World T20 - Final
West Indies won by 4 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)
Played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata (neutral venue)
3 April 2016 - night match (20-over match)

Badree to Roy, OUT, no need for the ump there! The slider goes straight through Roy. What a start for West Indies, and yet Badree barely celebrates. He just walks in to collect the applause like a boss. Another straighter one, pitches on middle, zips through to take leg. Roy was a bit too slow on it again, and played down the wrong line too.

JJ Roy b Badree 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   AD Hales 0* (0b)   S Badree 0.2-0-0-1

Russell to Hales, OUT, he's picked out short fine leg! The only man there! Russell cannot believe it. Hales is livid with himself. This was a half-tracker, down the leg side, begging to be tonked and he simply helped it into the hands of Badree. A few yards either side, or even a little more height on that and England would have had the boundary they wanted to settle nerves

AD Hales c Badree b Russell 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 8/2   JE Root 7* (6b 1x4)   AD Russell 0.5-0-1-1

Badree to Morgan, OUT, the googly! This time it takes the outside edge and Gayle is there to gobble it up. It seems he hadn't picked this one either, judging from the way he had tried to close the bat face and was hoping to work a straight ball around the corner. The outside edge of doom!

EJG Morgan c Gayle b Badree 5 (9m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

England 23/3   JE Root 17* (11b 3x4)   S Badree 2.4-0-8-2

Brathwaite to Buttler, OUT, DJ's pumped up! Not sure his words are for the public, but he has taken a fine catch on the midwicket boundary. It was a back of a length ball that Buttler had picked up right off the middle. Crash, came the sound and the ball hurtled away flat. Right into the hands of the fielder

JC Buttler c Bravo b Brathwaite 36 (29m 22b 1x4 3x6) SR: 163.63

England 84/4   JE Root 42* (29b 5x4)   CR Brathwaite 1.2-0-7-1

Bravo to Stokes, OUT, oh, what happened there?! Whatever did, Bravo and Gayle are 'champion'ing it together. It was perhaps the slower ball bouncer, Stokes was set up for the pull and then realised he would be beaten for pace. Decides to bail out of the shot, except the ball followed his moving away down leg. Leaps off the open face and ends up in point's hands. Dolly of a catch

BA Stokes c Simmons b Bravo 13 (12m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

England 110/5   JE Root 54* (35b 7x4)   DJ Bravo 1.4-0-16-1

Bravo to Ali, OUT, strangled down leg! It's the slower ball again and Bravo's done the star turn for West Indies. Poor Root can only watch from the other end as the shortish delivery is gloved to the wicketkeeper. Out comes the champion dance again, this time Sammy and Bravo are doing it together as the team crowds around them

MM Ali c †Ramdin b Bravo 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 110/6   JE Root 54* (35b 7x4)   DJ Bravo 2-0-16-2

Brathwaite to Root, OUT, big Benn comes down and how! And Root's walking off with a volley at someone. He premeditated a scoop shot, moving outside off, so Brathwaite slowed it up and shortened the length. The batsman was left reaching for the ball up over his face, and without pace, he simply guides it to Benn at short fine leg

JE Root c Benn b Brathwaite 54 (62m 36b 7x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

England 111/7   CJ Jordan 0* (0b)   CR Brathwaite 2.1-0-13-2

Brathwaite to Willey, OUT, he misjudged it at first, but Charles rushes forward and dives as far as he could to pick up the catch! Willey found a short ball and wanted to send it out of the park. But he was perhaps beaten for lack of pace. Hits him high on the bat and therefore ruins his timing

DJ Willey c Charles b Brathwaite 21 (16m 14b 1x4 2x6) SR: 150.00

England 136/8   CJ Jordan 3* (6b)   CR Brathwaite 3.3-0-22-3

Bravo to Plunkett, OUT, he's taken the catch, but it seems like he has hurt his shoulder coming down to hit the turf. Badree was the man tracking down a cue-ender as Plunkett swung wildly. Moved to his right, dives full length, takes it in both hands, but he lands on his right wrist, even a bit of the shoulder. That could be dangerous, Badree's finished his quota today though

LE Plunkett c Badree b Bravo 4 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 142/9   CJ Jordan 4* (8b)   DJ Bravo 3.3-0-34-3
