West Indies beat England by four wickets at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens on Sunday to lift their second World T20 title.

Needing 19 runs off the last over, it appeared as if England held the upper hand, but Carlos Brathwaite hit four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to seal the win for the Windies.

Needless to say, Twitter was quick to comment on the youngster’s brilliant finish to the game.

There was some sympathy, as well as some criticism, for Brathwaite’s victim, Stokes, who was consoled by captain Eoin Morgan after the loss.
