Three injured after section of stand collapses at Durham cricket global

Chester-le-Street:: West Indian all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite would like to prove his World Twenty20-winning heroics were no fluke when he leads the Caribbean side against England in a repeat of the 2016 final at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.

Rashid took a career-best best three for 25, including Brathwaite - slayer of Stokes in the World Twenty20 final previous year - bowled round his legs on the sweep for two.

"This was probably more challenging; the conditions were hard to deal with and I think the umpires were close to calling it off, but I was pleased with the boys".

"I can see both sides of it, of course guys want to see him play", he said.

He added: "We kind of gave it an ultimatum. we got the outfield roped and we were in agreement that if it continued to be unsafe or if anything dramatic or drastic happened we'd call it quits".

Brathwaite, however, bowled Hales for 43 made off just 17 balls, including eight fours and a six.

From 68 for four Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow added 50, but the run rate was almost 10 an over and struggling England needed to start scampering twos.

England were dismissed for 155 in reply, with Brathwaite taking 3-20, including the final wicket of Liam Plunkett (18).

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.

England went on to lose the match against the Windies by 21 runs after rain delays.

But Morgan understands that the shortest format must play its part in England's long game, particularly with an Australia tour on the horizon.

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 led the way with 51 off 28 balls that included six fours and three sixes and Gayle smote three fours and four sixes in 40 from 21 balls in an opening stand of 77.

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

Windies total was based on an electric start from Chris Gayle and Lewis who scored 72 in the six over Powerplay, hitting seven fours and six sixes, one of which saw Gayle became the first man to a hundred sixes in T20I cricket.
