England set a 156 runs target for West Indies -twitter explodes

  • England are seriously stunned by the terrible beginning of their innings they lost three wickets. West Indies winning the toss elected to field first. Leg-spinner Samuel Badree using the moist of the pitch bowled Jason Roy in the second delivery of the match. Russell picked up the wicket of the second opener Alex Hales. Captain Eoin Morgan was also beaten by Badree.

    However, England made a good recovery with Joe Root showed his class while Jose Buttler contributed a brisk 36 runs before Carlos Brathwaite broke the 61 runs partnership. Root scored his fifty off 33 balls. But after Buttler’s departure, English wickets fall like rains. Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Joe Root. Dwayne Bravo’s deceptive slow bowling foxed Stokes and Ali while Root’s heroic 54 came to an end as Carlos Brathwaite got him. Brathwaite’s superb bowling even ended the  little cameo of David Willey, who scored 21.

    England finally scored 155 losing nine wickets. But, considering wicket and pitch this 156 run target will not be easy for West Indies.
