England win by runs to claim T20 series with one to play England posted thanks to Sam Billings 87 and Joe Root 55 Chris Jordan then tookEngland's best T20 international figures West Indies collapsedto 45 all out West Indies' total is the second-lowest ever in T20 internationals Perhaps England need to bolster their World Cup squad with an exciting pace bowler who was born in Barbados - but his name is Chris Jordan. It meant that England sealed the T20 international series in the Caribbean, with an astounding run victory, their biggest ever victory in the format. This was an astonishing display of ruthlessness from England, who transformed the turmoil of their early innings - they had been 32 for four in the sixth over - into an evisceration of the reigning world champions. Only one international side - the Netherlands against Sri Lanka in - had ever scored fewer runs in a T20 innings. We have learned that a perfect England batting performance in limited overs cricket can see them vault overas they have done on four occasions since
It's a proud moment for us to be playing in a World Cup. We are really excited about that and hopefully we can have a good preparation.
England totally outclassed West Indies in this game. They were clinical, barring those dropped catches, in all aspects of the game and deserved the win. Don't forget to join us then.
Ben Stokes smoked the fgreehot through midwicket for a win. England win by eight wickets. Ben Stokes gets his first boundary off the innings but the ball beat him to the fence. Ohh no England get a freehit. Shannon Gabriel bowls down leg stump, the umpire stretches his arms to signal wide.
With this extra run England touch mark. Shannon Gabriel gets his second wicket of the day as Chris Woaked is caught at midwicket by Fabian Allen, the substitute fielder.
Woakes departs after playing a good knock of 40 runs. Joe Root inches towards his century with this boundary. Gayle pitched it short, allowing Root the time to punch it towards the extra cover region for a four.
Chris Woakes pulls the short ball from Carlos Brathwaite for a four. West Indies bowlers have failed to come up with an alternative after England batsmen tackled their short bowling really well. Not out! Chris Gayle has convinced Jason Holder to take the review as his appeal was turned down by Kumar Dharmasena.
The replays suggests the impact was outside off stump and West Indies lose their review. Chris Gayle has conceded just four runs from his first two overs.
UniverseBoss with both bat and ball. Carlos Brathwaite bowls too short and down leg, the ball was asking for treatment and Joe Root gives one. He bisected the deep fine leg and deep square leg fielder to perfection.
Another short pitch delivery gets the same treatment and produces the same result. Root rocked back in his crease and pulled it through midwicket for a four. Oshane Thomas bowls wide of off stump and Chris Woakes cuts it past point for a four. Joe Root's immaculate timing once again comes to the fore, he plays that all along the ground in mid-off region for a four.
Batting with your feet on the ground is overrated isn't it, root66? Shannon Gabriel goes short once again and Chris Woakes clobbers it over mid-wicket for a four.
He has been too predictable with his line and length. Gorgeous timing from Joe Root makes it look so easy to the eyes. The ball was pitched up in the slot, Root leaned forward and timed it towards sweeper cover for a four.
Chris Woakes, in at No.
The shot also brings up the for England. Jonny Bairstow once again plays a premeditated shot, this time an upper-cut which went straight into the hands of third-man fielder. Shannon Gabriel get West Indies the breakthrough. Shannon Gabriel bowls another short ball to Jonny Bairstow and he was eagerly waiting for it, cleared his front leg and smashed it past mid-wicket fence for a four.
Jonny Bairstow was in two minds about this delivery, unsure whether to duck or pull, but in the end manages to put his bat to ball at the very last moment and it races away to fine leg fence for a four. Lucky runs for him.
