- “Remember the name” – Ian Bishop during the 2016 20 20 World Cup Final
Imagine this, 19 runs were needed of the final over and it was the 20-20 world cup at stake. How grand will that stage be? That’s exactly what happened during the final of the 2016 20-20 world cup. It was England and West Indies who were fighting for the coveted title in international cricket. The equation came down to 19 needed off the last over with Ben Stokes given the responsibility to defend the runs.
What followed after was one of the most incredible finishes in T20 cricket. Carlos Brathwaite smashed four back-to-back sixes, sending the entire stadium into a frenzy. What made the entire moment even more memorable were the iconic lines by Ian Bishop, who blurted out ‘Carlos Brathwaite Remember the Name’ as West Indies celebrated their second title victory.
