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


Defying a cold, dank autumnal night of the kind most of their team had never experienced let alone played cricket in and nearly refusing to continue, West Indies defeated England by 21 runs in the solitary Twenty20 between the sides.

Led by openers Chris Gayle (40) and Evin Lewis (51), West Indies got off to a ferocious start with the destructive Gayle bludgeoning four sixes before he was run out.

England skipper Eoin Morgan admitted: 'There was a little bit of rustiness in everything we did bar our fielding, which we did reasonably well.

A lovely full swing of the bat launched the ball straight or over mid-wicket.

Though Jason Roy was dismissed via the first ball of the England reply, Hales struck 43 from just 17 balls to put the home side in charge. Hales charged at Carlos Brathwaite and was bowled, before the West Indies spinners Ashley Nurse and Sunil Narine skidded the ball through.

The hosts were set 177 to win and looked odds-on to add to their Test series win after racing to 64 for 1 inside six overs.

Both Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo didn't play, the first time in Trumbo's two seasons with the Orioles that both sat out. After a brief discussion and no warmup throws, Hellickson remained in the game and walked Aaron Judge on four pitches.

Gayle's fun came to an end after the powerplay, though, as he ambled lazily for a single and was run out smartly by a combination of Jason Roy and Plunkett.

Deprived of the motivational presence of his old sparring partner Ben Stokes, Marlon Samuels made a subdued 10 from 13 balls, and Plunkett had three wickets in eight balls when Kieron Pollard top-edged a pull to long leg.

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 past year.
