Crickdose: Three Things We Learned From England’s T20I Clean Sweep Against the Windies


England have managed to blank the Windies 3-0 in the T20I series. After winning the first match convincingly, the English bowlers dismissed the Windies for 45 and 71 in the last two matches, recording crushing wins. So here are the top three things that we learned from England’s T20 clean sweep against the Windies:

1) Wonderful Willey

David Willey has done superbly well with the ball in this series. He managed to trouble the Windies batsmen with his left arm swing. He managed to pick up early wickets consistently, and this meant that the Windies middle order was under tremendous pressure. His abilities tend to be underrated and he is a good bowler.

2) Jordan’s Ability

Chris Jordan is unlikely to be a part of England’s World Cup squad. However, he has once again displayed his ability to surprise with the white ball. He managed to swing the ball really well, accounting for major scalps in the Windies batting line up. Jordan would still be hoping that he is considered for the World Cup squad on the basis of this series.

3) Weak Windies

Windies’ batting has proved to be a major disappointment in this series. They has done superbly well in the ODIs and the Tests, but here they were blown away in two of the three matches. Chris Gayle did not deliver, and Shai Hope failed to live up to his promise. Similarly, Hetmyer did not perform to the best of his abilities. This series has shown that the Windies’ batting is still a work in progress.

To sum up, the Windies have performed poorly during the T20 series. This is their preferred format since they have already won two T20 World Cups. But they did not perform well, folding easily against England. The English would be really happy with their performance.
