Moeen Ali - Player of the Match: It was always nice to catch one like that, I saw CJ running and thought about leaving it to him as he's so fast and great in the field, but then it was on my side and I stuck my hands out. It gives you confidence, my first over was nice until that six, but yes it does give you confidence. It helps with so many left handers in their team, but I have been bowling alright in the nets, quite confident and as I have been playing cricket, I was not that nervous. The role in that team (CSK) is really good for me, I felt comfortable and involved with both bat and ball, it is great to be playing those big games like the semifinals and finals and then coming to the World Cup.

A dominant win for England but the worst possible start for the defending champions. West Indies will have to go back to the drawing board to figure out how to fix that abysmal batting performance.

England should be pleased with their performance with the ball but still question marks linger upon their batting line-up. However, they go back with the two points and will be pleased with that in what is quite a strong group.

England win by 6 wickets. 

Oct 23, 2021 10:00 PM

Kieron Pollard comes into the attack but the game is already quite done. Buttler cuts the 1st ball through the off-side for 2 runs. He then waits back and pulls the slower delivery through square leg for FOUR to win the match for England. 

England 56/4 after 8.2 overs.

FOUR! Pollard sends down a slower short ball and Buttler gets in position early to swat it through square leg for the winning runs!

Oct 23, 2021 9:56 PM

McCoy restricts the batters to singles off the first 3 balls. He bangs the 4th ball short and Walsh dives across from square leg to get a hand on Morgan's pull shot but it escapes for FOUR. Morgan doesn't take any more chances and plays out the last two balls. 7 runs off the over. Just 6 needed from 72 balls now. 

England 50/4 after 8 overs.

Oct 23, 2021 9:55 PM

FOUR! Morgan goes for the pull against McCoy and almost finds Walsh who does brillianlty to get a hand to it but cannot stop the boundary.

EXCELLENT CATCH from Hosein and there’s a pause in the game as the Umpires refer it to the third umpire. The soft signal is given out and the third umpire finds nothing wrong with it. Eoin Morgan walks out to bat. Both batters grab singles off the next four balls and Morgan blocks out the final delivery of the over. 4 runs and a wicket from the over. 

England 43/4 after 7 overs.

Oct 23, 2021 9:50 PM

WHAT. A. CATCH! Akeal Hosein saw Aiden Markram’s effort in the earlier match and decided to submit his own entry for ‘Catch of the Tournament’. Livingstone gets it off the outside of his bat and Hosein throws himself to his left and takes a brilliant one-handed catch in mid-air, even managing to hold onto the ball and stick the landing.

Obed McCoy comes into the attack. Buttler stabs the 1st ball to the off-side for 2 runs. Moeen Ali gets a little impatient on the 2nd delivery as he sets off for a single and fails to make it back in time resulting in a RUN OUT. Liam Livingstone walks out to bat. McCoy oversteps on the 4th delivery resulting in a free-hit. He sends down a slower delivery for the free-hit which Buttler muscles through mid-wicket for a single. Livingstone gets off the mark with a single. 5 runs and a wicket from the over.  

England 39/3 after 6 overs.

Oct 23, 2021 9:44 PM

RUN OUT! Buttler taps it behind and denies the single but Moeen is halfway down the pitch when he has to turn back. Lewis gets in a strong throw and McCoy does well to gather it and shatter the stumps just before Moeen could make it in. 

Moeen Ali run out (Lewis/Obed McCoy) 3 (4)

CAUGHT & BOWLED! Hosein sends down a drifter and Bairstow who was looking to drive ends up playing it with hard hands and sending a simple return catch to the bowler. Moeen Ali walks out to bat next. He blocks the next two balls then flicks the 4th delivery to the on-side for 2 runs. Both batters pick up singles off the last two balls. 4 runs and a wicket from the over. 

England 34/2 after 5 overs.

Smart reaction catch from Hosein as Bairstow reaches out for the drive but cannot control the shot. Good delivery from Hosein just rushing the Englishman into the shot.
