West Indies win second T20 to take series
Published on March 12, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- West Indies captain Darren Sammy hit a blazing 30 not out off just nine balls to pilot the world champions team to a five-wicket win over England in the second T20 International on Tuesday.

Sammy’s power-hitting came as the Windies asking rate climbed to over 10 runs per over in the final stages. They reached 155-5 off 18.5 overs in reply to England’s 152-7 off 20 overs at Kensington Oval.

The Man of the Match award went to left-arm seamer Krishmar Santokie, who had career-best figures of 4-0-21-4 – with a combination of slower ball and cutters.

The victory gave the West Indies an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
