What is the moment that shows the T20 being played at its peak? Carlos Brathwaite, of course, hitting four sixes to win the 2016 final for the West Indies, with that awesome yelling commentary from Ian Bishop upon death. England had their moment in 2010, beating Australia in Bridgetown, with Craig Kieswetter and Ryan Sidebottom with. Classic moments? What if Stuart Broad got the Gary Sobers-Malcolm Nash processing of Yuvraj Singh in 2007? Or the 2009 final, when Mohammed Amir Sri Lanka got off to a start from which it never recovered by taking a wicket for the loss of a single point in the opening of the Lord’s?
