West Indies beat England in their one-off Twenty20 by 21 runs at Chester-le-Street, Durham, England last week-end.

After being put in to bat, West Indies scored 176-9, from a whirlwind knock openers Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis.

Captain Carlos Brathwaite (3-20) and Kesrick Williams (3-35) underminded England’s comeback.

Spinner Sunil Narine grabbed 2-15 from four overs and England were bowled out for 155 with three balls to spare.

Earlier Gayle and Lewis smashed 72 runs off 39 balls for the opening wicket before West Indies lost their momentum. Lewis made 51 off 28 balls and Gayle 40 of 21 balls.

West Indies then stumbled and lost nine wickets for 104 runs. England lost Jason Roy off the very first ball of its run chase when he was dismissed by Jerome Taylor.

However, Alex Hales (43) smashed eight fours and a six and took England to 64-1 inside the first batting power play. England could only manage to reach 155.

After the match, Narine said the return of some of the Twenty20 stars to regional colors was a welcome sign and also welcomed Gayle to the side at the top of the order as well as the captaincy of Brathwaite.
