Chris Jordan came up with something very special for England.

And it wasn’t his early dismissal of West Indies run machine Chris Gayle.

Sussex star Jordan had Gayle caught for 15 at short third man as England won the first Twenty20 of the three-match series in St Lucia.

But he beat even that with a stunning caught and bowled to get rid of the dangerous Darren Bravo for 28.

Jordan fooled the batsman with a slower ball but the leading edge looked to be dropping safe on the other side of the strip until Jordan, in his follow through, had the agility to turn through 90 degrees, dive and take the catch one-handed just above the ground.

The Sussex man finished with 2-16 off three overs and held a second catch running in from the long-off boundary as the hosts made 160-8.

He was not required to bat as England got home after a late wobble with four wickets and seven deliveries in hand.
