Cricket World Cup 2019, ODI 19 of 48 is ended right now. It was an interesting game between England VS West Indies. As we predicted earlier that there were 70% of chances that England will win. Now, results are out and our prediction has proved to be true. An impressive victory for England!
They have beaten West Indies by 8 wickets and 101 balls to spare. Injuries to Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan did not disturb them as much as Joe Root. He played brilliantly and achieved his 2nd century in the ongoing World Cup. He is now the first batsman from England who has scored three centuries in the World Cup.
Mark Wood and Jofra Archer took three wickets each to finish the West Indies team at 212 all out and there were still five overs left behind. Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer kept things very fitted by limiting Jason Holder to score just eight runs in the first five overs. Chris Gayle played well and smashed Archer but in the next over he was sliced down.
Jonny Bairstow made no blunder on the boundary after Gayle missed the delivery by Liam Plunkett.
After two balls, the entire West Indies team was in severe trouble at 55-3. On this moment, Shai Hope was stuck in front of the wicket by Wood. The combination of Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer made 89 runs for the fourth wicket.
In this match, Joe Root was the man of the match for scoring the century. Overall, England played well by following a perfect plan. They were playing confidently and on the other hand, West Indies was under pressure. England bowling side was solid and they played dedicatedly.
They have won three of four group games as they are chasing a spot in the semi-finals.
For West Indies, this loss punches them up after their beating of Pakistan and Australia. The batsmen seem to be not in the right form.
It is the need of the hour to immediately turn their choice of skills into long partnerships. The bowlers should also discover their ability to apply pressure.
No matter what the results are, the entire game was worth watching. All the fans were eager, passionate, and tensed at the same time. Both squads showed a factual spirit to compete with each other in the most impressive manner. West Indies fans are very disappointed after the defeat.
On the other hand, the supporters of England are dancing with joy and they are unable to express their happiness in words. This is a game and no matter how much we try but only one wins, so we have to cherish them.
Next ICC Cricket World Cup is going to take place between Sri Lanka and Australia on 15 June 2019. The second match will be played between South Africa and Afghanistan on the same day.
