Jour­ney worth it

Daily Mercury - - DIGEST SPORT -

CRICKET: West Indies skip­per Car­los Brath­waite, 29, made a 13,000km round trip for just one game but it was worth it as he led his team to a 21-run win over Eng­land in the one-off T20 in­ter­na­tional at Durham. Brath­waite, who smashed four sixes off four balls in the fi­nal over of Ben Stokes as the Windies won the World Twenty20 fi­nal last year, did the dam­age with the ball this time, tak­ing 3-20 in 3.3 overs as the home team could only make 155 in re­ply to the visi­tors’ 9-176 at a chilly and rain­swept River­side.
