Windies batted first in the last game and saw the return of Chris Gayle. The Universe Boss, after a subdued start, came into his own. He struck 12 sixes in his knock of 135. Contributions from the middle-order took the hosts to a mammoth 360/8 at the halfway stage. It seemed as if Windies would clinch the game with a massive score.

They sailed past the line with 6 wickets and 8 balls to go.
