Basseterre: West Indies were dismissed for the second lowest ever T20 international total of just 45 as England swept to a 137-win here Friday.
Chasing 183 to win, the World Champion West Indies just avoided the lowest ever total of 39 made by non-Test Netherlands against Sri Lanka in 2014.
Chris Jordan (4/6) wrecked the West Indies top-order batting as England completed a crushing, series-clinching victory.
After Sam Billings (87, 47b, 10×4, 3×6) engineered an excellent recovery to lift the tourists to 182 for six, Jordan was almost unplayable with the home side crashing in just 11.5 overs.
For England this was their largest margin of victory, in terms of runs, in T20s and gives them the series 2-0 with the final match of the tour coming up on Sunday at the same venue.
David Willey (13 n o), who partnered the rampant Billings in adding 68 runs for the sixth wicket after England were put in, started the rout of the Caribbean team with the critical wicket of Chris Gayle before adding opening partner Shai Hope two balls later.
Jordan then accelerated the slide in disposing of Darren Bravo and captain Jason Holder off successive deliveries before adding the scalps of Nicholas Pooran and Fabien Allen. He was however deprived of the chance of a five-wicket haul as his skipper, Eoin Morgan, allowed Adil Rashid and Liam Plunkett to finish off the match, the leg-spinner and fast-medium bowler taking two wickets each.
Brief scores: England 182/6 (Sam Billings 87; Fabian Allen 2/29) bt West Indies 45 (Chris Jordan 4/6) by 137 runs.
