Asif Ali Goes Ballistic, Simmons Was Atrocious! -T20 World Cup Analysis - And de Kock Misses Match

The 2021 T20 World Cup continues with a double header as West Indies play South Africa & Pakistan take on New Zealand. The Cricket Podcast get together to cover both matches, providing insight and analysis in reaction to both matches. In the early game West Indies struggled to a score of 140ish, with Lendl Simmons playing one of the worst innings of all time. South Africa had their own problems, of Quinton de Kock's making, but were eventually able to win. We cover both the game and de Kock's refusal to kneel in this episode.

In the later game Pakistan beat New Zealand. Pakistan were on a massive high going into this one, having overcome their arch-rivals India in their first game. New Zealand, meanwhile wanted to start their T20 World Cup with a bang, in a group which is sure to be extremely competitive. 

Asif Ali was the star for Pakistan, as he battered them to victory, after it looked as though they may have let the game slip away.
