Saint Lucia: England displayed a dominant performance, defeating West Indies by eight wickets in their T20 World Cup 2024 Super Eight clash at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground.

In the match being played at the Daren Sammy Stadium, England won the toss and decided to field first. Batting first, West Indies posted a competitive total of 180-4 in their allotted 20 overs, buoyed by contributions from their top order.

Despite a strong start, in the second innings West Indian bowlers could not defend their decent total with England’s Phil Salt’s blistering 87 off 47 balls and Jonny Bairstow’s quickfire 48 off 26 balls ensuring England chased down West Indies’ target of 180 runs with 15 balls to spare.

West Indies captain Rovman Powell acknowledged in a post-match interview with Michael Atherton that their batting lineup could have capitalized better, leaving “15-20 runs out there.”

Powell also highlighted missed opportunities in their bowling effort, emphasizing the need for improvement as they look ahead in the tournament.

Earlier in the day, South Africa secured an 18-run victory over the USA in another Group 2 Super Eight encounter. With this win, England moves to the top of Group Two standings, surpassing South Africa on net run rate.

England’s start to the Super Eights with the win against West Indies has put them on the top of the group list. Meanwhile, the USA currently holds the third position in the group standings, with West Indies at the bottom.

The T20 World Cup continues to unfold with thrilling matches as teams vie for a coveted spot in the semi-finals, promising more excitement and intense cricketing action in the days to come.
