NEW DELHI: It was on this day in 2016 when West Indies defeated England in a thrilling summit clash by four wickets to win the ICC T20 World Cup at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Chasing 156, Windies required 19 runs off last over. Carlos Brathwaite smashed four consecutive sixes in Ben Stokes’ over and helped his team clinch their second T20 World Cup title, having first won in 2012. He scored 34 unbeaten off 10 balls — an innings that still remains etched in the memory of cricket fans.
As Brathwaite hit the fourth six off against Stokes in the final over and West Indies registered a win, former Windies pacer Ian Bishop, who was doing commentary, famously remarked — “Remember the name, Carlos Brathwaite”.
