England survive late scare
England survived a late onslaught from the tail-end batsmen of West Indies to win a thrilling third and final Twenty20 by five runs in Barbados on Thursday.
The home team had a chance to make it a 3-0 victory in the series but captain Darren Sammy was unable to hit the six his side needed off the final ball at the Kensington Oval. “It was a fantastic game of cricket,” said England captain Eoin Morgan. “There are a lot of positives for us looking ahead.”
The tourists batted first and compiled a solid 165 for six built around a sparkling 63 from opener Michael Lumb.
