Here we pick our 5 best sporting performances from the past week:

Carlos Brathwaite

Carlos Brathwaite 2016 World T20 final
Brathwaite starred with bat and ball to take the West Indies to victory

The West Indies were locked in a close contest with England for the ICC World T20 trophy. That fight would go on till the final over, with the Windies in a crunch, needing 19 runs from the final 6 balls of the match.

Marlon Samuels, 85*, had already put in a solid innings, but it appeared not to have been enough. And then came Carlos Brathwaite.

Brathwaite had earlier struck with the ball, taking 3 wickets and playing a large part in helping restrict the England side to 156. That total stll appeared to be a difficult one for the Caribbean side, who looked to be on the verge of losing in the final over.

Deciding to take the match into his own hands, Brathwaite hit four sixes off consecutive deliveries to take the West Indies over the finish line and hand his side the Cup. He will next be seen playing for the Delhi Daredevils in the upcoming Indian Premier League.
