, and then after that, the wickets started falling like a pack of cards. West Indies got all out on just 55 runs within 15 overs. The star performer of the innings were the spinners, and most notably, England’s spin wizard, Adil Rashid, destroyed the batting lineup. Also, he registered his career-best figures in T20i’s of 4 wickets in 2.2 overs and conceding only 2 runs. Whereas his spin buddy Moeen Ali was economical and scalped two big wickets. Tymal Mills also made a good comeback and took two wickets.

It was just a cake-walk for England to chase down 55 runs, although they lost four wickets, and one of them was a superb catch by Akeal Hosein. With that, England won the match by 6 wickets and chased down the target in 8.2 overs.


The man of the match was Moeen Ali.
