T20 World Cup 2021: The England cricket team put on a cracking display recently against Sri Lanka. They completely dominated the whole match and won one-sidedly.

Sri Lanka had gone on to win the toss and they invited England to bat first in the t20 match. But everything went according to the plans for the Lankans. It was so because the English team lost three wickets in the power play itself.

It was a shocking batting display from Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan. Moreover, Jonny Bairstow had gone out on a golden duck in the t20 match. All three were gone for cheap as England were down to 35/3.

But Eoin Morgan and Jos Butler went on to play some beautiful cricket and the t20 game started changing. The duo went on to put up a 100+ runs partnership together on a tough Sharjah wicket.

As a result of that, England put up a total score of 163 runs in the twenty overs. Moreover, Jos Butler went on to hit his first t20 international century. He did so by lodging a six on the last ball of the first innings.

But Sri Lanka never showed up in response to that beautiful t20 batting by Eoin Morgan and Jos Butler. They had a similar start like England to their innings. Sri Lanka lost three wickets inside the power play itself.

England bowlers were on point with their bowling against Sri Lanka in the t20 game. Moreover, they restricted the South Asian team to just 137 runs. In the end, England won the match by 26 runs and Jos Butler was awarded as Player of the match.

However, Kevin Pietersen was among the lakhs of English fans who saw the joy in the win against Sri Lanka. He took to social media to express his opinion after the huge win in the t20 World Cup.

Kevin Pietersen feels that England are at a stage where only Pakistan and Afghanistan can beat them. Moreover, he also wrote that the two South Asian teams can only beat England on a spinning Sharjah track.

However, he is right with his predictions since England are looking like a champion team. They are a complete t20 team with all the boxes ticked.

And it also looks like England will finish unbeaten in their group stage. However, they will most probably face New Zealand or Afghanistan in the semi-finals of the t20 World Cup.

England will be facing South Africa in their next t20 game on Saturday. Moreover, it will be a cracking game since South Africa are also doing good in the World Cup.
