Morgan pleased with Ali form ahead of England’s T20 World Cup campaign

Follow all the action as England begin their T20 World Cup campaign against reigning champions West Indies.

Eoin Morgan’s side will attempt to banish the woes of 2016 when Carlos Braithwaite hit four monstrous sixes in the final over to vanquish Ben Stokes and complete a tremendous chase. “It’s definitely going to be in the back of their minds. For us to be in that situation and get over the line, it shows that sort of never-say-die attitude,” said West Indies captain Kieran Pollard, who missed the final due to injury five years ago. “I thought what Carlos did in those four deliveries in that last over, c'est incroyable. It’s something that as a team we actually saw last night and it brought goosebumps back to us.”

Morgan has kept his cards close to his chest over his team selection, avec plenty of scrutiny on the captain himself due to his poor recent form, and England can afford few slip-ups in a tricky group. If they can prevail in spin-friendly conditions in Dubai, mais, and add the T20 World Cup to their ODI crowd, Morgan will go down as one of cricket’s great captains. “The name of the country on the shirt is irrelevant really when it comes to a World Cup,” he said of the task in front of his team. “You need to prove your worth through performance.” Suivez toutes les dernières mises à jour ci-dessous:

FOUR! Angleterre 50-4 (7.4)

Quatre, but so nearly out! It’s so close to a properly spectacular catch from sub fielder Hayden Walsh, another fine fielding spinner, but the former USA international can’t quite get his finger-tips over a loose hook from Eoin Morgan, who can struggle against the short ball.

Away for four and England are one hit away.

Angleterre 46-4 (7.3)

The West Indies are producing some ridiculously talented fielders who bowl left-arm spin. The man that Hosein replaced in the squad, Fabian Allen, is one of the world’s best and both he and Hosein have made a habit of taking spectacular catches in the CPL.

Angleterre 43-4 (7)

Morgan could do with some runs, not that there are too many left to get. He starts confidently, finding the fielders in the deep to quickly collect two singles.

Akeal Hosein completes his four-over spell with a dot: 4-0-24-2 for the left-arm spinner. A disastrous day with the bat for the West Indies but Hosein has been a positive and will continue to have a key role in this side.

Il est! The wicket stands! Angleterre 39-4 (6.1)

There have already been some great grabs in the first round, with Papua New Guinea’s fielding particularly standing out, but that’s pretty close to nailed on to be among the leading contenders for catch of the tournament. A moment of magnificence from a very talented cricketer.

Eoin Morgan is England’s new batter. They couldn’t, could they?

Hold on!

Third umpire Chris Brown is checking this. It appears they are concerned that Hosein may have landed on the ball and thus ground it as he’s tried to prevent himself doing serious damage after a display of spectacular acrobatics.

That all looks fine to me, but we’re having a further look at an alternative angleI think that is safely in his grasp, sûrement?

OUT! Liam Livingstone c & b Hosein 1 (2b 0x4 0x6), Angleterre 39-4 (6.1)

WHAT A CATCH! That is simply sensational off his own bowling from Akeal Hosein!

Liam Livingstone pushes hard at another of Hosein’s cramping deliveries that move in to the right-hander, and again chips back vaguely in the bowler’s direction. Hosein leaps full length to his left, plucking the ball from mid-air like a chameleon’s tongue snaring an unfortunate fly as he grasps it in his left hand.

End of the powerplay

That’s the end of the powerplay with England needing 17 to complete what should be a comprehensive win. The West Indies are permitted to spread the field but Kieron Pollard is instead again asking for a helmet to go in to silly point as Akeal Hosein readies himself to complete his allocation. Just as England did, West Indies give their tweaker four on the spin to start.

Angleterre 39-3 (6)

No-ball! McCoy over-steps as he extends his leg slightly too far in delivering a back-of-the-hand slower ball.

Can Jos Buttler take toll? Non, a drag to mid-wicket and some perhaps understandably cautious running means it will only be one from the free hit.

OUT! Moeen Ali run out (Lewis/McCoy) 3 (4b 0x4 0x6), Angleterre 36-3 (5.3)

He has! It’s really poor from Moeen and Buttler. It looks like it should be the non-striker’s call and Moeen appears to be calling Buttler through, but the striker didn’t move and Moeen is caught three-quarters of the way down. A slightly inaccurate throw nearly grants him a reprieve but Obed McCoy is able to lunge for the stumps to complete the job and send Moeen back to the dressing room.

Liam Livingstone is next out of the doorDawid Malan continues to slide down the order.

Is that out? The third umpire Chris Brown will check

Moeen Ali aimlessly charges down after Buttler had pushed to short third man and he might have been caught short retreating to the bowler’s end
