    … The presentation …

    Earlier in the day, it was a dominant performance from the Windies bowlers. Holder ended with four wickets in total to earn his best bowling figures in the T20s and was well supported by other bowlers as well. Brandon King’s half century was enough as they chased down comfortably and the hosts go 1-0 up against England.

    It was always going to be difficult when you have such a low score in front of you. England bowlers tried their best but nothing happened for them. Only Adil Rashid got a way to break the partnership but that was not enough to get them any success. In the end, it was just a day to forgot and England will look to come back stronger.

    A comprehensive win for West Indies and they go 1-0 up in this 5-match series. Their bowlers did most of the job. The openers, King and Hope did well to play it nicely without anything dramatic. The pitch was showing uneven bounce and both took their time and kept the scoreboard ticking. Shai Hope fell but Pooran didn’t do anything uncharacteristic and Brandon King played a mature knock which helped his team to take the lead. Everyone actually expected West Indies to go bonkers and smash boundaries to chase this down but this is the new Windes who not just show their power but play with more maturity and will show they have this swift side of them as well.
