Rashid picked 4-2
VICTORY FOR ENGLAND
Buttler remains unbeaten on 24 and finishes it off with a boundary as England wipe off the target in 8.2 overs. That is a resounding win which should also give England’s NRR a big boost. This is a tight group and the NRR boost should help them down the line.
Second for Akeal!
Fourth wicket falls on 39 as Livingstone chips a return catch off a leading edge. Akeal dives full stretch to his left to grab onto a stunner. One of the catches of the tournament for sure.
Moeen Ali is run out
England lose their third on 36, Ali runs down after Buttler dabs one to short third. The batsman never took off though, and the throw goes to the bowler’s end where Ali is caught well short.
Akeal gets Bairstow
The arm ball fools Bairstow. He chips back a simple return catch.
Roy falls in the chase
Ravi Rampaul gets the breakthrough with slower one. Roy chips it straight to Gayle at short midwicket.
WI bowled out for 55!
Ravi Rampaul swings across the line and misses, he’s the last to fall as Rashid finishes with stunning figures of 4-2!
Deepu Narayanan @deeputalks England executed the plans perfectly and it was anything but WI throwing away wkts. ✅ Moeen vs left-handers ✅ Making Simmons hit to the longer side ✅ Hard lengths vs Gayle ✅ Pushing Pooran on the backfoot and nabbing him with a fuller one ✅ Wrist spinner early on vs Russell 03:24 PM • Oct 10, 2021
Two in two for Rashid!
Pollard first holes out to long on and then McCoy hits his first ball as well down to long on. West Indies 49/9!
DUCK FOR RUSSELL
Adil Rashid produces the perfect googly off his very first delivery and castles Andre Russell all ends up. Two ball duck for him. West Indies 44/7 now!
WICKET: Two for Mills
Now it’s Nicholas Pooran. He flashes at a full and wide one from Mills and gets a thick edge back to the keeper. West Indies are 42/6 now!
WICKET: Bravo departs as well
The experiment hasn’t worked as well as they would have wanted to. Dwayne Bravo cuts Chris Jordan, but it goes low to backward point where Bairstow pulls off a sharp, low chance.
Moeen bowls out
He opened the attack and has bowled his quota unchanged to finish with 4-1-17-2. Fantastic stuff!
Gayle bites the dust!
Tymal Mills has the big wicket in the first over of his comeback match. The back of the length ball induces a pull from Gayle but it results in a top edge. Malan pedals back at mid wicket to take a neat catch. West Indies 31/4 in 6.
Bharat Sundaresan @beastieboy07 With no Roston Chase today, looks like Dwayne Bravo is the one nominated to play the Marlon Samuels role in the middle-order, like he did a couple of times against Australia a few months back #T20WorldCup 02:23 PM • Oct 10, 2021
WICKET NO. 3!
Hetmer departs as well, Moeen gets his second. Hetmyer had already picked two boundaries off that Ali over but goes for another one over the infield, but gives a tame catch to mid on.
WICKETS: Openers fall early
Evin Lewis first tries to go after Chris Woakes and falls to a neat catch by Moeen Ali, who runs back from mid off. Ali then gets into the act as the bowler, having Lendl Simmons holing out to deep midwicket. West Indies 9/2 now.

The lead up…
Yes, we all remember the name and the game the last time these two teams met in the T20 WC. Half a decade since, the teams have some superstars still taking part from that night in Kolkata. They’d be donning different roles, of course, and in different conditions. Can West Indies still play their brand of six-first approach in the conditions on offer? How will the pitch play? Will there be dew around? A lot of questions, the answers for which will be found soon. Stay tuned, the toss and teams coming your way soon.
