Second Twenty20 international, Barbados:
West Indies 155-5 (18.5 overs) beat England 152-7 (20 overs) by five wickets
West Indies beat England by five wickets in a closely-fought contest to capture the Twenty20 series with one match to spare.
Jos Buttler struck 67 off 43 balls to help England recover from 26-3 to post 152-7 in Barbados.
Chris Gayle (36) and Dwayne Smith (30) set the Windies on course, only for a flurry of wickets to revive England.
But captain Darren Sammy’s unbeaten 30 off nine balls saw the hosts home with seven balls to spare.
It was England’s fifth straight Twenty20 defeat, leaving them at a low ebb just 11 days before their first game in the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
“England were 10-15 runs short. With the ball, you can’t really say they let Gayle get away. He is world-class and he played very sensibly. He had a look and then started smashing sixes. England pulled themselves back with the ball but those 10-15 runs proved the difference.” -BBC
