ICC Champions Trophy, Ahmedabad: West Indies 272-4 lost to England 276-7 by three wickets

Windies looks like champion material

After beating two of the best sides in the tournament World champions Australia and hosts India - West Indies's entry into the semifinals is guaranteed. And after losing to the same two teams, and now having to face West Indies, England is a totally off-colour team with no confidence. England is continuing a poor run in limited-overs games which has seen nine defeats in 12 matches. However, the English captain Andrew Flintoff says they are determined to finish the tournament with a flourish in Ahmedabad.
"We're playing for pride - and pride's a strong thing - so we'll go in there trying to beat the West Indies and go home on a high. West Indies Captain Brian Lara, meanwhile, has dismissed suggestions that they might rest key players, including himself, for the England game. "It's important that we get the best team out there. We don't want to have a hiccup at this time," he explained.
