outside off, and smacked handsomely, gloriously, over deep midwicket for a maximum! What a way to win it!
A sensational run-chase from West Indies. It is getting as dark as the World Cup final now, but Bravo saw that like a beachball. That's the first Twenty20 international in the Caribbean, and what a marker it's laid down. England might not fancy their chances of those Stanford millions after all ...

Back comes Mitchell Johnson. He went for 20 in his first over, how can he respond?
