West Indies win World T20 final with four sixes in four balls

England suffered last-over heartbreak in the final of the World Twenty20 as Carlos Brathwaite clubbed Ben Stokes for four successive sixes to seal an unforgettable West Indies win at Eden Gardens.

England were strong favourites to lift the crown with the Caribbean side needing 19 off the last six balls of the match.

But Brathwaite launched an audacious assault on Ben Stokes, heaving him over the ropes four times in a row to seal a four-wicket success.

In an ill-tempered contest, played out in front of 66,000 rapt Indian fans, West Indies celebrated victory ecstatically, as Stokes sat crumpled in the middle.
