Three injured after section of stand collapses at Durham cricket global

Three injured after section of stand collapses at Durham cricket global

A sell-out Durham crowd will be denied a rematch between local favourite Ben Stokes and his World Twenty20 conqueror Carlos Brathwaite on Saturday, but England captain Eoin Morgan insists resting the all-rounder is the right decision.

England won the toss and put the West Indies in to bat on a bitterly cold evening but it didn't take long for Chris Gayle to tee off.

That looked below-par on a good wicket, but after Alex Hales provided fireworks with 43 off 17, England fell away and were dismissed for 155 in the final over.

England's response got off to a bad start with Jason Roy caught for a first-ball duck, and Hales was dropped on zero before he was bowled by Brathwaite having smashed eight fours and one six. He now has 103 sixes in 52 matches.

The North East Ambulance Service responded to a 999 call and took the woman to Newcastle's RVI Hospital, where she was admitted and kept overnight.

Windies skipper Carlos Brathwaite said it was a challenging game, given the conditions and praised his players for pulling off the win.

The embattled Brathwaite formalised the result with three balls remaining when he went past Liam Plunkett's ugly swipe and bowled the England fast bowler to cap one of his better bowling performances in maroon since he was controversially elevated to captain previous year.

In the end Rovman Powell's 28 was enough to lift the West Indies to 176/9 with a short rain delay stretching out the Windies innings.

"Losing the game was losing three wickets in that period", said Morgan.

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

But July saw him return to West Indies duty in a Twenty20 worldwide against India in Kingston.

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

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.

England and West Indies begin a five-match one-day worldwide series in Manchester on Tuesday.
