England has bowled out West Indies on 55 runs in their first match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
According to the details, Chris Gayle turned out to be the highest run scorer in the West Indies side with 13 runs. Moreover, Gayle is the only Windies player to enter the double figures.
This is the third lowest total in the history of ICC T20 World Cup after Netherland being bowled out twice on 39 and 44 in 2021 and 2021 respectively. Furthermore, this is the second lowest total for the defending champions in T20 cricket.
After opting to field, England struck early as West Indies lost four wickets inside the powerplay for only 31 runs. However, Adil Rashid stole the limelight with four wickets in 14 balls and giving away only 2 runs to help his team dominate the opposition and restrict them to only 55 runs in 14.2 overs.
England openers Jason Roy and Jos Buttler will be eager to chase down the target, keeping in mind the net run-rate which could become a factor later in the tournament.
England: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Tymal Mills.
West Indies: Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Akeal Hosein, Ravi Rampaul, Obed McCoy.
