I fail to see where England outplayed the West Indies....
England put up a total of just 161 in 20 overs. In four previous games, the WI have passed 161 all but once, against bowling attacks that were arguably more potent than England's. Chances are, if a full 20 overs were played, the Windies would've been able to chase it down.
Unfortunately, we'll never know now....
