Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: England vs West Indies, ICC World Cup 2019, Match 19
Drop: Unlucky Rashid as Woakes puts down a simple catch at the deep to give the dangerman Russell a reprieve early in his innings. Will this prove costly?
Wickets: Against the run of play. Would you believe it, Root turns out to be the partnership breaker. Hetmyer was struggling to pick Adil Rashid but falls at the other end as he hands a catch back to Root. Holder, the next man in, strikes a six off Root but falls soon after as the part-timer picks up another caught&bowled. Meanwhile, Pooran brings up a well-compiled half-century but he has a lot of work to do, along with Andre Russell, if West Indies are to post an imposing total.
Partnership: Finally, somebody's rebuilding. Pooran has found a decent partner in Hetmyer. And they're doing decently - run-a-ball all the way. Yes, more than decent.
Over-rates, what over-rates! England are one short of their usual spinner count, Windies are without even one. ICC, get your bans ready!
Just an FYI: Jason Roy, while chasing a rather innocuous ball in the outfield early on in the innings seems to have pulled his already troubled left hammy. So he's not here on the field and is currently under observation. It's already been a long enough injured list this season, and surely we can do with another ruled-out casualty.
Shai Hope - the true blue companion that he is - doesn't bother hanging around any longer. He was on a blockathon though and gets trapped plumb in front of middle in his quest to defend yet-another -- Shai Hope lbw b Mark Wood 11(30). In short, it has required three balls to turn this around on its head.
So it's been a Gayle template -- 1. Leave. 2. Defend. 3. Smash. 4. Smash some more. 5. Turn circumspect 6. Fall to that very tentativeness - pulling with zero intent. - Gayle c Bairstow b Plunkett 36(41)
Round 2: Jofra vs Gayle: First a juicy pitch up, which Gayle obliges with a smoking drill straight down the ground. Next, the hard good length, which is smacked across the line into cow corner. Hmmm .. this is more than just cricket, surely!
Full, rapid, swing, and the bails WILL fall. Woakes produces an absolute ripper, and there's nothing poor Lewis can do with it.
He may be Gayle, the Universe Boss for a reason, but with Woakes steaming in and with the ball zipping around, here's what he manages -- 0,0,0,0,0,0. Yea, it's been that kind of a start. An over later, it's that moment of the World Cup that the world's been waiting for, the Jofra vs Gayle stuff, and the Boss hasn't woken up, yet. He's been ducking, leaving .. So Archer vs Gayle, round 1 is a lame draw.
So Morgan wins the toss, and ENGLAND opt to BOWL. Also, they're unchanged. Windies meanwhile have made themselves three changes -- Lewis replaces Bravo. Andre Russell comes in for the one hope that Jason Holder had of finishing his overs on time - Ashley Nurse. Gabriel's full fitness and some extra yards of pace is good enough to knock Kemar Roach out as well.
9:30 am local | 2:00 pm IST: It's the age-old stuff. The first real rivalry that cricket actually had outside the Ashes. But much more importantly, it is NOT raining. Clearly someone above finds this worth not-missing. It's called home advantage for a reason!
Okay, it looks damn grey out there in the middle, but such has been the rain scars on Ian Bishop doing the toss that he calls it 'bright and beautiful'. Anyway, as we set it up for you, munch in on Vithushan's what-to expect (which is another revisit on Jofra Archer, the once upon a time Bajan), on our live page's ball-by-ball and on the history through the years.
