    Another fine performance from captain crap.

    Brathwaite 6 6 6 6 in that final over - it was going well until then. But you can't complain when a player can do that - and the West Indies have so many power hitters who can.

    Who picked Stokes to bowl it?
    Who contributed 5 runs to add to his other **** alls?
    Can't understand why no matter how bad he is, people like you keep defending him.

    West Indies beat England by four wickets to win the World T20 in Kolkata
    West Indies 161 for 6 (Samuels 85*, Brathwaite 34*, Willey 3-20) - England 155 for 9 (Root 54, Brathwaite 3-23, Bravo 3-37)

    Wow - an amazing final to end a really good tournament
    Feel sorry for Stokes - the first ball of that over was not great, but the other deliveries were more or less there

    In terms of the captain - I think he captained well (and I would have bowled Stokes in the last over) - the question for me is does he contribute enough with the bat? Will he be worth his place in the side in 2 years time? If we don't pick him do we want to saddle Joe Root with the captaincy?

    KP, Broad, Bopara - three candidates to replace him. Leave Root as is.

    England have reached a T20 final and their 50 over game has improved dramatically under Morgan. The biggest factors have been identifying and selecting the players best suited to ODI cricket and allowing them to play freely and without fear. Morgan has been very central to this. His personal form has taken a dip, but when he is in form he is a clean hitter of the ball, who can be devastating. I'm not sure there is a player in the wings who could come in and deliver without question. The selectors certainly won't go back to picking players in their 30s who have been discarded for various reasons - not least because ODI cricket is a young man's game. Players need to be dynamic in the field as well as worth their place with bat and/or ball.
