Windies won the toss and asked England to bat first. After putting into bat first, England had a heavy batting collapse and resulted in all-out for just 113 runs. The hosts chased it comfortably for the loss of three wickets in the 13th over itself.

In the small run chase, Chris Gayle was the star with his blistering 77 runs from 27 balls that included five fours and nine maximums. As the left-handed batsman announced his retirement plans from the format, this innings is expected to be his last one in the home soil in this format.

He eventually reached his fifty in 19 balls and became the fastest West Indian to reach the milestone, surpassing Darren Sammy’s benchmark by a delivery.
