BASSETERRE, St Kitts, CMC – West Indies capitulated for the second lowest total in Twenty20 Internationals and their lowest ever, to hand England their biggest ever victory in the format, with a stunning 137-run win here Friday.
Chasing a challenging 183 for victory at Warner Park, the reigning world champions were bundled out for 45 in the 12th over, with Barbados-born seamer Chris Jordan scything through the innings to finish with four wickets for six runs from just 12 balls.
The Windies’ previous lowest in T20s was 60 against Pakistan last year, when a weakened side toured for the historic three-match series.
The three match series is now tied with The Windies and England winning one match each
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)
