Match highlights of England getting their ICC Men’s T20 Word Cup 2022 campaign off to a strong start with a five-wicket win over Afghanistan.

Ireland shock England | Digital Daily: Episode 20 | T20WC 2022

The low point of England’s campaign came at a damp MCG. Andrew Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker took advantage of some sub-standard bowling in the first half of Ireland’s innings, but England would still have backed themselves at the halfway stage.

But, with rain forecast, England were tentative in their chase and never got ahead of the required rate.

Some big hits from Moeen Ali almost rescued the situation, but the rain arrived before the left-hander had faced many deliveries, leaving England narrowly behind on DLS and suffering a famous loss to their neighbours.

A washout left England in a tricky spot in Group 1.

To share the points with Australia after losing to Ireland meant that Buttler and his team couldn’t afford another loss.

Neither team were happy with the no-result outcome, but the game had threatened to be a win-or-bust fixture for both teams and sharing the points at least meant they both still had stakes in the competition.

England see off New Zealand and keep semi-final hopes alive | Match Highlights | T20WC 2022

Match highlights of England holding off New Zealand for a 20-run victory that kept their hopes of making the semi-finals of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 alive.

Those dropped points had left England in a position where they faced effectively four must-win matches in succession to win the World Cup.

A meeting with an in-form and group-leading New Zealand was a tricky test, but an opening stand of 81 runs got England off to a flier, and a total of 179/6 was always going to be difficult to chase down.

There were some nerves during the middle overs when Glenn Phillips got going, but some tight bowling at a crucial point left New Zealand with too much to do.
