England (@EnglandCricket) take on @WestIndies for the ICC World Twenty20 crown on Sunday and Twitter will be at the heart of the action.

Jason Roy (@JasonRoy20) top scored with 78 in Wednesday’s last-four victory over India (@BCCI) to reach the final of the @ICC competition. But it is Joe Root (@root66) who has dominated @EnglandCricket Twitter conversation in the tournament so far:


Captain Eoin Morgan (@Eoin16) will lead the team at Eden Gardens and also leads the way in number of followers among the squad, with almost half a million followers.

Every member of England’s 15-man squad is on Twitter and have been Tweeting and posting pictures and video throughout the tournament.

England even unveiled a special flag containing messages of support from fans using #WeAreEnglandCricket.

Additionally, England are giving one Twitter follower the chance to be the focus of their profile header image on the day of the final itself.

Twitter will also give a fan the final word once the tournament is over as the victorious skipper will answer a selected question from the #AskCaptain hashtag.

England’s victory over South Africa was their most-Tweeted about moment of the tournament so far with 4.3K Tweets per Minute. But could victory over India top it? The wait is almost over..
