Fittingly it is Billings who takes the final catch, watching it carefully over his shoulder to seal the series for the tourists. England have annihilated the Windies by 137 runs in St Kitts to seal the T20I series with a match to spare. Such a margin would have been unthinkable when the tourists were wobbling at 32/4 inside the powerplay, with Fabian Allen picking up two important early scalps. However Joe Root and Sam Billings rescued England with a partnership of 82 runs, with the latter making a career best 87 thanks to some late carnage. The hosts really lost the momentum in the second half of their fielding display as some sloppiness creeped into their game and that carried over into the batting effort. Wickets began tumbling and never stopped with Chris Jordan running through the middle order like a hot knife through butter, getting the ball to nip around at high pace. Just two men made it into double figures for the Windies, both of them making only 10, as they crumbled to the second lowest T20I score of 45 all out. The series and this long tour comes to an end on Sunday at this same venue.
