England have ticked the first main box in their pursuit for a semi-final spot, chasing down the West Indies’ target of 181 with eight wickets in hand.

A composed Phil Salt (87 not out off 47 balls) and Johnny Bairstow (48 not out off 26) saw the tourist’s home with the bat in Saintt Lucia, with the Windies’ impressive first innings total not quite enough to hold off the reigning champions.

The dynamic duo peppered seven sixes between them – four of which were smashed on the leg side, while Salt also hit three straight down the ground.

The win now leaves England in good stead to progress through to the semi-finals, now possibly only needing one win against either of South Africa or the USA.

Conversely, the Windies will need some luck in addition to wins over the same two countries, if they are to advance beyond the Super 8 stage.
