England vs West Indies, T20 World Cup, Latest Updates: Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the second Super 12 match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 between England and defending champions West Indies, taking place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Carlos Brathwaite broke England hearts when the two teams faced off in the 2016 T20 World Cup final in Kolkata, eventually guiding the Windies to their second T20 World Cup title, but this time it’s a different story at a different edition of the tournament. Stay tuned as we build up towards the game.
Preview: The Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2021 begins on Saturday, 23 October, and ODI world champions and 2010 T20 world champions England begin their campaign by facing West Indies in the evening game in Dubai.
The Super 12s will feature eight top teams that have automatically qualified along with four teams from the preliminary round that ended on Friday. Australia take on South Africa in the opening game in the afternoon, with the meeting between the two sides that last faced each other in a T20 World Cup match in an epic final five years ago, next.
Defending champions West Indies, who managed to chase down the 156-run target in the 2016 World T20 final thanks to a flurry of sixes off Carlos Brathwaite’s bat, will hope to get off to a strong start as they set their sights on an unprecedented third T20 world title.
England, on the other hand, will look to shrug off the disappointment of missing out on the services of key names like Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes and will hope others, including the out-of-form captain Eoin Morgan himself, can step up and deliver for the side in their absence.
