World Cup 2019 England needs 213 runs to beat West Indies

England restricted West Indies on a total of 212 runs in the World Cup match at the Rose Bowl stadium on Friday.

After put into bat, West Indies seemed to be struggling from the begining of the game and suffered a loss in the third over as Evin Lewis walked to the pavillian.

Chris Gayle with Shai Hope played handsomely and added 50 runs for the second wicket.

England skipper Eoin Morgan said, “The wicket’s been uncover, a lot of rain around, a bit of moisture. The World Cup is all about turning up on the day and adapting to conditions. West Indies proved in home conditions that they are a very strong side.”

England are unchanged from the Bangladesh game.

West Indies captain Jason Holder said he would also have bowled first. “We’re up for the occasion, we all know what’s at stake.”

Evin Lewis, Andre Russell and Shannon Gabriel are the three changes for West Indies. Spinner Ashley Nurse has been left out for an extra pacer.
