T20 World Cup
Group B: England beat Oman by 8 wickets
Antigua, 13 June.
Oman 47 (13.2 overs: Adil Rashid 4-11, Mark Wood 3-12, Jofra Archer 3-12)
England 50/2 (3.1 overs: Jos Buttler 24*)
With Joss Buttler winning the Toss England were able to opt for their preferred Plan A of chasing, in this game that they hope not only to win, but to win convincingly and thus boost their poor NRR. A wicket for Jofra Archer in each of his first two overs was just the start England wanted and it could even have been better as Moeen spilled a straightforward slip catch off Zeeshan Maqsood. No harm done though as Wood accepts a return catch off a leading edge, a wicket with his first delivery. There has been enough pace and bounce on show already from the three England seamers to suggest that this could be an uncomfortable 20 overs for the Omanis. Yes - two in the over for Wood, Prajapati beaten for pace and lobs a pull off the splice to short mid wicket. First ball from Adil Rashid and it's a stumping for Buttler - it is indeed his lucky night as he misses the stumps first time but Kail still not back when the bails are flicked of at the second attempt. In fact replays showing that it was his 3rd attempt. Wood's pace making the batters hop around - 'making room' is the generous way to describe some of the shots on offer. Two more wickets for Rashid - a classic legspinners edge to slip and the stumps rattled by a googly that Fayaz Butt did not read and attempted to cut, before another googly gives him his fourth off an inside edge. Archer back to finish the innings in two deliveries, Shoaib Khan the only batter to reach double figures before fending one off and it lobbing to Buttler. The only question now is how quickly will England chase this down, and how big a boost their NRR will receive. Phil Salt starts 6, 6 off Bilal Khan, two pitched up deliveries launched over the extra cover boundary, but edges a pull onto his stumps from the third. Bounce from the tall Kaleemullah accounts for Will Jacks, down the pitch and slicing a cut high to cover. It's a shot a ball here from England, and most are finding the boundary. Buttler 24 off 8 balls, and this will all be over inside 5 overs! In fact only one ball of the fourth over is required as Bairstow pulls the winning boundary, 8 off 2. That performance from England has made a nonsense of all the talk about Australia manipulating the NRR in their match with Scotland. A pitch with pace and bounce that also offered spin for MOM Adil Rashid - more of the same please will be Buttler's plea to the groundsman for Saturday's game versus Namibia.
T20 World Cup
Group D: Bangladesh beat Netherlands by 25 runs
Saint Vincent, 13 June.
Bangladesh 159/5 (20 overs; Shakib Al Hasan 64*, Tanzid Hasan Tamim 35, Mahmudullah 25; Paul van Meekeren 2-15, Aryan Dutt 2-17, Tim Pringle 1-26)
Netherlands 134/8 (20 overs; Sybrand Engelbrecht 33, Vikram Singh 26, Scott Edwards 25; Rishad Hossain 3-33, Taskin Ahmed 2-30)
Two early wickets for Aryan Dutt has The Netherlands on top in the initial stages. However, Bangladesh have regrouped with Tamim and Shakib looking fluent - 19 coming off the last over of the powerplay. Game on. Wickets for Paul van Meekeren and Tim Pringle keep things evens steven. Huge last seven overs coming up for both (95/4). Strong end by Bangladesh with 64 coming from last seven. 9 boundaries for the experienced Shakib, with the left-hander scoring an unbeaten 64. Excellent spells by Paul van Meekeren and Aryan Dutt. Can the Dutch chase it down? Close call for Michael Levitt in the 3rd over as his despairing dive just saves him from being run out. Doesn't make the most of that narrow escape though as he is caught for 18, followed in the next over by O'Dowd courtesy of a fine c&b by Sakib. Bangladesh on top in the powerplay (36/2). Vikram Singh then clubs back-to-back sixes to bring the crowd alive. Singh clears the ropes again and this is getting very interesting. Commentator curse as Singh is stumped for 26. Halfway in the chase and the Dutch are 74 for 3. Sybrand Englebrecht keeping the Oranje hopes alive with some lusty blows. In the balance (99/3 in 13). It's the hope that kills you,,Two wickets in three balls as Rishad Hossain has Englebrecht caught at point and Bas De Leede stumped. 44 needed off last four. Tough, but not impossible. Chase petering out as wickets fall. Bangladesh easing to victory at 117 for 7 in the 18th over. Tim Pringle swinging but not connecting ..8 dots so far. 33 required off the last over...dot and a 1. Snookers required...Bangladesh win by 25 runs. Dutch kept losing wickets at crucial times.

Group C: West Indies beat New Zealand by 13 runs
San Fernando, 12 June.
West Indies 149/9 (Sherfane Rutherford 68*; Trent Boult 3-16, Tim Southee 2-21, Lockie Ferguson 2-27)
New Zealand 136/9 (20 overs: Glenn Phillips 40, Finn Allen 26; Alzarri Joseph 4-20, Gudakesh Motie 3-25)
An amazing innings by Sherfane Rutherford dragged the Windies from the depths of 58/6 to what proved to be a winning score. His 39 ball innings of 68 not out (2x4, 6x6) saw an explosive end to their innings with 58 runs added in the final five overs, and a final wicket partnership of 37* with Gudakesh Motie whose priceless contribution was 0*. Wickets shared between the New Zealand seamers early on, Trent Boult with the best return before the 'fifth bowler' comprising Phillips, Santner and Mitchell, suffered at the hands of Rutherford. A three wicket burst from left-arm spinner Motie saw New Zealand slump, half their side out for 63 after eleven overs. But for them there was to be no recovery, despite 40 from Glenn Phillips, and when, in the eighteenth over Alzarri Joseph claimed both him, and then Southee next ball, the game was as good as won. With 33 required from the final over Mitchell Santner launched Romario Shepherd's first two deliveries over the ropes, adding another maximum off the fourth, but a 'dot' from the third ball of the over meant that the Windies were already safe and into the Super Eights. For New Zealand the prospects look grim, a win overnight tonight for Afghanistan against Papua New Guinea would seal their fate, and see them eliminated with half their games still to play.
