England have kept alive their hopes of passing Scotland and making the Super Eight stage with a thumping win over Oman today in Antigua.

Put into bat, Oman folded for just 47, with Shoaib Khan's 11 their only score in double figures. Adil Rashid was the pick of the English bowlers with 4-11, with the pace of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood taking three wickets each.

England, knowing they had a golden chance at boosting their net run rate, showed intent right away. Phil Salt hit the first two balls of their reply for six but was bowled by Bilal Khan from the next delivery. Will Jacks only contributed five before he was out but Jos Buttler clubbed 24 from 8 balls to help complete the eight wicket win. The entire match was over in under two hours.

England's net run rate is now above that of Scotland meaning that, unless there is rain or if Namibia beat England, Scotland will likely need to beat Australia to reach the Super Eight stage. It would be a fool to rule out any of those scenarios given how this World Cup has gone.
