England have brushed aside oppositions with clinical ease in the T20 World Cup so far. With four wins in four matches and a net run rate well above 3, the Three Lions are virtually already in the semi-finals. And barring a mathematical miracle, top spot in the cutthroat Group 1 is also sealed. But momentum is key in T20 cricket, and England will be careful not to lose any ahead of another ICC knockout challenge.
