England Innings

Over: 20 I Score: 164/4

England lost by 15 runs.

After a few hiccups West Indies managed to hold on to their nerves and defeated England by 15 runs.Pocket sized dynamo, Eion Morgan starred in the losing cause as he top scored with 71 off 36 balls. He was accompanied well by Alex Hales who scored 68 off 51 balls. Ravi Rampaul was the pick of the windies bowlers. He scalped 2 early wickets to dent the English chances straightaway and that proved to be helpful. From there on England were always playing the catch-up game. Young Johnson Charles was awarded the Man of the Match for his impressive 84 off 56 balls.


Over: 10 I Score: 53/3

England's chance of beating the West Indies was getting bleaker as they lost their 3rd wicket in the form of Jonathan Bairstow. Bairstow made 18 off 29 balls.

West Indies Innings

Over: 20 I Score: 179/5

Johnson Charles made 84 off 56 balls to power Westindies to a challenging 179/5. The innings was crucial because after the dismissal of Gayle, it seemed like the West Indian innings was getting derailed.

Captain Stuart Broad was the pick of the England bowlers, picking up 2 wicket for 26 runs.

Over: 10 I Score: 95/0

Chris Gayle and Johnson Charles get the Windies off to a rocketing start. England were forced to try something different and hence they opted for the off-side trap off the bowling of captain Stuat Broad but there was no respite. Gayle continued to pile on the agony. The English bowlers also looked bamboozled by the Windies onslaught and were off target. Steven Finn was the only bowler of some commendability. At the end of the first five overs, the Windies stood at 38 for no loss with Gayle on 23 off 14 balls. Charles was getting bogged down. What was even more frustrsting was he was blocking up Gayle at the non-striker's end. Classical offie Graeme Swann was introduced into the attack. Gayle in the eighth over took a liking for Samit Patel and hit him for three half sixes. Stuart Broad looks to be running short of ideas. Charles finally cashed in once set and took a liking for Swann, accumulating 18 runs from the 9th over. Gayle scored half-century in the tenth over of just 29 balls. At the completion of 10 overs, West Indies are 95 for no loss with Gayle on 51 and Charles Johnson on 39*. Surely they were looking at anything past 200 with all their wickets intact.

Toss Report: West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first against defending Champions England.

.....................................................................................
Preview: Defending champions England would like to overcome the disappointment of recording their lowest-ever Twenty20 total and return to winning ways when they take on a dangerous West Indies in their opening Super Eight match of the ICC World Twenty20 on Thursday.

After starting their campaign on a high with a comprehensive win over minnows Afghanistan, Stuart Broad`s men failed big time against India in their last group match.

Chasing a competitive 171-run target, England were found wanting against the turning ball as spin duo of Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla ripped apart the opposition batting line-up to bundle them out for a paltry 80.

Against India, the only English batsman to show some teeth was wicketkeeper Craig Kieswetter, who scored a 25-ball 35.

Andrew Strauss brought stability to England. Without Andrew Strauss England is back to their under-performance due to a lack of discipline and proper leadership. Politics is costing England dearly. Kevin Peterson is a has-been and should retire.
