The bats of Marlon Samuels and Carlos Brathwaite made history for the West Indies Cricket team as they became the first team to win the World T20 tournament twice.
Sammy won yet another important toss, electing to field first. England got off to the worse possible start when they lost both Hales and Roy with just 8 runs on the board. Captain Eoin Morgan struggled and also succumbed to the spin of Badree, leaving England reeling with the score on 23/3. Joe Root continued his good form in the tournament, top scoring with a magnificent 54 off 36 balls before falling to Brathwaite in the 15th over. Butler looked dangerous during his 36 off 22 balls but also failed to push on. Some lusty hitting by Willey in the death over got England up to a competitive 155/9, although plenty short of what they would’ve hoped for. Brathwaite was the best with ball in hand for the Windies, ending with figures of 3/23 from his 4 overs.
As was the case with England, the West Indies also faltered at the start, losing the key wicket of Gayle and then Charles after just 9 balls into the chase. Samuels played an excellent knock at number three, to guide his side during the chase. England missed plenty of run out opportunities in the field, and also a key drop catch by Billing in the outfield. They fought back well with the ball, as Jordan bowled an excellent 19th over to leave Stokes with 19 runs to defend in the final over. Samuels with 85 off 66 was not on strike, leaving the job up to Brathwaite, who finished it off in style. He hammered Stokes for four consecutive sixes to get his side home with 2 balls still remaining. England did an excellent job of defending the score they set, but it all came to nothing thanks for the heroics of Brathwaite in the final over.
