England bowl West Indies out for 55

West Indies were skittled out for just 55 as England bowlers ran through the entire batting lineup without breaking much of a sweat! 

England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to field against West Indies in the Super 12 game in the T20 World Cup at the Dubai International Stadium. 

England bowlers showed no mercy as West Indies batters were swept away, losing six wickets for 44 runs in the first 10 overs. 

Adil Rashid stole the limelight with four wickets in 14 balls and giving away only 2 runs to help his team dominate the opposition and restrict them to only 55 runs in 14.2 overs.

West Indies collapse in on themselves like a (team of) dying star(s) for their second-lowest T20I score - only Netherlands have done worse in World Cups. England took a wicket in the second over, had West Indies 31 for 4 after the Powerplay, and then claimed the last four wickets for 11 runs in 26 balls. At halfway, the rematch of the 2016 final looks like being something of a walkover.
