England vs West Indies

England wheel out their big guns for West Indies series

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.

But July saw him return to West Indies duty in a Twenty20 global against India in Kingston - his first major match for West Indies since they beat England in the World Twenty20 final in Kolkata past year.

Carlos Brathwaite- whose four sixes off successive balls from Ben Stokes in the last over had seen West Indies beat England in last year's World Twenty20 final - fell for just two on Saturday when bowled trying to sweep Rashid.

The first ball of England's reply saw Jason Roy caught at backward point by a diving Evin Lewis after he sliced a drive off Jerome Taylor.

However, Alex Hales (43) smashed eight fours and a six and took England to 64-1 inside the first batting powerplay.

Team News, England: England have two spinners in their squad - Adil Rashid and Liam Dawson - but will likely play just one given the expected conditions.

After a highly contested Test series between England and West Indies that went in favour of the hosts we get ready to embrace the limited-overs format.




Earlier, West Indies made 176 for nine.

They required 26 from the final over but Liam Plunkett was bowled by Carlos Brathwaite with three balls remaining.

The 37-year-old Gayle, in common with several senior West Indies players, had been involved in a bitter dispute with Caribbean cricket chiefs.

Much of their recent competition has come against former fellow Associate nations and the fixture against West Indies was an opportunity to put their skills against a full ICC member side.

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

But it nearly did not happen after Walton's injury, with Brathwaite telling a post-match news conference: "I had a chat with a few of the boys in a huddle while Chadwick was getting treatment and a lot of them said it was unsafe".

A rematch between the pair would have provided some much-needed context for a stand-alone fixture that could be seen as little more than a palate-cleanser between the Test and one-day worldwide courses.
