ICC T20 World Cup, England overcome West Indies: Records broken
ICC T20 World Cup defending champions West Indies were thrashed by England in the second Super 12 encounter. The Windies were bowled out for 55 at the Dubai International Stadium. Apart from Chris Gayle, no other batter went on to get double digits. England were all around the Windies batters as they suffocated themselves. Here we present the records broken.
How did the match pan out?
West Indies were never in the match from the start and went on to lose wickets at regular intervals. Besides Chris Gayle, nobody else went on to get more than 10. Adil Rashid 4/2 was the chief architect. In response, England got the job done after losing both openers early on. They scored 56/4 in 8.2 overs.
Unwanted records for West Indies

WI now have the joint-second most single digit dismissals for a team in the Men's T20 World Cup match among top-10 Test nations. This is now the third-lowest total in the T20 World Cup.
Unique record for Rashid
As per statistician Umang Pabari, Rashid has registered the second-best economy rate for bowlers in a T20I match with three-plus wickets. 0.85 - Rangana Herath (3.3-2-3-5); 0.85 - Adil Rashid (2.2-0-2-4); 1.00 - Pedro Arrighi (4-2-4-5).
Unwanted numbers for WI
