Morgan given ball to Adil Rashid to bowl ,Rashid to Russell bowled Russell was looking to defend Rashid last ball, but instead left a gap between bat and pad to let the ball through to the wickets.
Apart from Moeen, every England bowler has picked a wicket in his first over. Rashid comes on and cleans up Russell. This is just a straight ball, released it from front of the hand, Russell prods forward and plays for the turn, leaving a gap between bat and pad for the ball to sneak through, crashes into middle stump. Getting worse and worse for West Indies.
West Indies were all out for 55 in 14.2 overs in their T20 World Cup in the first match against England .
All talks about their batting of westindies and the depth of batting in westindies lineup, but it was a disappointing show from the defending champions in Dubai against England.
It is 3rd lowest total in history of T-20 Format after 39 Netherlands vs SL Chittagong in 2014, 44 Netherlands vs SL in Sharjah 2021 and 55 by WI vs England Dubai today.
