1.Samuel Badree gets rid of dangerous Jason Roy:
Badree’s arm-ball was too quick for Roy. The leg-spinner gave West Indies the much-needed wicket in the very first over.
2. Root’s half-century bailed England out of trouble:
Joe Root delivered once again when his team was in trouble. His brilliant half-century 54 (36), guided England to a decent target of 155.
3. Root’s double-strike sends an alarm into West Indies dug-out:
Root got rid of Windies openers Johnson Charles and Chris Gayle in the second over of the second innings. 156 seemed to be an easy target for the West Indies, but Root’s double-strike landed a huge blow in the West Indies camp. Windies were reeling at 10 for 2 in 2 overs.
4. Cometh the hour, cometh the man:
Marlon Samuel’s blistering 85 took West Indies close to the finishing line. Samuels, who had a pretty average series in this World T20, showed his brilliance once again in a final.
5. When Brathwaite became heavy-weight for England:
Carlos Brathwaite showed why he got picked by the Delhi Daredevils for a whopping Rs. 4.2 crore in the IPL auctions. The Caribbean all-rounder smoked four sixes of the final over to help West Indies clinch the title for the second time.
