Ind vs Eng - 2nd semi-final, Guyana

India crush England to reach T20 World Cup final

India 171/7 (Rohit 57, Suryakumar 47, Jordan 3-37)
England 103 (Brook 25, Kuldeep 3-19, Axar 3-23)
India won by 68 runs

England's defence of the T20 World Cup is over after they slumped to a 68-run thrashing by a superb India in the semi-final in Guyana.

Set 172 on a difficult pitch to make Saturday's final, England's batters folded and were dismissed for 103 in 16.4 overs.

Captain Jos Buttler gave them a solid start with 23 but his wicket was the first of four for 20 runs.

Phil Salt fell for five, Jonny Bairstow a three-ball duck and Moeen Ali eight from 10 balls.

When the superb Kuldeep Yadav, who took 3-19, bowled Harry Brook for 25, England were 68-6 and the game done, although there was still time for two dismal run-outs.

Buttler's side were also guilty of allowing India to get to a score above par, although that was largely down to the excellence of Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav.

They overcame a slow surface that also kept low in a fine partnership of 73 from 50 balls that took India to 171-7 - Rohit hitting 57 and Suryakumar 47.

India, who have not won a World Cup for 13 years, will play first-time finalists South Africa - a meeting of the tournament's two unbeaten sides in Barbados.

England will fly home on Friday and are next in action in a three-match Test series against West Indies, starting on 10 July.
