However, Pooran left after the tenth over, and Hetmyer was unable to continue. With just 38 required from 30 balls and seven wickets in hand, West Indies were in a good position.

After some tense moments in the final few overs, Thomas came to the rescue and ended the game for the Windies after the wicket of King caused some concern in the Windies dressing room.
