2010 World T-20 champions England have the might of Joe Root, who is always capable of a high-score, and Jos Buttler to rely on to score a decent total. In fact, Joss is one of only 6 players in the tournament so far who has an average of above 50 runs, with a run tally over 100 runs.
However, one of the other men to be part of that 6 is Chris Gayle. He’s a man that needs no introductions, and is the reason why the West Indies can blitz an opponent with his aggressive style of batting. His statistics speak for themselves. His 100 not out against England is the highest of any batsman against a Test-playing team in the 2016 World T20. He is the only to score two World T-20 hundreds and he boasts a strike rate of 194.64 runs per 100 balls.
With all that in mind, England’s bowlers will have to slow him down, and the emphasis is on Chris Jordan ‘The Duke of Yorkers’ to live up to his moniker and get the West Indies’ star man out. It’s going to be a fascinating battle.
In England’s semifinal match-up against New Zealand, the Three Lions shocked the Kiwis with a 7-wicket win, thanks in no small part to an excellent batting display from Jason Roy who struck a career best 78. New Zealand had set England a total 154 for win, which they managed with nearly 3 overs to spare.
The West Indies broke India’s hearts, and shocked the world, by defeating the favorites in the other semifinal by 7-wickets with two balls to spare in the game.Lendl Simmons was the hero, scoring an unbeaten 82 in the nail-biting contest that few thought they would win.
