USA v Eng - 49th Match, Super 8s, Barbados

Jordan, Rashid and Buttler lead England into the semis

United States 115 (Nitish Kumar 30, Jordan 4-10, Rashid 2-13)
England 117/0 (Buttler 83*, Salt 24)
England won by 10 wickets

England charged into the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup with a ruthless 10-wicket thrashing of the United States.

Chris Jordan took a hat-trick - England's first in men's T20s - as the USA were dismissed for just 115 in Barbados.

And defending champions England chased their target in just 9.4 overs meaning they are guaranteed to finish in the top two because of their excellent net run-rate.

Captain Jos Buttler ended on a brutal 83 not out - a knock which included five sixes in one Harmeet Singh over which cost 31.

Earlier Jordan's hat-trick was part of a run of five wickets in six balls, four taken by the 35-year-old on the island of his birth as he returned figures of 4-10.

England do not yet know when, where or who they will play their semi-final but it will be on Wednesday (Thursday 01:30 BST) in Trinidad or Thursday (15:30 BST) in Guyana.

They could yet top Group 2 if West Indies beat South Africa later on Sunday).

After that the picture will become clearer when Australia meet India on Monday in what is likely to be a must-win fixture for England's Ashes rivals.

England could meet either of those two, Afghanistan or less likely Bangladesh, in the last four as they hunt a third world T20 title in a campaign that almost met a premature end two weeks ago.
