West Indies Considered Walk-off in Rain Curtailed Game

West Indies Considered Walk-off in Rain Curtailed Game

Earlier, West Indies made 176 for nine.

Gayle, 38 next Thursday, hit the England bowling attack with a typically brutal assault, living up to his self-imposed moniker of universe boss in the wake of his global captain Carlos Brathwaite bigging up opening partner Evin Lewis on arrival in the UK.

But jokes about the weather gave way to major concern when Windies wicket-keeper Chadwick Walton, changing direction to field a deflected ball, slipped and jarred his knee on an already wet outfield that had been exposed to yet more rain during the game.

The 29-year-old Bajan did not feature in West Indies' recent 2-1 Test series loss in England and has not been selected for the five ODIs that follow Saturday's lone Twenty20 of the tour at Durham's Riverside headquarters - Stokes's home ground.

"It's something I can't get away from.they even have us playing at his (Stokes's) home ground", said Brathwaite on Friday.

He added: "I probably still can't believe it happened but thankfully we have a T20 World Cup and I have a fantastic story to tell my kids, with the video footage to prove I'm not telling a lie".

Watson leads Texans to win in first career start
Both teams will go in search of their first win of the season, having lost their respective season-opening games on Sunday. Two years ago the Bengals running back combination of Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard were looked at as flawless compliments.

They required 26 from the final over but Liam Plunkett was bowled by Carlos Brathwaite with three balls remaining.

But the Yorkshire duo of fast bowler Plunkett, who took three for 27 in his maximum four overs, and leg-spinner Rashid, whose return of three for 25 was his best at this level, helped England regain the initiative in a match that represented a repeat of last year's World Twenty20 final - won by West Indies.

Hales's exit was the start of a slump that saw England lose three wickets for four runs as 64 for one soon became 68 for four.

"It's the batting certainly", Morgan said.

Now white-ball skipper Morgan wants to see an improved showing from England's batsmen when a five-match one-day global series against West Indies starts at Old Trafford on Tuesday. "We felt throughout the whole game it was a good wicket to bat on and to be chasing 177 we felt pretty confident at the halfway stage".

"Bowling at a pair like Lewis and Gayle was a huge opportunity to test ourselves and we didn't bowl that well", England captain Eoin Morgan said.
