Driving the West Indies team to victory, Captain Kieron Pollard scored 39 from 11 balls and Jason Holder made an unbeaten 29.

    Kieron Pollard struck six sixes in one over off Akila Dananjaya and became only the third man to strike six maximums in an international.

    Kieron Pollard won the man of the match.
