    OUT! Bowled. Carlos Brathwaite to Liam Plunkett. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed. Leg stump goes for a walk as Plunkett can only swish at thin air, the World T20 champions have flexed their muscles in alien conditions tonight to win this one off T20I in Durham.

    A comfortable victory in the end for the tourists, they will be delighted with that effort in freezing cold, slippery circumstances. They got off to an outrageous start as the dynamic duo, the master and the apprentice, Chris Gayle (40) and Evin Lewis (51) launched into a devastating attack. The hosts pulled things back through Liam Plunkett (3/27) and Adil Rashid (3/25), and then got off to their own blistering start courtesy of a boisterous Alex Hales (43). But things fell away for them once the spinners got to work, and in the end the West Indies bowling was clinical. That puts down a nice marker ahead of the five match ODI series starting on Tuesday.
