West Indies crumbled to the second lowest total in Twenty20 International history and their lowest ever as England pulled off a stunning 137-run victory – their largest-ever margin of victory in the format here Tuesday.
Asked to chase a challenging 183 for victory after Sam Billings top-scored with a superb 87, West Indies were bundled out spectacularly for 45 in the 12th over, with Barbados-born seamer Chris Jordan snatching four wickets for six runs.
Shimron Hetmyer and all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite, both scored 10 to be the only ones in double figures as West Indies also conceded the series, with their second successive defeat.
Seamers Liam Plunkett (2-8) and David Willey (2-18), along with leg-spinner Adil Rashid (2-12) all finished with two wickets each.
The Windies’ previous lowest in T20s was 60 against Pakistan last year, when a weakened side toured for the historic three-match series.
ENGLAND 182 for six off 20 overs (Sam Billings 87, Joe Root 55; Fabian Allen 2-29)
WEST INDIES 45 off 11.5 overs (Chris Jordan 4-6)
