Bowlers take Windies to 21-run victory over England - T20I

West Indies deny England again in one-off T20 in Durham

West Indies deny England again in one-off T20 in Durham

Three spectators suffered injuries, and a further 200 had to be moved to another part of the ground, following the partial collapse of a temporary stand at the Emirates Riverside during the T20I between England and West Indies.

In response Alex Hales struck a blistering 43 as England started strongly but the hosts fell to 68 for four and were all out for 155.

Conditions were soft and slippery, the umpires were close to calling it off actually, ' Carlos Brathwaite said.

Alex Hales ensured England got off to a fine start in their reply, hitting 43 off just 17 balls as he looks to stake a claim for the Ashes, but Windies took regular wickets and showed the form which enabled them to become World T20 champions a year ago.

As for West Indies, the openers in the form of swashbuckling openers Chris Gayle and Lewis made their way in as West Indies were off to a flying start.

"Losing the game was losing three wickets in that period", said Morgan.

Joe Root spooned Nurse to cover to depart for 17 off 19 deliveries, and Morgan extended his dismal sequence to 12 runs in seven innings for Middlesex, Barbados Tridents and England when he was caught for two trying to reverse sweep Narine.

The embattled Brathwaite formalised the result with three balls remaining when he went past Liam Plunkett's ugly swipe and bowled the England fast bowler to cap one of his better bowling performances in maroon since he was controversially elevated to captain a year ago.

In the end Rovman Powell's 28 was enough to lift the West Indies to 176/9 with a short rain delay stretching out the Windies innings.

But, ambling for a single after hitting the ball to backward point, Gayle was run out by Jason Roy's throw to bowler Liam Plunkett to leave West Indies 77 for one in the seventh over.

Two other spectators suffered minor injuries during the second innings of the match, which the West Indies won by 21 runs.

That match saw fellow left-hander Lewis make a stunning 125 not out.

The Caribbean this was not, but the tourists warmed up - metaphorically, at least - for Tuesday's first one-day global in Manchester with a convincing 21-run victory that hinged on their extra firepower.
