Sir Richie Richardson, the West Indies team manager said that England can be a force to reckon with during the ICC World Cup 2015. His comments came after England gave West Indies a crushing nine-wicket defeat in their warm up match.

West Indies only managed to score 122 runs after some brilliant bowling by Chris Woakes. Woakes procured awkward bounce and some amount of movement to rattle the West Indian batsmen to pick five wickets, conceding only 19 runs.

England chased down the target with ease, winning by 9 wickets after West Indies managed to get Moeen Ali’s wicket. Ian Bell and James Taylor, however, ensured that their team got over the line without further casualties.
