England resisted a late West Indies surge and held on for a consolation five-run victory in the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) at Kensington Oval on Thursday.

 

Despite surrendering the series to the home side 2-1, the match was a personal triumph for Chris Jordan.

 

The Barbados-born all-rounder smashed Dwayne Bravo for four sixes off the final over of the England innings to lift his team to 165 for six after they had lost six wickets for 40 runs following an opening stand of 98 between Michael Lumb (63) and Alex Hales (38).

 

He then claimed three for 39 and took an outstanding catch on the boundary to dismiss Bravo, a magnificent effort that was enough to earn him the Man of the Match award in very familiar surroundings as West Indies were restricted to 160 for seven.
