England Totally Collapse In An Astonishing Finale To The T20 Cricket World Cup Final

Following a Six Nations Grand Slam and an improbable comeback victory against Germany, English fans have had plenty of reasons to be optimistic in the arena of international sport of late. Sadly, that has now dissipated following a collapse by their cricketers against West Indies in the World Cup T20 final in India.

England began extremely well, posting 155 for nine, and were in an extremely favourable position at the end, with English bowler Ben Stokes having six balls to ensure that West Indies batsman Carlos Brathwaite make fewer than 19 runs. Astonishingly, Brathwaite proceeded to make four consecutive sixes of as many balls to hand West Indies a dramatic victory.

An astonishing achievement by Braithwaite. But which was it down to, Braithwaite brilliance or a Stokes choke?
