Darren Sammy saw the West Indies to victory in their second Twenty20 international against England in Barbados to hand his side a 2-0 series victory with one more to play.
Given 152 to chase, the home side looked as though they might cruise to victory, but clever bowling from Tim Bresnan, James Tredwell and Ravi Bopara slowed down their progress.
However, they could not contend with a mighty finish from Sammy, and England will head in to next week's World Twenty20 with questions to be answered.

England captain Stuart Broad was out injured and Ben Stokes dropped from the side. Moeen Ali and Stephen Parry came in as replacements while Eoin Morgan took over captaincy duties.
England lose Stuart Broad for rest of T20 series in West Indies and he's a doubt for the World T20 later this month http://t.co/vTac8AOICn— Telegraph Sport (@TelegraphSport) March 10, 2014
The West Indies did not risk putting Sunil Narine in danger after he injured his knee in the first T20, bringing in Krishmar Santokie as a replacement.
England won the toss and opted to bat first. They slumped to 26-3, losing Michael Lumb, Ali and Morgan in the first five overs.
But Ashley Giles' side rallied with the arrival of Jos Buttler at the crease. He and Alex Hales led a charmed life as Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Denesh Ramdin all put down catches.
But a partnership of 76 put England back in contention before Hales finally fell to Bravo.
23-year-old Buttler continued to score at a high rate, scoring 67 from 43 balls before eventually skying an edge to Darren Sammy at deep point.
Luke Wright and Tim Bresnan took England to a working total of 152-7 off the 20 overs.
In response, Dwayne Smith and Chris Gayle started at a blistering rate reaching 48 from just 26 balls before Smith holed out to Bresnan.
Gayle went to the bowling of Ravi Bopara in the 11th over, finally succumbing to a clever slower ball.
England then turned the screw and looked as though they might have enough to level the series as the West Indies' scoring rate slowed.
However, they had reckoned without Sammy. A stunning 30 runs from just nine balls saw England beaten with seven balls remaining.
The likes of Sammy and Gayle give the West Indies a genuine chance going into next week's tournament in Bangladesh.
