Spectators injured as stand partially collapses in Durham

Led by openers Chris Gayle (40) and Evin Lewis (51), West Indies got off to a ferocious start with Gayle bludgeoning four sixes before he was run out.

And some fine death bowling at the back end of the innings helped dismiss England for 155 and deny Morgan's side revenge after their defeat in the World T20 final 18 months ago at Eden Gardens. He now has 103 sixes in 52 matches.

This time, paceman Brathwaite damaged England with the ball when, in his only match of the tour - - he was not selected for the Test or one-day worldwide legs - he took three for 20 runs in 3.3 overs.

The North East ambulance service responded to a 999 call from the ground and took one of the injured parties to Newcastle's RVI Hospital, with "non life-threatening injuries", later confirmed as a broken leg.

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

Earlier, West Indies made 176 for nine.

Liverpool sees familiar failings as Burnley deny Jurgen Klopp's men at Anfield
Burnley go into the game level on points with Liverpool and managed to prevail past Crystal Palace last weekend. Liverpool were relatively untroubled for most of the game, but they always find a way to stumble in matches.

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.

The third over saw Gayle smash left-arm paceman Willey for two successive sixes - a pull followed by a straight drive.

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

The latest perceived slight for the one-off evening Twenty20 match to be played against West Indies on Saturday night - temperatures are expected to peak at 13C at around 6.30pm and decline steadily from there - is the omission of the local hero, Ben Stokes.

The best of his four maximums went like a tracer bullet over cover off Chris Jordan, before Lewis got in on the act by taking 16 from Tom Curran's first three balls of the sixth over.

Brathwaite, who smashed four sixes off four balls in the final over of Ben Stokes as the Windies won the World Twenty20 final past year, did the damage with the ball this time, taking 3-20 in 3.3 overs.
