    Time for the presentation ceremony....

  6. !

    Earlier in the game, England opted to bowl first but were a bit wayward with the new ball and could not start as they would have liked. Despite some ungainly shots, Brandon King and Johnson Charles ensured a decent start for the West Indies. King had to walk off the field due to what seemed to be a groin issue, but Nicholas Pooran quickly got into his stride and maintained the momentum. In the middle phase though, Charles and Pooran struggled to find their rhythm as England put a squeeze on. A breezy cameo from the skipper, Rovman Powell, helped the West Indies regain momentum. The loss of Powell, Pooran, and Russell in successive overs prevented the West Indies from maximizing the back end of their innings. Thanks to a late flourish from Sherfane Rutherford, the West Indies managed to reach a total of 180. For England, Adil Rashid was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 1 for 21 from his 4 overs.

  7. !

    As for the West Indies, their juggernaut has come to a halt with their first defeat of the competition. When they reflect on this loss, it will be evident that it was their batting that let them down more than their bowling. When you play as many as 51 dot balls, you end up on the losing side more often than not.Having managed only 43 runs in the last 5 overs of their batting effort, West Indies knew that they had left a few runs out there with the bat. As a result, wickets in the Powerplay were crucial for them. Akeal Hosein was miserly as ever from his end but the runs leaked from the other end. After a wicketless Powerplay, Roston Chase helped the West Indies regain some control with a couple of quiet overs and the wicket of Jos Buttler. However, they could never really stem the flow of runs. Jonny Bairstow put them under pressure, and then Phil Salt hammered the final nails in the coffin, sealing the game for England. Moreover, Nicholas Pooran dropped a tough chance off Phil Salt when he was on 7, and it indeed proved costly.

  8. !

    A statement win from England to kickstart their Super 8 campaign! If there were any doubts about the defending champions looking attheir first couple of games, they have set them aside with this commanding display. England have shown they are here to defend their crown with a dominant performance against a strong West Indies side.In their pursuit of 181 runs, England were off to a steady start. Jos Buttler got a couple of boundaries awayand by doing so, he allowed Phil Salt to settleinto his innings. Through a 67-run opening stand, England had the requisite platform to gun down the total. Sent in at number 3, Moeen Ali batted with intent but could not hang around for long. Salt struggled to find the fence in the middle phase but Jonny Bairstowtook all the pressure off him. He soon took the game by the scruff of the neck as England began to pull away from West Indies. Sensing the opportunity to put the game to bed, Salt took apart Romario Shepherdfor a 30-run over, the most expensive over for a West Indies bowler in T20 World Cups.
