West Indies fall just short in thriller against New Zealand

Carlos Brathwaite took West Indies to within five runs of an astonishing triumph over New Zealand in a thrilling World Cup match at Old Trafford – but was caught as he went for the six his side needed to win. Chasing 292 for victory, West Indies had been reduced to 164-7 and needed 33 runs from the final 18 balls to seal an unlikely success.

Brathwaite struck three huge sixes off Matt Henry in the 48th over and top edged a four, taking the required target to eight from 12 balls. He reached a sensational century with six runs needed but, as he went for one last boundary, he was caught by Trent Boult to end West Indies’ innings in a heartbreaking finish.
