The 14th match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is taking place between England and West Indies at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The match between the two cricketing heavyweights is also the second match of the Super 12s stage. Asked to bat first, the Kieron Pollard-led side displayed shocking batting performance and were bundled out for just 55 runs.
Defending the target, the West Indies cricket team looked great with the ball despite a poor batting display. Though it was an easy chase for England but the Eoin Morgan-led side was sloppy with the with and was reduced to 39/4.
Akeal Hosein was the pick of the bowlers for the West Indies and finished with the figures of 2/24. Out of the two-wickets he took, the wicket of Liam Livingstone stole the limelight as he displayed some brilliant fielding performance off his bowling.
It was during the 7th over, when he bowled a delivery full on the pads, that drifted and Liam Livingstone was early into the flick as a result of which the ball caught the leading edge and lobbed to the left of the bowler, who went one-handed and threw himself to his left, grabbing the ball and then ensured that it didn’t hit the turf to complete the catch.
Here’s the video:
West Indies cricket team would’ve been gutted with the way they batted against England Cricket Team. After the top order failed to get going, everyone expected the likes of Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell and Nicholas Pooran to fire and take their team to the respectable total.
However, that wasn’t the case as Adil Rashid bamboozled them with his spinning variations. The leg-spinning sensation castled the big names like Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell and returned with the figures of 4/2.
