West Indies stun England to claim T20 title
Led by an incredible show of power hitting by Carlos Brathwaite, the West Indies snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to lead the regional side to an exciting four-wicket win over England just moments ago.
Brathwaite hit the first four balls of Ben Stokes’ final over for consecutive sixes to lead the Windies to 161 for six in pursuit of England’s total of 155 for nine.
West Indies, who were reduced to 11-3 in pursuit of England’s 155-9, needed 19 off the final to win – and did so with two balls to spare.
Marlon Samuels’ 85 not out kept them in contention before Brathwaite’s match-winning blitz off Stokes.
