West Indies deny England again in one-off T20 in Durham

Eoin Morgan believes Ben Stokes will benefit from the break

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.

Put into bat first, West Indies post 176/9.

Almost 13,000 spectators at Riverside Ground will miss their local hero Stokes in action and also his battle with West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite that was one of the defining moment in the 2016 World T20 final at Eden Gardens.

"Conditions were soft and slippery, the umpires were close to calling it off actually".

West Indies got off to a quickfire start and was 106 for one midway through its innings before Liam Plunkett and Adil Rashid took three wickets apiece to restrict the tourists to 176 for nine. 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.

Hales (43) hit boundaries at will but after looking set to record the fastest England T20I fifty he marched down the wicket to Carlos Brathwaite yorking himself and losing his off stump.
