Windies humble England in T20

Windies looks to extend winning streak

Ben Stokes has been rested for the shorter form but will return for five one-day internationals

Walton recovered, however, and he was behind the stumps as West Indies completed a 21-run win - their 11th in 15 Twenty20 internationals against England, a sequence including last year's World Twenty20 final triumph in India.

But captain Brathwaite bowled Hales as he took 3-20 to inspire his side's victory.

Morgan, out for two on Saturday, has managed just 12 runs in his last seven innings for Middlesex, Barbados Tridents and England.

"It's the batting certainly", Morgan said.

The powerful Jamaica left-hander, who did not feature in West Indies' recent 2-1 Test series loss in England, hit three fours and four sixes in just 21 balls after England captain Eoin Morgan sent the tourists into bat.

The hosts needed 26 off the last over and Brathwaite, fittingly, ended the match when he bowled Liam Plunkett.

And four balls later, West Indies' 106 for two had become 115 for three with Marlon Samuels, cramped for room, out for just 10 when he mistimed a drive to Root, at mid-on for the right-handed batsman.


Chris Gayle (40) and Lewis (51) got West Indies off to a flying start, putting on 77 for the first wicket after Morgan won the toss.

Watchful against the occasional off-spin of Joe Root, the man who dismissed him cheaply in the World Cup final previous year, Gayle exploded into life with a short arm jab into the seats of the Emirates Riverside pavilion off David Willey - becoming the first man to reach 100 sixes in Twenty20 internationals in the process.

But fast bowler Plunkett (three for 27) and leg-spinner Adil Rashid, whose figures of three for 25 were his best at this level, kept West Indies to under 200.

Lewis got into gear in the sixth over as he hit 16 runs in three balls off Tom Curran.

The Trinidadian, however, was out soon afterwards when he drove Plunkett to Root at mid-off.

"It's really disappointing. I've heard a lot of people say the Irish Cricket Board put a lot of money into this game and it's really unfortunate that we weren't able to put on a show for them but hopefully in the future we can be back here and spread some joy to the Irish people".

"We start the T20 series there - it's only a one-off T20 and then we're into the five-match ODI series".
