Adil Rashid stars as England thrash West Indies in T20 World Cup – Latest Cricket News

West Indies batsmen were caught in a web of spins woven by spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid as England thrashed defending champions by six wickets in the opening match of the T20 World Cup Super 12 stage on Saturday. The match was being told between the West Indies batsmen and the England bowlers, but the Caribbean batsmen who made a splash in T20 leagues across the world were disappointed. The entire team was bundled out for 55 runs within 15 overs. West Indies batsmen kept on losing wickets in an attempt to play big shots. They forgot the basic principle of cricket that when hitting fours and sixes is difficult, it is necessary to rotate the strike.

England bowlers performed very disciplined. West Indies team got out on their second lowest T20I score. His minimum T20 score is 45 runs, which was made against England in 2019 itself. This is the third lowest score in the T20 World Cup after 39 and 44 (both Netherlands). In reply, England chased down the target in 8.2 overs but lost four wickets. Jason Roy (11), Jonny Bairstow (9), Moeen Ali (three) and Liam Livingstone (one) were dismissed cheaply. Left-arm spinner Akil Hossain took two wickets for 24 runs for the West Indies.

Jos Buttler (24 not out) and captain Eoin Morgan (seven not out) took England to victory. A win like this makes a lot of sense when it comes to net run rate in the last leg of the tournament. Earlier, Rashid took middle order and lower order wickets for just two runs in 14 balls. Earlier, Moeen won the toss and proved the decision of the bowling captain Morgan right. He conceded just 17 runs in four overs. For West Indies, only Chris Gayle (13) could reach double digits. Lendl Simmons and Shimron Hetmyer tried to open their hands, but Moeen sent both of them to the pavilion. Chris Woakes from the other end bowled an economical spell and dismissed Evin Lewis (six).
