West Indies Subject England To Another Defeat

West Indies 326 for 6 (Hope 109*, Athanaze 66) beat England 325 (Brook 71) by four wickets

England’s poor run of form continues post-World Cup with another defeat at the hands of West Indies in Antigua. After setting a decent total of 325. With Brook top scoring with 71, and Crawley and Salt bagging 48 and 45 respectively. The Windies battled hard scoring over 100 runs in the last 10 overs reaching the total with 7 balls to spare.

Man of The Match Shai Hope, stepped up for the Windies with an unbeaten knock of 109 off 85 balls to steer his side to victory. Other stand-out players include Alick Athanaze who scored 66 off 65 balls and Romario Shepard who came in late to rescue the game with a standout 48 off 28 balls. The result leaves the Windies 1-0 up with 2 matches to play in Bridgetown and Antigua.

For England, there is yet more wound-licking to be done. Though this XI featured just six players who were on deck for the dismal World Cup campaign. The manner of this defeat feels on par with some of those out in India. Worst of all, it has been inflicted by a team who were not even good enough to get there in the first place.
