West Indies cricketer Jason Holder pulled out a record breaking performance when it mattered the most to guide his side West Indies to a 17 run win in the deciding match against England and with that take the five-match T20I series 3-2.

Holder scalped four wickets in four deliveries in the dying moment of the match to complete a double hat-trick. By doing so, he became the first West Indian male cricketer to take a hat-trick in T20Is.

Jason Holder is the first man from the West Indies to attain the milestone, delivering the goods to help the caribbean side beat the visiting England.

During the final over of the game, with England 20 runs to win, Holder dismissed Chris Jordan, Sam Billings, Adil Rashid and Saqib Mahmood off consecutive deliveries to engrave his name in the record books.

With the series ties at 2-2, it was all to play for at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

West Indies won the toss and chose to bat. Brandon King and Kyle Mayers gave their side a flying start. However, the WI lost two quick wickets after the powerplay that shrinked their run rate.

Nicholas Pooran played a brilliant knock, notching up 21 off 24 balls. However, Kieron Pollard and Rovman Powell came up with much-needed momentum for the West Indian innings.

The Pollard-Powell partnership added 74 runs off just 33 balls, both remaining notout to take the hosts to 179 for four in their 20 overs.

In response, England lost both their openers inside the powerplay, however, some fine hitting from James Vince helped them keep level with the required run rate.

Although, West Indies kept getting key wickets to stop the English side from running away with the game. And after Vince was dismissed for 35-ball 55, the hosts took advantage of the situation.

England Batsman Sam Billings displayed a brilliant knock of 41 off just 28 deliveries to keep England in the hunt but to no avail. Jason Holder came up with a final blow with his double hat-trick as West Indies won the series 3-2.
