During this, Butler played an innings of 51 runs in 34 balls. Butler was seen in his old style in this match after a long time.

After Butler’s wicket, there was another blow to within one run when Will Jacques was out after scoring just one run. West Indies once again made a comeback in the match, but Salt was in a different mood in this match. He started batting even faster from there.

Player of the Match Salt also got much-needed hitting support from Liam Livingstone between overs 13 and 18. Livingstone hit three sixes and scored 30 runs in just 18 balls at a strike rate of 166.66. Livingstone’s wicket on the fifth ball of the 18th over once again increased the excitement in the match.

Alzarri Joseph conceded only 10 runs in the 19th over of the game and England faced the tough task of scoring 21 runs in the final over to win. Andre Russell came forward to bowl the last over for West Indies. But this ploy of West Indies failed and Brook made England chase the target with one ball remaining.
