England vs West Indies Highlights - Super 8s

England Bat

WI Bat

Watch cricket highlights - England vs West Indies from the Super 8s of the 2009 T20 Cricket World Cup

Scoreline: England 161/6 (20 overs) Ravi Bopara 55 (47), Kevin Pietersen 31 (19)
Rain interrupted target for WI - 80 off 9 - get there in 8.2 overs - Sarwan 19, Chanderpaul 17, Bravo 18, Gayle 15

England yet again showed that barring their openers (Wright didn’t come off today) and KP, they have had pretty much nothing propel-the-score worthy in their middle order this WC. What Sarwan and Chanderpaul couldn’t do during thegame vs SA in support of Simmons, finally happened in the knock-out game and so, if you look at T20 cricket as the most consistently aggressive form of cricket, you’d have to believe the more deserving team went through today.
