Not without a stumble, but England get to the winning target in 8.2 overs, which gives them a big net-run-rate boost of 3.97. We sign off with a teaser from our end-of-game report:
There was no thriller in the repeat of the 2016 T20 World Cup final as West Indies played low-percentage cricket on a difficult pitch to be bowled out for 55, a target England had to work reasonably hard to overhaul, losing four wickets and taking 8.2 overs. Between them, England spinners Moeen Ali bowled 6.2 overs for 19 runs and six wickets.
That it wasn’t easy for England will make West Indies question their approach: they lost nine of their 10 wickets looking to hit a four or a six, 59 of the 86 balls they faced were dots, and they made no attempt to rebuild after losing early wickets.
Whether West Indies aimed too high and fell too short or they didn’t trust themselves to bat at a run a ball for five or six overs without taking risks is something we will get to know if West Indies are caught batting first on a difficult pitch again in this tournament.
