Batting first, the Windies lost Evin Lewis in the second over only and England capitalized on the opportunity by picking up wickets one after another. Adil Rashid dismissed four Windies batters by giving away just 2 runs, while Moeen Ali and Tymal Mills' identical figures of 2/17 also played a crucial role in bowling West Indies out for mere 55 runs. Chris Jordan and Chris Woakes also claimed a scalp each to make sure no bowler remains wicketless in the fest.
