West Indies beat England as Chris Gayle smashes 100th T20I six

West Indies defied inclement conditions to defeat England by 21 runs in the one-off T20 global at Chester-le-Street.

"This was probably the more challenging of our recent wins", Brathwaite told Sky Sports.

"I am now heading off to Manchester to support the Red Devils (Manchester United) against Everton tomorrow (Sunday)", he explained.

Brathwaite, however, bowled Hales for 43 made off just 17 balls, including eight fours and a six.

Jos Buttler [30] and Jonny Bairstow [27] showed some resistance but Braithwaite and Sunil Narine came to the fore at the death as the West Indies claimed their 11th win in 15 matches with England, and fourth in a row.

West Indies got off to a flyer with Gayle and Lewis before England looked to have pegged them back and at the halfway stage England would have been the happier of the two teams requiring 177 in the run chase to win.

And the elder Curran brother, who made such an impact on debut for England in the Twenty20 series against South Africa earlier this season, is the only real 50-over newcomer as the selectors have chose to wheel out their big guns.

West Indies got off to a quick-fire start and were 106-1 midway through their innings before Liam Plunkett and Adil Rashid took three wickets apiece to restrict the tourists to 176-9.

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

Gayle has not represented the Windies in the longest format of the game since 2014, as the West Indies Cricket Board quarrelled with him and other players that have focused on franchise Twenty20 cricket.

The court also ordered to adjourn the verdict on other 13 defendants in that case to 25 November. The defendants are also charged with participating in the beheading of 21 Egyptians in Libya.

Lewis got into gear in the sixth over as he hit 16 runs in three balls off Tom Curran.

But Gayle's 21-ball innings, featuring three fours and four sixes ended when, after guiding Plunkett to backward point, he was run out by Jason Roy's throw to the bowler as he ambled through for a single after stopping half way.

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

But the upcoming white-ball clashes are set to see West Indies, who beat England in the 2016 World Twenty20 final in Kolkata, India, bolstered by the likes of powerful opening batsman Chris Gayle.

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