England showed themselves to be in ruthless form during the opening stages of their first game in the 2021 T20 World Cup, reducing the West Indies to 42/6 inside nine overs as their potent bowling attack fired. Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali were the first to do the damage, with the latter taking 2-17 off his four overs, before Tymal Mills and Chris Jordan got in on the act. The returning Mills suggested England had been missing him in recent years despite their success, producing pace and accuracy to claim the scalps of Gayle and Pooran.
