Scorecard

Carlos Brathwaite hit the first four balls of the final over for six as West Indies stunned England to win the World Twenty20.

West Indies, who were 11-3 in pursuit of England's 155-9, needed 19 off the final over to win and did it in style.

Marlon Samuels' 85 not out kept them in contention before Brathwaite's match-winning blitz off Ben Stokes.

Joe Root scored 54 for England but nothing could stop the Windies joining their women as World T20 champions.

In the process, the West Indies also became the first two-time winners of the men's World Twenty20.
