England Triumph As Windies Crash

England Triumph As Windies Crash

England won the Twenty20 series after humbling the West Indies by a record 137 runs in the second cricket match on Friday.

Then Jordan's remarkable 4 for 6 off two overs meant West Indies were never in the contest and they fell for the second-lowest T20I total, behind Netherlands' 39 against Sri Lanka at the World T20 in 2014.

England had recovered from 32 for four to make 182 for six thanks to a 55 from Joe Root and an excellent 87 from 47 balls by Sam Billings.

Sam Billings struck his highest global score as England set the West Indies a target of 183 to win the second Twenty20 in St Kitts. The swashbuckling right-hander was unlucky to lose his wicket on the final delivery of the innings to T20I debutant Obed McCoy (1-44) after smashing him for 22 runs in the over.

Windies will now look to play for pride in the final T20I of the series.

Seamers Liam Plunkett (2-8) and David Willey (2-18), along with leg-spinner Adil Rashid (2-12) all finished with two wickets each as West Indies conceded the three-match series, following their four-wicket defeat in last Tuesday's opener in St Lucia. Shimron Hetmyer and Carlos Brathwaite were the only West Indian batsmen to reach double figures with 10 runs apiece.

West Indies lost Ashley Nurse to a damaged finger in the warm-up, but his replacement, Devendra Bishoo, took a great diving catch at backward point to remove Jonny Bairstow - prompting a Sheldon Cottrell salute.

Chris Jordan took four wickets for six runs to rip the heart out of the home side. The two combined for 82 until Root was run out on 55 in the 16th over.

After that captain, Eoin Morgan brought in Jordan into the attack who wreaked havoc on the Windies batsman.

Darren Bravo was his first victim, feeling for one that seamed off the surface and flicked the edge, before Jason Holder was sent packing for a golden duck, lbw without a prayer. Nicholas Pooran was only good enough to nick it when Jordan fizzed one down in the channel outside off and Allen was undone by a little extra carry as the steered to Root at slip.

At 22 for six, the signs of an England rout were clear but Brathwaite seemed to hint at resistance when he cleared the ropes at long on with Rashid in the seventh over.
