Courtney Browne and Ian Bradshaw have been jointly named Barbados Sports Personality of the Year award.

The pair shared a match-winning stand for West Indies in the ICC Champions Trophy final against England.

West Indies eventually won the game by two wickets, their biggest one-day win since the 1979 World Cup.

"It's an honour and privilege to represent the people of Barbados and to be given such a prestigious award," Browne commented.

Chasing a target of 218, West Indies looked a beaten side when they slumped to 147-8, but Bradshaw and Browne put on 71 to see them home in fading light.

Bradshaw hit the winning boundary to finish 34 not out, with his partner on 35.

The pair were chosen for the award ahead of cyclist Barry Forde, sprinter Obadele Thompson and international draughts player Ronald King.

They are now preparing for the VB Series tournament in Australia, which will see West Indies return to action for the first time since their Champions Trophy win.

Pakistan are the other team taking part in the triangular competition.
