England beat West Indies by 6 wickets
Right then. That is all we have from this game and Australia and England have opened their points tally in Group 1. On Sunday, 24th October 2021, we have two more clashes lined up as we have an Asian feast planned for you all. Sri Lanka will lock horns against Bangladesh at 2 pm local (10 am GMT) and then, we have the mouth-watering clash between India and Pakistan at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Do join us for both of those games. Cheers!
Eoin Morgan, the victorious skipper of England, says that to start a campaign in such a manner is as great as it gets and he praises his bowling unit for their effort. On being asked about Mills, he says he is delighted for Big T, he has been a bit unfortunate with his game, but you can see some improvements in him. Adds that he has also grown as a fielder and he is glad he could come back and play the way they have seen him play in Sussex. On being asked about Malan being sent down the order, he says they were considering the net run rate, they wanted the players to come out and attack early on, but that did not work out as per their plan.
Kieron Pollard, the captain of West Indies says that says that somedays there's just no explanation and it was just a poor day. Adds that being bundled out for 55 leaves them with no excuses and will look to put this behind. Mentions that even in the warm-up matches, they did not bat well which is what they have to work on and today as well the batters did try to stay positive but didn't come off. Adds that this is international cricket and there's no time to panic. Mentions that they have played a lot of T20 and international cricket and this isn't the first time things have gone wrong for a team and for them it's just about moving on, that's what they will look to do. About Akeal Hosein, he says that Hosein did a fine job today coming in for Fabian Allen and bowling the way he did, this performance will help him calm his nerves on the international arena.
MOEEN ALI IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH! He says it feels good to take a catch like that. Says these moments in the games are a real booster. Mentions that as he has played a lot of cricket recently, he was very confident and is glad he was handed the ball early on. Adds that playing in the final and semi-finals in the Indian T20 League, before coming into the T20 World Cup, has put him on the right track.
Stay tuned for the Presentation.....
Nothing much to write about in regard to West Indies. They did bowl better than they batted in this game, but, the total that they had was never going to be enough to trouble England. They did really well to keep snaring regular wickets and managed to send back 4 of the English batters, but, when you need just 56 to win, the pressure was never felt by the Brits and they romped home. Akeal Hosein had a good outing and his confidence would have shot up as he ended with 2 wickets. Overall though, not the kind of display you expect from the West Indies and they will be hungry to bounce back in their next game.
Finally, England have managed to scale down this tame total. They did have a couple of hiccups and made life difficult for themselves as they lost 4 wickets, but the total never was a humongous one to trouble them and they have won this game quite easily by 6 wickets and 70 balls to spare. After a decent start, Roy lost his wicket and then, three English batters followed him back to the shed rather quickly. Buttler stayed out there and ensured that the scoreboard kept ticking. Morgan joined him out in the middle and the captain and vice-captain ensured that they cross the line without any more hitches.

Kieron Pollard To Jos Buttler
FOUR! That's it! England have won and Jos Buttler hits the winning runs! Pollard bowls this one halfway down the track and Buttler has all the time in the world to get on top of the bounce and pull it into the deep square leg fence. ENGLAND WIN BY 6 WICKETS!

Kieron Pollard To Jos Buttler

Obed McCoy To Eoin Morgan
Well directed short ball, right around the batter's helmet. Eoin Morgan looks to hook it away but it's just a bit too high. The keeper appeals but the umpire isn't interested and no wide called either. Just 6 needed now.

Obed McCoy To Eoin Morgan
FOUR! Just over! McCoy bangs it in short and Morgan is ready to take it on. Morgan pulls it aerially towards deep square leg and its the longer part of the boundary. Hayden Walsh is well inside the boundary and has to trackback and almost reaches it. In the end, the ball flicks his fingers and goes into the fence.

Akeal Hosein To Eoin Morgan
Fired in full, on middle. Morgan pushes it back past the bowler and picks up a single.
The captain, Eoin Morgan walks out!
The TV umpire will just ensure that this catch is a clean one. The soft signal is out from the on-field umpires. The TV umpire has a couple of looks and decides that it is indeed, a clean catch as Akeal Hosein had his fingers underneath the ball. Will remain out.

Akeal Hosein To Liam Livingstone OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Take a bow Akeal Hosein! After much deliberation, the third umpire is satisfied with the catch and England lose their fourth. Flighted ball, around middle and leg and Liam Livingstone plays a checked-drive. Livingstone doesn't quite swing freely and the ball is chipped to the left of the bowler. Akeal Hosein dives to his left at full stretch and plucks it out of thin air. The target is a small one but this hasn't been the prettiest displays of batting from the Brits.

Obed McCoy To Jos Buttler
NO BALL! A loopy slower ball, outside off and dipping. Jos Buttler tries to get funky as he looks to scoop it over the keeper's head but gets undone by the lack of pace. A no ball has been called for overstepping. Free Hit time.

Obed McCoy To Jos Buttler OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Moeen Ali was just a bit too eager to get to the other end and pays the price. Slower ball, on a length and around off. Buttler hops back and dabs it down towards backward point. Ali is halfway down the track and doesn't quite hear Buttler's call of 'No.' Evin Lewis gathers the ball and throws it to the bowler. Obed McCoy does well to whip off the bails. The replay does show the Ali couldn't get back in time and has to depart early.
Liam Livingstone is the new man in!

Obed McCoy To Jos Buttler
Good-length ball, outside off and going further away from the right-hander. Buttler taps it through cover-point and picks up a couple of runs.
Run out? Moeen Ali looked to be struggling. Replays confirm Ali's scare as he is well short of the crease.

Akeal Hosein To Jonny Bairstow OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! The idea of getting Bairstow in early did work for England, as he smacked a couple boundaries in the last over. But he could not end things here. Akeal Hosein gets his first wicket of the game. Loopy ball, on middle and off. Bairstow steps forward and ends up chipping it back to the bowler off the inner half. Akeal Hosein grabs the ball safely.
In walks Moeen Ali.

Chris Gayle is placed there. He leaps and takes a sharp catch. West Indies gets their first wicket and would hope to get a couple more before it gets too late. Can they make inroads in this game?
